Hi all, I've spent the last few days reading around the affiliate section of the site, in particular the Clickbank section. I'm looking to get started as an affiliate, and who knows, maybe one day as a vendor. I am hoping someone can just give me some confirmation that I'm heading in the right direction! So once you've settled on your product, there are several options for you.... 1) Build a blog on your niche, offer something for free to get users to submit their emails, then market a paid product to the list. 2) Build a blog on your niche and at the end of the posts post your hoplink, bypassing the need for a list. 3) Submit Youtube videos, and link in the description to either your blog or hoplink. 4) Submit articles to the article directories (eg Ezine) with a link to your blog or hoplinkat the bottom. 5) Use social media to get traffic to your blog or hoplink. My understanding is that for options 1) and 2) you can increase traffic with SEO or perhaps PPC. I will definitely be creating a blog, but I was unsure if building a list is the way to gofor a newbie, or whether to include the hoplink at the bottom of good posts. Is there a 'bible' for selling through Clickbank that anyone could recommend in the downloads section. I had a look but didn't find anything with good reviews (mostly WSO rubbish) or very outdated. Any recommendations would be awesome!
