What’s a niche?
A niche is a specialized segment of the market for a particular kind of product or service. In business, your niche is what sets you apart from your competitors. What makes you different from other product/service offerings on the market?
Remember, when finding your particular niche, make sure you do the research and know what you’re offering and figure out how it’s different. And everyone has a niche!
Your most important aspect is your WHY. Think of your answer to these questions:
What is your purpose?

Think emotional attributes - like your brand persona in terms of emotional characteristics, and your brand perception in terms of what your consumers will feel when experiencing your product or service.
