Hi all,

I've an old burner site I picked up and has around 50K organic uniques p/m

I wouldn't mind throwing some affiliate offers on it but have checked all the usuals (CB, AA, JVZ) but there's nothing decent.

Has anybody had any experience with decent vendors/product creators in this niche? I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but hey, if people believe it!

Thx in advance.

    One of the most popular sites for this niche is Llewellyn.
    They have an affiliate program through CJ but I know that's the place to go for products on spirituality, magic, tarot and such.

    It sounds like the ones that do, have sussed out that you don't believe it, and have gone elsewhere.

    Adsense might be your only choice if there are no other affiliate programs for that market. You might get a click on an ad from a website they visited recently that is using Google advertising to get visitors back to their site.

    Ebay might have some strange things being auctioned that would interest the crowd.

    Any decent shirt designs from any of the shirt websites out there?

      Yeah I ran a couple of shirt campaigns from TS, to the email list and as usual the campaigns were good, although as you know, they are not evergreen. I prefer the residual subs you can get from these visitors as it makes for a handsome sale on the flip.

    Wouldn't that be akin to some type of abuse, or victimization of those not playing with a full deck - and I am NOT referring to a full deck of Tarot cards.? lol

    Amazon has a wide array of books, amulets, talismans, and other products in this crazy popular and quite lucrative niche. The past few years in particular have been a dramatic increase in popularity, and this growing trend is expected to continue in the foreseeable future.

      I'll only ever list my own products and services with Amazon. Probably the worst affiliate program out there in my opinion.

        Perhaps so, but you'll find it to be the only whore around with so much to choose from. I have several Amazon websites closely related to this nonsense niche (paranormal, psychic, astrology, UFO, extraterrestrial, etc) that consistently pull in a 3-4 figure income per month. You get paid not just for what you promote, but on anything else your customers buy through your affiliate links.

          Oh yeah, for sure. I did run AA accounts in the past but found that it was easier to flip sites with one or two premium product affiliations as opposed to Amazon. If worst comes to worst I'll have to consider it as PPC is pretty poor. It's not something I plan on keeping very long, perhaps another 12 months before putting it on the market.

    This is perfect for Native ads. A lot of them are hocus-pocus related.

    They don't pay a lot but it's very common to get multiple clicks from a single visitor. People open all the stories that interest them in new windows and then go through them.

      Cheers,

      It's currently doing around $500 a month with ads. But I'm hoping to get it from the 6k per annum to around 20k plus before I flip it. I don't have much time or patience as it's a small project but I know it can do better with the right product. Just a weird niche to research. It's all a load of nonsense!

    What about eBay? They have an affiliate program and there's all kinds of occult stuff on there.

      Possibly, however I was looking more for something more specific and with better percentages.
