Niche Marketing and Choosing a Niche

nicheNiche marketing is a type of marketing that falls out of the normal realm of mainstream business, or that involves focusing on one specific product or one specific type of need that allows niche marketing businesses to boom. Niche marketing is capable of meaning different things to different people because the idea of mainstream is something that can have a wide variety of different definitions. If most of the people do not belong to a certain niche, then you can consider it a niche market, and while this is not the general definition among everyone, it gets the job done. So when you are marketing within a niche, you are generally aiming to target a very limited selection of all of the people out there – So why should you do it anyway?

Here are five reasons for why you should choose a specific niche and stick to it!

1 – When you dive into a brand new niche market, you generally will not have a whole lot of competition to contend with. This is one of the biggest reasons for why people choose niche marketing in the first place, because it makes your SEO much more effective and will allow customers to find you much more easily.

2 – Niche markets can really appeal to target customers, and target customers are generally much more willing to drop money when it comes to having their specific needs met, meaning that by catering specifically to a niche market you can generally earn more income through your business.

3 – Some niche markets, despite being small, are actually quite highly sought after which means that identifying a need that no one else has met yet can help you find a literal gold mine. People who have that need will flock to your product if it really does provide a solution for them.

4 – Niche marketing will make it possible for you to really focus your efforts and endeavors as you will become a true expert within your own personal niche, and you will be able to build a name for yourself this way. You can produce a lot better when serving only a single niche rather than spreading yourself too thin.

5 – Most niche markets do eventually become mainstream types of markets, so if you are willing to work at it hard enough you may actually be able to take your niche market to the mainstream, which will allow your business to grow and expand exponentially. You will skyrocket your profits much better this way than if you were to simply jump into a mainstream market from the beginning. Rather than attempt to cover a serious mainstream market where the competition may simply drown you, put your money into a small niche market that you can grow with, and you will be tromping the big guns in the business in no time at all.

I find niche specific marketing boring and I don’t think it looks natural. You are essentially looking tooth and nail for content is my opinion.

Why buy 100 domains when you can create 100 categories.

Now I am not saying to be unrelated, but why can’t I build a perfume store that caters to men, women and teens?
