    Tries them, was using link tracking on articles, got around 60 clicks on tracker but none showed on on the site. Therefore abandoned. If you are looking for real good health offers try Moreniche.
    Their tracking is very good.

      I have tried them and got around 100 clicks for very good ads for PPC and no conversions. Not sure if this was bad luck but I am trying other offers. These were for free trials and great ads for PPC so I am very reluctant to continue with them.

    I am not sure if they shave off leads or not but I got paid twice from them (made 2 sales in total). The conversion rate though was like awful :/

    Remember, long lead form trials don't convert as well as other types of lead offers
    because they require a credit card number to be submitted for a conversion.

    60-100 visits isn't saying much. Those visitors could be looking for more information --
    just browsing. Most trials convert best with a pre-sale page. If you are sending traffic
    from PPC make sure the keywords relate to the intent on purchasing -- or
    intent to solve a problem. You can burn up a lot of clicks from those that are
    just wanting more info about product. As well with PPC, you may want to
    include the shipping cost, to pre-qualify the visitor.

    You can also find similar products at other networks and rotate them with
    the ML product to see what converts best.

    Hope this helps.

    I guess that those trial offers arent good to promote because when user filled the main form where it said about free trials, on the next page there isnt an option to get this for free, just credit card form and 2 or 3 paid options to choose from. There is just very little and unnoticable annotation about free trial at the bottom, and it is hard to understand. So in my opinion - these offers looks like a scam to users.

      I am with them. I ran an ad in Italian for an **** product. Got 2 sales the first day with only 70 impressions. They paid me on time. No problems.

      I dropped the program because I was using Adwords and I was worried the forced continuity might get me banned from adwords.

    I used them and I got allot of clicks...made about $475 with them while I should have made a lot more.

    I ran a continuity offer and on days when I send them traffic I made no sales and when I stopped the campaigns sales started coming in...very shady imo.

    I got a sale yesterday on a free offer and I havent sent traffic to the offer for a month....verrrryyyy strange.
    They dont credit free sales untill they upgrade to paying costumers is what I think.

    I got my money and never looked back.

      YOU TOO!??!!

      Thats so weird, i get the same result from when i promote their products. I was telling my girlfriend that a couple days ago.

      Ive made about $550 or so, waiting on a $290 check from them, says it was issued. Their payment scheme is really weird too. They pay you from 1st to 15th, but not until 1st of the following month. ITs all weird.

      They're a good company.

      They Def pay.... was started by two guys back in 1998, so they've been around for a while.

      came from offline experience of health and beauty products and took them online

      they won't convert as well as other health and beauty advertisers because they tend to be a lot more compliant. So their pages are a lot less aggressive.

    They shave like you wouldn't believe. I know of six classy affiliates that are close friends that refuse to touch them. I personally have the same opinion after purchasing a product through my affiliate link that i didn't get credit for. How does that work. (and note i cleared my browser, cookies etc before purchase)

    Don't think that MH is a scam company but conversions with them is really low and weird. Most of my traffic is from SEO and is highly targeted. With other networks, i can get sales quick but with MH, it's really hard to convert. Won't accuse them of shaving but i'd rather drive my traffic to other networks now...

    Market Health is definitely NOT a scam , but as with any network shaving is inevitable...

    The only thing that can be done is to combat it.

    My advice , push alot of traffic, split test the same offer with different networks, do your own tracking, and if the numbers are not matching up... Tell your affiliate manager to fix it or shove it.
    That usually lets them know you are perfectly fine with taking your traffic elsewhere.

      Glad I found this thread, i thought maybe I was crazy. I am sending SEO targeted traffic to an offer that converts, according to them, 1 in 21. I have 2 sales out of hundreds of visitors. Aff manager says I need to do better with pre-sale, just cant send them to the offers. And, I agree, I am working on increasing traffic to my sites and adding presale content. But still, the conversion seems incredibly low considering its targeted traffic. Might look at rotating similar offers and seeing if conversion improves.

        Be careful when an AM says something is converting 1 in 21 or whatever. ASK them politely what is the traffic source that is converting at this rate. You would be surprised at the differences. I promote some products from MH and one actually does convert at 1 in 21 right now, but its a highly targeted page and i get my traffic through organic results.

        They are legit though.

          My stats with MH just defy logic - so far in 2010 I have -0- sales with 365 unique visitors - all traffic is SEO website all in the same niche. They say the average conversion is 1 in 21. I just don't see how this is possible but the results are what they are????????????????

            Let us take a look at this a little differently.

            #1 Just because the traffic is coming from an SEO Website in the same niche does not mean you presold them at all. Did you?

            #2 Are you sending your traffic to any other offers which are converting at a better rate? If not, how do you know YOUR traffic does convert at a higher rate?

            I'm not defending MarketHealth, because I have never promoted them. But your stats mean nothing, unless you are converting at a higher rate with a similar offer from a different site.

      I think they are a reputable company, and I know I have read where marketers are making a lot of money with them. I just don't understand how my conversion rate can be so far off.

      I am going to test other offers and if i get the same results then I know I am doing something horribly wrong. I know I need to improve the pre-sale aspect of my SEO sites.

    I have been promoting their product on my weight loss site from a long time, but till now I have not had a single sale. This website gets lots of visitors from search engines daily and I am selling lot of clickbank products here. So, I guess I am a little disappointed with the results I got with them so far. Maybe time to switch to another network and try.

    Be careful with MH. In 2009 I joined them and after a few months, making a couple of $100's when they suddenly upgraded my payout amount to $25000.00. If I wanted to change that I had to create a new account!

    I am still able to log in so I made a screen shot to see what I mean. I have immediately deleted all there links from my site.

    Check the attachment to see what I mean. I don't know if they still operate like this but for me a reason to never go back to them. So in my opinion it's a scam.

    I've had a sale here and there, but definitely disappointed with conversion rate and the traffic is SEO. I think one factor that would hurt the conversion rate, which I've mentioned to MH before it takes too long to access offer pages. From the click, to MH's redirect to the offer, and to the loading of the actual page... it's SLOW! The redirect is the longest wait. Most people are too impatient to wait. Seeing the redirect happen and still seeing nothing happen for more than a 3 seconds while redirecting, could make them nervous too.

    I'm seeing the main offer I'm promoting take 5-6 seconds to load from click. Now that I think about it, it's probably one of the longest waits I've had for any site! Like I said above, it's mainly their redirect process that takes so long.

    There have been a lot of marketing tests done as well that support that page load from click does affect conversion rate. Amazon found in their testing that .01 sec longer in page load can decrease the conversion rate by 1%.

      Cheques? MH, doesn't pay by cheque, just PP or by bank wire for $1000+ commissions.

      No, it doesn't. I've made money with them, so that is not an issue. The issue is that I should be making more with the traffic I've been sending them. I'm convinced I'm losing out on some commissions because of the long wait on the page to load from click.

    I've been with MarketHealth for years now and they always pay, always answer the phone, always show up ASW, etc. These guys are legit and I've done a LOT of business with them. Some of their products convert really well and some not so well. Talk with your AM there to find out what's currently converting best and how best to promote. My AM is Adam Cory and he's great.

    I've made money with market health over the years, but only from referral traffic from my blogs, not from paid traffic. I think the presell has alot to do with how effective your campaigns will be with market health offers.

      Hello, I started promoting MH offers through a product review site and earned $400 so far and they paid via PAYPAL without problems. The conversion was 5-6% . The only thing I do not understand why I had 2 sales but no payout? Really do not know. Has some a suggestion on this?

      Thank you

        5-6% conversion is actually really great. The price on their products are fairly high, especially in the weight loss niche and mens/womens health. These kinds of sells are very hard to get.

        I recently signed up with them and have started promoting them. Hoping to see high conversion rates you've experienced. The design on their product pages are really good though.

    I had put up markethealth banner on my site for few months. This site was in the weight loss niche and was getting 1000+ visitors per day. After a long time, they showed that I made a sale though I was expecting to make a lot more sales.

    And later on they said they sent me a check for $25 (my commission for the sale). This was in April 2012. I still haven't received the check which they state on the website they had already sent. I contacted the support and informed them of this. I have yet to receive any reply from them.

    Needless to say, I removed their product banner from my website. Another sad twist to the story is that this particular website in question is currently affected by the Penguin update and the traffic is at an all time low. However, that is another story.
