I'm having a hard time deciding which ad network to try. I'm looking to direct link to clickbank products. Looking for an ad network that allows direct linking and that is cheaper than adwords and yahoo search. Also, reasonable quality traffic is important too.

Any thoughts on which of these ad networks to go with?

adbrite.com
clicksor.com
exoclick.com
bidvertiser.com
adengage.com
chitika.com

Thanks for your input.

    Hi,
    I wouldn't recommend you to do direct linking to clickbank products.
    Have you considered other methods to promote?

    If you still wanna go with it, here are two reasonable ppc networks:
    7search
    looksmart

      The old adagge of 'testing' comes to mind. Having tried some in the past, I advise that you focus on just 1 and make that one work for you. Then move on to the next.

      Like everything else, you'll just spread yourself too thin otherwise and do a 'half job' with them all.

      Good luck.

      Why wouldn't you recommend direct linking to CB products?

      I have considered promoting via other products, but to be honest I worry that will lose lots of conversions by putting a landing page in the middle of the process.

      What you suggest?

        I would recommend to direct the traffic to a landing page/blog.
        You should also try to get the visitor's email by providing some value.

      ^^^^ This.

      The two primary requirements for selling Clickbank products as an affiliate are (i) the ability to pre-sell effectively, and (ii) the ability to build a list. By direct linking you can do neither.

    Would definitely recommend directing via a landing page rather than direct linking. Its all about building relationships and most people take the offer after seeing it roughly 5 times

      What kinda landing page do you have success with? Review style?

    I suggest directly contacting websites with relevant content to what you're selling. Most of the traffic from those networks sucks.
