Define Your Marketing Niche
Define Your Marketing Niche – 1 Minute Marketing Tips #17. Should you try to market to as many people as possible? So what is a ‘Marketing Niche’ and why do you need one? But how do you define your ideal customer?
First, all too often business owners, marketers, and entrepreneurs make the big mistake of trying to be everything to everyone. And they don’t make any progress that way. Because marketing to as many people as possible is a common misconception you should avoid at all costs.
Don’t be vanilla!
Since your competition is probably making the same big mistake, you need to get smart about your marketing. Like right now, today. Because if you don’t, you’ll keep on getting the same results your competition is getting.
So let’s be abundantly clear, being a “Jack-of-all-trades” doesn’t work. Since a lot of similar businesses are marketing and advertising to as many people as possible, it’s up to you to get really focused. However, you can do this by defining who it is that you want to do business with.
This is what is called a niche market.
For example, saying that you want home buyers, is a failure waiting to happen. However, if you say you want African American men in their 30s that make $50,000 or more a year that want to buy a home; you have a fairly specific niche to work with.
