Help, Clickbank experts! Why don't Clickbank products sell on my sites???

54 replies
Hi all. I'm what I refer to as a "seasoned newbie," or maybe even an intermediate affiliate marketer. I have about a dozen sites up, generate a bit of traffic and make a little money here and there.

My question is - why can't I seem to sell Clickbank???

I generate a reasonable number of hops. Just yesterday, across my two best CB sites (one is relationship site, one is wedding niche), I had around 50. But not one person even went to the order page?

In one case I have a product with a gravity of around 90 that has had hundreds of hops over the past couple of months - and not one sale.

Any advice?

Is it the products I've chosen? My presell? (And what makes an effective presell?) Anything else?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Adam

    Hi Adam,

    Nobody can possibly answer this reliably or accurately without seeing everything you're doing. (And even then it may not be a formality).

    Reading your post quickly, the two things that "stick prominently in my mind" are (a) you don't mention list-building and establishing relationships with people (and you're not going to sell many ClickBank products without doing that), and (b) the one gravity figure you've given is 90, which would probably put me off promoting a product.

    I'm wondering whether whether this recent post, and the two others linked to inside it might actually help you a little?

    Making money from selling Clickbank products is, broadly, about three things:-

    (i) You have to select products wisely (there are some suggested guidelines here): without getting this part right, it doesn't matter what else you do ;

    (ii) You have to pre-sell effectively to well-targeted traffic;

    (iii) You have to build a list and form relationships with the people on it, so that they'll buy on the strength of your recommendation.

    These things aren't optional: you really do need to do all three of them, otherwise you're probably chasing 10% of the possible money and ignoring the other 90%.

    There's a huge turnover of ClickBank affiliate marketers trying other ways and mostly not being too successful, but I think the above is pretty typical of those who make steady money from it.

    Key concept: people generally buy ClickBank products because they trust someone's recommendation. They buy on the strength of your relationship with them, built through your website and your autoresponder emails to your list subscribers.

      Adam,

      First off, making money online is not as quick as most people think it is and it takes time. You have to be willing to put some time and effort into it.

      That being said, if you do not have patience (as i see) and want to make money quickly selling clickbank products, the best tip i can give you is PPC or Paid Per Click. PPC is the fastest way to promote anything online.

      If i were you, i would start learning aboud Paid Per Click traffic because this could be the solution to your problems.

      Plus, let me add just another thing; one of the best ways to make money online is to have a great plan. Start working hard on promoting the product you want to sell, but do it in many different ways.

      Try many different methods, not just one.


      All the best,
      Devid

        Google seems to be cracking down a bit more on direct PPC campaigns to affiliate sales pages. Has anyone else had an issue from this type of marketing? Is the fix to build your own landing/squeeze pages to drive the traffic?

        The only personal experience I have had with this was an issue on a squeeze page that I set up that offered a free product. Google stopped the ad because they said it seemed like spam. The funny thing was that it was legit. Ohh well...

          Presto, to confirm - ANOTHER one of my recent attempts was to use Adwords to drive traffic to a squeeze page with an opt-in giveaway. Not only was my ad disapproved, my Adwords account was banned. I truly had no idea this was verboten and now I've built an entire blog at the URL and am in the process of trying to get Google to un-ban the account n

          So yes - be careful!

    Thanks, both. Actually you have both helped me here more than you probably think.

    Alexa, I've only recently begun list building - and in neither of the two niches I've mentioned. I'm beginning to see the need for list promotion for Clickbank products, especially, since they don't necessarily have the "built-in" credibility of, say, a product on Amazon - or the "no risk" element of simply clicking on an Adsense ad.

    Devid, I'm absolutely willing to be patient - just trying to determine if the things I'm being patient DOING are the right ones. LOL Which is why I've recently decided to join the War Room and spend a LOT more time here on WF learning. In fact, I have had some recent luck (just in the beginning stages) with Adsense, and have thought about investigating other PPC opportunities.

    The attraction of CB is obvious - the substantial commissions. But I also see that, as you say, developing a real plan and working that plan is critical.

    And again, Alexa, one of the current online "gurus" that I've had the opportunity to correspond with a bit told me recently that list-building and email marketing, in his opinion, produces substantially better results than simply creating niche sites and promoting products there.

    Thank you both again! Have a good weekend!

    Best,
    Adam

      i see that you are really motivated, and that's absolutely fantastic.

      Regard the war room, you did the BEST investment in your IM career!

    I've found the little bit of success I had with Clickbank was due to the quality of the traffic I was sending. So, yes, if they are pre-sold it makes a big difference.

    The best and most accurate way to get results. Good marketing research. You must know the exact marketing funnel or marketing process that sales your product. You find that out by finding 5 to 10 Successful sites or companies that sell your exact product or service walk through each step of there process with a fine tooth comb and take notes or mind map it out. Then to make real money you must master Testing and Tracking. Test headlines, test images, test videos, test open paragraph etc. To find the right combinations that moves your product. You can use Google Analytic s Website Optimization. You can run split test and multi- variant testing. Know you market. And Solve A Problem They are having. That is the key.

      SEOExpert999, thanks. Good advice. I believe I've been way too casual about simply building a quality niche site, and then populating it with relevant, high-gravity products - thinking that the content would inspire the need, and that need would drive interest/curiosity in the products.

      That is happening - because I get decent CTR on my niche sites. But almost never a purchase.

      My conclusion - while I am inspiring some sense of need and curiosity, that is not enough to have someone lay down $37 (or whatever).

      As others have said here, I'm beginning to see that "quality traffic" doesn't just mean "interested in the niche." It means "looking for a solution to a problem."

      Researching what others are doing and then testing that on my sites makes all the sense in the world.

      Again, thanks!

        Possibly so.

        It's almost always difficult to know exactly what's gone wrong when a ClickBank affiliate site isn't working as one hoped. An interesting experiment, though, if you feel like it, and if you have real traffic, might be to change the links for all those high gravity products to low gravity products in the same niche (with suitable sales pages) and see if sales suddenly start materialising. Many have found that they can, often for some of the reasons explained in this post, I strongly suspect.

          This can be very productive, and not just for CB products.

          A lot of people get hung up on the best-seller lists, in part because a lot of teachers tell them to. And it's not a bad place to start.

          However, if there seems to be either one or just a few dominant products, you can run into the "oh, that again" problem. People find your content, click your link, see a familiar sales page and say "Oh, that again" before clicking away.

          If you can find a high-quality but less well-known item to offer instead, it can jump start things. I can't prove it, but I have a feeling that recommending something besides the dominant product adds a little credibility to your offer or review.

            See, this is the kind of thing I wouldn't have considered. So thank you. Definitely worth a try - and I now remember reading before that the best selling products are not necessarily the best to promote, especially for someone without a lot of experience. I'm going to give it a try. Can't hurt! Thank you both!

              This can certainly be true. But bear in mind, also, that high-gravity products are very often not the best-selling ones: there's actually no intrinsic correlation between high gravity and high sales volumes, as explained here.

      Thanks, richgrad. I actually did create a second account - but only used it for a new site/products. I'll try this and see. I have read that some people have success with this, either because of some reporting problem with CB or link theft.

      No. You suspect, that people suspect, that CB products might be a scam. Looking at my CB stats, I know that's not true. :p

      Newbieee - the usual average conversion is 250 hops to 1 sales.

      that is considered higher end of the average.

      it can go up to 500 hops per sale.
      May I ask where on Earth you got those figures from?

      Presto Smith - Google seems to be cracking down a bit more on direct PPC campaigns to affiliate sales pages. Has anyone else had an issue from this type of marketing?
      Presto, I believe and I may be wrong because I don't direct link to affiliate offers but I don't think Google allows any direct linking via PPC to affiliate pages. As for squeeze pages, I suspect the information on the squeeze page is unlikely to deliver on the promise made in the PPC ad. Having said that, this is what I believe to be the case and will happily stand corrected if I'm wrong.

        Sounds about right to me, Richard! Essentially what I was told by G about my squeeze page.

      True. Hubpages and squidoo have implemented CB link checker and they either lock the hub/lens and ask you to remove it or they delete account directly. It's not about spam or spun hubs/lens but it's gone to extent that any genuine product review with CB link is considered as spam on these network. So yes, CB is considered as spam in many sites.

    hi there adam

    ur stats are too low.

    50 hops is considered low.

    the usual average conversion is 250 hops to 1 sales.

    that is considered higher end of the average.

    it can go up to 500 hops per sale.

    so u got to send more traffic.

      lol

      A conversion rate of 1/250 is average? So if someone is paying $0.50c per click then they need to spend $125 on average to make one clickbank sale? hmmm

    By the way, all - I am (painfully) aware that my traffic is still in the low range, at least for most of my sites. But cumulatively, over a period of weeks or months, there is enough traffic that EVEN at the conversion rates suggested here, I should have more sales than I do.

    Truly, I'm not unrealistic about what is required or the work involved. Just trying to flatten my learning curve as much as I can.

    Thank you ALL for you insights and suggestions! Truly appreciated!

    In order to successfully sell a Clickbank product ...you need to be very very convincing that it will work for the buyer. I have a hard time selling Clickbank products as well ...I am now putting links from Shareasale on most of my websites to see how they do. I hope I have more luck making sales from Shareasale vendors compared to my luck with selling Clickbank products.

      *sigh*

      There is a method that works remarkabley well for the uniquely quirky conversions of Clickbank products; read post #2 by Alexa Smith. Marketers who generally follow these basic steps are earning four figures a month or even more. There may be other ways of course, but you could be batting .300 by just building and nurturing a list.

      Most CB vendors do not have the marketing acumen or resources for developing sales pages for conversion as do well-capitalized companies such as Amazon. Aside from a mismatched target market, the vendor sales pages are the problem for the most part, not necessarily the products. It takes effective relationship building and pre-selling to maximize sales conversions. Even so with Amazon and other affiliate programs, for that matter.

      PPCprof, I do appreciate this point-of-view. But I'm trying to understand the difference between 1000 hops in a day or 1000 hops in a month or 1000 hops in 3 months. Shouldn't they all convert the same, assuming they're from the same site?

      So whether conversion is 0.25% or 1% or 2%, does it matter whether it's stretched out over a period of time?

      Again, I'm not challenging - just trying to understand if I'm missing something.

        Conversion rate is an average conversion over a period of time. The larger your sample the more accurate your conversion rate will be. You might have 500 clicks with no sales then all of the sudden have 5 sales in your next 100 clicks. That's why you should not judge your success on just 50 or 100 clicks. It's not statistically significant.

        If you are flipping a coin and trying to get heads but the first time you flip it it comes up tails would you just quit and say, "This coin flipping doesn't work!! I'll never get heads!!" ????

        Of course not.

        You should hang in there until you get a relevant sample size.

            The message should come through loud and clear - treat this as any other business with real thinking, feeling customers, build relationships, be useful and you will be rewarded.

            I'm not sure why people think that words on a page or a big claim on a page is going to suddenly cause a mass amount of people to suddenly start giving you money - but if they see you give a damn, that you want to help them with the challenge they have, will lend them your time, experience, tips, advice and insight then they will reward you.

            To do all of that you need a platform...a list, a blog, or a reputation.

            Change your thinking from "how many people can I get to this webpage to sell product X" to " how many people can I help with problem Y...and have them become trusted friends?

      it comes down to your copy and your offer.

      once you master this and get some nice targeted traffic, you will see some nice sales.

      I make my living from clickbank and membships sites and it took me a while to master this, but now is quite easy. And when you can do this and outsource and upscale you can make as much as you really want or need.

    You have received some great info. Let me tell you how I do it and I hope you can see the power of this. I take the CB site itself and convert it into a short page that will peek the visitor interest to want to see more. I make sure I put my optin box on the page to build my list. I then create thousands of keyword combinations that will lure visitors that are already searching for the product.

    What I use is not spinner software, it's a thousand times better. With it I dictate the percentage of uniqueness from page to page to page. Now when that is done I use a software that I setup to create backlinks for the 2000 to 10,000+ pages. The backlinks are created by the time I set all the way to 3 months on up into the future.

    This is how I dominate any niche. Keyword research pays a big role. I hope this helps.

    Is it the products I've chosen? My presell? (And what makes an effective presell?) Anything else?

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

      Lassy, I have considered that myself quite a lot. But I've also met so many people who have made a lot of money promoting CB. So I dunno...

      Just wondering (again, one of those questions that no one ever seems to answer) whether most of you who are successful IMers focus ONLY on one type of product (CB, Amazon, eBay, other affiliate programs, etc.) or do a combination of things?

        I do a combonation. I use Adsense, Amazon, and other affiliate companies like golfsmith.com and esurance.com from Commission Junction. You see those people making money from clickbank because they are usually using PPC and have a budget to allow them to take weeks before finding a profitable campaign.

        If you do the SEO way, then I think selling real products outside of MMO is the way to go 110% - you have to start with UNIQUE & AMAZING content...if a searcher finds your page and is amazed, then Google will like it too and the money will follow.

    • Give them the price before they click the link.
    • Make sure they know where there going. (click bank)
    • Make sure they know the name of the program before they click.

    This way, when they click you know that they know it's price and what the hell it is. Or don't.

    This works with a entertainment product I use on a site that gets 300-400 uniques a day. The price is $39 but I've made two sales today just by getting all of the QUESTIONS they may have answered from the start.

    But you simply might have a Click Bank product that does not convert.

      There are perhaps hundreds of such products all over the internet, but the one I found to be the most helpful for me has been Turn Words Into Traffic by Jim Edwards, available on Clickbank.

      The methods covered in this old classic are surprisingly similar to what Alexa Smith and other consistently very successful article marketers have been posting all along. It has worked astoundingly well for me for many years in several affiliate programs including Clickbank and Amazon.

    Saturation is the answer to your question. Develop your own product with a twist and sell it yourself. I had problems making money in the past with affiliate marketing and I decided to redesign my own product web sites and now I'm doing very well with it.

    Well I'm a newbie - truly newbie - but from my 1.5 months of experience with CB (I have my own site and my own product which I'm not sure if I can add it here or not but here it is any way "WPSynonymizer: I have already sold a few - which is amazing considering I have just a tiny bit of organic Google traffic - absolutely no link building or referrers - and it still sells - and it's brand new product - so to me selling CB products do work.

    P.S.
    I also have 2 other affiliate products that are connected to my product on my page "WPSynonymizer" and while they do get hops - I haven't got a sale yet - so what does it mean to me? Create your own product !!!

    Just by looking at the post I would say take a look into your pre-sell and try split testing different copy on your website. It could be something as small as a call to action or a headline who knows. But split test all the time.

    You must have great products to sell, products so great that people can't live without them.... especially in hard times like we've had the past 7 years, with so many people out of work.

    The question you should ask yourself is why would anyone want to purchase your product, when money is so hard to come by for the average family today?

    I am not picking on you either...because this is a question I ask myself everytime I sell a product.
    Another thing, numbers don't mean much, you can have 50,000 hits or 50 hits, but it all depends on if you have a product that some one so is desperate for, that no matter what, they'll buy from you....even if they had to save every penny from returnable bottles they found on the ground.

    When you can find a product like this, that people have got to purchase, then you'll become an internet millionare

    I enjoy weekly direct deposits from Clickbank.

    I started this business the beginning of the year, with LIST-BUILDING. So, I totally agree that you need to continue to build your list and a relationship with your subscribers. If you match your promoted product with your target audience well, you will have a better chance at selling.

    Put an offer on your thank you page after opt-in also.

    Hope to help.

    Clickbank is tough- like so many other people said, you really have to build a relationship with them.

    Clickbank like any other products in IM, work on a variety of factors, the ad copy, the particular product you are promoting and your traffic, they simply may not be interested in that particular product
