Niche Marketing - What Is the Fuss?
Niche marketing is referred to quite a bit and is often suggested as the way to go for anybody who works online!
Here are 5 ways in which a niche marketer will stand to benefit by focusing their efforts on smaller and lesser 'known' niches found online!
Easier Customer Access
Being able to 'connect' with your target audience online is huge in terms with how it eventually effects your marketing success! This is conducive to relationship building which leads to developing trust and that has a positive impact on the effectiveness of your promotional efforts!
Being able to more easily connect with others allows you to quickly identify their needs. This type of 'feedback' is invaluable in the development of products to fill these needs! This allows the niche marketer to create unique products with little or no competition!
Facing less competition and combined with easier customer access you are now the 'big' fish in a small pond! It's infinitely easier to establish yourself as an authority! You do not have as much 'noise' to overcome just to be heard and recognized! This 'authority influence' increases your marketing success dramatically since you are considered the 'go to' figure within the niche!
Lower Marketing Costs
It only stands to reason that if you are facing less competition along with easier customer access that your promotional costs will be minimized! For anybody who works online finding ways to reduce costs are an ongoing priority and a great way to increase the profitability of your business!
Higher Profit Margins
And speaking of profitability, in smaller markets it is easier to establish the asking price for your products in smaller niches! The niche marker does NOT have to contend with a larger market which tends to 'dictate' pricing in terms of the products offered! Besides most products will be more unique therefore it will be difficult 'fit' them into a price level slot!
Essentially speaking niche marketing focuses on much smaller and easier to overlook business opportunities. The advantages a niche marketer has as compared to someone who works online in much larger markets are reviewed above. It is for these reasons that by focusing on these much smaller niches one can expect to experience greater marketing success and without as much effort! Therein lies the fuss!
