Identifying your niche is where it all starts and often the most overlooked opportunity for growth in our industry. You are a visual story teller...but what story are you telling?
When we try to design for everyone, we are designing for no one! Having a market focus helps you to zero in on one group of buyers and turn them into repeat clients!
Understanding how to tailor your designs to a target audience is key in getting repeat clients...and it is repeat clients that gives you the consistent income you desire!
