Anybody make any money posting blog comments?

8 replies
I tried this method of promoting affiliate offers from places like Clickbank:

Basically, I post on blogs in certain niches related to the product I am promoting.

I add value by expressing interest in the content and establishing how I connect with the content, then I softly promote my offer by selling the click to the link.

I never made any sales with this method, although it seems like some marketers swear by it.

I was wondering if anyone out there tried this method and successfully made money with it. If so, what was your process?

    That is serious old school method.


    I would look into sponsored posts. Maybe even Medium articles.


    I have received some DMs on Instagram where someone is making a referral for another person it always makes me wonder how much that person is getting compensated to make DMs for another marketer.


    You may get more traction from having an optimized Facebook Profile and joining several niche focused groups and sharing helpful engaging posts.

    I do this with "Product" all the time IE Amazon Affiliate... the ABSOLUTE secret? Buy and USE the Item... With Products... take photos of the item that are not the same or close as the marketing photos.

    You simply can't sell what you dont know. Picking any ol thing and copying some text here and there... its just the same as everyone else.. you just wont get traction...UNLESS you already have traction - and if you did, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    If you are looking to sell a course from Clickbank... BUY the Course, USE the Course and then DOCUMENT your way through USING the course.

    Then BUY another one... USE it, DOCUMENT, and THEN... compare the 2

    Add a 3rd... add a 4th

    YOU will build traction... TRUST ME... but you have to put in the time... You have to come out of pocket for the courses

    Sounds like you are spamming to me .I applaud you for giving value but don't assume that the prospect wants your product without communicating and getting approval .

    Blog commenting can get you leads which can eventually lead to sales .I would advise you not do esn't spamm and only provide a link if asked or agreed upon without violating rules or guidelines.

    So I can explain to you how I learned this and I think this is a better way than how you seem to be trying to do it.


    When you comment on other website owners blog posts just leave out the part where you try to sell your own product. Just focus on the content of the blog post in question, be helpful, be useful in your comment, give additional value, or if you can't think of anything, just eloquently emphasize how great you think the post is.


    The next step you do is to share the blog post you just commented on all your social media profiles and keep giving props there. Also, you should tag the blogger when you share their post, for example, on Twitter.


    In this way you build a relationship of trust, you get attention it is seen that you are not just about selling your product now but that you appreciate the work of others participate in it and share their work.


    This way you automatically become interesting as well and people will want to check out what you are doing, what blogposts you are writing and ultimately what products you are marketing and the more authentic you are the more likely they will want to have something to do with you and the more likely they will find your stuff interesting.


    Then you will finally reach your goal to sell your own product. It goes without saying that the product should be useful and valuable. The important thing is to make the mindset shift from desperate salesman to someone who wants to help others without this permanent focus on your own success in the back of your head.

    I have a few Clickbank links on Pinterest and a blog, but just a few clicks and no sales. Clickbank comes across as very lucrative, if you find a few top programs with high gravity.

      Gravity measures how many affiliates made one sale in the previous 30 days.


      Not the best way to go about picking a product.


      If 1000 make one sale for Product A


      and 50 make 1000 sales for product B


      which product do people seem to want to buy more?


      The gravity of product A is 1000;
      the one for product B is 50.

    The method is long gone. Better start doing something legit. These short cuts never work for long term. If you like writing then you can start a blog in the space you are interested and then grow each day.

    • That is what I did in the interesting trivia space within depth articles. Nothing revolutionary. Been using social media to boost views and get reaction to build links. Just a hobby. Maybe one day I can start making some decent cash flow from it but for right now it is just a hobby.

      But to add meaningful information. Like everyone else said, I would ditch that strategy honestly. Lot of people know more than me but if you have a passion for writing a blog for a specific topic, you can start providing meaningful content. You start developing and ranking for these, your viewers become your money ticket. So, writing meaningful, well thought out, well keyworded, well SEO'd content, and lastly cited content will help you to move in Google, and for people to take your site with authority and potentially backlink it. Some people write reviews over products they tried and that is a way to get free or discounted merchandise and also try to sell it on your website, when you have enough of a following to do so. Just like tiktok-ing or instagramming, all that stuff.
