Having A Challenge With Finding Images For A Tricky Niche?..

Hi Everyone,

I've designed my first site and I feel fairly happy with it but there's one thing that I'm really unhappy with and that's the images.

I've checked out various sources for royalty free images but there's nothing really suitable for this particular niche. I've considered using images that are a bit off topic but to be honest I lack the artistict flair. I can look at a site and think it looks good but I'm not very good at getting the thoughts onto mine.

The niche is hemorrhoids and my site URL is http://www.hemorroidscures.com (deliberately mispelt to catch traffic!) I'm basically promoting Miracle H which is the top seller at Clickbank and the images I'm using at the moment are simply of that product which doesn't look that brilliant.

I don't really want to use anything to graphic (if you get my gist lol). Has anyone any suggestions to help my lack of imagination?

Many Thanks,

Nicola

You could try checking out other affiliate sites related to hemorrhoids to see what they're doing.
You may remember how to find/identify an affiliate site. An additional tip to search for them is to put in a keyword, then the word "paypal" or "clickbank" as these are the sites most likely to be trying to sell products.

Purely from experience seeing tv and web ads, I think pictures of happy people are a common occurrence in medical sales pitches (especially those where pictures of the problem would be too grotesque)

I agree, Having to pay a few dollars for a few photo's that are going to be on your site permanently is a small cost to pay to make it look presentable.
