Navigating the Shift: Austin’s Transformation into a Niche-Based Agency
Austin’s journey began with a simple book on webpage construction, sparking his curiosity in website building. Along the way, about two years ago, he stumbled upon Josh Nelson’s “7 Figure Agency Roadmap” book, which profoundly resonated with him. This discovery marked a pivotal moment in his path.
Austin found Josh Nelson’s book to be abundant with strategies that he believed could work and really resonated with him. He took the conception, put it to the test for 30 days, and waited for it to reap results.
Early in his journey, Austin grasped a vital concept: to expand his business, he couldn’t depend solely on paid ads. As a result, he allocated the majority of his time and effort to developing an effective content strategy.
“I could not rely just on paid ads, so I decided to focus on just creating high-quality content through SEO.”
The Power of Specialization: Why Niching Down Matters
When Austin Houser decided to niche down, he knew he could scale better as he focused on the one niche he could be really good at.

Here’s how Austin refined his approach when he chose to specialize:
- Client Focus: Austin strategically narrowed his client base, optimizing his agency’s services to deliver exceptional results.
- Continuous Learning: He invested in coaching groups to stay at the forefront of industry trends, gaining insights from experienced professionals who’ve blazed the trail.
