    It's the month after the holiday season, maybe your clickbank sales are down because people spent most of their money on gifts. 6 days without a sale means nothing. You could get 5 sales in day #10 assuming your traffic source is good.

    You are right, A lot of products have many years in CB
    HEALTH Related products, people said january is a good month for health products
    Don't people spent most of their money on health? 6 days without a sale means nothing, you are right, the key is that it never happen before, and the traffic is good.

    That's not what I meant but yes that is also a factor.

    Same here. I'm in the health and fitness on ClickBank and I am still having by far the worse January ever. I mean, targeted traffic (organic search product reviews) is down like never before despite ranking well, better and higher than before, and sales are next to nil.

    This is unprecedented in my 5-year experience with CB. I know that ClickBank is a strange beast and sales do happen in clusters and unpredictably, but for this time of the year it is really extremely bad. It looks like people having a downward shift in interest for fitness/health related digital programs, both old and new. After a brief pick-up time from New Year to 15th Jan, sales have now ground to a stop when in fact the high season should pick up and traffic and sales increase . Is anyone else experiencing the same?

    Those landing pages are actually why marketers are so successful on Clickbank. I also had this mentality - look at this thread I made two years ago. A few months after that, I learned why @Enryu was so right.

    OP, to answer your question as someone else stated January is typically a weaker month. Sometimes there are other factors involved, and Clickbank sales have proven to sell inconsistently at times. Just read the CB section here on BHW and you'll find many threads like yours. There really isn't much you can do about it except keep optimizing and sending traffic.

    Yes, I thought that as well. That could be a factor. Let's wait for the end of the month, when people get their wages paid in.

    Hmm... my CB sales has reduced a bit but not much. May be it is because people are coming from holidays and no money to spend :) I am also promoting health and fitness products. My Ketogenic Diet sales has gone for a six and no sales for last 7 days but Low Carb 30 Minute Meals product is rocking :)

    Clickbank was cheating on me for a long time. The same situation as yours - I didn't change anything in my traffic source but my sales dropped to 0. Then after sometime they've appeared again. I've quited them.

    I was using clickbank as well. Things have slowed down. I don't like to use Amazon either I feel the commission is just too low. I believe it only will rise to about 8% with consistent sales

    Update. Just as I spoke 2 days ago, sales started rolling in again. Go figure! It must have been people blowing up their money on Xmas for sure. Still, overall conversion is down comparing to January last year and the years before, despite having more product reviews and targeted traffic.
    So I think there is also a general decline in interest for many digital products, except few exceptions, which goes to show NOT to rely just on CB but spread out your assets to other networks and physical products for more stability and consistent income. That's what I am doing right now.
