    Finally made my first sale on Clickbank. 22 dollars. I had 210 hops to get 1 sale. It comes out to .11 cents a click. Not bad I guess. It didn't take that long actually and I got all my traffic from Legit CL ads. I used only one account and just posted in a different city each time about 4 0r 5 days apart and it was after the third post that I made this sale.

    Now I need to scale up on CL.

    Keep the faith!

    Good to hear. Might try some different offers as well with a higher conversion rate. Although honestly they are pretty difficult to find, and your conversion rate is actually better than most.

    Keep it up!

    Yeah that's not too shabby for your first sale. It's a great feeling when you make your first sale! Keep working at it and mix up the offers and you will find a strategy that works for you. Congratulations!

    Do CL allow such links? A lot of my posts gets flagged and removed even before I have a chance!

    Congratulations. Keep increasing that $$ or CB will steal your money after a certain time of non-activity. :(

    I am an affiliate. I only advertised one ad in two cities and got one sale. I'm in the process of making a similar site and am also going to try a cl posting service. He quoted me 2 dollars per ad. I am providing the ads and links. I posted again in the same two cities today and the cl service posted for me in two other cities as a sample.

    The first ad went up this morning, the second this afternoon and the third and fourth this evening around 5. As of midnight I had 185 uniques with 50 hops. no sales.

    No flagging yet. I link to my site I built and I made it look really corporate like so far not flags.

    I did get ghosting but through trial and error I think I nailed it down to content. I was using one word over and over and I changed that and rewrote everything and finally go them to stick.

    I had actually taken a break after the first two ads because everything was being ghosted. But then I read a post on here about testing and troubleshooting so I decided to start eliminating words, and changing elements until I found one that stuck.

    I'll keep you all posted thanks for the encouragement.

    Ok so here we are, its however long since my first post. I did two more CL ads in the same cities as the first which would be my second week I guess.

    so, first week I put up two CL ads and got around 200 hops and sold 1 made 22.00

    second week, I put up two CL ads in same city maybe only 100 hits and no sale in addition I had someone list in two other cities but they only lasted 24hrs. Altogether I got less than 200 and no sale.

    In the end of 3rd week and begininng of 4th I am going to post 50 ads. I only expect them to be up for 24 hours. We shall see how it goes. I will definetly keep the updates coming.

    thanks for the info- I have been thinking about putting some clickbank links on cl
    -I was going to keep it simple- put link in cl ad to wp site and have link for cb offer in wp site-
    I can always rotate the wp links- and dish out about 10-15 ads
    I'll give it shot-

    I think you need to check alot of variables. you can't list an affiliate link, you have to make it look official.

    @Mihai Did you promote a free download product? Cause it seems, your visitors went all through the process, but it didn't cost them anything.
