Should you be a jack-of-all-trades (perhaps, a jane-of-all-trades!) or a specialist in one? I love crafting, and I’m sure that you do too, but as sellers we don’t need to sell every type of product we’ve ever created.

Read on for information on how to find your craft business product niche.

How to Find Your Craft Business Product Niche -

What is a Niche?

A niche is a product specialty that you develop over time, and many sellers become well known because of their niche.

For a real life example, I like to compare niches to doctors. If you are pregnant, you’ll likely see a professional who has obtained extra education in maternal health and deliveries, and does them often – an obstetrician. In contrast, you wouldn’t visit a foot doctor to care for you and your unborn child.

Following the same logic: If I am a customer looking for a high quality custom made wood sign, I will seek out a shop that specializes in making them, rather than someone who has all the tools but hasn’t done it before. Similarly, I wouldn’t order a wooden sign from a sticker maker.

How to Find Your Craft Business Product Niche

To help you define your product niche within your craft business, ask yourself these questions:

  • What do I enjoy making with my Silhouette, Cricut, or other craft machine?
  • What types of crafts am I most skilled at or experienced in?
  • What materials and resources are readily available to me?
  • What is profitable in both time and supplies to make and sell?
  • What can I create in the long run that I will not get bored with over time?
  • What product/technique do I want to learn the most about?
  • Can my craft products be scaled up for larger production if demand increases?
  • What are the current trends in the craft industry and how can I align with or leverage them?
  • How unique is my craft or product idea compared to what’s already available?
  • What gaps or unmet needs exist in the current market for crafts?

Can You Only Sell Products in Your Niche?

Am I saying you can only create one product and one product type only? No, but I do recommend you start selling one product type. Once you master that, slowly add more products.

The idea behind finding your niche is to find something that you not only enjoy making, but that is profitable for you to make. By repeatedly making similar items over time, you will become an “expert” – because practice makes perfect! By mastering your techniques, you are likely to branch into new ones or seek extra education to learn new techniques to use.
