Are health products still profitable for affiliate marketing, as they were in the past or is there another niche that I should be focusing on? Share your experience.
I guess affiliate marketing for any kind of products depends mainly on your experience and techniques you using. Also you should always choose products which could be popular and there is no so much competition in affiliating. It really depend on many different factors and it's not very predictable even with good experience, but i guess you should try heath products and see how you go, then try different marketing techniques and customers targeting to adjust while you are in business, to achieve best results

Yes of course they are. There are some great health affiliate programs out there. HealthTrader is a good one I use, they have many health products that you can promote.The thing about health products and being a health product affiliate is that these sorts of products are in very high demand. That's because the buyer is very desperate to improve his or her health and willing to try virtually anything to do that. Whether it be weight loss pills, supplements or vitamins and minerals or any kind of product that improves their health. And people are always going to want to get healthy in the fastest and easiest way they can. It's true though that when it comes to some niches in the health niche, some are much more saturated than others and have a very very high competition factor to them. That would definitely include the weight loss niche. It's competition is based on how much demand there is for it. The more demand there is, the more competition there is. However.... There are many yet undiscovered and untapped niches in the health niche that are just waiting for someone to discover it and tap into it. If you're already in the health niche and have been working as health product affiliate for a while now then you will be more clued up on this. But all it takes is a little research and even the newbie affiliate can get into the health niche in some way and start cornering some part of the market. It's the same with any niche or industry though. At the end of the day if you have an interest in that and are passionate about it, you can use that interest/passion to come up with something like a website/blog around that subject area that you are most interested / passionate about and that will reflect on your website/blog and people will see that and respond better to it too.
I assume affiliate marketing gain depend mostly on one's advertisements not necessarily on the niche,so yes health is still very profitable but you must know how to get your targeted audience.
if the right strategies are applied to even saturated niche,then one can make and sale tons of products.
I agree with anwebservices. It is depend on lot of factors and techniques. Eventually product popularity. You have to understand what product most demand nowadays and it is depend on your targeted audience. For example I have campaign an Amazon product few days before like Camera And I targeted camera related audience or customer and I got huge response but still infant product has much more popularity. So, health product could be another one. And I guess you can try with health product and it has big demand and customer. And you may know successful depend on your technique and business plan how you set up.
Best of luck

I agree with what is said above. It highly depends on what and how good the health product is. Recently, people seems to be putting more emphasis on healthy eating and health products might play a role in this. Therefore demand for health products might go on a slight rise. However, as with any affiliate product, it is important that the quality of the product is very good. If the product is very good, then I think it is still profitable for affiliate marketing. Personally, I have no experience with affiliate marketing health products but I learned these ideas through other products.
No one has answered in regards to certain niches within the health product niche. It's best to use a niche within the health product niche that you're very aware and passionate about. For an example, on Youtube there is channels dedicated to veganism. Some products you could promote would be Vitamin B-12 supplements, because almost everyone is vitamin B-12 deficient not just vegans. You need to be smart about promoting health products or whatever niche you're promoting. If you're not very knowledgeable about the product you're promoting, and you're trying to market a product not many buyers will believe you nor the product you're selling. Find the best niche for you, one that you're very knowledgeable in, and one that you're very passionate about and you may bring in more sales than a veteran marketer.
Based on my experience and understanding of internet marketing, I think keywords such as business, finance, making money get more hits on search engines. Since people are searching more for business and finance niche, advertisers also put more money on the ad campaigns on business and finance niche. After business and finance, the second most searched term is health. Since health is the second most searched term, it is also a second prefered niche for advertisers. Therefore, I believe health products are very good for affiliate marketing.
I am still in the process of learning the nuances of affiliate marketing. But regarding health products, I guess it is one of the top products that people care about. You can see the rack of supplements in the pharmacy. And over here, even if the supplements have the notice in the label that it has no approved therapeutic claims, such supplements are being bought like hotcakes. I’m sure you can earn from the health products for they are easier to sell than other household items.
Health products never go out of style. They are always in demand. Especially skin care products. Put the words “natural” or “organic” in front of a health product and you're likely to get a sale.
