    I would suggest ClickBank but it doesn't mean that the others platforms are not good. I just seldomly promote products from other affiliate programs.

    For me, it's a no-brainer....I've always made the most money selling quality software products.

    Software is an 'evergreen' product, and selling it at a higher price point is easy, which means commissions are also so much higher.

    And refunds are extremely low (and in most cases are non-existent)

    I'd much rather be selling a $67 - $97 software product, than trying to make a living selling dime-sale WSO's

    Affiliate networks with health products are moneymakers for me and recently I discovered the power of a local affiliate network I didn't even know existed. Much easier to sell something to my local buyer in my own language than to someone overseas.

    I been using amazon for almost a decade now to make money, it's not millions but I'm doing very well with it and steady income for a long time. I do also build a lot of stores for my clients and that also generates me extra income and keeps them happy.

    I do sell some products from Commission Junction but no steady sales but I just don't have the time to focus since dealing with amazon is a full time job.

    I am using MaxBounty to promote gaming niche, the money is not bad, and the payroll is strict. I used to make money on ClickBank, but somehow the product gets really slow, so I try different method to do it. Well, I have tried 3 different affiliate, and MaxBounty is by far the best one.

    It's hard to beat ClickBank.

    Every Tuesday night at midnight they deposit a big chunk of change into my bank account! I love it!

      Do have a website or a blog that you use to plave Clickbank Products? Or do you use a domain and redirect to the Clickbank product?

        I have a blog with content pages that link to ClickBank offers.

        The blog (WordPress) is set up in different sections. Each section has a context-sensitive sidebar that includes an Opt-In for a related offer. Each page has been built based on keywords that I got from the affiliate JV page.

        Each offer has a mailing list (GetResponse). I use 2nd tier PPC to drive traffic to squeeze pages. So I have people signing up from the sidebar and the squeeze pages. I built lengthy AutoResponder series that 'build trust' and explain how the product would help. They include links to the Video Sales Pages from the vendor.

        I started the blog on October 1st and was able to switch to Direct Deposit in January. The ClickBank income is $1,000 a week now.

        Keep in mind I was a professional SEO and marketer for B2B products since 2003 before I started on this. The main reason I did was because I always read the Warrior Forum and became convinced that I was missing out on big money with affiliate marketing.

        Everything I've done I learned right here in this forum. I didn't pay for any training or courses. Alexa Smith and myob have laid down numerous posts about the best way to be affiliates. I followed a lot of what they said to a tee. The only thing I haven't done is 'article syndication.' The main reason is because I have a very strong 'SEO network' that allows me to compete in very competitive terms. If you don't have this, then I would say follow Alexa and myob's blueprint to the tee for great success.

        In summary:
        • Don't just build 'thin affiliate sites' that only do 'product reviews.'
        • Learn the keywords that the affiliate provides.
        • Use a combination of PPC and SEO (and social and video marketing if you're good at them) to drive people to blog posts or to squeeze pages.
        • Use your blog posts to 'pre-sell'
        • Use your emails to build trust and pre-sell
        • Never 'direct link' to an affiliate offer

        Hope this helps!

          This is inspiring. I been doing the shopzilla thing for a while. I made moneywith them. But they keep messing with the commissions as time goes on.

    For me, it's Clickbank, with my products....however, don't get too caught up on whether it is amazon, clickbank or whaever. It's much more about building a relationship with prospects, giving them value up front, and then placing an offer in front of them that is relevant to their want or need.

    A friend of mine has a web property that generates appox $4,000.00 on 2 mil pv. It is hard to imagine any other service generating that much, but I get most of my money from selling which is a combo of online and off line such as {Google Adwords, Craigslist, newspapers, and magazines}.

    At the moment, it's my ghostwriting site but I am planning to make Amazon + Squidoo take over soon! Before I plucked up the courage to write for others, I started article directory marketing/ bum marketing and I was doing nicely but as you may know, this isn't a sustainable business model!

    So, ghostwriting at the moment and Amazon later on! Keep my fingers crossed! Product creation at some point too!

    Thanks

    My own products. I'm in a few niches, and I only make real money with my own products. I have both digital and physical products. The margins on the digital are awesome, but it is fun to have a physical product as well.

    For me, nothing beats having your own products.

      How is Clickbanks CTR? Google has those big ugly arrows on their ads now. I have noticed a change because of it.

    For content lock with CPA is my major income. Creating quality products which are not willing to be sold but unlocked in order to get the products. More hungry buyers who are not willing to use their cards, more unlocks existent.

    Commissions from local businesses who pay me for new business I send them.
    Recurring commissions from a private software referral arrangement I set up with a software company.

    In both instances, I went out and negotiated private referral deals where the commissions are very high ($250 to $1,000 + for local referrals) or recurring (for software). I have no affiliate competition and both offerings are in very niche industries which means there is little competition overall, yet there is consistent demand.

    Otherwise, I use a number of aff networks including CJ, SAS, Clickbank and several in-house programs for select merchants I promote.

    Hy,

    @PerformanceMan; Do you make only seo to get traffic or you make guest posting on related blogs/website too to get target traffic? (say 1-2 posts every week)

    So when I read this many warrior says this, to make an higher income as an affiliate example your 1000$ every week, this is possible only with building a list, but for this income you need a huge list. I'm sure you need more than 1000 people in a list to make this income.

    On the other site,there are many affiliates who makes good money on 1 squidoo lens (they build many different niche lenses) or with sniper sites, they not build a list, but they make good money too, ok no 1000$ in a week, but sure a few hundred dollars every month on each squidoo lens or sniper niche site.

    CPA with content lock is a great thing to use. But your product really needs to be top of the line so people will go through the hassle of unlocking it. Still, nothing beats content lock imo.
