If you are looking for the Top 15 Video Themes for Word Press you are in the right place. However, this is not the main point of this post. You can search and find a ton of post about the great video themes for Word Press. My job is to show you how to put one of these themes to practical use and create a niche blog out of it and make money.

On Niche Video Blogging

The point of creating a niche video site is because people will sit on your website and watch videos. This helps keep your bounce rate low, your ad impressions high, and income coming in. I created a while back as a niche video site teaching people how to breakdance. I basically find the best breakdance moves tutorials on You Tube and organize them on the website.

This makes it easy for people to find the different moves and watch and learn online. You can do this for any subject or niche you are interesting. Salsa dancing, fencing, MMA moves, baking videos or whatever else you are into. I use a video theme from Templatic that I will be switching out for one of the ones below. The theme I use did not make the list because it has some auto draft bugs that make the site look terrible. My job is to put you on the right path based off the mistakes I’ve made, not set you up for failure.

Action Steps

  1. Think of a niche
  2. Buy a domain name that fits that niche
  3. Buy a template below
  4. Launch the site and curate your videos
  5. Set up Google Adsense
  6. Rinse and repeat
If you don’t know how to set up a blog here is a post I wrote a while back teaching you how to build a blog.
