Clickbank: Earning with Digital Products

If you are looking to start a business online Clickbank is one of the best places to get started as an affiliate marketer.

When I started online Clickbank was the first place I was able to make my first sale.

I picked a niche, found a product on Clickbank to promote as an affiliate, and built a list in that niche,

I ended up selling two products within my first month for a profit of $106.18.

It felt good earning my first bit of money online from my email marketing efforts.

There was nothing fancy about the work leading up to the end result, but it was all worth it when I got my first sale online.

I didn’t try to reinvent the wheel with made up strategies.

I just followed the steps my mentor laid out for me and did each step as best as I could until completion.

These basic steps still work today and I wanted to discuss them with you in further detail.

3 Steps to Clickbank Success

1) Identify a Niche

Selecting a niche is one of the first things that should be done when looking to make money online.

Once that niche is selected you want to do market research to learn more about the customer base and what their motivation is for buying products.

Figure out the words your target audience uses most often and learn about their pain points.

Research if the niche profitable or not.

If there is lots of competition then the niche is most likely profitable.

Competition isn’t always a bad thing.

Sometimes you can pick a niche that is a hot market, but people just aren’t buying.

This probably isn’t a niche you would want to spend your time on.

Your goal in the end is to provide information people are willing to pay for.

In doing your research if you find a market that is desperate to buy you are in business and should start building a sales funnel to promote offers to your list.

2) Select an Offer

Once you’ve completed your market research you want to find quality offers to promote.

If you want to make an impression on the buyer make sure you are looking out for their best interest and not just pushing any and every offer their way.

When selecting offers take time visiting their sales page and learning about the product.

Some affiliates even purchase and use the product first before promoting.

This is a great way to be excited about what you are offering if you’ve actually used the product and have had success.

Your list will be more prone to buy if they trust and believe in you and know it’s something you actually purchased.

Once you’ve found an offer you are comfortable promoting you want to get your marketing in order to have people to promote too if you don’t already have a list.

3) Build a List

There are many autoresponder services out there for you to choose.

The two most popular in my opinion are, Getresponse and Aweber.

I personally use Getresponse.

It’s where I started and have learned to use so my comfort level lies there.

You will need to create a squeeze page and generate traffic to that squeeze page to get people to opt-in to your list.

These steps may sound difficult, but once you begin the process you come to realize it’s not as difficult as you would think.

Perform each step as best as you can…

It doesn’t have to be perfect, but each one is necessary.

Focus on building a relationship with your list through a series of emails only promoting an offer about once a week.

You are now light years ahead of where I was before I found a mentor.

There is so much information online about getting started that makes it so difficult to actually get started.

If you follow these three simple steps then I can assure you that you are on your way to making your first sale online.

Stick to it and don’t get discouraged.

Once your funnel is set up it’s about making the right tweaks to get sales.

Best Wishes!
