    Throughout my short time in the IM world I've come across many different vids and tutorials and always found it interesting how lots of people pronounced it differently.

    So how do YOU personally pronounce 'niche'? As for me, I pronounce it nee-sh (rhymes with leash)

    according to merriam-webster.com, you're both right! "nich" and "nish" are both correct pronounciations.

    Most Europeans pronounce it "neesh" and
    most Americans pronounce it "nitch".

    Ultimately, it doesn't matter. What matters
    is that you find a profitable one to promote. :)

    I am American and I say "neesh". It's really irritating when people say "nitch". Sounds about as stupid as pronouncing nuclear "nuke-yah-ler", IMO.

    I'm neither American nor European and I pronounce it "neesh". I pronounce it that way from the beginning, just looking at the word (without hearing it from someone else first).
