Finding Profitable Niches in Clickbank and Commission Junction [Video]

by Steve Scott | Join Him On Facebook

Today we’re going to continue our video series that teaches different Internet Marketing techniques. In last week’s clip, I showed a video about how to do keyword research with Google Adwords. The idea here is you can use this free tool to find phrases people are using to find information. And once you have a collection of quality keywords, you can start look into potential niches.

In these videos we’re going to take what you learned about keywords and use it to find a profitable niche. Specifically, I want to focus on two of the major affiliate networks- Clickbank and Commission Junction. Clickbank is the best place to find top rated digital products and Commission Junction is a great resource for finding physical products to promote.

In my opinion, I think it’s important to look at both sites when you’re researching a potential niche. The truth is some niches are more profitable if you promote a physical good and others are great for providing information. And you never will really know this until you do your research.

Anyway, I found the following videos on YouTube. While they’re not exactly professional, both give an excellent overview of how you can do research a niche on both sites:

How to Find a Niche on Commission Junction (CJ)

Take Action. Get Results.

As an aspiring internet marketer, I’m really enjoying your insights into this subject. I write some on this subject too. It’s always good to learn from someone who is successful.

Thanks Ray. Honestly, I believe that doing niche research is one of the most important parts of this process. You do it right, and you’ll be successful.

Hey Scott — Have you had luck promoting any affiliate products? I’m working on that now. By the way, love the rss icon on the right, looks like he’s reading while he’s taking a dump.

Haha. That’s kind of what I thought. Actually I might replace these with something a little more professional.

Yes, I’ve had great success in the one niche I’m in. But now with this site, I’m trying something completely different. Hopefully applying the same principles here will bring good results.

Hey thanks for the compliment. The way I figure things is by giving away quality content, people will be more likely to buy something if (when) I start to make product recommendations.

I’ve received some links and a few trackbacks, but primarily I’m concerned with simply building up my audience.

Ray is an aspiring internet marketer. Mike is the Internet Marketing Wannabe. So am I! I was going to check Click Bank this week. Having read this post, you’ve pointed me to the right direction. In the meantime, just like you, I’m focused on building up my audience too.

Interesting – all 3 CommentLuv’s so far are all reviews.

Thanks Scott. Have a good one.

Gines,

I think you’re on the right path. When you start a blog, I think it’s more important to worry about basic readership than it is to go after money. In the long run, you’ll have a much more successful blog.

Anyway, definitely check out Clickbank. That is one of the better places to start when it comes to affiliate marketing.

I’ve found cb-analytics.com to be a really useful site for getting the low down on clickbank products and following trends on clickbank. It gives you an idea of the background of cb products that makes decision making easier. For example, a newly released product might have a high gravity because its been the focus of a successful launch, but might then quickly fade away if it’s not up to scratch. You can also see the refund rates for products, and eliminate any that are getting a lot of chargebacks. You can also add products to a watch list and see how they do over a few weeks before committing to promoting them, so you don’t inadventently push something that then takes a nose dive and lose trust with your readers.
