You’ll win so hard that everyone will feel it.
Solving your industry struggles is how you become the top of your niche.
How do you find Industry Struggles for your Niche?
You’ll have to sit down and do your research.
I will not tell you that this will be an easy task. It’s a struggle for a reason.
The first thing you need to do is find your audience. Go where they are at. Specifically, go where they are socializing at. That’s where you’ll find discussions, questions, and angst about industry struggles in your niche.
Start recording those problems so that you can get a start on how you need to start researching more to solve them.
Your audience might be on social media. Maybe there is a Facebook group or Twitter community they’re socializing in. They could be congregating on a blog focusing on the industry. Perhaps they’re on a message forum or Reddit. They could be anywhere. Your job is to find them and start listening.
How are you going to Solve the Biggest Problems?
How will you solve industry struggles when no one else is solving them in the first place?
I get why you’d ask that question. It’s a good point. My follow-up would be, is anyone in the industry actively trying to solve those problems? If yes, how are they trying to solve them? Are they putting in the hard work needed to solve problems?
That’s usually the underlying issue of why the struggle exists in the first place. No one is putting in the right amount of effort to solve the problem.
What if you can’t solve the problem? But what if you can? You’ll only find out when you try to solve the problem. If you never try, you’ll never know.
And during those moments when you don’t think you can solve industry struggles, consider this: You are a part of a specifies that went from discovering fire to creating the internet. Something tells me that you can solve problems if you put your mind to it.
