Default eLeavers for Clickbank.

Hello,

I recently registered my domain, slapped together a simple template, threw a few Clickbank niches on there.

Then proceeded to fund an eLeavers account, getting a fair few page impressions, 1.09% CTR.

No sales yet - but that's to be expected with only 15 clicks off two campaigns.

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck using this method? I've seen mixed reviews on eLeavers, scarily, more bad than good.

I'll update if I get any sales, haven't set my hopes too high, thinking AdSense or AdBrite might be the way to go?

But yeah, any success stories, I'd love to hear them!

Cheers.

I havent used eleavers before but I suspect you find difficulty getting their traffic to convert with any sort of decent ROI on a clickbank product. I'll be extremely interested to see your results.

You might also consider using it for some CPA zip/email easy submit campaigns.

Anyway, good luck!

Yeah, I've read a fair few stories on people using eleavers for building lists with splash pages, I guess the problem with CB is everyone spams the links all over the internet, It's hard to find an audience that hasn't seen it, especially one targeted to looking to make some cash online.

Cheers for the input and luck wishes!

It's true, but it doesn't matter.

Those "marketers" with their hoplinks all over the internet aren't really "competitors" in any meaningful sense of the word: they represent only a large and futile turnover of people who've bought the same silly guidebooks (written by people who couldn't make a living from ClickBank and hope to have better luck selling "ClickBank information"), none of them lasting very long but with their places rapidly being filled by the next "generation" (I think in internet marketing a "generation" is about 3-4 months, isn't it?!) who repeat all their mistakes while making their own inexorable journeys toward giving up because, just like all their predecessors, they "took action" but with no realistic education before doing so, and set off in the wrong direction, as a result.

A small proportion of the particularly frustrated ones among them even come back 6 months later to announce that "ClickBank products are all crap and the whole thing's a scam, anyway!".

It's also true, but it also doesn't matter very much.

I sell many hundreds of ClickBank products every month, and a high proportion of the people who buy them have seen their sales pages before but decided not to, on those occasions. That isn't important at all. What determines through whom and when someone buys is what's gone into the list-building and subscriber-nurturing, and the perceived "strength of the recommendation".

Also true, but yet again it doesn't actually matter very much.

That niche isn't a very suitable one for ClickBank affiliates who actually want to be paid for all the sales they produce anyway (just a ClickBank-specific anomaly of the individual niche, for the reasons explained in this post: Selecting the product ).

I wish you very good luck with it, but please excuse the observatiom that it hardly sounds like an approach calculated to produce income. Possibly this thread will assist you? What are the best ways to promote click bank products?

It may be "to be expected" with 15,000 clicks, as well. And there may be reasons for that, as the saying goes.

It does seem pretty unlikely, doesn't it, when you think about what really makes people buy information products online (but you haven't actually done that yet, I think? You've been too busy "taking action", perhaps?).

Another Noob spamming the Biz Op scene???

Don't mean to be rude but why not go create a real business instead of the constant bombardment of "how to make money online" when you don't know yourself how to make money online!

Its a vicious circle that helps no one!

You would get better results creating a forum to do with origami or playing board games!

Seriously there are easier micro niches to go straight into and build a business one step at a time.

I currently have a website just for my own home county that allows people to sell their car for free and the dealerships in the area pay to advertise big bucks on there.

Its free so people have no concerns or suspicions about signing up and posting an ad and the big dealerships in the area want to get seen.

I would rethink how you look at the internet to make a living as going into a market with desperate buyers isn't always the best option.

That's given me a lot to think about, thank you very much for your input, and I'm glad to hear someone out their is successful in their ClickBank endeavours.

I've been failing online for a couple of years, and will continue to do so until I make a turnover, I think my next step will be (spending more than 20 minutes designing a landing page) and using AdSense, also working towards list building. It's a tedious process, but seemingly worth it in the end.

I'm really sorry to hear it.

Dare I suggest that spending a few hours spent reading slowly and carefully the threads linked to above (yes, it really will take "a few hours"!) might be much more productive than starting to think now about what your next step might be?

I promise I'm not trying to be rude to you, but "taking action" is not your problem: your problem is that you're frantically trying to derive income by selling (the wrong) things in various different confused and confusing ways, without yet understanding what makes people buy any of them.

AdSense is not the answer to your problems.

@Collin,

Cheers for the input, but not everyone becomes "pro" instantly, I'm going to continue my attempts to make this work and learn, but will definitely keep your suggestions in mind.

Congratulations on the successful website, I do have multiple websites that cater to particular needs, learning the so called "tricks of the trade" for making money selling niches is a particular interest of mine.

I appreciate the feedback!

That's why you have the problem.

You'll have the potential to make 10 or even 100 times as much income selling hydroponic-gardening or home-brewing or learn-Spanish products rather than "make money online" products. The problem is, you don't like those, and they're not glamorous and exciting and interesting like all the stuff that doesn't produce any income for you. At some point, you need to decide whether you're doing it for fun or for money. If it's for fun, then no problem: have fun with it. But if it's for money, you need to understand why "promoting MMO stuff" is the single commonest mistake that beginning internet marketers make and the single commonest cause of failure in IM. I'm "just saying", but probably I've said enough, so will just wish you well and leave you in peace.

Not at all, I appreciate any and all advice, criticism, constructive or other.

I guess it's more curiosity, this online money making process. I'm having fun learning, but some cash from the project would be good.

I see now I have a lot more to learn than I bargained for.
