Top 10 Niche Video Websites

These top ten niche video sharing sites represent a strong surge steering the future of video over the Internet. Niche video, more than anything else, will expand the use and viability of the Internet. The future of web streaming on the Internet is dependent on the uptake of consumers into the new video medium. Without these new niche video websites to host and provide a guide to the consumer there will remain the hodge-podge of majordomo video site/searches offering 9 billion videos sorted by abused user defined tags.

These sites represent unique and specific niches. The sites are well positioned, designed, and have suitable content that is relative to their niche. The content is unique on the net. They all offer some user community around the topic and most host user uploaded video with the ability to share and embed. Their communities are started and they are top sites for niche video.

The numerous ways to market product and ideas through the medium are countless. My articles are provided to help with ideas and direction where you can grow with video in your favorite field. I hope to encourage more people to develop their niche sites with video and trust you enjoy these fine examples as much as I did.
