The animal niche is one I have chosen myself. I have an arachnid page and find the audience very close knit, a community in fact. This is ideal as when you begin to gain or buy Instagram followers you become noticed a lot quicker. The other benefit to an animal niche is the shear electiveness of the broad topic. I do spiders because I have a vested interest in them but you will never find yourself at a loss when trying to think of an animal, there’s so many.

Travel is a widely used niche but again – one that has great diversity in terms of choice.
