What kind of affiliate marketing business you can use to get money from Clickbank.  Are you interested in a question like that? If yes then this article is suitable for you. Some of my frends usually less interested in Clickbank, instead tend to see it as a digital products of inferior quality. But it must be admitted, if we look well, actually there are many products relatively attractive and much sought after by users. For example, with products such as Google Sniper 3.0 and Freedom Formula 8, people are still touting it as a great place to find a good product and has a profit to promote it. I decided to investigate further to see if it really is still possible to make money from Clickbank.

The 3 steps to success as an affiliate
The 3 steps to success as an affiliate

Here are the questions I hope to answer:  Are there any quality products on Clickbank worth promoting?; How much money can you make by promoting stuff from the CB marketplace?;  How to find high converting, high paying items with low return rates;  What does the future of Clickbank look like?

Making money on ClickBank, like anything worthwhile, won’t be smooth sailing, especially at the beginning. It’ll take creativity, trial and error and loads of patience.

Here are Some tips to help get you started :

Don’t be obsessed with high gravity and $/Sale – It’s not necessarily the product with the highest gravity or Ave$/Sale you should focus on. Programs with a very high Av$/Sale have stiffer competition. And, they usually have lower conversions. Those in the middle have higher conversions. Find the right balance.

Wrap up your offer in relevant content – A successful affiliate offer hinges on context. You can put the offer on your newsletter, a high-performing blog post, or on a ‘products we recommend’ page. Here’s a little case study of this tactic right here on Smart Blogger. Click on ‘Tools We Recommend’ on the menu and you’ll see this :

What I love about this is that they don’t just provide a bare shopping list of resources like many WordPress sites do. They package their recommendations in the form of a post. This way the endorsements look natural, not forced. The result? More sales. You can craft a special piece of content for specific offers. Think of it like a jigsaw puzzle. Your free content provides a piece that can only be completed by the offer.

Get the product/audience fit right – With thousands of flashy products on show, the temptation to promote any top-selling program to your audience is strong. Resist it. Two reasons:

  • If your offers aren’t a good fit for your audience, you won’t make money, period. Eventually, you’ll get discouraged and curse the ClickBank gurus for ‘misleading’ you.
  • Offers that don’t resonate with your audience will wear them down. They’ll develop ‘offer blindness’. They won’t respond to future offers. Ultimately, they’ll stop trusting you.

Only join programs that add value to your audience. It’s best for everyone. Your audience will adore you for proposing great products to them. You’ll make more money.

Create  YouTube funnel- Most ClickBank affiliate marketing strategies focus on email marketing (sending emails to your list), social media promotion (tweeting or sharing your affiliate link), or SEO (creating top-notch content around your affiliate product and getting it to rank on Google). But there’s another traffic source that most e-commerce gurus ignore: video. Specifically, YouTube. Smart marketers take advantage of the powers of YouTube, the second largest search engine, to set up a high-converting ClickBank funnel.

Here’s how:

  • Find the right product to promote
  • Search for popular content related to the product on YouTube
  • Dissect the content to see why it’s popular
  • Produce similar content in your own YouTube channel

Link to the product in your video.

Are there any quality products on Clickbank worth promoting?

Yes, but you really need to dig. And I mean really dig deep. There is a lot of crap on Clickbank. In fact, lots of it is from several years ago, and there’s no way to really tell when the product released, unless you look at the gravity of the product. Remember, “gravity” is a number that represents how many affiliates have made commissions lately. It’s not a 1/1 ratio, but the higher the better. I’ve seen high gravity being 50+ and low gravity as low as less than 10.

How do you tell the good products from the bad? This is a matter of judgement, taste, and personal bias, but here are a few pointers; Up front and honest sales pitch; Short and to-the-point product description; Informative with little or no hype; and Up to date information.

How much money can you make by promoting stuff from the CB marketplace? This is the question that gets asked the most, but it’s the one with really no answer. It depends on a lot of variables, so you can make anything from zero to tens of thousands of dollars per month. For me personally, I don’t make that much from Clickbank, and never have. I take in about $75 to $100 per month. It isn’t impressive.

Other people swear by Clickbank, and a lot of “how to make money” products are based solely on using Clickbank. To them, Clickbank is the foundation of their business despite the fact that there are thousands of other affiliate programs out there. Also, keep in mind that many of these guys don’t even look at what’s offered! They only care about : What the sales page looks like ; How the offer is converting; What competition is like; How much money they make per sale; and Notice that “customer satisfaction” isn’t a top priority.

How to find high converting, high paying items with low return rates  You can find this information right on the little blurb about each product :  Initial $/sale: How much money you make for each sale; Avg %/sale: The percent commission you make of total cost; Avg Rebill Total: If there is a recurring payment, the average total of all rebilled commissions; Avg %/rebill: If there is a recurring payment, the percent commission you make;  and Grav: How many affiliates have made commissions in the last 12 days

A high commission, recurring payments, and a high gravity is what you want to look for. Be sure to watch out for that gravity! This will also depend on your niche of course, and your particular audience. You are the expert, so think about what your audience wants, and find a product to match them. Here is a  popular product that can be used for many niches. The perfect combination! High commission %, High dollar amount per sale, recurring commissions, and a high gravity.  Even with all these combined factors, you still need to know if this product is worth promoting. You need to investigate a few things :  General competition in this niche ; Competition from other affiliate marketers in this niche ; Other people promoting this specific product ; Keyword stats ; and The product itself (is it good)

What does the future of Clickbank look like? The biggest problem with Clickbank (and any other affiliate marketing network for that matter) is the vast amount of valueless junk being peddled. With a greater emphasis on quantity than quality, there are many digital products, including programs and electronic guidebooks, that are little other than spam. As is the case with any form of affiliate marketing, you need to choose a product that you yourself believe in, and given the large amount of useless products on Clickbank, it can be hard to find something that falls into this category. It will take some time until you can find something that’s truly worth advertising on your website, but it is important that you invest the time and effort rather than risking harm to your reputation by advertising a product that your visitors are not likely to be impressed by or interested in.

For me think Clickbank is going to be around for a while. Digital information products, membership sites, PDF guides and other information that can be bought and sold on the internet is only going to grow. I give CB a hard time because I work in the internet marketing industry so I see horribly hyped and misleading products all the time, but there were a few goodies I found in my research for this article. I’m not recommending you promote these, but I just thought that they looked like high-value products for the right niche audience.

Make Money From Clickbank Not Easy

I went over to ClickBank, found a good product to promote. Then went over to Facebook ads, set up my campaign after three days I still have nothing. I try using Bing ads, set up my campaign, and let ‘er rip. Sadly, the results were dismal. Now, I will admit this..I didn’t run the ad for too long. Maybe 3-4 days, max. I spent about $20, and I had 76 clicks per 1,500+ impressions, with a click-through rate of about 4%. As far as Bing is concerned, those are really good numbers. The problem was, I made NO sales!

The good news is, from my experience there is still some potential for making money with ClickBank using a slightly different approach, using the email marketing. That is, to make a good landing page and collect emails, or create a good review site about your offer, and “pre-sale” your leads. I still use this method and I happy with.

This One is the other Idea that I like …and you can do it as I do :

  • Select a bunch of clickbank products from one single niche.
  • Get a free ebook made about this niche (you can get it made on Fiverr .com)
  • Create and Capture the lead, asking your visitors to download this ebook for free (you can create it yourself. Lead capturing is the most important part of affiliate marketing. Your business is built around your list. Anything you can do to increase its size means more money for you. While a squeeze page maybe the best way to get someone to give you his email address, you still need a system to handle and host the list, the autoresponder.

Auto responders are emails that go out at a set date and interval. When someone subscribe to your blog, they are sent a series of auto responder emails. These emails are design to do three things : Build a relationship with the subscriber; Promote blog and brand and Recommend products and services that help solve the reader’s problem

This is also known as a sales funnel. The first few emails helps build your relationship with the subscriber. Later emails in the funnel are used to promote the Clickbank products. This setup works far better than any hit and run system. Research has shown that most prospect won’t buy on the first visit or email. They need to be hit over and over again. This is where the auto responder comes in. The sooner you set it up, the faster you’ll be in the money.

  • Bring traffic on to this landing page. You may use FB, Youtube and other paid traffic sources like PPC, PPV networks to start with.
  • Make Yours autoresponders work, that will deliver these ebook to the users and from time to time send your clickbank offers that you selected.
  • That it! Start making money. You will see on average of 5% to 7% conversions from your list.

 In conclusion, it is definitely true what all the experienced marketers out there say, “You can’t get rich quick!” At least, not anymore. Building a successful business online requires a lot of time, effort and patience, which in the long run will be more beneficial anyway. I do believe that money can be made with ClickBank still today, so long as you don’t try any short-cuts.
