    Hey guys,
    The aim of this thread is to collect answers from Clickbank marketers about promoting Clickbank products in 2016!
    I saw that Clickbank has no more new products, and all the ebooks, guides, softwares are cracked and downloadable for free!
    Also the quality of these products is very low, people ain't buying this anymore as i can see,
    i did some clickbank marketing couple of years ago, and i made some good money, not big numbers but ut was enough for me to get what i want.
    What about you? Do you still use clickbank? Still promoting offers? Still making money or the numbers are getting low?
    Share with us!

    Lol. So you think that people who look for a love spell or how to survive a zombie attack and/or using actually frigging Bing to search would actually know how to download an e-book from a cracked site?

    I had the same feelings about Clickbank as you are.
    But then I visited US and saw the commercials on local TV - they look like your average Clickbank product, and apparently they work best on the target audience.

    Clickbank is alive and kicking of course. Check out the threads here. Mancar's product seems to have done quite nicely for itself, and he has stated some affiliates have made K's off the back of it. That's just one product. Clickbank is a marketplace. Your post is a little bit like saying, hey guys is a clothes shop dead in 2016, people can just go and buy fakes or stolen clothes. Tonnes of people wouldn't buy fakes or stolen goods even if they could, let alone those that don't know how to.

    It comes down to finding a good product. Establishing a route to connecting that product with people that want it. Adding value with your promotions.

    More or less the same formula for affiliates and sellers i would say.

    I would disagree with you OP. There are many products that have been performing really well for people and they are good quality product. As far as Inclusion of new products is concerned, have a look at "Organifi". It is another awesome clickbank product launch that has hit the roofs. You just need to find good products out of a pool of mixed quality products.

    Not everyone knows you can get them for free.

    And the products looks they way they look because they target a certain type of people.

    It works, that's why every clickbank product does it.

    I don´t mind showing this screenshot I just took from my remaining clickbank account:

    [​IMG]

    Some years ago, that traffic used to be $$$ per week . Now it makes me almost nothing. It´s all social traffic.

    Selling CB stuff now requires quality/very targeted traffic.

    Not all the products work. There are thousands of them with a 0 gravity on the marketplace . But I do agree with you that you have to sell them to the proper audience.

    Edit to answer OP´s main topic:
    In my particular case, I have moved my business to CPA , which works fine with social traffic. I used to have friends here on the forum that gave up IM when their CB earnings started to go down. I have some spare time now to try new methods and see If I can do a final go with CB, but I know the best days are gone. I know people here on the forum who are now making decent on CB , but they all have good sites ranking for good keywords or a bunch of micro- sites ranking for many long tails. I never have been into SEO, I guess I don´t have patience to wait for months to see the money roll-in in the best of cases.

    Sales dropped so sharp at the beginning of 2016 really don't know the real reason
    I used to make about 4 -5,sales per 1000 hope now
    It become 0-1 per 1000 hope
    Actually I'm thinking yo go for another network
    That's disappointing

    2016 has been terrible with Clickbank sales. Thinking of moving to CJ.

    Hi Zac Hachez, I told you the reason on your own thread. You were doing good during January as your buyers were searching a bodybuilding topic for the new year resolutions. Don´t take that traffic anywhere else because you are not going to find better conversions at any other network. Even If you move it to a CPA company, you will see only 2 - 10 bucks / lead, so at the end CB will make you more money.

    Just find other sources of traffic to diversify your income. Don´t just rely on 1 single traffic source / 1 network.

    That's pretty much with any method that requires traffic, you need targeted traffic to make good money.

    Yeah easier said than done, "find other sources of traffic or diversify" cos there is lots of products on CB that are crap! I've been trying out some new products that I thought would be sellers but they seems to have very low conversion rates! However, since they have implemented the trust badges I've seen sales increase on my products that sell well!!

    Who said it was easy ? we all know the try/fail process takes time. But it´s the only way to stay alive as a marketer in the long run. If it was easy , then everyone would be making enough money online and not working on a 9 - 5 job . Check the forum itself , or just the members posting in this section. I would say that 80% of the clickbankers who were here 2-3 years ago are now gone. Also I didn´t mean to keep just CB as the unique income stream. In my own case, CB is now in the last position of the queue as my income source, cause I found new things a new traffic methods that work better for me. However, I still keep an eye on it.

    My suggestion was : "Don´t put all your eggs in the same basket".

    Yes I agree, most ppl I knew that did affiliate marketing are now trying other stuff as google has made things much harder for us! I think you need to be creative and be on the look out for new opportunities to get unique traffic!

    Focus targeted traffic for promoting CB products. For conversion rate, it is better than raw traffic.
