I help men improve their self-esteem, gain greater emotional freedom, & rediscover their sexuality with self love, confidence & joy.
Niching Contest Participant Comments:
6/10: I’m on the same page as Tad about the language clarifying how the men see their journey and what brings them to you. Working with men, as well, I find your work intriguing and intrinsically valuable. Would like it if the words reflected more specific wording of men themselves.
8/10: The piece that’s missing for me here is what has led to poor self-esteem, emotional imprisonment, and lost sexuality. It sounds like a divorced or heartbroken man, though it could be someone who has never had successful sexual relationships. I think this could be narrower — though you certainly describe outcomes I think men would be thrilled with.
9/10: Wow…powerful work. I love the message and it is loud and clear to me. The font is a little difficult for me to read though.
7/10: I read this as “Oh doing the same thing for men as women go get coached for” I don’t know a lot of men who express a desire to gain emotional freedom – they may need to, but don’t express it or think in those terms. would the men who really need this recognize themselves in those words or would those that actually need it say something else to see themselves there?
7/10: I think it’s great what you are doing . For centuries the patriachal systen we have lived in has conditioned men to identify with positions of power and domination in all areas of their lives and shamed them when they show gentle heart feelings. This is equally abusive to men and as you say robs them of the right to feel their feelings at an early age and what does that do ? Stuffs up their sexual and emotional happiness throughout their lives .I know that sounds extreme and there are more and more men who no longer buy into that lie but there are also so many men who can relate to you (maybe after an unhappy marriage or relationship)and are looking for the sort of support that you offer . I would say it is still a work in progress but that’s the beauty of this challenge we can feel safe to enter it even if our niche is still a bit perfectly imperfect . I have benefited a lot from all the things people have pointed out about my niche and I have had more insights from this than what i could get from working on it for 6 months on my own.
10/10: I think this photo works well to attract the client base you are looking to help. Then your choice of words, which are very clear and concise, focuses their attention on the objective to transform men who are feeling suppressed, unexpressed and frustrated to live their lives full of expression creating meaning and unbridled joy!
10/10: I love this. I know who it is for. I know what outcome your clients welcome. Those are amazing benefits. I know where I can go to learn more. And your photo speaks volumes. It looks like you walk your own talk just by the expression on your face.
6/10: OK, I know this is original and has since been modified but just going on this, it lacks of inspirational juice, but it’s functional, it works. You so need a different photo, for me the male model pose doesn’t work.
10/10: Good topic very clear and easy to understand.
10/10: Excellent !!
8/10: I like what you’re doing. I had a young (late 20’s) gay client whose goal was to “be more ballsy”. Another said he wanted to be “More out there” I instantly knew what they meant. Maybe those words aren’t right for you but was wondering what your clients say they want? Love how you’re looking directly at the camera, great shot.
Michael Guzman’s Reflections:
I hear, understand and appreciate all your comments. I did use words used specifically by clients I have had. Would I be better off creating a more pain pleasure centered statement then possibly? I am recreating a different version. Should I post for feedback from you here? What if the market is further defined as gay and bisexual men? these issues are very common within this community of men. Many of which were or still may be married, but not fully expressed and closeted sexually. I welcome your thoughts.
Thank you for helping me get clear on my Niche statement! I post my new and entirely reworked version on here in gratitude for you to view. Completely Revised. You might recognize my web address.. I took every advice, removed my pic, which got mixed reviews, and changed all the words. I’m hoping it will meet with approval from you? Thank you for your honest and empathic feedback. Thanks also to all who provided feedback as I did take all of it into account and it brought me here to this totally revised edition.
The Revised Niche:
I help gay and bisexual men transform from frustrated and suppressed to feeling whole, excited and confident.
