How to Sell Weight Loss Products. With more than two thirds of Americans carrying around extra pounds, it's safe to say that most of us want to lose some weight--whether 10 or 100 lbs. The proof is in the multi-million dollar weight loss market. This battle with the bulge gives you the perfect opportunity to earn some tidy profits. Here's how to sell weight loss products.

Decide which products you want to sell. You can choose from supplements, diet menu plans or e-courses. Metabolife is probably the most popular weight loss product you can sell from your own home or website. You can also find diet plans online and sell them to your friends.

Promote your business. If you have a blog or website, you can add a link to a weight loss website to earn a commission based on how many viewers click on the link. If you're selling the weight loss products from home, spread the word among your friends--especially those who are always on a new diet.

Throw a party and serve delicious diet foods from your weight loss plan. Inform friends that the foods they are gnoshing on can help them lose weight--if they follow the diet you're selling. This is a great way to make money while socializing with your buddies.

Be a role model for weight loss by losing weight yourself. When people ask you how you got so skinny, pitch the weight loss products. You can even put a bumper sticker on your car that says, "Ask me how I lost 50 pounds" to promote your business.

Create a weight loss product website. Frequent message boards about dieting and put a link to your website in your signature. The website should include before and after pictures, the selling points of your weight loss products and how to purchase it. It can make good business sense to offer a discount to anyone who is a friend or visits the same message boards as you.


Metabolife and other diet pills and weight loss supplements are associated with some health risks. Make sure you know what these risks are before you take these weight loss products yourself or sell them to other people.
