    I wouldn't switch to CJ after clicbank. CJ is very inflexible and snobby! Plus the commissions are nothing compared to Clickbank! Yes the quality is much better but are you in IM to make money or to make commissions? :)

    I'm a fan of CJ. They have a great affiliate program and lots of great CPA offers (high paying, too). Always make payments on time, and tracking is relatively good. Unlike Clickbank, they have tons of brick-and-mortar affiliate programs... not just digital products. I recommend em'!

    I am with CJ. As someone said above, it is harder to make money with CJ. You would need to work a lot harder. The advantage of CJ is that you can become an affiliate of the major retailers and companies.
    Clickbank is more flexible.

    I would just recommend with sticking to whats making you money. Why bother to check out another affiliate market place? Click bank is solid due to what they are good at, its like saying I rather use yahoo than google. When the clear choice should be google to use for, when it comes to searches.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I feel like Clickbank has a lot of scammy products. Don't get me wrong, I started promoting a couple of them early on in getting into affiliate marketing. I quickly found out that if I was embarrassed to tell close friends and family about the product, that it was equally as hard to sale it well online. I now hold a general rule that I won't promote anything I don't believe in. It doesn't mean that I have to own everything I promote, but if I had the need to buy it, I would. I really prefer marketing tangible products and high quality services. I assume lots of people searching online have the same feelings I do and it will only hurt my conversions.

    As for Commission Junction... I've been with them for several years now but no longer actively promote any products there. While I was receiving checks regularly, I found that payments were behind considerably. Still, I would prefer marketing their products over most of what Clickbank has. (I hate eBooks for the most part)

    Don't fix it if its not broken. CJ is a lot more difficult to work with, that I can assure you.

    Thankyou my friend, I would not be leaving clickbank as that is where I make most of my income, but I just fancied trying a new digital retailer.

    Thankyou for the advice Louis D

    Really? Guess I should stop, then.

    CJ is just "different." Not more difficult. If anything I'm getting tired of the junky / overhyped products that flood the CB marketplace. Commission Junction is a nice alternative to these types of products.

    I use CJ with my Wordpress site because I have a plugin called Moneypress that easily integrates automatic CJ feeds. It's a breeze and requires almost no maintenance.

    If you are doing that well with Clickbank alone I would stick with that. I signed up for CJ but decided not to use my account after so many were talking about the forever payment. SMH I can't deal with that.

    CJ is probably the best place, if you consider the quality of advertisers. You have only top merchants here, due to their relatively tough requirements for affiliates. The result is, you get to promote the best products and you can recommend them without losing your integrity and trust of your visitors. Totally unlike selling crap ebooks on ClickBank.

    One disadavantge with CJ is that their coupon feed / API is just basic and nowhere near competitors like shareasale and Linkshsare.

    CJ can make you a millionaire, if you have the right traffic. It is also possible that you will struggle to make few sales a month. Basically you need to concentrate on niche of your choice, generate traffic and see which network / site can help you monitize it maximum. One can always use CJ along with other networks. It is not about network, it is all about finding the right niche, generating traffic and merchants who will convert it best.

    Truly, CJ gives great advantage of cooperation with leading companies of the Web and gains you a positive reputation among visitors and customers of advertising quality products.
    Great chance to make high profits, however requires outstanding knowledge of a niche.
