    I recently put a product up on clickbank and started promoting it to my list. The conversion rate for traffic through my list is 5%. But I don't have anyone in Clickbank signing up as an affiliate for my product.

    Why?

    1) Even if you have 10% conversion rate, are you "easily findable" in clickbank? (^Gravity, ^ $average sale, etc.)

    2) 5% through your list is VERY ok. What is it for cold traffic is what matters.

    3) Are you in a popular niche? If you have a product that can "scratch your ass automatically while you drive", I don't think there are many affiliate searching for it actively...

    4) Selling a product through Clickbank DOES NOT guarantee even a single affiliate. It's what YOU do to get affiliates is what matters. 99% of the "affiliates" on CB are simply mooching off the popularity of the vendor with "product name" and "product name review" rankings.

    So tell us more and maybe someone can help...

    Thanks for the detailed reply.

    1. How do I improve gravity? Currently the average sale price is $97. Is that too low? Should I raise it?

    2. I haven't tested it with cold traffic. I drive all my cold traffic to my list. I signed up to Clickbank because I thought others would do the cold traffic test for me.

    3. The niche is stock trading. I don't think it's very popular as a niche, as I can often find things like "business opportunity" or "forex" but not investing or stocks.

    4. So what would you say is a good gameplan? I'm about to give up on Clickbank and just stick with what I'm doing now.

    Thanks again; added a "thanks" to you.

    There are many factors, 5% is not a Big Deal.

    What do you mean? I'm currently in the process of moving it to Udemy. The main reason I wanted Clickbank was because I don't have the time to marketing, while I do have the time to create more courses.

    Good idea? What about all the people asking for PMs? Should I reply?

    I've left you a thanks.

    The problem is that you are not actively pushing the product to affiliates. You've posted
    three times in this thread without even mentioning the title of your product, so that potential
    affiliates that are reading this, could actually check it out, and begin promoting it. You need
    to get some affiliates to promote your product first, and then Clickbank can get the ball rolling.

    Meh, creating your own affiliate network directory and making money from referrals is the way to go, do your own due dilligence

    Awesome encouraging reply to what sounds like a truly genuine guy asking for help!

    @verial
    1) Nobody is going to test cold traffic FOR you... why would they? Would you test someone else's offer with YOUR money? Never on planet sanity.

    2) To attract affiliates, you need to know your numbers like the back of your hand. For e.g. if you would approach me to promote (assuming I am a bigtime affiliate in your niche), I would ask you questions like:

    i) What's your EPC (that's earnings per click)?
    ii) Give me your conversion data, for cold traffic, referral traffic...
    iii) Whats the average commission per sale?
    iv) If affiliates dont make the sale in the first visit, do we get credit later? Do you preserve the affiliate cookie in your newsletters?

    So to answer these questions, you need to know your exact numbers.

    Once you have your numbers, check who's getting/driving the most traffic in your niche and contact them. (people ranking through SEO, current sellers with lists who can cross-sell, influencers in your niche)... Follow them if they are on social and get to know them for a few days first before introducing your product.

    It's tough initially, sure, but once you can get the ball rolling with a few affiliates, it's a 'viral' effect then...
