    Hello,

    Ugh, I didn't think before I started my "authority blog" :p on a health topic. Just for the sake of this post, I will say its Lymes disease(although thats not the niche).

    Ok. well, I've been writing general articles, but haven't yet done any "buyer" articles. So, then I thought, oh hell, what do these people buy?

    Obviously, I know they buy books on the topic, but what else? I don't know!

    • Perhaps a heating pad for pain?
    • Maybe some supplements for pain and energy?
    • Magnetic bracelet for pain?
    I mean, I need like 100's of posts lol...

    Is there a way to find what people with a certain disease or whatever would want to buy, besides books and stuff?

    Another example, what would someone with chronic fatigue or something want to buy?

    This is a part of my research, I kinda overlooked and just assumed it would come easy, but now that i'm 100 pages into this site with general info, well...I'm kinda screwed.

    Thanks,
    ~Rob.

    Well, you'd google it. :)

    If you find something like that on WebMD, then it would say courses of treatment and what not. Shoot me a PM and I'll help you with it when I get off work in a bit. :)

    Thing is, for my niches there's no cures etc lol

    It's like, what products would someone with a broken leg want. There arent products specifically for them.

    Google it lol soo busted!

    Alright. I do know a lot about a lot of illnesses and what not. PM me the illness, and I'll help you out.

    (I'm guessing it's arthritis!) :p

    Well, depending on what it is...

    Natural / homeopathic remedies?
    Maybe an e-book on natural pain management techniques specific to whatever ailment it is?

    Beyond that, you have to look at what the treatments are to figure out what gear they might need. I mean, depending on what it is, perhaps you could write about the use of particular types of exercise equipment for physical therapy/rehab purposes, etc.

    Special types of teas, or common teas and their applicability for different remedies
    Cookbooks/recipes for special diets that limit the onset of symptoms (seriously...for certain back conditions I've found people on forums following low starch diets, etc. that help prevent the flare ups from occuring as much). Collate info and produce one yourself!

    What about offering a series of e-books/special reports. An e-book about the special diet you've formulated. An e-book cookbook with recipes for the special diet. An e-report with a list of all of the specialists/doctors in the field and their contact info in one place. If its a degenerative disease, and people are on forums posting about their experiences fighting with pain management people, if there's enough data available you could put together a report of the "good list" of pain management people who are helpful. An e-report about how to get insurance reimbursement for different things you need (if you got an ailment where you need special equipment, or special supplements or whatever maybe you can get it paid for). : shrug : I dunno just throwing out ideas of the sorts of things I looked for when I got this ailment of my own.

    Uh, holy cr@p. Heh, I never thought to plug my own disease into the keyword tool, its a friggin goldmine. Uh, thanks for bringing this to my attention via your question, I am now going to implement the above :) The above is the sort of thing I would gladly pay $10 for a report that told me don't eat x, y, or z, and modify your diet to be a/b/c and you won't have as many flare ups. Or a report with 10 secret tips to get relief when a flare up happens. Some of these diseases, you have no idea, people (myself included) will try anything for relief.

    Sounds like youre in a crap niche that you were attracted to because of high searches and low competition... which they are for a reason.

    Why would that be a crap niche? If there's millions of searchs for something and there isn't any competition, wouldn't that be a good thing? My dad has an incurable illness, as do many people. I'll have to research what can be done, other than unaffordable (to most) treatment.

    Reallly? The same reason there is no competition lol. There's not much of a product selection, and people not looknig to spend money obviously. It's common sense.

    I wouldn't call that common sense. Granted, I'm in a totally different animal, I broker wholesale online, I don't do the blog thing.

    But there are many times where I've gone online to buy things and I can't find anything to tailor to my needs. So, I'm under the assumption that there are people like me that would also be looking to buy said things. If I had an illness and needed comfort for it, I would definitely be looking for some kind of remedy, and I'd know that it would cost me.

    So, no, I wouldn't call that common sense. I have plenty of common sense, and that's news to me.

    Okay, what do yo sell someone with an incurable disease. Then tell me why no one else has thought of it, assuming the niche is pretty popular in terms of searches.

    He did tell me what the niche is, and there's tons of things that can be sold for the afflictions. I wouldn't call them diseases or illnesses though.

    If it were me, I'll just affiliate with amazon on it.

    The two things I'd consider:

    1. Amazon Affiliate links. You can use amazon's own rankings to see what kind of products exist within the niche and what is powerful in selling and converting and has good reviews. You can even quote amazon's reviews, they do the work for you!
    2. Clickbank and other affiliate providers can give you good products. Look at gravity!

    Thanks guys, I'll mess with this today. Man the health field is saturated! I have near 100 pages indexed and zero traffic. Site is only 3 weeks old, perhaps thats the prob and no backlinks show up yet.. But damn, even the bottom feeder low competition is insane!

    Prob just gotta give it time, I always forget how it is in the first month of having a site up and totally freak out and want to stop writing lol.

    When it comes to health try searching for products that people would take for preventive maintenance for whatever disease or illness. That may be a good place to start.

    You mean that's who is preoccupied enough by a disease/illness to search for stuff to buy on google, people who don't even have the disease/illness yet?
