Any good clickbank products out there?

28 replies
Hi there,

After searching the market place I just cannot seem to find any legit product in clickbank. Anyone of you has something to suggest?

May be I do not know how to search? I do not want to scam peoplw with something that do not work. I have tried the registry cleaners although I have make sales it seems to me that they are not that good.

    There are probably more "legit" products on CB than scams. Honestly, people hate to hear it, but the best way to tell if a product will live up to it's claims is to buy it and put it into use. Barring that, do research on the topic to see what kind of information is out there(for example, you can probably find enough information on registry cleaners, by reading tech sites, to decided if they are worth buying and running).

    Respectfully,
    Kevin

    I agree Kevin. All programs are going to come with hype-that's just how it is. If you do a little research and common sense you can usually read between the lines enough to see if it is worth the buy.

    Google CB Engine, they collect data from CB marketplace and give you tons of statistics about every product.

    My advice to you is to start with products that have a high gravity. No matter the fact you'll have a lot of competition, but when starting out it's important you promote a product that proved to convert. That way you're sure you won't have a "bad link" in your funnel, ie. the sales page of the merchant over which you have no control.

    Then create a pre-sell page and advertise on Google. Or do article marketing to drive traffic.

    My advice is to look for products that have more than 100 gravity (you can expect they convert 1%) and which pay at least $30 in commissions. You'll find out that there aren't many products that fit the criteria, but just pick one and test it out. These product probably have a good affiliate center where they have lot's of promotional tools you can use and quickly have everything set up.

    There's a great $97 course called Commission Blueprint. I'm a member and I love that course - it's simple and you can start earning money quickly. The only requirement is that you're willing to spend at least $300 on Google to drive traffic and to test your campaign.

    Take care, hope this helps!

    there are many guides that do work, but the stuff that sells is usually the scammy stuff.

    people are idiots and buy it, ignore the ethics, if you won't make the money someone else will take your place.

    I have to agree that if you are serious about being an affiliate you should buy the product. It usually isn't that expensive if you use your own link. And after you have the product you can write up some legitimate reviews. I have to say that a lot of my sales are from people looking for information on the specific product and they come to my review.

    It is tough though, it took me awhile to find products that I could stand behind. It will help to start with higher gravity.

        I don't agree at all about aiming for products with gravity over 100. These are the most competitive ones, and their high sales may be down to professional affiliates who have mastered Goodle Adwords and are repeatedly and reliably spending $900 to earn $1,200 every day more or less on automation. When you can do that confidently, obviously you do it as often as you can. But it's no way to start when you're not sure where you're going, because the learning-curve can be really expensive. For myself, I would aim for products with gravity more like 15 - 50.

        Gravity does not in itself tell you anything about the conversion-rate. Some products have enormous gravity because people are throwing huge traffic at them, and the high sales can easily mislead people.

        Opinions about this will differ!
        Hi alexa,

        here's a different opinion.

        Although I agree with you, I think picking products with 100+ gravity is a better choice when beginning than picking lower ones. I agree higher gravity doesn't mean higher conversion rate, but it definitely means it's more likely to convert at 1%. It only means it's more probable that the offer is converting at all as opposed to not converting at all. And from my experience, none of the 100+ gravity products performed below 1%.

        Also buying products is a good way to see the quality of the product, but that's just half of the story. The other is how well the merchant can close the sale. And you can't know that unless you test it out.

        I mean, that's only what has been working for me when I started out. I used this data to estimate if the campaign has any sense. For example, I put an estimate of 1% conversion for products in the range of 100-200. Then I go and see how much clicks could I get on the main kws for each day and what is the average CPC. If the average visitor value is greater than average CPC, I consider this product worthwhile for testing it out. Then I decide I'll spend $500 on that campaign. If I break even after spending $500 then I have a winner. I just need to work on improving and testing my ads and my landing page.

        Of course, today when I have more experience, I pick lower gravity products that are slowly improving over time.

        All in all, I think that's a great way to see if the product is performing or not. Because when you're starting out, you won't have a perfect landing page or ad copy. So to be sure nothing else is non-perfect in your funnel, I think you should pick higher gravity products.

        Looking forward to your reply alexa.

        Take care everybody,

        ~Davor

      Sounds like a conduit approach. Very smart marketer here

    Generally I have found products outside the IM niche to be legit (or atleast they are not an outright scam), however there are some legit IM products too.

    Everyone's definition of what is legit and what isn't may vary, so if you are looking to sell products that you're happy with, there is no other option but to try the product and decide for yourself on whether it is legit or not.

    The next best thing would be to look at reviews of the products and see if people are satisfied with the product.

    What I have found is that it pays to recommend a product to your subscribers. Build a list and build a relationship with your list and then they will be much more likely to buy a product that you recommend to them.

    My other favorite way to promote affiliate products is by article marketing. Write as many articles as you can about the product and at the end of every article make sure there is a link back to your landing page or blog or review page.

    I'm going a different direction and saying "no". I decided to stop trying to market Clickbank products last month. I'd been trying to market them for close to 4 years, and they report that I've never even had a click, let alone made a sale. Yet, I know people who told me they had purchased something based on a recommendation of mine. I never heard anything back from any of my queries, so I figured it was time to move on the use my internet real estate for other things.

    That's odd Mitch,
    Were you using some sort of link masking or redirect script? It could very well have been a cookie not being dropped issue, or the people who said they purchased through your link may not have (inadvertently or otherwise). As for CB not getting back to you, that's also odd. I've had to contact CB a couple of times and every time I received a courteous response.

    Finally, CB does have a rule in place stating that you must have purchases through at least 5 different sources before they'll release a paycheck, so maybe the people who purchased through your link didn't meet those requirements.

    As for the original query, I've found a number of products that are legitimate on CB. I'll just say the IM/AM (internet/affiliate marketing) niches tend to be difficult because most marketers who aren't new to the game will just drop in their own CB ID and purchase through their own link for the discount (yes, this happens far more than one things). So, I've found it's best to promote products outside of those niches and when I do promote a product within the niche, I tend to offer some sort of bonus/supplement to solicit purchases through my link.

    Oh and another thing. On CBEngine they estimate the refund rate of each product. You can use it to estimate the actual quality of the product. I think 3% is an average for all products, any number below that should be a big warning sign.

    Also you can rank products in the same niche (and in the same price range) by their refund rate to estimate which one is better.

    I suggest you take a look at this post:

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...-research.html

    There is a link to a video in this post that will show you how to find hot markets/niches. Then you can narrow down your search on Clickbank to products that find within the hot markets/niches.

    Hope that helps.

      Hmmm.. interesting response here

      Firstly I'd like to ask what niche are you looking into as this is quite an important starting point.

      I personally don't use clickbank that often but I do research on it and get a lot of various information about which ones that seem most commonly and the interesting ones include

      Rocket Spanish in the Society/Culture niche section - it's one of those old stuffy like niches, but there are a few good products in there and Rocket Spanish seems like one and if I were to give it a out of 5 rating, it would be (4/5) rating. (Rocket Spanish Sample Course | Learn Spanish for free)

      Another interesting one is the PPC Web Spy - found in the business to business category. Basically it's a piece of software that allows Internet Marketers to secretly spy on their competitors keywords and uncover their Google Adwords keywords while browsing their website. It's one of those prodcuts that could side by side with people doing or looking to do Internet Marketing and need a product to promote - again probably a (3/5) or (4/5) rating. (Brad Callen's PPC Web Spy)

      Now in the Fun and Entertainment section, dating seems to be good niche, I don't know why, but a fellow marketer was telling me that "Guys Gets Girls" is a popular one, especialy since the sales pitch fun was certainly entertaining. (www.guysgetgirls.com) Again possibly a (4/5) rating

      And finally, there is one called "The Fancy Fillies System" - it's certainly an interesting one, and the pitch page is quite clear, well laid out and relies on facts rather than a lot of overblown claims, it might provide a bit of fresh air to your customers if they are getting bored with sales pitch page full or hyped up claims (Fancy Fillies Horse Racing System) I would rate this a (4/5) rating.

      There's probably plenty more out there that other fellow warrior members will recommend and best wishes with finding a good decent clickbank product

      PS: Oh and all the above links are direct general links and are NOT affiliate links - thanks

    you can google the internet to research on the product first, and from there gauge for yourself if this is a good product. but the best way i think it still you buy it and using it. before you can use the latter method, you need to also like the product and also selectively buy, as there are tonnes of stuffs out there for clickbank alone, and there is also cj and other sites out there with tonnes of affiliate products for sale

    Your statement about 'legit products' makes me wonder what niche you are in?
    And your definition of 'legit'?

    As with any affiliate site some products are going to be worse than others.
    I use CBEngine as others as mentioned and a few other research techniques to involved to describe here.
    I have found it very helpful to contact a product/site owner if they did not have a sample chapter or other helpful info on their affiliate page.
    I have several products there; the grocery site mentioned in my sig for one. And it is real information, in membership site format, for a specific niche.

    Also the fact some ClickBank members have multiple products under the same ClickBank ID makes finding all the possible products in a niche difficult. That is another reason to contact them.

    The quality there varies greatly but there are some products I've found that were very professionally done and had great content. Researching ClickBank products takes some time, but I've found it worth it for my niches.

    I would steer clear of the money making prodcuts on click bank as most don't deliver in my opinion and are more prone to scammers. Try to offer products that are more specialised and actually provide a direct benefit rather than an idea or concept.

    Thanks for CBEngine tip, it's really useful for a noobie.
    BTW - Are there any decent CB alternatives? why is it getting so much traction?
