    2 Ways to Think About Clickbank: Lottos & Stocks


    Often I see people talk trash about Clickbank products & the marketplace. CB is shit. Products are shit. Salespage shit. Everythings a fat frickn brown turd. Noobs are ever so quick to scrutinize CB but rarely redirect that scrutiny towards themselves. I've spoken to noobs over the years both here and on whitehatworld (WF). I'm no grandmaster CB jedi. I've just done enough & made enough to know what I'm going to say in this thread is true.

    At least 95+% of noobs play Clickbank like the lotto. You create an account, you search the marketplace, you start you feel like you're in....


    The Alaskan Wilderness

    Beautiful no doubt. But also huge, cold, ruthless, and wildy overwhelming. When you're new you're the freeman who just moved to "live off the grid". You're lost. You need food. You need maps and GPS tracking for everything. This is the equivalent of using CBs research tools to navigate your way through a jungle of products. And they can be helpful early on. Get lost in Alaska, global positioning can get you back to homebase. Yet inevitably, if you don't learn how to survive on your own, if your GPS breaks, if your tent burns down, if you don't have a backup tent with heat.... you're gonna freeze, starve, or get eaten by a bear.

    Even still, people go to Alaska every year knowing nothing about survival. They gamble their lives like the lotto. And they wind up like this genius.....

    Don't be him. Inspiring movie but...


    Become The "Inside Trader"

    Let me explain the symbolic difference between people who play the lotto and people who trade. Cause this is where most noobs seem to go wrong. Which is the fact that many of you use this singular, 1 dimensional approach. I've done it myself. It's crude, it's unrefined, it goes something like this:

    1) Find 1 product.
    2) Find 1 primary keyword.
    3) Find 1 way to promote.
    4) Fail, blame 1 thing (CB)


    Now a trader is like the guy who's been living in Alaska for 20 years. He has a refined methodology. He batches all his work. He doesn't set up 1 trap now to go find 1 log later then eat 1 meal under 1 fire. He thinks vividly about the future. And here's the thing, you don't need to do something for 20 years to refine it before you actually do it (if that makes sense). In my case, I knew how serious a "problem" the CB marketplace was. I knew if I allowed myself to be daunted and overwhelmed I likely wouldn't survive or make any $$$.

    From day 1 I realized there was no real point of picking a product or keyword. I saw it more as an information war. My goal was to gather intelligence and organize it in a grueling, meticulous way that no sane person would.


    Here's How The Process Went

    [​IMG]



    1) Sorted products between a gravity of 10-150 - This the only CB filter I used. All I wanted was a huge list of all the lower gravity products, but nothing insanely low.

    2) I started the tedious task of copying & pasting 2,500 products into 1 MS Word document. Why? Because even when I set to display 50 results per page, I hated the fact that I lacked a "birds eye view" over the marketplace. I needed a way to quickly scan through hundreds of products w/out clicking anything. This 1 part took more than 3 hours.

    3) I saved 1000 products per document. So 1000, 1000, 500 (3 separate docs). I noticed after 1000 word was having loading problems. Your PC may be different so just copy as much as word can handle.

    4) Now that I had "quick scroll" manually enabled, manual selection began. I started picking any product that looked like it had the slightest bit of potential. Then I'd copy it into excel. I should note like 80% of the products I picked had VSLs (video sales letters) or a combo of VSL + salespage.

    5) I wound up picking only 64 out of 2,500 products. Which is roughly 1/40 products. I didn't need hundreds of products I just wanted what stuck out to me, my personality, and what I believed had potential. I don't remember how many hours this took. I just know I worked on it a couple hours / day for like 2-3 days.

    6) After this I started to create my "Cherry Seedlist". I had 64 products all catered to my taste (like Netflix does) with 64 primary keywords. Now I opened up Googles Keyword Planner. Then researched EVERY SINGLE NICHE. For every niche & primary keyword I wrote down between 3-50 keywords. That's just how it is. Some niches you won't find many decent keywords other niches you'll find dozens. This entire process took me a full day to complete. I spent like 9-10 hours just finding relevant keywords and C&P the phrase + SM (searches / month) into excel. Most were between 3-6 words long.

    7) NOW, I had something to work with. I wound up with more than 850 keywords, every one cherry picked.

    8) I then took this list and fluffed it out with Scrapebox. It's important to mention I didn't do a full scrape. I did maybe 1/4 - 1/2 a full scrape. I monitored scrapebox and the minute I saw it pulling irrelevant keywords like, "how to lose weight in 2 weeks missouri" I turned it off. Then I saved this list separate from my main list. The reason I did this was just thinking about the future.... "if I ever need to beef up my cherry list I'll use the partial scrape for reference".

    #9 - Growing The Breadth, Not The Depth of your Master List


    At this point, you'll have a huge resource most noobs AND amateurs don't.

    A beautifully hand picked & organized spreadsheet. A farm of data for your "investments". And you'll never have to do keyword research again if you don't want. The depth of the list is just the volume of keywords you have. For me I started around 850 and very SLOWLY worked up. I didn't care much about the depth. But what I did over time helped A LOT. I added to the breadth of the list. By focusing more on columns than rows.

    Example 1: One thing I did was pay someone to build a simple YT bot. It runs through the list then reports all VIDEO keywords ranking in the top 5 of Google. It pulls the titles from those videos, descriptions, views, etc. Then exports into an excel spreadsheet. So I can copy & aggregate all the top ranking YT videos into my master list. Then I can see all these keywords, the SM, how many views, likes, I can quickly pull out high ranking / low competition keywords I wanna outrank.

    Example 2: I started to list parasites, TLDs and gTLDs. If I saw lots of FB pages in a niche I made a FB column. If I noticed tumblr I'd add that. If I noticed a low competition .com, .org, etc I added that row to the sheet.

    This may seem like overkill but the data is power and power is money. The data doesn't just tell you what to do, it tells you what not to do, why not to do it, it allows you to focus on nothing but your campaigns. And yes, it's a lot of work. But how often do you do research just to SEE things that you never document or record?

    If you wanna stop playing CB like the lotto and really wanna raise your odds, data is your best friend. This type of data seems to compensate for everything. If your copy is mediocre, your ranking abilities, it's not gonna make or break you. Cause you built a foundation that is both unrockable and ripe for growth.

    Cheers,

    -BB

    Excellent post BB!

    Whenever I get contacted by newbies for help on how to get started with CB, I always check that they have the right perception of what making money online entails. This is no set-and-forget system. It involves a lot of hard work, especially at the start, and many failed projects. When I first got started in IM, I lost money and countless weeks working on my first projects were "wasted" as my initial projects did not turn out profitable. But I took every failure as a learning opportunity and kept going.

    Clickbank WAS and STILL IS a goldmine. People who say otherwise obviously did not give it a proper go, and expected it to be a push button scheme. Those who put in the work, the long nights bashing away on the keyboard, those who put failures behind them and just keep going...those people are the ones milking this 3,000,000,000+ dollar cow*.

    well i would definitely fit in that category,

    I am just getting started and this is very helpful, Ive been very successful offline in the past but also been screwed over by companies that promise more than they can deliver.
    If i were to fulltime promote, is it realistic to from scratch generate 2500-3500 in the first 30 days, I am willing to do the work and learn what is necessary, just like to hear your thoughts?

    Also what is the differences aside from price, for the varying ways to promote blog vs YT vs PPC vs Review Site

    Nobody is going to spoon-feed you and you won't get any useful help asking such a vague question.

    This forum is a goldmine - read, read, read. Then once you start implementing a strategy and specific questions crop up, ask. But first you need to put in the effort.

    IM is NOT easy nor is it a quick or lazy way of getting rich. If you are not ready to put in the time, it is not for you.
