Niche Thinking

Bryan ·
When I think about the infinite amount of of topics available across the wide variety of forums ( Reddit, G+, et al... ), I wonder what will the topics be that attract the first wave of content providers to Narrative? What Niches will dominate early? Will those attract/repel other niche topic participation? And my wondering continues on from there... What categories will be most likely to attract content providers? What are the demographic characteristics that will respond favorably to...

Interesting questions Bryan also it would be good to know the cost of buying a niche as im very limited in funds to 3k NRVE so have to step carefully with Whales around. but yes its a big guess which will do well and by when... lots to think about.

Niches will be $75, or higher if there’s multiple interested parties. There is great potential for SO many Niches (similar to Subreddits) that I just can’t imagine not being able to “find your niche”. The challenge for Narrative will be managing the Niche approval process. I can see a great backlog of Niche ideas bottlenecking that process.

Just to clarify one thing... Narrative's network rewards are not about paying people to like/upvote content. That sounds like Steemit. Narrative's reward system is much broader and designed to reflect all types of contributions, but reputation as well. The allocation of Network Rewards is detailed in the white paper on page 17: https://assets.narrative.netwo...arrative-network.pdf The breakdown is like so: Content Creators: 60% Narrative Organization: 15% Niche Owners: 10% Activity Rewards:...

A important part of your experience on Narrative is your Reputation.

Ok - here's my first batch of thoughts, straight from the oven. Perhaps a mixture of low and high brow is the best combination of initial niches? And an axis that may loosely correlate to the low/high brow axis, is popular vs niche (in the original sense of the word). Our numbers will be limited at the outset, and we can only create so many niches with those numbers. If most of the niches are high brow, alongside the name 'Narrative', there is a real chance the community may start down a...

Bryan, I'm really digging the strategic thinking here. Like you said: what niches might drive growth for the community at the outset, and could some niches deter others... We'd do well to put our thinking caps on and really pursue this line of thought: doesn't guarantee success, but its better than flying into it blindly! Let me think a bit on this and come back.

Second batch of thoughts - just one thought in this one. Gender. Looking at the current list of founders, an alarming but entirely predictable observation awaits to smack us in the face. Where are all the women-folk? Considering the obstacles that lie between the lay person and early on-boarding with Narrative, there should be no surprise here. Interests in investing, tech, and cryptocurrency tend to yield strong over-representation of men. What will this do to our initial niches? After all,...

That's a huge problem in crypto in general - women are way under represented (it could be around 2%-5% if the viewership metrics on YouTube channels are any indication). Luckily, content creation is something that the ladies do enjoy doing (see instagram and snap and you'll find lots of women entrepreneurs). Hopefully, Narrative can bridge the gap between crypto and the social economy for O+.

I have every faith the actual Narrative platform will have a natural demographic spread! It sounds like the team has deliberately designed things so users won’t need any knowledge of crypto, and can receive rewards in fiat. Just hoping that the niches we early adopters choose won’t be too alienating for women. Lets all get our significant others or any other women we have in our lives to weigh in when choosing niches!

I posted this elsewhere but probably bears briefly repeating here since it is so relevant to the thread topic: I hope we find a way of not rewarding upvoting/liking, so as to avoid useless cheerleading for profit. By associating a small cost in NRVE to each upvote, we can remove any incentive to spam the platform with 'likes', whilst simultaneously including an kind of micro-tipping to the act of upvoting other content. After all, saying I like something another user has worked to provide to...

The whole goal of Narrative is to not have a backroom group mysteriously banning or deleting with no explanation. That's the system in place now, on most social networks. What we want is free expression, with some mechanism to denote content that may be NSFW, so that those who are easily offended can choose not to see that content. The Tribunal will ultimately be made up of community members who are elected (and who can be removed) by the will of the community. Hopefully they will reflect...

Thanks for clarifying this, @Rosemary . I am an advocate for freedom of speech, specially as an existential erotica writer. I do, on the other hand, condemn hate speech, and all types of violence towards an specific group of people. So, if I understand Narrative's position, you won't censure anything that doesn't crosses these kind of lines, right?

For comparison of the 20% niche network tax - consider Uber. Uber also charged 20% (I believe it might now be 25%). But Uber drivers don't have to bid against each other to lease a license to drive for Uber. And that tax/fee is substracted from each fare, so the driver will never reach the end of the year facing a big bill to the company that could end his activity if he comes up short. I think a good test of fairness here is for someone, anyone, whether team member or Founder or general...

Its for more complex than that Harj! Nobody knows what can potentially be made. Nobody. There are several interconnected problems here, and your comment only addresses the shot in the dark that is the initial punt, by urging conservatism. What about niche leasees who rock their niches, but one year come up against financial hardship, and can't pay the fee in time to keep the niche?

You are right - it IS the cost of doing business. But that can be said of legitimate costs, and excessive costs, and of good business propositions, and very bad ones. The hot dog stands give you a ready made clientele. Uber gives you a ready made clientele. Narrative, for us pioneers, does not. We're supposed to go out and build our clientele ourselves, and Narrative will benefit from it. I think the least we can ask in return is more reasonable renewal fees than a full 20% of earnings.

Hey @Malkazoid I appreciate your thinking on this. It definitely feels a little cart-before-the-horse to be discussing Niche management/ownership with no place (yet) to manage it. It's also a little eerie to be getting glimpses of a project at such an early, might we say pre-natal, stage. There's still a lot of formation that still needs to happen. And, this thing will evolve over time. Regarding the 20% fees, I look at that as the cost of doing business. If you make $1000, you pay $200 for...

One more thought: I agree on the nomenclature. "Ownership" is a tough pill to swallow if it has no properties/entitlements of ownership. I've always suggested "Manager". Also, we hire rain-makers on commission. They go out in the world, their own wits as their only resource. Everything is percentage-based. They make a sale, they get paid. Only, usually the values are reversed. We take 80% and they keep 20%, with bonuses for incentives, etc. The rain-makers don't go out under the guise that...

If one is paying $20,000 USD in NRVE for their Niche, that means they made $100,000. So, they keep $80,000. My efforts will be to minimize how much of that goes to taxes. I don't...

I want to be excited, I really do. But the Terms of Use before accessing Chaucer were a bucket of cold water. 20% niche renewal fee That means if your niche makes more than 375 USD in the year, your fee will become 20% of your yearly income for the niche. Lets call this something more descriptive than a "renewal fee". It is a tax, and a very significant one at that. Remember we'll have to pay taxes to our governments on our income for our niches too, AFTER the Narrative has taxed us 20%.

I'm glad you're here too Bryan. There are levels of deception - not everything is an outright lie - right? The term 'niche owner' has continuously sent the wrong signals to my brain, and I think it has fuelled what is probably a deluded sense in me that at some point, the project would align with the words it chose. I think the level of comfort others might have with this comes from a sad acceptance that real ownership is perhaps becoming a privilege of a shrinking class of people in our day...
