It’s hard to be a big success in your already-saturated niche. No subject is new, so you have to work hard to stand apart from the crowd.
Here’s the secret formula to being an instant success in your niche: provide what isn’t there.
1. Do Something Different
The first way you can provide what isn’t there in your niche is by examining all of the sites and designers you share it with. Look at their websites, online stores, blogs, and Etsy shops. Take it all in, take notes if you must: then do something completely different. Use a completely different color palate, write in a different style, do exactly what they’re not. It’s an instant way to stand out.
2. Use Your Unique Talents
There has to be something you can do that others in your niche simply can’t. Harness your unique talents to help you stand out. Is there a distinct lack of poetry in your blogging niche? Why not start writing haiku based on your art? Be creative. Use your talents to create something irresistible.
3. Give The People What They Want
Pay close attention to questions you and others in your niche receive. Sometimes, common questions keep reappearing. Another way to spot common questions is to take a look at your Google analytics, look at the search terms people are using to find your websites. Now write plenty of content that answers the frequently occurring questions for your niche. Give the people what they want, and you’ll stand out as an authority.
4. Keep Being Yourself
Just being you helps you stand out. Being you is an asset no one else can aspire to, so take advantage of it! Harness your uniqueness. If you have a blog, add a photo of yourself to the site, write up a detailed about page, and schedule personal posts from time to time. If you’re an artist, make sure there’s a piece of yourself in everything you make.
Standing out in your niche and being successful is easy when you don’t follow the crowd, use your unique talents, and provide value for your readers. Don’t make it difficult, just keep being yourself and listening to your audience.
