Question to fellow Hubbers: Who on this site has successfully make money on Commission Junction and would you be willing to share your story of success with us?
I was going to ask this question myself a few days ago. I've been on CJ and havent made a dime yet. Keep thinking i'm doing something wrong. Same applies to my experience with CBank.
No. No success story yet.
BTW i see you changed your photo. Mmmmmmm nice!
Hi Viryabo - I have been on CJ for about 6 months and have not made any $ there yet either. it's my fault though b/c i have not been spending time on it. i have, however, done fine w/EPN. I finally made a few sales on CB and they've cut their 1st check for me. So, it seems it's not a scam after all!
I have before on CJ. From personal experience ClickBank and CJ are the best affiliate marketplaces. CJ has a much larger range of products to promote and also offers per-lead commissions, however this makes it harder to select worthwhile programs, and most of them require manual approval.
I have made money from CJs..They have such a wide range of products to suit all, and am useing them much more as my earning are slowly increasing with them!
This hub will give you some ideas on how much people are making you may find useful!
Internet Marketing Programs: Earning Statistics
Compu-Smart - GREAT - Just skimmed through your hub and will BOOKMARK it. I'm glad I made this post as I see you're a great guy to know when it comes to affiliate marketing. Thanks so much, david
I made money through CJ affiliate programs years ago, but not recently as the market I was in became too competitive. Would you believe I handcoded a 20 page site in HTML (learnt from a book!) put the site up and let it mature for about two months. When the traffic was up to about 250-300 a day I applied to CJ and was accepted because the site had credibility. It made me about $100 a month for about a year before the niche got overcrowded.
The same principles apply today really. If you develop a site or blog based on a niche, fill it with 20 pages or so of original content and build the traffic, then you'll probably get accepted for almost any affiliate program (through CJ, or others).
But most of us (me included sometimes) want to get on with it and don't develop the site before monetizing it.
dawei888 - Correct. But that takes us back to the perpetual subject of keyword research. If it is thorough, and the site has enough pages for keywords that are thought to be worthwhile, a few pages may be a waste of time but most should be OK. So it's unlikely to be a complete waste of time. And you can continue and add new pages based on ongoing keyword research to develop the site and replace those that fail. But it all takes time!
I tried to apply to Commission Junction but I could never get past the section on tax - I tried following the instructions for international applicants but it simply kept rejecting me, so I gave up.
Any other non-US Hubbers with CJ and how on earth did you get your application in?
If you like to promote scam - yes. It's very hard to find a product there that is not scam and at the same time worth promoting. But possible though
Well, perhaps in the "work at home" section there may be programs which come very close to being definable as "scam" ... I guess. In fact I myself have purchased nearly 30 such e-books and would not declare any one of them as total scam. It is true that sometimes the introductory phrases in the splash pages do not justify the end result. However the disclaimer in every product does the needful as it clearly states that results could vary from individual to individual. And to top it all ... there is a money back guarantee on every ClickBank product!
I joined Clickbank at one time, but I didn't stay long. There is no way I'm going to promote a product unless I know it's good value. I can't tell whether an ebook is good unless I buy it. I know I could get my money back but it's still a hassle and I can't see the point. I think most people are suspicious of ebooks these days anyway.

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:

How about adding a new commission junction module. Same as amazon but you can pull in products sold in commission junction into your hubs.May be modules for a few other affiliate vendors.
