Would I Be Crazy To Make My Own Weight Loss/Fitness Click Bank Product?

16 replies
As the title says would it be a waste of time to do this since the competition is so fierce? Would I even be able to compete with the big name products? I'm confident that I could put something together that works and would be really good. Obviously it wouldn't be as high quality as P90x or something but it also would be a fraction of the cost. Any thoughts or recommendations? I would market it with PPC, article marketing, social media, etc. and hopefully some JV as well.

    Yes. Read a book called ""Blue Ocean Strategy" for the proper way to attack a saturated market. Hint: It is not by lowering your price.

    If you have a good product and take some time to really learn the different ways of marketing you can be successful. I mean experience isnĀ“t everything. Have a great persuasive personality mixed with some sutbborness and you can make JV that takes you directly to the top.

      This is a huge market and there is lots of room for more. I have done quite well in several highly competitive markets by segmentation. For example, you could target weight loss for busy moms, weight loss for new moms, fitness for the busy executive, fitness training for obese teenagers, fitness for couch potatos, weight training for the handicapped, how to be a fitness coach etc. Segment the market by age, occupation, gender, geograhical, or even medical condition. Some micro niche products can be far more profitable than competing against a saturated market or established brands.

    do you think there is more money than the muscle building niche for products if so why?

        That actually is one market of which I have many niches in. Just as I mentioned previously for weightloss, break it down into segments and targeting profiles. My best pulling niche in this market is fitness trainers. The quickest way I know is to start a blog, and after a week or two of posting, you can start monetizing it by adding adsense, and any number of affiliate programs such as Clickbank, Amazon, CJ, etc.

    All the other marketing stuff, content stuff is easy.

    BUT, the largest concern for me, when I see this kind of stuff, is HOW do you get by the FTC thingy?

    Are you a licensed professionals to do so? I wouldn't want any authorities personnel coming down to me saying that I am scamming/fraud/ or giving wrong kind of information to the readers, buyers, etc.

    Of course, I'm not saying your content, product would be a non-professional product, but I am talking about IF I were to do it on my own, that seems like a bit scary, in a niche like this.

    I'd say go for it .. I see a few successful affiliate marketers take this route,
    the risk is higher for obvious reasons, but so is the potential returns

    Do the research, make it as tight as you can for your niche and allow the quality, combined with your efforts to carve you out a piece!

    I Go Hard = "Slanguage" for putting forth a lot of effort.

    Don't be an arse and try to flip something you clearly have no knowledge of against me.

      No I don't think it would be crazy at all.

      The only thing is though, I'd make sure the program was top notch, you had real results to back it up (not just "theory"), and is was targetted and converted well.

      Since the fitness market is so huge (even on Clickbank) ... you'll want to make sure your product is awesome and converts well, or the affiliate will drop it like it's hot to move on to one that's selling better.

    When I take lessons of economy I knew than no niche in a capitalist market you have a meal it will be saturated. The competition or the difficulty is her same one, the important thing is a good marketing. You have to think that the possible customers can not or know your competition, and it thinks that they are human and they have arguments to buy determined product. If a marketplace sells it is because there are request, request than never satiated pannier at all. Although, of course, in that you have your disadvantages, but always there is for all.

    Its really not that hard. Sure, there is competition but there is also a ****e load of traffic going around.

    Think about guys all the new Swiss watches that come out each year - do you think they give up because Rolex has been around for ages? No way.
