* If you are writing about a movie, you should know the industry, have knowledge about the actors, be familiar with reviews of the film, be able to identify it's intended audenice.
* If you are writing about a sale or deal, you should be able to analyze whether it is a good deal or a scam, why the price has dropped, what the future of the product is, how it compares price-wise to others.
* If you are writing about a store or an offer - how does the offer work, what does it include, what's the fine print, what does a shopper need to know?
These are just a few examples - the niche is actually huge. But whatever you write about, you need to be able to do so with authority, providing useful, timely, accurate information.
