Clickbank Sales need Help!

17 replies
Hi All

I've recently launched an e-Book on Clickbank and Amazon, on health and diet.

I've received 1 sale on each platform. Social media doesn't seem to be working for me - I think I look like a spammer and the only likes I've gotten from it are from family; needless to say there's been no leads nor customers built here.

I've also contacted bloggers and Clickbank affiliates, neither of whom have gotten back to me.

I'd really like to get this product out there because I believe so many could benefit from it.

Would appreciate your 2-cents on this one, people.

Thanks

    You should contact some of the long standing members here that participate a lot in different threads and ask if they would review your product. I do not mean write a reveiw, I mean give you their personal opinion on the product.

    you can also just google, "how to become a successful clickbank vendor" Clickbank has some decent tutorials and there are lots of people with free info available

      Hi Agmccall

      Thanks for getting back - would you be able to point me in the direction of said members, or message me with their details so that I can contact them, please? I think that's a really good idea.

      Thanks very much

      Harry

    IMO, this is the first thing you should correct.

    There are many, many variables that go into successful marketing and without digging into exactly what you are doing . . . no one can say for sure what the problem(s) might be.

    I can tell you that you have chosen a very competitive marketplace with millions of competing products and companies with huge budgets to spend on marketing that are already entrenched in the landscape. If you have not chosen a specific and narrow niche that is "in demand" you are going to struggle to differentiate and establish your own customer base.

      Hi Steve

      Cheers for getting back.

      With regards to the marketing issue, I could send you the screenshots of what I'm doing and we could perhaps look at where I'm going wrong?
      You seem to know what you're talking about and I can see that you've been on here sometime.

      Thanks, pal.

    You need to attract affiliates. If you are confident your products good and your sales page is good then i would concentrate on attracting good affiliates...offer a very high percent commission and actively try and find good affiliates who will promote it. Email them if you can and try and convince them.

    Difficult industry that.

      Hi Dddougal

      I'm actually trying to attract affiliates now. I'm offering 75% commission per sale and am messaging bloggers and the affiliates that come up on Clickbank Insights and I haven't had any luck thus far.

      Would you know any other methods? Feel free to drop us a message.

      Thanks

    This is a very tough business to get in. You have to package the product in a way that will be attractive to affiliates. Also you need affiliates with the experience to pitch your product. Wish you the best of luck on this one.

      Hi Kayme

      I'm very new to the intricacies that make up online business - what do you mean by packaging? And would you know any methods of attracting affiliates different to what I've been trying?

      My messages are open if that'd be easier for you.

    You need to prove your product first, self promote it to get 10+ sales. Just join health forum, post something useful and add your product in signature. If you need fast sales, use AdWords or Bing.

    After 10+ sales, affiliate will begin to notify your product and promote it.

    Cheers, that's great. I've been on forums and have tried to attach a copy of my e-Book which has gotten me banned for spamming - what do you mean by 'in signature'?

    Thanks

    Harry send me your clickbank product details and il have a look.

    But affiliates dont just look at commission, would also look at gravity and average dollar per sale, if you havent sold anything yet then these will be zero and n/a.

    It takes a lot of effort to make sales, Its a lot of time and money and its too risky for someone to back it if its not made a single sale yet.

    People want an easy life mate, sell some yourself and affiliates will see the proof and start coming.

  • If you are not getting any sales, you the page that people go to, to get more information about your product might not be good and needs to be re-written. What is the URL to the page where you are selling your product and I can give you an honest review and what to do.

    You must find a way to attract more afiliates because succes as a vendor depends on affiliates .Maybe you can contact clickbank to let you send a mesage on all affiliates to check your ebook .I receive some mesages in my clickbank dashboard from vendors to promote theyr products

    After looking at the site. I would first start by getting rid of your contact information. That is considered a leak and potential affiliates, the quality ones anyway, will shy away from any offer that has leaks on the page.

    I would also, if using wordpress, get a theme or plugin for building sales pages. Examples would be Instabuilder, WP Profit Builder, Thrive Themes, Optimize Press, etc. etc. Your page looks really amateurish.

    Consider hiring a copywriter that specializes in direct sales pages. You can find some decent ones at upwork

    this is a start,
