The list goes on and on but the fact is the same. A large number of people tend to take that journey of reducing their body fat every year.

An estimated 45 million Americans go on diet every year, and in that course, they spend nothing less than $33B, on weight loss products. As an affiliate in this niche, imagine how much you will earn by the end of the year if you constantly supply Keto products to people like these. From the little statistics we've shown you, there is no doubt that this niche is a competitive one. Nonetheless, this article will educate you on all you need to know to navigate through this niche with ease.

What are Keto Affiliate Programs and How Do They Work

Just like every affiliate program in the world today, keto affiliate programs work when affiliates sell keto products to potential customers and audiences. Now this niche is unlike many others in the market, there are a lot of products under these affiliate networks and programs that you can choose and promote which brings us to the steps of becoming an affiliate in this niche. First, you need to sign up on some affiliate programs that have good recommendations, then find the best affiliate offers within that program to promote which will in turn keep the commissions coming based on the sales initiated through your unique affiliate link.

It sure sounds like an easy thing to do, but as we have mentioned, the easiness of this niche makes the competition top-notch, and the fact that there are a lot of baseless fad diets out there that have no effect to reducing the weight of people, makes this even more competitive in the sense that people look up to keto diets a lot more than they do other diets. This alone heats the competition in this market, making it bearable only for affiliates that have upped their game.

What Types of Products Can You Promote

Here are some of the leading products in this niche that you can promote.

Energy pods: Energy pods are perfect for athletes who want to maintain a top-notch performance by regulating the kind of food they take in. Energy pods provide them with the perfect diet that will regulate their body fat, and at the same time allow them to have a taste of what normal food feels like.

Keto recipes and meals consist of a food plan that will not only reduce your weight but allow you to eat a lot of delicious food while you do so. Sounds good right? And you can get a chef to do the cooking for you while you do the eating.

Keto Snacks: This consists of a lot of keto snacks and supplements that you can even share with visitors. Before today, we thought snacks contribute a lot to the fat in our body, but this section has just proved us wrong. This allows you to enjoy all the snacks you want at a zero cost of exposing your body to further fat.

The Keto niche is so big that you are not limited to promoting these products only because there are a lot of other products you can find if you look in the right place.

Payment Models in Keto Affiliate Programs

Every laborer deserves wages and the same is the case of keto affiliate marketing, as an affiliate in this niche, you deserve a share for each referral action carried out through your unique affiliate link. In this part of the article, we will look at the payment model associated with affiliate programs in this niche, and how it works.

Revenue Share

This is a revenue model that allows affiliates to receive a share from any sale initiated through their affiliate link. In this niche, there aren't a lot of options you can choose from when it comes to how you are paid. Other niches that are not as competitive as this one might offer a lot of payment models that affiliates can choose from, but that is not the case that determines whether you make a good income or not. The way this payment model works is very easy to keep track of how much you stand to gain for every referral action that is performed through your affiliate link.

If for instance, you refer a customer to any keto product or service program that requires the customer to sign up for a long period, whatever amount of money that referral spends on the platform, you will earn a share of it. The process goes on for as long as the customer you refer continues to use the services of that keto program.

What to Consider When Choosing a Keto Affiliate Program

There are a lot of things to consider before going into any business at all, with keto not being an exception. As we mentioned earlier, the competition in this niche is very tough not just because of the affiliates, but also because of the illegitimacy of some products being sold in the name of keto products. Here are some things to consider before choosing an affiliate program in this niche.

Your Familiarity with the Products

Being familiar with the product you are promoting makes the work extremely easy for you in the sense that you have a complete idea of what it does, how it works and how long it takes to work. We have come across a lot of affiliates not just in this niche but widely spread around the affiliate market that have no idea how to define the product and services they are promoting. You don't want to be like them, customers can easily detect a lie when they see one, and you trying to market a product or service you are not familiar with is a lie that will get you nowhere.

Commission Rate

Aside from being familiar with the product you are promoting, for once as an affiliate, you need to think out of the box and be selfish if need be. Choosing an affiliate program that does not offer a good commission rate will have you breaking your back to gain referrals and in the end not having anything tangible to show for it. The joy about this niche is that there are a lot of programs you can choose from and making the commission rate a point of contact can determine whether you make it in this niche or not.

Program/Product Credibility

As much as the commission rate sounds interesting, and as an affiliate in this niche, you do not want to indulge in promoting products that are not legit. Credibility matters a lot in this niche because when customers start using the products and services you proposed and they don't see or feel any changes, they will leave diminishing reviews on you which will cripple your referral traffic. You must consider how credible the program and product are before being affiliated with them. This way, you will have a lot of confidence in marketing such products and programs.

Cookie Duration

Cookies have always been our favorite and the fact that some of the affiliate programs in this niche choose to offer just 1-day for cookie duration is not fair to some extent nonetheless, if you promote such programs well then you will have nothing to worry about. But why go with a program that offers 1-day cookie duration when there are programs that offer as much as 90-day cookie duration? This is something to put into serious consideration when choosing a keto affiliate program because this will determine how long your referrals remain active until you are paid.

Payment Frequency

We find a lot of affiliates going broke before the next withdrawal window is opened by the affiliate program they are affiliated with, which is quite sad. We also found that affiliates are victims of this because they failed to understand how the payment frequency of the affiliate program works before they joined the program.

Payment frequency is also an important thing to be considered when choosing an affiliate program in this niche, especially because this will determine how long it takes before you can withdraw your earned commission, and also how much minimum balance you need to have in your account before you can withdraw. If the program doesn't operate to your standard, you can always find one that does in this niche since there are plenty to choose from.

Affiliate Trackers

Affiliate trackers allow you to keep a clear and precise record of how much traffic you have generated to your affiliate site and how many active referrals you have. It also allows you to know how much time you have left before a referral becomes invalid in the cookie window which will prompt you to remind the customer to take an action to validate your commission. Another good side to affiliate trackers is that they allow programs in this niche to award the best-performing affiliates in many ways. So if you happen to have generated the most traffic to the affiliate site more than other affiliates, you might be rewarded with a bonus depending on the program. Therefore, if the program in mind does not have this feature, perhaps you should reconsider one that does.

Traffic Sources for Keto Offers

Traffic sources for keto offers are so much that you will have to choose only the best ones to work with. Spread across the globe today are millions of people looking for a remedy to their body fat and regardless of age and status, anyone can buy your products or sign up for your services if you list out the benefits they stand to gain. Here are some of the best traffic sources for keto offers.

Social Media

Social media is one of the meanest places anyone can be, especially for the fact that there are millions of people who have different preferences to how other people should look, so you find that a lot of body shaming is done there. Just recently, Nicki Minaj was body shamed for looking fat after celebrating her 40th birthday which is something we see every day online. Now, enough of the negative side of social media, let’s look at how the same social media can be used to help people like Nicki.

Research shows that 94% of teenage girls suffer body shaming on social media platforms and sadly, this makes it a perfect source of traffic for keto offers. When girls like these are body shamed, they look for remedies. And when they do, where do you think they go? Social media of course. Most of these people have created a life for themselves in the virtual world that they start making searches on how to reduce body fat Etc. on the same social media. As an affiliate using social media platforms as a source of traffic, imagine the number of leads you will get when you present the perfect solution to these ladies.

The joy about keto offers is that they can be used anywhere which contributes to why they are the best. You can easily get referrals from across the globe to sign up for some keto recipes and meals, or even purchase the keto guides and plans which will turn into a personal weight check coach for the user. Your options for generating traffic from social media are limitless, for instance, you can utilize the Instagram and Facebook reels to highlight the importance of a keto offer and include your affiliate link so that interested people can get access when they come across the reels.

Forums and Communities

Also, think about giving free advice and including your affiliate link that will generate sound traffic to your affiliate offers. The best place to find people who are trying to lose some pounds are forums and communities. This is because they feel safe there and can associate with people who are like them and truly understand how they feel. Above all, they can assist each other by sharing ideas on how to go about the weight loss journey by recommending some products and processes to each other.

As an affiliate in this niche, you can easily infiltrate such forums since your plans are not to cause chaos, but to bring a perfect solution to them. Keep in mind that not everyone trying to lose weight is a victim of body shaming or anything related. Some are trying to lose weight to fit into their preferences, some want to make it to the military, or the Olympics. The list goes on and on, but it is important to keep this in mind when promoting keto offers in forums and communities not to upset anyone.

You can present keto offers to them by explaining what it does and how long it takes to work. Remember, you are giving this as free advice, do not make it look like you are marketing products to them. This way, your main objective is hidden and they feel your concern which will prompt them to look at what you are offering.  The best way to portray this is to give testimonies of users who have used what you are offering and gave positive feedback. A before and after picture will be a final blow as a lot of the community members will not hesitate to try it out.

Website Content and Product Reviews

Website content and product review is a more advanced way to get leads on your keto affiliate offers. A large number of those people who do not fancy social media and forums are left with website content and you will be shocked at the number of people who search for the word “Keto” from the U.S. alone. With this discovery, there is no doubting the fact that a website's content with the right information will generate unending traffic to any keto affiliate site every day. As an affiliate, you are presented with numerous options on how to generate good traffic for your keto offers and to some extent, the result you get is determined by how creative you can be.

When writing product reviews, you need to do deep research and include some key things that will make customers not hesitate to check your offer out. One of the best ways to capture the heart of customers through product reviews is to compare two or more products together. You don't necessarily have to criticize any product, all you have to do is list out the pros and cons of each product and let your readers make their decision. Thankfully, keto affiliate programs offer a lot of products that all serve different purposes.

Metabolism trackers for instance have a unique service they offer users, so also do keto guides and plans. The latter does a more complex job compared to the former and in a case whereby all users want is to be familiar with how much fat is left in their body, the former will be the best product to get. However, when users want to reduce the fat in their body, and they need a coach to regulate their daily routine, then the latter is the best product for them. When you make a product comparison between these two keto products, customers will go for the one that meets their needs at that time.

For the fact that this niche is a delicate one, you need to know who your audiences are before you can recommend any keto product to them. And the best way to do that is to maintain a good relationship with them.

Keyword Targeting

Keyword targeting is one of the best ways to promote keto offers to an interested audience directly. This is because when a user uses any of your keywords to land on your page, it means that the user was already in need of what you are offering and this will make converting very easy. The main trick here is to know which keywords your prospects will be searching for. This way, you can easily customize your keto content with such keywords to have them pop up on all searches related.

One of the ways to know which keywords to use is through google search engines. You can get a list of the most searched words that users use to land on your page and create even more content with such keywords. Keywords place you at an advantage because you only get leads from people who are already considering taking a weight loss journey.

Create a Keto Blog/Website

Creating a keto blog or website will place you at an advantage. So to say the least, consider how many people surf the internet every day searching for answers on how to reduce their body size without complications.

You will have been promoting your affiliate offers without even stressing about it.

You can make your content or blog posts about people who have taken that journey before and how they look now. As we mentioned earlier, having before and after pictures will be a final convincing point to convert users.

Social media is one such place where you will find divas who have undergone the journey of weight loss before, you can write about their stories and this will enable you on the other hand to promote your keto affiliate offers with no stress at all.

Focus on SEO

There are many ways that you can optimize your website and make your content rank high in searches.

Search engines use SEO to rank you higher above other affiliate sites in the same niche. This consists of things you do that will make search engines believe you deserve to be ranked and also deserve traffic on your site. And the best way to get this approval is to enhance users’ experience on your site. Google for instance cares about the experience of its users and will not hesitate to rank you lower if your site is not comfortable for users and when that happens, you must have lost the best free source of traffic which is the organic traffic.

Engage with Your Community

Here, we will cover more about forums and communities where you get to meet a lot of potential customers all in one place. Speaking of communities, you can equally build your own and let people know the purpose of this community is to help them through the weight loss journey by recommending the best keto products and services they can get.
