How to Pick a Clickbank Product to Promote


Clickbank offers a variety of products with high commissions. This is one of the reasons why Clickbank is popular starting out with internet marketing. I say popular starting out, a lot of internet marketers seem to move away from Clickbank products the longer they work in the biz. Not always true but some of us do.

From my own experience I have promoted a lot of different Clickbank products, some very successfully and some not so much lol. It all comes down to matching the right solution/product with the right customer. You have to give your visitor what they are looking for.

My own Clickbank best seller target a small group with a very specific problem and I give them a solution to that specific problem. This has made me good money over the last 5 years. So even though I don`t pick up that many new products at Clickbank today to promote I still hold on to the ”golden nuggets” that I have found over the years.

Clickbank is no different than any other affiliate products make sure you have relevant content on your site pointing to a relevant solution/product at Clickbank and that will get you sales.

How to Pick a Clickbank Product to Promote

1. Pick a Niche

2. Clickbank Marketplace

3. Check Out the Website/Sales Page

4. CB Engine


Lets go and pick a niche for this training.

There are certain things I look out for when choosing a Clickbank product:

Does the video start on the product page immediately? You want to grab the viewers attention in the first second.

Is there a Javascript pop up that comes up if the viewer clicks away? Something like a 'wait, don't go, try this for a dollar' or something like that - it's amazing to see how this can convert, no matter how annoying we might think it is.

Affiliate tools - I like to go for a product that has affiliate tools - banners, email scripts for you to copy and paste. It usually means the company believe in their product and they are keen to help you out as their affiliate. Always a good sign

I don't think you can. Try Click2Sell.com, see if your country is included. I know they don't demand you use Paypal but can get paid through a wire service.

Try using a VPN service to hide your IP adress... the best i have tried is cyberghost, premium version (be carefull of using the free version because it fails; if is the only solution, then monitor it because sometimes gets disconnected).

This service allows you to connect to the web from a foreign server, for instance a US server, so to Clickbank seems that you are connected from New York, for example...

Good Luck!

Quick question, what would you suggest as the best platform to promote these products, a website or social media or landing page? I have usually read about how landing pages are best, kinda confused.

Hello Veronica.. Thank you for your training. It is very helpful for me.
I have a small questionfor for you regarding promoting Clickbank products. What is the best place to put an article promoting Clickbank product: website page or post? I promote couple other products on my home page and posts, and I am not sure if I can promote the Clickbank product on an another page. Or should I better create another website just for the particular Clickbank product?
Can you please clarify it for me. Thank you. Tanya

You should build a website around the clickbank site and sell an ebook.
I have yet to see a better explanation of "how to" for clickbank.
Have you ever promoted a clickbank site itself without the use of a website?
I look forward to following your continuing success.

Thank you Veronica. I will like a clearification on generating the affiliate link to use in promoting products. Is it enough to just click on "PROMOTE" and copy the link or shoud I use the format where I put in my username and the vendors code in URL and use that to promote products.

Thanks

Thanks for the heads up. I was toying with the idea of promoting a product on CB but unsure how to go about it. Your insight has been great. Love the idea of emailing the vendor for a free copy to try, would not have thought of that myself.
Reply
veronica.l Premium
There are a lot of junk but you can really find some good products on CB that help people. It is not uncommon that they will give you a copy if the product is not related to the "make money" niche at least it is worth a try right.

Thanks for the info - did not know that CB engine existed , which seems like a handy tool.
Just thought I would add that the reason CB comms are so high is because the products are Digital.Once purchased the products are delivered by means of downloads and therefore don't require any logistics, ie - there are no delivery costs, storage costs, advertising costs etc.
Generally Physical products (like Amazon) have lower comms because of their associated costs such as all the logistics involved etc.
Personally I purchse the Click Bank product to determine if the product is any good and secondly I can find useful info about the product to promote.It also gives me as the reviewer a bit of credibility.
ClickBank offer a refund of 60 Days which is handy if the product is no good - BUT this element has a downfall as once a product is downloaded the ownership falls in the hands of the purchaser.If your customer requests a refund from Clickbank within the 60 days , they will obtain the refund but will always have the product.You as the affiliate will now lose the comms. The point I'm trying to make here, is don't emphasize the 60 Day return policy as you will get people that will try and game the system for a Freebie. On the other hand don't purchase the product for the sake of reviewing it and then request a refund as Click Bank will ban you if you do this a couple of times.Also be sure not to purchase a Clickbank product through your own Affiliate Id,with the intent to get the comms back to your account - this can also get you banned.

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the extra info on this subject, excellent.
I absolutly agree about purchasing the book or even get it for free other than "make money ninche" vendors are pretty good about giving out their ebook to affiliates.

As far as the refund, you can check the initial earnings by sale at cbengine it is impacted by refunds and chargebacks, this will give you a good idea if there is a lot of refunds.

I have not been promoting any "make money" products from Clickbank but I can see that the refund might be a problem here. I have not seen many refunds with the products that I have promoted.

Thanks Colin great points,

Veronica

What do you do if they have opt-ins? I once did promote a program that had an optin in the banner. Never made one sale, though I send some 400 visitors. I no longer promote if there's an optin. Obviously, that's only me based on one experience. I'd really like to know of other people's experiences promoting sites with optins.
Reply
veronica.l Premium
So if they opt-in, it was no longer a referal from you??
If that is the case I would not promote that product. Now if they have an opt-in and you get credit for a product purchase down the funnel I would promote it.

Good information, Veronica! I wondered how to find a good clickbank product. I thought I would have to buy the book to decide if it is worth promoting. Your suggestions to research the product is very helpful. A clickbank product came up in a google search and I am looking at that one now. But you helped me to find more products before promoting the one I found. Thanks for developing this training!
Reply

You are welcome, glad you liked it.
When you have found a good product I would recommend to email the vendor and say that you are interested in promoting it as an affiliate, a lot of times they will share the product with you.

Excellent resource Veronica!

I know clickbank has a bad reputation for selling rubbish but you do find some nice gems in there too. Your tip about searching for lower gravity usually filters out a lot of the scammy products too. They always seem to have extremely high gravity!
