Money Digest: Niche Marketing Overview

SignalisierungsmodellImage via Wikipedia
No matter how big a company was and no matter how focused it was towards their desired market, there will still be segments of the population with unmet needs. These small portions of the population have unique needs but because of their size, main stream providers don’t bother to serve them. As a result, members of these groups usually become desperate buyers. They have the capability to buy but there’s no available product for them.

It is understandable why large providers do not enter their market. It is because it’s not practical for big companies to do so. However, for those desiring to earn cash from home, these small markets can be the opportunity. Marketing on the unique needs of a small group of hungry buyers is what is commonly referred to as niche marketing.

The Advantages

One of the advantages of niche marketing over mass or mainstream marketing is that because of its size, there are usually no or just small competition. Also since it was small, you don’t need a big capital in starting. Management of niche marketing business is just simple compared to mass marketing.

Examples

One good example of a niche marketing business is the business of selling stylized cell phone housing. The major cell phone makers cannot go down
to the customized level of producing stylized cell phone housings. But there are small numbers of people for one reason or another wants to have a different look for his/her phone. This s
mall group or niche is not profitable for mass marketers, but for small time entrepreneurs, it was.

Another good example is cellular phone repair. Because the usual warranty for cellular phones are usually one year, phones that does not work after one year end up on the trash can. In developing countries there’s an increasing need for repairing cell phones. This market is small enough for cell phone manufacturers but is large enough for small time entrepreneurs. The niche market of cell phone repair became a successful niche market opportunity for many.

What’s next?

After introducing niche marketing, what’s next? Let’s now discuss how to find the best niche market or sometimes referred to as hot niches.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1.

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes.

I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu
