Clickbank is the #1 affiliate network for digital products.
Many people have made millions as affiliates and product owners, while a few others are still hoping to unlock the vault. Are you one of them?
I have not made millions from clickbank yet, but at this stage, I know how it all works. If you’ve been doing internet marketing for quite a while now, then affiliate marketing isn’t a new topic.
There is nothing fancy about it again. In fact, when I see blog post titles on it, I usually cringe for no good reasons. Please don’t ask me…
But can I shock you for a moment?
The basic steps of affiliate marketing online still work well with clickbank.
Don’t try to go overboard with new strategies because it can overwhelm you at some point. Instead, do it the old school way and you’ll definitely succeed.
When I say ‘easy money,’ I’m not saying it’s going to be easy by itself. It suggests that you can literally make extra cash following some simple steps.
The way I make money as an affiliate with clickbank is straight forward. Here are the 3 steps:
1. Identify and select your niche
Selecting a good niche is not the first step – but the second.
The first is actually market research, which enables you to know who your ideal customer is, what they truly want to buy and their motivation.
In copywriting, one of the rules is to hang out with your target audience and listen to the words they use consistently.
Oftentimes, you’ll discover that a market might be hot, but the people are not willing to buy the products.
Yes, the majority of them would rather prefer free information to paying $12 or even less to get it. In this case, the market is good, but not profitable – don’t select it.
For instance, people can manage acne scars, but who can stay healthy and happy with arthritis joint pains?
When your target audience can MANAGE the symptoms of their problems until they finally get the right information FOC, such niches are not good for an affiliate marketer. Remember, your goal is to make commissions per sale, not per click like AdSense.
Quick note: If your target audience is desperate to buy solutions, you’re good to go. E.g. People searching for “how to eliminate hot flashes and high blood pressure,” can buy e-books or subscribe to a membership site.
2. Select high-converting offers
The product you want to promote as an affiliate is vital if you MUST succeed with clickbank. Visit the salespage and read the copy word by word.
Imagine you as the potential buyer and see whether the words on the page can persuade you or not.
If you don’t feel motivated to whip your credit card and place an order, then stay away from such offers. The good thing about clickbank is that you can find hundreds of products on the same niche.
So take your time. Don’t be in a hurry to start making quick money, because nothing like that exists as yet.
Back in February, I discovered a hot and high-converting e-book on clickbank and virtually every day, I’d make 2 – 3 sales from less than 15 visitors a day.
Once you’ve selected a good product which pays out decent commission, gird up your loins and get a landing page to capture email leads.
Use or Getresponse or Aweber to follow up with your subscribers and get them acquainted with the product. Teach them how and what to do to get results. Build up the rapport before you ask them to buy.
3. Take 2-action steps
Honestly, this is not a step on its own but a wake-up call to you to act right now.
I’ve shared 2-step processes on how to profit with clickbank affiliate marketing. But if you don’t act on them, you’ll earn $0.000 by the end of next month.
What about getting traffic to my landing page?
You also know how to buy pay per click targeted traffic. What about twitter and Facebook marketing?
You know so much already. It’s time to act. With a converting landing page, good niche and hot product, you can make good money with less than 500 monthly visitors. It’s no longer about driving thousands of visitors, but converting them is KEY.
