One of our readers recently brought up an interesting subject in the comments recently. They were wondering how someone who is currently a full-time parent can market themselves as being knowledgeable about a specific niche topic. The good news is that you know more than you think you do, and there are several topics that you would be quite comfortable writing about, if you give it a bit of thought.
For example, if you are a parent, you have knowledge about quite a few subjects that may turn into lucrative niches for you to write about. Here are some examples that may apply:
- Sleep deprivation
- Childhood diseases
- First Aid
- Breast feeding
- Bottle feeding
- Kids Clothes/Furniture
- Child Safety
- Time management
If you are a college student or a graduate, you can write about:
- College life
- Choosing a college/major
- Student loans
Do you have a hobby? Do you follow any sports regularly? Have you ever played a sport? Have you ever taken out a bank loan, bought or sold a house, or refinanced your home? Is there another subject that you find fascinating? What topics make you light up like a Christmas tree when you talk about them?
Make a list and find clients who will pay you to write about them. Your passion for the topic will come out in your writing, and will give you an advantage over someone who is looking at it as just another assignment.
Have you used your previous life experience to create a niche for your writing?
