You have probably heard of the term “niche marketing”, but you may or may not fully understand how it can affect you as an internet business owner. Wikipedia defines niche marketing as the “subset of the market on which a specific product is focusing. The market niche defines the product features aimed at satisfying specific market needs, as well as the price range, production quality and the demographics that is intended to impact.

You feel like this is a great industry for you so you now need to decide will you open a one-stop-shop pet internet business or do you want to focus on dogs, cats, pet clothing, pet organics products, etc. The choice is ultimately yours, but as the definition of niche marketing states you will want to have specialized products that are hot sellers in the online marketplace.
Another reason to select a target market in which you are passionate is your will be more knowledgeable about the industry, the products and your customers. You will need to be able to speak the “language” of your customer. This will enable you to better market your products, as well as, serve your customers.
