It will take time but fir sure you can do it , First of all you need to create your own blog where you can share your ideas , and then try getting involved in the conferences and meet ups related to your industry .. Blogs really do help with building your own recognition and your personal branding , Share your ideas about your industry how it can be improved what you know about it what are the problems its facing what are the things businesses use which an help them grow ..
First of all try improving your pre sell copy , split testing different copies , just because you say you have some good pages isn't enough ... Also build lists , iF you are promoting click bank and not building list you are loosing tons of money , People may not join your recommended service on day one they want to make sure what they are getting is legit etc so they do more research etc , the best bet would be to build list encourage them to contact you if they have any questions and presell them the program through emails as well ..
You could have easily make them write about them by sending them your product Dick lol and a personalized letter requesting them to review it for you on their blogs) .. Instead of offering payment offer the product for them to test and review , Same with you tubers ... when you end someone a gift that has its own feel ... IMo that would have been better option ..
