Successful business owners online and off agree that “When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” What is the most crucial element of preparing a business plan? You must first identify the niche or market you are going to enter.
Do this correctly and your business will not only match your passions, but it will also go a long way towards meeting all your financial needs. Unfortunately, some entrepreneurs rush headlong into starting a business before they have narrowed their niche market. That can be fatal to the success of your business in the long term.
Narrowing Down Your Niche
If you don’t narrow down your market significantly, you try to please too many people. This mass-market approach leaves you battling larger businesses that are already known as leaders in that particular field.
When choosing a niche for your business, you can also go too narrow. This can produce a very small client or prospect pool. So, even if you become a leader in your micro-niche, you may not earn enough to meet your financial needs.
