How to Write Informative Articles for your Niche Market

Sep 12, 2008
A niche is a special area of demand for a product or service that is not being addressed by common providers. A niche market is composed of individuals or businesses that can be a group of potential customers. The niche market evolves when a demand for a product or service is not supplied by the usual contributors. The same market also develops when a new demand occurs because of societal, technological or environmental changes.

Niche marketing is simply finding a great product or service for highly profitable target consumers. Niche markets can be extremely lucrative, but you need to find qualified traffic. To do this, you have to write articles that would specifically attract buyers of your product or service. This way, you get to gather people who are really interested.

Now how can you write effective articles for a certain niche?

1. Define your niche market first to have an idea who will be your readers. Research on what type of information your market wants to read. You can do surveys or even interviews if possible.

2. Write informative articles that answer the needs of your niche market. You want your readers to browse through your website, clicking on one related article to another. If your articles do not tackle the subject they are interested in, you readers will leave and look for other sources.

3. Write concise articles (300-700 words) directed at topics that are immediately related to the specific niche.

For example, if your niche is about Sushi, you can write the following articles:
- What sort of rice is used in making Sushi
- What are the most common Sushi platters
- What kind of seafood is usually used for Sushi
- How to store your ingredients
- Where to buy seaweed wrap
- How to pick fresh fish
- Alternative fish products for people with allergies
- Which is better: Wasabe in paste or powder?

4. Come up with other related topics and articles that someone reading your article might search for next. If your website contains all this content, you may find readers staying interested in your website for a long time. They can even bring in more visitors to view your website.

5. Do a keyword research using keyword tools (e.g. Overture Suggestion Tool) to check how many people are searching each month on keywords related to the niche you're writing about. Look for keywords that generate few searches in a month and use these keywords in your articles to create a high ranking on search engines.

6. Research on all related topics to constantly come up with new, updated, unique content that will appeal to your niche market and make them want to visit your web site time and again.

7. Include the link of your niche marketing website in your article.

Through these articles, you can market your niche and direct a big bulk of traffic to your niche marketing website. By keeping your articles new, original and well-written, you can leave a positive impression on your readers and gain even more visitors to your niche website. While you research and write more articles related to your niche, you become a valuable source of information in a less competitive market, giving you an opportunity to be very profitable and to become an expert in your niche.
