How to Write Enticing Content for a Niche Market
Do you have a product or service that is so specific that general content can’t get your brand ranked on search engines?
Writing great content for a brand in a niche market may seem like an insurmountable obstacle. However, with knowledge of search engine optimization (SEO) and an understanding of how to present your content, writing for a niche market can produce high-ranking pieces and get your brand noticed!
What is a Niche Market?
To put it simply, a niche market is a small chunk of an overall larger market. A good example of this in the fitness world could be strength-training. On its own, it is a niche market that lies within
the more saturated realm of physical fitness.
Whatever your niche is, your content is going to have to be specific, relevant and go beyond broad industry keywords in order for your target audience to find it.
Writing content for a niche market takes a bit of practice. However, the right tools and approach to content creation can help you quickly master the art of niche content creation.
Before your next blog post, keep these tips in mind for content success.
A Boring Niche Doesn’t Exist in SEO
Remember, your content is only as exciting and effective as you make it. There is no such thing as a “boring” niche.
If there is an audience for your product, then there is an audience that will enjoy and share well-written content that focuses on topics within your industry.
If you have a product or service that is useful or connected to a topic that people find interesting, narrow in on that topic and make it exciting, and above all, make it SEO-friendly.
Some of the steps you can take to create content that’s attractive to audiences and search engines include:
- Answer any and all questions about a certain topic. Research everything you can and become an “expert” on a certain subject. As you continue producing quality work, people will view your website as an authoritative source of information and share your content like wildfire.
- Use a keyword research tool to find industry keywords that your market is currently talking about. From there, craft your content to use those keywords and improve your chances of visibility.
- Explore Facebook groups and online threads that focus on your topic. Not only can you find great article ideas from these sources, but they are also going to be essential places for you to post and get your articles read and shared.
While you may think that your niche is “boring,” its uniqueness actually poses as a route to success. Where competitiveness may prevent other sites from sharing more popular topics in your industry, a competitor or related site may find your niche content and share it just because it is that relevant to your market’s audience.
When your “boring” niche can get another company to let down their SEO guard, it’s proof that great writing can make any topic exciting!
Nail Down Industry Jargon
If you’re new to your niche market, research all of the jargon that anyone “in the know” is using. Perform extensive keyword research, look up definitions of terms you aren’t familiar with, and start thinking of ways you can use them in your writing.
You don’t want to oversaturate your work with industry jargon. Only use it enough to let your readers know that your brand is the authority on a certain topic and they should trust you.
Create Content at Your Target Audience’s Level
Writing with industry jargon lets readers know that you understand what you’re talking about. However, writing with too much technical detail can send an important message directly over your target audience’s heads.
During the creation process, keep your actual audience in mind and focus on achieving the balance of providing basic knowledge of your topic and the technical edge that will give your content the professionalism it needs!
Keep Idea Generation Tools in Your Back Pocket
Writing for a niche audience can lead to a writer draining all of their good ideas, fast! However, there are several resources a writer can use that get the creative juices flowing again.
Aside from directly reaching out to your audience using social media marketing strategies, some ways you can keep generating relevant ideas include:
- Following industry news closely and connecting your product to specific happenings. We’ve found that even though these blog topics are rarely evergreen, if you can get them out in a timely manner, they can still create buzz and achieve value for your website.
- We’ve mentioned forums before, but subscribing to industry forums and scanning Quora for questions about your services can help you uncover relevant blog topics.
- Investment in a high-quality SEO tool like SEMRush. These tools often have topic research sections that generate what people are asking about specific topics and keywords.
Check-in On Your Competition’s Strategy
Finally, it never hurts to look in on what your local and national competitors are doing to get ahead of you in the search engine race. Examine several of your top competitors and consider:
- The tone of their content
- The length of their content
- The topics they are writing about
We aren’t saying to go out and rip them off. That’s plagiarism and will quickly get you knocked out of the Google game. All you’re trying to do is pick up on their cues and morph into a similar type of writer that creates related, out-of-the-box industry content.
