Health/Fitness Ezines?

by 15 comments
Anyone know of any health or fitness ezines that take adds?

A search brings up a lot but no way of seeing if or how they take advertising. Was hoping some of you gurus may know of some?

    I don't think many people would share this information with you but good luck! From my experience the best way to find some good ones are to just sign up for as many as you can with an article that is performing well on EZA... then track your results.

    Erm.. I'm a little confused?

    Sign up for them.. with an article?

    And what results would I be tracking?

    Simply how many people read my article? I guess "Place adverts in ezines" isn't as simple as it sounds..

    Ah, was using the wrong search terms, 'ezine advertising' seems to work better

    Thanks everyone

    P.P.S. Don't check the links from my signature because I don't have any health ezine in my team
    It does seem like 99% of ezines out there are for internet marketing - but how does one go about BUYING some marketing instead of just trying to sell the "how" to each other?

    Somehow I'm reminded of a circular firing squad...

    Oh well, back to... erm.. anything but Adwords

      What do you mean? Can you clarify your question?

      I think that you confuse the safelists with ezines. They are completely different. The subscribers of an ezine don't subscribe to a certain ezine for the purpose of trying to sell the "how" to each other.

      On one hand, the ezine is wrote by the publisher not by the subscribers. Therefore, the subscribers cannot sell the "how" to each other. The advertisers can try to sell their "how to".

      On the other hand, not all subscribers to a certain ezine are sellers. Do you need an example? Let's come back to your topic - health ezines. The subscribers to a health ezine don't subscribe to that ezine in order to sell something. They subscribe to that ezine in order to find information about health. Or another example: if you want to find more about a car because you want to BUY it (not sell it!), then you subscribe to a newsletter issued by the producer of that car.

      Got the point?

    True but it does seem the majority of ezines are based around internet marketing, so one ends up with marketers selling to marketers tips and info on how to sell to yet more marketers, who, if the hype is to believed, can sell to.. yet more internet marketers.

    My question then is anyone actually buying any actual products per se or are we all just "selling selling", sorta thing?

    Basically I'm just grumbling cos advice such as "advertise in ezines" is somewhat meaningless when even a major and broad market such as health appears to have very few ezines that accept ads.

    Up to their ears in affiliate stuff perhaps but advertisements? Oh nooooo!

    So I guess what I need then is an affiliate program

      Wrong assumptions.

      1) The ezine publishers do NOT sell tips and info on how to sell. The majority of the ezines are free to subscribe and they contain free tips. No sale of "tips and info". You don't know what is an ezine? Or now you're confusing mailing lists with ezines?

      2) The tips and info are "on how to sell", not "on how to sell to yet more marketers". Anyway, what's the problem? Do you think that there is something wrong to teach/learn how to sell something?

      3) What hype are you talking about? Do you assume that the ezine publishers are some scammers or what?

      I wonder what is your goal? Are you a going to become a second Kant or Shopenhauer?

      Anyway, of course people who buy products are buying the products per se.

      Wrong conclusions.

      1) If you spent a few minutes (maybe a little bit more) searching for health ezines and you failed then you cannot conclude that there are very few health ezines that accept ads. You can only conclude that a) you need to spend more time doing your research and b) maybe the way you tried and the tools you used for your research were not the best or were not used properly. See the "Jogena" example above

      2) "Advertise in ezines" is not a meaningless advice. Not at all. There are a lot of ezines that sell advertising space.

      The fact that you didn't find too many health ezines that accept ads means that "advertise in ezines" is meaningless? How is that? Maybe you wanted to say that "advertise in health ezines" is a meaningless advice. Such conclusion would have some sense even if it's not true. But looking for health ezines only and then saying that "advertising in ezines" is meaningless is really ... meaningless

    Well rather than berate me for being a somewhat bewildered noob who can't find any, how's about you find some (health ezines that take ads) and prove me wrong?

    You get kudos and gratitude, I get somewhere I can advertise

      Sure. Don't you want me also to write for you some good ads and ebooks, pay for your advertising space, collect the money and transfer it into your bank account? Of course, if you accept I can do more for you and of course everything is free.

      What remains for you to do it NOTHING but to eventually spend the money and in such case probably you won't make any mistake and nobody will criticize you

      Is this OK now? When do you allow me to start the work?

    Ezines are my most profitable form of marketing. I use them to market all of my reports.

    Like someone else mentioned before. You have to test and track. I doubt anyone is going to give you their profitable ezines.

    Now that's what I call outsourcing! Enjoy your weekend and start on Monday?

    Seems not.

    I'm happy to test and track, if I could actually find any that admit to taking adverts (as opposed to "recommending" affiliate products) in my particular "niche", if you can call health and fitness a niche.

    I'm not dissing the idea altogether, heck "advertise in ezines" is exactly what I was trying to do. It just strikes me that the vast majority of places offering such adverts are all aimed at the "make money in your underwear - on the internet!" types. THAT kind of advertising is easily, there's dozens of sites out there but I just figured, seeing what this forum is about, that maybe someone could point me to a specialist or at least a large enough directory with health and fitness ezines.

    I'm not asking which H and F ezine gives the best ROI, just "where the heck are they?"

    The few directories I've seen with some all show "Ads - No" or "NA" for the ezines I'd be interested in.

    Still, not to grumble, as it's an opportunity for me. Start my own ezine

    With advertising.


    But when gurus airily wave their palm and say "advertise in ezines" that aint as easy as it sounds. Unless your product is internet marketing...
