Hello.
I am trying Clickbank for the 1812498th time and I'm experiencing still the same disappointment.
I am promoting two products (Shed Plans and Tiny Home Plans), on my website and social media accounts (the same niche).
Please look at the results and tell me what am i doing wrong.
Or maybe I'm not doing anything wrong, is it just that the products are shit?

If it's cold traffic, it's normal. Do you do free traffic ? If you do, then, it's not that bad, but if you do paid traffic and you lose money, you should consider changing the strategy.

Clickbank is absolute trash. Look at the offers the big boys are running and do whatever you can to get on the private networks with those offers.

You are not effectively targeting the products to the correct audience(s).
Show me any large platform where a click bank offer is being blasted... they don't exist, you won't find them.

I have yet to meet a single person who has ever done well on ClickScam.

bud look at the offers being run on the big networks. check native ads, fb ads, whatever you have to just look yourself and get those offers these guys aren't running them for fun.

^^ What he said.

I remember when I first got into IM, Clickbank seemed like it was the shit. I would see screenshots from other IMers who were doing hundreds or thousands per day on Clickbank, and I visualized the fuck out of that image (me logging into my account one day and seeing the same numbers).

I'm not sure why, but CB is the first affiliate network that most of us are told to try when we're new, which is unfortunate in hindsight because it does appear to convert like absolute shit. This probably discourages a lot of new people.

I understand now why it converts so poorly - because most of the products are trash. At the time we don't know any better though.

I did have a select few CB products/affiliate sites that I got lucky on actually and ended up making some decent cash with them before flipping the sites on Flippa for a few k each. This was a lot to me when I was new and it did give me the motivation to keep moving forward.

When my income really took off though was when I moved away from Clickbank and started working with other networks.

To answer your question though, we would need more info. Like are you ranking on Google for highly targeted search queries such as "tiny home plans" or "plans to build my own shed"? Those will have a much higher chance of converting with those offers than if you're buying untargeted traffic from FB for example or if you're ranking for more vague keywords on Google.

Yea and its much more complex than people realize. I have seen behind the curtain of the product companies and the networks as I have worked with them for a very long time.

What new people don't understand is how competitive offers are on networks. Because of this competition almost every product company raises their cpa for the network but then just scrubs the sales from the network. They do this to make it look like a better offer in that vertical(higher CPA). And you may be wondering well isn't EPC the only thing that matters for running offers who cares about CPA?

The answer to that is YES epc is literally the only thing you should look at, don't even ask what the cpa is it doesn't matter. But what people don't understand is who the Account Managers are a.k.a. the person sharing the link. They are the ones telling you what offers are good and what you should try. They are almost always these young attractive girls that have no clue what's going on. They just look and see oh this is $135 and this is $145 run the $145. Or this big affiliate is doing X so you should do X.

It gets even deeper bc the networks can ALSO scrub sales. Here I know for a fact the top networks don't scrub. Clickbank I would probably bet the bank scrubs the shit out of all their affiliates.

Then you add in the landers themselves, the MIDS, the processing/paymentMethods and they all affect conversion. Not to mention the top offers a lot of the times, although not recently, can and do run out of cap. And to get cap you have to be run offers. So to make the most money you have to already be making money to access to the highest EPC offers.

So when you join a network and run an offer there are a lot of things happening behind the scenes. It goes really deep.
