      When you say Google with creating blog, are you referring to Blogger, Wordpress or both?

    As a matter of fact, blogging is the best way to promote affiliate products (Clickbank, CJ,etc) for free.

    Do you have a blog?

    I don't know, but list-building never worked for me, especially if I'm promoting some ClickBank product as affiliate. Now, I send visitors directly to the offer, and yes they buy that product/service.

    Since, I believe, if I need something, I'll spend money immediately. When I sent readers to the offer directly through YouTube, my conversion rates tripled. In addition, I focus on guest posting as well, but follow the same model.

    Other than that, there are lots of ways to promote your products - join forums, SEO, guest posting, YouTube, SlideShare, and etc.

        Through YouTube... I post affiliate link in the description. But, please remember that it's better to put whole affiliate link, rather than cloaking it with some name... I've currently around 650 videos, from different accounts. And, I'm earning minimum $80 per day...

        One more thing, it's about choosing the right niche too. Some niches have low conversion rate and some have high conversion rate... So, conversion rate is a lot more important than the actual view count.

      Reading this makes me SO happy! I have mentioned this and asked about it here on WF many times. but mostly you hear the opposite. I never understood the idea that you should take a potential buyer, make them jump thru hoops such as opting in on your squeeze page and reading your emails and then eventually ask them to buy the thing they were looking for in the first place! Certainly list building and email marketing is vital in many cases but other times getting the customer to the sales page can be vital.


      If you walk into a store and the sale clerk says "may I help you?" and you tell them what you want - shouldn't they take you right to that item? Of course....


      Question - why do you say to use the un-cloaked sales page URL in the description? Do you mean the Clickbank URL that CB provides? Not the affililiate link provided by the vendor that show "hoplink" and your CB id?
      Thanks

        Agree with you 100%. I don't depend on the list now. Of course, it perhaps works, but no in my case, and I'm earning a living without it... I just focus on getting long-term traffic, rather than spending money for paid traffic - for example, YouTube (mainly), SlideShare, Guest Posting (10%) only, and etc.

        Traffic keeps on coming, even if I'm sleeping, and people keep on buying the stuff through my links. I don't have to worry about checking paid traffic status, and etc. In invested my time in the long-term, evergreen traffic. If I say, it's the best passive income, it will be utterly right. I can stay away from my laptop for 5-6 months, but still earn around $3000 to $4000 per month without any single effort.

        And, about the link, it's best to paste the whole affiliate link which you get through ClickBank. It look weird, but it's safe. And, yes, people still click on them and buy products/services.

    Hi:

    As you will see there are hundreds of ways to promote products from Clickbank.

    Determine your objective, set your budget, test your ads, tweek your results, and repeat the process.
    You will probably get 20-100 responses.

    Check out which ones make the most sense to you, compare 3-4 methods and pick the one that you think works best for you.

    One simple method is to develop a squeeze page, drive traffic to that squeeze page either by:
    solo ads
    Youtube Videos
    FaceBook ads
    Google ads
    The list could go on and on.

    You have many options to choose from.

    Good Luck,

    Dan

        Here are some simple steps.

        1. Find a product that you would like to promote
        2. Go through the sales page & affilates page to understand the product well enough
        3. Do some research on google abt the product read what others are using to promote this product. (if you can buy the product that's great, but that's not practical , so it's fine to jst do more research)
        4. Take notes of all important points that you feel abt the product, both good & bad.
        5. Now just create a ppt of all these points in structured manner ( think abt yourself as buyer, what would you like to see abt a product? E.g., What is product all about, What is this solving, Why should some one pay for this? What's good in this ? what's bad in this? Who can be beneficial ? Etc.,)
        6. Download any free screen capture software & capture your ppt as you present with your own voice. ( You can even just show the product landing page & keep talking if don't wish to go ppt route)
        7. Upload it to YouTube.
        8. Do basic Youtbe SEO.

        If you cannot get a screen recorder,
        6. Capture each slide in your ppt as a Single Image.
        7. Go to Youtbe Editor & upload each image to create a video.
        8. Add a Roylaty Free music
        9. Publish the video
        10. Make sure basic SEO is taken care.

        If you have a chosen a specific niche, I would suggest you create a specific channel & upload a few more relavant videos.

        Uploading just 1 video will not get you many results, so be consistent in uploading relevant videos.

        One other thing I would suggest is, try to create FB page & Pinterest Boards. You can promote your products slowly there as well. Be sure not to spam the groups.

        Hope this helps ...

        I understand your Niche Selection, but it is also important to select a Niche where you have some knowledge thereof. Knowledge is your only secret weapon, because you need to be able to inspire interest within your audience.

        You also need to be cautious with gravity, because the higher the gravity the fiercer the competition will be. And remember you are competing with an exceptionally large crowd of affiliate marketers.

        I'm quite familiar with Click Bank, as I am both an Affiliate and a Vendor. Regrettably, to share all the detail on getting started is way to much to cramp into a single message.

        May I suggest sending me a private message on Warrior Forum?

    I use clickbank products to monetize my Health & Wellness website and my Dog website. I usually do a series of posts that are relevant to the product plus one detailed review and then direct link to their sales page.

    If I don't have a website that is relevant but still want to promote, I create a review video and post it on YouTube.

    Regards traffic, I mostly do social media but occasionally use Bing ads, instagram ads and youtube ads.

    Might sound really simple and basic, but ppc is the best way to promote clickbank products. Create an optin page on a pre-sell page. When they optin, lead them directly to the offer. The toher way is to simply do it with direct linking if you don't want to set up a website of your own.

    You could use a free optin page from aweber. It won't be that great, but it could be a starting point. However if you're serious about making any kind of money online, i think your own website is a must. Otherwise you're just leaving alot of money on the table.
    If yo uare still reluctant, then i would suggest you simply go the direct linking route with ppc. Many people are making good money like this, but even they are not making as much as they could by having their own website with a squeeze page. Hope that helps.

    Best Regards,

    The fastest(and best) way to promote Clickbank products is to create a short report and sell it for $10-$20.

    This way, you can attract affiliates to drive tons of traffic to you. That will build your list much faster than any other method...unless you think you can drive more traffic than an army of affiliates.

    And best of all, it will be a buyers list...not a list of freebie seekers.

    Then you find a high quality product in your niche, write and email...and click send.

    It will get you where you want to go much faster than the traditional give away a free report method or direct linking.

    All of the top affiliates have one thing in common: They have their own product in the niche.

    I hope this helps.

    these are all WRONG, in a way the responses above.

    The best way it search online for a day, and see where your MOST LIKELY prospect is hiding out and hanging out.

    Then just advertise there.

    I have created BIG PAY DAY$ doing this, online the last 10 years.

    Do not wait for people and your target market to come to you. GO TO THEM FIRST!...... this is how millions of dollars are being made while you sit in your chair and read this.

    The idea these days is to WORK SMARTER, not work HARDER, like people say.

    Once you do this, the veil is unlifted and you can spend more money and reinvest say 30% of your profits back into your business. :-)

    I agree that Youtube videos still work great to promote Clickbank products as I have done/am still doing this strategy. But it is also true that there is no "best" way to promote. Some other strategies produce great results for others. It really is just a matter of testing.

    Thanks


    Sure, here are my suggestions though some marketers may not agree and dismiss as old school.

    1. Article Marketing

    Despite the fact that this is the oldest method, article marketing still works if done correctly.

    In the past marketers used to write at least 250 word article and stuffed keywords in title and content.

    But that is no longer the case after Google made several changes which affected the main directory Ezine Articles.

    Your content needs not to be just unique but helpful and useful in answering people's needs and wants when they typed keywords to look for something in Google.

    Besides Ezine, you can submit to Articles Base and Article City.

    2. Blogging

    If your articles still get rejected by Ezine Articles consistently, you may consider other directories or blogging as an alternative to get and share your content across.

    I first started out with Blogger but now I used Wordpress which took me 3 years to master from 2010 to 2013.

    Then find blogs related to your niche and start commenting.

    You can also offer to do guest posts on their blogs and them to do the same on your blog.

    So instead of one, you can leverage on 2 methods within this method.

    3. Classified Advertising

    Some of you guys may find it hard to believe .

    But this is how I made my first $40 on Paydotcom and $100 on Clickbank using this method.

    What this means is posting your ad to several classified sites.

    Though there are many, the ones I now sticked to consistently are Adlandpro, Adpost, Backpage, Classified Ads, Craiglist, Gumtree and USA Free Ads.

    4. E-Book And Report Publishing

    This is my other favourite method of marketing along with classified advertising.

    Instead of submitting just 1 article, you take a bunch of 5-10 articles - written by yourself - and compiled into 1 PDF e-book and report.

    Then you submit to sites like Issuu, Scribd and Slideshare

    5. Forum Marketing

    You can go to forums like this one.

    May or may not be internet marketing depending on what niche you choose.

    Then create your account with your photo and signature linking to your squeeze page.

    But don't go spamming people.

    Just post valuable content be it threads and posts like what you see me doing now.

    6. Facebook Groups

    You can search for and join Facebook groups related to your niche.

    But like forums, don't go about spamming people.

    Instead provide good quality content as in answering members' needs and wants.

    7. Youtube Marketing

    Though I am not a video marketing fanatic, others may be.

    You can shoot a series of videos sharing the world about yourself, what you do, why you choose internet marketing and important lessons and tips you learn from it.

    Set up a Gmail account first and then go about creating your Youtube channel.

    I know a guy called Joshua Elder making 6 figures just from shooting Youtube videos promoting high-ticket offers.

    Hope these help to answer your questions.

    Facebook groups.

    Create one of your own on your niche.

    Then join other groups in your niche and began commenting with positive and valuable answers to members questions.

    For every person who liked your comment, add him or her as your friend before asking whether he or she will be interested to join your group.

    Then once you added about 100-200 people, you continued providing valuable content in both yours and other people's groups.

    Once you hit about 500 people, that is when you created an optin page linking to your own or other people's products you promoted as an affiliate and invite them in.

    To be honest, I rather have 500 people who knew, liked and trusted me rather than 1000 who don't but whom I simply bought through paid and solo ads.

    Because I am not just looking at immediate but long-term income as well.

    There are no best ways unfortunately, there are easier ways than others. Being an affiliate for a $25-$33 front end offer. I don't bother with list building, or sending people to an optin page. (1) the numbers don't make sense for ROAS. (2) I want impulse buyers.

    I use offline methods, editorial presell pages or send directly to the sales page. I use paid traffic it's fast and simple.

    It still annoys me that people here still say get free traffic - how is it FREE? Are you not paying for your time to build links or whatever it is a free method consist of? Or maybe you hire a service or person to do it, Does that make it FREE?

    If you have $90 for a month, use that for paid traffic.
