Do I just Suck or Are Clickbank Products too expensive?

by 22 comments
I've been marketing online for a while. so many blogs i cant even tell you what happened to the majority of them. websites floating around somewhere in cyberspace that I wouldnt even recognise from years back.

So far, I've been able to sell ebooks pretty consistently on ebay and a few through blogs and email lists, but they've all had to be priced ridicilously cheap for me to get any kind of response. you know, the quick $5 or less special report that can be instantly downloaded.

I've spent money advertising both clickbank and cj.com products through pay per click programs like adwords and adcenter, but i've only been able to get one sale from click bank, and a bunch of impressions and clicks from Commission junction, without any sales, or leads even.

like i said, i'm leaning more towards thinking that its just me who sucks, because everyone else seems to be having no problems finding customers willing to spend $50-200 for an information product.

    I'm going to give it to you straight.

    I don't know what your approach is, but any product can be sold if it
    solves the need of the person looking for a solution. I sell many products
    outside of IM that go for a pretty penny.

    The key is crafting your presales strategy in a way that when they
    actually get to the sales page, they're almost ready to buy.

    Without knowing exactly what you're doing, especially with Adwords,
    it would be impossible to give you a better answer than that. But
    essentially your hypothesis is correct. If the product has a decent
    gravity and is proven to sell then the problem is probably with what
    you're doing and not with the product.

    If the site linked to in you .sig is any example of your current promotions, your main problem is that you're using afiliate-unfriendly free hosts to promote your offers.

    As Gary Halbert would put it - don't look cheap when you're trying to get people to give you money. Even a squidoo lens would be better than free hosting with a banner you earn nothing from plastered on top.
