    Most Proven Verticals in Affiliate Marketing
    What are the most proven verticals in affiliate marketing today? There are many categories that have fared well in the past, and many more which I think are the trends for the future (like online grocery stores). But right now, what are the categories you feel have proven themselves to have sticking power through the times?

    Real estate has been a good one. Especially foreclosures with the current market and economic state. Not to be negative, but foreclosures do provide affordable housing options for first-time buyers.

    I see more and more food sites busting up, but at the same time they all seem to be the same. None have really taken anything to the next level (that I've seen, at least).

    I think all sectors will suffer and nothing is a bubble.

    Have to go with Haiko, "Apparel, Toys, Movies, Books, (maybe) Electronics"
    I have to add sports..

    Actually there are "bubbles" three off the top of my head are healthcare, clothing and food.

    I think clothing and accessories, at the right price point (not the premium brand outlets) are pretty good. Why do you think fragrances are a proven category? Even in this climate? I was thinking actually lead programs might do especially well now... free trials, free sign-ups,etc. Things you don't have to spend money on right away.
