Narrowing your marketing focus to a single, highly-profitable niche is the most valuable improvement you can make to your software development business. Actually pulling this off is not easy. You will face strategy, research, and emotional challenges. The Positioning Manual will help you succeed.
Many lead generation techniques do nothing to build trust. Paid advertising is an example of this. My Trust Velocity research profiles 46 lead generation techniques by how much trust they build, how quickly, and how suitable they are for generating high quality leads rapidly.
Identifying and dominating a desirable market position is the cornerstone of a profitable, in-demand services business. This process is often a high-stakes, low-certainty exercise in fear and frustration. My free Positioning Crash Course helps you cut through these roadblocks.
Most web design patterns emphasize ease of scanning content or following hot trends (parallax, anyone?), but fail completely at generating leads.

Two months in, this is actually happening! By declaring a niche and expertise at least enough to get out there and start interviewing people and evaluating it, I became connected with people in the industry and was offered a recurring consultant job.

Philip’s pre-engagement questionnaire was gold! I learned a ton going through the process of filling it out. I would have paid for that alone. After our one hour strategy call with Philip, we decided to focus our agency on SEO work for mid-sized and start-up tech companies—and we’re excited about it! We are starting to get speaking engagements because of our new niche. We are big fans of yours Philip and received so much value from hiring you!
