Does Narrowing your Niche Really Work?

by Filoiann Wiedenhoff

I have been doing much research on marketing and finding your niche market and in fact wrote an article on “Finding Your Niche Market”.

I wrote it because in doing the research I found that it makes a lot of sense. Our first initial desire to starting a home business is to make money, pay off bills or just to be able to work at home.

Most of the time we don’t really know what we want to do as a home business but as we start to look into home businesses there are such a plethora of choices and decisions to make that it can be so confusing and somewhat scary. Especially with all the miss-leading ads and scams that are out there.

So in doing my research I learned that narrowing my niche market would be more successful because in the general market the competition is plentiful. By having a more narrow field and focus we narrow the competition we have and it also gives us more of a focus.

So I followed my own advice and the advice of the experts and began to really look into narrowing my niche by focusing on what my niche market was according to my particular needs, abilities, passions and skills. (you can view my article “Finding Your Niche Market” on my website that explains this.)

As I made the decision between two niches, which one was writing inspirational literature I began to focus all my energies and attention on that particular niche and guess what? It made all the difference in the world.

I can’t tell you how everything changed for me. I not only was doing something I loved and have a passion for but the response I am receiving is great! The doors seem to be flying open to me and I’m just enjoying the ride.

Don’t get me wrong I have a long way to go but I have to tell you that following that advice really has changed my business from a generic “everybody is doing” business to a more focused and successful business that I see more blessings coming ahead.

Read my “Finding Your Niche Market” article on my website and other home business articles and try it for yourself. I think you will see the difference as I have!

Helpful Tips to Get Started Working From Home

by Filoiann Wiedenhoff

It has been my experience that looking for a good home business online can be frustrating, challenging and down right discouraging. We hope that these companies will do what they say and say what they do, but time after time and scam after scam we are sorely disappointed.

Legitimate companies do exist but how do we find them and what do we look for? Here are some tips to get you started on the right path.

1. Estimate: How much time, money and effort are you willing to invest into starting an online home business.

2. Evaluate: Find the “niche” business that’s right for you. Write down favorite past times, hobbies, and personal interests and evaluate which niche would you enjoy doing as a home business and which one is most profitable and marketable. We all want to make money online but statistics show that more people with an online business succeed doing a business they love, enjoy or have a passion for.

3. Educate: Like any business starting out, education is the key. Familiarize yourself with your particular “niche” online business, and invest in “how-to products, software and learn as much as you can by taking advantage of the many FREE advice columns, online classes, forums, articles and blogs that can help educate you in starting your home business and marketing your business online.

4. Embark: This is just the beginning; as you take the steps and follow the advice given from various resources and put them into practice, you will be well on your way to having a legitimate and profitable home business. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day!

Best Wishes!
