    Well, the well has run dry for me. I'm not sure how else to promote Clickbank products any more. I haven't made a sale in 5 weeks, and my YouTube+Clickbank method that initially worked for me (I managed to get 10,000 unique views in a week just by telling other people on YouTube to "check out my videos") has been obsolete ever since YouTube updated their comments system (My comments are constantly ghosted now, even when they don't have links). I've recently tried PPC with Bing Ads, and even though my quality score is 8/10 for the 2 products I'm promoting, I'm still not selling anything (This is because the search volume for relevant keywords is pretty low) and I do not have the money to keep the campaigns going. Over the last 4 months, I've tried the following methods with little to no success:
    • YouTube+Clickbank (Worked until the update)
    • PPC+Clickbank (Losing too much money)
    • Pinterest+Clickbank (Hops, but no sales)
    • Blogger+Clickbank (works well with other methods, but not by itself)
    • Craigslist+Clickbank (didn't work)
    • Backpage+Clickbank (didn't work)
    • Adult websites+Clickbank
    • Yahoo Answers+Clickbank (People flag are quick to flag answers, even if the answers are relevant to the question)
    • Facebook+Clickbank (didn't work)
    So, I'm really not sure what to do at this juncture. I'm not asking anyone for "methods", but any help would be appreciated.

    You just have to be steady man. Don't jump from one method to another one. You shouldnt stop the method only because YouTube changed something...they are permanently changing and there are many ways to get traffic from YT.
    2 months ago when I made over 300$ per day and YouTube deleted all my videos I was really fucked up and I wanted to give up, but then I realized that I have to do better and smarter next time. And now I earn over 100$ per day again and it will be more and more everyday.

    So the only thing I can tell you is: do the method you think that will make you the most amount of money. learn about the method, try, try, fail, try again and be successful.
    learn the game and then learn to be the best in the game dude

    cheers

    Thanks for the advice, nakamura! I'll more than likely stick with YouTube and Bing Ads since those are the only two methods that I can make any progress with (I've even received 14 order form impressions and 3 server calls from using Bing Ads today. but for some reason, I haven't received any money for it!).

    I never quit a method because of the hops, I only quit if I wasn't selling anything after a month (Blogger+Clickbank and Pinterest+ Clickbank were an exception from this since I needed to build up an audience first). For example, with Backpage+Clickbank, if I wasn't getting any hops after a week, I would revise the method and try again. If I still didn't get any hops, I would revise it again before deciding to quit. As far as hops are concerned, though, I've never received more than 46 hops in a day because I go for targeted hops.
