Help with selling a digital product online?

13 replies
Hi there.

I've been an affiliate for some time and only now I've discovered different ways to make money online thanks to this forum and it's members contribution.. Email marketing is great and I am working on it atm. I am in the self-help niche for now and I wrote some freebie ebooks which received a lot of positive response from my subscribers.

I've written a relationship e-book and I really want to sell it this time! But I'm not sure how to. I badly need an "Add to Cart" page for this and would join clickfunnels but since I'm already investing on instapage and other apps I can't really afford to at this time. Any suggestions, please?

Can I upload these products on Clickbank (Not the marketplace)? And do they approve easily?

    And do they approve easily?
    No, they don't.

    There are many affiliate platforms. You can also use a simple Paypal button or simple shopping cart.

    If you have an ebook of course you can try with clickbank. They have their own requirements but they are not some scary aliens! There are thousands of products there and I don't think you're worse than many of those authors who have already been with clickbank. Make your ebook decent and try with clickbank. Also, if you want to sell your book and need payment processing you can explore some of these PayPal alternatives https://www.searchenginejournal.com/...atives-paypal/

    you just sort of answered your questions for yourself.

    combine these two, EMAIL MARKETING and SELF HELP niche, it stuff millionaires are made of. As long as you have really good content mate.

    But I still think while this is on the best niche out there, its still up there. ITs a niche that will never ever ever go away.

    Do lots of research and then take actions. Set up funnels, and test, test, test and kull the funnels not doing well, and use the funnels that are converting the best.

    helped one of my students do this, and he is up to $300 USD a day online. ANd yes, its in the self help niche.

    Click bank is getting stricter, as there is alot of crappy crap on clickbank. I mean, its like kicking the can down a dusty road .....worthless junk.

    But you need to submit to sell stuff there. It takes 1 -3 weeks to be approved, and you might have to edit your pages to conform to their rules on sales pages and what not.

    They do attract alot of affiliates for you but.

    We like video sales letters that a ADD TO CART button shows up after 5-20 minutes under the video. It converts like crazy, however in your situation, its better to test, and try paypal.

    I am sure others have a better solution. But when you are selling stuff online, and have funnels, or setting up funnels in place, its very good practise to keep things simple....YES the KISS principles apply here.

    If you don't want to use a PayPal button or Clickbank you could use another platform. I use (and like) Payhip but there are others like Gumroad and I also use JVZoo.

    Could you sell it on Amazon and have a link directly to your amazon sales page on amazon, from your website? It doesn't cost any money to self publish and amazon. Also you could direct traffic from Amazon to your website.... Hope this helps

    All the best

    If Clickbank does not approve you, there are other networks out there that will.

    If your product was in the make money online niche, Clickbank will not approve you. They got rid of a lot of products and are not even approving new ones.

    Other niches should not be a problem to get approved.

    Ideal is to have a payment processor (Clickbank, Paypal, 2Checkout.com, Stripe, etc...) and a front-end order management system (Clickbank includes the ability to manage pricing, recurring billing, affiliate management), if you use one of the other payment processors you can use a order management system such as Ejunkie, JVzoo, 1ShoppingCart, Infusionsoft

    Finally, some of these include their own marketplace - Clickbank, Ejunkie, and JVzoo fall into that category. These help give you some added exposure to potential partners/affiliates

    All of your issues are simple. Connect with Paydotcom or 1shoppingcart as a merchant. Or even 2checkout.com. Or even Payloadz. Then get a site and domain, upload the product and sales materials and images to the site. Create a squeeze page and get leads. Then use Aweber to do followup marketing to your leads for sales.
