One of my newest sites has seen a huge spike in affiliate commissions in the last 30 days, yet the traffic to the website hasn't really grown in proportion to the sales. The traffic just remains a steady 40-60 visitors per day on average.

My thoughts are that maybe since it is in the health and wellness niche, people are buying the products because of the 'new year-new me' craze that happens every year.

Does anyone have experience with the health and wellness niche, and could confirm whether or not that's likely the case?

A free tool you can use to check this out is trends.google.com.

If you are just new to this niche, is it your real passion? Passion is very important because you will be working on this site hopefully for several years. Know and experience also help though there are not requirements.

I got into this niche to help my buddy. Health and Wellness isn't necessarily my direct passion, but it's growing on me as I learn more about it.

It goes to show that if you know how to bring a product to the market, and the opportunity is there, passion can come later.

Yes, that is true.

Make sure you define your targeted audience. Your site will rank better if you thoroughly provide more helpful information than your competitors. Search engines like it when visitors find many articles address your niche idea. That way they don't need to toto other sites and your site becomes known as an authority site..

Hi

I believe it stands out to knowing your target audience and their shopping craze if you want to call it.

Could be seasonal or not, I keep an eye on my stats going forward.

Thank you for sharing your progress and super congrats.

Hi Lara, I decided to get into the niche about 6 months ago and didn't really know anything about it. I'm steadily learning about this niche one day at a time. Everything is new to me except the skills I picked up here at Wealthy Affiliate. :)

The 'new year-new me' craze could definitely be the reason why you are seeing a spike in sales if your traffic is the same as before.

More sales are always good news so congratulations and keep up the good work!
