    Very large numbers of Warriors are making their full-time livings as ClickBank affiliates. (I do a few other little things, too, myself, but however hard I try to diversify, ClickBank is still over 70% of my income).

    Anything that's in accordance with the three "basic essentials" can be worth a try, in principle, for people who have the requisite skills to do it successfully.

    Personally, I'd advise anyone to stay away from methods that aren't in accordance with those three fundamentals, though, because in a field of enveavor with such a low overall success-rate, one wouldn't want to stack the deck profoundly against oneself.

    The "three essentials" post linked to, just above, was actually written in 2012 but its content is even more applicable and relevant in 2015 than it was then.

    A few tips to make money from clickbank
    1. Find product, which have high gravity (If high gravity that mean surely to sell)
    When you finish to find product, Create blog about this product and create benefit articles and promote affiliate link.
    2. I found this method, Create video to post in youtube. I found many peoples make money from clickbank with this method.

      We can all see why you want your signature-file in this thread, but you're talking total nonsense, there, I'm afraid.

      "High gravity" means no such thing at all.

      There isn't a correlation between gravity numbers and sales numbers, nor between gravity numbers and conversion-rates, nor necessarily even between gravity numbers and the number of affiliates promoting the product.

      There are many products with single-figure gravities steadily outselling products with much higher gravities.

      These posts/threads give an overview of "how gravity actually works" ...

      Clickbank gravity - is there a sweet-spot here?

      Like many people earning our full-time livings here mostly as ClickBank affiliates, the extreme irony inherent in seeing the words "If high gravity that mean surely to sell" ( ), when our best-selling, best-converting products are (for good and valid reasons) typically single-figure-gravity ones, and our long experience of the many and varied drawbacks of trying to promote very high-gravity products, invariably predicate some sort of well-evidenced, explanatory reply! Absolutely no impoliteness intended, but "the higher the better", for gravity, was the impression of ClickBank affiliate promotion with which I originally started out, myself, and was the reason I earned nothing for so many long months! As I've explained at the end of the first of the 5 posts linked to, above, at the time all I really had to do, to start making a living, was to understand how deeply misguided that perception was and act accordingly! .

    So obvious, a blind man can spot it a mile away.

      I don't rate Clickbank at all.

      Some time ago I promoted a couple of products from Clickbank where appropriate on my website. I picked up a few sales. But because they were drawn out over a period of time Clickbank took monthly fees from my earnings, and eventually took all the money. About $170. They never paid me a dime. My account still shows $0.00 earned. There is no justification whatsoever for charging huge fees simply for holding money someone else has earned.

      Not the vendor's fault. And I often wonder if vendors know what Clickbank are up to with new affiliates. I'd never go near them again.

      Just a warning.

      Brian.

        You presumably didn't realise, at the time, but you could have prevented all that from happening, simply by buying a $3 product through your own hoplink. Those unpleasant "dormant account charges" come into effect only when your account hasn't seen a single sale in 90 days. But buying something (for example on day 89) resets the clock and gives you another 90 days. You don't need to lose a penny, that way.

          Hi Lexy,

          No, I wasn't aware of that. Rather re-enforces my point I think. Having to resort to a little known tactic simply in order to secure my own money from Clickbank tells me all I need to know about them.

          No thanks.

          Brian.

            Well, I'm sure they don't see it that way, Brian ... but I've always been outspokenly opposed to the "dormant account charges" (and often questioned their legality, in fact), and the combination of those and the "customer distribution requirement" (which in itself I strongly support, and which benefits affiliates greatly) is - to put it mildly - "very unfortunate", admittedly.

    Clickbank is still good. There are a lot of poor products on there, but there are some that sell well. Always worth taking a look at to see if it suits your audience.

    I am also doing CB... started couple months ago with Bing ads and direct linking, but probably will get into list building and maybe own product creation.
    I find CB easiest to scale up and I've tried amazon associates, sites flipping, ...etc

    Definitely, CB has its own magic and people are gravitated towards it.

    Clickbank products and sales pages are virtually no different than a book or course that you created. The only difference is that you 100% of the profits when your product sells. With Clickbank... you get roughly 50%-60% of the sales. Nevertheless... when you market those digital items the same way you would market YOUR OWN digital product... it will eventually result in sales (assuming you do good marketing).

    Clickbank isn't dead. Most people's marketing strategies are.
