The Sextech & Sexual Wellness Niche: Success is About Who You Know...

It's who you know that matters, even more so in the Sextech & Sexual Wellness industry


Niche Businesses & Networking

In today's digital age, networking has become an invaluable tool for businesses across all industries.


However, niche businesses such as sexpreneurs, femtech, sextech and sexual wellness professionals, networking takes on even greater significance. These professionals often face unique challenges when it comes to promotion and advertising due to societal taboos, censorship, and stigmatization. In such an environment, strategic networking becomes a crucial lifeline for these individuals and their ventures.


One of the primary benefits of networking in niche industries is the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals who understand the intricacies and challenges of the field. Sexpreneurs and those working in sextech can often feel isolated or misunderstood due to the sensitive nature of their work. Networking provides a safe and supportive space where individuals can come together to exchange ideas, experiences, and resources.


Networking also enables sexpreneurs to expand their reach and access new opportunities. Through building relationships with fellow professionals, they gain access to a broader network of potential clients, collaborators, and mentors. These connections can open doors to partnerships, joint ventures, and referrals, ultimately boosting business growth.


A recent conversation


A recent conversation with a fellow business friend highlighted the true power of networking. Despite our different industries, we maintain regular communication, sharing updates and supporting each other. This friend always looks out for me, making introductions, sending me relevant information, articles, podcasts to all my projects and work. And I do the same for him too.


During our conversation, he shared about his advances in franchising his business and also accepting a position on the board of directors for a national company with a substantial turnover - £80m for the curious. I was surprised he was even getting involved in this, as his business is so successful already. But he reminded me he's doing it ''for the fun and brain tickle'' of it all. Then I asked how these opportunities came about, wondering if he sought them out in the first place. He reminded me that tons of people know him and explained that his vast network of business connections led to this new opportunity. Put simply people who knew him and recognize his skills recommended him to others who were voicing their need for a suitable fit for this major company. So, through these connections, he found himself being discussed in relevant circles, ultimately resulting in invitations to participate in this exciting project.


This story exemplifies the age-old saying, "Your network is your net worth."


Minutes later this same friend was asking me if I know anyone suitable for his podcast as he's looking to interview folks and it just so happens I know a very successful business guy who fits the niche my friend is in and I asked my friend if he'd fancy an introduction with this millionaire. Needless to say, my friend was curious and open to it and by the time of writing this, I've connected them and they've made plans.



Building a Supportive Network


Networking not only opens doors to new opportunities but also provides emotional support and inspiration. Cultivating relationships with industry peers who understand the intricacies of the sex industry can alleviate feelings of isolation and foster a sense of belonging. Engaging with fellow professionals through industry events, meetings, and online communities allows sexpreneurs to share experiences, exchange ideas, and offer support.


The Value of Reciprocity


The essence of networking lies in mutual support and collaboration. As sexpreneurs, it is essential to embrace the spirit of sharing and caring for others' success. By actively recommending connections, projects, and prospects, sexpreneurs create a ripple effect of positive influence within their network. The more they contribute to others' growth, the more they attract opportunities for themselves. Remember, networking is a two-way street that thrives on reciprocity.
