What is a niche?

In the realm of TpT, a niche relates to products that appeal to a small, specialised section of the population.

Why is a niche important?

The bottom line - it is more PROFITABLE!

WHY?

1. It builds trust. By becoming an authority in your niche, educators view you as a reliable source for their needs. 

2. It allows for premium pricing. Specialists always charge more for their knowledge, time and expertise - you can do the same!

3. It reduces competition. Focusing on a specific area means facing fewer competitors, giving you more room to shine. 

4. It's more sustainable. You can't be everything to everyone. Having a sustainable business that you can work on year after year is much more profitable than one where the owner burns out.

How do you find your niche?

Your niche is that sweet spot where your interests, expertise, and the needs of your audience intersect.

In the workbook I've linked above, you'll have space to brainstorm answers to the following!

To find your niche, take around 20-30 minutes to answer the following questions:

01 - Interests

• What topics or subjects genuinely excite and inspire me as an educator?

• What aspects of teaching do I find most engaging and enjoyable?

• Are there specific teaching methods or styles that I'm particularly passionate about?

02 - Expertise

• What subjects or topics have I studied or taught extensively?

• Do I have specialised knowledge or training in any particular area?

• Are there areas where colleagues and peers often seek my advice or guidance?

03 - Audience Need

• What are the most common challenges faced by teachers in my subject or grade level?

• What types of teaching resources are frequently requested or lacking on TpT?

• What do teachers in my niche look for when searching for classroom materials?

What now?

Use these questions as a starting point for identifying your niche on TpT. 

Also ask your colleagues and friends what they think!
