When choosing a niche for your community, try to choose one that has a built in community. This will give you an idea of what content people will like to see and how you can start building your first audience. I like to first go to Twitter and look at various hashtags in the niches I like. If it’s Marvel, I’ll look at the Marvel hashtag. For fan works, I like to look at Commaful fanfiction. I’ll go to a specific fan tag, for example, the Marvel one to see what type of fan works people are making.
