7 reasons to own a niche

1. Expertise

When you own a niche you are perceived as an expert in that niche. (And you will become an expert in that niche over time, if you aren’t already.) Customers feel more confident when they perceive you as an expert, and it’s easier to stand out in one area.

2. Clear elevator pitch

We’ve all met individuals at networking functions who stammer, “I’m a creative writer, but also do social media. And I love helping businesses with their financial books. And I sell audio files on the internet.” When we hear someone with such a diverse range of interests and skills, it can be difficult to know what type of work to hire this consultant for, so we don’t end up hiring them at all.
