The most important component of any business owners, entrepreneur and freelancer, self-employee in the service industry will need a new pair of eyes to keep in track of your research trends, problems, target market, demographics such as ages, locations, and knowing the culture.
All these details you will be able to come up with a form of marketing campaign and strategy that will shift what you have been doing in the past.
I want to clarify that people sometimes think that niche is a thumb rule, and please let’s make this unruled it. There isn’t a problem of being generalist on your market. Notice that if the skills you provide to your clients can be very beneficial to them. You can wear many hats in many jobs and show some impressive work. Don’t get yourself overwhelmed. Make the efforts count!
