Hello there Sea Changers and welcome back to my series of program lists to assist those of you looking to fund your sea change with affiliate marketing. Today we delve into what is a somewhat controversial, yet extremely lucrative niche with my 10 Weight Loss affiliate programs to look out for in 2020. Why controversial? Well simply because there are some out there that believe that many of the supplements and/or exercise programs in use in some of these programs are, how do you say, a little on the unhealthy side. There are others mind you who swear by them so for the purposes of this post, I am going to simply list the best programs I can find and leave the health arguments for others.

Keeping that in mind however, as I run through them I will outline any that promote the health and/or nutritional value of their products or services. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let’s have a look at what I mean by the term weight loss and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by weight loss?

Weight loss forms part of the very large, and extremely evergreen health and fitness niche. There are plenty of sub niches to choose from here and many, such as fitness and workouts, and supplements etc., can incorporate a many aspects of weight loss into them. For this post however, I have tried to find sites that focus purely on weight loss only such as:

  • Supplements/Meal replacement
  • Dietary plans
  • Accountability programs
  • Complete weight loss programs

What can affiliate marketers promote?

Weight loss can be an all consuming pastime for some people whilst for others, their quality of life can depend on it. For this reason, if this is a niche that you choose to work in, you will need to ensure that you are coming at it from a perspective of empathy and problem solving. As you run your eye over affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site, it may pay to keep the following in mind:

  1. Know your audience – as above, your readers will potentially be looking for assistance based some every personal issues. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Know the risks – If your weight loss niche centres around sports fitness example, then your readers will not take risks with their performance if they don’t trust you or your affiliate site. Make sure the programs you choose are reputable and have good levels of information to assist your readers in making a decision.
  3. Be informative – After all, this niche is dealing with the health and well-being of people and their bodies. The more information you can give them the better.

Stats show that people will spend money on weight loss products online if it can make their lives easier – and also maybe so that they don’t have to deal directly with an actual person – so as long as you are solving problems, then you are on the right track. And to give you a boost, let’s have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

Maximum Slim

                Healthy Wage

                Weight loss affiliate programs - Healthy Wage

                Healthy Wage is an interesting site which has no products as such to sell rather offers cash prizes for those who reach their weight loss targets. The theory here, based on apparent scientific research, is that financial incentives and games have proven to be effective tools when it comes to weight loss. The site uses this theory to offer a structured and accountable means to the achievement of results for their members.

                Weight loss affiliate programs - Healthy Wage stripe

                The process is quite simple, you access the Healthy Wager calculator and enter the following information:

                • Weight loss goal
                • Gender
                • Height
                • Current weight
                • Weekly bet amount (this is how much you will need to pay to undertake the challenge – the more you pay, the bigger the prize)

                This site would be good for posts looking at accountability around weight loss. There are also Corporate and team based challenges available on the site.

                    Weight Loss Evolved

                    Weight loss affiliate programs - weight loss evolved

                    Weight loss Evolved is another interesting site and one that I have included here simply as it is a great sales and webinar based site allowing you to guide your readers into the program that promises that they will “never fail at weight loss again”.

                      Weight loss affiliate programs - weight loss evolved stripe

                      This site is extremely salesy and runs with the tried and true “run a free webinar with just enough info to sell them into a program” marketing plan. This is annoying for some, but does work. I would use this site in any niche where you are dealing with constant weight loss failure and where you can promote the “check this out for free” approach. The physician certified program is a lot more expensive than most others listed here ($397) making this a good high ticket site to add to your own posts and I see this working very well if you have an email list as well.

                      Amazon associates

                      Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can do so via Amazon. Amazon provides access to a good range of weight loss related products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the relevant products/pieces within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

                      Amazon’s commission rates are nowhere near as high as some of the programs listed above (4 – 7%) however some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

                      How to find your own affiliate programs

                      As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of programs that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category’. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space – especially as I could never even begin to cover every weight loss related requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

                      All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

                      Weight loss affiliate programs - affiliates

                      There are weight loss related affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

                      • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
                      • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
                      • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
                      • Pay decent commissions.
                      • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

                      In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

                      • Your website name.
                      • Traffic levels.
                      • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your diet pills is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
                      • How you plan to promote their products.

                      Conclusion

                      So… There are 10 weight loss affiliate programs to work with in 2020.
