Magtan, Looks like you joined Affilorama in March last year. I was really depressed back then :)
The only real advice I can give is to focus on what works for you. I'm pretty sure the only reason I've managed to get as far as I have is because I discovered the power of choosing the right niche.
People aren't going to buy very many ebooks on origami, gardening, or sandwich making. Why? Because they don't really have the driving motivation to whip out their credit card and solve a paper folding problem or a soil problem, or a deli meat problem.
People buy info products because they have big problems that keep them awake at night, in my experience. Things like their marriage is falling apart, they feel ashamed of how they look because they are overweight, or because their dog is vicious and almost hurt someone at the park.
Those are real problems that will drive your conversion rates up through the roof.
Add to this the fact that many of these niches could be potentially embarrassing to buy physical book at the store and you've got yourself a recipe for high conversions. After all, would rather walk up to a cashier at the store with a book about how you've got hemorrhoids or about how you can't get a date, or would you rather discreetly buy something like that online?
Anyway, that's probably the first step. Choosing the right niche.
Hope this helps.
