    What's up BHW,

    I am promoting as an affiliate a weight loss diet pill and struggling with promoting it as PPC prices are way too high for that. Where do you guys recommend to promote such product?

    I have 3 Youtube videos but they have been a failure - less than 20 views each in the last 2 months.

    My landing page is an unique blog article with information on the product and it has an overlay popup to collect emails for a sample trial of the product.

    Home Page:
    1. Go to alexa.com
    2. Go to top sites and select your category.
    3. Check different Webs listed in that category and check demographics.
    4. If you are satisfied with Demo. go and approach the web owner. Calculate your ROI and approach the owner accordingly.

    I can't really explain the whole thing here I tried giving you a basic idea. For deep knowledge of this you should learn about media buying and you are good to go.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the replies!

    SEO on this subject will be probably a waste of time and money (I can't write the articles myself, would need to hire writers) for a newbie like me as I'll be eaten up by the competition.

    I have never tried media buying.

    I was able to make a couple of sales using Youtube but I just don't know how to scale this method up as I don't know how to get more legit viewers. I was thinking about purchasing a Fiverr gig that ranks Youtube videos for keywords but not sure how good those gigs are.

    Such a wrong approach. That is why you will fail...You can make the best blog about that diet pill and it is all up to you. Yes you have to find writers, you have to spend for quality articles. Taht is teh part of this game. It will lead you the way to make money.

    one aspect of optimization that i think alot of guys overlook, which i think is relevant enough to resurrect this thread... especially given that diet is such a hot and enduring niche for so many of us IM-ers... is that you should optimize where you get the offer from... if you have a good look around BHW you will find direct advertisers... we are one for example... and I think people underestimate how valuable this is... I also think alot of people have a sense of timidity around approaching direct advertisers... especially if they dont have huge volume... but, if you can get direct on your offer you are bumping your margin up to 20%... perhaps more...

    If you new and you have money don't get in into media buy and don't pick nice with so much competition

    If you got a sale through YouTube videos, then stick for sometime to that method, try to improvise it with YouTube views and likes, so that you can easily rank your video. It wont cost you much as it will take only $5 to $10. Try to scale it.

    no he is right ... in this high paying mayor affiliate niche he would probably invest more money than ever earning with a own blog. if all the content must be rotten and good links must be paid ....its way to hard to start.

    so stay with youtube and do different KW there.
