There’s never been a better time for women to start a business. In fact, women have now become the driving force behind startups of all kinds. From tech to handmade jewellery, there’s a niche for just about everyone. The best part is that there’s always room for talented entrepreneurs who want to start their own businesses. You just need to know how to get started. If you’ve been thinking about starting your own business but aren’t sure which niche is right for you, you’ve to the right place. Below are four of the top niches you should consider starting a business in.
Even if you’re passionate about becoming your own boss, you still need the right skills to make your dreams come true. While some people are self-taught, others choose to earn a degree prior to getting started. Say you want to become a marketing consultant. You may have a fundamental knowledge of how marketing works, however, don’t really understand the inner workings of digital campaigns. That’s where going back to school comes in. You can apply for a student loan to cover the costs of tuition and other associated costs to avoid the financial pressures while in school, where repayments can begin after graduation.
As a web designer, you can create your own business and make a living working on the internet by servicing the clients in your desired niche. You can choose to work with name-brand businesses, or you can opt to service local businesses that need to create an online presence.
If you choose to work as a creative director, you can help brands defend their vision. You can create photo shoots, marketing campaigns, and even help create influencer campaigns. As your own boss, you can also choose to work in the B2C or B2B sector. In addition, you can work as a freelance agent at a corporation while still setting your own hours and pay scale.
Jewellery is a hot commodity, especially when it’s handmade. If you have a flair for jewellery design, you can create pieces that showcase your skills. You can choose to create small batches of limited-edition pieces, or you can choose to work with a manufacturer and produce larger quantities.
Photography is a broad niche that any creative should explore. If you have a knack for shooting photos, you can set up your own photography studio. You can specialize in one niche, such as wedding shoots, or you can work with a wide array of clients with different needs. Keep in mind that travel and maternity shoots are always in demand, so even if you don’t specialize in them. It’s still a good opportunity to investigate further.
If you have a talent for writing, you may want to open your own copywriting agency. You can work with a variety of clients, in addition to various types of content. Most businesses can benefit from having a blog, so reach out to local businesses and ask if they’d like to sample your services.
Also, you could offer to write reviews of their products, and that way you can earn money, and the local business will gain the trust of the local population and beyond. Over time, you may be able to build a roster of returning clients who refer to their business partners. You can also pitch to magazine editors and websites and hopefully have your own bylines.
