Clickbank As A Researcher?

Postby Griffin Lilly Jr » Wed May 24, 2006 4:32 pm

Aloha everyone,

I was wondering if one could figure out niche markets by looking at Clickbank's Marketplace and/or Linkshare, etc? :?:

Absolutely. In fact, the *Underachiever Method* popularized by Frank Kern and Ed Dale focuses on Clickbank to farm profitable ideas. If you do a Google Search on *Underachiever* you'll likely find a few free videos that detail how-to do it. They have some metrics they've worked out, but it seemed logical when I watched it.

I did a seminar with Ed last year in London and he's obviously a smart guy, but he understands that there's a lot more money in "selling picks and shovels" than digging for the gold yourself. He's a great salesman, but I do think he over does it on how "easy it is" to make money on the web - it ain't.

Additionally, even though Frank Kern has had some run-ins with the FTC from some of his Internet businesses - the materal is actually pretty good, just very expensive. I picked up a copy on eBay for way under *list* price.

Another great source of ideas is eBay. Search for "how-to" and "learn to" in different sections and see what selling. I've got some sources of online lists of magazines too - this is a great source for niches as well. I'll dig up it up and post it a bit later...

Yes, and it's a very smart and effective technique to find lots of high demand, highly profitable niche markets and product ideas.

Doing a niche research at ClickBank can be even better than using Google, because 99% of people who are selling their products at ClickBank are usually savy Internet marketers with a good knowledge of Internet marketing.

So most probably they have done a complete research about the topic they have chosen before creating their product and have found out it's high demand and very profitable.

Now compare it to Google where the results for a specific keyword will bring you a list of websites whose owners might not know anything about market research.

That's why I think the markets and ideas you get from ClickBank are much more reliable and profitable.

And what if ClickBank does not have....

What if I have something of interest to me for a product, but no one is currently offering it. After all, someone has to be first.

What is the best research avenue for that? I am using Keyword Elite as well as NicheBot 2 for my research.

Comments anyone?

There are two reasons that may be the case: 1) its not a profitable niche, or 2) you truly are the first to think of it. The most common way to determine which is the case is to put up a "flycatcher page" prior to developing and launching an actual product. You should be able to search that term for more details on it.

Thanks for the tip

I have not heard the term "flycatcher page" before, and I've been around for quite a while. I guess I've not been around the right circle.

Thanks again, Ray

flycatcher page is something that the underacheivers speak about. As far as i know They talk about all this in the 30 day challenge which is free and is very educative.

ClickBank is not bad, and also if you want to decide whether or not a particular product is worth to promote, here's what you can do:


Go to CBtrends - cbtrends.com

click on "performance tracking"

Enter the vendor ID into the box

And click on Get Performance Data
