Where is Your NIche Market Hiding?

Are you looking for work? Are you wanting to bring in an extra income? Many of us have some need to fill by bringing in an extra income or a main income.  So, we either start a business selling our handmade products, or we start a business in direct sales selling someone else's products.
Is that you?  I know I fit the bill on both counts.  But, you need to ask yourself a few questions.

Are you a business woman, or a woman in business?  If you are a woman in business, you don't really care how much time you put in your business or what results you'll get back.  You just want to have something fun to do to occupy your time. 

There is nothing wrong with that, but after a while you will find that you just decide to close your shop and go get a "real job" whatever that is.  

Oh, I know the "real jobs" are the ones where you go and clock in and out everyday and they tell you when to come to work and what they want you to do when you are at work.  They also give you the money they want to pay you every hour for the work that you do for their company.

But, if you are a business woman, you set your own hours, you decide how much you are going to make an hour, and you decide what you are going to sell for "your" company.

If you are a business woman, you are very serious about growing your business and you care deeply about the results you get from all the time, money and energy you put into making it a success.
But, do you feel like your turning your wheels and you are not seeing the results you would like from all your hard work?   I'll help you turn your hobby or direct sales business into an income producing business.  How?  By finding your niche market, that's how.

What is a niche market? Do you know? What about a micro niche market and a sub micro niche market? I have been doing tons of research since I started my website back in 2010 to help a group called "farmgirls" grow their business and have since opened it up to all women who work from home to join us.

A niche market is the persons who you are looking for to buy your product that you make or sell. It takes years and hundreds of hours, I know, to find and target your niche market. It takes even more time to get them to buy from you.

My website takes all that time and work out of you finding your niche market. How? Come on over to my website and join. It's free! And, I'll show you how you can find your niche market and grow your business.

The competition on the web for handmade products has really grown in the last 5 years.  No matter where you sell from, Etsy, Artfire, Ebay, Shabby Lane Shops they all charge you a fee of some sort.  The source you use for payment is usually going to be paypal and they charge a fee also.  So, the actual profit that you make when selling from these sites is very low if you take the time to sit down and count the cost of the time you spend promoting, listing, shipping and making your handmade products.

This got me thinking.  How could I help other women like myself keep the majority of their profits and not give it to sites likes these that keep charging high fees when you are the one doing all the hard work?  Here is a little eye opener I just discovered about how to find out how many customers it takes for you to get one sale.  You better be sitting down when you crunch your own numbers.

Wherever, you sell from take the number of views each month and divide the number of sales you got for that month.  Now you know how many people you need to come to your shop just to make one sale.  For, my shop on Etsy, I need over 232 people to visit my shop every day just to get one sale.  But, there is no guarantee that when I do get 232 people come visit my shop that I will get a sale.  You see the problem?

So, I keep listing new products and relisting expired products and renewing products and Etsy keeps getting richer and richer.  But, I do not see the profit from all the money I keep putting into Etsy.  Are you doing the same thing on the site you sell from?   If you said Yes, then you need to come to my website and let us help you turn the tables around on these giants and start making an income for yourself and not making someone else rich.

With the help of a wonderful friend, we have been able to join forces and put all of great experience in one pot to help other women be a success.  You can't be afraid of hard work, because that is what it really takes to become a success.  But, we will show you how to work smarter and not harder.  

We will show you how to simplify your life and simplify your business by doing some really easy fun and basic steps each day that will turn your business into a money making profitable business in a matter of 90 days.  If you follow these simple and easy to replicate steps that we will show you then you will be on your way to writing your own paycheck each week.  And, you will be on your way to living a happier and simplified life.  Now doesn't that sound good!

Come let me show you how to take charge of your life and your business.  Drop on by Markets of Sunshine today and find your niche market.  Your micro niche market.  And, your sub-micro niche market today!!!
