    We are in the middle of writing a self-help E-book about Anxiety, and I wanted to know is that niche profitable? I checked it on a few keyword tools and it gets around million searches per month. Therefore, I thought to write a self-help ebook about it, since I am a recovering sufferer. Are anxiety ebooks high-selling?

    High demand but converting it can be troublesome when you consider the buyer. People will spend money for a fix or patch long before they get a guide that takes "work"- so while it's heavily search I would present it to yourself (as you mentioned you have suffered with these ailments and can utilize your past experience as a quick test) does the keyword indicate a buy signal or are they really just looking for free information?

    And if it is the latter- work that in your favor.

    I call you up and try to sell you something.
    OR
    I call you and offer you some insight about your problem. It makes it a little better and it cost you nothing. Then I follow up with a little more, this time with a service that will add to the positive experience you have had. There me a 1 time cost or recurring fee now, but you have already established value because you built that relationship and established trust.
    OR
    Content Locker ^_^

    Best of luck!

    It might be a good niche for some kind of interruption marketing, like PPV (adware traffic). I might actually try it.

    yes it is profitable, but also VERY competitive.

    A word of warning though, it is important to brand yourself and build a reputation in Internet Marketing, as you already know.....

    BUT, do NOT be tempted by the seduction of money and profits by branding yourself as a false MEDICAL EXPERT or Consultant / counsellor in such matters.

    WHY? because if you were to become a snake oil salesman, Karma will bite you on the ass, big time,
    whether it is by legal claims or whatever, by giving out unprofessional information etc...
    I see many people do it in the Health and related niches, and some are just awful...
    do not join them!

    Instead, build up something unique, like for example, have a membership site with an interactive worksheet / program / plan of recovery
    etc.. where members of your site only get access to the next level by completing the previous level successfully...
    and so on. You get the idea :)

    Think outside the box, but do it HONESTY and with empathy to those affected by anxiety, sadness or depression,
    and you will be a success.

    Good Luck

    I agree mostly with everything Goal Line said.

    Make money as the affiliate, but leave something like this up to an expert. Depression is huge, it's all over the TV with the next miracle pill to make you happy.

    I think the depression niche, could be marketed other products outside the specific niche.

    "Are you depressed because of your weight, erectile disfunction, durka druka muhat?"

    "Take Rebutrindepathol!!!"

    Realistically, I think you can pitch that audience health and wellness.

    I think yes, there's lot of people looking for information about anxiety, the question is ┬┐How can you win money with that? Selling? Advertising? I don't know, you must to test but in my opinon I think that It's a really good niche.

    I have suffered from Depression for the last 10 years but I personally would not purchase any book covering the subject unless it was written by a Health Care Professional (Doctor or Psychologist).

    As you say you are a recovering sufferer then that is the way you should write your EBook.
    Don't try to pretend to be qualified as an expert.
    Write it from a personal perspective covering how it has affected you and what strategies you have used to cope.
    You should also have a disclaimer that you are not a Professional and that anybody who feels they may be suffering from the condition should seek appropriate advice and treatment.

    Off topic:
    Just like the IndianGuy says,
    I do not see any reason for a neg rep from that post.
    Dont worry about it though, move on, even though your post was positive :)
    On topic:
    @videouploader
    As I said earlier, it is a highly competitive niche,
    but do not give up so easily,
    it takes time to convert readers into buyers,
    and people who suffer from depression will tend to do a lot of research FREE,
    first and foremost, before they spend, so keep working it, you might be surprised :)

    @Other posters
    Depression is a mental illness, one which you cannot see visibly,
    so please hide your ignorance on the subject whilst posting,
    it is NOT a laughing matter!

    Yup, I can tell from my experience that this niche is profitable, although I can see that it's getting saturated slowly. Don't get me wrong, there's still a lot of work to do, it's just I can see lots of blogs and sites dedicated just for people with depression.
    My tip is, try to look for niches still related to depression, but also associated with the causes of it, like being alone, having no gf, being obese, etc and somehow link them (I'm going to try this myself pretty soon). It's obviously quite a big market, especially for information-related products.

    Good luck to you, my friend.

    There is a asshole that stalks all of my posts... ever since I made a post about the mistake with the web design thing. He has been neg repping me for mostly every post I make. He is a true miserable asshole.

    In this modern hectic world, it is a viable and profitable niche to venture into. It's worth considering to make this niche into a business online.
