I Think It's Time To Quit Clickbank

Discussion in 'ClickBank' started by sirjorgeofculver, Jan 9, 2014.

    I managed to find a legit traffic loophole for clickbank.

    Targeted traffic, interesting niche, high gravity, high "supposedly" sale through, and what happens when you send 1,000 hops to the page?

    Mind you, to get past the initial page, users have to submit a name and email addres:

    http://sirjorgeofculver.blogspot.com/2014/01/1000-clickbank-hops-not-1-sale.html

    Not 1 sale. Over 1,000 hops! This is just 9 days. Just 9 days!

    Insanity, right?

    Clickbank is the paradise if you sell a product related to some niches,
    and a good place to grab the eyeballs of super affiliates,
    but you have to motivate them, as they do a good job of preselling your offer

    as an affiliate exploring, this can be a costly experience

    in fact all my favorite and higest converting offers with digital product, related to offers i found outside of clickbank

    the best program to promote is the one, i found out by searching for a specific problem

    and the one with high commission, i promoted a datin gproduct that offered 200% commission on the initial sale, that was converting at 1 sales for every 25 visitors

    the source of traffic is crucial in the process

    i also tested the most rubbish source of traffic, and in one crazy inexpensive test was driving 100k visitors in a page with Zero sale

    there are a lot of fake traffic providers

    I'm sorry you've had this experience!

    I use CB as a publisher and an advertiser and you do run across these problems from time to time.

    I'm sure you've already looked at every possible way to improve (or get) conversions, so I can only suggest what I do in times like this:

    - Review my traffic source;
    - Review my landing page.

    I hope things improve!

    I suggest that we have to have good quality traffic instead of trying to get clicks from anywhere

    I suggest you don't just insinuate the traffic is bad.

    I got all traffic from a good source.

    I was promoting a job for artists to artists that are looking for a job.

    In order for the hops to get to the order page, they would have to submit a name and a verified email, after they clicked on an interstitial landing page that I designed.

    So that's 3 click throughs to get to the order page. That would insinuate GOOD traffic. If it was bad traffic, the bounce rate would've been 99% and the user would spend less than 30 seconds on the page.

    I tried real traffic. No shortcuts. 100% legit traffic. My experiment was to see if these things are as legit as they say.

    This happens! I've nearly slip test over & over my Landing Page on Google Adwords! No sell, I've lose around $500+. I find miracle that many people still do old trick & generate income. I know one person, which make $14K to $15K per month with clickbank, he never reveal his technique but my point is, their are still people who make money with clickbank. I've lose my hope & move to CPL, which is great compare to clickbank for me!

    I got screenshot - http://prntscr.com/2hwxen

    You're getting traffic to your site. That's the first step. Of course, the quality of traffic also matters, as someone mentioned. Either you need to make sure the content you're promoting to get the traffic entices people for the right reason, or you have to search for a product the customers actually want.

    Can you describe, what those source are? I've deal with many type of traffic ( as seller & buyer ). BTW bounce rate doesn't actually use to measure BAD or GOOD traffic, their are loops where seller can do trick. Let us know, what those source are & how you got your hand on traffic.

    Here's the deal.

    I found a clickbank product that is offering a job.

    I then created several ads on job boards explaining the opportunity with a link to my landing page.

    The landing page has 3 ways to jump out. You can click an ad, you can hit the "click here" button, or you could hit a banner.

    From there, the person lands on the ClickBank product page. That page requires Name and Password to proceed, otherwise they do not see anything.

    The numbers show a good portion of the visitors go past the first page and into the second, leave their email etc. I've placed a screen grab on my blog with the link above.

    The experiment is this:

    Connect Job Seekers with a Job via Clickbank

    That's why the immense traffic.

    Meanwhile, the same tactic has driven my adsense earnings to $3 - $5 per day on a different site. Traffic generation from job seekers is legit, 100% real, targeted traffic.

    User A is looking for a job. They see ad explaining opportunity (no scam, no lies, fully explained resource), and click through. User A sees my landing page and clicks through to get further informed, and then eventually gets to an order page.

    I see what you mean about the traffic being good..... okay. I misunderstood. Hopefully this works well for you in the near future.

    hi,
    CB is still give me some money,,

    and its great finally you got 3 sales,,
    just scale it up,,

    lets think to long term business,
    if you can create a squeze page, and put your autoresponder, you can collect email from your visitors,
    and you can promote as many offers you can, with your niche,,

    its will work very well,,

    I'm considering scaling, but at the same time, I'm limited to where I can post for free. Plus cities, and I don't want to get lost in the shuffle or "ghosted" on some of these job sites.

    I've had results like yours before 1000s of hits sent 0 conversion. But I also got results where I've sent 100 hits and got 5 sales. Don't give up. Clickbank is still huge and is still gonna continue to make people money.

    Make sure you use a landing page. Also cheap traffic isn't gonna work.

    yeah, its growing dude :)

    on my experience,
    after i got 1st payment using free traffic,
    i am invested it on paid traffic,

    but before jump to paid traffic,
    you need to optimize your free traffic,
    and if you already got some capital, you can try paid traffic,

    hello
    there is two things i want to talk about it
    this is my reporting analyses state for last 2 month's
    100,000 Hop Count .. 3337 impression count ... 27 order form server calls ... 1 sale ???

    i wondered !! is possible that 27 person entered there credit card info or there paypal account and the transaction fail
    here is possible things causing this state

    1- there is some thing is wrong in yours payment system
    2- vendor is cheating by but code in there website to steal sales

    they must check their pay system for any issues



    second thing
    there many vendor are stealing sales from affiliates
    for example
    vendor (hcb25)
    i try to visit his site with my affiliate id
    when i clicked sign up i redirect to a page
    there is two prices
    Dugi In-Game Guides ($47 with one year updates) that lead to clickbank payment page with my id as a affiliate

    another price
    Dugi Gold Academy ($30.00)that lead to clickbank payment page with none affiliate

    i lead thousands of traffic to this vendor in last months
    and iam sure i made a lot of sales to him without receive any commission


    many many server calls without any sales
    vendors steals my sales
    yours security team must updated
    now i start that i Wasted my time with clickbank
    thank you
