    So i started to promote a weight loss product for a small company 6 months ago. At first conversion rate was good, then things started to slow down drastically since mid August. I know it's back-to-school and sales go down hill. The company said conversion will be much better on September, but actually it get even worse while the traffic is almost the same !!! He then explain that it's hot in USA these days and people dont buy weight loss product much.

    I dont know should i believe him or not, there is a chance that my sales are being shaved. Does anyone working on weight loss niche have same problem ?

    I too am in the weight loss niche, but I'm not noticing any unusual drop in either traffic or resulting sales, if it's any help to you.

    This time of year is always pretty slow compared to the post New Year and pre summer times. People are still buying, just not like during the peak buying time for weight loss.

    I think weight loss niche is not slow these days. You may have some technical problems to highlight your products to the customers. Try to overcome these limitations, I am sure you will make better. Thanks for sharing!!!!

    no, this is a 100% evergreen niche, its always profitable. Now the rebill industry that was tied to it has taken some hits, but not the niche overall in general

    Sometimes it could be that the product is know and doesn't work as well as it claim, bad reviews and others can bring about decline in sales or even poor landing page.

    Have you looked into other weightloss products, compare and contrast or even give them a shot and test trial?

    The fitness industry has its highs and lows. Usually heading into fall and winter, things slow down a little bit, but once Jan hits, everything comes at you like a wave
