10 Key Questions to Help You Choose Your Health & Wellness Business Niche.png

What does it mean to have a niche? The word “niche” as it pertains to business marketing, is when you channel all your advertising efforts towards a well-defined targeted segment of a unique market.


However, a niche market is not necessarily a small market but rather a specific target audience with a specialized offering. When you focus on a niche, you become the market leader.


The Advantages of Niche Marketing


  • Very little competition. There’s a higher potential to become the market leader. 


  • Defining exactly WHO you serve will make it easier to speak out about your business also encouraging stronger relationships and improving customer loyalty. 


  • Clients won’t mind paying a little more to get your services because you ‘get them’.


  • Focusing on a specific area in your field of health and wellness will make you stand out. For example, if someone needs the specific products or services that you offer, they are more inclined to go to you instead of someone else who focuses on offering a variety of things. You’re more likely to specialize in whatever it is the client is looking for. This is something about you that makes you uniquely YOU.
