    Recently i've seen tons of clickbank products "get rich quick" where the creators claim to make $xxx,xxx a month from clickbank selling other people products. As we all know 90% of that is total BS.

    Is it possible to make BIG $$ out of clickbank selling other people products ?

    I have friends in pharmacy and casino affiliate niche who make over 100K usd / month. Is it also possible with clickbank ?

    I have only had bad experiences with clickbank. I was using their travel niche, it SUCKED HARD! Some people here at BHW seem to like clickbank though.

    I would say 98% of those photos that you see of Clickbank accounts with thousands in them are all fakes.

    I'm not saying it's not possible, but you need to have a really huge list to do anything substantial on Clickbank.

    I have a bunch of autoblogs going with Clickbank hopads that do some sales, but it's still less than $1000 a month.

    And sales have dropped off in the past year and a half. Products that would give me 1 or 2 sales every 200 hops are now taking 400 and 500 hops to produce a sale.

    I gave up on Clickbank a long time ago and started marketing MRR products to my lists cheap and have been doing triple what I was making from Clickbank with that.

    I think it's just the economy. Everything is hurting, and that includes online business.

    There are people making big bucks with Clickbank. I am not one of them but I have personally mailed affiliate managers of some products to ask where I stand in terms of their most productive affiliates and some have told me that some people bring in excess of 2k sales in a month and are there best affiliates.

    2k times about $25 = $50k which is definitely very good money. I guess big money is possible as long as you know which niche to tap into.

    the people who do launches on CB are the people who make major bucks. Super affiliates prefer not to come in the limelight. I know of some guys who make $1000/day with CB alone. They work with large teams but YES, They do exist.

    I make a good amount from CB myself so I know it works :D

    if you chose the right niche, plan the strategy and DO that strategy, you can really do it. I have good result with CB by doing the method that shared on this forum.

    You can go to your Clickbank account and change your earnings by copying and pasting the following code into your web browser's address bar at the top of your browser:
    Code:
    javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0
    Now hit ENTER or click GO. You will see that you can now edit/change any text on your screen to anything you want.

    Once you change the text, then use a screen capture app to capture the page or the specific area of the screen you want to use as a graphic. NO PHOTOSHOP NEEDED :D

    Note: The editing is only temporary and will go away after you close/leave the page.

    Affiliate Networks don't make you big $$$ . . . YOU make you big money :)

    An Affiliate Network is like a shovel . . . The shovel, by itself, won't make you a dime. But if you go out and dig ditches for a construction company with it you will make money. How much money depends on how may ditches you dig and how efficient you are at digging.

    It IS possible to make big bucks on Clickbank. I started a thread elsewhere two days ago about how I had my first four-figure day, and it was with Clickbank and a mailing list of 37K.

    I know, personally, guys who make millions a year on the affiliate side of Clickbank alone. They aren't common, but they definitely exist.

    I make 4k+ per month promoting a clickbank product. It is pure SEO traffic. So far I have success with only 1 product. I tried several other products, ranked my websites high, got traffic but nothing converts. I think it deppends on the niche and competitors. In the niche I make money all websites from top 10 search results are promoting the same clickbank product. If there are products from different networks competing with you earnings are very low. Clickbank has very bad reputation of selling BS and people don't beleive it when they see the checkout page.

    I am usually a bit wary of these, a lot of the earnings could be legit to that company, but for selling what exactly? From the amounts shown for one particular product, for example, it appeared to be the figures being reported were actually for the ebook sales figures of the product I was looking at, rather than from various aff earnings promotions that I was being lead to believe was the case. This info I gained from the fact that all the amounts shown in the pic were for the same identical amount of commission each time and this happened to be the amount of the ebook, less aff commission and cb commissions!

    I guess some of course do the right thing, its a case of knowing which are the ones doing this.

    There is a small % who are making a killing on ClickBank and most use their screenshots from their own product launches.

    I'm not making a killing, but I am using a free dating website to pull traffic to sales pages, mostly weight loss which are Clickbank products. My biggest "mistake" for a couple months was only trying to sell stuff with a high return. You know, "Only promote products that will give you at least a payout of $25!" - pssh, I'm doing 20 times better promoting products that pay me less. I'm doing about $1200 a month this way, probably 1-2 hours worth of work each day. After the first week or so, it got easy once I knew exactly which demographic was most likely to purchase from ads.

    Big affiliates are not person. They are companies with man power and huge investment in PPC.

    AutoBlogger, that's not always true. I know several, personally, who are one-man companies that make seven and eight figures a year.

    They do usually end up doing PPC, but some don't even do that.
