Herpes cure? Really? I never planned on promoting this but just the thought of this being an info product on CB is scary. Tinnitus remedy? These products seem to make exceptionally outrageous claims.
Eating disorders? Anxiety Cures? The former should be dealing with a professional and the latter ...well, its pretty well known you don't cure anxiety, you manage it. Same with the herps.
I don't even want to begin to talk about the MMO products (which guarantee income in the sales page, and subsequently say the can't guarantee income in the terms and conditions).
There is a whole section on new age/alternative beliefs, which, well, to put it gently seems like complete hogwash.
So, simply glancing through the products is enough to turn me off to CB marketing.
That being said, I'm sure some people here sell them, and maybe even sell them well - I mean no offense to you. These products are just not for me. Furthermore, I do believe there are quality products on CB, which I will get to momentarily.
What I am looking for is a quality product, which has value for its clients, in a non-ultra competitive niche (so lets go ahead and knock off health & fitness). I don't have any exceptional technical skills (so lets knock off Software.)
So aside from my conscience and competition, there comes the issue of interest.
Now, I don't know for sure, but let's say for example, the model train niche on CB provides an excellent product to an enthusiastic wealthy clientele. Perfect. Except, well, there is no way in hell I'm joining model train forums to "contribute value", I don't own or know anything about model trains, and have no desire to do so. It seems rather boring and uninteresting to me. It also seems like it would be difficult to know the ins and outs better than a true enthusiast, so it generally leaves me discouraged. Do I just need to get over this and push through it?
Well, this is getting "rant-y", and for the I apologize - but picking the product has been BY FAR the most difficult part for me. I'm ready to pick a decent product that adds value for clients in something I am interested in enough to research extensively. I'm ready to research, learn, contribute, and build relationships with client in a niche. I'm ready to develop quality content, drive traffic, build a list, and promote. However, I'm not ready to sacrifice morals and ethics to do so - and I'm generally not interested in what is left over. I do see some stuff I AM interested in, but regretfully, it has 0 demand.
So, if you're willing to help I'd like to know if you have experienced the same issues and how you handled them. Am I alone here? Have you had to sacrifice some morals or ethics for a buck? Regarding a lack of interest did you say, "screw it" and learn 1,000,000 ways to make paper turtles? Spend extensive time and money to master World of Warcraft in order to sell a game guide?
