I will take my go at the questions. I hope some staff or other member can validate them.
I was wondering if there are any new products added at clickbank on regular basis?
Yes, very regularly. Sign up to http://cbengine.com
and you will get a list on biweekly basis of new products added. Typically 100+ products get added or relisted.
Are there different products now then let's say, 1 year ago?
Yep, I added a product of my own if that helps and its selling good too ( If that helps ;) ). Clickbank marketplace is quite dynamic. Again same as above, you can see a list at cbengine.com.
Are some products going better now then months ago?
Yep, and there are some that are doing worse too :(. Its a dynamic market, product keep getting in and out. A good product attracts a lot of competition both from affiliates and other vendors who jump into same niche. So there are products that move up and down on sales graph. You need to watch the product launches etc and update your site and rankings accordingly. Every product launch is a good time to make money for affiliates. There are some very serious marketers on clickbank and it keeps the market moving on for better.
Trying to find affiliate products that make sense in my context. I intuitively concurr with Mark's recommendations on gravity and income, so I have gone thru Clickbank on the basis of +30 gravity and +$10 earnings. Found only 180 unique products with very little variety;
Frankly speaking there are a lot of products on clickbank that sell quite well but have low gravities. Mark gave those numbers as the safe side number for newbies but if you stick by those numbers alone than you are limiting your choices very very seriously. Its easier to rank for lower gravity product (lower competition) and you can scale up multiple sites fast. hmm on second thoughts this strategy is based around assumption that you are experienced in putting up mini sites and can put up multiple mini sites based around products and not niches.
Found only 180 unique products with very little variety;
- By my experience that is a good enough number to start with :). You need only 3-4 products to hit the first goal of 50 usd a week. You can always jump onto other networks once you understand the basic dynamics of affiliate marketing.
I hope that helps, excuse my assumptions ;)
