    It's reckoned that ClickBank have over 2 million affiliates but only 100,000 are active. And of those only a minority are successful. And so by the law of averages I am sure that you as a vendor have a range of affiliates - a few making many sales but the remainder all struggling.

    How to Make Money with ClickBank - Step by Step

    The first step is creating your CB account.

    If you don't have an account you have to join clickbank: Register here as affiliate!

    When you hit marketplace you can start to browse by category.
    [​IMG]

    At this stage I suggest you choose a category of your interest or something you want to learn more about.

    [​IMG]

    Now, before browsing for products in a specific category there is something you must know.

    [​IMG]


    • Clickbank is the major retailer of digital products in the world and they do their best to get rid of low quality products, nevertheless there is a lot of useless products. So, you have to make sure to pick products that are worth promoting.
    • This particular product pays $44.68 per sale on average. Now, it's important to note that the amount you earn per sale may not match that number exactly due to upsells, sales tax, chargebacks, etc. However, this will give you an idea of what you can earn
    • Gravity is kind of an obscure factor but it gives you an idea about how many people/affiliates are making money online by selling that product. The data is compiled based on the last 8 weeks and each affiliate that makes sales during this period can add the maximum of 1 point and the minimum of 0.1 to the gravity of a product. So, by using a roughly approximation we can assume that if the gravity of a product is 40, it can indicate that there are about 80 affiliates making money from that product. If you want to know how to make fast money with clickbank, don't choose products which the gravity is very high.
    • I would suggest anything from 6 up to 50. Why? Because the competition is a little lower, but there are still plenty of people making money by selling that product.
    • Check out the Stats information at the bottom of the result. This provides more details about what you can earn.
    • Notice the Initial $/sale stat is much lower than the average $/sale. This particular vendor offers several products, which is why the initial sale stat and average sale prices differ.
    • Average %sale means the average commission for this product is 45% per sale.
    • The Avg Rebill Total of $8.09, indicates this is a recurring billing product and that's the average amount the affiliate earns. So not only can you earn for one sale, but you will also earn for any customer re-bills. This is how your income can really add up over time.

    Obtaining Your Affiliate Link (Hoplink)

    Once you decide on a product you want to promote, click the green Promote button alongside the listing. You will be presented with this form.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    In the Account Nickname box, enter the ClickBank ID you created when you setup your ClickBank account, and add a Tracking ID if you want to keep track of where the sale is coming from.

    EPC

    [​IMG]

    EPC stands for earnings per click. If you want to really understand how to make money with clickbank you have to learn to analyze EPC.

    You built your website, are driving traffic to it, people are clicking through your affiliate link but no one is buying! It's terrible. EPC is that important! A good merchant will show the EPC flat out! It is an average but it gives you a great sense of how well that product converts. But that is not all, you also want a low refund rate, because if a visitor bought a product using your link and then ask for a refund, this not only affects the merchant but you also would lose the commission.

    If the product is good, the refund rate MUST be lower than 15%.

    Best Ways to Promote ClickBank

    Youtube
    1. Do a Google search for the product name. Make sure there's already a YouTube video on page 1 and it has less than 20,000 views. If it does, you can easily outrank them with basic SEO
    2. Optional: Email the product creator and ask for a review copy. Tell them you're an experienced experienced marketer and you'll be driving traffic to a review video with SEO. 60% of the time, they'll hook you up.
    3. If you get the review copy, great. If not, you can do this anyways using the sales page as content for your review. Or, you can move on to another product.
    4. Create a screen capture video with Camtasia or Camstudio (free version) reviewing the product. If you got a review copy, do an "inside look" of the product. Make sure to have a call to action to click on the link below the video.
    5. Save the video as productname.mp4. This actually helps with rankings
    6. Upload to YouTube, include product name in title, description and tags. Add an annotation with the product name.
    7. The first line of your description should be "Product Name Download: hxxp://www.yourafflink.com(cloak your affiliate link by buying a new domain and redirecting it, or use tinyurl)
    8. Get fast views to your video from here (BHW) or Fiverr ($1 for ~1000+ views, ~30 likes and some comments)
    9. Buy some link wheel or backlinks blast from Fiverr such as CrorkService.
    10. Repeat same process with other products.

    Or just go to Fiverr buy video review from there and upload to yourtube. Then repeat step 7, 8 and 9.

    Niche Websites/Blogs
    Low competitive niche + Domain name + hosting + 500 to 1000 words review + good quality backlinks


    1. Choose a domain name that is keyword rich in a niche that you are passionate about. By doing this it will be easier for you to update your blog on a semi - regular basis if your actually interested in what you will be blogging about ( But make sure it is in a profitable niche where there is money to be made ). You can buy a domain name at Godaddy, or Hostgator.com but I recommend you buy the domain name at the company you will be using as your webhost it will save you a little bit of time, and headache.
    2. Choose a webhost - I use Hostgator they have excellent customer service and they are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week for your convenience.
    3. If you run into problems getting your blog set up all you have to do is call Hostgator's customer support team and they will help you with any questions that you may have free of charge as long as you have a hosting package through them.
    4. Only post 100% unique content on your blog that is of high value. If you do not have anything to say or talk about do not blog that day save it for another day when you come up with a good idea for a blog post. People with be more inclined to share your blog post with others if it offers value to them. Traffic = money online. The more traffic you have the more money you are going to make.
    5. Monetize your blog with a few top converting affiliate offers. Make sure you capture leads from your blog's visitors so you can turn them into paying customers one day down the line by building a solid relationship with your email subscribers.
    6. Update your blog at least once or twice a week and stay steady with it. If you can update your blog more than that go ahead, but just make sure your blog posts are offering value of some sort.
    7. Content is king online - Content is the driving force of the internet and it is what the internet was made for ( contrary to what many say no it was not porn lol ). Give your blog visitors what they need some good solid content, and they will keep coming back for more. Hopefully with credit cards in hand next time.
    8. If niche isl ow competitive, then its easy to rank with some quality backlinks.

    Promoting Clickbank products with AdWords
    Promoting Clickbank products with AdWords is a little easier - often Google will approve campaigns that link directly to landing pages with your referral ID in them. Sometimes they won't however, so you'll have to do the same thing as is mentioned above for CPA; publish your own, useful landing page, with a banner on for people to click that takes them to the Clickbank page.

    Remember that a lot of other people also advertise Clickbank products on AdWords, so competition and consequently CPCs will be quite high for the more popular products. To that end, you should try and find a less "hyped" product and promote that - carving out your own niche can be very profitable. Don't just assume that by promoting the same products as everyone else you're going to be successful, because it doesn't always work like that.

    Email
    Email marketing is also an effective way of promoting products. Be careful, though. You don't want to continually pitch products to your subscribers. That's not a good strategy. Just like with your website, you should aim to provide nothing but quality, and promote products on occasion.
    Use your list to inform your audience of important site updates, special news and provide exclusive offers. Weave in relevant product links every so often.

    Social Media
    If you have a large following (especially if it's very niche), you can also make money promoting products via social media. Just remember, you can turn your follower's way off by being overly aggressive with affiliate links. However, a casual, relevant mention here and there is fine. And you don't even need a website to promote Clickbank products. You can just promote the hoplink I showed you how to create above.

    However, I've always found it to be more effective to mention products within articles rather than just promoting affiliate links by them.
    So instead of just tweeting a link to a product you are promoting, tweet a link that provides a relevant how-to article that includes a link to the product in the copy. That's a much better strategy.

    Using Banners to Promote The Products
    If the product you are promoting has banners you can use, there is usually a link to the affiliate program located at the bottom of the main sales page. This is where you can often find banners for your website. For example ebook, Niche Website Success, niche forums there is a link to the affiliate page at the bottom of the landing page. That's where I provide the code for affiliates to add banners/links into their sites.

    Nice tutorial but at least give some credit to those who wrote it. I see copy-paste from different websites and articles.

    Cheers

    Good summary of points. Certainly a good guide line! My 2cents:

    If you buy blasts from Fiverr, make sure they are your tier2 or tier3 links. These are not high quality links so for the longterm this won't work directly to your landing page or money site.

    It is generally good practice to acknowledge sources when posting content not authored by yourself.

    In any case, it is a good share and I especially agree with "I would suggest anything from 6 up to 50. Why? Because the competition is a little lower, but there are still plenty of people making money by selling that product." re gravity.

    Many IMers new to clickbank make the mistake of starting with high gravity products. As I elaborated in the thread below, low to medium gravity products are much more profitable than the high gravity ones, unless you are an experienced clickbank affiliate:

    I don't know about buying FAKE views. I been getting my views... naturally! Try posting your video on other social media platforms. Also, use YT ads for views.

    Knew a lot of things from what you've said, but as always, you learn something new every time so I've also learned a couple of new things that I will add to my strategies from now on.

    If I were to promote through youtube, would it be a good idea to link to a niche site that I've built around the topic/product, instead of sticking my affiliate link in the video description, or does simply linking straight to the products sales page still convert relatively well?

    So which monetisation method are you using, buddy?
    No offense, but I find this guide very vague to actually be able to earn from clickbank.
    It seems to me like a compillation of several threads/posts here on bhw. No breakthrough here.
    But that't just my impression, I'm sure some noobs will find it useful.

    Make a google search for the product name and see if the video has less the 20k views? If the video is searched so low, then how can the product be famous, I mean how do people search for the product?

    Just curious if that happens.

    what about the part where 90% of clickbank offers have popups which is not allowed on both bing and adwords?

    A lot of clickbank products have been banned on both bing and adwords. Meaning, direct links won't work.

    The only way to combat this is by cloaking. I'm sure adwords will deny your site even if you use a landing page (without cloaker). As for bing, they are a little more lenient if you use a landing page but it'll be better to cloak your site to avoid manual reviews.
