Finding your niche is important as it can supply you with the revenue you need. More and more business owners are realising the importance of finding a narrow set of clients and targeting both their products/services and marketing to them. In doing this, you can focus all your efforts on being great at a few set things, instead of being average at many. But how do you find this ideal demographic? The following will tell you how to get started in finding a good niche.
This stage is one of the most overlooked yet important parts of finding your niche. Many owners try to skip or take a shortcut in this stage by either spending very little time in this process or not doing any research at all. Don’t make this same mistake and instead take advantage of these amazing (and free) tools available to conduct market research. For example, Google’s Keyword Planner, which allows you to enter specific keywords and see the search volume for them. By analysing the traffic and the searching for competitors, you can see if the keyword is worth pursuing. Save yourself countless hours of being in the dark, by conducting the research upfront.
Once you have found a niche and have created both a website and brand for your product/service, your business will hopefully get customers. It is important to be prepared for this and install tracking software on your website. For this, Google has a free service known as Google Analytics. It allows you to see where visitors are from, the time spent on your site and at what point they left. With this information, you are able to tweak your product or service to better match the behaviour of your visitors. Doing this allows you to develop sub-niches that may prove to be more profitable than your original idea.
Evolve Your Idea
Now that you have completed research, constructed a site and analysed customer/visitor behaviour you are ready for the next step. You can now evolve your niche based on what your clients buy, read and click on. Utilising the above mentioned tools, your provided experience can be customised to be even more specific to your client base.Improving on your initial idea allows you to use the strengths it provided without any of the weaknesses found.
By focusing on these principles and taking action, you can find your ideal niche and create all the income necessary to be successful.
