    (Alright, this is the original post I had trouble posting. I figured it out. Don't include .net, when referring to the ebid marketplace.) Just taking a moment to introduce myself. I am interested in online marketing. Just want to make the most of my laptop. I have sold on Ebay with good results, although I think the Ebay market is flooded with cheap Chinese merchandise. Trying Ebids, but no sales yet. Although I am creative, I don't have time to make stuff for Etsy. I would rather spend my time making money. I want to get into internet marketing. I am trying ClickBank and I want to try Commission Junction. Does anyone have any suggestions? My first attempt with ClickBank has been a dud. The product I tried to market, turns out they have a negative BBB record and are selling pirated materials. I don't want to have anything to do with selling poor products on the internet. I am concerned about how to avoid this on ClickBank, since my first effort turned out this way. The product I chose was listed #1 by popularity in the ClickBank market category. How do I avoid this pitfall. I have seen other people have great results with ClickBank.

    Welcome!

    To be honest, I have never had much success with CB, a few hundred bucks, that's about it and that took months to pull that off.

    If you want to start getting your feet wet with guaranteed money so that you can invest in bigger methods that take money up front, try what shaqsquash explained here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/23925-easiest-quickest-100-day-i-know.html

    I just put it to use and have had success with it. Super easy, and it's pretty much guaranteed cash.

    Keep in mind it takes about a week for them to approve your article, so while you're waiting, just keep doing more!

    Hey and welcome to the BHW forums. Sorry to hear that your first Clickbank campaign wasn't very successful! Just a small notice, a lot of products on Clickbank have a negative BBB record and most likely bad ratings on website reputation services like MyWOT. You will have a hard time finding one with a positive rating. If you would like to promote official brands though, I would go to CommissionJunction, but their commission rates aren't as high as on Clickbank. It's your choice! This is just advice.

    Man this is 5 years old method...why would u suggest him that?

    OP, try Clickbank + youtube (dont promote most popular products, do keyword research and choose product based on keyword with low competition and decent global search.

    Also...try Fiverr or SEO Clerks, whatever your skills are im sure you can pull out few bucks for kick start.
    Amazon Affiliates, tons of untapped niches waiting and there is huge possible profit for you

    Yes, i would suggest you to invest few bucks in keyword research tool, and you are good to go.

    Cheers

    [h=3](I'm not sure I want to try this. I don't want to be a spammer. I want to build legitimate online marketing skills.)

    Just because it's 5 years old, doesn't mean it still doesn't work...I suggested it, because I've been using it and seeing success. I was just trying to help bro.
