    Clickbank is just a payment processing with a huge affiliate potential but is in no way your marketing strategy.

    The product you build has to be build for your own traffic sources first and ONLY after enough testing should it be released/can you expect affiliates.

    This counts for just about anything you do.

    If I where to promote a CPA offer for example and it doesn't convert I will move on and never look back.

    You as a vendor should make it happen for the affiliate.

    Think; market potential with your product, high conversion rates, high income per customer etc...

    Most people, (not saying that's you) think that creating a product and getting it on Clickbank or any other network for that matter will magically get affiliates and sales.

    Product creation is an on-going business that requires hard work and dedication for years to come.

    Tweaking your conversions, Making your product (even) better, Helping affiliates, Adding more value to one sale for both customers and affiliates.. think up-sells, down-sells etc

    Look at your competition and make your product ten-times better and stay a head.

    Master your own niche first and when you do that affiliates will notice and you will become unstoppable.

        A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

            vMartin is spot on!

            Look at Travis Sago... he made his magic of making up product a hit by helping affiliates and teaching them how to make money promoting his stuff.

            Before you get to that point though, you have to make your sales process at least decent...

            Check out my last post here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ng-mentor.html Post #15

            I would have linked directly to the post but don't know how. Anyone?

        Bottom line: If your product converts better than anything else in the niche, affiliates WILL find it. (This is assuming you have an in-demand product in a good niche, not some weird niche like "underwater basket weaving")

        People are under some weird assumption that the only way to get affiliates is to network, do product launches, email everyone promoting your competitors, etc.

        While those all work, the truth is that the only thing affliates care about are EPCs. Help your affiliates make more money than anyone else can and they'll help you do the same.

        So to keep it simple: the absolute best way to find affiliates is to have the best-converting offer in the niche. That's it, that's all.

          Well I am convinced I have to do some marketing for myself because right now it is just sitting out there like an island has no stats so I have to break the ice with some exposure obtain conversion so I can get some stats.

        Lol. So you're only offering 25% commission, you appear to have no affiliate tools or resources, and no way to contact you either on your sales page or your marketplace listing. Not only have these 3 simple facts guaranteed that no serious affiliates promote you even if you had a great sales page, but the simple fact is that you don't; it's non-specific, no social proof, no credibility, no real sense of who you are, or why anyone would give you $97/month for your advice, etc, etc, etc.

        But let's forget about all that right now because first things first: You have a financial services product that you say will "guarantee" your clients make money, yet you don't have any of the necessary FTC earnings and typical results disclaimers on your sales page... or anywhere on your site at all.

        You need to get the legal stuff handled immediately. If someone buys your product and does not receive the advertised results, you can be held liable for civil damages and possible criminal charges (unlikely, but possible). Also, this is another reason for affiliates not to promote you.

        Anyone in futures trading should know how important the legalese is to financial services products. Sorry to say, but you need to head back to the drawing board.

          For that reason alone, many super-affiliates will not promote you. You need to get the legal stuff handled immediately.

          Great -I need to add that legal disclaimer on there.

            I have been with ClickBank for 14 years, all kinds of products. My direct sales have always been vastly more than all my affiliates combined (and I pay 50% now, and have paid 75% on some products). You've got to do your own marketing.

            I don't believe it's true "affiliates will find you if you're good". They may, but they don't always. There are tons of really good vendors, sometimes selling lots directly or through 1 or 2 affiliates, who fly under affiliate's radar because they never get a critical mass of gravity etc.

            To be honest, that doesn't always matter - your goal is to make sales, and there's lots of ways to do that - it doesn't have to be from affiliate traffic.

            Other things you want to do:

            1. Promote your site to drive sales

            2. Always work on improving your conversion rate, presentation, etc.

            3. Protect your product against Thank You Page / Download theft, as much as you reasonably can without annoying legit customers. Yes hardcore pirates never buy, but there are plenty of people who will pirate if it's easy to pirate, but will buy if otherwise.

            4. Email each new customer after every sale to (1) say thank you, (2) give them your contact details again, (3) remind them what they've bought, (4) remind them you're a real person, (5) remind them how the charge will show on their billing statement, and (6) start to build a relationship, eventually allowing you to sell other products to them.

            (1) to (5) will help reduce charge-backs and refunds, sometimes drastically so.

            (6) will add to your bottom line

            5. Did I say, promote your site to drive sales....

              This is really useful info.

              Can I ask what might be a daft question though?

              When you have your own product on CB and you drive your own traffic to it (as oppose to affiliates sending traffic to it), should you just send the traffic to the main link e.g. domain.com or to the CB Hop 0 link? e.g. domain.com?hop=0, or to your own CD ID e.g. domain.com?hop=myID or does it not make any difference?

              I want to make sure I am getting the sales and increasing the gravity of course.

                domain.com?hop=0 is not a valid format

                Just send traffic to domain.com

                However this will not increase your gravity as it is not an affiliate link.
                You would need to get another ClickBank account and use that in the affiliate part of the hoplink.

                  I use both approaches.

                  The first (going direct to yourdomain.com) is better for seo purposes.

                  The second (having a second affiliate account and hopping to your main account) is better for tracking, especially if you use a tid on the hop links.

                  The extra gravity from the second is a maximum of 1, so shouldn't really be much of a consideration.

                  Unless you were to open lots of different affiliate accounts (which would create a whole set of additional problems, not least in collecting the money due to onerous Cdr, account minimum pay out thresholds, and potential dormant account fees), gravity would not really be a significant consideration between the 2 approaches.

                      I've never been hugely successful at getting an army of affiliates. In any case, remember that gravity is a reflection of the number of different affiliates who have made sales, not total sales.

                      A few good affiliates is all you need, especially if you market yourself.

                      Remember also that you are the number 1 expert in the world on your own product, and the number 1 most motivated person in the world to sell your product. So you are probably doing something wrong, or simply being lazy and leaving money on the table, if you are not the number 1 best sales person of your product too!

                        It seems to me that the whole gravity issue is where a product can fail, as without gravity...you won't get gravity?

                        I guess I just have to make sure the product is good enough! :-)
                        Given that so many affiliates will search for high gravity products in the mistaken belief that they are big sellers it makes sense for you to maximize the gravity of your product if you want lots of affiliates.

                        It might be argued though that your best affiliates will be those who ignore gravity and focus on other factors in particular the ability of the sales page to convert.

          But let's forget about all that right now because first things first: You have a financial services product that you say will "guarantee" your clients make money, yet you don't have any of the necessary FTC earnings and typical results disclaimers on your sales page... or anywhere on your site at all.

          You need to get the legal stuff handled immediately. If someone buys your product and does not receive the advertised results, you can be held liable for civil damages and possible criminal charges (unlikely, but possible). Also, this is another reason for affiliates not to promote you.

          Anyone in futures trading should know how important the legalese is to financial services products. Sorry to say, but you need to head back to the drawing board.
          No i'm taking your criticism in perspective need to hear this from a savvy affiliates perspective. Personally I don't want to be on facebook or twitter I kind of want it to go under the radar I don't want to many people knowing about this or doing this. Now things I can do is create the contacts page and affiliates page and i'm addressing the Legal aspects now -I am a trader not a marketer I was referred to this site by Peter Brennan known as Quality Copywriter on here who I have worked with and done some content for me. But I am definitely taking in your feedback critique.

    create a postscript on the sales letter. Try and get a better formatted video. I didn't read through the copy honestly but from taking a quick look that's what I noticed. Then start sending traffic and test out conversions... you have to know your metrics before you can attract joint venture partners

      What exactly is a postscript and I paid My Sales Video to create that video for me no sense in wasting $600. Unless you know ways in how I can create a professional sales video with little or no cost or for free.

    Yeah you have to do pretty much 99% of the work and put it into the affiliates hands.

    Done this many times on Clickbank and on other platforms...a few suggestions:

    1. Make sure you have a sales funnel that involves traffic generation, lead generation (lead capture in exchange for an incentive) and a "drip" traffic system that continually interacts with your market. Even the best converting sales pages will bring in 3-4 times more customers when you market to "warm" list over "cold" (first time) visitors

    2. Test your conversion - you may have a 6-figure product, but you may have a 2-figure sales page in which case it doesn't matter does it :-) So, test your page in blocks of 300-500 visitors from different sources (paid traffic, affiliate traffic, freebie traffic) to get a sense for your conversion. If you see 1% or better then you can begin to expand your traffic rapidly while you continue to test to get even higher conversions, if you get below 1% (to start with), then you need to continue your ramp-up phase to get better conversions. I have seen ebook product creators that have gone out and blown it completely by spending a fortune on paid traffic, blew their credibility with a bunch of high-end affiliates or busted their brains out getting free traffic when their sales page converted at .1% - all that gets for you is to the bottom quicker.

    3. Once you have your sales funnel and sales page converting to a level that makes sense, you can now begin to turn on the taps and throw more traffic, keeping a close eye on conversions to pick the winning sources.

    Hope that helps,

    Jeff

    You have to drive traffic to your offer and begin testing how well your sales page converts.

    If it converts well, affiliates will take notice and begin promoting your product for you.

    I am a Clickbank product owner and for the whole five and a half years since starting I have been my own top affiliate.
    I had no idea that would be the case. I expected affiliates to take over all the sales. I have about 120 and they do send good traffic. But I am number one. I am so glad that I marketed my product directly as well as offering it to affiliates.

      Hi Ken

      So do you send your traffic directly to the domain? No hop?

      And how do you get on with gravity?

        Hi Trevor

        I use hops so that I can track things.

        My product's gravity has always been low 1 - 7. It is a mystery to me. But I hardly have any refunds. I can't remember the last one.

          OK, so maybe I shouldn't over concern myself with gravity then. :-) Thanks for the help.

    Yep, you'll need to buy traffic. I'd start with at least 1000 clicks to see where your conversions are at.

    And to be honest, your sales page needs some serious work. Did you hire a proven copywriter to do this? Same goes for the video, did a copywriter make the script?

    If you skimped on the copy I think you're about to realize why we always say cheap copy will cost you a hellofa lot more than doing it right the first time.

      Yes I got a copywriter to do the script -Peter Bernnan his also known as Quality Copywriter on here do you think the video sucks I may need to get a new video. Paid $600 bucks for it though.

        I think I would make sure the copy and the video sucks via testing before blindly accepting someone's claim that it does.

    I think you will find it a tough sell, $97 a month straight off the bat. Most marketing now has a lead capture page, videos showing what the product is and how it works and multiple email follow ups as well as a freebie, which is another sales process designed as an ebook or free video after giving you their email.

    What market are you targeting? Beginning Futures traders or existing futures traders? What bonuses are you offering? What are the differences between your system and others? Have you designed the system yourself? If so, where are your own successes and failures that prove your system works? What about others who have tried your system? What does the customer get every month to justify the $97 monthly fee? What do the graphics and video showing graphs actually show and what does that benefit the customer, because its meaningless without explanation. You have to seriously over deliver to get people's money these days.

    You definitely need at the bottom of the page an affiliates page link, in there is your sign up link to Clickbank. Also, you will need many different types of banners, proven emails and follow up emails, subject lines, articles they can rewrite, forum signatures, keywords, example tweets and facebook posts, white label videos, example ppc ads, even lead capture pages.

    You also need to include contact link, terms, earnings disclaimers, testimonials, privacy policy, etc.

    If your system works, then tell people how ... being excited about giving them this information will get them excited about being part of your exclusive mastermind class. Telling them that your system is interactive and you offer regular webinars, calls and roundtables to share the latest information - and then record those and offer them as added content will increase chances of a sale.

    Currently the benefits aspect of your page is lacking, you need to seriously beef that up before going live with your product. Emphasis on OVER DELIVERY will make your product stand out against others. People want to know what they are getting, how they are going to get it, if its simple to follow and that they will be successful.

    If you are an expert in the field of futures trading, you would already have gathered the necessary contacts to help you launch your product. You should give them free access to your product and then ask them to review it in their newsletters ... and let them generate commissions from those reviews. You can then link to those reviews from your site and allow people to understand that your product is one of the best.

    Do lead capture page with short teaser video, get them to give you their email, give them a lot of great information in the free video as well as the lead in to sales process. Instead of going straight out for $97, offer $1 for 7 days access rebilled at $97 a month. Tell them that the first 7 days is an opportunity for them to test your system and give you feedback (use the feedback to improve your product and as testimonials). If they don't buy after that first video, then you have your autoresponder series which will give you more opportunities to close. Each autoresponder would have their own video detailing more benefits as well as continuing the sales process. If they still don't buy, give them a regular newsletter every few days with a little bit of news and info on the stock market as well as promoting your product and other affiliate products because if they don't buy your product ... maybe they will buy something later down the track.

    There are lots of ways you can generate leads and sales ... even using part of your product to create a retail product that you give away free in order to get them into a sales funnel. Ultimately you want your customers to be joining you for 3 day weekend retreats at $2,500 a head that offer one-to-one coaching at $10,000 a month.

    Hope this helps...

      Yes working on the affiliates page contacts and privacy now this product is easily worth $1295 but clickbank is short changing me because its a new product and there is a $100 limit so to give it away for a trial for $1 is slitting my throat the information is so powerful so in the mean time I have to just look at the drawing board and figure out ways how to BEEF this sales page up i'm not a expert in sales pages i'm a trader but I have to go to the drawing board and figure out ways how to put the sales page on Deer Antler spray or steriods.

    For the video script or the whole video? And what about the main letter? Was that part of the deal? Bottom line is it has no credibility.

    I think I would make sure the copy and the video sucks via testing before blindly accepting someone's claim that it does.
    I'm not just "someone" making a claim. That is my expert opinion being I've made my clients in the mid EIGHT figures as a copywriter. I specialize in I.M. but this market is very similar... it's all about "How to get money" and the triggers that cause action are virtually the same.

    But sure, test it... that is always a wise thing to do.

      1. Start building a list off your sales page with a Popup or Exit pop offering something of value in exchange for their email and make sure to have at least 12 followups in place to send them back to your sales page.

      When you do get affiliates to promote your offer they will be building you a list/asset for FREE on auto-pilot which could be worth far more than product.

      2. Create Multiple Sales Page Variations to start testing which converts the best.

      3. Setup conversion tracking you can use prosper202 for this for free so you can see which landing/sales pages are converting the best.

      4. Send a massive amount of targeted visitors to your offer

      5. Get your sales page to convert at min 1% if you can do that your golden. Test sales pages, squeeze pages/popups, price points and upsells.

      6. Track and gather data - You need a good amount of data from multiple traffic sources to make "real decisions" on which pages are going to be the winners. 1000+ quality visitors min I would say.

      7. You can control your funnel since you are the product owner and make more than any affiliate. (but if I am looking at CB to promote a product I would like 50-75% commission and prefer recurring products.

    As some marketers mentioned above, it is best to focus on making your product convert to sales and keep refunds low. The most successful Clickbank product owners focused on building their business by themselves, then once they got the product converting, affiliates began to come.

    If you have something successful, others will want to be a part of it and want a piece of it. That is just how it is online and offline.
