      I couldn’t agree more. As a business coach, this is something I have encouraged my clients to do. That recommendation lead three of my partners to start VirtualEStaff — A US based company located in Wilmington, NC with offshore operations in the Philippines. VirtualEStaff provides virtual assistants / virtual employees @ $5.50/hour.

    Your Small Business Needs A Niche 

    Your small business needs a niche. Have you ever thought of that? Are you just a generalist or a specialist? Having a niche means that you specialize in a specific area of business. Your business or product has a focused, target-able portion of a market.  What market or areas of business do you serve? Who is your target client? You can’t be all things to everybody. So pick a niche & stick with it. When you’re first starting out it’s good to have a niche then you can evolve & change over time.

    Having a strong passion for your niche is what makes having a niche business great. Many times other small businesses may not be aware of your particular niche market, and some large businesses don’t want to bother with smaller or specific niche markets. For many small businesses, focusing on a niche market is their key to success & longevity, as long as an entrepreneur has it well planned out.

    When you have your niche well defined with strategic planning, business planning and the right support behind you, a business can go far. There’s no set formula for success but the most successful businesses are those that are able to spot opportunities for success & invest in a niche.

    Your small business needs a vision with … 

    Your small business needs a vision with strategic plans. Most companies and organizations need a vision and strategic plan, but few have it. Many business owners, ceo or management operate a business or project without any type of written plan. You need to ensure that your business has a written business plan and strategic plan. These two types of plans are completely different.

    Your company / organizational vision provides purpose, strategic direction, motivation, inspiration and alignment. Your vision is a short and inspiring statement of what your company intends to become and what to achieve at some point in the future. As long as your plans have been written, then that gives you a road map to follow and a reference guide to look back on. Following a strategic plan can put you on the road to success.

    Most companies and organizations need a vision and strategic plan, but few have one. If you don’t have one get started today!

    When pitching your business to potential… 

    No matter the size of your business, at some point in time you may need a sales pitch. When pitching your business to potential investors you need to know you audience. Does your company have service products or provide B2B products that require a sales pitch to prospective customers? Customize your speech for your audience. Who is your audience? Dig deep, who are you really talking to? What are their needs?

    Find the needs of your audience, speak to that need. Take time out to do your homework, research. Find out what your potential business investors or clients’ goals are. What do they want to achieve? You must find that need, make it the problem, and solve it. With the research info that you get, use that to fine tune your pitch. Your main focus in a sales pitch is to make a sale. A potential client will only become your actual client when your product or service fits a particular business need in a particular industry.
