Getting a good start as a startup business is important if you must succeed, and one way to do so is by selecting, from the lot, the right niche industries. Attempting to create a new niche market is possible, but you’ll be taking a gamble instead of a well-researched business decision.

A better strategic niche is to simply enter an established market and sell what consumers already buy. This approach is not only easier, it is also much more profitable.
