Would you mind linking to your site? I would be interested to see the diversity of niche' that each is serving.
From a manufacturing standpoint, once you came up with your topic and your thesis, did you write the e-book, did you outsource the writing or both?

I'm afraid I for one would rather keep my niches to myself. To me it's bad business to advertise a specific niche to other people looking to capitalise on that specific area, sorry :(
As for manufacturing, I'm lucky in that I'm a bit of a geek and I'm also gifted with a high level of literacy. I create all my own products "in-house" (on my PC at home! hehe) - I don't see the point in outsourcing to someone and not knowing the level of the product I've asked them to create... I do hower know my own. :D

Hrm.. I guess I don't really think there is a scarcity of niche's. Also, you may have potential customers here.

I'll jump on this one.
I'm actually in the process of writing a few ebooks and have one small one out for sale already called "7 Steps to Finding Your Muse Business Idea (http://www.seattle-small-business-website-design.com/empowerment-articles.html)"
To write that one, I took some of my own posts from this forum, added more detail, examples and action questions and PDF'd it.
While so far, I'm planning on doing all of the writing for my ebooks, I'm looking for a VA right now to do the proofing, submitting of articles, some research and formatting/compiling the ebooks. (I do the writing because I actually enjoy it, and am pretty fast/good at it too)
Since you asked, my first big niche market are small indie business owners who want to create a web presence that markets their services for them. There is a fairly big market of these folks here in Seattle and not too many people create preselling websites (my unique product category).
For this niche I provide website creation services (about 60% of which are automated now) and will soon have a personalized writing course, since that's a very important part of a website that presells.
My second big niche that I'm focusing on is indie business owners who want to grow their business and eventually take themselves out of it (basically take their current business that they work in and turn it into a muse). The website for this is: http://www.seattle-small-business-website-design.com/index.html
I coach them on how to do all that. I will have an ebook and 5 week e-coaching course on that soon, but also take a small number of regular coaching clients. I don't have a separate website for this yet, but am setting up a mailing list (http://www.seattle-small-business-website-design.com/newsletter-signup.html)
I have a few other niches on hold, but this post is getting long enough as it is.
PS - If anyone wants to compete with me, bring it on! ;)
