A niche is a term used in biological science to state the organism’s role in an ecosystem. Every organism has a special role that makes them useful.
In an online business world, it’s the same. It’s as simple as what you are meant to do to get paid in the business.
It is your X-Factor.
It is important to find your niche because finding it means finding your fit in life, your purpose in the world that makes you most alive.
The easy way I have encountered to describing my niche is to have the following 3 things about me come together.
- Something I’m good at
- Something I like to do
- Something people are willing to pay me for
Getting to my X-Factor is an important first step to start your Easy Online Business.
You can answer the 3 questions yourself or you can write to 10 people who are closest to you the following note:
“Hi my friend, I’m doing a project to find out what I’m good at. If you can use 5 words to describe what I’m good at and 5 words to describe what is important to me, what would it be? So it’s 1) What I’m good at and 2) What do you think is important to me?
There’s no right or wrong answer. Just your honest opinion. This will help me know myself better and hopefully be a better friend to you. Thank you
Your friend “
When you have the responses, put the answers all together. Find repeats in each list and rate them according to how many times a particular term is repeated.
Look at the tops ones. Then ask yourself which ones are the things my friends think I’m good at and important to me that I REALLY LIKE TO DO.
Then for each of them, ask if it’s it’s possible that one day if I work hard and persists on it, that people pay me for that which I like to do.
That thing I end with is my potential niche.
But it may not be my only niche. It may take time to find out others but I will never know until I try
