- You are always selling to a market.
- A market is a group of people with a specific need. You are addressing that need.
- Your success depends on how well you address this need.
- One of the best ways to do this is to focus on just one market in a blog /site.
But imagine if you sidetracked a bit and decided to do something on a whim: For instance you are maintaining a personal development blog and have promoted it as such. One day you find something funny (a picture or an article idea) and you like it so much that you decide to post it.
The visitor will be confused when he sees this post on your blog, as he was expecting personal development tips. He is not likely to return.
Thus focusing on your selected niche in a particular site/blog is important for drawing in targeted traffic and for maintaining it.
