56 replies
Hello, I'm involved with clickbank and I've done some advertising through classified ads. No sales yet and I'm not surprised it just couldn't be that easy. I'm not really interested in writing reviews or articles, what other methods could work is what I'm wondering. Please help me fellow Warriors

    Email marketing will work too.

    Build a list and then market your clickbank products through them.

    Or else, you can use solo ads.

    There are many different ways of promoting ClickBank products as an affiliate. It certainly isn't essential to write articles (though some kind of writing - either home-made or outsourced - is going to be required, somewhere along the line).

    I think it's fair to say that however you look at it and whatever you do, all the successful methods, from which people genuinely make steady money, or earn a living, or build a business, really boil down to three inescapable essentials.


    1. You have to choose wisely the products you promote (because if you get that wrong, it clearly won't make any difference what else you do). The guidelines here have proven helpful to many people: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post2161932

    2. You have to pre-sell effectively to well targeted traffic (which obviously means that you have to understand the difference between pre-selling and selling, and you have to have at least one source of well targeted traffic).

    3. You have to build lists yourself. This is probably the commonest failing among people who struggle ineffectively to promote ClickBank products. The point to appreciate is that what typically sells them is the strength of your recommendation, your credibility and the trust people have in you. Those things are actually even more important to the sales process than the product and its sales page. It isn't really possible to achieve the outcome you want without building relationships. You have to have a list of your own and an effective continuity-process for its subscribers: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post6123982


    These three things are simply not optional. The reality is that to get anywhere further than the occasional semi-random sale, as a ClickBank affiliate, you have to be both willing and able to do all three of them at least adequately. People who pretend otherwise are not making a living from selling ClickBank products, and are simply repeating inaccurate, out-of-date or ill-informed misinformation.

      You can also use videos to sell products if you don`t want to write. You can always outsource your article writing if it`s just that you, yourself don`t want to write.

      Alexia,

      After you find a product on click bank to sell do you create a separate website for that product ?

        Hi Andrew, not a separate website for each product, but a separate one for each niche. (So if it's the first product in that niche that I've ever promoted, and it's a new niche venture for me, then it'll start off with that being the only product sold, but only until I add another product to it, which won't take me long - and I'll select a niche knowing there'll always be more than one product to promote in it).

        One of the things I like about affiliate marketing is that unlike vendors, we can build up a real, asset-based business that can produce residual income without our income being dependent on the continued success and availability of any specific, individual product at all. We have complete flexibility.

        If a vendor suddenly changes a sales-page in such a way that I won't send my traffic there any more (e.g. by adding his opt-in or whatever), if a product's withdrawn, if there's a price-change I don't like, or a commission-change, or anything else adverse, I can just drop the product immediately and replace it with another one. With a little bit of inconvenience, obviously, but it doesn't do me any real harm, because all my articles and all my sites and all my lists are "according to niches", not "according to products" (I happen to be an article marketer but I wouldn't dream of mentioning a specific product in an article, anyway, because nobody wants to publish a "sales article" and I'd never get them syndicated).

        That way, however badly any individual vendor might screw something up, he can't interefere with the value of my business's assets (lists and sites) or my ability to earn a living from them.

          Alexia,

          Thanks for clarifying. I made an error by creating a site on a specific product rather than a niche, so my visitors are limited to only the people that are searching for that particular product, rather than many persons searching if I had done the site on a niche. At least I now know what I need to do to recover as a result of your respond.

          Thanks
          Andrew

          After read this it make me curious, I think in your standard of selecting CB products, the product you're willing to promote would be very few.

          So assume the product is match your standard, do you promote it all the time?

            Well ... these things are relative, aren't they? At the moment I'm promoting something between 25 and 30 different products, but would be able to find more, if I wanted to add another, different niche to my range.

            There are 15,000+ products on ClickBank altogether, so one needs only a very small proportion of those, to build a big business.

            I'm not quite sure what you mean by "all the time". I have 8 different, unrelated niches, each of which has its own main "money site" with which I build a list and promote a few products to my subscribers mostly by email but also a little bit on the websites themselves. Once I've "added a product" it stays on my site, and in my autoresponder series, unless and until something "goes wrong" with it, or it's withdrawn, or the vendor changes the sales page as a result of which I'm no longer willing to send my traffic to it (but these things are all very rare, fortunately!).

            It's true that my own product selection criteria do reject a lot of products, though.

              I got it! If the product still match your standard, it will stays on your site and autoresponder series.

              Before read your post, I thought that I need many products for promote. (But I don't want to do that now.)

              By the way, I'm sorry my words make you puzzled. It seems I should to practice my English more.:p

          Do you ever write reviews? Do you syndicate your reviews? The site that I'm working on now is a combination of beauty tips (syndicated articles) and product reviews that I wrote myself...based on a line of products that I personally use. I created this website with the intention of sharing my own "beauty secrets" with the world first, and hey...if it makes some money, great!

          But I really want to help others look the best that they can (it does tie with with my other sites/niches)...

            Yes, kind of. By which I mean that they really are reviews, rather than what many internet marketers consider reviews! They're not a thinly disguised sales pitch, in other words. Not many people are going to believe a "five star review" of a product for which you're openly stating (as you must) that you're an incentivized affiliate? I sometimes try to make them look good by writing pretty awful reviews of some of the other junk on the market, though. There are always some bad products, which you can say are bad?

            Originally Posted by koreancowboy View Post

            No; I don't think anyone who has a site/publication where I'd want to be syndicated is likely to be willing to syndicate something that actually names a product? I suppose it's not impossible, actually. But I've never tried.

          Hey Alexa,

          When first launching into the niche - how do you go about naming the domain or the site then?

            I've always registered niche-specific EMD's, myself. But I haven't started off a new niche site for over a year, now, and I believe that registering EMD's - after a recent Google change - may now not have quite the advantage it used to. (I'd still do the same thing, though, probably).

            There's quite a bit of misunderstanding about this subject, it seems to me. Some people believe that all EMD's lost all their advantage in the update, but that's certainly not right. All that really happened (as Google has confirmed) was that thin, poor-quality EMD's lost the articificial advantage they had simply by being EMD's. My own EMD's were all apparently helped out quite a bit by that update.

            So, I choose a niche-specific keyword for my domain-name. Something like keyword.com, or keywordworld.com, or keyworldreality.com, or whatever. Never a product-specific keyword, of course: one of the many great advantages of affiliate marketing is that we can build real, asset-based businesses which are not dependent for their income or longevity on the continued survival and performance of any specific, individual product.

              Thank you Alexa, your posts are always extremely useful.

              It seems like you are a walking - talking internet marketing genius :-)

              Trying not to veer off topic too much...but I suppose you look at clickbank products before venturing into a niche? So you know what you'll be selling before even setting up the site?

      But no opt-in, list and email marketing?

      I can't say this confidently without seeing it, but I suspect that many successful ClickBank affiliates might actually consider what you're calling "pre-selling" to be "selling", which is a bad approach. This is just a guess - I may be wrong. But if I'm right, it may be an additional reason why you've made no sales.

      Understood. I think this is why: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post6802482 <---- read it!

      Don't take this the wrong way, Tommy: I promise I'm not trying to be rude or dismissive to you, but sometimes it's better to read your responses carefully, following the links offered, and having a good think about them (and asking more questions if needed) rather than asking basically the same thing in many different threads and starting off more new threads at the same time, too. I do appreciate your impatience and frustration and am saying this only to try to be helpful, not unkind!

    I know you don't want to hear this but it sounds like you really need to learn the basics of how to market your products or any one else's clickbank product. I think I detect a sense of you wanting to by pass the proven methods for promoting any product and go straight for the gold. Fact is you're going to have get your hands dirty unless you have the money to pay someone else to do it for you.

    Every system that you may try to use is going to require you to do some thinking and then, "OMG! Work".

    I strongly recommend you go back and reread Alexa's post above, because she just laid it out for you.

        You now have a chance to market a product successfully. Write down your goals of how you want to go about it. And each time you accomplish that goal/step mark it off and go on to the next step.

    You gotta find some way to drive traffic to your site. There's PPC, forums, blogs, youtube, podcasting, JV's, and others. Also, you can't be lazy when marketing online. This alone will drive you out of business.

    You can always resort to PPC sending traffic directly to your affiliate page. You'll get the most targeted traffic possible. This might be a costly method, but done right (there is a learning curve involved) should provide your with hands free traffic and sales.

    There is nothing like a free lunch in Internet Marketing. If you don't want to devote your time and effort, you must sacrifice your money and the other way round. No matter what myths are there, you have to work to earn or to pay other people to work and earn for you, just like in the "real world". Only the work itself is different.

      Just of curiosity, is your autoblog not affected by Google Panda and Penguin update?

        All indexed fine. Some have down page on G, but still can climb up again.

          That's good to know, mate. I was under the impression that AutoBlogs are no longer working and are not worth of our time anymore.

          Thanks for sharing.

    I would suggest signing up with some of the top affiliates and getting their free ebooks. Then you can begin to see for yourself what is common between all of them and then come up with your own gameplan. Each affiliate is different and even though many would like to tell you different, there is no "Magic Bullet"

    If you want to promote Clickbank products I suggest you to create a site about a particular keyword and do seo...I am not a big fan of Clickbank products... if I were in you I would prefer to resell Wso products...

    Curation is good, but you still have to write some.
    Maybe, try creating a site on a topic you would love to write about.

    Not sure if its the best way, but a way is to create an opt in page with a free gift people in that niche would probably find useful, build a list by driving traffic (paid traffic if you can afford it), after they opt in send them to a sales page (or have your email confirmation link forward to a sales page), and then email them with your clickbank offers. Also a cool thing to do, when ever you send that list valuable content, make sure that content is on a page that also includes a banner to the clickbank product. Good discussion though, I love learning this stuff!

    First of all, you can outsource article writing. You can try with Fiverr and then go to Odesk or Scriptlance to hire someone full time.
    Many products on Clickbank provide a set of promotion tools to their affiliates. There are also pre-written articles which you can spin to create unique articles.

    Not wanting to write is a small obstacle and certainly not the biggest one you can face.

    Why not record an audio and have it transcribed online. Simple, easy, cheap and can build some authority...

    Hi Lots of good advice for you there whitealbum.

    I would say look at the traffic source fiirst and then find a product that matches their demographics such as male or female? How many kids? How much money do they earn> ect.. That way you know how to presell and in what language to use for your presell page.
    You wouldn't want to use hip language if your target prospects are older adults right?
    So my advice would be:

    1. find the traffic source first
    2. craft a free lead magnet offer(something to give away to capture name and email)
    3 Get your prospects to know, like and trust you by emailing them on a regular basis.
    4. Craft a presell landing page for 3 different related affiliate products you are an affiliate for.
    5. Give them your best recommendation.

    You will have more success in affiliate marketing if you buy they product yourself first and tell a story on how it helped you slove your problem. Also if you have past customers who have bought before, get them to do a testimonial. They're powerful.

    Hope that helps a little.

    This is self-promotional nonsense. Referring to your own future forum posts as "wonderful" is just laughable.

    Do you even realize that the questions you're supposedly answering here were asked last August?! Have you actually read the thread at all, or are all these conversations purely an opportunity for you to advertise yourself and your "forthcoming posts"?!

  • Over complicating the answers grrr!

    Setup a compelling squeeze page > Send traffic to that squeeze page > Get e-mails written by expert (decide on a specific theory/proven method within your niche, for example different Ab products have different theories on how to get 6 pac abs) > Find useful Articles that are based on the method you are targeting and send them to your list (If you post the article in the e-mail itself, you must reference the source! Don't steal!) > sometimes sprinkle in the affiliate link to the product you want your list to buy

    There, that works without having to write a single piece of content. And when you promote, if you still don't want to do much writing, use paid methods whereby you only need to write the minimum i.e. Small Ads.

    I just think it's more satisfying for some to do it all themselves and to get involved in a niche.

    Hi mate, I am also looking for an alternatives way to promote my affiliate product long time ago, and then I decide to settle the matter with tumblr. YES, TUMBLR!

    Tumblr can boost a targeted traffic because of its tag system from each post. Tumblr user is a people who appreciate good image and they love to share it with their follower, that is the point of using tumblr, discover a good image, then share it to your follower. Imagine yourself working on a specific niche that depend on an image, such as design and art niche, then tumblr will work the best for you.
    Here is some tips to gets quality traffic from tumblr.
    1. Tags your post properly, the more detailed the better
    2. Follow the big guys, so you can post a good picture to your fan
    3. Only post good image, and don't post your product excessively

    Two things which worked for me.

    Take a few PLR articles relevant to the issue, spin them and make a PDF including your affiliate links.

    Distribute to free PDF directories, ping and bookmark all submissions.

    Another thing is Video promotion over Youtube.

    No need to get Camtasia if you don't like.

    Go to Screencast-o-matic, a online base video tool which is free to use and make a review from your product up to 15 minutes, or take the same articles from above and make a Powerpoint presentation, like a mini course. Make a video and post it to Youtube as a "How to".

    If you also hate to do that, get 5 bucks and go to Fiverr. Me and many others make review videos for cheap.

    Whatever way you choose to go, be sure to build your list. Set up a funnel and send the traffic directly to your squeeze page and then to the CB products.

    You think the majority of us want to write articles or reviews.
    I am not even answering your question, what I want to say is something that you need to listen to.

    I hate alot of things, one is writing. I HATE to write, I'm not good at it, takes me hours to write a 500 word article and forever to proof it and make it right for publishing.

    I hate php but I learned to teach myself basic php so I wouldn't have to spend 5.00 bucks for every change I need. I hate dealing with customers.

    What I love is making money.

    If you want to skip processes and I never tell anyone this. You may need to get out of the kitchen. I hire out for 90 percent of my writing but I still do it so that I can when I have too. As a father I hate when my kid cried, as a husband I hated when my wife screamed and nag.

    All things are part of a equation. Im not griping but telling you, do a little writing and as time goes on it will get easier, you may still not like it but the power of the written word is very well needed in everything you do on the Internet.

    Where is Lexi or Tinkerbell when you need them.

      They say it about me, also (and often accurately). You made a very good post, anyway: once the thread's been bumped, it's been bumped - it doesn't mean that nobody else has anything valuable to say (and this time it wasn't bumped by a spammer whose post was removed, as they sometimes are ).
