      To get subscribers to buy a product, I get personal with them. Relationships get sales. That is my best advice and I hope you take that saying seriously, because it really works.

      I wish you the best of luck on your journey to achieving your goals!

      Thank you very much

    It doesn't make much difference where you host a WordPress blog, I think (I'd stay well away from "GoDaddy" and "1and1", though, myself). Hostgator's popular and good (I've been using it for nearly 5 years and like it very much. Some people here who promote their own hosting in their signature-files like to try to denigrate the ever-popular Hostgator, so you might want to watch out for them, if others start replying on that subject ).

    "Not at all" is the answer to this one, I think. "Pushing" loses much more than it gains. Start with subscribers who are already looking. Don't persuade: that's not an affiliate's job.

    This thread should help: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post7110523

    And here are four more threads about "list-building" which may help, too (they address a few of your questions, above) ...
    What are the essential things to know about list building?
    Lists: How Long to Presell - Averages
    Where to get reports to give away on opt in page?
    Autoresponders vs. Broadcasts

    Good luck!

      Bad idea.

      What you said about choosing a niche that interests you is true, that will help. However don't just choose one of the big ones without research. The niches listed there are extremely saturated and have lots of competition. Choose a niche with smaller competition or f you are going to choose one of them, choose a small sub niche.

    1. Choosing A niche :

    Once quick way to find a profitable niche is through magazines. You can go to a local store and have a browse -- or go to magazines.com and look there.

    Each magazine you see is a niche (A broad niche) but still all profitable niches.

    People pay big money to advertise their magazines -- and if there was no profit to be made, they would not spend the money in the first place promoting them.

    Now once you find a magazine you want to drill down and get as specific as you possible can within your niche.

    Here is an exmaple:

    Niche (Magazie): Men's Health
    Sub Niche: How To Get Abs
    Super Niche: How To Get Abs For Men Over 40

    How To Get Abs For Men Over 40 is the niche you want to target! By drilling down you eliminate a lot of your competition -- while aslo making your future business more profitable by talking to a select group of people on a specific subject.
    2. How To Build A Squeeze Page


    Your squeeze page only has one purpose -- and that is to collect your visitors email address.

    To do this you want to make sure you have a few key concepts in place
    • Have a benefit driven headline that will attract your customers
    • Give away a free gift (something of high value) this can be a short e report or video
    • Give around 3 bullets points highlighting the main points of your gift
    • Have a strong call to action to your sign up form -- and also make sure is it above the fold


    3. How to push your subscribers to buy the product you promote


    After you obtain a subscriber you want to provide them with massive value and not sell them products all the time.

    The best way I have found to sell products is to simply suggesting products they may like.

    You can do this by having every follow up message you send, have a short message in the PS at the bottom of your messages stating something like, "If you enjoyed this content then you may find this product useful."

    They key though is to make sure you are delivering massive value to your prospects each time.

    Remember no one likes to be sold too -- but everyone likes to buy

    When you will choose your niche, try to find something you know and you like because you will have to write many articles and email messages about this topic to make sales.

    If you will promote things you ignore and you dislike, you won't be able to deal with the fierce competition because you will become tired at a certain point. You have to keep promoting your business, without stopping. The continuation is harder than the beginning.

      How to choose a niche?

      Everyone knows that best working niches are:
      • make mone
      • health and fitness
      • dating

      This niches works best for me.

      How to build a squeeze page?

      Make it simple and straight. Chose wisely your title, description, headline. Don't sell anything on your page, just offer valuable information and some bonus for your subscribers in order to opt in.

      When it comes to valuable content, I always buy product from clickbank I want to test and sell. In that case you can give 100% of it.

      How to push your subscribers to buy the product you promote

      In your follow up sequence try to sell your product, give valuable information til you get straight to the point...
      Give solution to their problem and you will have success...

      I agree 100% that when choosing a niche it is almost a must to find something that you are interested, beacuse as clever said -- it takes writing a lot of writing, video creating, and marketing to grow your business.

      As far as the continuation harder then the beginning -- I find that it is the complete opposite. The beginning when you have no list, no online presence, and no website made is what causes you to have to wait until you see an income.

      If however you continue blogging, building your fan page, growing you email list -- you presence content gets shown more on the internet results in more traffic, prospects, sales.

      From then on you just need to leverage your work and eventually you can be making money working a lot less then when you started out.

    Check out CB Engine. Nice site for CB products. You can quickly search for products by popularity, by gravity, by payout, and so on.

    Hope this helps. Cheers

    If you want to start making sustainable and consistent money with Clickbank, you need to start a niche blog as well as start building a list. When you have a list, the goal isn't to push products on subscribers but rather build a relationship and provide value. If you do this, they will buy from you.

    When it comes to finding a niche, I had the same problem as you. I literally didn't think I had the expertise or passion to start a site about something outside of the "make money online" niche. However, I was wrong. The first site I build was in a niche related to what I got my degree in ("learn Spanish" niche).

    After that, I still wasn't ready to go into the "make money online" niche and found that I just had to try various niche markets out just to see if I liked them or not. I basically got into niches by finding products that I personally liked and knew were part of a really profitable niche. I found that I liked some niches and disliked others -- trial and error, pretty much.

    Good luck,
    Joey

  • just promote each product, find about 10 keywords for each product with a gravity of 30+ (meaning the product is making at least the equivalent of 1 sale a day). Then promote those 10 keywords.

    Repeat.

    Small traffic adds up, do them all and you'll begin to make sales.

    Just stay away from the keywords everyone else is using.

    Choose a niche that has a hungry market but little competition. This can be hard, but if you do your research correctly you will find one. You could make a Wordpress blog, get a squeeze page template and for hosting you can't go wrong with HostGator. Drive traffic using solo ads and through social media marketing.

    Choose a niche that:

    You are passionate about (will help you stay motivated in bad times)

    Has hungry buyers

    How to build a squeeze page?

    There are many free easy to edit squeeze page templates available, here is one that I use

    Free Squeeze Page Template | Free Squeeze Page Templates | Free Video Squeeze Page Templates | Only At FreeSqueezePageTemplate.net

    If you are on a budget but still want a nice host, go for hawkhost ( I use them)

    How to push your subscribers to buy the product you promote?

    • Give them something free.
    • Build relationship, by sharing stories etc.
    • Survey them about their need (using survey monkey)
    • Promote the product that you think will be in their best interest, also give them some bonus if they decide to buy from your link.

    I’m wondering how to start with CB too. I have a few WP blogs in several niches. Each site has a few pages of unique content. I also have Adsense on some of the sites. After taking a look in CB I see that these niches have related CB products available that I could attempt to sell.

    I don’t want to wait around for organic traffic. Is the idea to pay for relevant traffic but ensure the traffic cost less than the potential sales? If so what is the best choice to pay for traffic? Can I use Adwords or is there an alternative method? I remember using Adwords once to promote a blog and they halted the campaign because there was too many links to affiliate products. Also I believe Adwords does not like squeeze pages. What’s the solution?

    So my questions is…I have sites/niches with related CB products what’s the next best step? Traffic campaign? How and via who?

    Thanks!

    We you have a few good questions there!

    -How to choose a niche
    Choose a niche that is a proven money maker. More importantly choose a niche that you are passionate about.

    -How to build a squeeze page (what's the best hosting for wordpress)
    Your best bet would be to get some plugin or software that does this for you. Something like Authority pro, Optimize press, or Salespress pro.

    -How to push your subscribers to buy the product you promote.
    Don't push them to do anything! Give them value, build a relationship and only promote offers that will genuinely help your subscribers! If the product is something you wouldn't use then don't promote it!

    the best is to start promoting products in the MMO niche and then, you can start writing reviews and promoting them. You could also use some SEo which would rank your reviews on top of google
