Questions Business Owner Are Asking
NICHE DOWN FOR A PRODUCT LAUNCH OR CAST A WIDER NET?
This is a question that was asked by a business owner who has CRM solution. He wants to roll it out with a product launch but he’s not clear on his target audience.
The feedback that he was being given was more of a teardown than a build-up. Here’s what you do next is helpful. Here’s where you’ve gone wrong without a helpful solution is just a time suck and disingenuous.
My question is, right now I am stuck between going niche and marketing the software towards one industry (for example personal trainers) or offering it to all small business owners as I know it can benefit them all?
My question is, do you think it is always more beneficial to niche down or to cast a wider net. It’s something I have been indecisive about for a while. Thanks!
