    Call me a skepchick, but I always suspect that with listbuilding (as indeed with some other aspects of internet marketing), "quick" and "free" are exactly the kind of approaches that lead so many people to imagine that "a 20% open-rate from your subscribers is normal".

      For the record, this really isn't quite right.

      Some low gravity products are consistently outselling products with gravities in three figures. At the moment, my own three bestselling products - out of everything I promote - all have gravities lower than 5.0.

      Gravity doesn't mean quite what I suspect you think it means. It has no correlation at all with sales numbers or with conversion-rates. These posts/threads will inform you, if you want to see ...

        Thanks for letting me know

        I've removed the message since it was wrong answer.

        I am not arguing that gravity is not everything, I am sure there are good products there with low gravity.

        But low gravity does means not many people promoting the product. And that is vast majority of products on ClickBank.

          Technically, low gravity means that there aren't many people MAKING SALES for the product on a daily basis. This might, however, have nothing to do with who wants to promote a product and have everything to do with who knows about the product.

          Back when my old employer put offers on Clickbank, we were probably paying out $30K a day in affiliate commissions, but our gravity probably never got above 50 (in an era when Clickbank launches were hitting gravities in the four figures). A few affiliates combining for a few hundred sales per day really makes a difference.

            Gravity means a number of distinct affiliates who earned a commission by promoting the vendor's products during the past 12 weeks.

            Basically how many people been sold product in 3 last months, has nothing to do with amount of sales on daily basis.

            You took a quote from my original deleted post (which I removed because clickbanking and clickbank different things and I being tired at the end of the day did not read post properly and made wrong reply) and is out of context.

            In my original post I were saying that to make it on clickbank one needs to be known.

            P.S: I really don't want to spam somebody else thread so I am not going to reply to any further clickbank discussion in this thread.

              It is affected, however, with sales on a daily basis, because it's a rolling figure. Each new day cuts off a day at the start. So maintaining a consistent gravity level does come down to daily sales figures. It's isn't defined by them, but daily sales figures are what cause gravity to go up or down, day-over-day.

              No need in belaboring the point, though.

    If it's a person that delivers sales from solo ads and you know and trust their traffic it's good.

    99% of the time it's an awful idea though. Bot clicks and fake opt ins. It's rare to see click bankers receive sales and a responsive list.

    Build your list on the foundation of stone. The internet is built on ads. There's many ways of getting cheap good converting traffic out there! Click banking isn't the way

    Well clickbanking will probably not be such a good idea if you build a list based on relationship. But if you build a "churn and burn" list it works great.

    Click banking feels like it has sure changed in the last few months. It use to be that you delivered withing 1-2 weeks and then you received within 1-2 weeks. But people seem to be taking a month or 2 and sometimes even longer to get traffic back to you. It is still a great way IF you find a group of QUALITY banking partners that you know deliver well.
