Could I monetise them? Do they need to be specific? Could you suggest a few I could try? Thanks so much for your help just really stuck on this right now! Thanks!

First, welcome to the forum. Make an introduction post so we can get to know you.

As for a health Instagram, what purpose would it serve?

Would you be creating original content aimed at helping people or recycling other content?

Who are you helping and how?

These are the important questions to ask before you just pick a niche and try and monetize it.

Fitness and health brands are so oversaturated on Instagram. And even niches like paleo and gluten free aren't really even niche anymore. How would you distinguish yourself from the hundreds of other pages? Why would someone want to learn from you?

I don't post these questions to turn you away from the idea, but you should think critically before you become part of an overcrowded market.

To start, I would explore problems that you may have had in your fitness and health journey and look at some things that you think could have been improved or may not have been available to you. Those are things that I would pursue rather than just a generic health Instagram page.

Hi, thanks for your very helpful response. Would a health sub niche be needed? I was thinking detox or atozofdiets. I'm not sure how to come up with a problem I've had. Could I just search internet for very specific health sub niches? Is there a way to find profitable subniches? Or should I just do another niche on instagram all together and not health? Thanks again for your response!

Have you read the book this forum is based on?

As of right now, you're chasing money. You're looking for a profitable sub niche.

You're not solving anything for anyone.

hi, I thought of some niches but not sure if they solve a problem. They are healthshopoholic, healingceliacwithfood, latesthealthtrends, longevityhowto, guineaworldrecordhealth, diyhealthhacks. Are there good niches? Also i don't know if these solve a problem? Thanks a lot!

One of the ones I mentioned was helping people with celiac. The others are helping people with their health. Do I have to be specific with who I'm helping?
Youre glossing over the most important part of Scot reply.

Who are you helping?

Definition I found with 5 seconds of googling

business : research and analysis of a company or organization done in preparation for a business transaction (such as a corporate merger or purchase of securities)

Instead of just picking a health niche, I have a business with the potential to make $10 million in the next five years that is in an untapped niche.

Want my business plan?

...

I feel like you're missing the point.

So I'm going to break it down Barney style.

Ok let's just pretend you pick a niche of celiac disease. Ok, what do you do now? Post pictures on Instagram of...? Instagram is a photo sharing site.

Ok so you post celiac related photos with some hashtags.

What are you accomplishing by this?

Are you sending them to your site that has meal plans for celiac disease patients?

There are hundreds of blogs like this. Why is yours better? Why is yours different? Why should anyone care that you've made this site?

You're still missing the point here. Business isn't "pick a niche and blog about it until you make money" That ship sales 15 years ago.



No one is going to tell you how to run or build a business when you haven't taken a single step to do so yourself.

The Fastlane Forum is not a vending machine where you insert a question and get a business plan out the other end.

Seriously, read the book this forum is based on and it will make so much more sense what we're trying to pull out of you.

Hi, I don't get 100% what your saying? How do I do research to accomplish this? Do I need an untapped niche? How do I go about getting one? Would I need to know all the other competitors? Should I do market research and how? How do I find something different from all the rest? Can I learn this? I definitely want to read the book to understand. Thanks!

You still have not answered my questions.

I'll ask two simple ones. If you can't answer these, I'm done. And I venture to guess the rest of the forum will be too.


Why do you think you need to find a health niche on Instagram?

If you find one, give me an example of what you would do next.

o
I would want to help people generally with their health problems. I don't know if I need to be more targeted with it thoughim. If I choose healthshopoholic i would show pictures of latest health trending products and latest trends and pros and cons of each and then put a guide to best products book or other informative about latest health trends or something in my bio to sell. Otherwise I'd choose an ailment and ways to help that by selling a book and posting pictures about best foods and things to help. I would find a more untapped niche though with that. Or I would with longevityhowto I would help people know how to live longer and sell a book explaining that. I would target a more specific audience though for this but undecided. I would be helping people who are into health and want to live longer lives. I'm not sure what your question is why do I need to find one: because I want to help people with their health and I'm passionate about it. Could you explain that question?

The best one is the one that you actually follow and believe in? People tend to react to sincerity and genuine interest rather than something chosen arbitrarily to subscribe to. What's /YOUR/ lifestyle? Make an Instagram about that, if anything!
