Starting an one stop shop for people who want to move abroad/migrate and helping them with visa options. Our focus would be investment/startup/skilled/ancestry visas with relocation services + help with taxes. Also how would I monetize this aside from the referral commission cut?
I am a bit confused why you are starting a business, but asking how to best monetize it. That is a red flag, at the start.
In my experience, when you are starting (or looking to gain more clients), defining a niche is a far better strategy than being a generalist. That said, once you are established, you can expand your service offerings. But at the start, you must be known for something (a niche), otherwise, you’ll be known for nothing.
By choosing a niche, you can position yourself as a true expert and give your clients the assurance that you understand their needs, speak their language, and know how to solve their problems.
As a generalist, you are likely to be seen as a “Me too!” A widget who can be replaced at any time. Further, a widget often relies on competing on price, as there is no differentiator between you and the next widget. You are interchangeable. Therefore, you must be cheaper than the next widget and a race to the bottom ensues.
And be careful, because a race to the bottom is not one you want to win.
