Or maybe you've looked mostly at the IM-related and MMO-related products (for the sales of which - obviously enough - it's sometimes difficult to be paid all your commissions because people tend, understandably, to buy them through them own hoplinks rather than through the hoplinks of the referring affiliate), and ignored about 298 other niches represented there?
How to Make Money with Clickbank offers a good, basic overview to how Clickbank works and about what you, as an affiliate, have to do to leverage it to make money for you. You can't just throw up a squeeze page or website or send out a mass email and rake in money with Clickbank, no matter what the so-called "experts" tell you. It isn't that easy and, frankly, not every digital product is a good fit for Clickbank. Michael Greene offers up a reality based primer here that lays out what steps you need to take to successfully profit as a Clickbank affiliate but the rest is up to you.
Understanding the effectiveness of your affiliate program is crucial for sustainable success. Identifying your top-performing affiliate marketers, for example, can help you double-down on what’s working. Why are they so effective?

Work as an online interpreter or translator. If you’re fluent in a foreign language, it makes sense to look for work as an online interpreter or translator. Depending on your individual skillset, you could find work translating blog posts or eBooks, transcribing recorded lessons or speeches for clients, or translating through Skype or another online video service. And, thanks to the increased use of foreign languages in the United States, getting started could really pay off. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for interpreters and translators is expected to increase 17% nationally through 2026.
Using Fiverr is a great way to pick up work. Once you have signed up you can advertise your services. Fiver allows you to create your own gigs, whether you are offering web design, digital marketing, writing, or something else. You can choose how much you want to charge (it can be more than a fiver) and people will then contact you if they are interested in working with you. Fiverr will not only help you get experience if you are just starting off as a freelancer, but it will also help you earn some extra cash.
