Building a clickbank product

15 replies
Hi all

I've been involved in IM for quite a while now and have had a number of projects, PPC, website flipping ect.

While these have been okay they haven't really made much money, only a few $/£ here and there.

Because of this I'm looking to get into selling my own products on clickbank as i have heard that's where the good money is to be made.

I'm already familiar with the processes but would like to check that I haven't missed anything

1, get a account with clickbank

2, write/outsource your e-book

3, outsource sales letter

4,set up download page ect

However my main concern is how much money am I looking at to get started?

I know where to get a good copywriting service for around $200 (its on the wso forum) but am worried about the cost of a quality ghost writer.

How much am I looking at for a quality 60-80 page e-book?

Can anybody recommend a service?

Thanks for your time
Dean

    Write your own ebook. (I mean why you need outsourcing the ebook? Can you tell on what niche you are looking to get an ebook?)

    Outsource the sales page and images.

    This would work cheaper.

        Then do a little research on freelance sites or on WF, to pick your guy/girl.

        Ask for their previous work examples.

        Ask them how long they do updates to the ebook content if you are not satisfied with some part of the ebook.

          Prices will vary widely depending on what the bidder believes they are worth.

          To give you an example, I recently outsourced the writing of 50 historical articles to help promote some products I have.

          I used craigslist to find a writer to do the assignment.

          I got price quotes of anywhere from a few cents a word to $500 per article. The higher priced ones were from college professors. I expect they do not get much work.

          The person I chose I paid $10 per completed article of about 600 words and the quality and delivery performance were excellent.

          But in making my choice, I reviewed work from all applicants that I considered.

          Choosing just based on price will not work.

          Also, if you can get it, a few references are nice so you can verify the timeliness of the ghostwriter. The last thing you want is your ebook to be delayed by a few months because the ghostwriter is not good at keeping schedules.

    As you stated you can get great Copy writing in the WSO forum. I've seen ghostwriting offered there too. In fact I've used services of other Warriors with good results.

    I could be wrong but I think you could have a great product with less than 60 to 80 pages. Just my thought.

    The stock answer to your question is to go to scriptlance or one of the other "lance" sites. However, I prefer to find talent in house, on the WF that is.

      Yes I agree with this. Last ebook I had written was by a lady John Gnomes recommended to me. She's great and will do the research and writing of a 80 page ebook for £500 + vat. Unfortunately she isn't taking on anymore projects in the near future.

    Hi Dean,
    If your ebook is in a small niche you may be able to find an enthustic person within that niche that would love to write a small ebook for you just to see their work published although I'd always suggest you do offer some payment. The best way to find such persons is in forums for the niche or by posting in offline magazines or trade publications.
    Hope that helps?

    Rich

    ps. good to see another North East warrior.

      I agree both need to be of high quality but I disagree about outsourcing them. It's about outsourcing them to someone that can do a good job. There's no way I could have written an ebook as I'm dyslexic but that hasn't stopped me having a number of them in various niches on clickbank. However in many cases quality writers cost bigger bucks.

    thanks for the help everybody

    also how much would you charge for a ebook 60-80 pages long.

    i was thinking 37$

    that way i would need 40 something sales to break even. thats doable right?

      Dean,
      That's a bit like how long is a peice of string! Ebooks are sold for anywhere from $1 to $197+. It's about seeing what other products or ebooks are in the same niche and what your customers will pay. So test at a few price points until you find the one that sells best.

    I dont think I could read an 80 page ebook... Surely you could shorten it a little?

    I have read some really good ebooks, that have only had like 20/30 pages.
    I very much doubt many people would even finish the product to..

    Would you read an 80 page ebook?

    Steve M

    good luck though

      actully i would consider anything less then 60-80 pages as short, but thats just me

      i guess 20-30 pages would be more affordable to have wrote, but surly they would fetch a far lower price?

      i suppose i could have a 20-30 page e-book and then a 50-60 page up-sell.

      thanks for the idea

    dean - you definitely could make a shorter less expensive product and then the more expensive, slightly longer version as an upsell down the road. Or, if the material is easy to split into portions/topics, then you could create several bonuses with all that information...and thus support a higher price. But it depends on the material, your target market, etc.
