It takes a good heart to sell people supplements’ online, since you wouldn’t want to just make money not knowing how it can affect another person. But I know you knew that.

Let me stop holding you back, and Let’s get started with the goods!

The Land Of The Brave, And The Home Of The Supplements

Have you landed here today, and you didn’t only know how to sell supplements’ online, but what the heck are you going to sell? Don’t worry if you don’t, because you’ll be learning more about it in a second, after I tell you why am I giving you advice.

My first experience with supplements’ came as a kid, drinking fish oil(I know gross), taking vitamin D, to those fruit Flintstones brick mashable bitter supplements’. Fast forward 20 years after that, and I feel like I’ve tried more than my fair share. It was not until my high schooldays where I had my first taste of being on the other end.

I was helping a friends first aid company promote first aid kits, and supplements’ on the side. On the table was everything from:

  • joint supplements
  • vitamins
  • heart supplements
  • supplements for diet
  • workout supplements

… You name it! But there was thing still cold on my plate…

Not knowing which one’s to target the best. In other words, which one’s would bring me the highest Return on my investment(ROI)? I was certainly not following the markets, I was no business mastermind, not even a minimind. But I took this experience and I flipped the switch on the online world.

In 2018, I began my first actual online business experience, and I was working within the health niche industry. Among helping others relive their lower back pain, and inflammation, I knew what I wanted to target.

Vitamin Supplements

This was my first venture on the online marketplace, and it took off well to start, thanks to my site. My objective was to help patients clear their inflammation, and reduce their wealth by eating healthier. And what tagged along were:

  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin 3
  • Omega 3
  • Omega 6

Sitting on my butt and watching the rest do its job was not an option, as I turned over to my next project, selling joint pain supplements’, and diet supplements’. They were promising, and I had gathered a great fellowship, and continuous purchase. Here’s a little preview of what I do:

So here are the steps to selecting which supplements’ to sell if you don’t know yet already:

Step 1. Do you have experience? I usually dig up what I know before sticking my head in other directions. If there are supplements’ you feel most comfortable with and you have a good deal of knowledge in, go for that. In my experience, I learned that trial and testing a supplement out, will supply you with great confidence, and make you credible.

Step 2. Do your research. Are there supplements’ you like and want to know more about? You can use tools like google and Amazon to search for supplements’, read into, and give it a promotion go.

and for a little kick, you can start with a search like this one:

Step 3. Focus on one at a time. I get it, more is better, but not out from the gates. I like to pick a certain supplement category like joints for example, and put my work and focus on making it the best, presentable, and caring for others.

The Quality Vs Quantity Factor

There are so many supplements’ int the markets today, that it’s hard to tell which one’s fit, and which one’s just need to go. If you’re looking for quantity before quality, you could be missing out on a huge sell. Let me tell you why.

People are really smart, they do their own research before coming across to you. So how can you catch there attention? Aim for what is already working, and for the newbies to a certain product, make sure you sell in singles and not in bundles from the start. This will ensure you gain trust, and you’re offering people the best price for their needs.

Here’s a supplement that might come off phony:

Then you can begin to sell in bundles, or at higher volumes. One thing you ALWAYS want to keep in mind is to put yourself in your customer or “Avatars” shoes and ask yourself:

“What would I want?”

Why is this important? It’ll help you gain a greater understanding for what supplements your audience will want once you get to selling them. Let me draw it up on the board…

I remember when I first started having trouble with my joint pain, I wanted to buy anything that would relieve my pain FAST. Little did I know at the time that fast didn’t usually translate to quality, which brings me to my next point.

Fast doesn’t necessarily mean you have a WINNER, so then what does it come down to?

3 things my friend:

  1. Post Recovery
  2. Ingredients
  3. Prevention

Every supplement usually has 1 or the other, but if you can find that ONE supplement that can mesh all three of these qualifications together, you’re in for the long term business. BOOM!

The Models Of Selling Your Next Supplements

Now, onto the main course, Let’s get dosing!

Not quite, but I want you to see that like there are no shortage of supplements’, there are no shortages of how to sell supplements’ in the online web. Here are the 3 ways that are most effective and safe:

1. Dropshipping/Directly Selling

The dropshipping method is like the old school meets the new school. With this method, you can purchase the supplement of your wish from the wholesaler at its original price, and sell it under your brand or site. You can choose to leverage big boy companies like Amazon or EBay to sell through them. What you would have to do is:

1. Setup and Amazon Account

2. Set up Amazon FBA

3. Follow their guidelines

4. Get to selling

Amazon and eBay draw and drive millions of people to them every single day, each one of them looking for the next superior joint supplement, safe dieting pill, and much more in the realm. I tried Amazon FBA, and it was a great way to start, but I eventually found a more suitable interest(Which I will mention later down below).

Setting up a site is a viable option, and the route I would take. You can use Shopify, Wooecomerce, and build a wordpress site within a matter of minutes, and create an Amazon store. I like the idea of having an online store for a retailer, but I also like flexibility, and you get the best of both worlds.

2. MLM

Multi-Level Marketing online companies(better known as MLM) have a reputation in the direct sales department. What I mean by this is that you don’t hold an inventory like you would perhaps in a dropshipping model, but you would be promoting products already set for you. As a seller, you don’t select all the time what you’d like to sell, rather what that authority would like you to. But don’t take it as a handcuff sort of deal, you can also benefit from inviting people.

Usually, your payout comes from recruiting, and spreading the word of mouth to your:

  • family
  • friends
  • acquaintances

And sometimes you will direct to get out into the world and promote.


The pros and cons:


  • You get to joint a reputable company
  • You need no site
  • If you’re extroverted, you’ll like it greatly
  • You don’t have to take in inventory


  • Reviews can thrash the company – too many opinions
  • No site to select your traffic/audience
  • rely on family and friends

I tried the MLM scheme for some reputable companies like CTFO, Herbalife, and life was great for months, and then I came to the conclusion that I needed my own authority, and to have control of what I sell.

3. Affiliate Marketing

I can finally take my full breath, as I’m sitting here on my couch writing to you about the next best thing. Affiliate Marketing offers an extensive alternative approach to Dropshipping, and MLM, in that you don’t have to touch single product, hold inventory, or work on one line of commissions!

Everything is done for you online. The thing I absolutely love about this model is that you don’t have to take on any risks of buying a product, or sticking to only one. This eliminates your chance of failure, and instead it can sky rocket your earnings.

I remember having a supplement for joint pain that I was endorsing, and I noticed not much traction and earnings. So I mad an adjustment. I promoted a different line, and almost immediately began to see results.

The Word affiliate means, you’re selling, promoting your business to help large retailers, or different market resources. You’d build your own website, create content, attract visitors, and get the MULLAH(Money).

Affiliate marketing is very versatile, that in fact you don’t need to promote just supplements. It can be about anything!

For the sake of selling supplements, Let’s just say that I created a website named the “health Mentor”. I do not need to limit my choice to just selling one type of supplement brand, I can place multiple supplements on one site!

Literally, within minutes, you can have an affiliate marketing website up and running with a Blog and you can start reviewing and writing about different products like I show in my how to sell products on a website article.

This Affiliate Marketing model is my go to solution, and the reason I’ve been able to enjoy the online world without the pressure of having to hold my own inventory. It’s easy to learn, all you would need is some good training, and a spectacular community to turn to like Wealthy Affiliate. There you’ll learn everything and anything about selling products, creating helpful and informative content, and how to make a great profit margin.

With the Wealthy Affiliate business model system, I was able to learn just about everything there is to digital marketing(a big thanks to its up to date affiliate training), and I took my knowledge and skills that I learned, to setup my own health niche, and supplement based website.

A few takeaways:

We live in 2018, and not everything needs to start with the “traditional website”. Hey! Look I get it, a website is like the Great Great Great Grandfather in our ancestry that we should all learn to love and take a couple tips away from. But…

It doesn’t mean they are your only grandfather. Can you see the point I’m getting across? Please, let me clarify. What I mean is that there are more ways than one, some methods are:

  • old
  • new

PUMP PUMP! The brakes are on pause, because I am not going to tell you to neglect the website, but rather improve your chances of getting a larger chunk of the apple pie. And guess what? That’s the secret I’m about to share with you…

I Have A Secret, Ready To Hear It?

Is it obvious I have a secret? Maybe I was a couple sentences too pre-mature but Hey, I am excited to share things with you. Besides, the name of the title might have something to do with that.

I have a secret to share with you right now and it’s thrilling! I’m positive it will be able to skyrocket your conversions by selling your supplements’ online. If you want to sell supplements online, there are two ways of looking at it:

  • You can have your own product
  • Sell someone elses prodcut

…As I might have mentioned earlier. So The website can come in handy either way, but it’s 2018 and you might not want to take forever to attract traffic, get your leads, and wait around for your phone to send you an email update that you have added an new person to your list just so you can get a cut from a sale.

It’s getting tougher to make sells with physical products,  not to mention especially if you’re doing it in a “casual” way. But before I share with you my other method than a traditional website, this is where I started:

Months into my training and implementing what I learned at Wealthy Affiliate, I came across an article, a “how to make 6 figure article”.

The training taught me skills and techniques to better promote my joint supplements’ and many more offers. It really worked! I had increased traffic, more purchases, and I finally had an answer. If at any time you’d like to learn more about that, and actually see my supplements page I’d be happy to help you get to that page from within WA.

I had a formula, so surely I was off to the races hitting those sales right? UH not even close. It took time until I finally could make them, like about 2-3 months. Although I started cooking some sales, It was far from what I wanted.

ZAP! And then it happened.

Two Words- FUNNEL CREATION. If you don’t know what funnels are, I’ll have an article on that soon. But basically, it’s the bigger brother to a website. Funnels are landing pages that allow you to attract your audience by:

  • ads
  • integrate into your website
  • PPC

So, what did I do to get there?:

I strapped my brain together, and found different funnel platforms. When my mentor told me about an affiliate program called ClickFunnels, and how they had a “business in a box”, I was in for the spill. What I received for a 14 day free trial were:

  • a ready made business
  • access to many funnels
  • My supplement funnel!

The supplement funnel I needed to create a lasting way to make money selling supplements outside of my website was right there, one click away from downloading free and uploading to my funnel page.

So Here is the step-by-step way to do so by best maximizing your earning potential.

Step 1: Not only was I able to help promote the clickfunnels affiliate program, I was able to grow my business, and make money with the supplement I had. Learn more about your business in a box here.

Step 2: ATTENTION: Make sure to book this article, because after you get access, you can come back and get access to your free giveaway supplement funnel through here.

I want you to succeed, and this training truly works, and it’s free training!

    Hi, Michael!

    Very interesting to hear about your own experience about selling supplements online and get a going through the different ways to do it.

    I never been comfortable with spreading the word of mouth to my family and friends so that way is excluded for me.

    I really like the idea of affiliate marketing but have a question. Is there a risk that too many are promoting the same supplements online so you don’t have a chance of selling?

    Thanks for your training!

    Regards, Jan

    • Michael says:

      Hi Jan,

      Yeah, there are really more ways than one to go about it, and I started in the top points before I made my full way under affiliate marketing which just so happens to be my favorite method. I definitely hear you, I don’t mind spreading the word but I’d rather not.

      Great question. That can be a small factor, and I had these similar questions when I first got started. But really, it will come down to how well you can target your keywords, does your audience get familiar and comfortable with who you are, and that can really help out. I’ve seen it where people will find my article, bookmark it, and come back to it later, so that helps. Human behavior is a strange thing too,there are two types, those who will buy at any cost, and others with their research, so it can be more lucrative in a good way.

  • Olwethu says:

    This is a great article it covers everything on how to find and sell supplements my favourite part was the MLM system it’s my favourite because I don’t have to deal with inventory. Thanks for the enriching content Michael Granados.

    • Michael says:

      Hi Olwethu,

      I wanted to make it as easy to break down as I could. When I first started, I was lost, and I didn’t know where to start looking. By showing others, that takes away the guess work. The MLM system is a great way, and you’re right, no inventory. You are welcome!

  • Scarlett says:

    Thank you so much for this awesome article, supplements are a nessesity in today’s fast past world. I takes vitamin D3, B6, and a few other things for joint pain. So thanks for sharing you knowledge with others.

    • Michael says:

      Hi Scarlett,

      You are welcome! They definitely are, and it’s much more necessary now that we don’t always get the right amount of nutrients from eating. The good thing about supplements are that most are affordable and inexpensive, which makes them more valuable. Nice! That makes two of us. Than you for responding.

  • Sarah says:

    This is a superb and useful information which I am sure will help others who especially have experience and knowledge about nutrients and minerals and want to make money online. Great and useful article, great work, keep it up…looking forward for more reads from you.

    • Michael says:

      Hi Sarah,

      I think it would come in handy for many others wanting to test the online waters. It’s worked for me, and I believe it can work greatly for anyone else. Thank you!
