    Hi

    I recently joined CB's affiliate program, and started to make a few websites related to the products I've singled out. However, I came to think that maybe it would be a better idea to send traffic straight to my affiliate URL, instead of making a presell page.

    I figured if i wrote good (not the average rewritten crap) articles, and posted them to Ezinearticles and other directories, and added a link to my domain (which is forwarded to my CB aff. site) in my resource box, there would be less steps for the potential buyers. I've also considered using Camtasia to make some review videos, post them to Youtube, and brand them with my URL.

    So, what do you think? Presell page, or no presell page? Which will convert better?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    PS. sorry for my broken english. Non native speaker.

    Depends totally on how good your presale page is, if it's a amazingly well converting presale page, it'll convert more, but if it's terrible, I doubt it'll convret at all.

    Thanks.

    I guess I'll have to experiment a little, sending some users directly to my clickbank aff. link, and the rest to my presell page - and se which one converts the best.

    That's correct. But the quality of the sales page is also very important. If the web design looks crappy and the sales letter isn't compelling enough, you should use a pre-sell page.

    Are you talking about clickbank? How are you promoting them? Articles and Youtube? See I am afraid there that you are a few years late to that party, as lame as it was to begin with

    Yes, I'm talking about Clickbank.

    My original plan was to drive traffic to my niche websites by using Youtube and article directories, seasoned with som BH methods. But, I was curious whether a direct link (through a forwarded/masked URL for credebilities sake) would convert better, since Ezinearticles and other 2.0 properties rank well in Google and would attract good targeted traffic.

    Regarding Youtube. There are lots of movies for my niche on the tube, but they are mostly crap videos ripped from the official site with a CB aff. link in the description field. I figured if I could make some tutorial videos, of value (ad maybe post them to niche forums), I would attract some trageted traffic. If I tag my videos properly, and use some rating service, I should be able to rank well.

    I have not uploaded any sites yet. I am currently working on my articles, and a good "battle plan". I'm new to the whole concept of IM, so I'm still in the planning phase.

    I know Clickbank probably is not what it once was (from what I've been reading here and at other boards), but I still think it's profitable if i choose the right route. I have also considered Comission Junction, but I know that many of the advertisers over there reject foreign applications. Which sucks, since I'm not American.

    I really appreciate your input. This forum has been a great resource for me. :)

    It depends on the niche, but I find that one niches like health/weight loss, it's always a good idea to pre-sell/build your list. I can't emphasize how valuable it is to build your own list. For example if you are promoting a weight loss product, you might wanna offer a free report in exchange for the visitor to opt-into your page. Once you have them on the list, you can market the product to them via email. And the best part is once you have built your list to a significant amount, you can always market any new weight loss products to them, they are super targeted.. do you think someone that wants to loose weight today, will probably want to loose weight 6 months down the line? YEAH!

    Think about how much money people with big weight loss lists made when the acai berry trial offers first came out $$$

    So long story short... build a list :)
