9 Types Of Post That’ll Ensure You Never Run Out Of Niche Site Content

9 Types of Evergreen Niche Site Content

A lot of people have asked me niche site content questions. I used to give the general “find a niche where you’ll have enough content” advice, but now I don’t.

I gained the ability to write many, many articles about basically nothing by doing my time in the content mill trenches. It was a great experience because it forever robbed me of writer’s block.

If you can write a 2,000 word review of a paper wallet, then you can probably summon the ability to write about anything.

Most people won’t create a niche site so narrow that it’s about paper wallets. It would be self-defeating.

Assuming you write a little more broadly than that, you should never run out of ideas for your niche site again.

I’ll tell you how in this article. It consists of two parts:

  1. Approach your niche like an authority
  2. Understand how most “content marketing” is a simple formula regurgitated.

I’ll talk about 1 in the next section, and give you some ideas for two afterwards. For those of you who can’t find the time to read the article, here’s a quick list:

  1. The List Article
  2. Random Bit Of News/Industry Gossip
  3. “Your Journey” Update
  4. “Is X A Scam?”
  5. “An Overview Of The Options Available”
  6. Weekly/Monthly Reading List
  7. Repeat Information For Different Niche/Audience
  8. “Round Up Of Key/Latest/Trending Posts”
  9. “Does X Still Work In 2017?”

Let’s get to it.

Think And Write Like An Authority

This has been the theme over the past couple of weeks of Niche Site articles.

You can read my thoughts here and here.

To summarise though, you can make a big mistake by thinking in terms of the products or anal-retentive specifics of your niche site first and the theme second.

For instance, our guy from above who creates a website called “PaperWalletReviews.com” is going to run out of ideas for niche site content fast, and let’s just say his potential to go viral is limited at best.

Something along the same lines but with a different outlook might be “TheAnalRetentiveOfficeClerk.com”

Imagine a secretary guru who is devoted to finding the best deals on stationary from all across the globe – you’d probably read his quirky site and trust his paper wallet reviews too.

Same niche, different angle.

Remember, niche sites and affiliate SEO and all of that sort of technical stuff are just a form of monetisation; at its core, any website is a store of knowledge and value, and how you make money from it is a secondary issue for the reader.

Happy reader, happy site.

Evergreen Niche Site Content Formats

Let’s look at the list above once more:

  1. The List Article
  2. Random Bit Of News/Industry Gossip
  3. “Your Journey” Update
  4. “Is X A Scam?”
  5. “An Overview Of The Options Available”
  6. Weekly/Monthly Reading List
  7. Repeat Information For Different Niche/Audience
  8. “Round Up Of Key/Latest/Trending Posts”
  9. “Does X Still Work In 2017?”

I was planning on going through these, but they’re all pretty self-explanatory.

Most of your niche site articles are going to be concerned with pushing your readers into your affiliate links (because that’s how you make money.)

Sometimes though, that won’t be enough. A website with ten articles on it won’t get all that much traffic and if your only strategy for this is to write more reviews your site will look not so legitimate (which is a minor issue) and you’ll struggle or otherwise be discouraged because affiliate sales letter articles take work.

Sometimes, you’ll want to fill your site with articles that don’t take hours to create. Also, you might have written thirty product reviews and you want to update your site once a month so the relevant powers that be recognise your site as still relevant. To do this, you’ll want something quick and easy.

So, use some of the above templates because they require no work whatsoever except for typing them out.

Writing ten product reviews will take you hours. Writing an article comparing the same ten products will take you an hour at most and you won’t need too many details.

If you’ve written an article that’s entitled “Weight loss for fat girls” you can also write one called “weight loss for fat guys” and the information will basically be the same.

It’s all a game of making your words go further.

Final Thoughts

Constant new content is hard to create and hard to get enthusiastic about past a certain stage. However, it’s necessary. You should make it easy on yourself by creating little lists like I’ve done above. The additional content can be used for all kinds of reasons; pushing people to your reviews, pushing readers straight to your affiliate links or just as window dressing to bolster your site and make it look more active as opposed to some affiliate marketing project.

Of course your niche site probably is an affiliate marketing project, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be useful and look good at the same time.
