Why is niching important? Does everyone have to have a super defined niche?
I resisted niching for YEARS. I thought, “I’m different. That works for everyone else, but it doesn’t work for me.” And time after time I was burned by it. And it was only relatively recently when I focused in on my Zone of Genius – Visual Models – that my business finally exploded.
In this episode, I’m chatting with the wonderful, the effervescent Samantha Riley all about our experiences with niching. We discuss:
- If you say you help everyone, you help no one.
- How to tell if you’ve nailed your niche
- Horizontal vs Vertical niches
- How niching correlates to positive business growth
- Why looking at your “competition” can be unhelpful
- Why your niche should be in your Zone of Genius
- Common mistakes Sam and I have both made
