    I think most professional affiliates would have that very high on their list of criteria, yes.

    Earnings per sale, yes; not "commission percentage", obviously (50% of $97 is worth a lot more than 75% of $27!). That's on everyone's list, somewhere. I think it's often lower down than many considerations, though: however much a product pays, if the sales page has leaks on it, there's not much point in promoting it, is there?

    Understandably, and wisely, high gravity discourages many of us who are making our full-time livings this way. It doesn't correlate in any way with either conversion-rates or sales numbers, after all, but can ring some real alarm bells for all the reasons explained here and in 100 other threads.

    The niche, of course, is relevant one way or another. For example, there's not much point in promoting a product whose customers may already themselves be ClickBank affiliates: one would have to ask oneself (and answers are none-too-apparent) why they might buy it through one's affiliate-link rather than through their own?! :rolleyes:

    I don't myself know of a serious ClickBank affiliate who really looks at those or takes them into account in selecting products to promote, at all. To be honest, I slightly shudder at the concept of that as a "selection criterion". If I were a vendor, I'd like to think - on balance - that affiliates to whom that's a major concern might perhaps be better off promoting someone else's products rather than mine, to be honest. :confused:

    If it helps, I have a little 10-point checklist to select suitable products to promote as an affiliate. It's been very helpful indeed to me.

    I think that the "in your niche" is as important as anything. If you've established yourself as an expert in some area, your followers/subscribers are going to respect your opinion on a product in that category. I blog on fitness, so I look for health/weight loss/fitness products. The people who read my blog would think I went mad if I suddenly started spouting off about some wonderful new sales copy generator or something totally out of character.

    on the other hand my in my blog on writing, that sales copy thing might fly well.

      I only promote Clickbank products that I like, bought, and used myself. I don't pay any attention, whatsoever, to any of those other numbers. I don't see how I could possibly promote something that I don't know anything about.

      I could care less about percentage really.. I never understood why people get excited over 100% of $7. I'd rather get 50% of $200. $100 commission beats $7 in my book

      not really. I've done very well with low gravity items, as long as the sales copy was good.

      The only time I look gravity is if I want to try to get SEO traffic on the product name.

      yes.

      never.. could care less. Banners are for people who just want to put some ads on their site - and as a vendor you could not ask for any worse CTR. In my opinion, the affiliates a vendor would want are not the sort who use banners. Yes, there are exceptions to the rule, blah blah blah...

    First, that I have read/tried the product and like it.

    Next, that it has a converting sales page (not so easy to tell always)

    Next, that it is in the price range I prefer.

    Next, that it's in a niche I understand.

    Last, that the sales page does not have 'leaks'.

    Even with all that, I still make mistakes. :-)

    The niche is obviouly important. I also look at the sales page, product quality, something with a high EPS (love to promote stuff where almost all sales end up with the customer getting an up-sell or some form of recurring billing). I also look for nice affiliate tools and good jv/affiliate support. If you don't respond to my concerns when I'm promoting your stuff, how I can expect that you would respond your customers?

    A good product that I either tried myself or got recommended by someone I trust

      trust is absolutely a huge factor. I find also that products offering video training courses that are step-by-step tend to sell well also. before i buy anything i also come on here and make sure it is a good product worth buying. WF peeps dont let you down and they are, for the most part, honest

    The money, and who is the guy behind the launch.

    I have blacklisted a number of CB launchers due to them just being a "hit and run" and "MnM" ( now you see, now you dont) marketers who are off to their next launch
