Finding Your Market in Any Industry

Mastering a craft takes dedication, but it's just as important to know how to find your market.

We can all take inspiration from craftsmen and their dedication to their craft. Recently, I had the chance to attend the low rider convention in Long Beach, and it was clear that if you’re truly skilled at something, there’s a market waiting for you. You just need to know how to find it.

At the convention, I saw people who had spent countless hours perfecting their low rider cars, bikes, and trucks. It was inspiring to see the passion and dedication that went into every detail. These craftsmen are true experts in their field, and they know exactly how to create something that will captivate their audience.

One of the key takeaways from my experience at the convention is the importance of finding your market. As Seth Godin, a renowned marketer and author, said, “The secret of being the best in the world is to pick a very specific target audience.” In other words, you need to know exactly who your product or service is for and tailor your offerings to meet their needs.

For low riders, their market is clear: people who love the culture and aesthetic of low riders. By focusing on this specific target audience, they’re able to create products that truly resonate with their customers. This is true for any business, no matter what industry you’re in. You need to know who your target audience is, what they want, and how you can meet their needs better than anyone else.
