Which Niche Is Better? [Weight Loss v. Make Money Online]

37 replies
Which niche is the more profitable one? Which is more stable, reliable, and lasting (meaning in 10-20 years will it still be as profitable as it is today? Only ask because trends to change...)

    Matter of preference and what do you have. I mean, both are evergreen. So there is really no right or wrong, it is how you manage them that counts.

    I do not believe trends will change for them, they have both been consistant, the only reason they would change is, we would invent money trees and a pill to make everyone skinny.

    I would say it's all based on what YOU prefer and know more about. IMO, it's tough to go about promoting an industry you know nothing about.

    Both routes have a ton of demand and room to profit (no matter how saturated people say it is). But if you're more of an IM guy, I'd go the IM route.

    Both of them are evergreen.
    I don't think anyone would know what will be their trend in next 10-20 years.
    If I had to choose among both of them, I would go for weight loss as people have always been and will always be concerned about their fitness & health.

    Yes, as everyone already said, they are both EVERGREEN niches and will work 10 to 20 years from now until the end of time.

    Everyone wants good health and more money.

    Which is more profitable?

    BOTH... and it depends on you and how you plan to monetize.

    Many people get into this mass competitive niches and make no money whatsoever. On the other hand, there are people who are passionate about a certain interest, they set up a business in a small, not so competitive niche, and make a ton of money in a small niche.

    If you're in it ONLY for the money, you might be in for a long and frustrating route.

    But if you've got some passions then I'd work in cultivating that and making that work first, if at all possible.

      I would highly suggest as neither unless you know what you are doing. If you are inexperienced, why jump in with the sharks when you can learn to swim with the trout?

    People can't tell if they still earn on 10-20 years.
    It's a trend, and who knows whats trends in 10 years?

    But right now i would say make money online, as you can use those people as your affiliates if you learn them how to manage a list etc, it requires work but in the last end i would say thats where the best profit are.

    Right now i guess Health is a better trend, but its hard to keep earning there, as a lot of marketers still in that business, and got crazy amount of backlinks on their site taking almost every traffic source they can gather.

    Everybody wants to look good and make loads of money. So both of them will always be of interest, but simply ask yourself what products you get to promote for each of them.
    Weight loss pills, supplements, workout CDs won't make you that much money. On the other hand, if you talk to people about making money online, trading binaries, fooling the roulette, work at home systems - and you find a direct provider, not a network, your could get commissions of up to 200 dollars.
    From my experience, make money has way more alternatives than weight loss. On the other hand, weight loss is more accessible and easy to affiliate to.

    Both are great and evergreen niche,but crowded with competition, if you plan to diving in, make sure you are ready spend a good $$$ to get things going

    or you have to be extremely smart to find new traffic source that is not yet saturated

    Weight loss is going to stay forever as long as people don't stop eating or a time comes when fat body is considered beautiful.

    Make money online can change is someday the internet gets replaced by another medium. But as long as there are THINGS people will always want to buy them and want to make more money.

    Both of them are top niches and a bit broad niche, too much competition (so much money to be made) + hungry audience. You can build a site on a sub niche which will work better since the internet is growing everyday.

    ‘Make money online’ is better for numerous reasons. Almost everyone wants to make money online, but not everyone wants to become thinner.

    Everyone trusts anyone if they are making money and they teach you how to do the same, but people are afraid to trust just anyone concerning their health.

    They are afraid of diets, pills, and various products that supposedly help them lose weight.

    Internet marketers work together, and they are not loyal to any product. You can easily find JV partners and numerous popular forums and blogs to promote your links, but with weight loss there are a few restrictions…

    People will surely want to money online forever.

    I am puzzled... you are not a newbie, at least your statistics show that, so you must know a thing or two about marketing
    Are you making some kind of research?
    Anyways, the two markets are ever-ever-ever green and every business has its own phases and dies eventually. The question should be "How to find a way to hit those lucrative niches" .... If you find your USP which works - it will work long enough for you

        People will always want to look good and to make money! So both of these niches are "stable, reliable, and lasting".

        The question is: in which of these niches are you good?

        Have you already made money online? In that case choose this niche and show people how you did it!

        Have you already lost weight and got into a good shape? Then choose this one and show people how you did it!

        My good God it was starting to scare me people confusing these markets for niches. They most certainly are not niches! Lol

        I have a site setup for weight loss/fitness/health and it does very well. And since I've been online the MMO market has only become more aggressive with more people laying down tons of $$ for various products so I say they're both big.

        But because MMO is dependent on the internet and weight loss more general (tons of books, products and pills created for weight loss before MMO came around) I would say that weight loss is currently stronger just because it's been around longer.

        Both are massive, however, so they're both likely to be strong within the next few decades at the very least.

  • Weightloss has far more potential prospects plus they are not as familiar with the latest marketing tactics as many IM seekers are and I also notice the click thru rates are much higher along with the fact they tend to stay on my list longer

    It's really up to what you practice more. I know some people who make a killing in the fitness industry (weight loss/muscle building), but I struggle to gain a single subscriber. I've been stuck at 123 for over a week, and have sold $0 of product.

    However, I've build lists of 1,900 and had days where I've made $138 from one email to 300 subs in the make money niche. It took me a couple years to get there though.

    I've only been doing fitness marketing for a couple months, so I have a lot to learn about how people respond to offers. If I could give any advice, I'd say to pick your favorite and run with it until you're successful.

    There are PLENTY of people making great livings in either niche

      The cool part about finding EVERGREEN niches is that you have the ability to really dive down deep into your own personal core interest and passion. Because the niches will be here for the long term, you can spend more time really developing your message to your specific market with the niche(s) as a whole.

      You can begin creating one good unique offer, and use that offer over and over again for years to come. When you are in alignment with your purpose to create transformation, esp within one of these two niches, you will discover how simple it is to 'do-the-work-once' creating systems and just let them continue to run.

    I personally have had more luck with the weight loss niche than with MMO niche. Somebody else might have a different experience though, and be able to promote offers to the MMO niche better than I can.

    Which one do you have proven results for? Which one are you passionate the most about? Which one could you see writing about and creating your own products in even if you never made a dime?

    Stop thinking about the money and look at the other things that make one market valid over another FOR YOU. The reason I'm saying this is because both of those markets are VERY competitive so you'll need time to 'cut your teeth' sort-of-speak and you'll be spending a lot of time researching your competition, etc.

    Most people think that they make money online niche is dying off because of all the saturation out there but the matter of the fact is that it never will because there are always new people from all over the world who get online for the first time and are looking to supplement their income.

    New babies are born every single day and in 18 or so years, they will look for a home based business.

    Whether online or offline, this niche will never run dry of prospects for your business.

    I don't see one niche as more profitable or better than the other. They will both always be in demand and lucrative. One problem that you may run into with those two "niches" is that there is a lot of competition. Perhaps, you would consider narrowing down one of the two to something more specific.

    Why choose? I say go for the most evergreen niche of all:

    Lose fat fast while making money online and in your sleep!

    "Dear reader. I was once like you. I know the feeling. Depressed. Lacking the passion for life. Like you, I've tried all the 'lose weight quick methods' and none seemed to work, just one disappointment to another. Then I stumbled across JoeSchmoe's "Lose fat fast while making money online and in your sleep" system. The testimonials were compelling and besides, he offered a 100% money back guarantee. Let me tell you my friends, my life has changed from thatmoment on. Not only have I lost 45 pounds, I am literally printing money thanks to JoSchmoe's online techniques....I literally owe my life to JoeSchmoe..."
