[Newbies!] *FOOL PROOF* Way to Make Your First Sale With Clickbank!

42 replies
The first thing you need to do is, forget everything you've been told about making money with Clickbank!

You don't want high gravity products!

You don't want to buy an exact match domain!

You don't even want build any backlinks!

Now before you call me crazy, know that I'm speaking from PERSONAL experience, and I have documented evidence of my results.

The strategy I'm about to give you, free of charge, has been tested, fined tuned, re-tested, and refined into a FOOL PROOF method to generate an easy passive income from Clickbank!

It's so simple, I was able to teach it to my Virtual Assistants in less than a week, then let them take over my video marketing!

They made their first sale in 3 days, which is 6 days faster than my first sale, when I discovered this strategy!

So, first things first...

Go to Clickbank and find products with a gravity between 6 and 10

Why?

Because in my experience, this segment has the best of both worlds...

Products with low competition, and high converting sales pages!

My people equate gravity with conversions.

But gravity, by definition, is the number of people that have made at least one sale in the last 30 days.

So it's pretty safe to say, each point represents a person.

So a product with a gravity of 236, has AT LEAST 236 people ALREADY selling it!

Not to mention the people that are trying but haven't made a sale yet.

People look at a product with a gravity of 10 and think that means the sales page doesn't convert, forgetting that the gravity only represents ONE sale made by an affiliate.

So even if he makes 100 sales, only 1 will count towards the gravity.

So a product with a gravity of 10 could convert even better than a product with a gravity of 236, it's just LESS AFFILIATES are aware of it!

That's why we want to promote it!

If 10 people can make at least one sale a month, so can 11!

And if a sales page can convert at least 10 times a month, it works!

Hard can it be to split the pie with 10 people, when there are 10 spots on the first page of Google and 20 on Youtube, for the product's name?

And when you know what the hell you're doing, how hard is it to dominate Google, Youtube, Bing and Yahoo for a product with 10 successful affiliates?

From my experience, this has been the best place to find products that will make you $100+ a month, with very little traffic!

So...you find a product with a gravity between 6-10

Make a video reviewing the product, but not really the product...

What you do is find the "twist" behind the product, and use that to prove that the product works!

For example, the twist behind P90X is "Muscle Confusion".

Unlike other workout programs you don't plateau, because your muscles never get accustomed to your routine.

The "twist" behind Insanity was "Inverse Cardio Interval Training".

Instead of doing short cardio intervals with long breaks, you do long intervals with short rests, get the picture?

This way you don't have to know anything about the product in order to gain trust.

Or you could just put up an image with narration, it ALL works!

How do I know?

I put up a video with no sound and it STILL converted!

That was actually the point I decided to hire a full time product reviewer, because it didn't have to be perfect to work, still doesn't!

So make the video.

Why video? Because Google doesn't have any rules for videos.

They rank in minutes, if you choose the right terms, they can't get slapped, they convert better, they can be duplicated but still rank as if they unique, and if they get deleted you just put them back up again.

Stop trying to make Google love your websites. Google hates you...get over it. They're a business, not THEE internet, and they won't be around forever...

Give Google what they want, and make your money while they still exist.

You can use Screencast-o-matic and do a screen capture video. Screen capture videos work the best so far, but so do talking head type videos.

Make the video and upload it to Youtube using the product name as the title, tags and description.

If you know how to create a self-hosted redirect, use one in the description.

If you don't know how, instead, visit your clickbank affiliate link and then copy the link in browser when you reach the site.

It should be the websites domain plus your clickbank id

That link looks more official in your video description anyway.

Now put every variation of that products name and product name related keywords in your description, and tags.

Upload the video and maybe even ping it.

Since the product doesn't have a lot of competition, you'll probably rank without any additional SEO.

Especially if the product has a unique name, like Forex Genesis Code, or something like that...

Something that would never have existed on Google prior the this products creation.

I would suggest you review EVERY SINGLE product that has that gravity.

This will allow you to cast a wide net of products that will all convert stagnantly at different times, giving you a pretty nice income

You should make a sale before you've reached the end of your list...

Once you do, focus all your efforts on getting more traffic to that sales page, to scale up your profits.

Rinse and repeat.

I've had to do this over and over again, and it ALWAYS works!

Serves as a really easy way to make an extra $400 a month, in about 3 months time if you review 5-10 products a day, on the low end, and as high as $1200 month on the high end.

Beware of competitors flagging your videos! That's been the largest hurdle to overcome, but I've found having multiple channels helps out A LOT!

But no matter what, haters goin hate!

Hope it helps! I charge as much as $97 for this same info, you got it for free, take advantage

    Hmmm...

    I usually select CB products that in range between 15 - 50.

    However, your idea is good!

      I'm not sure if you actually read through all his advice. You get traffic by ranking your very simple video, and the competition is basically nonexistent at that gravity level (as he has so astutely pointed out, most marketers tend to go after Clickbank products with much higher gravity) so it's just like shooting fish in a barrel!

    Great info but not exactly fool proof.. I dont actually agree with your gravity numbers but video I do.There is however 1 sure fire way to almost guarantee page 1 google.
    Do not post video reviews as you suggest rather make sure you do a live broadcast from your youtube accounts. Google ranks these higher and faster always and because no one else is doing this you will outrank all of your competitors.

      I made a sale from a video with NO SOUND....fool proof. Also made a few sales from a video reviewing a SPANISH SPEAKING product, but the review was in English....fool proof. It's so fool proof, if you just reviewed 160 products and uploaded the videos using only the product name in the title you'd still make money

      So fool proof I was able to teach two people that speak English as their second language how to make product reviews that convert, even though they knew nothing about marketing, pre-selling, or the products they reviewed.

      So fool proof I make sales from videos with more dislikes and negative comments, than likes or positive comments.

      So fool proof I've done this from scratch 3 times already and got the same results each time.

      I did use hangouts after one of my students suggested the method to me. They do rank fast, but don't seem to stick as long as the other type of videos. I assumed it was due to the fact events become dated?

      Either way, my regular videos tend to rank within hours, and my students have seen the same results.

      The key is consistency. Putting out enough content until you reach this invisible tipping point, where sales just begin to roll in from all of the content you have out.

      1 click a day on 100 products is 100 clicks a day. Still converts the same!

      We literally reviewed EVERY product that came out each for 30 days, bout 160 total. By day 30 we had made over $300. Sometimes you just have to get there first, and Google will do the rest for you!

      As I mentioned above, this is certainly fool proof, if i can make a sale on a video with no audio and a dozen comments complaining about the lack of audio lol

      I posted this method so people could use it take make some money. It only takes a little bit of doubt to turn someone searching for answers away.

    Products with a super low gravity don't always convert better than ones with a high gravity and vice versa. You have to have a good eye for good copy, and really put yourself in the shoes of your target audience and see if you'd buy it or not.

      This is a skill that can be honed over time. You need a lot of clicks to your offers, lots of videos (if youtube is the traffic source) and lots of patience to rotate out offers, but you'll eventually get an eye for what converts.

      I don't even use gravity at all. I just put the sales page/VSL under full scrutiny and rely on that for my judgement. It's also always good to know the actual product quality as well, so if you can get your hands on that to review that's almost always a good practice.

      What tends to suck is when a product is good (high quality, lots of content/practical usable info) but has a poor sales page. I've come across this a few times, especially for other networks aside from CB. The workaround to that is to create your own page where you write own sales copy (you just have to make it better than the original) and make the order button your affiliate link to checkout.

      Many ways to skin the cat and choose a winning product here.

      that's 100 percent true, my goal is always speed to market. How fast can I get my content, in front of the ppl that matter. Plus this is a newbie guide, so I shared the easiest method.

      My VAs made $300 in their first month picking products with gravity of 0, granted they had just been added to the marketplace, but I noticed the sales came from the low gravity products people were over looking

    That is your definition of gravity . . . not Clickbanks.

    Have you ever taken the time to read what Clickbank says about GRAVITY?

    Your definition is not theirs. Gravity is a calculation based on a formula CB has devised.

    Here is Clickbank's definition of gravity:

    "Grav: Short for GRAVITY™ performance statistic, this number represents a unique calculation by ClickBank that takes into account the number of different affiliates who earned a commission by promoting this product over the past 12 weeks. Since more recent transactions are given a higher value, this number can give you an idea of what products are "hot" at the moment, in terms of being promoted by many affiliates and making a good number of sales. However, high gravity can also indicate that there will be a lot of competition in promoting this product."

    Here is the link to their definition:

      Yes you are correct, this is MY definition of gravity. The point of adopting this view point wasn't to find and exact science. That has nothing to do with the actual point of it all, making money.

      I found a correlation with my rankings. Low gravity products were easy to rank for, period. There were less affiliates to compete with.

      Faster rankings equated to faster traffic and faster commissions.

      My videos also ending up sticking on the page for longer, because other affiliates overlooked these "low gravity" offers to promote the high gravity offers, believing the low gravity products didn't convert.

      My main goal was to stop my students from seeing gravity as sales, and start seeing it as people to compete with. This way they would stop promoting high gravity offers with false expectations, failing to ever get results, and becoming discouraged.

      And the best part is, it's working

      Let us not be too hung up over what actually gravity is. The OP is mentioning a technique whereby people can start making some cash by targeting low gravity products on Clickbank. If it is working for him and others then that is awesome. Who cares what gravity actually is as long as we can make sales.

        Anwar,

        Yes, I understand what you're saying. I was just referencing the OP's statement declaring the "definition of gravity" which was not even close to what CB says it is.

        By all means, call it what you want, but don't attribute it to ClickBank.

      Just remember this isn't an exact science. You may get very few people searching for some of these products with low gravity.

      How many videos have you created and ranked so far? I'd say you'd want to have at least 20 ranking before you can make an accurate assessment.

      With videos, oftentimes there is no rhyme or reason as to how things will turn out -- the videos you think will be a runaway hit will barely get any views, whereas the videos you consider marginal end up being your best performers.

    I've picked Dota 2 Navigation created by Na'Vi, my video is 10th on youtube using "Dota 2 Navigation" keyword and 2nd using "Dota 2 Navigation Review" keyword. No views is going at all, probably it's over-saturated and 99% dota players knows about it.

    I will try health niche now, but first gonna find good low/medium competition keyword and will try to create a fake review using blogspot and SEO it to the first page. Maybe then i will sell atleast one product

    Gravity has nothing to do with anything, just how many affiliates are selling a product.

    We have products on Clickbank of gravity 2 doing way better than products that do 200.

    WHY? its simple, the sales pages, and product are good. That is the secret to owning clickbank.

    You need to forget about gravity, and what everyone says there, its HOGWASH,

    You need a killer sales page, and product, to do well on Clickbank, something that converts.

    All this talk on WF about gravity makes me chuckle. Take it from someone who does thousands on
    clickbank every month. Gravity means nothing, just how many affiliates are selling.

    In my opinion, the lower the gravity the better. But not too low, like 0.5. In between 1 and 10 is where the gems are, but again, do not soley focus on that, or you are setting yourself up for failure.

      WHY? its simple, the sales pages, and product are good. That is the secret to owning clickbank.

      You need to forget about gravity, and what everyone says there, its HOGWASH,

      You need a killer sales page, and product, to do well on Clickbank, something that converts.

      All this talk on WF about gravity makes me chuckle. Take it from someone who does thousands on
      clickbank every month. Gravity means nothing, just how many affiliates are selling.

      In my opinion, the lower the gravity the better. But not too low, like 0.5. In between 1 and 10 is where the gems are, but again, do not soley focus on that, or you are setting yourself up for failure.
      Very true. I am re-confirming this.

    Who cares what gravity actually is as long as we can make sales.
    That would be people who don't know.
