There are a few pitfalls to avoid when making a choice of web design niche, some of which we’ve already addressed informally. Firstly, while you do need to pick a niche that can hold your interest long-term, doing so might not be practical if your desired specialty is really obscure.
Remember that at the end of the day, you’re building a business. Your choice of web design niche should strike a balance between what you find interesting and what pays well enough to cover your bills.
On the flip side, you don’t want to work on projects you’ll grow bored with, or with groups whose values do not align with yours. This is a fast track to burnout, which will quickly undo all the benefits of niching down in the first place.
Additionally, you’ll want to ensure you’ve done enough research on your potential clients before you begin marketing your services to them. This includes everything from their culture and audience to their businesses’ pain points.
For example, some design elements may be culturally inappropriate for certain regions. Even though your clients might not tell you all the features you’ll need to avoid or use sparingly in their projects, extensive research on your part should make you aware of them.
We previously noted that choosing a niche may increase your client referrals and networking opportunities. However, this doesn’t mean you don’t need to engage in both short and long-term marketing strategies to promote your business.
You’ll want to be intentional about establishing yourself as an expert. This should be reflected in every channel you use for marketing your services, whether it’s your website, authority content pieces, or social media ads.
