How To Start A Blog About Aerial Photography [With Full Niche Research]

Are you currently researching how to start a blog about Aerial Photography?  Aerial Photography is very popular with novices and experts and there are thousands of searches on Google every month from people interested in this industry. From customers and companies looking to hire an Aerial photographer to novices and experts researching aerial photography gear, and looking up ‘how to’ tutorials etc.

If starting a blog in the Aerial Photography Niche is something you would like to build a blogging business around then awesome, as today I am doing a deep dive into this niche and will give you some really amazing tips and niche insights that will get you off to a fantastic start.

Knowing you’re perfect reader/customers avatar in any niche, is crucially important. Doing deep research into your chosen niche will put you ahead of the competition every time.

Most unsuccessful bloggers only ever write content which they think their readers will enjoy. They then go and promote products and services they ‘think’ their readers will buy/use.

This is the wrong way to go about things.

Throwing s*** at the wall hoping it sticks is for amateurs. 

You must understand your customer/reader. You must find out what kind of media they are consuming online, products they are buying, posts they like, videos they share etc.

So today Aerial Photography is the niche topic I will be covering. You are going to find this information incredibly useful when you go to start writing content on your blog.

But one thing before we proceed…

Creating a Blog is one thing. Being successful at it is another. I wish it were as simple as writing a few posts per week and waiting on the money rolling in, but it takes a lot more than that. Following a content strategy, Monetizing your blog in the right way, finding the right keywords. Do all or any of these wrong and you are wasting your time.

Myself and a small mentoring group are all part of Wealthy Affiliate University. If you’ve never heard of it it’s basically a platform for bloggers to network together, help each other etc. It also supplies the tools to actually create a successful blog, find the keywords and the right products to promote and gives full training on every aspect of this business. I created this blog right on the platform. It’s a must-have for all aspiring bloggers to be successful online.

Don’t worry, you can join for free.  The free membership is free for life. The premium membership is $49 per month (I have a $30 off coupon below) You DO NOT NEED the premium account to be successful. I have many friends who never upgraded and who do well with their blogs.

Ok back to business

Researching the Aerial Photography Niche took me around 3.5 hours and I have gathered some awesome insights and info you can use right out the gate.

The information I have researched below has all been done via Facebook analytics. This info is freely available to anyone. I have extensive knowledge with Facebook ads the info I will be providing you below has been researched using the Facebook ads platform.

The data Facebook collects on every one of its users is incredible. Most people don’t realise that Facebook is simply an ads platform, just like google. They make Billions selling ad space to businesses all over the world using the data collected from its users so businesses can hyper-target their perfect customer.

That’s why you always see ads on your Facebook feed related to something you like or are interested in…

That’s NOT by chance. Pretty scary right?

But you can use this to your advantage.

Let’s take a look at the info I have gathered below!
