  • Will this be recorded? I will only be able to listen live for 1-hr otherwise. Thanks in advance for the info!

  • Hi Pam,
    I absolutely understand that the pet industry could be a very satisfying niche. My two dogs agree…
    I’m a Christian writer and would like to write for the Christian market. My question: Is the Christian market too broad? If so, how does one make it more specialized?
    Thanks

    • Hi Retha,

      The Christian market is a big market, but there are many sub-niches you could consider. Christian publishers, christian charities, christian businesses, churches, and many others. I would recommend doing some research through various Christian business directories available online to get a feel for what’s out there and where you might want to put your main focus.

  • Hi, Pam

    I just listened to your Interview (sorry, I missed the name of your Interviewer), and it was interesting. I am really anxious to earn some money, quickly, so I am targeting November 30, 2014, as my ‘jump in’ date.

    I think my niche is the Health industry – specifically getting and staying healthy. And I like writing new, short articles. That’s why I’m interested in the E-Newsletters writing style. Can you give me the link to access the training program for E-Newsletters, so I can start immediately? I’d be very grateful. Thanks.

  • Sorry I’m late to the party! I found this recording to be very helpful . I am ready to create my website but I am having a problem narrowing my niche. I live in the heart of Marcellus territory surrounded by gas wells with driller traffic causing hotels to pop up in my community which is great economic news. I worked as a copywriter disguised as a communications specialist for a natural gas company for 10 years before my position was eliminated due to budget cuts. I was thinking of making my niche natural gas writing and taking advantage of this booming industry backed by my expertise with web and marketing writing for this niche and understanding of NGVs and CNG stations. But I had to pause when you said you jumped into financial writing only to be bored. I’m not convinced natural gas is my passion. In my former job I also worked with directors of non-profit organizations to secure sponsorships and promote volunteerism and fundraising to my employees through web posts, flyers and raffles. I think I might enjoy writing for non-profits better, but I only have 2 years experience doing that. Consequently, I have one natural gas company interested in doing business with me and one non-profit. Help! I just don’t know what to do…

    • Hi Valerie,

      First, congratulations on being on your way to landing your first clients. I’d go after them both. Get a feel for what freelancing in each area is like, what you enjoy more, and what pays better. Then use that experience to narrow your focus to what makes the most sense for you. Keep in mind, selecting a niche doesn’t have to be a forever choice. So, if you decide later on that you wish you’d gone in the other direction–or an entirely different direction altogether–you can start going in that other direction. Keep us posted on your progress!
