Here is where I'm scratching my head. Many of the 'obvious' keywords have a pretty high CPC, and when I work the numbers out - my conversions would have to be extremely high just to break even.
Lets take golf for example. It'll probably cost you .70+ per click for just about any keyword with the word golf in it. You're not gonna do so hot if your trying to push a $37+ CB product.
So my question to those who are successful affiliate markets who are building lists....
Are you thinking outside the box when it comes to keywords, and trying to align your offers with a demographic? That is bidding on keywords that are being typed in by people who would most likely play golf.
Are you some how getting your opt-in conversions to 40%?
