Hi guys,

What niches do you think are the most difficult to succeed in? Post your failures in this thread! And remember to name your general niche.

For me property has been a horrible niche!

I had a really good idea - to make a website where you could find the best places in the UK to buy investment property.

I even built the site. It is (or was) at It will be up for another few weeks but then I've let the domain expire.

So what went wrong?

Two problems:

1. It's a hard niche and I didn't have the marketing know-how to make it a success.

2. The site had a lot of data heavy pages but not much in the way of actual content. And Google of course loves words.

What are the lessons we can learn from my mistakes?

VERY EASY - if you have a good idea and build a site with some nice data, start contacting newsrooms and try to get big links from major publications. Really I should have offered my data to the Daily Telegraph or Daily Mail. They are always hungry for good stories.

Been around since 2009 means you've had so much experience in this space. I'm really considering expanding into promoting products in other niches using paid ads but my limitation is that I don't know how to speak a second language.

I agree with you that low gravity shouldn't be a criterion for selecting products to promote as there are some uncompetitive products with very low gravity. I'll like to add some characteristics of products you shouldn't promote:

1. Clickbank products that have (external) ads on their sales page
2. Products with buy buttons that do not go to the Clickbank order page
3. Products that exaggerate their promises, especially financial promises. Promises like these will lead to high refund rates (most MMO products have refund rates over 20% in fact).
4. Unresponsive vendors. Before starting to promote a product, ALWAYS contact the vendor (ask for a review copy, or ask a question about the product, or just introduce yourself). If you get no reply within 48hours do NOT promote the product.

Recently, I came across a course created by Clickbank's current #1 affiliate that claims to teach people how to drive traffic to Clickbank offers using Facebook Ads. I've seen some good reviews and positive testimonies online about the course. Here's one

What do you think about the course?
