  2. Then create a landing page from getresponse.com and upload it to mydomain.com/product .
  3. Then create a PPC Bing ad / Facebook Ad Campaign with a budget of $10/day and promote clickbank product.
  4. When a visitor press submit button in my landing page's opt-in box , he'll redirect to the vendor's sell's page.
  5. I'll promote the offer by email marketing , I'll promote the offer by giving them the reason why should they have to buy the product (clickbank product ) ..
  6. This reason include the review, how the use the product, money back guarantee, etc etc ..

    Congratulations on writing out a plan - 95% of newbies don't start this way.

    I would ask - How do you know what people are going to buy on Clickbank? How do you know that there are people waiting for your offer?

    You left out doing research in the marketplace of your choice to see what the prospects are seeking. It will guide you to knowing what products are in demand and which ones will sell well.

    Most new business owners leave this step out when starting IM. It's very important. You can learn how to do simple research by turning to the "search" function and reading the many threads that have been posted about it.

    The very best to you,

    Steve

      Hi Steve, Thank you foe your very useful advice. Well, I have planned to stick with health and finance niche, however, Professional marketers says it is very competitive niche but, I believe using my own landing page , showing creativity and uniqueness will differ my campaigns from others . but, I am just a beginner with a basic pre-planned stuff like these...

      MarketPlace research is a very strong factor to get success . I didn't have much idea for marketplace researching , but I'll definitely learn it by reading theads posted here. Plus I am willing to buy a course from Udemy which is very straight forward about clickbank marketing. please have a look at the Course .. I am sending you the link of course in PM.

      Your advice will help me improve more.

      Thanking,

      Just to piggy-back on what Steve B said, which is good advice and warning. You have the basic mechanics right. But the most important part is what are you directing all those steps at?

      Most newbies and (a lot of oldies) leave that as one of the last steps they think about, when it should be the first.

      To be honest, I'd like to hear about your market research steps or niche marketing steps more than I would your Internet marketing set-up steps. You can get that anywhere from almost anyone whose been a marketer for 3 months or so (not to discount it, but it's true).

      Where most people fall down or trip up on is the market (or niche market) research. Then they're either forced to go back and do it right or quit and jump to something else over and over (called shiny object syndrome).

      So, your step one isn't Register a domain and Connect with hosting. It's ...

      • What service or product will I provide and what way(s) can I separate myself from the competition"?
      • Who is my target market?
      • Where do they hang out and what ways will I reach out to them?
      • What methods will I use to engage them and generate traffic. (to my site or squeeze page)?
      • How will I collect them to a list?
      • How will I convert them?
      Step 2. Register a domain and Connect with hosting.

      Granted it may not "sound" as sexy or exciting as jumping right in and selling stuff in the hopes of making big money. But you'll get better results in the long run.

      You don't have to reach perfection on the above points before going to step 2. But you should have an idea before you get started. If you do that you'll be miles ahead of most newbies and many vets.

      Most people wait until they're past step 8 on your chart before they think about the above steps. Don't believe me? Just read the constant barrage of threads in this section everyday where people ask questions concerning the above steps ... after they've tried it their way and failed.

      So, to answer your question, you're not quite ready until you answer the above questions. You can answer them now or later - but you'll have to answer them. They're pretty much the price of admission into the game.

        Iam assuming you are going to outsource some of this stuff... like the email copy ?

        I am truly not trying to be a jerk but if you are going to send stuff out I would take a good look at what and how you are writing.

        Your English may need to improve because some of the stuff you talk about is a little bit off, and quite honestly hard to understand

        I truly commend you for your Plan. I really do.
        ... but you must improve in this area

          Hi Robert, Thanks your pointing out my weakness.

          Yes, I know my English skills are very weak. The reason behind it English is not my First language nor Second. Its the Third Language spoken in my region. However, I'll take admission to some English Language Learning classes to improve the skills. till then, I'll hire someone to write professional Email for marketing ...

          Hope it easy to understand,
          Thanks,

    Well Done OP!
    What a refreshing change from these classics:

    Where do i start?
    Newbie needs help.
    Please spoon feed me.
    New to IM now what?

    At least having a plan puts you ahead of 80% of the Lemmings who sign-up....

    It's very good that you created a plan, it's simple but efficient.
    Clickbank is a good beginning but i would also recommend you to go with Jvzoo.com, because you can connect it with Getresponse and create a separate list only with those people who buyed products.

    If you fail with Bing Ads or Facebook Ads i can recommend you to use Solo Ads, they are maybe more expensive than display ads but you get laser targeted traffic.

    Cheers

    You've got yourself a good start ahead of everyone else just by writing that plan. The basics steps look good as well. Building up your own email list will help create that passive income in the future when you are more established.

    For now, my advise to you would be to monitor the returns of your paid traffic. You can consider using programs like clickmagick.com to get an accurate figure of the statistics for the number of clicks and compare that against the opt-in rate and conversion rate.

    Also, when tweaking your squeeze page to improve your numbers, remember to make minor adjustments each time to ensure you know which change made the difference for you.

    All the best!

    Hi,

    Just a couple suggestions...

    -Language-
    Some people have said this here already, but I want to expand on it... Whoever writes your content/landing pages needs to have a good grasp on the English language.

    Here's another idea, have you thought about starting out by targeting people who speak the same native language (or live in the same area) as you? Facebook PPC allows this, and I'm pretty sure Bing does too. If you're selling cheap click-bank products, you don't necessarily need to target Americans with fat wallets.

    And honestly, the language barrier is just another obstacle for you, so why not make it a bit easier on yourself while learning all these new processes? Plus, you could discover an untapped market in your own language/area.

    I actually have a friend who targeted Spanish speaking individuals (he speaks very fluent Spanish) through PPC and his price per lead was insanely cheap compared to his English speaking leads. You can continue to improve your English and eventually expand to the English speaking people later.


    -Directing People Directly To A Landing Page From Facebook PPC-
    Although this works and it's always good to get emails for your list, Facebook will frown upon it. You may have a hard time getting your ads approved. Best thing you can do is start off by simply running ads for "Likes" on a fan page. Then after you run a few of those , start running ads going directly to your landing page. Alternatively, you could direct the ads to a well written product review where you link to your landing page in the review. You may get better conversions and leads doing this anyway.


    Hope that helps you buddy...
