How to Stand Out From The Crowded Niche: 5 Tips From The Probloggers

24 Flares 24 Flares ×

A survey says that there are more than 20,000 blogs are taking birth daily..! More than 30million blogs are running on self-hosted platform like WordPress.org (may be there are running more than this now!)

So, you will agree by looking at the stats there is soo much competition for the new blogs and even existing blogs have to strive for their existence. No doubt in it, isn’t it?

How one can make a difference in such crowded niche and how one can create his/her own brand? Well, I tried to answer about this myself – but I thought to not answer (because I’m not so experienced to answer such a mighty question).

Stand out from crowded niche

I immediately contacted some of the top bloggers in the blogosphere (whom I like most) – 5 out of the 10 professional bloggers gave me the immediate reply to my question “How Do You Stand Out from the Crowded Niche?”

Thanks a million to Yaro StarakBrian D.Hawkins, Ali Luke, Ileane Smith and Jane Sheeba.

How to Stand Out From The Crowded Niche?

You can stand out in a crowded niche by doing original things and then reporting results back to people using stories.

Network with everyone, listen to the pros and then do what you think will help. In other words, don’t just follow everyone.

I make my content easy to access and expand my reach by providing 3 formats – the blog, You Tube and the podcast.

I listen very carefully to the problems and challenges my reader face and try to provide solutions to help them move forward.

First of all it is better not to choose a crowded niche – a good example of one is the internet marketing niche. It is already so crowded and I see that new bloggers are jumping into this niche every hour.

The problem is this – they start by reading “how to blog” and “how to be a successful blogger” and so on but they find it comfortable to start a new blog in the same niche. It is because they read a lot of blogging tips blogs, they come to know quite some blogging tips, so even though they themselves have not achieved anything, they start to talk about blogging tips; because they know some theory.

Rather they should be finding untapped, unsaturated niches and apply what they learnt from blogging tips blogs. This will not only make them stand out easily but will also help them achieve quicker success without much pain and effort.

OK now, if they’re already in the blogging tips niche for quite some time so that they can’t go back, all I would advise is to stop faking it until they make it. If bloggers share EVERY little strategy (or a software or anything else) they tried and share the results (success or failures, like case studies) it will be much easier for them to stand out, plus what they publish on their blogs will be highly useful for the readers, making their blogs one of a kind.

In short: Share your own experiences, what worked for you, what didn’t and why. Instead of publishing theories, share your practical experiences. You can rock it easily.

BTW, Jane replied me through email. You can follow her via twitter @JaneSheeba

    Hi Rahul!
    I am back again with my weird comment (again lol).
    Every time I hear someone tell a beginner not to enter a niche because it’s too crowded, I feel like screaming. Yes, I know this is the standard advice, but it’s just not true.
    Crowded niches got that way for a reason: they work. Your best bet for succeeding with your blog is to find a subject lots of people are blogging about, and then start a blog about the exact same subject.
    You don’t want to be a copycat. Just look for the hidden benefits behind an audience’s interest in your topic, and target those benefits instead.
    For a savvy marketer, no niche is ever too crowded. Standing out is a matter of having a more intimate understanding of your readers than the competition.
    Let the hidden benefits guide you, and you’ll beat them every time.

    Nothing personal. Just expressing my views.

    And yeah! Thanks to Ms. ileane. She is motivated and I am really inspired from her. You are legend/god for me.

    • I always love your comments Amrik. They are short blog posts on any blog ;). Highly engaging and insightful.

      I totally agree with your thoughts. Thanks for dropping your comment..
