I found Clickbank my self years ago in my searching the internet for affiliate programs that I could review. Back then it was a whole lot easier to make money through affiliate marketing.
There was way less competition, and the internet was still evolving. You did not need as much marketing knowledge. Most people who were coming online were not looking to make extra money. They were fascinated by the internet and saw it as the future of buying stuff from the comfort of their home.
There was way more buyers than sellers.
Fast forward to 2021 and what you will find is people are coming online in droves looking to make extra money from home.
With the creation of Social networks like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and Mobile Phones that access the internet, everything is public knowledge.
They are seeing the lifestyle some of these top affiliate marketers have created, and they now want a piece of the action.
The internet is way more accessible now, once upon a time all you had was a dial up connection that made your phone line busy. Technology is changing so fast, that some of you reading this have never even experienced dial up connections and the old slow computers..
You had to have a desktop computer back then to get online. Today the technology fits in the palm of your hand..

Every major affiliate programs have their pros and cons.
One of which can be product selection and quality of products that are available to sell.
We always like to be part of several affiliate programs at one time, this way we always have options available to us.
As an example we are also part of the Fiver affiliate program, as Fiver has more service type products we can sell that ClickBank does not have.
You will learn as you master marketing, that you need a bit of variety like this, to be able to maximize your earnings and scale them. Because not all of your contacts, leads and customers will only buy one type of product.
