    Hi guys, i've been a lurker for a while, so i thought id contribute instead of just leeching.

    This is how i make a bit of money when i need it.

    It's simple, but can be time consuming (i know you guys dont like that! :p)

    And it's effectiveness varys greatly, i kinda enjoy doing it tho, so it dosnt feel like im slaving away.

    Heres what i do:

    1)Make a few Yahoo Answers accounts
    2)Have Click Bank open
    3)Look around the questions people are asking (I find the Health catagory works best)
    4)Find a question --> Search Clickbank for a related product
    5)Find a related product to the question, get your link and post a reply with your link.

    Try and make your reply sound serious, if someone says like "Help im pissing blood!" find something about blood and basically say "Buy this or you will die"

    Obviously dont put it that bluntly, but a little scare tactic into panic buying never hurt anybody.... or maby it did but im a heartless bastard and i dont care.

    Have fun!

    Oh and this is my first thread, so if it's in the wrong place or i've done anything wrong just let me know and i'll learn for next time. :)

    this sometimes works but can be alot of time for something that somebody might not buy.... especially with the health niche when clickbank i think is all ebooks.... but its the right idea

    use cj and cb together then your onto a winner :D

    but is time consuming thats for sure

    I've done this too, when bored. It works, but is much to time consuming. In fact, I still get sales from answers I created long ago. I did get some Yahoo Answers profiles cancelled on me, and I figure that was because someone complained.

    I do it differently. I look for good selling items on clickbank first, then I search for unanswered questions that that product would help with, and answer away. I'll even create one detailed response and paste it into 50 answers.

    It does work.

    adding CJ or some other affiliate program into the mix is a good twist. This is a time consuming venture, but can be effective. Can also be effective if you sprinkle in your actual url from time to time. But, do not do too much or your URL could get filtered out.

    There is also some software out there that will automate posting to answers for you or alert you when new questions are asked. You may just want to look around on the board for it. There is answersniper and *********.

    yes this can be a time consuming method, but then on the other hand, it does work and can make you sales.

    i have also used this method, but i find that using backwards(finding hot sellers and then looking for questions to answer) works the best.

    also using CJ or another affiliate program does work better than just using CB.

    a really hot niche to go after is the movie downloads niche. everytime a new movie is about to be released(especially really BIG movies), there are a bunch of people asking "where can I download this movie?"

    if you answer their questions with a straight affiliate link, your conversions may be lower, but some will buy. it works even better if you give them a link to a free movie download site that has a lot of poor quality movies. just say something like "you can check here to see if they have it, but the quality on these free download sites is pretty poor. if you want DVD quality downloads, check out this site (INSERT AFF LINK).

    this niche also convert really well if you have a review type blog to send them to pre-sell them to the idea of a paid movie download site.:D

    I tried doing this about a year ago and YA wouldn't let me post links. I'll give it another try. Also, do you guys even bother cloaking your AF links or do you just post the whole CB link?
