Looking for suggestions for CPA offers for Nutrition/supplement Websites!

Profile picture of the author Natlex by Natlex Posted: 09/07/2010
Hello, I'm thinking about adding CPA offers on my health websites (mostly foods, vitamins and supplements).

But I really have no idea which network to join. So far I put adsense (which earns me ~$400 per month) and some amazon affiliate links on pages that deal with supplements that can be found online. Many people say CPA offers are much better than adsense to make money so does anyone have any suggestions on a network I could use? Theirs so many networks and it's hard to see what they offer without joining...

I get about ~400-500 unique visitors a day on this website so I think it's big enough to start trying out CPA offers.

I doubt anyone will but if you have a similar website in this niche I would appreciate the name or type of offers that have been converting well for you that I could maybe use as a base to start my CPA testing .

Thanks for any suggestions!

    Also what is the theme of the website? Are you focusing more on females / males?

    Yes, of 9000 visits last month 8000 were from the US according to analytics.

    The theme is mostly nutritional information (vitamins, health topics) and some supplements such as omega 3, multivitamins, liquid vitamin supplements.

    I think it's a pretty even female/male ratio but quantcast isn't giving me enough data to be sure but I doubt it's far from 50/50...

    What about age information for those users? And you're only providing information up till this point? No links to purchase through GNC or direct purchases from your website?

    Ya it's mostly information right now with adsense/amazon ads sometimes luring people away who want to buy products on the topic. I mena, I have an article on the side effects of a certain nutrition oil and people constantly click (5%) on ads selling it

    I took a look at the blogs in your signature...for the kings information one...you're discussing health related topics: biggest loser, professional athletes, ETC...Seems like you're not really pushing anything out to them in an aggressive manner which is a good approach in my opinion....build up a viewer base, provide value with your posts, have them re-visit the website and trust the content you are providing, the more trust in place the more likely they'd be willing to make a purchase or generate a lead from your website....

    To answer your question about the right offer: i would stay away from the traditional free trial type offers: Acai and colon...quick way to lose a viewer base is serve them an ad for a product that may or may not work (and that they may not be able to cancel) and i think we'd all be kidding ourselves if we said Acai and colon are the most legitimate niches to mess around with...of course there are legit advertisers in this space but i think we've all heard more stories about shady advertisers more so than 100% legit advertisers...

    Something like a Jenny Craig lead based offer, pair that with a p90x type of product...see which ad is getting more traffic, that should lead you to the male / female split for your user base...also something like this Calorie Counter Application may work well for this blog...

    Best of luck to you.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll look into it ! Those blogs are just test blogs to see if they can build PR but my main health website shares similar "free & non aggressive" information.
