Where to promote Clickbank Products ?

by 65 replies
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.

      For free blog, blogger is good choice. I can generate sales $100 a month if i'm lucky. Please keep in mind that you write your original article or you will get banned

    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.

      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? 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.

      Good way to lose a ton of your traffic. Better to funnel that traffic onto a list THEN market to them. Not as simple but way more effective and profitable in the long run.

      What type of products / websites are promoting / advertising on? I tried multiple ones using direct links and all failed.

      Thank you!

    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

    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!

    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 $$$$ ?

      Hi Artse, just letting you know I have no email from you. I checked the "sent" copy of the p.m. I sent you, and I didn't have a typo in my email address, or anything like that. Perhaps you could try and send it again?

    There is much more to affiliate marketing than writing articles, syndicating and then packing them with affiliate links.

    As was already mentioned it all starts with building your list and developing a relationship with that list. To do this you should offer a free giveaway that suits your target market and require them to opt in with a valid email to receive. Then you have to get on good terms with your subscribers before you pitch them on anything.

      Hey man quit spamming this place. Think about what you're going to say and say it in one post not 3 in a row with 5 words or less... Doesn't look good ... looks like you are trying to increase your post count by asking dumb questions.

      So can it Troll.

    Others Gave You Some Ideas. Whatever you do, try to do something to maximize (viralize) that traffic you're getting. For example, you can give away a free ebook (plr ebook) to those who tweet your page / blog (PayWithaTweet.com it's very good for that...and free).

    Here's the answer in a nutshell:

    Build a website - a useful one that someone would actually want to visit.

    Get traffic to it through backlinks and social networks.

    Once you have some decent traffic, then try to monetize it - with ClickBank, AdSense or whatever.

    Stop looking for a shortcut - there isn't one. As you've found out, these "gurus" are selling what's basically a tutorial on how to use ClickBank, not how to get traffic - which is the key to success.

    This is another issue that I'm interested in... very good question!

    ClickBank product promotion is rather complex and a few people know "secrets" to marketing them right.

    If you are an affiliate, then you should already have a well-established platform/site/community and get the word out...

    If you are a vendor it's more complicated...

    I think you must try the following (in case you want to sell):
    -SEO - must have, must do...
    -consider AdWords advertising, especially if you have an expensive niche product... I tried Facebook PPC, didn't work out!
    -YouTube videos
    -use ClickBank's paid service to let other affiliates know about your product
    -submit your site to "affiliate directories" so that others will join your affiliate program
    -try BuySellAds to advertise your product - very low CTR's might be generated, but you might manage to squeeze out enough sales to brign good ROI

    They redirect you because they are getting paid for the referral. That is how it works. One of the ways to promote a clickbank product is to go to a site that is doing a review on that particular product and add a comment. In your comment sneak in your product link. You may need to know a bit of HTML code for that. You could also try ClickRaider. that is what I use to promote and I get hits.

    I think you should consider social networks. You can meet a lot of people there and some of them might be interested in your promoted products. Good luck!
