    For me Amazon over Clickbank.

    People trust Amazon, if you can get traffic to your site you can get sales.

    Amazon has been good to me... real good.

    click bank.... has just not produced for me...

    like someone said.... amazon is a trusted site.... so much easier to sell to people.

    +1 for Amazon.

    CB sites end up being too "direct marketing" style (a.k.a "spammy") :). 90% of them are junk products with even junkier sales pages and horrible graphics and such.

    CB is certainly a big no-no for IM-related products, as it's so easy to steal commissions by figuring out the hop link and replacing it with your own CB aff link. So I have totally stopped promoting IM products that are sold through CB. Maybe ok for mom-and-pop, non-IM niches.

    Sure, Amazon pays a lot less, but has a very high trust factor too - certainly easier to convert your clicks. Plus lots of peer reviews and social proof right on the site. Amazon takes care of converting them.

    Hope this helps.
