    Ive sepnt hours scouting for good money making programs on clickbank only to find out its filled with useless ebooks that WONT sell.. Why do people even mention ClickBank when talkin about good affiliate programs?? From my experience there is nothing good about it. Am i the only one who feels this way?? If not you are more than welcome to sound off and share your success story with us using clickbank.. no im not asking for your method or product as i already have 2 campaigns yielding 2k monthly so far but im just curious to know if clickbank is worth it....

    Sorry mods, if this is not the right section please move it to clickbank.. I didnt want to double post making it seem like im some noob spammer.

    clickbank is good to sell your product ;-)
    I like those tutorials about promoting CB that advise future affiliates to buy the ebooks themselves to promote them in good will

    It depends on the products you're promoting really.

    Promoting eBooks is harder then CPA or most other affiliate marketing because it cost more for the buyer, which means you'll have less sales.

    On top of that, the economy is still bad, summer is a slow period for online sales, and CB tracking system is crap.

    I agree, CB is a good place to sell your eBooks.. but can be hit or miss when you're an affiliate.

    ClickBank has been a steady earner for me for about 2 years now. You need to approach it differently than say CPA though. I do a lot of article marketing and yahoo answers and it works great. I only have about 120 ezine articles up total (from 2 years ago to now) and it yields me about $500 a month. I haven't even put up a new one in over 5-6 months now. I do a little yahoo answers posting from time to time on new products for another couple hundred a month.

    Just something to look at: pick wisely. Forex products = 100% refund over time generally speaking. I do very well with products like earth4energy that offer good info, although not quite as advertised, and good support from the publisher. Norb's products - minus the forex ones - also sell very well for me.

    I agree that the ebook thing seems to be yesterdays thing. But, there are people still making some coin from it. Probably not as much as before, but it's just another way of making a least a little bank.

    I have been prmoting cb products for as long as i can remember, made a few hundred $$ in maybe the last 5 years but nothing to get excited with. I am now a Amazon and CJ fan, especially Amazon are very proffesional and the got really huge products range.
    CJ on the other hand is o.k but i am getting really pissed off with them suspending suppliers and then reinstaing them 1 or 2 days later, which mean i have to recreate all the freakin links as they also change ( i think).

    What i hate most about Cilickbank is there dumb payment policy of only issueing checks ( cheques) to foreign affiliates. Since i live in Asia in a developing country depositing a US $ check is a real freakin nightmare, why CB cant pay thru paypal or direct bank transfer is beyond me.

    Alot of people who are making a killing on clickbank will read this thread and just smile...
    You will find all the info on this forum to be succesfull on clickbank.
    To boost your conversions you could try a presell landing page. A blog for example where "laura" tells her weight loss / acne etc story and how *clickbank product* solved it.
    I personally always like to collect visitors email before sending them to the landing page of the clickbank product. You can use those targeted emails to promote related products or cpa later and boost your income even more.

    I have made a few sales from CB from not even trying. I posted on some forums and forgot about it then later I had sales.

    Never post the real affiliate link you must cloak it, I dont just mean the link to the site I mean you must also cloak your ?hop= at the end too because people dont like to see the ?hop=yournamehere.

    If you cloak the links right and advertise a good product then you should make sales.
    I have a friend who makes a good amount from CB so it still does work, I guess just find a better product. One that dont stink of scam.

    I make $100 a day from clickbank on average, some days as much as $200 some days less than $50 it varies alot and what is weird that every so often I get a couple of days when I make no money at all but my traffic is staying constant.

    I have none of my own products I just affiliate market only in the health market. I get refunds but not many. Not as many as I used to get in the downloads market, which I no longer promote (no longer on Clickbank).

    I get my traffic from articles, yahoo answers, and my own blog network that is building up slowly. which all the hosting is being cover by adsense earnings.

    So you can make money of clickbank, I have a nice part time income of around $30,000 a year all from clickbank

    Y'know... the OP is right, CB is shit and no one ought to ever promote anything from there. There is absloutely ZERO money to be made from it.

    Is Clickbank worth it? This is from a today.

    [​IMG]

    Hehe they also had a power outage today. Coincidence? On average I manage to convert about 5 to 50 out of 5k hops and i usually get about 5k hops a day.
