Keto Wars 2019 Affiliates beware of fasting and keto programs, the chop is coming
2019 has kicked off in the health niche with a war on keto, and the keto proponents some of whose protein powders and books you see in this image seem to be amping up the volume in retaliation but don't be fooled by the loud noise they are making at the moment nor by the lucrative commissions on offer eg by David Jockers in his Fasting summit with the HTO platform because the health niche is divided with many doctors and researchers and patient testimonies coming out against keto now, many people have died or wrecked their metabolism and health.
David Jockers | irresponsible doctorpreneur?
David Jockers spent all last summit year saying how little his wife ate during pregnancy and after it to get in shape, her fasting lifestyle being suggested to other women 'to get in shape', and even here at WA we had Sandy attest to the death of a postpartum woman on keto. You think that is a coincidence that woman tried to eat like David Jocker's wife? Hell no, and don't get sucked into it as an affiliate marketer or health blogger when they eventually shut that guy up you do not want to be silenced alongside him.
It's only digital marketing has people like David Jockers and keto so prominent at the moment - but a huge lashback is building like a tsunami out there.
I've also noticed and called on him in the summits to reference his sources properly, it's plagiarism when you quote the work of others to make it look like your own - that is why people think he is good, they don't know when he is quoting someone else, and then he slips in some fad of his own and people are swallowing it whole. THAT is also how some of these guys have bloated out the size of their sites...his results won't be measured in monetary terms ulitmately but the fear of food, destruction and death out there caused by his positioning.
Saying No to Keto
The cover picture for my blog here was released this week by Chris Wark, as in Chris Beat Cancer - I'm no propenent of Chris, I'm not a vegan and I'm not religious the way he is, but he came out with an expose on keto from 'the research'. And by the end of 2018 the health niche was beginning to explode with angry practitioners and doctors against keto, at that time they were the minority voice being heard but in the wake of so much destruction out there that voice will be heard clearly in 2019, keto is going to get its assed kicked, you don't want yours kicked with it!
The Truth About The Truth About!
Disappointing to see the buddies and inner circles close ranks this week with Ty & Charlene of TTAC the truth about cancer affiliate program take sides with Josh Axe who has invested huge money in his own keto line of supplements - but that is the bottom line, he is a multimillion dollar doctorpreneur with millions invested in his new keto range and Ty boasts about being the highest paying affliate program out there paying out several millions each year - you think any of this is about 'truth'? To make it worse these guys never stop quoting either 'the research' or 'the scripture'! But 'Health Experts Academy', with a surprisingly similar sounding name to Brendon Burchards 'Experts Academy' named Josh Axe as a top multimillion dollar earner along with Dr. Eric Zielinksi as it enticed other doctors to become 'doctorpreneurs' with their training!
And how sad that good people with a good message are getting sucked into all this, you with your blogs, others in natural healing and practitioners and doctors with good protocols for cancer, but listen out to the protests:
- The Truth About Food is a book being written by David Katz exposing fads like keto, he is also hitting out at bloggers for not writing accurate content!
-The entire iThrive affiliate docuseries exposed keto
- my previous blog on keto listed a number of other voices deconstructing keto and fasting fads eg Dr Alan Christianson, Naveen Jain, Joel Furhman, add to that many others eg Joel Kahn https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/mozmary/blog/why-im-not-prom...
... many many things happening and coming along in 2019 to shake the dominant marketing position that keto held in 2018, get ahead of the game.
Will the health summits go down with keto?
Well we are all fed up with doctorpreneurs, there's a brilliant article by Evan Alden in the Elephant Journal about how much she got messed around by all the summit speakers when she took them on as pracitioners in her own health journey. The summit model was invented by Brendon Burchard style marketing, they offer you $29.50 to say what they want you to say, they take your traffic, the doctors get so rich they launch their own line of supplements - you can't even make commissions on anything now!
The Future of Summit Affiliate Programs
- If you were promoting them without being able to comment on the contents, and they sort of encourage that with their 'swipe copy' and humongous email lists all shooting the same fish in the same barrel, then that was never the model encouraged at WA and when they go down you'll be left with nothing.
- If you know how to engage the content and criticize it then you can work them to your advantage, if you know your niche and are not dependent on them. But if you have a conscience you will show your audience the fads and fallacies and the nuggets that sometimes are buried in there.
Up till now I had been happy to share nuggets and guide people away from the dangers, but the thing has tipped in favor of too many bad things vs anything worthwhile, the doctorpreneurs have amped up their greed. We are all fed up with the same speakers saying the same contradictory things over and over.
Why is it the same speakers at every summit no matter what the topic?
Bottom line, digital marketing- belonging to the same mastermind group - Brendon Burchard and deviations from that initial model. The doctorpreneurs unfortunately are at a point of doing a lot of harm, I'd encourage you to resist the commissions and never copy or promote content you don't understand, don't use 'swipe copy' ie don't be told what to say for a fee, you are capable of better things.
Interesting times ahead in the health niche. Let's hope for a better and safer audience centered 2019, ie good content ;)
