    Hi! I see alot of products on clickbank that I myself would never buy and think to myself "are people really that gullible to buy x, y and z products which clearly aren't going to work." Do you tend to promote products that you yourself would buy? I tried promoting a product that I would considering buying (a book on photography) and I only sold one product that got returned. Im thinking of changing my approach and promoting products that I myself wouldnt consider a smart valuable buy but consumers who readily believe the hype would buy.

    What kind of traffic are you dealing with and what are some of the offers you are considering promoting? It would be easier to help pick out offers than to attempt to explain the rationale of your target audience.

    Traffic would be from a blogger/wordpress website + fiverr bought review/testimonial on site + articles submitted to article directories with links and articles added to blog.

    Im thinking about some of the following: warcraft gaming guides, payday loans, forex, weight loss advice, ipad lesson tutorial, dating guides.

    There's a difference between what you don't like and what other people won't buy. If you're passionate about the niche that you're in, you'll be able to see what is good and what isn't. If you're not passionate about the niche, then I'd recommend immersing yourself. Load up some discussions and see what people recommend to each other in the niche. That's a start.
