I receive a couple emails or comments a week from people trying to find out about the P90X affiliate program. People look all day for some place to sign up but just can’t find it. And the reason is because there is no P90X affiliate program.
Beachbody wanted to do something different from a traditional affiliate program where you put banners on your health or fitness related website and earn money when people click on those and buy something.
What they came up with is the Beachbody Coach opportunity.
What Is It?
Straight up, it’s a Multi Level Marketing (MLM) or sometimes called Network Marketing program. So what are you thinking right now? Everything you’ve ever heard about MLM’s is bad, right? They are pyramid schemes and people get ripped off, right? It’s a scam, right?
The problem is most people who get involved in those fail because they were expecting to make a quick buck and never put in the effort. It’s the truth. If you don’t treat it like a business then it will never become a business.
Its Sort Of A Affiliate Program
Beachbody, the company that makes P90X, set up the Beachbody Coach business opportunity because thousands of people who used their products achieved awesome results. Friends, family, and co-workers would notice their results and ask them what they are doing.
The person would refer them to Beachbody. People started calling in to Beachbody asking if they had a P90X affiliate program as so many people were sending business to them.
Beachbody took it one step further and created the coach opportunity to make a “P90X business” and not just an affiliate program.
Beachbody decided to reward those people who treat it like a business and let them keep their customers. It’s no secret that P90X works. Why would you ever want to join an affiliate program for a one and done commission payment when you can build a business and get paid multiple times from the same person?
Here comes the news you probably did not want to hear. It costs money to join!!
There’s a $39 sign up fee to start and a $15 fee every 5 weeks which covers order fulfilment, customer service, shipping, warehousing, and any other admin thing you don’t want to do. No inventory either.
It also covers the $70 MILLION in advertising Beachbody is spending a year branding their products. You get to “piggy back” off of it as everybody has heard of their products.
Its Better Than A P90X Affiliate Program
To be honest, Beachbody actually has an affiliate program with CJ.com. You can promote Beachbody products like P90X and earn 10% on each sale. A very traditional way.
What’s different with the Beachbody Coach route is you earn 25% on each sale plus you get to keep the customer name. This is huge as many people come back to buy nutritional products like Shakeology giving you future commissions from the same customer.
You can see how much more profitable it is to go this route over the traditional affiliate program. The sign up and monthly fee are peanuts in the long run.
Network Marketing Only If You Want To
You are not required to sponsor new people or get into the network marketing side of promoting P90X. Go right ahead and promote the products only if you want. Maybe some of your customers will want to sign up on their own in the future.
If you see the value in starting a “P90X Business” over being a P90X affiliate then I want you to know that I am here to help.
If you currently run a health/fitness website, are looking for a work from home business, or looking for a way to promote some great health products and make some money then being a Beachbody Coach is the way to go.
