    I need your opinion black hatters!
    Ok i have a product listed on Clickbank, and its been over a month now and all i have is one sale.
    Now since The popularity of a product on clickbank is based almost entirely on sales made, i was wondering if purchasing my own product would bump up the popularity. It is my product anyway, so the funds will still come back to me. I will consider the % that clickbank takes as promotion costs.
    Any opinions?
    Thanks.

    You could give to your friends so they buy it :)

    If you need help with that I'd gladly help you.

    I think it'd work

    I've never heard of any one doing this. But I wouldn't buy it with the same CC each time. Maybe try some virtual credit cards etc.

    Also, are you only getting 1 sale because you haven't gotten any traffic? Maybe you're not getting any sales because the page doesn't convert?

    May I also suggest building an affiliate support site to entire affiliates to pick your program over competitors (if you haven't done so already). I know I'm more prone to pick a program that gives me promotional materials to work with.

    Does your product have a decent affiliate section? Do you have pre-written ready to go emails and followup emails? This is absolutely vital to have any sort of success. I just had a guy come along and pick up both my emails in my affiliate section and he blasted them to his list. He sold 60 copies in two days.

    What niche is your product? Maybe I can send out a blast for you ;)

    I recall J0hn R3ese mentioning this in a 'you didn't hear it from me' sort of way in TS1. That was years ago however.

    I guess while you're at it, you'd be testing cl1ckbank's tracking ability or their honestly.

    I imagine you'd have to do it many times however to make a difference as to your product's placement on cl1ckbank.

    GuyS Thankyou so much for your inputs! And NCMEDIA, Your info is off the hook! I just have to figure out how to implement the idea. How many sales do you think i would need to bump up the gravity? Guess.

    im sure its possible but you'd have to do it a shit load of times before you would the gravity your most likely looking for and im sure using the same credit card everytime would throw up a red flag. i guess it would be possibe to use visa gift card or virtual credit cards to do it.

    Dude, just do this:

    Create a special payment link and set the price at $1.
    Then buy it through an affiliate's hoplink.
    And yes, use different Credit Card numbers or VCC to purchase it.
