Passion – How to Identify a Niche You’re Passionate About

Australian Outback

If you want to start an online business that will last for the long term you need to pursue your passion. When you have a passion for something, you will dig into it as much as you possibly can.Trying to just “make money online” will not see you through difficult times. Out of your passion emerges your vision..where you want to be in 10 or 15 years time.

How to identify your passion

1. Create a list of ideas you’re passionate about.

Think of the activities and interests that fire you up. These may include people, books, events, sports, traveling, etc. Create a long list by dumping all the ideas in your brain on paper. Don’t stop until you’ve run out of ideas.

2. Prioritize your list of passions.

Now go through your list and select 10 ideas you feel most passionate about. Keep in mind you will be writing lots of content based on the ideas you select.

Example

I have an uncle in New Zealand who is very passionate about the flora and fauna in the Australian desert. Every year he goes on safari across the desert with his wife studying the plants and and animals he encounters along the way. He reads tons of books and magazines about the desert, paints, photographs and takes videos.

He’ll talk to you for hours if you’re interested. He’s an expert on his passion. He still goes on safari at age 90 (I think it helps him lead a thriving life in at his age).

3. How to profit from your passion

If my uncle were to start an online business about the Australian outback he would never run out of things to write about. There are thousands of others in the world who are also passionate about the same topic. He could market to this targeted group by writing articles and monetizing his web site with affiliate products (or create his own). By writing and publishing articles about his interest he could drive traffic to his web site. When visitors click the links to his affiliate sites he’ll earn a commission for every sale.

You can do the same once you’ve identified your passion.

4. How to keep in touch with your passion

It’s easy to lose site of your passion when consumed with everyday tasks. To prevent this from happening hang pictures on the wall that clearly illustrate your passion so they remind you everyday (ie beautiful sunset picture of the Australian Outback).

Spend a few moments each day before you start work visualizing your passion. This will keep your mind focused on the big picture while you work on the small steps you need to take for building your online business.
