Hi Bernard!

Yep there are definitely vendors in the health niche, and I would say that it is one of the more common niches that people specialize in. And its quite a thriving (though competitive) industry to be honest. There are a lot of affiliates for supplements, hair sprays, digital products and fitness courses haha

I know a couple of vendors active in this area, so do let me know if you're interested :)

Hi Riely I may be able to help with this :)

Overall looks good especially with the color scheme and the personal photo!

You may want to bring the form and the opt-in button to the centre of the page to break up the text and make it easier to read. Could also make the button bigger as the CTA doesn't really pop for now.

Could also change up some text colors to make the chunk at the top more readable. The subheadings could also be a bit smaller to make the H1 headings draw more attention.

Hope this helps!


If you're interested in testing your funnel, do let me know and I can send some MMO/internet marketing traffic over

Hi Charlotte

Thanks! haha

Sorry but I'm not sure how to provide access since Udimi is now super strict about any contact details given (no Facebook, email, links, basically anything Udimi related)

Hmmmm...

Hi Michael and Salvador,

I can give you guys access to around 50 free videos on affiliate marketing (knowledge is free so I feel it should be given freely. What the hell are these gurus doing lol).

You can PM if you're interested in the link but I think I'll just drop some tips here in case you aren't interested yet. So you'll need these main elements:

  • Squeeze Page

A Squeeze Page is a landing page that requests a visitor's email address to unlock special bonuses (called lead magnets). It could be a free E-book, a webinar series, or simply access to your selection of online income tools. After a subscriber opts into your email list you can pass this data through to your autoresponder, and start sending your email series to your new subscriber.

  • Traffic

We would need to get visitors to your squeeze page before you can start collecting email addresses. The most common way to build a list is by purchasing traffic from trusted vendors in the Solo Ads industry. Why? Because when it comes to list building, Solo Ads traffic is cheaper and more certain than running paid ads on social media or search engines.

  • Thank You Page & Link Walls

Now after running traffic to your squeeze page, you will see some opt-ins. These subscribers have provided their email addresses to you, and you can use that later. But for now, we can send your page visitors, subscribers or not, to a Thank You Page with some buttons. These buttons will link over to your customer's pages so that you can start delivering traffic immediately. This way, your visitors and subscribers can generate more clicks straight from the landing pages. We don't even have to send emails to them.

These are called Funnel Clicks = clicks that you got by running traffic through your opt-in funnel

  • Link Rotators

When you have all the buttons on your Thank You Page, it may be a pain to keep updating the page whenever we get a new customer, or want to change affiliate products. We may also find it hard to allocate exact number of clicks to each customer, according to what they paid for (e.g. 300 x 90% tier 1 clicks)

This is where the link rotator comes in. We can essentially use the same link on all of our buttons. When a visitor clicks on any button, the rotator will help us send that visitor to customers that still need clicks. Once a customer receives what is paid for, it switches over to the next customer automatically.

In fact, if a visitor clicks on the same button twice, they would be brought over to different customers, because the rotator remembers their IP address and what they have seen before.

  • Autoresponders
  • Emails

Autoresponders just help you send emails to your subscriber list. Your emails should motivate your readers to click, so you can send those clicks over to a customer. This part is pretty long and there's a lot to cover so I think I'll just end this here. I cover more in my FB group so if you want I can add you over as well :D


Hope this helps!

Hi Karen,

Just took a look at your website and I would recommend that you could make the call to action more prominent. The opt-in CTA links should pop the moment people see your page. This can work with your minimalist layout, but there must be a clear CTA like a button with a short intro copy on what they will get upon opting into your newsletter.

The image quality should improve, but if you are worried about page speed, you can try to compress the images while retaining resolution.

For your opt-in page, you may want to take the same style of your other pages in your website, because if a visitor hits a landing page that has a minimalist design, but is then directed over to the opt-in page that has a different colored background and very different button styles, they may think that it is a separate offer and close the window.

I hope this helps :)

If you have further questions, you can just drop me a message and we could get on a quick zoom call or something. I can introduce you to how our agency builds our funnels and autoresponder flows.

Hey John!

Welcome to Udimi :)

So for private messages, it is fine to maybe ask one or two vendors to clarify if they are able to provide you with the traffic you are looking for. However, do try to avoid sending too many messages / cold messaging as it is not common practice to do so. To post a public request, you can actually go to Forum > Want To Buy and post your request there. Quite a few vendors will be happy to provide you with quotations and info on their traffic.

For more info on how to find good vendors, or how to use the Udimi platform, you can go to the Help tab above or in this link - https://udimi.com/help/buyer/how-to-buy

It has tips on both buying and selling.

As for your questions on niches, funnel feedbacks etc, you can check the seller's profile as they usually state the characteristics of their traffic and offers there.

Hope this helps :)

If you do need more help on starting, or if you are interested in testing my traffic, you can always drop me a quick PM :)

Hi Nicholas,

I would say it depends on your niche. Health and wellness may do well with solo campaigns. I worked at an e-commerce firm that did look at Udimi for a while. Although they ultimately went with FB and search engine ads.

Ultimately, I would say the only way to find out is to test, test and keep testing.

I also do dropshipping and I would advise to stick to more traditional traffic sources for that because there are really more tools available there As a long term plan, if you are looking for thousands of fresh clicks and the ability to really test ads, manage your audiences and do retargeting campaigns with different ads, I would really recommend that you go with other traffic sources. I personally have not tried Udimi for my own store, but thats a separate issue of niches.


Hope this helps :) If you have any questions do reach out to me on Facebook / Udimi haha

Hi! Welcome to Udimi :)

Udimi actually has quite a bit of content to guide you along on how to work with solo ads. You can just visit the Help section for the tutorials :)

As for the tools and resources you would need in solo ads and affiliate marketing here are the 4 main elements you would need to get started

  1. Traffic - visitors (we call them unique clicks) to your website
  2. Website with squeeze page and thank you page. This helps you collect email addresses so you can keep marketing offers to them
  3. Autoresponder - to send out emails to thousands of people automatically
  4. Rotator - to analyse your traffic and send accurate numbers of visitors to other websites to help you earn money


If you need recommendations on which platforms to use, I can recommend some haha.

There's also a FB group with video tutorials and access to early launches

Hope this helps :)

Definitely. Just create an opt-in page and make sure the buttons and subscriber lists are all connected. Then you can just paste the url into Udimi when buying traffic.

Udimi does the tracking for you in terms of countries, blocked clicks etc, but if you want more insight on conversions and engagements, you can connect the landing page to a link/rotator manager first, and pasting the tracking link into Udimi when buying traffic.

I personally use Qliker to track and direct my traffic. Here's a link if you're interested.

Sure haha!

Upsells and downsells could work. Just be aware of whether they are congruent with you lead magnet and offer.

Hope this helps :)

Hi! Welcome to Udimi!

So there are quite a few ways people get traffic. The quick way to classify them would be paid and organic traffic:

Main forms of paid traffic:

  1. Social Media Ads - Facebook ads, Pinterest ads , LinkedIn ads etc. Normally FB ads. Do a bit of research on this cos gotta get the audience and set-up right or you'll just burn your budget
  2. Search Engine Ads - Google Ads/Bing Ads - Depends on your offer, average order value and conversion rates, could be quite expensive. What these ads do is place your website directly on top of Google when someone searches specific keywords.
  3. Solo Ads - You can purchase them here on Udimi, check out some vendor's websites, or chat some of us up on Facebook groups (marketplace groups where people sell traffic). Solo Ads can be cheaper and the niches are quite compatible.


Main forms of organic traffic:

  1. Search Engine Optimization - Play around with websites, meta text, titles, code to get ranked higher on Google/Bing when people search certain things. Its free but may take some work.
  2. Social Media - Comment, post and get your presence out online through usual social media tools. There's a facebook group with training videos that are pretty helpful for this. Here's the link: https://bit.ly/traffic-dominators-fb
  3. Content - So this is the more heavy side of things with long blog posts and youtube videos. It does work because you are giving a lot of value, but sometimes people aren't in this to read through long blog posts and they dont click on your links. I have been experimenting with Youtube and am seeing some results so... I guess it works? I have been following this guide so if you are interested - https://bit.ly/youtube-trafficd
  4. Messenger marketing - This one takes some time to set up the flows and automatic replies but I am seeing pretty good conversion rates :)


Hope this helps :) If you have any questions feel free to message me or connect with me on FB haha. We could do a call if you are interested as well!

If you wanna read more I actually have a free E-book going on specifically on sources of traffic.

Hi Lau,

Welcome to the community!

I would say approach 2 works better. But maybe instead of considering it a lead magnet, the priority would be to add value. If you can help your subscribers learn something or get better returns, then that'll be the best.

Yep. Developing a personal relationship with your subscribers would also go a long way in retention so do remember to engage your audience :)

Hope this helps!

But if you ever need more help or just want to chat, just drop me a PM. (Or contact me on Facebook haha)
