Products in the self help niche

13 replies
Hi Guys

Hope this is the right place to post this, wasn't sure if should be here or main forum...

I was wondering what type of products people typically sell in the self help / possitive thinking niche. For the most part it seems to be books(ebook) and DVDs, or am I really missing the bigger picture?

Thanks
Phil

    I sell video courses and audios. The video I have in a couple of different packages. I have singles, sets of 3 and sets of 10. The set of 3 and 10 have accompanying audios as bonuses, the singles do not.

    I have these set up for people to watch online through a membership gateway.

    That format has worked pretty well for me. :-)

      Thanks for your help, yeah I think membership is a great format for this type of thing.

      That would be awesome, doing seminars would be great, and of course could be recorded for turning into a DVD or online content.

      Thanks for your help

        Guided Meditations are another great product that have their own special place in the self-help niche.

    Hey there dude,

    Self help is such a massive niche and it really depends on what area you are targeting?

    For instance if you are looking at relationships, that would probably be more tailored towards eBooks and such; however you mentioned positive thinking - which is a great niche for coaching.

    You can set up a membership site where you provide weekly video updates on new techniques your members can try at home to improve positive thinking. You can also find a way to interact with your followers; through comments, or a live webinar type environment.

    Coaching is the best way to make a recurring profit in positive thinking IMO. You could also sell a course, but that I reckon would be a little harder.

    Hope that helps.

    This is the most MASSIVE market. I definitely wouldn't call it a niche, it's too big.

    Products sold are seminars, webinars, high end coaching, high end home study, memberships, forums, dvds, books (hardcover and kindle), software, audio (music, narrated and hypnosis/subliminal). I could go on and on lol. Just think how huge Oprah is and you'll get it. Self help can go in so many directions: personal development, management/leadership, motivation, law of attraction, visualization, affirmation, nlp and on an on....and the great news is there's always room for a new product.

    One of my favorites combines two of the previously mentioned products.
    It's called Seminars on DVD. Essentially big time experts like Brian Tracy, Bob Proctor and tons more give seminars on say confidence and then it is packaged and sold as a dvd. I think most are around $100. But absolute gold!

    Wow guys, so many cool ideas. Yeah, I bought a self guided hypnosis CD a while ago by a guy called Glenn Harold, I was amazed how effective it was, even just for relaxing! My problem was staying awake, I kept nodding off!!

    I like the idea of seminars which can then be recorded. Of course, that's quite a way down the line but doable if you put your mind to it. I love the topic of positive thinking, but also find meditation fascinating.

    Thanks again guys for your help

      Hi Phil

      I create programs & products blending NLP and law of attraction ... so it overlaps with coaching, meditation etc. plus, as you may know NLP was born out of hypnosis - so they all overlap.

      I'm not sure why you say recording seminars is a way down the line ...? But you are certainly right in saying that it can be done if you put your MIND to it!! (lol)

      I'm in the UK too ... happy to talk if you think we might hook up on a project, brainstorm or something. Get in touch if you'd like to.

      Trevor.

    I've seen a few audio books and courses available that are self help.
    I'm sure there are a lot more.
