    I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of sales numbers (as in units sold) some of the more popular weight loss/workout products experience on clickbank?

    I'm just looking for ideas - I have an opportunity to be involved in a digital download product endorsed by a good friend of mine that also happens to be famous worldwide - worldwide fan base so I see a lot of potential - but I can't find any solid number - just want to see if its even worth putting on clickbank.

    Any input is highly appreciated!

    10m/year+ revenue on front end. When you add the backend that numbers becomes pure profit. It's a pretty dying niche IMO though.

    Wow. Well this product is completely unique and I think the fact that it is endorsed by a celebrity may help sales and encourage affiliates to push it. Who knows...just brainstorming :)

    I appreciate the reply.

    Dying? The weightloss niche will never die as there will always be fat people who want an easy fix. There may be more competition but the potential for profits with a solid product will remain lucrative.

    I agree. The fitness industry is one of the only ones that didn't get destroyed when the economy tanked. People always want to look and feel good. That is why I think this is a home run. Time will tell.

    yeah, yeah, yeah. That's what all the gurus are telling you, aren't they?

    People hear about worthelss courses, ebooks and diets that were bought by their friends all the time. That immediately pushes conversions down, due to disbelief.

    Now, you have a ton of competing products already in the vertical. People with experience and tons of connections. People with tons of money, who can create better content than the average joe, create better copy, buy more advertsing and launch WAY bigger campaigns. People who can pay celebrities to push their product.

    The money that is left in the vertical is for those people. Avarage joe doesn't have any edge on them. They will bring the conversions and affiliates will always chose them over you.

    Now, on the affiliate side - buying adverising is increasingly consolidating space, where product owners buy huge chunks of the available inventory and use tools and services you've never heard of. If you are a big time affiliate, you can afford access to them too. If you are small time affiliate - tough luck for you.

    Now this will consolidate more and more and product owners and their big partners will take more and more channels, pushing away smaller affiliates. Because that is what makes sense for them. When you have the money, connections and experience, you create barriers around your business, so other people can't take a chunk from you.

    This will go on and go on until these shady(read scammy) products lose all credibility in the eyes of consumers, because that's what happens when you screw tons of people.

    And now you are looking at very few products, pushed by very big organisations with exclusive deals of destribution by ad networks, large companies in the space and a few big time players that just have the connections.

    Now... tell me more about how this isn't a dying space, please.

    Have to agree with momchil, dying space for newbies, living space for rich dudes. I mean if you really came out with something industry-changing in weight loss then sure... but if you don't have that, it's gonna be a tough ride...

    I appreciate all of the feedback. I was just curious to see if the potential was there. Sounds like if we do launch something unique with a celebrity endorsement then there is a solid affiliate base to push it. I'll keep digging for data. Thanks

    Thing is, from what I've seen, people are starting to "learn on their own" what it takes to lose weight and bulk up. It's not directly rocket science and the information is easily found as a sticky on most weight loss forums nowadays. As a personal trainer I believe people have never been as enlightened as they are now. With that said though, the niche will still never die. There are still millions and millions of people that are clueless in what to do. The industry is packed with people trying to sell their stuff, people are always as someone said looking for a quick way or a different way to reach the goal. The thing that is definitely going your way is that the celebrity friend of yours who can endorse your product, other than that it might just be another product out there. I really think you should try it! There's a fee of $49 or something like that to sell on CB and I believe you'll get at least get one sale with a celeb backing it up. (Imagine if that celeb was brad pitt and he'd endorse it as the number 1 product that tought him how to get in shape for fight club, you'd be filthy rich from teenagers in a day! :] )

    Good luck

    Not dying but definitely saturated. Pretty much anything you do to promote it looks like spam. That doesn't help.
