Clickbank is an affiliate program that generally doesn't even need approval. It's free to simply register and join. Then, you can locate a product to promote. These are all digital type products - downloads of some kind. eBooks are big here, but there is also software, audio files and most anything that can be downloaded.

One of our members was having difficulty discovering how to find their affiliate link within Clickbank and so that was how this video came to be. So, in this video you will learn....

  1. How to find a Clickbank Product to Promote
  2. How to determine if one is doing well (other affiliates are making money)
  3. How to find your affiliate link for that product
  4. Downloading the banner image
  5. Posting both the image and the affiliate link into a blog post

Although Clickbank has few products than say Amazon, the profit margin is much much bigger. With Amazon, we're seeing between 4 and 8% profit. With Clickbank products, we talking about 50-75% profit.

But, Clickbank can be a wee bit harder to sell.

Within the video I talk about "Gravity". Gravity is a measuring term that Clickbank uses to let you know how well a product is doing. The higher the gravity, the more money affiliates have made with that product. Anything with a Gravity score of 100 or more is doing well. So, look for that. Also, click on the title of the product and you'll see the product owner's landing page. Be sure to always review the landing page. Is it solid. Are there professional images, good content, strong CTA. Does it work for you? Are you tempted to buy. Because that visit your website and click your affiliate link are then taken to this same sales page. And, believe me some of the products on Clickbank have been there a long time and some just have terrible sales pages, which tells me the owner of the product didn't put enough time in marketing and there is a high probability that the product stinks.

As always, do your keyword research to see if you're going to enough traffic to make money with a product you may find on CB (Clickbank). Then, perform a few Google searches and check out the competition. Most websites that are built for CB products are "mini-sites". Built entirely for the purpose of selling that product. So, check for any review type websites for the product as well as "scam" websites. Those guys are your competition.

Well, I hope the video was helpful (Krissy). If you have any questions, please let me know. As always, please comment and "Like" below if you wish for me to keep creating training. :-)

Cheers,

pj

This training is awesome! I've been looking into the Clickbank wilderness for some time now and so happy to see a breakdown of how it actually works.

Please can you tell me what the best size image is to use in a post on Wordpress if editing in Pixlr. Thanks

You are always so kind, Triblu.
Thank you very much Ill visit the link kindly provided.
And, if I may, I would like to take advantage of your presence here to ask you a question that Im sure youll be able to answer.
I have created a sales funnel with kompozer (squeeze page, upsell page and thankyou/download page).
Now Id like to know how to upload the PLR product which is the object of rhe upsell that people get if they take the upsell)
Should I put together all the PLR components in just one zip folder and upload it?
Where can I find a training for what Im trying to do? (basically everything about sales fuennels)
Thanks again, Triblu.

Hey Phil,

The following tutorial may offer you the help you seek with PDF documents: As for placing your PLR all in one zip file, that would be entirely your own decision. However, the larger a file is the harder it may be for those on dialup type services to download.

If you prefer to to use a zip file, then the following tutorial may offer you the help you seek: For help finding tutorials here at WA, see screen print below.

Hope this helps you.

Hi Pj, this video is great, I get this error when I try to click on my affiliate link on clickbank "This site is no longer in service or has been disabled due to a terms of service violation."

Any idea on how I can fix it? is not a problem with the vendor. Cos other peoples affiliate links works.

Hi,PJ. If they website you choose to promote from Clickbank doesn't have the affiliate tab, how can you get the HTML code to promote that product?

Find the product in the Clickbank database. Use the search function in there.

Wow........PeeeeJ, there you go again throwing out all this top notch content...I've just marked it A+!

Another WA member suggested a similar one on JV Zoo.....that would be awesome as well.

Have you gotten into building an ecommerce site yet.....like Shopify or another platform...and tying it into Pinterest and their buyable pin program?

Are you still hitten' the gym everyday ?

Is there a way to read through the product on clickbank before deciding to promote it to ensure that it matches up with your niche?
Reply
PjGermain Premium
If you have a really good website, you can contact the owner and ask for a "review copy" a lot of times, they'll give it to you for free. But, all things on Clickbank have a 60 day guarantee...... so, you "could" purchase it, review it and ask for your money back.

Interesting, PJ., a few questions:
Do you always advert CB products on your site this way?
Arent you supposed to arrange the product advertising so that prospect visitors to your site will have to leave their email to you first then get to the vendor site to buy?
Do you always advert CB products on your site this way?
Do you not use your squeeze pages to sell CB products? If you do, will you have the SP in a post on your site?
Do you dedicate one post for each CB product?
Do you always make a product review?
Would it be convenient to have a site just dedicated to advertize any kind of product, a bunch of products?
Thanks. Ciao
Reply
PjGermain Premium
Hey Phil....well, first of all, I don't "always" do anything really. LOL!!
You can advertise it any way you wish. Using an opt-in and emails are very effective, but so are reviews. And, I have sold some just having it plugged into a sidebar off by itself or within a paragraph of text that was relevant. but, you might want to Google the product and see how others are doing it to give yourself some ideas.

Thanks PJ great post! Thanks for the information. I was wondering how to use Clickbank, now I can look into it.

Can I ask you how you did your video? I made a video with SnagIt, but wasn't able to upload it to my post. I got a message that said the MP4 file was too big to load. I had to upload it to YouTube first and then copy the link to my post. Is there another way to do this? Is there another video product I need to use?
