Does a niche about diabetic diet worth it?

56 replies
I was thinking to create a website about diabetic diet, tbh I don't have any info about it but I want to find a skillful writer to write some articles about the topic, do you think I will make some money from IM? I just started learning about IM two days ago, I don't want to keep waiting, I want to start now, I think take action is what get you results( money or experience)

Thanks

    Hey Salim,

    First off welcome to the Warrior Forums, hope you enjoy you stay

    The best tip is to just get started. Start by getting a domain, hosting and install wordpress on it.

    For skilled writers you could look through the WF or sites like freelancer.com (They own the WF you know )

    Once you have that setup, add some blog articles related to your niche, start a Facebook page and add a avatar + cover photo. Then, share your articles on that page and post that page in some related groups. This should get you started

    Hope this helps!
    Cheers,
    Aron

      Thank you, I'm delighted to be here.
      And that's exactly what I'm going to do, I have some experience with building websites and seo so the only thing left is the articles and they are the most important part.

    I'd pick a different niche if I were you. Unless you're qualified in the subject, or have a personal story to relate, publishing medical advice is fraught with potential problems - both legal and ethical.

      Tbh that's what I'm worried about, I hear that it's hard to work on a health niche, I have two niches in my mind, the diabetic diet food and tablets stylus pen. What made me tend to the first one is that is very profitable, actually every niche is profitable but Ofc there is a difference.

    Yes, it certainly is worth it.

    I don't know about you but in my country Singapore according to the Health Ministry statistics, out of every 10 people, 7 will suffer from diabetes.

    There are a few ways you can go about getting content.

    1. Google Research

    This is where I get started when working on health niche.

    I look for articles, blogs and forums I can related to.

    Then I compiled all the necessary info to form articles the way I want them to be structured.

    But if you find these to be time consuming, you can outsource this to someone else.

    Like Elance or iWriter.

    2. Youtube Research

    There are literally millions of videos talking about diabetes.

    You can compile a list of those whom you find most helpful and can relate to.

    Before creating your own content and videos as well.

    Youtube is one of the fastest ways to get traffic and best of all, it is free!

    I know a guy who makes $75K in high ticket offers using just this method alone.

    3. Facebook Groups

    You can also look for and participate in groups that are talking about diabetes and other related health issues.

    Don't think of making money first by asking members to click your link as they will see you as spamming and likely to ban you from future participation.

    Instead learn to provide value by posting relevant helpful info first. Then once you got people to like you, then you may consider forming your own group, add those people as friends and invite them to join yours.

    4. Offline

    If you are free, you can head down to the nearest bookstore or library for books that are related to diabetes.

    You can also join networking groups of people talking about diabetes and other health related issues.

    One site I know is doing this is Meetup. It works like Facebook but people there are either intending to join or form their own groups related to their common problem or passion.

    Hope these helps!

    You should always pick a niche that you are personally interested in. Those are the best kinds, and you will find that you put much more effort into your marketing if you select a niche that you are knowledgeable about, or at the very least, interested in.

    Admire your enthusiasm to get started and this is just my opinion, not to discourage you but to give you a sort of reality check and what to think about before wasting time.
    1. You are going to hire a writer for articles on a topic you know nothing about.
    2. You're going to find groups and forums, then offer helpful advice. Really?
    3. You're starting a site on diabetic diets? Yet the reality is diabetics often have one or more underlying conditions, have different dietary needs, come in all shapes, sizes, genders and ages.

    My take on the above:
    1. How will you know the articles are valuable content or just copy and pasted rubbish?
    2. Most of the sites diabetics find reliable are written by nutritionists and for good reason. Do you know a nutritionist who works with diabetics?
    3. This can go bad quickly. If refunds and complaints don't bother you, having your site shut down should.

    I've given you a hint in this response to get your site ranking as an "authority" site. It's not about hiring someone to write articles that you can't tell make sense or not.

    BTW, every person who is initially diagnosed with diabetes is given a nutritional packet, diet and a nutritionist to get them started. What are you going to tell them that is different?

    Salim,
    You have been offered a variety of things to consider.
    I work as a writer and My main specialty is diabetes.

    I do claim to be an expert in the subject for 2 reasons:

    1. I have had type 2 diabetes for 11 years (diagnosed).
    2. I started writing 7 years ago and I still retain my first client who is a nurse and diabetes educator. I have written over 1300 articles and 2 eBooks on diabetes and health in general (because diabetes can affect every part of your body). She's happy with my work or she would have stopped paying me long ago.

    If you don't know anything about diabetes except a few basics, you really do need somebody like me to assist you. Please ask if you have questions.

      This is a very lucrative niche. There are nearly 30 million diabetics in the US, and an estimated additional 8 million or more with pre-diabetic conditions.

      I have found that the most effective method for driving traffic is to submit articles to both offline publications as well as online ezines, newsletters, blogs, etc.

      Consider selling books, recipes, and products from Amazon. They have a vast array of books, diabetic supplies, food supplements, etc

      You will need to have a disclaimer on your website stating this is for information only and for readers to consult with a medical professional for any diagnosis, treatment, or specific remedy.

    I'm a diagnosed Type II diabetic.

    I started my own little blog about it and it's not really to make money with.

    It's more of a journal where I can document my diet, discuss different opinions on diabetes meds and treatment, and basically talk about how it has affected my life in general.

    I'm big into controlling my diabetes with diet and exercise alone, and not pharmaceuticals. I write a lot about how I am able to manage my blood sugar without the use of oral medications or insulin.

    Let me just say that while this is a HUGE niche, the competition is fierce. Unless you are a pro at SEO or you hire one to help you, you will have a very hard time getting anywhere near page 1 with just about any diabetes keyword that is worth ranking for.

    I was able to build up a pretty nice following for my blog through the traffic that I get from my YouTube videos. I get a few people here and there from search engines, but that only amounts to about 2% of my traffic.

    I am big on organic fruit and vegetable smoothies, and I also make videos discussing exercise routines, and general motivational stuff for people that have just been diagnosed. I also discuss a lot of about holistic medicine for those who are trying to control their diabetes with exercise and diet only.

    At any rate, the reason why I'm telling you this is that I just want you to realize that the niche you are about to try and penetrate is VERY DIFFICULT.

    Also, people in this niche are quite passionate, and can easily spot someone who is "faking it."

    Now, I'm not saying the OP is a faker, but in all reality, I sincerely doubt that any diabetic or pre-diabetic will spend more than 10 seconds of their time reading "cookie cutter" type articles.

    Also, and please don't take this personally - actual diabetics like myself don't really take too kindly to people who are basically just trying to use the disease to make a few bucks.

    If you don't have the disease yourself, lots of people will question your motives and for the most part, they just won't have anything to do with you.

    They will spend their time on sites that are run by actual diabetics, nutritionists, physicians, homeopathic practitioners, etc.

    If you are not able to inject your personality and your own personal experiences into the site, then how do you think people will respond to your site? They will most likely just move on and find a site or forum where there are other diagnosed diabetics who can actually identify with what they are going through.

    I wish you the best of luck as a fellow marketer, but my advice would be to leave the diabetes niche alone.

    Unless you have tons of experience creating and running popular authority sites, you are going to find that success is going to be very difficult to attain.

    Another headache you can have when you are running a website that dispenses medical advice when you are not in any way qualified to do so, are potential lawsuits if someone should decide to follow your advice and end up injuring themselves or in severe cases, even dying.

    This is all just my opinion from what I've learned as a marketer over the past ten years, and also as a diabetic.

    If I were you, I'd find an easier niche to get into. It's always best to get into niches where you have some knowledge beforehand and that you are at least semi-passionate about.

    A niche with a niche.

    I am a health niche blogger. I have studied diet and nutrition so know what I'm talking about. If you have no knowledge then steer clear.

    Once you learn a subject and post decent updates to you will get links pretty quickly...I got a back link within 6 hrs of sharing my latest article today! Without knowledge and decent articles you will FAIL.

    I agree with Frank.
    Diabetes is a very serious medical condition and unless you are a doctor or qualified to give medical advice I would avoid that niche.
    Why not try something in the healthy eating niche. That is a lot easier to learn about and has many sub niches to explore.

    IM can be very lucrative but it won't happen overnight. Taking action is fantastic but you also have to manage your expectations.

    I hope this helps. Good luck,
    Brad

    I was just thinking of putting some good articles, 6 to 10 about it and work on bringing traffic to the website, but i think you're right guys, i will just try to find another niche, but the problem i'm facing is i'm not good in any niche, just some info about tech, and the competition is hight, but its pros is i can learn quickly compared to healthy niches, last night i was searching about tablet stylus pens, and i said to myself why not working on this niche? i'm really confused and lost , i want to start but it's hard to pick a niche.

    Google Keyword Planner is your friend - some simple keyword research will enable you to quickly identify if the niche is viable or not.

    I don't see why it wouldn't be - but finding out if there's genuine search volume for related terms will confirm that for you.

    That's going to be more far effective than guessing or asking other people to guess.

    I agree with the others. If you're only doing this to make money, choose a niche where it's nothing to do with health. I know that, as a diabetic, I won't read info from people who have no clue. They need to either have diabetes or be a medical person.

      Its your perspective only, lots of journalists can write that super-quality medical articles out of fact-based info that no other medical people or patient can craft. Its all about training. You simply do not have to be a cancer patient to write cancer-related articles, right?

        Exactly. Nearly all medically-oriented articles in mass-market online/offline publications are not written by patients or even medically-trained authors. They are almost always journalists and/or marketers specializing in that particular niche.

          I'm sure that's true. I'm just saying that as a diabetic I don't read or pay attention to the blogs or articles written by journalists. I listen to my doctor, my nutritionist, and to others who deal with the illness. The exception is if they interview someone with experience or knowledge.

          But maybe that's just me. Other's may feel differently.

            As it should be. But many diabetics don't take care of themselves as they should. All of my articles (within dozens of other medical topics besides diabetes) is educational along with very strong recommendation to seek professional attention when experiencing symptoms.

            And it's not unusual at all for my reading audiences to share my articles and associated book or product recommendations with their relatives, caregivers, peers, health professionals, etc.

          You're right, and surprisingly, you can't differentiate the quality (and depth) of a prose written by, in our case, a diabetic patient, who is also a very good writer, and some folks with journalism major or similar education. In fact, I have written over 500 articles dealing with medical conditions for livestrong.com, and the articles were up to the par in terms of both sentence structure and facts. It was possible because of very strict editorial guidelines and fact-checking process. If there is a system in place (strict editorial), you can accept even medical articles from someone who is very fond of medical field but basically a non-medical person. I'm a programmer but I have written medical articles before. Do not be surprised, Google got neurosurgeons who later turned out to be great programmers. So, its all about your interest (I would say genuine interest). You can write anything but it should comply with a rigid editorial standard, which makes sure your work is publishable.

    Wow, 2 days ago huh?

    I will tell you this much; you're on the right track.

    In the 12 plus years I've been doing this I have discovered that there are probably 1,000s of different ways to make money online and new ways are created all of the time.

    But there is a formula that seems to work pretty well:

    1. Identify a niche market that has at least a few thousand searches per month and has medium to low competition
    2. Make sure that there are a variety of products and services that can be sold on an affiliate basis for the niche market you are targeting
    3. Buy a domain and hosting and install a relevant wordpress theme
    4. Start writing articles that focus on certain subtopics within your niche. For example, a keyword phrase for diabetic diet would be "cheap diabetic recipes" or "fast diabetic meals" etc. If you don't know anything about your topic then you can easily hire a writer to do the job for you
    5. Create a facebook and twitter account to promote your blog posts.
    6. Refer site visitors to related products and services by placing suggestive links in your content and a few other links dispersed throughout your blog
    7. Place an email capture form on your blog offering some kind of giveaway so that you can capture email addresses and make follow up contact
    8. Periodically examine what keywords are getting you the most traffic and where your traffic is coming from. Then focus creating new content based on those keywords
    9. Periodically review what affiliate programs are earning you money and which are not and focus on the ones that are actually performing

    If you follow this basic strategy, you should be very successful at making money online!

    It's not only my perspective. Others here agree with me. Regardless of the niche you choose, you need to learn a lot about it. The health niche is one where it does require a deeper understanding or the words written are merely that, words. Journalists can write stories but they must do a LOT of fact checking to ensure they don't make mistakes.

    I also agree with Laurence. I'm a type 2 diabetic and have been for almost 20 years.

    Unless you have a lot of knowledge or experience in this topic I'd stay away. You'd have an extremely steep learning curve. Even if you hire a ghostwriter you're going to need to know if what they're writing is correct.

    Being a diabetic is like a juggling act, long-term meds, short-term meds, diet, and exercise. Don't want your numbers to be too high or you're looking at blindness and amputation. But if they're too low you're heading for a coma and death. It is a frustrating disease as well as extremely expensive.

    You hit the nail on the head, Rose. When it comes to health, leave it to the "experts."
    I use quotation marks because the group includes medical personnel AND people who have diabetes themselves. Only another diabetic can truly appreciate the problems this insidious disease causes. I wish I could go back 30 years and live life differently. Then I wouldn't have diabetes and be blind in 1 eye. Nor would I suffer from chronic pain and a lot of other problems. I'm sure Rose would agree.

    I work as a writer/editor/proofreader to pay medical bills as my pension isn't sufficient. Sadly, this year has been my lowest earning year and the bills have been the highest. That alone triggers my depression, another side effect of diabetes.

    I am more than happy to be paid to ghostwrite articles about diabetes, which I am already doing for one client. The fact that I have written over 1300 articles on the topic gives you an idea of just how broad and invasive it really is.

      Hello Rose, IM can't be learned in two days. We're talking about the possibility. Everyday, hundreds of blogs about diabetes get published, but only a handful of them see success. People behind them are either very serious about the disease or victims, who know the problem very closely. My dad died due to diabetes, he at last suffered dual renal failure. I know what diabetes can do.

      You need substantial amount of funds when entering into medical niche because you can't compromise with the quality. The OP is surely inexperienced, but he is ready to take action now, which is why we're supporting him, but in order to be successful he must realise there is a brick wall waiting for him. We do not realise how much hard it is, until we try and fail, so let him try.

    How about - give someone good advice based on your own experience - so that he doesn't make stupid newbie mistakes? How about - don't encourage someone to "do something" just to be doing it when you know it's not the best path for him to take?

    The OP is asking if he should work in a niche he knows nothing about - the answer in this case is "no, he shouldn't". It's not about your experience (or anyone else's) with diabetes - it's about the OP's lack of knowledge about it.

    The OP said:

    I don't want to keep waiting, I want to start now,
    ...but just learned about IM two days ago. My advice is to take a few more days and do some research about choosing niches and getting started.

    He wants to hire a 'skillful writer' - but does he know how to do that....what he will need to pay....how to protect himself from bad writers, etc?

    While it's true that you need to get started to accomplish something - it's also true you need to know enough to know where to start. Taking action gets you nothing if you don't take the right action....

        I think you need to take a step back and re read the Ops thread! as most people at the start seem to miss the bit about how wants to hire a good writer but some have put a way different slant on the original post and unfortunately some hijack the thread for there own purpose

        So that it is getting derailed IMHO

      Just a complete waste of time. We have ALL been down this road. We get excited about a Niche where there seems to be Money to be made. We don't know a whole lot about it and we surely aren't too passionate about it. But we go for it anyway

      Only to find out after a few months it becomes tedious and going nowhere.And the interest goes to a degree that you end up just giving up.

      Everybody here raise their hands if they have done this. I imagine many lol

      You look back and think to yourself what a waste of time. If only I had listened to those nuts on the Warrior Forum who told me to look for something that I have some knowledge/expertise and interest about !!

    NO! i didn't learn IM in two days lol that's impossible but i just wanted to apply what I've learned, i thought to take action is the best way to learn more and gain experience , but to take action in something you don't know isn't the right choice though, so it's better to start with something i know, it's just complicated in the beginning it's hard to pick a niche.

    Thank you guys for the help, i really appreciate it, Warrior forum is awesome i never expected to get all this help lol.

    The person who fails the most will win.
    I don't understand why you are arguing with everyone else's opinion in this thread... there is nothing good about "failing the most" and that does not guarantee you will be winner in the end.

    P.S. I would like to emphasise on that fact that higher post counts do not automatically level you as nuts, alright, and I believe there are hardly any nuts on the Warrior Forum. They didn't form any multi-million dollar real business, so so-called nuts are not qualified to argue with me, right? Double-think when you respond to my posts. 7th December 2016 07:26 PM
    People were responding the OP's questions - and you have chosen to argue with many of the responses. Your opinion is...your opinion.

    As for the second quote above - it makes no sense unless you are simply bashing everyone else here.

    hiring a good write will be sufficed
    ...right.

    why you're responding to my posts?

    Because my work is done for the day and I feel like it...good enough? I don't like it when someone takes over a thread just to argue with what everyone else has posted.

    Your opinion is just as valid as anyone else's - and no more valid than anyone else's.

    Before elance became upwork, you could hire all types of certified professionals...dietitians, nutritionists, doctors, etc... to write articles. Which I suspect you still can???

    Some of them will have access to information that others don't. Such as scientific, medical, clinical trail info, etc...

    This is who I would want to write articles for me, if I was going to get into the niche. That way the info in the articles could be backed up by citations.

    The downside is it will cost more.

    I just finished writing a sales letter in this niche. According
    to my research there are almost 40 million diabetics in America
    and of that 9 million are diagnosed...basically - just like weight
    loss - there will always be money in the Diabetic diet niche.

    I think the thing that really helps you when the times get hard is to be involved in a niche that you are passionate about. If you don't know much about diabetes you may want to look at something you love or know more about. There are tons of niches that you can make good money in. You should pick something you are passionate about or it will feel like a chore.
    That being said, I would recommend using legal warnings if you continue with diabetes info. You can probably get articles at fivver or freelancer. You may also want to look for PLR products on the subject. These are articles you own the rights to modify and customize. I do not suggest that you buy it and send it out as is, but rather make it your own product. Hope it helps

    Sometime ago, I tryed this niche and with much efford I achieved some 60 organic visitorz per day (I made a blog, set up autoresponder, Youtube chanel, FB, Twiiter, Backlinks, Unique content, etc).... Even so I just made about $75 on little more than 2 years. I'm really not sure if this is a good niche, but what I noticed is you need big amounts of traffic.

    One of my friends did almost the same, but instead of focus on just one blog he made tons of them (some backlinks and some 6-10 post each).... 2/10 blogs got very good spots on google (some of them got 1th place on very competitive niches) He tryed with diabetes, muscle building, weight loss... etc...

    What I think it's about the numbers. Nobody actually knows well how does google algorith work but it seems that it's worth taking the risk of making many blogs. At the end hi was making about $50-$300 per day with Clickbank in a matter of some months.

    With that in mind, I tryed to make free blogs just for testing it. I dont have many content yet but I build 10 blogs on blogger on the ED niche and a couple of weeks later got my first organic visitor, with a very long tail keyword, but that's the result.

    I hope this info can help you.

    Natter has a very good point or a few really. Multiple streams of income makes the most sense. That way all your "eggs" are not in one basket. If you have a family of related products, (like weight loss, beauty tips etc..) you can link blogs or post banner ads for your other sites instead of using adsense and taking a cut. It also makes sense to connect all of this with social media marketing so the funnel is fueled. It is worthwhile to get as many exposures as you can to a person in order for them to like and trust you. (I have heard 7 is the magic number). Always acting with integrity helps too

    The physical products only get you small percentages (less than 10). You need to have a high ticket item and a lot of demand to make money this way. I would suggest a digital product. You can check out clickbank and sort by gravity (sales). Or there is warrior forum plus, or jvzoo. You can find some amazing products that you can sell over and over again and get higher commisions (50+). There are some sites that are 100% commission, feel free to Private message me about those,

      The trouble with health niches is that you are quite literally playing with peoples' lives. There are a lot of shoddy products out there claiming to have a cure for diabetes. You (not you individually) are going to tell me that some anonymous clod peddling a $47 ebook on Clickbank has found a cure that decades of research and millions of dollars have not been able to find?

      What happens if you promote that crappy ebook, and someone follows it and goes blind? Or goes into a coma and dies? Or spends years on dialysis waiting for a transplant because their kidneys wore out?

      That's the main reason I've never gone into a medical niche. I don't know what I don't know, and in this case, what I don't know could kill someone.

    Globaloffers is right. Knowledge will help you. If you do not know much about an area, you need to pick another area or spend a ton of time learning every bit of information about it. You need to be an expert if you can or at least very knowledgeable.

    That's a pretty big niche with many products to promote and a wide audience. So yes, in my opinion it's worth it.

    And the best way to learn internet marketing is to practice it. So the sooner you start, the better. Good luck with it.
