I am brand new to the clickbank affiliate marketing world, been doing it for about 3 weeks now so be gentle in your responses. I have made two sales, but I am dissatisfied that is all. Please allow me to tell you about my strategy and please critique it, tell me what I am doing right/wrong and how to make it better. I REALLY want to become a FT online marketer, but I am now doing very well at the moment. Here is my strategy:
Craigslist--I am marketing cashforsurveys.com through craigslist. I am offering under the jobs category. When people email me, I send them my CB link. I have had about 30 people email me and I have sent the CB link, but I have not made a single sale. I think that part of that has to do with the fact that getcashforsurveys.com makes the user pay a sign up fee which I think is BS because it's hard to make a conversion like that. I've heard the craigslist market for work from home jobs is great and the gravity on the getcashforsurveys product is high. I still think this strategy is solid, but I have received no sales from it and I have been doing it for a few weeks.
My second strategy is to market weight loss products through FB and twitter. I created new accounts solely for the purpose of marketing CB weight loss products. I go to groups and weight loss pages on FB and promote my links on the wall of site or comment on their posts. Sometime I send those people personal messages with my link. After a short while of doing this, I get messages that my link was reported as offensive and my account gets blocked. Very frustrating. My strategy with twitter is similar. I follow people who are into the weight loss niche and then I make tweets with my CB links and individually message people with the link. After doing that for a few minutes, my account became suspended and that is currently where I stand. I have no confidence with what I am doing.
Someone please help me. I have sunk many, many hours into this and have made two sales total, equaling about $40 dollars. I feel like I am working hard and NOT smart. I really want to work smart. Please assist, I would be quite grateful!
