Finding niche market ideas

For online writers, finding topics to write about can sometimes be daunting. If the topic is too broad the internet is flooded with articles about that particular subject and as a result your well crafted page could get buried beneath a virtual mountain of other articles.

Finding a niche market to write about isn't always easy. Sometimes it is difficult to target something specific, but target you must if you want to find yourself near the front page of a search engine. Often all that is needed is a little inspiration to get the ideas flowing.

I have created a list of topics to write about for niche markets. This is in itself a very broad subject so I have decided to break it down alphabetically. Of course more will be added to the list so check back often. The following ideas are merely suggestions for you to take away and hopefully write your best page ever.

I write here on Hubpages and you can too. It is free to join and you can write about topics of your choosing. There is an online writing community second to none, who welcome and encourage new writers. If you are just starting out, this is a great place to begin your online writing career. Each and everyone of us started where you are now, wondering if we should sign up. We all did and now we are making money not just from our current articles but also from those we wrote when we first began! We are all building a passive income stream for our futures, you can too.

Let's get started with the niche market ideas beginning with the letter "A"

Creative topics for writing

A. I (artificial intelligence) Do you believe in aliens? Share your thoughts, sightings or close encounters? Which movies about aliens do you like?

AIDS: Do you or someone you know have AIDS. Do you have any tips for coping with this? You could discuss your side effects of medication. Are your friends HIV+? Explain your feelings.

Accounting: Everyone wants advice about accounting. Share your experience about various accounting software, tax advice, etc. this is a vast area for writing ideas.

Acting: Can you give advice about how to begin an acting career. Which schools are best, or any how-to or how not to observations. This could be everything from the big screen to local plays.

Action Movies: Which are your favourite action films, make a list. Or tell people how to make action films. Who are your favourite actors from them. Where are the best ones made.

Activism: What causes are you passionate about? Write about them. Encourage others to be passionate about their causes. Can you tell people how to organise a group of people?

Subjects to write about

Adult movies: This could be a tricky one because if you are too specific it could get your page banned. Suggest methods for making a film, but keep your language clean. Or suggest places to buy these films. How this type of film genre has changed through the years perhaps.

Advertising: Wow, what a broad subject. Advertising can be about getting known here on the internet or about brands and their advertising. Topics such as the best place for backlinks to discussing the advertising budget of Coca-Cola. Everything is about advertising and sales.

Africa. Again, a lot of scope for several pages, culture, traditions, languages, scenery. The best places to visit, marinas in South Africa.

African Americans: This topic should inspire you to write many pages. These could range from the initial journey to America and other countries. From racism to famous African Americans to traditional foods. An absolute bounty of potential topics.

Aging: Something we all have to contend with, therefore it is a huge subject. This could be everything from skin care to nursing care. Medical issues to traveling the globe as a senior.

Agriculture: Farming can cover everything from how to grow crops, to the changing face of agriculture. Small and large scale farms, unusual farming activities.

Inspiration for articles

Airbrushing: Are you an artist who uses airbrushing. Write about this

Aircraft Spotting: A quirky yet popular past time enjoyed by many. Explain your passion and share your photos.

Airsoft: Do you like to run through the woods shooting at other people? Well a lot of people do. Suggest equipment, strategies and places to go.

Alcoholic drinks: Do you know a daiquiri from a rusty nail? Are your skills always called upon to make drinks at a party? Then write about it.

Alternative energy: Wind turbines, wave power, solar power, which if any do you use? Have you constructed DIY solar panels for you home. Great! Now document it. These types of 'how to' articles do well.

Alternative health: Do you have any home remedies that will cure common problems. Are you yourself a herbalist?

Ideas for writing pages

Anthropology : In school I loved anthropology, because I had a great teacher. She was so passionate about her subject. If you are as well, write about it. Share with everyone.
