    Hi,

    Not at all, most people are used to paying full price for products.

    Free trial is not the only way to do business.

    For a long time imo. There are still plenty of marketers making massive bank from clickbank. On top of that they allow affiliates from third world country & countries where the dollar is strong, while most CPA networks reject these people due to being 'high risk' or other unspecified reasons.

    Not really. Maybe sales ages, i have seen some pretty shoddy ones on clickbank before. But the products pushed on clickbank are generally pretty from those running on any CPA Network.

    Not to mention clickbank is just a "PPS" network. Plenty of others out there...

    Clickbank will keep doing fine.
    CPA will eventually dry up (Sorry guys).

    I'll laugh that after 5-10 years, I find this post when Internet ads are near worthless.
    Just like the time someguy on some forum posted that 3D Realms would dry up and Duke Nukem Forever would never come out... BEFORE Duke Nukem Forever was announced.

    Clickbank is not going anywhere. The worst case scenario, they will evolve.

    Clickbank will be here always as long as people want to sell their crappy ebooks.

    Clickbank will be here for years to come. Their business model is really pretty efficient, not too much overhead, they don't pay out unless sales occur, etc, even with high refund rates. There will always be a market for digital products, even if 3 out of 4 are crap.

    CB is still strong. Yes, there's a ton of junk there but there are also a lot of products that sell great. As always, it comes down to niche.

    I'm working on a couple of ebooks too and was wondering whether I should even bother to list it there.

    They're in smaller niches and don't stand a very good chance of getting the attention of the high gravity seekers.
