    So a female (and good looking) friend of mine is doing alot of fitness and she is willing to start a fitness youtube channel with me.
    You know, those usual fitness videos like "How to get the perfect bikini body", "My morning workout" and so on.

    I will promote those videos mainly via SocialMedia by automated Follow/Unfollow and commeting + interacting with users by hand.
    However I know this niche is damn overcrowded, so I was wondering if you have any advice for me on this?

    Second, I dont plan to monetize much in the beginning, however later on I will use AdSense + Amazon ("I will link my nike shirt in the description") + maybe an Affiliate program. Any suggestions what kind of Affiliate product could work well? (I thought maybe nutritional supplements)
    And do you have any other advice on monetization?


    When its all set, I am going to let you know in a journey thread!
    Would be awesome if you could answer some of my questions here or if you dont want to post openly via pm.


    Thanks!

    Is this a hopeless venture or why is no one answering even though many people have read my post?
    Still would love to get some advice :)

    Fitness/ weight loss niche is one of the easiest to monetize, but IT IS crowded and you'll have to work hard to get some serious traffic. You can also promote some Clickbank product or later even make your own. You can post amazon links to treadmills, elliptical bikes ect. Plus, if you also run a blog along with youtube channel there's even more options. You can also build a emil list.

    For promotion I might even try spamming some relevant fitness facebook groups, like BTB described in his (currently very active) thread.

    The better looking she is, the easier. You really don't need to do anything except upload her videos.

    If she's hot, it will market itself. Especially if she's cool with that direction, there's a lot of girls who sport yoga pants, work out, and kill it on youtube/instagram.

    Why not also add fitness product reviews and include information where user can convert? If you need more on that just PM me and I'll walk you through options on how to monetize this... Good luck with your new venture.
