    Hi,

    I have been researching selling on clickbank for the past week or so. I've been reading as much as I can on the subject. There is some really useful stuff on here - love that $400 a week article marketing thread.

    Anyway, I have been trying to find a product which might be good for a newbie to sell. The product I have settled on appears to be perfect. However as a rank amateur I am probably missing something. I dont really want to give the name of the product (incase it is a real gem) and all the pro's steam in and grab all the commission!

    Anyway I would like to give the reasons that I used to select the product and see if anyone is kind enough to give me some feedback. Maybe you have some tests or tricks you use to decide if a product is worth promoting or not. Maybe the reasons I used are completely useless. Maybe I am missing a huge point.
    I am going to promote using a blog and articles. No PPC. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Anyway. The product:

    • has gravity over 30.
    • the main keywords show a very steep positive trend.
    • the main keywords have between 5,000 and 20,000 ****** monthly searches
    • some of the main keywords return only 30,000 or so pages when searched for as a "phrase"
    • some of the pages returned on page 1 of google are very weak. At kleast one was basically not in use/under development they just have the keywords in the URL
    • cost per click for the top keyword estimated at about 60 cents to get to ad position 1.78. I don't want to use PPC but it just shows to me the word is profitable/popular.
    To me it looks like the product could be good for a first timer like me. It seems the market is growing and it would be possible to get to page one. There doesn't seem to be huge competition and from the PPC price it seems it could be profitable.

    Do any of you have any feedback for me? Are my criteria wrong? Or am I missing something? Is there any other things I need to consider or tests I can run?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    weBay

    Honnestly, I think you're on the right track. Try doing a review site or mini-blog about the product and pre-sell it.

    Try it out with PPC. Forget adwords, try Bing, you'll have better ROI.

    Thanks for the reply. I am making a small website using blogger and a domain anme which I bought that contains the keywords I am targetting. Gonna try and put an email opt in for a few freebies on the front page.

    I didn't even know bing had a PPC programme! Will check it out.

    Thanks!
