Niching Contest Participant Comments:
9/10: Brilliant I love this work. They say in the storytelling tradition, that when an elder dies it is like a library going up in flames.
9/10: I love this niche and have often thought of how valuable my older relatives perspective and wisdom really is. I would totally be your client and would be able to recommend lots of clients who are in the slow process of losing a grandparent or parent. Very interesting, and direct presentation.
You are very gifted and extremely special.
9/10: Though it gives no narrowing of niche market I find this a captivating statement and pic. It gets my interest and I don’t fit the niche so in this case it works anyway.
8/10: LOVE this venture. I read up there in the comments somewhere that this is directed at terminally ill people, but that is not clear from the niche statement. I think it should be.
8/10: I want to be sold on this.
9.5/10: This is amazing! I find it interesting that you mention value – it evokes a sense of what elders used to mean when these folks were young, and what they can still mean if we have their lives documented. I think to make it a 10 you could word it so that we know exactly who you are targeting – people in their final years?
Incredible! I’m so glad you are doing this! Where do you work from?
8/10: I give it an 8.
10/10: Absolutely stunning.
9/10: I love what you’re doing.
10/10: I love it!
