Hey Luv,

So you want to launch a business, but the market niche you know you need to choose is what’s stopping you.

Also, this can be challenging: even after listing all of your loves and interests, you can still feel as though you haven’t found the one thing you were destined to do.
However, putting too much pressure on oneself to select the ideal niche could lead to paralysis.

It’s important to complete your research while choosing a profitable niche business, but starting sooner rather than later is preferable. You’ll be able to test ideas, get to market faster, and learn from your triumphs and mistakes in this manner. This way, too, you can always use the lessons you’ve gained from past failures and go forward with fresh ideas if your initial business doesn’t succeed.

Here are some helpful tips:

* Identify your interests and passions
This may be something you’ve already done. But, if you haven’t, make a list of topical interests and passion areas, immediately.

* Identify problems you can solve
With your list of topics in hand, you’re ready to start narrowing down your options. To create a profitable business, you first need to find problems your target customers are experiencing, then determine whether you can actually solve them.

* Research your competition
The presence of competition isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It may actually be showing you that you’ve found a profitable niche. But you do need to do a thorough analysis of competing sites. Create a new spreadsheet and start logging all of the sites you can find.

* Determine the profitability of your niche
You should now have a pretty good idea of what niche you’re going to get into. Maybe you haven’t narrowed your list down to a single topic area, but you’ve likely found a few ideas you feel pretty good about. At this point, it’s important to get an idea of how much money you have the potential to make in your niche.

Start building a whole website once the viability of a niche has been established. To increase your revenue and expand, you’ll want to understand how to start a blog and drive more visitors to your website.

However, keep in mind that there isn’t always a precise method for identifying a niche. While doing your homework is something you’ll want to accomplish, if you spend too much time planning, you’ll never actually start.

Yours in business,
