My own clickbank product?

7 replies
I'm fairly new to the IM world. I bought a couple of courses, and a copy of market samurai, which got me going.

I've managed to get my first 2 sites in the top 5 for my niche.

I've had no success in making money yet, adsense failed, a couple of clickbank products haven't had a sale, but I'm thinking of creating my own specific product in Clickbank, and posting on other affiliate site too...

Anyone done this before?

    What type of traffic are you getting for your site?

    I really wouldn't suggest creating your own product for a site until you've established that it "makes sense". Now, this is just my approach, but I would first prove that the site/niche can make some money selling affiliate products first and if it can, then look to create your own. It's just lower risk in terms of money and time invested...

    The niche may simply not be a good "buyers" niche and it might not be worth the trouble...

    Just my $.02 worth, but that's the strategy I employ and it's done quite well...

      My traffic is coming to get information, but my thinking is they'd want to grab all the information they need in eBook, and pay for it...

    Well just so long as your product isn't about how to make money (you still need practice) you might be okay. The very best thing you can do is to promote your own products anyway, you will generally make far more money.

      Haha! No it's not about making money...

      There's hope for me yet!

        If you haven't made a sale with your sites yet, maybe it's an indication that you still have more to learn about your market.

        These deficiencies could be something that affects your ability to put together a decent product of your own.

        I'd persist with the sites you have up to see if you can figure out what you need to improve first.

          Exactly. That is what I was saying in my post above as well.

          To the thread owner...

          If, however, you're doing just a low end quickie product - like a $7 product or something - then perhaps you could test your theory without too much time involved...

    Creating a product and putting your name on it is a great way to give yourself authority in your niche, just do your market research to make sure it is a profitable niche.

    To make the most of the affiliate sites you put your product on, make sure you have plenty of promotional items to make your affiliates job easier.... By having swipe emails, banners, forum signatures etc this will attract the affiliates to promote your product.
