Mr. Bergsmas targeted international audience, can since many years find his small web Business at "Google Page 1". His family Business, ranks on one of the Worlds Most Famous Brand Names.
There are many examples of successful small businesses. I have chosen to talk about this small business because I tend to look at a lot of informative YouTube Videos when I have a problem, or need a good advice when it comes to my own car.
Mr. Bergsma found his niche in the mid 1990s, and started his successful web adventure at his transformed 40 acre dairy farm, for more than 15 years ago. It is based on his own big interest in cars, his mechanical skills and experience.. You can read his own words, at his website.
Where he talking about his stunning adventure that started in the early 1970s as a Flight Mechanic and Commercial Airplane Pilot, flying in the rugged eastern highlands of Irian Jaya, Indonesia..
But here today, we are taking a time jump to mid 1990s. When Mr. Kent Bergsma started to provide service, to maintain, to repair, and to refurbish various older Mercedes Benz cars.
But his small business "at his dairy farm" soon began to change direction when he first time "discovered" eBay in 1999... At this time about 17 years ago, the total number of Mercedes parts on eBay was around 100..
Today 2016, I see that there are more than 1,500,000 Mercedes parts at eBay's listings .. The operations on eBay grew very fast and Kent realize in 2003, that they needed their own website, so Mercedessource.com was Born.
From 2003 to 2005 grew his company so much and fast, thanks to the new website, that they decided to stop the repair facility, and instead to 100% become a pure Web based Business... In 2007, the business have grew further and the decision was made to relocate to larger premises.
There is no doubt that, Mr. Bergsma has really found his niche, which also have becamed his big passion. By acquiring detailed knowledge and experience of various Mercedes models, he now offering different products, advanced diagnostic guides, written manuals and repair instructions.
He also designing and manufacturing specialty kits and tools, and easy to understand information, for people to "doing-it-themselves" on their own Mercedes car.
This small family web business, continued to grow and now we come to 2010, which will be the next big breakthrough. Mr. Bergsma's son manages to convince his dad, that set up a YouTube channel has to be an excellent solution to show the target audience, valuable and relevant Videos for instructional purpose, give smart tips and good advice.
Over the past 6 years, the company has grown and the number of YouTube Videos have now surpassed 1000. As the number of Videos has become so large, and e Commerce constantly increases, were made in 2013 a restoration and updating of the website, Mercedessource.com Today the website is much more user and mobile friendly, in addition, Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS).
Mr. Kent Bergsma has with his small family business, build a rock solid authority, when it is about being able to really help his target audience, to solving problems, to give them what they are looking for. That Mr. Bergsma has devoted many hours to build up his small business, since its inception in the late 1990's, when he discovered his niche, there is no doubt.
But why spend so many hours? it's not because that we must. I Believe it's because we are really interested our small Businesses, to do what we are doing, we think its very fun, to helping our customers solving their search intent, wishes and needs, on the absolute best possible way. And as an Results out of all this, small Business owners are happens to make a decent income to support our families.
As i have said, I strongly Believe to find your niche, you have to begin to explore your interests, make a list, and sort out what interests you the most. To build up a small web business is not a question today about investing a lot of money, or first become a web programmer.
On the contrary, with the help of the enormous web-technical development in the last 5 years, and all new business tools, that make it absolutely possible even for the "newest newbie" to build up a small e Business.
Of course, we must remember that at the end of the 1990 's, the internet was newborn, there were no smartphones, it was ahead of both YouTube and Facebook and the rest of the "Social media Family". Would Mr. Bergsma's web Business, started today, of course it would go much faster.
Because all the above mentioned internet ingredients, that taken more than 10 years of development, now is in place.. But the most important of all is the users, in 2000 it was only 360 million people World wide who were Online. Today in 2016, is it 3.4 billions people "searchers and users" Online. Thanks to different types of smart mobile devices.
To be self-employed and find your niche that interests you very much, has today become an essential factor to be able to be heard and be seen in the loud digital noise. Mr. Bergsma is just one example of millions small business owners in different industries that make success because they see a need for something that also interests them very much.

As i have said, always start with asking your self, what is the purpose, why will you start your small business? And by Why i dont mean to making Money or profit, because that is a results and will Always be a Result..
