Good evening BHW. I have been in the sports nutrition industry for almost 10 years. I have owned a few ecommerce sites that have done fairly well but 80% of my income has been supplying products to storefronts and individuals who resell my products/brands online. To be clear my products aren't bullshit diet pill trash that are 90% hype and 10% sawdust. I manufacture quality products (DHEA, diet pills, test boosters etc) for companies that sell world-wide with multiple distributors in countries across the world. I have always wanted to branch out on my own, so over the last year I have formulated two new product lines for myself (my latest line is being produced for the first time as I write this post!!) and instead of dealing with distributors/retailers with decent margins, I'd rather promote and grow my brands online myself and achieve margins that are simply not possible with my previous model. If my customers can move 15k+ units monthly then I can too, right? I have had decent luck thus far through IG promotion, Facebook ads and good old fashioned SEO. I feel like there is something I'm missing to drive serious sales and after careful consideration I think finding established, trustworthy affiliate programs are the missing piece to the equation. Am I completely off base or is it worth my time and energy to pursue? Are there other avenues I'm over looking? I don't want to buy email lists as they'll be whored out and "targeted traffic" smells like bs everywhere I look. Is it best to sign up with as many programs as possible or should I implement my own program into the back-end of my site and handle affiliates in-house? Should I even use my site for this or is it best to design an entirely different platform or landing page? My products produce the effects I advertise so I'm not worried about blow back from that side but I'm concerned about promoting trial offers with recurring payments and destroying my brand reputation. Is there a way to pull this off without jeopardizing my progress thus far? The potential for this is HUGE if I can focus my energy in a direction that isn't a complete waste of time. I'm not looking for someone to baby me by any means, but a push in the right direction would leave me eternally grateful.
