Hi I'm looking at being a clickbank affiliate and I'm wondering what is a good grav for a product? and any other tips for choosing good products to promote?

    I have heard a lot of the guru's say stick to stuff with a gravity over 100. However, if the item(s) match your niche very well and the gravity is not that high, then roll the dice and go with it.

    The gravity is only an indication and it does depend on the niche. Over 500 is good for IM but food related products over 20 is good. Again a look in the search would have uncovered this little gem in two secs.

    For me, between 5 and 10 is very good.

    Out of the 25-ish Clickbank products I've promoted over the last two-and-a-bit-years, both the highest-converting and best-selling ones had gravities of around 5.5 - 6. And I've very successfully been promoting a couple of other very good ones with gravities around 7 - 9 (they fluctuate a little of course, from month to month). I've promoted plenty of higher gravity products too, but never done anything like as well with any of them. There are reasons for that.

    The vendor of one of the low-gravity products has another product with a gravity well over 130, but his product with the gravity of 5.5 sells far more copies and converts his affiliates' traffic at a far higher rate than the higher-gravity one does.

    This isn't unusual.

    There's a detailed explanation of "how gravity works" in this post, which may help you.

    Yes; actually I have 9 other tips for choosing good products to promote.

    You can find them all listed together with the tenth one ("gravity") in this post.

      thanks I read your post it was very informative. I understand how gravity is really irrelevant in a lot of ways as far as conversion and how many were sold.. Thank you

    Back in the days when I was promoting CB products, I found that products with 10-50 gravity were the most convertible and also leads to more refunds! Products with gravity higher than 100 has more competition which leads to less sales but also less refunds.

    My suggestion would be to first find a "starving" crowd of people (this is your niche/market) You'll identify what problem this crowd of people has so you can find/promote a product that fixes their problem.

    There has been lots of good feedback already on choosing a good clickbank product which I agree with. I just think it's important to first identify your niche and what problem the people in your niche have. Then promote the best product (using the other feedback in this thread as a guide).

    Good luck!

    Mike

    I actually tend to stay away from products with a higher gravity just because there are already so many other affiliate promoting them that the searchers in that niche have probably seen it many times over

    I wouldn't worry TOO much about gravity, you just want to see enough to know that there are buyers

    Like Mark T said, focus more on lower gravity/low refund

    Gravity. Be sure to market items within a twenty to forty gravity score; a gravity score below twenty indicates the item is not popular enough to market effectively. While gravity scores greater than one is most likely very aggressive for you to earn, as much as when you initially start off. Bear in mind that items that are evidently observed with great vendors without a lot of competitors are a good way to achieve product popularity. So when you're more knowledgeable, you might start targeting a score of fifty gravity applications and merchandise.

      I don't really concern about gravity that much.

      I go to the marketplace and find the market I like to go into, check the website and the salesletter, then do some keyword research on the monthly search volume and competing pages.

      If its all good, then I'll go for it regardless.

      It's really a bit scary that people can not only believe stuff like this, but even try to "teach" it to others. It's just completely wrong.

      Have you actually read any of the posts above, Bruce?!

      Many of the highest-selling products with highest-converting sales pages have gravities well below 20. Many of them even have gravities well below 10.

      ...what if the product had a monstrous crowd of people desperate for a solution to the problem they have and this product is new.

      You don't feel that could be marketed effectively?

      Excellent, more for me.

  • Self judgement and research are you best tools to find out what products you should promote.

    Tips I've learnt recently are to not go for products who give something away for free or ask for opt-ins.

    I've also learnt that you can enter harder niches, because you don't necessarily have to rank for the better terms to make a good income.

    Take this advice how you want, I havn't made money specifically with CB and have only recently started working on my first site regarding a Click Bank product. If it goes as well as the other methods I use, I could be onto a winner

    Gravity does not mean everything so dont worry
    If the product is selling well and is perfectly matched to what you are promoting go with it.But if dosent turn out so good or dosent convert well,pick another product

    I don't get too caught up in gravity but I don't ignorre it either. I check (at the VERY least) Alexa, the salespage, if it's a good match for my niche and so on.

    Or, mix Clickbank products with other affiliate promotions.
