Should I Include An Email Opt In Page For A Clickbank Product

Hi guys,
I have been wanting to market this product from Clickbank (it's a how to make money online course) using Facebook Ads. Now my question is even though I know that the person visiting the link I send them to will ask them for their email, should I still try to get their email for myself before sending them to that link. Would it look too spammy and risk losing the sale?
Thanks in advance.

    Two things:

    1) Why would you spend money on FB ads in order to build another marketer's email list?

    2) If you collected your own email addresses, what would you do with them?

    If you plan to start a subscriber list and build a relationship with your prospects, ask yourself what you can offer them in return. Are you committed to the niche you've selected? Unless you can differentiate yourself from the herd of MMO product peddlers, you'll have an almost impossible task to gain any traction in that market.

    But if your plan is to promote a one-off product via paid advertising, the return had better be worth it. For that reason, you should avoid potential leaks - like linking straight to an opt-in page, for example.

    The best way to sell Clickbank product is to firstly build an email list in the niche you are in by offering a free ebook etc in return for email Signups (you can use PLR Ebooks) .
    When you gather these emails you can then market the clickbank product from your niche to these subscribers over and over again. That is how the big guys do it!

      Thanks for the advice Hardworker2013. I like the strategy you mention and I am researching putting out an ebook to gain my own mailing list.

    IMO you should always try to collect emails

    Personally i wouldn't promote an affiliate product that has a sales page that includes an opt-in form embedded in it. Or even worse... an affiliate product/link that leads to the vendors squeeze form. You might have to choose another product to promote. The best way IMO is to generate the lead, email follow up to them, and make sure you link to a product where the 1-time sale is huge... or a program where you earn recurring commissions each month as long as the customer remains in the program.

    Always collect emails. You lose a lot of money if you don't.

    My advice for you is to gather emails from your niche and make a list of it. Once you got the list, send them emails letting them know about your product. Make your email original, informative and entertaining so that they will be attracted to your brand.

    if you really want to make money online - you MUST collect emails

    sure - there's a few ways to make money without doing it... but NONE OF THEM produce as much income long term as an email list

    ALWAYS build an email list first and develop a relationship with them. This might mean a few less sales up front because not everyone on your list will open the promo email with the Clickbank link. However, the value of having an email list can't be overstated. Otherwise, you have to continuosly run ads to make more sales. With an email list, you pay once and the customer is yours for life (or until they unsubscribe). Plus, if your adverting source suddenly changes the rules and your paid ads no longer work or they won't approve them, what then? (and this has happened). Build an email list.

    First: ALWAYS ask for the email before selling anything.

    then sell.

    Yes, you should collect their email adresses.

    No, you shouldn't send them directly to the course page.

    collect the emails to build a list and market to them over time.

    Send them to offers across varying subjects, not just the one they may have opted into.

    If you don't know how to do email marketing - learn.

    I have a friend who uses FB Ads and he sends direct traffic to some offers similar to CB and it has been very profitable for him.

    However, he has over 15:years experience online in paid traffic and has a great understanding of how to create the right ad to attract the right audience.

    Not everyone buys his affiliate products but enough of them do.

    I don't recommend new marketers follow this approach especially if you are thinking of paying for traffic to send to a low cost CB product.

    Do what others said above...

    Collect emails and learn email marketing.

    My friend is a little eccentric and does things his own way but this guy crossed over the $1M Mark online years ago.

      Why are you spending money to send traffic to a seller who has an optin?

      This is how that works:
      You pay for the ad,
      I click on your link,
      the seller's freebie sounds good, so I sign up,
      the seller sends follow up email messages, with offers,
      I buy.

      Credit goes to the seller, not to you, because I was in his/her list, responded to his/her pitch.

      I would find a product owner whose site doesn't compete with me.

    Collect their email. There is a way for you to collect it not in spammy way. One of the way was to tell them about the page as your friend page.

    Get in touch with them and become thier friend. Recommend and become expert in their eyes. You will feel much better to have that relationship with them.

    Whether you use paid ads or otherwise, this is the key to the vault.

    Too many marketers and wannabes focus on the wrong thing - clicks, opt-ins, pageviews or some other vanity metric.

    If you are paying per click, the objective is to make as many sales as possible while paying for as few clicks as possible.

    Get the right people to click your ad, opt into your list, etc. Send the others on their way. You'll both be happier.
