Should Your Web Design Business Specialize in a Niche
- Short answer: Yes. 01:36
- David and Tim both agree that life could have been much easier if they had focused in an a specific niche when starting their companies.
- For example, if you make a few websites for dentists, you are now an expert in this niche and can pitch other dentists based on your portfolio.
- Being an expert in a niche leads to more projects 02:11
- If you are an expert in dentist websites, you’ll get more referrals from dentists. You know why? Because dentists hang out with other dentists!
- When you specialize in a niche, you learn the ins and outs of that type of website. A dentist website would be very different from a plumbing website or a landscaping website.
- However… you need to pay the bills. 03:04
- In the beginning of your web design business, you don’t want to turn down potential projects just because they don’t fit your niche. You do still have to pay the bills.
- One way to start building up your niche while taking on other clients would be to create a separate website for your niche. You can still feature all of your work on your portfolio, but this will start establishing you as an expert.
