Where to promote Clickbank Products ?

Hello there

One simple question : Where to promote Clickbank Products ?
I mean WHERE not only how
I have looked /download here on Warrior a couple of ClickBank Tutorials Free eBooks and studied them carefully.None of them talks concrete and if one ebook is closer to the truth will ask you to see another ebook which ......surprise costs $$$$.
I know and i understand that everything these days costs $$$$ but i am confused why people tell you on warrior "check here to make money for free" and then redirects you to pay.
Anyway this is not the issue:

I want to promote clickbank products :

Article way : does not matter the content because most important article website DOES NOT ACCEPT AFFILIATE LINKS , you can modify the hop link using bit.ly etc , but most important article websites still not accept your affiliate link.Hubpages is one of the recent websites that banned clickbank affiliates (except amazon).

Website way : should i know SEO ? if yes what can i do about the Panda and Penguin update. Because of these updates aren`t the new websites infulenced in a negative way?

I own a free website, tried to promote it but i need target traffic , not just traffic.How to get it? Write unique content , ok i can do that but all the products on Clickbank with good gravity have GREAT Competition and with great competition comes great issues Does not matter how unique content i write because i will not get a first page rank soon.I need to wait , wait until the product will become not interested for the buyers.

I know i need to insist on a way to promote my clickbank products.

But what should i do ? where to go ?

    I'm with you. I came to this forum a short time ago and found it to be such a reliable resource. But methods I've learned, I tried but had trouble. I tried an amazon affiliate website, but must have screwed up because I made it to first page of Google in 2 weeks, than crashed and burned over the last week. Now I dont even show up in the serps for any keywords. Very disgusted.

    I'm working on a Clickbank product of my own, which will hopefully be out in a month or so. Now I'm getting a little nervous because how I thought I would promote it isnt looking good.

    So I'm with you, not really sure where to go. Do I need to build a whole site around my 1 item? Or is it easier to just put the item on Clickbank and let others find it and promote it?

    I'm looking for the same advice.

    Check out Russell Brunson's Affiliate Bootcamp -- The first webinar called "The Golden Sequence".

    I'm not an affiliate, just a fan.

    If you do a Google search you should come up with his free training videos where he lays out the whole concept.

    If you are interested in generating "free" traffic then I would start with article marketing & video marketing. Writing quality articles & syndicating them, as well as uploading videos to Youtube can be great for driving quality traffic to your offer.

    You AT LEAST need to create a free blog @ blogger or wordpress & be able to write reviews for the products you are selling...since many articles won't allow affiliate links in the resource box, you can link out to your blog.

    An even better strategy would be to get a domain name & hosting and have your own website or blog...it is important to have something that you have 100% control over. If you really want to get serious, then start building an email list of prospects & promote residual income affiliate programs.

    While Clickbank is great, you may want to consider other affiliate mechants as well.

    By email to your own subscribers, who already trust you, if you like money.

    It's as simple (not as "easy"!) as this: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post7110523

    Then stop trying to find the answer from people who are making a living selling advice, and find it instead from people who are making a living by selling ClickBank products.

    Nobody is making a living from selling ClickBank products by direct linking to their hoplinks.

    It makes no difference whether or not they accept affiliate links, because you can't sell them that way anyway. People don't buy ClickBank products from articles. They buy them from building relationships based on credibility, trust and respect, and you need them to be subscribers (not "article readers"! Not even "visitors to a website"!) to do that.

    You should start by understanding the essentials of selling ClickBank products: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5210243 . What your primary traffic source is going to be is a different and less important question. I've been selling ClickBank products for a living for three and a half years, and out of all the niches and all the products I've tried, and all the methods I've used, I've always found that SEO traffic is the least-responsive and worst-converting form of traffic there is. It's also the most precarious way, and the least reliable, of course, because (as so many Warriors have found out over the last year or so, some of them to their very great cost) a business that relies on Google for its primary traffic can only ever be one algorithm-change away from a potential accident or even a potential disaster.

    You've misunderstood "gravity", I think?. Perhaps you've confused "good gravity" with "high gravity"? They're two very different things. They can even be opposites. There isn't a correlation between gravity figures and numbers of sales: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post2495251

    Start here - by understanding the essentials: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post7110523

    That's the "information" part about selling ClickBank products, which you need to understand.

    The "technique" parts are here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post2161932

    And here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post6123982

    These are the methods that work for the people who are making a living by selling ClickBank products.

    Many people who write e-books advising others how to sell ClickBank products seem to have very different ideas, most of them lifted straight out of the Urban Myth School of Internet Marketing, but those are people making their money by selling advice to beginning marketers, not by selling ClickBank products.

    The answer to your original question is undoubtedly "by email, to subscribers". But as always, you have to start by deciding for yourself by whom you want to be advised.

    Where? through BuySellAds.

    You don't need website, SEO, article marketing...

    Just buy an adspace on a wesbite that related with your niche using BuySellAds, and direct linking the ads with your CB affiliate product. This method is very simple, but works.

    I shall look into the links you`ve told me Alexa , i read also how you`ve managed to make money from affiliate marketing (you posted in other forum).I saw there that your first mistake was that you took too much action insted of more reading first (your words)
    I saw also that you wrote 25-30 articles per month.Using this technique you`ve managed to get subcribers , your way is a simple and a best way to sell clickbank products , but it`s a hard way and you know it Building a relationship with your readers/future buyers is hard and it takes time.

    I thank you so much for your answers , i still have a simple question :
    Ho do i "build" subscribers ?
    Other then subscribers what can i do ?
    Squeze Page ?/
    I ask you this because SEO is not as good for clickbank , like many people tend to think.A solid connection is required with your visitator, but how to do that.

    Would like to know a solid way to make money with clickbank, i know it`s not easy and takes time , but i would like you to put me on a good track

    where - within your email sequences when you are building your list

    i wouldnt even dream of promoting clickbank products without building a list. Its just far too much work and a waste of time because your making one off sales and thats it

    sure, you can make a bit of money but if you value your time then the list is the way to go if your trying to succeed with clickbank

    By attracting highly targeted visitors to your site, and offering them something desirable/of value in exchange for their email address.

    There are many different ways of doing this, both free ones and paid ones (including "by off-page SEO", which I think is probably the worst way, overall, and - for a variety of different reasons - is almost invariably the main way that's been tried by people who never quite manage to do it successfully). The method I mostly use myself, if it helps, is this one. But there are others that work, too.

    One of the best places to promote clickbank offers is where there are hungry buyers. And one of the best methods I've found, what works extremely well, is on the backend of WSOs in a "Other Resources" section.

    I did this in my most recent WSO launch, and so so far, I've made $400+, just from these Clickbank offers.

    All I did was locate 3 different offers on CB that are actually GOOD offers. They provide an immense amount of valuable training related to making money. And since my WSO was also related to making money, my conversion rates on these were red hot.

    One interesting thing to note is that, for each of these offers, related to my sales, my CTR was around a 4-6%, but my sale conversions were between 14-18%, which is pretty freaking good.

    It's definitely something to think about, if you're launching WSOs. It makes nice extra income for you!

    If i make a blog , let`s say using wordpress , import lot`s but lot`s of clickbank products with their simple description per product not much keywords, just a simple description and (meta tags if wordpress allows that) make one post/one product and submit my blog to search engines / articles / directory / comment to other high PR blogs etc do i have a chance because of the NEW Panda and Penguin update?

    Why am i asking this , i cannot post the links here because i dont have sufficient posts here on warrior (but will have soon) , i found lots but lots of blogpost.com links with tons but TONS of clickbank products / amazon products i saw that they do 200/400 posts per month , simple post with short description (without keywords) and one link (the clickbank or amazon affiliate link) , no videos , no nothing.And they keep posting day by day , i`m asking this because if they won`t make money , they won`t keep posting every clickbank product on their blogs.The blogs i tell you about are BLOGS only for AFFILIATES.

    If you want i can send you a private message with these affiliate links Alexa so you can tell me your opinion

    Thank you

    In my opinion you have very little chance of making any significant sales of ClickBank products that way, for all the reasons explained here, and that was/is the reality before, during and after all and any Panda and Penguin updates. Sorry - I know it isn't what you want to hear, but that doesn't actually stop it from being true.

    I think that's exactly what they do, and perhaps they have some of that automated or semi-automated, anyway. (The fact that they're using Blogger for this doesn't in itself exactly inspire the highest opinion of their competence, you know? Just saying ... :p ). Typically, they try this for a few months (or maybe even longer) and when they eventually realise it doesn't work, some of them come here - or go to other forums - and start threads with titles like "ClickBank is a scam", because they've collectively failed to appreciate that what sells ClickBank products is usually the strength of the relationship between the potential customer and the person recommending them, and the resultant credibility and trust attached to the recommendations.

    Sent the e-mail with the links.
    Yes but all of them , all sites , with no connection between them , they post tons and tons of clickbank products for over 1 year 2 years ago , i guess they are not that stubber to try and try for years with no success and no $$$$ . They must make profit.I just think logical
    There are lots of websites on the web that promotes using the aggressive scheme,lots and lots of products , no keywords , no unique content , no nothing just massive number of products,as i said , they must make money otherwise they won`t continue to post products over and over again , month by month year by year

    Still no one has a answer?

    Why there are so many blogpost.com users on the web that have lots and lots of clickbank products , they update daily their products from over 1-2 years ago.They have no keyword , no meta tag, no SEO.They just use short description and one post/one page.Websites name are not related with the products.So my question is :

    Does the aggressive blog ( a blog with 500-1000 clickbank products) with poor keywords, poor SEO, poor website name brings you $$$$ ?

    Dude, think about what you're saying... if that's all it took then everyone would be millionaires by now. You have to THINK and not just for the obvious solutions either. Remember A+B does not always = C

    Think outside the box. Reverse engineer things by asking yourself different questions. So instead of asking where can I find places to advertise start by asking Where do these people hang out? How can I get in front of them? How can I stand out from the rest?

    There is NO cut and dry answer because it all comes down to your own marketing skills. Luckily this is something you can learn...

    PS. I cannot believe you believe you can buy a step-by-step system for $10 and have it be 100% by the book. There are good WSO's on this topic but it still requires you to think for yourself. Nothing is absolute so STOP looking for that and START thinking on your own, learn concepts and think about how you can make it better/different whatever.
