It’s not as easy as it looks. Here’s one guy’s experience:
I’ve been getting my ass handed to me by Google trying to promote "successful" clickbank products. Seems the product owner and one affiliate are making sales but not me even with good ctr and position. Tried direct linking and also landing page. Still no sales. I do believe you that this works, however, for every clickbank product that ranks fairly high it seems there are always other affiliates already kicking it. How does someone like me, a newbie, compete with the dozens of other affiliates, LIKE YOU? How many people can play this game like you and sustain numerous losing campaigns before a winner comes along? So far every product I’ve picked seems to have a few successful affiliates already, so what makes me think I can beat them (you) if they’re more savvy marketers than me? I really struggle with the selection process because it just seems like a roll of the dice
What’s hilarious is Andre Chaperon – full-time internet marketer since 2003 – spent a month working on a campaign and documenting. At the end of the day, he managed 18% ROI. He blames it on a mistake setting his PPC prices, but making a mistake seems to be part of the territory. There are a lot of things to go wrong.
For me, it’s like chess. A great way to practice hunting big game.
