How to find a profitable business niche

Entrepreneurs and small business owners, if you’re looking to build a profitable business, then you’ve likely been advised to “find your niche”.

While this may sound like a daunting task and perhaps you are struggling to figure it out. This blog post will help make it easy (and maybe even fun).

In this article, I’ll lay out the exact steps I’ve used to help 100s of business owners get clarity on their business niche and build a profitable business in that niche. 

So, what exactly constitutes a good niche?

First and foremost, it should align with your passions and expertise. This will allow you to position yourself as an industry expert, which will build trust and credibility with your customers.

Additionally, your niche should offer a unique selling proposition that sets you apart from competitors. This can be anything from a specific price point or level of quality, to exceptional customer service.

Why you need to figure out a niche to build a profitable business

One common mistake I see entrepreneurs make is to try and be all things to all people. The belief behind this is that if they help everyone, they will get more clients. 

This is a huge mistake and I want to help you avoid it. 

When you are a generalist, you actually hurt your ability to charge higher prices. dilute your marketing impact, confuse your customers, and make your marketing spend less effective.

In contrast, when you determine your niche, you can then define your ideal client. This makes all of your marketing and sales easier.

Having a niche and ideal client, allows you to attract a specific group of people who are interested in your services because they are so specific to THEIR needs.

When you have your niche you can tailor solutions and become an expert in your customers’ eyes. 

What is a profitable business niche, anyway?

Since I know some of you reading this, are new to becoming an entrepreneur, let’s make sure we are all on the same page when it comes to the word “niche.”

In simple terms, a business niche refers to a specific segment of the market that your business focuses on serving.

You can carve out your niche in many different ways including your target audience, offer structure, location, pricing, personal brand, and more. Essentially, it’s what sets your business apart from the rest and makes it unique.

Why is having a business niche important?

For starters, it allows you to position yourself as an expert in a particular area, which can build trust and credibility with your customers. Additionally, it helps you to stand out from the competition and attract a specific type of customer that is more likely to be interested in your offerings.

By honing in on your niche, you can better tailor your marketing efforts and differentiate your business in a crowded marketplace.

It’s worth noting that finding your niche is an ongoing process that requires continuous refinement and adjustment. As the market evolves and customer needs change, it’s important to stay attuned to these shifts and adjust your approach accordingly.

However, with a clear understanding of your niche and a willingness to adapt, you can build a successful and thriving business that meets the needs of your target audience.

To find your profitable business niche, identify your passions and expertise

One of the first steps in finding your niche is to identify your passions and expertise. This is important because your niche should align with what you’re passionate about and what you’re good at.

This will allow you to build a business that you truly enjoy and that you’re uniquely qualified to run.

To start identify your passions and expertise, ask yourself the following questions:

  • – What topics or industries do I find myself constantly reading or learning about?
  • – What skills or knowledge do I have that could be applied to a business?
  • – What problems or challenges have I faced that I could help others solve?

You may also want to consider taking a personality or strengths assessment, such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or CliftonStrengths. These assessments can help you gain insights into your natural abilities and tendencies, which can inform your business niche.

Define 2 crucial things to find your profitable business niche

When it comes to finding your niche, it’s easy to get caught up in your own interests and expertise. However, it’s important to remember that your niche should ultimately be about the people you serve and what they want from you.

Here are 2 things you must determine to find your niche:

Finding Your Profitable Niche Component #1:

The first thing is defining your “WHO”:

You MUST get specific on the type of person you can help.

– Who is your ideal customer and what are their specific needs and desires?

– What stage are they in their business or life?

– Who are you passionate about working with?

– Who do you have the skills and background to best help?

– Who is profitable and has the money to pay you what you want to make?

– What are their demographics, interests, and pain points?

By answering these questions and identifying the people you want to serve, you can better tailor your niche to meet their unique needs, and you can create offers that are specifically designed to tailor their unique problems.

Finding Your Profitable Niche Component #2:

The second niche-finding component is the “WHAT”.

You have to get specific on WHAT you will help your WHO with, how you will help them, and what results they will have realized at the end of working with you.

– What problem does your WHO need solved that you have the skills to help them with?

– What is the specific transformation that you bring to your WHO?

– At the end of working with you, WHAT is that outcome or result?

– What set your business apart from competitors in the way you help your WHO?

Once you have defined these two things, it’s time to put them together and start refining your niche.

By combining your personal passions and expertise with the needs and desires of your ideal customers, you can create a unique and profitable niche that sets your business apart from the competition. 

And – as I mentioned above – you can craft offers that are perfect to transform the businesses or lives of your WHO.

Get specific in your niche messaging and positioning

Once you’ve determined the WHO and the WHAT, you can begin crafting the positioning and messaging for your niche.

Getting specific in your niche is essential for finding and attracting clients who are a good fit for your business. When you hone in on a specific audience and problem, you can position yourself as an expert in your field and create targeted messaging that resonates with your ideal customers.

For example, if you are a offer health coaching services, instead of targeting everyone who wants to improve their health, you could narrow your WHO and WHAT to women in their 40s who are experiencing hormonal imbalances. 

By doing so, you can create messaging that speaks directly to their pain points, such as hot flashes, weight gain, and mood swings, and position yourself as an expert in helping them find relief.

This level of specificity not only helps you stand out from the competition but also makes it easier for potential clients to find you. When someone is searching for a solution to their specific problem, they are more likely to resonate with messaging that speaks directly to them and more likely to engage with a business that specializes in their needs.

To create business profit, create a targeted offer for your niche

Having a niche also allows you to develop a deep understanding of your target audience’s pain points, desires, and behavior, which can inform your offerings and marketing strategies.

By understanding the challenges and goals of your ideal clients, you can create offers that address their specific needs and speak directly to their desires.

Remember, people want specific solutions to their unique problems. So show the detailed way you can solve their issue.

For instance, the health coach we mentioned above might create an offer that includes personalized meal plans, supplement recommendations, and stress management strategies tailored specifically to this demographic. By doing so, they are offering a solution that addresses the unique challenges of this niche and positions themselves as an expert in the field.

So an offer for this health coach with that specific WHO and WHAT might look like this:

Hormone Harmony Program
Introducing the Hormone Harmony Program – a 12-week health coaching program designed specifically for women in their 40s who are struggling with hormonal imbalances. In this program, you’ll receive personalized guidance and support to help you manage symptoms such as hot flashes, weight gain, and mood swings, and restore balance to your body.

Through a combination of one-on-one coaching sessions, group workshops, and educational resources, you’ll learn how to nourish your body with the right foods, supplements, and lifestyle practices to support optimal hormone function. You’ll also receive expert guidance on stress management techniques and gentle exercise routines to help you manage symptoms and feel your best.

Throughout the program, you’ll have access to a supportive community of women going through similar experiences, as well as direct support from your health coach. With a focus on holistic wellness and personalized support, the Hormone Harmony Program is the perfect solution for women in their 40s looking to find relief from hormonal imbalances and live their best life.

Can you see how enticing this would be to your WHO compared to the health coach who simply states “I help you lose weight”? 

Next steps: landing a client in your profitable business niche

Those are the steps to nailing your profitable business niche.

By identifying your passions and expertise, determining WHO you help and WHAT you help them with, , and getting specific on an offer to help your business niche, you can position yourself as an expert and build a thriving business.

At this point, you should have enough clarity to go out there and get your first paying client.

While you may not have complete clarity yet, that’s okay because total clarity comes only after you’ve actually worked with a client. You’ll be able to refine further from the question they ask you.

With the right approach to carving out your business niche, you can land your first client and start building your profitable business today.
