Making money with ClickBank can be pretty easy, as long as you know what you are doing. In a nutshell, it simply involves doing some simple and duplicable steps that I will explain in this article. Making money with ClickBank can sometimes appear to be very hard, but it does not have to be, there are definitely no "secrets" to it.
Based on my affiliate marketing experiences, as long as you know what you are doing ANYBODY can make money with ClickBank. However, there is a process which you need to learn and follow, so lets begin!
Step 1. Creating Your ClickBank Account.
In order to sell ClickBank products, the first thing you need to do is to register as a ClickBank affiliate, and to do this you need to create your own affiliate account following following the next few easy steps in the process:
a). Go to ClickBank.com and complete the ClickBank affiliate sign up form. This will only take you a few minutes. It is a straightforward thing to do, just follow the instructions on ClickBank.com. It is important to make sure your contact details (email) are correct as ClickBank will confirm your affiliate account by email.
b). Once you receive your affiliate account confirmation email, click the link within the email and this will bring you to the confirmation page. This is where you can log-in via the log-in link at the top of the page.
When you have logged in you will then be taken to your account homepage, where you can keep track of your sales and earnings. Once here, you just need to enter some information in the Payment information section. There are 2 parts to this section, one for your preferred payment method, and the other for your payment thresholds. Payment method gives you the option to choose how you would like to receive your responsibilities. However, new affiliates can only receive their responsibilities by check, until they have made some consistent sales.
The Payment Threshold is the minimum amount you will need to earn in commissions before ClickBank will send your payment. You can edit this by clicking the edit link located in the top right hand corner of the payment information area.
Step 2. How to Select Your ClickBank Product.
Now, obviously selecting the right ClickBank product to promote includes some other important steps you will ever need to explore, such as keyword research. As keyword research is outside of the remit of this article, and is a complete subject on it's own, you can find out more and read some of my keyword research articles by clicking the link contained in my author bio at the end of this article.
Now, back to the ClickBank Marketplace. On the My Account Homepage you will notice a link at the top of the page called "Marketplace." Click on it! You will now see a list of product categories, from which you can choose a product to sell. So choose a category and we can move onto the next stage of the process.
Assuming you have chosen a category, you should now be looking at a list of product results, now you need to take a number of factors into account BEFORE making your product choice, such as:
1. Gravity. – This tells you how many affiliates are making money with the product. I recommend choosing products with a gravity of 300 or more.
2. Avg% / Sale. – This gives you the average amount of commission that vendors will offer for each sale. I recommend promoting ClickBank products that offer 50% commission or more.
3. Avg Rebill. – This tells you whether or not this product is a subscription product or not. I recommend only choosing the products that will pay you a recurring monthly income, so ONLY choose a product that has a $ 15 or more rebill total in this field, because this means you will get paid this amount over and over again.
Now that you have selected your ClickBank product using the criteria above, you need create your unique affiliate link to begin promoting. ClickBank call this a "Hoplink".
To create your "Hoplink" you need to do the following (Do not worry this is easy):
1. Click the "Promote" button next to the product you have chosen.
2. On the next page called "Affiliate Program: Promote Products for (Vendor name)". You need to enter your account nickname (ID) then click "Create", and you will be presented with 2 affiliate links (Hoplink). You should copy these links and paste into an excel spreadsheet on your computer. Remember these are YOUR AFFILIATE LINKS that you will use for promotion and are how you get paid for each sale, so look after them as ClickBank will not store them for you.
You will notice that they are two Hoplinks, but unless you are a web designer with HTML coding knowledge, you should only need to use the shorter version (usually with the black font as opposed to the longer one in blue)
How to Start Making Money With ClickBank – Step 3.
Promoting Your Chosen Product.
So you should now have your FREE ClickBank account created with your first Hoplink to promote. There are many marketing methods you can choose, but beware of "marketing method overload" particularly if you are a newbie. This is when you try to master all marketing methods at once, and do not achieve your goals as you do not become competent at any.
So my advice is to choose a marketing method you are comfortable with, then a master at it, then move onto the next.
To start making money with ClickBank journey, I highly recommend using Article marketing and Free Social Media to start with, particularly if you are on a limited budget, and especially if you have time as opposed to money.
However, if you are looking for fast results from your marketing, and you can spend some money, then paid advertising is the way to go, such as PPC or Solo-ads.
