Great Niche Selection

Last Update: June 14, 2018

I was out jogging this morning and saw this pick up truck with a nicely done ad on it's tailgate. It really caught my eye because it was the perfect example of a niche. It's obviously an offline business, but the principal is the same - find an audience/need, provide a product/solution. The business is a pretty good idea actually.

Think about how many times you've had a small project you needed done. The installation of a ceiling fan, a small logo made, one flower bed redone and mulched. You feel silly calling a 'professional' in the field because it's not that big of a job, and to make it worth it for them, they're going to charge you quite a bit. Wouldn't it be great to find someone that does just that little task and charges a great price?

This company does that. They found a great niche. Just think about how many homeowners need just this done - http://postupinstall.com/

Dexter,

It is ironic that you mention this particular service since my fiance and I do this in our local area. We are Let Me Help Fix It: A Division of Nelson Contractors for those handyman jobs that seem too small for local contractors.

We get our exclusive leads from Networx and do repair & remodeling for customers who feel their job is too small for local contractors to bid on.

We just had a plumbing job yesterday that we completed in a 24 hour period where an elderly woman had her water turned off because she had a custom leak.

it was a very muddy job that most contractors wouldn't touch for less than $500. We were able to bid the job for less than $250. She was elated that we got her water turned back on and that she had money her bank account to get it fixed.

All the Best,

Louisa

You can find a great niche almost anywhere. The trick is to have a passion for it and the desire to make it happen.
