    IMO a good way to promote weight loss products are forums. There are tons of weight loss forum's and if the post is useful enough and you mention the product "by the side" then there is a good chance that they will buy the product. That's my experience.. Good luck on that product. Looks great and it's not to fancy :p

    oh congrats , its in weight loss niche.
    cold calling won't work for you as its new product in market, do field work, meet local pharmacies, OTC, healthcare & beauty clinics as its new one in market offer free samples to check the quality of the product, go to dealers convince them to go for sample orders, better you hire a medical representative.
    all the best mate:)

    Wow! Congratulations!
    You should find some slim & pretty girls to cooperate with. In my country, pretty girls sell weight loss products and make their fortune.

    Excellent working getting it done, @Nut-Nights!

    Why don't you outsource the affiliate marketing for it? Since you manufacture the product, you can probably pay a margin to affiliates? Let an affiliate network do the work for you ;)

    I second this. Find more obscure networks that have bad weight loss offers, then try and top those payouts. Run some "promotions" if your network will let you giving 20-30% more money per conversion for a short period of time.

    Also go to big networks, but only a handful at first. Cap your leads small at the start, see what your ROI is after a couple hundred sales, and then go to the rest of big networks now that you have the data so you can aggressively negotiate a low-price.

    EDIT: Conversions on free trials for tier-1 countries is a must to be competitive. Nobody is going to try and sell your $xx product for some amount of money when they can sell somebody else's $x free trial and get a better CR.

    "Garcinia Cambogia" I've done several link building projects for this keywords & related search terms for a BIG client of mine in the past.

    Old things strikes me at first, :) If your targeted market is "India", then cold calling will definitely works out :) Try it

    @bartosimpsonio Yeah i am thinking about finding a Indian affiliate network.

    @Noah Hawryshko I doubt trial offers going to work in Indian market. But i am thinking about contacting US lawyer to know the legal process of selling my product in US market. Then i can go with trial offers.

    @Nut-Nights Good work man. If you have the budget, those telebuy advertisements work well in India right ?

    But imo the targeted market is kind of problem. I rarely see Indians worrying about obesity / weight loss.

    USA : this is where you want to bring your product.

    Good luck with sales.

    Go direct to customer via, eBay.in, Amazon.in, OLX and Quickr etc.

    Post better sales listings then your competitors and price aggressively.

    You could cold call weight loss clinics/clubs, there are shit loads in India and offer to wholesale your product range.

    Well done on getting this far, you took the risk of manufacturing something that does have demand. I'm pretty sure with that initiative you'll succeed...
