Can you still make money with click bank?

19 replies
Hi,
I am just wondering if anyone is still making money with click bank.
I find all of the products seem really spammy. Do they still work?


I have done a tests for one product and sent 300 targeted traffic leads to the website, 1 person went to the order form and never ordered.

Any tips or advise guys?

    Yes, you certainly can still make money with ClickBank.

    You may want to try selling your products to warmer traffic. For example using pre-landers or emails. This will help to build the trust and belief in a product necessary for people to buy it.

    Selling products to cold untargeted traffic can be difficult and only works in certain niches with tested and proven sales pages, so the more targeted and warmer the traffic is the better your results will be.

    Hope that helps!

    People are still making money with Clickbank as spammy products on there are nothing new and the quality of CB products vary from crap to very good.

    What traffic source did you use?
    Did you have a landing page or direct link to the CB sales page?

    Many IM'ers recommend to build a list if you're selling digital products because many people don't buy on their first visit to a sales page, particularly if the product is a $37 ebook from some unknown author with a hyped up sales page, like many Clickbank products are.

      That is awesome. I have had no luck this year promoting clickbank products but have spent hundreds trying with ppc advertising. Last year only made about $200 but lost more than that promoting. I must need a teacher's help. If you know where I can get guidance, please advise.

    This question is sort of pointless. If no one was making money with Clickbank, Clickbank would not be here anymore. You can still make money by promoting spammy products, as long as they have a good sales page, someone is bound to buy them, so Clickbank will always have products to promote.

    As for the Make Money Online niche, this is the worst niche to try to make a fortune in because it's so competitive, and since the big money is in product creation and list building, there are endless amounts of 'spammy' products being released every year.

    Get into a different niche. If you find one without an authority, and can capitalize on it, you'll strike gold.

    That is hardly even a test, more like a "hit and run" method which is perhaps the most common marketing mistake made by affiliates.

    I personally know some of the top affiliates selling Clickbank products, and until recently I had been doing exceptionally well myself. My focus now is on other business interests, which were originally funded by sales through Clickbank and other affiliate networks.

    Every successful Clickbank affiliate has built a list of buyers. IMO, this holds true for most other affiliate programs including Amazon, Linkshare, CJ, Shareasale, etc.

    Essentially, it works well to follow this format:

    1. Choose a series of Clickbank products in the same niche to promote
    2. Create an ebook about the niche to give away, or sell at low cost ($5-$17)
    3. Create a sales page offering the ebook
    4. Send traffic to the ebook offer (I've always used article syndication almost exclusively for driving traffic)
    5. Capture the lead coming to the website
    6. Deploy email auto responders with the Clickbank products
    7. For continuity, consider adding additional affiliate products from other networks.

    Find products with gravity over than 40 - 100 and less refund rate than ~7% .

    cbengine offers you a trial to check out the refund rates, i think it's for 1 week, if you'd like promote clickbank products I would spend a week using that trial to create a list of products that seem to convert (i ll check out the sales pages myself and ask my self "does this convince me?")

    When you're done with the list, start promoting

      you can try this method....

      1. send cool visitor to your squeeze page
      2. make them hot to enter their email by video presentation.
      3. collect extremely potential buyer's email by this way.
      4. and then send your product with nice short description.
      This way will definitely work for you. you can easily create your video presentation via fiverr at cheap prize. I personally provide this service.

    This is almost like asking if porn still sells. So yes to clickbank, and YES to porn.

    Squeeze page, email marketing, affiliate link, sales. Easy, all day.

    Yeah it still works. All I'm doing with Clickbank right now on the affiliate side is direct linking and that alone is doing very well for me.

    Clickbank has some of the best digital products in the marketplace! Today you have to separate yourself from everyone else who is just pitching their affiliate links.

    That all you see in this space outside of your circle and it's no wonder why 98% don't make enough money to make ends meets.

    Slow down, take the time and you will have to expand your mind just to be able to handle the money so more comes in....

    It has some stellar products.

    In the fitness world, Lyle McDonald, Nate Miyaki and Jason Ferruggia are all really good guys with awesome information.

    In the IM world you have Andre Chaperon's products (including Autoresponder Madness) and I'm sure there are plenty more.

    There are some great BJJ players with products on there.

    It's just a case of finding the guys you know, like and trust before punting their products.

      related to fitness, unless lyle mcdonald hired someone to do his sales copy,he has 2000+ word sales pages that are very hard to convert.

      we chatted about this on facebook, his excuse is that he doesnt even try and sell to the common person, his products are for those that know him and that high end fat loss niche he caters to.

      a nightmare for a marketer

    Yes. Clickbank does have some high quality products that provide value to the customers. When you do the proper groundwork of identifying and nurturing your leads and building a relationship with them and then only offering them products that they need, a sale would happen.
    As for the testing of the product, my observation is that even some of the rehashed or copied content gives value when done right. But it is also true that a $7 eBook is not sufficient for a newbie to learn everything that is required to succeed. If one spends effort to properly learn the techniques, one can surely succeed.
    My honest advise would be to find a good coach and take his/her guidance. People have succeeded in every niche (and using clickbank) and there is no reason why you can't. All the best!
