Clickbank & struggles

6 replies
Hello there!
So I've been trying to work my way around affiliated marketing for some time now. I have my very own website, with an email opt-in, Twitter ads for traffic and using clickbank as my source of affiliation.

I know that Twitter ads probably isn't the best place for advertising a website about "making money", that's what my website is about; a blog about making money.
But I'm trying.. and I'm new to all of this.
(Link removed by moderator).

I get maybe 2-4K people seeing my tweet about my website and maybe 100 people click onto my website. And maybe 1-7 people get to the actual affiliate link.

I am so bad at this that I am stressing over how bad I really am.

I just want some guidance into this. What I should do and how I should proceed.
Thanks

    Hi,


    it's hard to give the right advice without seeing your website and the product you are promoting.


    You should not talk bad about yourself. I mean you did take action and built everything on your own etc. (at least it sounds like it)

    You should be proud of what you accomplished so far.


    All you need to do is improving everything you are doing. Look at your website: Does it provide value for people or is it just a simple sales letter? -> people don't like to be sold from someone they don't know without getting some value first.


    Twitter can be a good advertising option as well as any other social media platform can be. It depends on the audience you are targeting, the content of the tweet you are promoting and as I already said it also depends on your product and website you are promoting.


    Improve, improve, improve, learn new things and don't give up and your results will get better.


    Me personally I prefer to promote funnels and opportunities which are 'done for you'. That means I don't have to build everything on my own and think about whether it converts or not. I choose something which does, work with people who have the knowledge and power so that I only need to be good at getting traffic. But that's just me.

      Thank you.

      I've been struggling with this a long time and it doesn't get easier when you don't have many paths to walk on.

      Clickfunnels costs so much per month and even then i would have a difficult time trying to find a better way to get as many clicks as possible that actually want to buy the things that i try to promote.

      I have a clear vision in my head, i want to be able to pay for my mothers loans at the end of this year.
      But right now im stuck. And i feel like there is no way to go from here.

      Even with my own website and the small amout of clicks i get.

      Thanks for replying!

        I totally understand that. In my opinion clickfunnels is way too expensive for someone who is basically just starting and trying things out.
        Thats why I also never invested into such expensive monthly tools because I knew I would lose money doing it.
        Try to find cheaper or even free solutions. You just need to google a bit to find them. They exist.

        Thats a first important step - you have a clear why in your head why you want to do it. That can drive you and motivate you to move forward.


        And if you really feel completely stuck right now maybe you should look for something else. I kinda hate to say that because thats often a big success killer to jump from one thing to another but sometimes its better to find a new solution instead of riding a dead horse.

        You're the only one who can decide here if its worth to keep trying or if its better to find another opportunity.



        I got a lot from coaching. If you have access to any coaching opportunity that also helps a lot.

    The content on your website might be at fault for not having conversions, and that can't be fixed with more money spent on ads.

    Choose a different niche. Seriously. For anyone who hasn't already made money online, the chances of success in the MMO market are virtually zero. There's no reason for anyone to listen to you or trust your recommendations.

    If you want to blog, find a niche you know something about where you can write interestingly or entertainingly. Or find an existing market you can get in front of and supply it with the sort of products or services they're already buying.

    Check your internal attitude and what you are saying to yourself.

    If you see yourself as a failure, you will fail no matter what you do.

    Go to Youtube and watch "The Strangest Secret In The World" by Earl Nightingale.

    Listen to that over and over and over again.
