Do You Have To Have A Niche
To Be Successful Online?
This could be a really short message and I could simply tell you that “yes” you do need a niche to be successful online. Because I firmly believe a niche is important.
However, I’d be lying to you if I told you that you HAVE to have a niche.
You don’t have to have a niche to be successful if you:
Build a following because you have an amazing voice. Many bloggers have inadvertently turned their hobby blog into a money making blog by accident. They were simply blogging because they wanted to. However, by nature of blogging about a hobby or a passion they also had a niche – albeit accidentally.
Don’t care that it may take you years to achieve notable status. If you don’t mind competing with the major websites who tend to dominate the broad categories – think WebMD for the broad topic of health – then you can choose whatever topic you want and devote your time, energy and patience to eventually maybe having a successful site.
Finally, there are always exceptions to the rule. To say that you can never succeed unless you have a niche would be absurd. For every “rule” there’s most likely an example of someone who has broken the rule and achieved success.
Still, choosing a niche is most likely the fastest and surest way to achieve online success. I strongly recommend you take the time and effort necessary to find your ideal niche!
