the top 40 clearest niches out of 119 – as voted by you!

On January 8th, in the lead up to my six week ‘Niching for Hippies‘ coaching program, I invited my email list to participate in a challenge called – ‘So You Think You Can Niche‘.

As of this moment there were 119 submissions and 1587 comments on the blog thread.

I have spent the last 12 hours going through it and tabulating the results from it. And what you see below are the Top 40 niche submissions as chosen by you. I will be sharing more learnings that came from this contest in the coming weeks, but for now, I invite you to enjoy reading forty niches that the majority of people found extremely clear. They’re all excellent examples of a niche that most people would ‘get’ right away.

On the left hand side you’ll see their average score that people gave them from 1-10.
