Finding your niche is a process that takes time. It can be hard to figure out what it is that you're good at and what you enjoy doing. But there are ways to speed up the process. Here are some tips for finding my niche:


Find your Niche

Finding your niche is finding the intersection of who you are and what you love. It’s finding a community of people who share your passion, and looking for commonalities between your passions. Then, it’s finding something that you can be the best at!

So let's get started on how to find your niche!


Find a Mentor

You should find a mentor who is in the same field as you. Find someone who is a good photographer, but also someone who is successful in business. Your mentor can help you with marketing, business and technique. A mentor might be able to get you started in your new business by providing leads or introducing you to more experienced photographers in your area that may be willing to work with you (or vice versa).


Find a Community

In the midst of your search, it's important to find a community. This can take many forms: you could be part of a Facebook group for people who are interested in what you're interested in; you could find other writers on Twitter and engage with them; or maybe there's a local meetup that focuses on something closely related to your niche.


To be successful, you want to find communities that are more specific than broad—the narrower the scope, the better. For example, if all your friends are into sports, joining an online community about sports won't help you narrow down what kind of content might resonate with readers beyond their friends' interests (and therefore their own).


Finding your niche takes time, but it is worth it.



Finding your niche is a process. It can take time, but with some research and patience, you will be able to find the perfect niche for your business.

Your niche is the specific area of expertise offered by your business. It's often related to what you do best or what you are most passionate about. The idea is that if you are able to narrow down this category and focus on it exclusively, then customers will be more likely to find you and want to buy from you since they know exactly what they are getting. For example, if I were starting a dog walking business (which I'm not), I might decide that my niche was "walking puppies." This would allow me focus on one thing: walking dogs who don't have owners yet so they can get used to being around people while still at home rather than in an unfamiliar environment like a kennel or pet store until someone adopts them out later on down the line once they grow up into adults who don't need as much attention anymore due either because there isn't anything wrong physically besides maybe needing baths every so often but nothing major going wrong medically either; again just saying hypothetically speaking here because this isn't real life advice nor should anyone ever start their own business unless they're financially ready first which means having enough saved up beforehand for all expenses including taxes etcetera which could take years depending on how much money needs accumulating before starting up again just so we're clear about what type of person needs these things before starting anything else besides maybe moving out first...



Finding a niche is a journey and it takes time. You need to be patient with yourself as you are figuring out who you are and what you stand for. It can take months or years depending on how long it takes for your mind to settle in on one idea. Once this happens though, it will feel like coming home because all of your energy will be focused on that particular area of interest and enthusiasm will follow naturally from there.
