The first thing I ever tried was micro niche blogs. I picked a niche and got to number one on google for the keywords I wanted. It turned out to be a bad pick at niches. It never really paid off. I ended up scrapping the site to make autoblog. I also have autoblogs and they make very little as I am only monetizing with adbrite. My money maker has been Clickbank. My first month of stats for clickbank have 0 dollars earned. But within the last month I've made 111.37 dollars. I only have 1 Clickbank site making sales. I managed to make 4 dollars with selling a product through another site but altogether the rest of the money came from 1 clickbank product. Now I am seeing what if I have 10? So very happy with clickbank. If you are wondering how I make my sales you must be a junior vip member. Unfourtunately my method is one of those that you cannot read about in the free forum. I will just say this. If you are on the fence about wether Clickbank is legit or if you haven't made any sales yet, don't give up. You will find a way. I will tell you that I have a site that looks like a corporate site and it doesn't look like im selling clickbank. Also, alot of clickbank products can do well just by offline marketing. Put some signs on power poles, or put some signs on the corner. Get some stickers made and put them out there. Ok Peace.
