  1. Absolutely brilliant and true Ben, particularly in regards to finding our unique angle or a less crowded niche to be involved in. My big mistake a few years ago was in the travel niche..trying to target absolutely everyone and everywhere where I’d have been much better defining my audience and then working backwards from there.

    I really should have targeted a specific crowd, say backpackers and students instead of absolutely everyone that wanted to travel to Asia, – yes I ought to have been more specific in that too and targeted an exact country or region like South East Asia.
