Avocet,

How did the Localization Niche come on, I would be very interested to know if there is a need for that service, as I was looking to have my niche market internationally based

Actually I want to narrow my niche to help people market their products or services to Asia or the other way around through internet marketing and social media marketing. Is this too narrow?

Interesting....my focus is on successful entrepreneurs, consultants and speakers earing at least 6 figures. I offer my services as an overall package focused on being more of a business manager or chief operating officer capacity.

Wow! Almost two years this thread has been going strong! With all the help from reading threads like this, I am starting to see the light. It's still a little overwhelming, but I like how some broke down their services into subgroups. That really helps in trying to sort out all the stuff swimming in my head, I can think and focus on one subgroup at a time. Thank you all.

I find my biggest problem is narrowing services down. I'm worried that I am going to end up offering too many different services that I won't be able to handle it. Reading this thread has helped me make some decisions on how I should narrow them down. I will post as soon as I'm finished with the list.

I can't remember who posted this, but I think it's a great idea to target WAHM's. I was initially going to target small businesses and start-ups, but I'm liking the idea of supporting one of our own as well!

What's a WAHM? Just never seen that term.

Speaking of niches, I was going to post this question and I guess I can ask it here.

Two of my niches were construction and German language related admin work, aside from translations of documents, which I was not going to charge by the hour.

But yesterday I HAD MY FIRST CLIENT MEETING!!!!! Who happens to be an American Construction Firm, building projects for German Companies here in the States. He was really excited that I found him and sent him one of my introduction emails in the fall last year, offering my services because now he feels like he has a more personal liason between his company and his German client, with me being able to communicate with them in their language more.
But that made me think. If I list my per hour fee for construction related work at one price and my German language related work at $10/hour more but then I have a client that requires both niches, do I charge all my work with the higher fee, or can/should I combine both somewhat and charge maybe 50% more of the higher fee, to cover both niches?

I hope this is not too confusing. I appreciate your feedback.
Thanks
