Audience overview worldwide

 

Now let’s get to the topic right away. Starting a political news website can be a tricky decision, considering that many big players are currently dominating the market.

 

Selecting the Niche of your Political Blog

Until or unless you already have a massive sum of money to invest, you should not be thinking of competing with the likes of CNN, BBC, New York Times, or Aljazeera. Therefore, deciding the niche of your political website is the most important decision that you have to make initially.

If you are a beginner, starting from one specific niche and expanding from there is the best thing that you can do with your website. For instance, if you want to start in this arena, consider picking up one of the following micro-niches and then expand your business outward.

Some of the niches ideas for political blogs are:

 

  • Political commentary
  • Opinion writing
  • Left-leaning blog
  • Conservative political blog
  • Racism commentary
  • Human rights
  • Voter suppression
  • Elections
  • Congressional commentary
  • Political economy
  • Election campaigns
  • International political economy

 

Just make sure that whatever niche you choose, stick with it, and write as much content about it as possible, without compromising the quality, of course. This will help you establish your authority in the niche, which Google loves a lot.

It is recommended to start with a small niche and then expand step by step so that you have enough topics to write about.

How to Choose a Domain Name for your Political Blog?

Choosing a domain name can be tricky at times.

If you want to be a citizen journalist, you can always have a domain name with your name in it, as I have with Mshomi.com.

Otherwise, you can get a domain name that is easy to remember, as it will help you in brand building in the longer run.

Choosing Themes for Your Political Blog

Once you are done getting a domain and hosting, now it’s time to choose your theme to build your own website. I recommend using Thrive Themes for this purpose, as it has a variety of tools that will make your website stand out.

  • Create the website
  • Make landing pages and sales funnels that convert
  • Build an email marketing list
  • Create stylish pop-ups and forms
  • Create quizzes
  • Make and sell online courses
  • Increase conversions with scarcity campaigns

And much more.

By this time, you should have completed getting your domain name, hosting, and theme. Now the real fun starts.
