    Here's the deal. I have a few attractive model type women working with me. My plan is to launch a blog / website which will feature them. On this blog, we will have recorded youtube videos, blog posts and live webinars where fans can interact and chat with them.

    I will be generating traffic and promoting my blog on the known social channels such facebook, twitter, youtube, etc.

    My only problem and challenge is figuring out what the niche or topic should be for this website. Whatever niche I use the models will be providing the content in the form of the live webinars and recorded videos, so the theme must be a topic that any of the models can contribute to easily without requiring hours or months of experience or insight. Also, I want to try to work with a niche or topic that has a large enough audience.
    SEMrush
    I want to make it a theme / niche that any of the models can be comfortable with on the site, and also where alot of "niche" knowledge isn't required to contribute.

    For example, lets say my niche was "world of warcraft". This is a HUGE niche with plenty of dedicated fans, however my models don't know anything about this game because they don't play it, thus they wouldn't be able to contribute relevant content, and the viewers would catch on to this quickly.

    I thought about current events, and celebrity gossip, but not sure if that would be a good topic.

    Whatever niche / topic I decide to discuss in the blog, I plan on giving away prizes such as gift certificates, etc to some of the viewers. I was also thinking about making the topic some sort of interactive game viewers can play with the model.

    Any feedback is GREATLY appreciated.

    So again the million dollar question is:
    What niche or topic or theme can I use to represent my blog, but will also be flexible enough for my models to contribute and produce content without having to spend hours and months to be an expert at?

    You have models. You have an business idea model. Not sure what the niche is...

    Just let 'modeling' be your main topic. Then, you can talk about everything on your blog. You can talk about make up styles, how to put on make up, up to date dress styles, what takes to become a model, how to kat walk, throw in a little celeb stuff for branding by associates, fashion designing, and various types of topics. I'm pretty sure if you have that many models to add content to your blog, you guys can talk about everything and anything.

    I don't see you going into a small niche with this for example talking about how to pose as a model through out your blog.

    As far as games, do people in that niche play games (video games)? unless you mean like contest games then its a great idea.

    If you have enough traffic and subscribers to the blog, you might want to consider turning that blog into a membership site for exclusive information such as tips and tricks and especially for videos. Everyone can get free information as a regular blog, but if they want insider tips, they have to become an member.

    Maybe you can have each model specialize in something for instants, one will specialize in make up, and another will be in fashion design, and another will be for whatever. Just to characterize each of them instead of having all of them talking about all various types of modeling information. Then call your niche something that represents them. IDK maybe just to make it easier.

    Very interesting Yang, I never really thought of it in that light. I was more thinking along the lines of a subject that would focus more on the male audience, very good point!

    Does anyone else have a suggestion or idea?

    penis pills / male enhancement.

    Models should know enough about sex, and it's there's a huge market for it.

    The less clothing your girls wear, the less you should have to worry about a niche.

    Another topic that I have seen beautiful ladies cover that interest a male audience is sports. You've seen it before. . .women covering men's sports, not just women sports. Do this, and you will for sure have an audience of eager participants.

    All of you are great! I really appreciate the feedback. FYI, I really want to focus on the male audience first if possible. I want their pictures and videos on facebook to be the attention grabber first. If guys are attracted, they will come and see whats going on the live webcam, from here, I just need a "filler" something to keep them occupied and interested. The model just can't sit their or the audience will be bored, so I need to have the audience interacting or keeping engaged. If you guys have any more ideas, please share thanks again!!!!

    Male enhancement seems like a good idea for your situation, and that is a hot topic, with several hot products. You would be dealing with desperate buyers, and that always works best.

    With that current setup, I think dating site will also do.
    Beauty products or fashion are also good.
    They can be endorser of different designs and accessories.

    You can try and talk about how upcoming models can get into the industry.

    What are the pitfall?
    What do they need to be aware off?
    How can they get into the game?
    Give information about what the industry is looking for?
    List agencies looking for models?
