Top Weight Loss Products for 2012


Summer is approaching fast and this means that pretty soon countless people will start to look for various ways to lose weight or gain muscle. This creates great opportunities for affiliates.

The weight loss niche is one of the most crowded ones in the affiliate world. Even though the niche is very popular all throughout the year, there are two periods when it peaks.

If you go to Google Trends or Google Keyword Tool you’ll see that the biggest peak happens during the first days of January (New Year’s resolutions), and the second one somewhere around April, June, or July. Quite simply, people just want to look good in bathing suits.

Since you’re an affiliate you can help them to achieve this goal. Here’s a roundup of some of the top weight loss offers for 2012.

Jillian Michaels

Jillian Michaels is a celebrity fitness trainer who has appeared on a number of TV shows. She advertises herself as the America’s toughest trainer. If you’ve had the chance to see her on TV you probably know where this nickname comes from…

On her website, Jillian offers a number of weight loss products depending on what the goals of each individual customer are. There are premium weight loss plans (workout, diet, motivation), wristbands, iPhone apps, and even an Xbox game.

The affiliate program offers three-tiered commission structure, which means that the more subscriptions you generate the more money you make. Tier 1 gives you 70%, tier 2 is 80%, and the final tier 3 gives you 90% of the revenue generated. You also get access to marketing materials, text ads, and banners.

eDiets is a truly impressive dieting platform. Every user who signs up gets access to an online app that enables them to create their own menu. There’s a huge variety of fresh-prepared meals to choose from. Once the user makes their choice the meals are prepared by chefs and delivered directly to the user’s doorstep. Best of all, there are programs for both men and women.

The affiliate program is based at Commission Junction. It offers generous commissions from $15 to $50 per one diet plan sale (depending on the number of diets sold; the more you sell the bigger commissions you get).

After you join the program you get access to various marketing materials, banners, ads, and real-time tracking.


Beachbody is one of the most popular fitness programs provider of today. They have a whole range of great products that are used by thousands of customers worldwide. Some of their most famous programs include: P90X, P90X2, INSANITY, Turbo Jam, Hip Hop Abs, and many more.

The affiliate program is based at LinkShare, so you’ll have to sign up to the network before you can start promoting Beachbody and their products.

When you do decide to take this step you can be sure that you’re dealing with a serious company that cares about their customers, not just some one-blast Clickbank product that won’t even be around next year.

Do you know of any other weight loss affiliate programs worth promoting in 2012? We’re curious to know your opinion.
