When building a business, it's important to know that sometimes success is much easier to come by when you niche down and target a smaller audience.

      Great video Pat! My niche is reducing our exposure to the toxic chemicals and pollution that is EVERYWHERE in our lives right now. And this leads to living a more healthy, natural and sustainable lifestyle. I am just 25 videos in on my YouTube channel. I am not sure exactly how I want to niche down more just yet so any thoughts by you or people in this community are greatly appreciated. I could do an age group like people over 30 or 40 or moms & families? Or I could focus on an area like in the kitchen? Or diet and lifestyle? I could also do clean beauty but that space is pretty saturated. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you!

        I can refer you to a mom that makes her own laundry detergent. DM me if you want the information.

      This is timely advice for me as I get back into filming videos and launching a podcast next year. Thank you!

      Thank you so much for sharing this Pat. It is a definite help for me to get on track to exactly how to set up my site. I’ve been stuck for a bit on narrowing down my niche but this did help me to focus on what I currently have without wasting a year of learning to build a website with the content. Maybe now I can focus on starting an email list. As soon as I figure out the lead magnet to start with. Oh so much work to do while life gets in the way. Today was a perfect topic for sure. Thanks again and have a great day. 🙂 #TeamFlynn

      Hello , Pat, Now, I started my podcast in May this year, 2020, after going through gynaecological surgery, and my target audience is primarily to help people who have gynaecological issues, or people who have went through a similar type of surgery to myself, or are planning on having the type of surgery that I underwent. Moreover, I am unsure if I need to niche down however, since starting my podcast, I have also talked about people who have ongoing mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Next, I am quite passionate about health in generally, and I understand mental health can go hand in hand with physical health especially when one has gone through quite an extensive surgery, it can effect ones mental health too, which is the reason I wanted to address both issues in my podcast. Now, I thank you once again for your valuable information ℹ️ ℹ️, and if you have any ideas for me, this would be thoroughly appreciated….

      I appreciate your content. As someone starting to make content, niching down is something I’m continually working on. Right now I’m in the gaming/streaming/editing/maker/DIY space. That’s a lotta space 🙂

      Thanks Pat. This is timely information and I appreciate your passion for sharing your knowledge. I hope this is niched enough…I’m trying to target my podcast to divorcees over 50 who are rebuilding their finances and/or need to understand personal finance. I’m about to start my podcast at the end of October.

      My YouTube is niched to personal finance for women. Not as niched down as the podcast as yet.

      Thanks, Pat. I’m having trouble niching down. Thinking older women starting over/ personal transformation at any age kind of stuff, but it feels so broad still. Working on it.
