    Hi guys,

    I plan to jump on the boat of Clickbank and so I'm in the process of finding an offer that converts well.
    Do you guys have experience with the "Featured Offers"? Do they convert? What criteria is most important for you when selecting an offer?

    Cheers,

    IMp

    A lot of the 'Featured offers' have just paid to be there. It doesn't really mean they convert well. Gravity is usually a good indicator. The higher the gravity, the better it sells.

    However, a lot of new products get lost amongst the marketplace so you wouldn't know if they convert or not. There are plenty of gems in the marketplace yet to be discovered.

    From our experience, huge gravity is very often NOT an indicator of solid conversions rates. It could be the Delphi Effect or the Herd Syndrome. Best way would be either to ask the vendor and make sure he/she attaches a solid proof of his/her claims or to simply test the product yourself using both cold and warm traffic.

    Find a product that you would personally buy.It would help you target your audience better.
    Products with less sales usually have vendors ready to write articles for you and what not.
    Use google keyword tool and see if there is any search for the not so popular name products.

    And so on..

    There are 1000s of products on ClickBank to promote but mostly weight loss niche is difficult to rank. .

    Like everybody else said, the Gravity of the product.

    The Weight Loss niche is hard to take control of as there are thousands of different members doing it and nobody really wants to buy something like that when there are public knowledge sites out there like Bodybuilding.

    High gravity also means that a lot of people promote the product which in return means that there is huge competition. Gotta see how I go. I see no problem in promoting health products when the traffic is coming and is targeted enough. Now, ranking for a health site is a different story. Anyways, thanks everybody!

    Different but most definitely achievable, if you use the right tools, do your research correctly and target the less obvious keyword phrases typed by prospects who are in a BUYING mode.

    Moreover, ranking is just one of many promotional methods you can use, so I would not analyze the profitability of a product based entirely on its SEO potential.

    Gravity has nothing to do with how well an offer an offer converts.

    From what I remember, gravity essentially equates to the amount sold. For example, a product with a gravity of 300 means that 300 separate accounts could have sold 1 each. Meaning, if each of those accounts had 100 clicks but only sold 1, gravity would still be 300 but conversion ratio would be 1%. However, a product with a gravity of two could mean that the accounts which they were sold on only sold 1 each, but could have had a higher conversion ratio of like 85% (unlikely, but this is just an example).

    Gravity does not always equate to higher conversion rates.

    In order to find out how well a product converts, it is best to pick a few of your favorites and then test each offer with at least a few hundred clicks and then finally settle on your favorite product.

    A few points to generally avoid when choosing a product:
    - Cleaner is better. Does it look like a shoddily made 5min conversion page?
    - Does it FORCE you to sign up to their list before even showing you the offer?
    - Does it have like 50 pop-ups saying "BUT WAIT, We'll throw in THIS amazing offer"?

    Most importantly, after reading their sales letter (or at least the first 30-60 seconds of their sales video now, more commonly) does it pique/hold your interest? Does the product look like it has any value before you even consider purchasing it?

    Also, you should message the vendor to see if they'll give you a free copy of their product. A decent portion of the time they'll give it to you, so it's good to see if their product is any worth selling at all to begin with. If it looks poorly made or suspicious as fuck, don't even bother because chargebacks would be through the roof.

    I haven't done CB in quite awhile, but I hope this helps! :)

    Not entirely correct. Although the main mathematical equation of CB's gravity is based on the number of separate CB affiliate accounts which sold at least 1 copy each in the previous 30-45-60 days (not sure about the right figure here), the volume of sales by any particular affiliate also plays a significant part.

    For example: if you have 230 separate affiliates who sold 1 copy each and 1 affiliate who sold 400 copies during the previous several days, your gravity number would be much higher than 231. Guaranteed.

    I'm not quite sure if that's how it is now (I did this quite awhile ago) but you're right on the specific day periods, I forgot about that.

    It's just a few general tips anyway to get the OP started, hoped it help :p

    Bottom line is that gravity isn't really the determining factor on how well a product converts.

    People say that high gravity products sell well but I've been dealing with clickbank a few years and have yet to see this proven to me. However I do promote a very high gravity product that sells well but I'm not sure if the gravity has anything to do with it or not. It doesn't just sell well but it sales extremely well. Please don't message me asking for my golden goose.
