I've never had much luck with ClickBank. I've sold a product here and there, but I've never really focused on it. After reading about other people having great luck with it, I decided to give ClickBank another go. So, I found what I thought to be a great business model, a product with a sales page that would convince me to buy, built a site, and have been working on it off and on for the last 2 months.
The site gets a decent amount of traffic, for a new site, is keyword optimized for organic traffic, and gets about 15+ hops a day. After 2 months, over 200 hops, and no sales I pretty much wrote the site off as a dud, but decided to finish implementing my marketing plan on it because I wanted to see the site to completion for my own peace of mine. I know it probably sounds like I was giving up too easy . . . but the site has also been optimized for high PPC for Adwords so I figured I would finish my marketing plan, then if I hadn't gotten a sale I would throw Adwords on there to make money. I always like to have a Plan B when I make a site.
I was fired from my job about a week and a half ago, so I've really been devoting a lot of time to my online business while at the same time looking for new employment. I checked ClickBank earlier today and there was nothing, as usual. I just checked it a little while ago though and I had gotten a sale with $45 commission. My eyes literally started to water. Might not be a big deal to anyone but me, but I thought I would share regardless.
