People are fast becoming more conscious about their health in many ways, products and services such as weight loss, specialized diets, stress relief, hair loss among others are showing goods sales results on many online sales platforms. It may at first seem to be over traded but there is still a lot of opportunities in some areas of this niche.
The best way to get started
Find a product to sell, either by joining an affiliate program or if you know someone in the health profession that you can get products from this will be great, obviously this must be products that can be sold without a prescription from a medical professional.
Let’s use an easy example, you visit your local GP and he/she is promoting a new range of skin care products, you ask for a small discount on the price and you add a margin for yourself and start marketing the products on your social media pages, people will begin to show interest and if you make a sale you just pick up the goods from your GP and deliver to your client.
The key to growing this business is building your list of customers by collecting their email address so you can continue to market more products to them.
