    I personally love click bank for video marketing and have made decent money with them...Although my main business does not revolve around click bank I enjoy the extra money I make with it...If you can build niche websites that attract enough traffic you can do very well with click bank.

    You can use the free version of cbtrends or cbengine to figure out which products do well. If you already have a website you can promote the offers in your niche.

      While I do agree with you sort of with your statement, you must remember GRAVITY has nothing to do with how well you will convert and get sales.

      In fact, I just looked over all my stats and we seem to do better with clickbank products that have a tiny gravity but good sales page.

      High gravity we tend to stay away from. It comes down to the niche and sales page. Gravity does not mean how well a product does, just the affiliates promoting it. The gravity statistics are not what many people think they are. They are not a good guide to go off.

      Anything under gravity 30 normally does better for us anyway. But again it comes down to the sales copy, offer, and where you are getting traffic from.

      Hope this helps.

        Listen to these wise words.

    I personally use Clickbank, I use their platform to promote my own niche products. I find it to be very easy to use and valuable to my business. They have good reporting stats, and my checks are always on time.

    There have been a lot of bad things said about Clickbank, some I agree with. But most of the bad you hear about Clickbank is about the Internet Marketing products being promoted there. I have bought a few, and have to say, some are crap. But some have been very valuable in my training.

    Internet Marketing is just one niche of a whole lot of niches that Clickbank covers. Overall I see Clickbank as a good platform, whether your a Vendor or an Affiliate.

    I make my living with clickbank and membership sites.

    What you have to remember is that you will get alot of success if you get into listbuilding with clickbank stuff, and also giving away good content first to create trust with your prospects.

    That works for us really well, and gets lots of great results.

    Also article syndication and guest posting on high traffic sites for traffic is a great way to get traffic and people opting in to your funnels.

    I just gave away my whole business to you in a few sentences however after much testing this seems to work like gangbusters

    Clickbank is a great place to start. Easy to signup for and there are a lot of digital products to choose from. Like others have said, it all depends on how well the offers will convert. Use the research tools but also use common sense, if something doesn't look that great, it's probably not going to convert well.

    Although I still don't understand how Truth About Abs converts so well. I DO NOT like their sales page or video. Guess I'm not the target audience though

      Apparently I already ran out of "thanks" for the day, but (as so often) I agree with the whole of Celente's post above.

      There's no correlation between gravity figures and sales volumes, and none between gravity figures and conversion rates, either. High gravity figures don't necessarily indicate that affiliates are doing well by promoting a product. It's also common for products with gravities in single figures consistently to outsell products with gravities in three figures, and there are good and valid reasons for that being so.

      There's a learning-curve, as with anything.

      Specifically, there can be a tricky learning-curve with this one, for a couple of reasons ...

      (i) The general consensus of opinion on several relevant issues is often a somewhat misguided and ill-informed one (so "the blind are leading the blind", sometimes), and ...

      (ii) Many people achieve very small degrees of success without really ever understanding the fundamentals involved, and imagine that from that starting position, it's about "scaling it up", whereas in fact they'd quite often be a lot better off re-appraising the basics.

      But undoubtedly, some people are very successful indeed with it.

    I don't do a huge amount with ClickBank, but I do have a few SEO sites that give me a regular $50+ each month from CB.

    What I do love is that they always pay the correct amount, on time, every time. None of the crap that you need to deal with when it comes to CPA offers.

    Alexa as usual makes lots of sense.

    The learning curve with Click Bank can be formidable.

    Everyone looks at the huge commisions you can make per sale. I think this blinds a lot of people. You may get a random sale here or there but being able to make consistent sales is the where the real money is...

    You need to the know the product you are promoting. You need to know how to send people to the sales page. You need to work on your craft.

    I have found cb engine to be incredibly helpful in doing research, looking at trends, and generally finding out stats of the product I am promoting.

    While I do sell Clickbank products every month, I do better with Amazon.

    Are you wanting to use Clickbank as an affiliate or to develop and market your own product?

    Clickbank is something I've always heard about but never pay much attention too.

    Although they require the seller to pay quite a large sum of money to promote a product plus $1 and 7.5% transaction fee.. (and they can't add buyer's email to your autoresponder directly - PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong) I still think it's worth trying out Cb for many different reasons - because they are:

    1) Reliable,
    2) Proven success + Record,
    3) Great Affiliates Hangout,
    etc etc..

    You can take a look at the comparison chart from JVzoo here: Compare JVZoo.com to Clickbank and the rest of the Competition

    Personally, I think clickbank is a Gold-mine to both the affiliates and sellers, clickbank is where the big bucks are made (I've seen lots of people making serious money with it). It's certainly worth trying out clickbank! Nonetheless, like what Alexa said, there are some learning curves to do!

    I've promoted my first ever product on WSO recently and have found quite a bit of success with it and certainly NOT gonna stop promoting products anytime soon.

    I'll definitely try out Clickbank (Vendor, seller) someday.. and I highly encouraged everyone to do so.. I'm not saying that WSO or the warrior forum is bad and you shouldn't promote products here.. WSO is awesome and so is this forum and I certainly believed that there are lots of people making money merely from this forum, but it's bad if you rely entirely on wf alone.. Bad bad bad!

    It's good to try out new things! Especially you know when you can make some serious money with it - you know "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing!"

    So back to your question: Success with clickbank???

    Answer: Not yet.. but someday I definitely will (just a matter of time)

    Thanks and God bless,

    Congratulations on those who have seen success with Clickbank already..

    Regards,
    Jeremiah

    Clickbank is a gold mine and I love the fact that you don't need to deal with PayPal directly when you are a seller there. Millions are to be made on that page, in the long run as an affiliate, much faster if you do it right as a seller. Definitely something to look into and get to know well; I think the collective response of the people on this thread speaks for itself, and I happily agree
