That's crazy. Clickbank sales through TE's!.. What sort of products were you promoting (low cost?), and why did you stop... did it start getting flooded etc..?
I was promoting 1st Promotion Clickbank Mall which had a wide selection of products and services owned by Rick and Ron Davies back in the day. This was when Clickbank use to send affiliate notifications when sales was made.
In fact, Ron and Rick use to believe that Traffic Exchanges was a waste of time and efforts themselves and advise their members to stay away from TE's Exchanges. They changed their tune when I told them I was making sales with their Clickbank Mall. In fact, they let me be the sole moderator of their Free Advertising Methods Forum. The rest is history!
Traffic Exchanges was the first Free Advertising Methods that I used and I then started having success with other FREE advertising methods.
While promoting Clickbank mall I noticed that people was buying advertising products and services from the mall instead of money making opportunities. So, I dished promoting money making opportunities and started promoting advertising products.
Now, I mostly promote advertising programs that people can join for free with the options to upgrade if they need or want more benefits and commissions.
Back in the day, I proved the Gurus and Experts wrong over and over using Free Adverting Methods they say don't work and a waste of time and efforts.
