Ready to make money with ClickBank? Let’s dive in…
Step 1: Find A Niche With A Lot Of Ready Buyers
The first step on how to make money with Clickbank is to decide on the type of product you want to promote. To do this, you will have to decide on the niche you want to focus your business on.
A ‘niche’ basically means a small market segment of a larger market that a specific product falls into.
Let’s face it. In order to make money online, people must buy your products.
The trick here is:
Find a niche whose audiences always spend money because, in theory, they’ll make that initial expense back. These are the niches with a big and obvious ‘value proposition’.
A value proposition is a thing that people will want to buy your products and the ‘way’ that they hope their lives will benefit. This is your first secret in your journey to make money with Clickbank.
Some of the niches with the biggest value propositions are:
make money, finance and health, and fitness
Step 2: Find A Good Product To Promote
In order to make money on Clickbank, you need to choose a good product that sells well.
It is rather unfortunate that this step is the most overlooked step in making money with Clickbank. Not all products sell well.
In contrast, some products sell themselves. It all boils down to selecting a quality product with high demand.
Low-quality products don’t sell and when they do in rare cases, buyers asked for a refund. This way, you lose your commissions because the buyer is not happy with the product.
So in order to make money with Clickbank, you have to be very careful with the products you choose to promote.
I highly suggest you purchase any product that you want to promote to test it yourself. Ask yourself if you will be willing to buy such a product for that price. Your answer will guide you.
However, as a beginner, you may not have money to buy and test products all the time. Where that is the situation, ClickBank has certain filters you can use to find a good product.
To be honest with you, there is no straightforward answer to this question. Mr. X promoted product A and succeeded does not necessarily mean you can promote the same product have the same results.
However, there are some important suggestions that can help you choose a high converting product on the ClickBank marketplace.
Check The Gravity Of The Product
Gravity is a measure of how many unique affiliates have successfully sold the product within the last 12 weeks.
You can’t rely too much on gravity because it is not an accurate indicator of sales. If a product has a low gravity, it could simply mean that it is a new product that has not had many sales yet.
A high gravity indicates that there is a lot of competition for that product and there are many affiliates making money with that product. It simply means there is lots of demand for the product.
Check the Commissions
A $3 commission will not pay off, to be candid. Unless you want to waste your valuable time and efforts. Luckily, almost all ClickBank products have a high commission payout.
I recommend products paying out at least 50% commissions and make sure that commission is not less than $20. This is the only way you will make money with Clickbank after you have subtracted your expenses.
Check The Affiliates Tools Page
I recommend you promote products whose vendors offer support for their affiliates. The more affiliate tools provided, the easier to promote the product. A good affiliate tools page will contain professionally designed banners, keywords, free reports (lead magnets) to give away, email swipes, product images etc.
Make sure you take advantage of the tools provided. It will help your pre-selling pretty easily.
Check the Vendors Sales Page
All your traffic is aimed at reaching one place – the sale page of the product you are promoting. You don’t want to send them to a page that does not convert. Since the sales page will determine the conversions of your HopLinks into commissions, you should make sure that it is convincing and it addresses the needs of your visitors.
I’m assuming by now you are well equipped with what it takes to select a good product to promote.
Step 3: Build Your High Converting Funnel
So the 3rd step on how to make money with Clickbank is to set up your affiliate funnel.
Your funnel is where you send your traffic to generate leads and sales. It determines the success or failure of your affiliate marketing campaigns.
So to become successful in affiliate marketing (make money with Clickbank), you need to know how to create an affiliate funnel that does the selling for you. Once you master how to build a high converting funnel, you can even make money on Clickbank without a website.
A high converting affiliate funnel will automatically:
- capture your visitor’s emails
- deliver you lead magnets to your prospects
- send them follow up messages to push them to buy
- put your visitors in your retargeting list
- sell your products easier for you
The affiliate marketing funnel I used in my CB Profitizer course looks like this:
This funnel may seem a little advanced but it is not difficult to create one like this. This is the exact funnel I use in all my affiliate marketing campaigns.
Why do you need a sales funnel?
Your sales funnel will help you in these ways
- Build your custom audience
- Build your email list
- Increase your sales
Let’s talk custom audience.
Your custom audience is the group of people who have already shown interest in you your offer. These are your squeeze page visitors in this case. Anybody who lands on your squeeze page must have some interested in your offer.
To collect this custom audience, you will have to install a pixel on your squeeze page that collects your visitors’ data. This way, you can re-target them with ads. Re-target ads are extremely cheaper than normal ads and they convert far better.
So now, how do you create a sales funnel?
If you want to create a professional and high converting sales funnel to promote your affiliate products, I suggest you use Clickfunnels. It is the best tool to build affiliate sales funnel because you can build your funnel in under ten minutes. You don’t need to know any line of code, it’s all drag and drop.
Grab Your Free 2-Week Access To Clickfunnels
Here’s how the sales funnel works:
- You send your traffic to a squeeze page where you offer a free gift in exchange of their email addresses
- Visitor summits email to access your free gift. His email is now in your list
- He is redirected to the offer you are promoting or to a thank you page
All the steps on how to build a high converting funnel is covered in the CB Profitizer course. This course is a complete case study revealing secrets to making $1000 a day or more with ClickBank.
This way, you are building your list and making sales at the same time. Many visitors will not buy for the first time but you can still make some sales. The real money is now on your list. Probably you’ve heard of the old internet marketing adage ‘the money is in the list’.
Step 4: Setting Up Your Autoresponder
You will now set up an autoresponder with any email marketing service of your choice. I recommend Getresponse because, in my opinion, it’s the best email autoresponder service for affiliate marketers.
Your autoresponder will send a welcome message immediately a visitor subscribes to your list and gives him the link to access the offer they opted in for. You load this messages in your autoresponder. Also, your subscribers will be sent follow up messages. Here is where you make a lot of sales.
If you can craft follow up emails, good. If you can’t, you are not out of luck because most of the products on ClickBank gives you a series of emails to load in your autoresponder. These are called swipes.
Since it is in the best interest of the vendor to help you make more sales, the swipes given to you (the affiliate) are usually tested to convert. Just copy these messages and paste them in your email follow up series. Make sure you replace the links in the email copies with your own affiliate link.
The first email is the welcome email automatically send to your subscribers immediately they subscribe to your list. This is the email that should contain the link to your free PDF report so that they can download it easily.
The other emails (usually 3 – 4) should focus on providing short valuable information to help build trust and engagement. While you are providing them with valuable information, don’t forget to mention your product and how it can help them. Put your affiliate link and ask them to check the product.
The final email should create urgency. Give them a final chance to see your product. Mention all the benefits they can get from the product. You can push hard to make sales in this email.
Once you implement this strategy, you will be surprised how many sales you will be making from you follow up emails.
What helps your conversions here is because your list already trusts you because you have been providing them with valuable information on your emails. Once there is a strong rapport between you and your list, they trust any product you recommend to them.
Engineering this process perfectly requires a lot but is not difficult. Most of my students were able to create their own conversion optimized funnels after taking the CB Profitizer course.
Step 5: Send Traffic To Your Squeeze Page
Here is where a lot of affiliates fail. To make money with Clickbank, you need to make sure that you get cheap traffic that is highly targeted.
If your traffic is expensive, you may not make any profit from your commissions. Also, if the traffic is not highly targeted, you will hardly make any conversions. So the formula is:
Cheap Targeted Traffic = Profit
The most highly targeted traffic in the world is search traffic – Google and Bing. The reason is simple. With search traffic, people use keywords to look for solutions and from these keywords, you will be able to know the stage in the conversion funnel.
That is if they are ready to buy. Such keywords are called buyer keywords.
The downside here is such keywords are usually expensive and the ability to identify buyer keywords also is a skill. So the secret of the top affiliates making millions in commissions is that they can fetch cheap buyer keywords.
This is the core of the CB Profitizer course. It teaches affiliates a secret way to use Google Ads to fetch out extremely cheap buyer keywords. It also teaches you how to identify your converting keywords so that you will only target the best keywords for your campaigns.
Say you are promoting red tea detox which pays 75% of the front end price which is around $25. Using the CB Profitizer, you get cheap buyer keywords with decent search volume like:
Keywords 11, 17 and 20 are good keywords to target. People using them are looking for a tea that burns fat. Keyword 20 is a buyer keyword because the person is looking for the best tea. He is likely to convert.
I can’t leak everything about the Profitizer course but let me do you this favor and give you a single chapter here for free. If you are struggling to make money online with ClickBank, then tighten your seat belts.
This method called the Coper Method. Here’s how it works:
- You look for people in doubt if a certain product works to solve their problem or not. The keywords they use usually doesn’t show buyer readiness but they are usually cheap. Such people can quickly turn to buyers once they are convinced.
- Next, you create a content to convince them that the XX system works. Once they are convinced, they are likely to check it out. Place your banner on the page and links to the product.
- Give them a little story of how it has helped someone. This will convince them more.
- Use testimonials or fake Facebook comments. The strategy seems little dirty here but as long as you are sure that the product you are promoting works, then it is fine. Never generate fake testimonials for a product you aren’t sure works.
- Install a Facebook pixel on your page so that you can retarget them with cheap ads because they are already your custom audience.
Here is why this system works:
These keywords are usually very cheap with low PPC competition because they are usually ignored by advertisers because they are always looking for buyer keywords.
You can see that the Cost Per Click is at zero and the competition is very low. It is your chance to get such keywords for as low as 0.05 per click so that you can send 100 visitors at $5.
So from the keywords above, you can craft a headline like this:
Can A Mere Tea Help You Lose Weight? A Weight Loss Expert Reveals The Truth
The way to find such type of keywords is to use the questions feature of the LongTail Pro keyword research tool. You can create a free account here.
Why does this method work?
What makes this method work is that people trust content more than mere landing pages.
Another reason why the system works is that, when you convince a person that something works, he will be eager to purchase the product because he is already convinced.
Another little trick here is:
Install a Facebook pixel on the page so that you can retarget all your page visitors on Facebook. Once a visitor is convinced that a certain system or product works, the next day he sees an ad about that product on his Facebook account, he will trust the product. This alone will skyrocket your sales.
This strategy flat works.
To make it work even better, I use the ConnectAudience tool. What this tool does is to target only visitors who have engaged with your content to some extent. This way, you avoid retargeting audiences that just visited the page and bounced back or those that didn’t engage with your pages content.
Usually, Facebook pixel collects the data of all visitors regardless of the time they spent on the page or their level of engagement with your page. This is where ConnectAudience comes in. It makes sure that you only retarget those who are more likely to convert. This way, it helps you avoid wasting your money on ads.
