Hi Brad and welcome to our fun little house. have fun , and dont keep your questions to yourself.
The first mistake you made is right ther in your post. choosing a niche you are not interested in. although it has been proven to be effective, and i am doing so myself with a jetpack site, the only people who i know that have succeeded in a niche that they arent interested in are people who outsource all the writing.
look for a topic that you are interested in or else hire a writer to create your content.
usually big name brands like Toy Story wont let you use their name, and will actually take legal action against you for trademark infringement. if it is not a trademarked name then it is OK, but if there is a trademark, you cant use it.
I understand those clickbank fees. however, if you choose a niche that you are interested in, and focus on it, you can overcome that barrier.
That being said, you can still get some decent commissions on physical products. I started up a site a few months ago on woodworking. with 10 years as a professional carpenter/ custom cabinet maker, I have a lot of knowledge and passion in the niche.
I promote a variety of clickbank products with plans and blueprints as well as top tools via amazon. the tools are expensive enough that I get a decent commission for the work to promote them, and i do it on an AB style site.
Your Focus Determines Your Reality
