How To Start A Blog About Back Pain With Full Niche Research

Are you currently researching how to start a blog about back pain?  Back pain is a very hot topic and there are millions of searches for remedies on google every day from people suffering from back pain.

If this topic is something you would like to base a blog on and write content on then awesome, as today I am doing a deep dive into this niche and will give you top tips for starting a blog in the back pain niche

Knowing you’re perfect reader/customers avatar in any niche, not just the back pain niche is crucially important. Doing deep research into your chosen niche will put you ahead of the competition every time.

Most (unsuccessful) bloggers only ever write content which they think their readers will enjoy. They promote products to these same readers and wonder why no-one is buying from them.

This is the wrong way to go about things.  You must understand your customer/reader. You must find out what kind of media they are consuming online, posts they like, videos they share etc.

So today back pain is the niche topic I will be covering. I think you will find it incredibly helpful.

But one thing before we proceed…

Do you have your Website/Blog already set up ready to start posting content on it?  If not, are you comfortable doing this alone?

A few of my blogging friends and I are all part of Wealthy Affiliate University. If you have never heard of it it’s basically a platform for bloggers to network together, help each other etc. It also supplies the tools to actually create your blog and gives full training on every aspect of this business. I created this blog right on the platform. It’s mostly automated and a must-have for all aspiring bloggers to be successful online.

Don’t worry, you can join for free.  The free membership is free for life. The premium membership is $49 per month (I have a $30 off coupon below) You DO NOT NEED the premium account to be successful. I have many friends who never upgraded and who do well with their blogs.

Ok back to business

Researching the back pain niche took me around 3 hours and I have some really cool stats and resources you can use to build out your Backpain Blog.

Chronic back pain Stats

Back problems are among patients’ most frequent complaints to their doctors. Nearly 65 million Americans report a recent episode of back pain. Some 16 million adults — 8 percent of all adults — experience persistent or chronic back pain, and as a result are limited in certain everyday activities. Back pain is the sixth most costly condition in the United States. Health care costs and indirect costs due to back pain are over $12 billion per year.(1) Adults with back pain are more likely to use health care services than adults without back pain. Many of the indirect costs of the condition are related to missed days of work and disability payments.This Profile uses the term “adults with back pain” to describe adults who experience persistent or chronic back pain that limits their everyday activities.
