Well the Thanksgiving holiday took away most of my momentum unfortunately. But prior to my little break I was getting a lot of great feedback about the niche service. Many people thought it was a great idea. I started letting people know in various Facebook groups and I got my first sale within the first day or two of having my website up. It was a calendar job and the client was very happy with the end result. She let others know about it and she sent another client my way. Woohoo!
I also offered to do some free work so I could get more practice and more testimonials. I am still working on that. The most important thing I need to do right now is put up before and after pictures. I have to make sure people can see the difference in the after pic. That’s the best way I know how to demonstrate that I can do the job.
So from this point on it’s all about marketing. It’s easy to set up a service and get it going. The hard part is continuing to promote it and get the word out.
This is what I’ll be focusing on through networking and getting referrals.
I’d love to know how your niche service is coming along! Let me know in the comments below!
