Affiliate marketing and ClickBank go hand in hand. Any Internet Marketer worth his or her salt will tell you the same. If your thinking about becoming an affiliate marketer I would start here.
Now before we get started I just want to point out that I am not affiliated with them, I just promote the products within there website as you will be doing. This information is here to help the new person get started.
Affiliate Marketing and Clickbank
Reasons to use ClickBank. These guys are the Internets most trusted digital marketplace. They started in 1998 and are a secure online retailer of over 46,000 digital products, with over 100,000 affiliate marketers actively promoting digital products. Did you know that They make a sale every 3 seconds. Looking at those numbers you can began to see why ClickBank is number one and why if your new to this game you need to become a member. Its free to join.
To become a member, Go to there website and click on the the sign up tab at the top of the home page. You will be taken to a page where you will be asked to type in your information. You will be asked to create a nickname and password, this is important because this is how ClickBank tracks all your sales and pays you. Once you have done that you will receive a email from them.
You are now ready to start promoting, but before we do that lets take a look a few more things. log in to your account and click on the account settings tab. Here you will see your information, read over it and make sure it is all correct. I am assuming that you are new to ClickBank so you only need to worry about the first three boxes. If you need to make any changes simple click on edit which is located at the top right of each box and make your changes. Now the third box down is the Payment Information box, here you will tell Them how often you want to be paid, click on the payment threshold drop down window and pick a dollar amount. Once you have done that you can move on.
You can choose from tons of products to promote. There are two ways to do this. You can either use the find product browser just above the picture of the man on his laptop, or you can go to the left of the page and find a product. How do you know what product to promote? I would find something that you may know a little about, or are interested in. For example I like to workout and stay fit, so I would look at the Health & Fitness section and look through the products, By the way I just took a look and while I am writing this there are over 223 PAGES of Health & Fitness products in ClickBank. Is this the best thing or what? That’s just one category. These digital products are here for you to promote. You don’t have to create anything. There already created for you. Can you see the power of this website? This website is here for you to use and its FREE.
Once you have found a category, you now want to pick a product out of that category. how do you know which one of these to pick? Lets take a look. First there are two types of products in this category. A product that pays you one time when you make a sale and a product that pays you every month because it is a recurring bill. For example a subscription that you where promoting and someone purchased so you would than receive a commission every month so long as that person continues to pay for his subscription.
I myself always try to find a good recurring bill product to promote because you only have to sale it once to that person and you get paid every month off that one sale, as long as they keep paying for that product. Lets take a look some other factors to consider when choosing the right product.
Commissions on Clickbank
This is what ClickBank will pay you when you make a sale. Usually we want to look for products with 60% commission or better, some pay 75% commission. The only exception to this rule is if the sale price is very high, Normally the sale price range is $30-$70 but if the sale price is $150 than you can afford a 50% commission in pay. Now if your looking for a recurring billing product than we can look for a commission at 40% but no lower than 40%.
Sales page for Products on Clickbank
Take a look at the sales copy of the product and make sure it has a long sales page. Long sales pages tend to convert better than short sales pages.
Gravity rating for Clickbank Products
The Gravity rating is a number ClickBank gives to a product based on how many affiliates have made sales for that product in a given week. If it has a high Gravity than it is converting will, that would make it a good product to promote. A low gravity does not mean that it will not convert will because every product has to start somewhere. The best way to find out is by looking at the products sales page as mentioned earlier. Now with all that being said I know a few marketers that don’t even bother looking at the Gravity at all but it is there for you to use as a tool.
