Why is it some freelancers struggle to make money, while others make six-figure incomes — or more?
I believe the answer lies in finding and serving a profitable freelancing niche.
I don’t know about you, but I’m out to find such a niche: where clients appreciate the value of my services and are willing to pay top-dollar for them. I like to say, whether you charge high or low, you’re bound to find clients. Some clients want to pay peanuts; others are willing to pay diamonds.
But how can freelancers find these high-profit niches?
To get the answer, I’m going to be interviewing Steve Slaunwhite in our next Savvy Freelancing webinar on
Wednesday, February 23, 2011, 11 am Eastern done, but you can get access to the recording by signing up below. If you haven’t signed up for our webinars yet, now’s the perfect time to do so. Steve is one of those six-figure freelancers, the author of several books on copywriting, marketing and freelancing — including one I always recommend: The Wealthy Freelancer. Steve has been a successful freelance copywriter for over 15 years. He’s definitely someone I’d like to learn from.
I’ll be asking Steve:
- What’s a niche? How is it different from a specialization and target market? Or are they all the same?
- What’s the best way to find a profitable niche?
- What are the signs that a particular niche will not pay off and we should abandon it?
- Should we go into a niche where there’s plenty of competition?
- Do you market differently to more affluent prospects than you do to bottom feeders? If so, how?
