What is Niche Marketing?
Niche marketing is also known as micro-marketing and targets a small and well defined segment of population with specific needs which has not been focused by other existing players in the market. Niches are created through the identification of unsatisfied needs and wants or those which are currently being poorly addressed by other firms. The strategy is to become a big player in a small market.
Niche Marketing Strategies:

Test market the product before finalizing a marketing plan
Advantages of Niche Marketing:
