Would you like to learn how to make money with Clickbank?
These are frequently asked questions.
If you don’t figure out how to do affiliate marketing correctly, you’ll waste your time, money, and energy. You may even end up ruining your online reputation, and once that happens, you’re out of luck.
I’ve spent 10+ years as an affiliate marketer myself and have developed a three-part framework that will set you up to cash in and significantly grow your income over time.
In a nutshell, have faith.
This has proven to be the most effective formula for me through all of the sales messages, link promotion, and SEO I’ve done.
It’s known as T.T.O., which stands for Traffic, Trust, and Offer. It’s the little-known secret to online marketing success that no one is telling you about, and I’m going to reveal it to you in this post.
I’ll also give you a thorough rundown of the ClickBank Marketplace.
I’m going to show you how to analyze the data and identify products with a high conversion rate.
I’m going to give you some in-depth knowledge that will get you off to a good start.
Let’s get started! So, sort of…
Why not just dive headfirst into ClickBank?
People need to understand that this isn’t just a game of laziness and spamming links all day. It takes time and effort to learn the craft so that you can make informed decisions when promoting your products on Click Bank.
I’ve read dozens of comments from people who quit selling because they didn’t even get a proper start. So many people give up before even taking the first step.
However, that does not have to be your story.
YOU CAN GET IT RIGHT IF YOU PLAY YOUR CARDS RIGHT.
But, as with any online business, success does not happen overnight. Long-term thinking is the game’s name, and believe me, it will be well worth your time!
There is a lot of misinformation out there from scammers and fake gurus, but I’m going to teach you the most important steps you need to take to make real, long-term money on ClickBank.
What You Should Know About ClickBank Before Investing
I’m about to give you an in-depth, nuts-and-bolts examination of the ClickBank marketplace.
This one is a beast, but bear with me!
I want you to understand how the system works so that when I give you my three-part framework, you can apply what you’ve learned to your real-world business!
Before we begin, the most important thing you should understand is yourself!
You will have a much easier time figuring out this system if you know yourself and your audience.
If you choose high-ticket items simply because they are high-ticket items but know nothing about them, it will be much easier to make a mistake, promote a scam product, or be ill-equipped to provide your audience with the value they deserve.
Which is more logical?
Choose products about which you know nothing?
To select products from a niche that you are familiar with,
Remember that when selecting affiliate products to promote, they must be products in a niche you are knowledgeable about. This is critical for earning money as an affiliate marketer.
If you’re going to spend countless hours doing SEO and making sure every link you post is correct, you should have a general interest in the products you promote rather than doing something solely to make money.
You should genuinely enjoy and understand the game if you’re in the golf niche.
If you work in the dog niche, you should have prior experience caring for dogs.
Don’t just choose any product because it has a high price tag attached to it.
Choose affiliate products in a niche in which you have an unfair advantage, one in which you enjoy, and one in which you have experience and knowledge.
You’ll be able to connect with your audience better, and it’ll be easier to teach and build trust with them, allowing you to make affiliate offers that can solve their problems.
Find the best Clickbank products to promote, and then I’ll teach you the 3-step T.T.O. formula for increasing affiliate offer conversions.
How Does ClickBank Operate?
Take notes and go over Clickbank in conjunction with this post to get a hands-on understanding of the platform and everything it has to offer.
I’ll walk you through how to use ClickBank’s features and how to use them, and then I’ll go over how to analyze the data provided in greater detail. If you’re familiar with “on-page SEO,” this is a similar process. This time, you’re looking at each and every link through the eyes of an entrepreneur.
So let’s get started selling.
Let’s just get started! Go to Clickbank.com in a different browser.
At the top of the screen, select Affiliate Marketplace. You should see something like this on your screen.
There are several methods for searching for products. You can search for products using the search bar labeled “find products” under the category section on the left or by performing an advanced search.
In a moment, I’ll go over your advanced money-making search options in greater depth. First, familiarize yourself with the marketplace homepage and the types of data and statistics you’ll be looking at.
Let’s get acquainted.
I’m going to use “golf” as our product example in this post.
Select the sports category on the right, and a list of subcategories will appear beneath where you can click on “golf.”
Your end result will resemble the image below. The sales numbers and statistics shown in the image below may be different based on when you finish this follow-along tutorial.
These are all of the various golf-related offers.
The results are generated based on popularity and sorted from high to low.
You can, however, sort your results by:
- keyword significance
- average $
- The initial $
- Average Percentage
- the typical number of rebills
- rebill rate on average
Simple enough, but what do all of these terms mean?
What ClickBank Stats and Data Can Tell You
If you look at the example, you’ll notice a section in red at the bottom of the offer that says “Stats.”
It’s critical that you read the page and the results to help you find the most profitable products to sell and sort through bogus offers.
The particulars are crucial in this case…
I’ll mention the first number above the “promote” button, but everything else is below the offer.
Take a look at some data terms and what they mean to you.
Average Sale Price
This is the total of average amount earned by an affiliate for each product sold.
This includes any recurring billing on the product as well as any upsells that are part of the vendor’s funnel.
In layman’s terms, the average is the lifetime value of a product is expressed in dollars per sale.
Search for an average price per transaction on a product worth $100 or more.
The first dollar earned per sale.
The initial sale price can be found at the bottom of the product in the “stats” section.
This is your initial value.
Looking back at the image, affiliates make an average of $35.65 on the first transaction for this product.
Then there’s the rebill, which isn’t really that big of a deal.
So there’s about a $4 difference between the initial dollar per sale and the average dollar per sale, which means you’d make $4 if you sold this product.
Percentage of Average Sales
This is the average commission you will earn as an affiliate.
It is 74% of the total cost for the example product is, “The Stress-free Golf Swing.”
Average Total Rebill
The money you make on the backend is represented by the average rebill total.
Typically, it would be a number that was not significantly different from the average sale amount.
However, as you can see in the example product, there is a significant difference between the average rebill total and the average $/sales.
As an affiliate, I’d be curious as to why there’s such a disparity.
If you make $35.65 on the front end and $104.03 on the back end, your average dollar per transaction should be significantly higher than $39.
Average Rebill Percentage
Again, this is money on the backend, and it will only appear if the vendor uses recurring billing.
This could be commissioned from memberships, a subscription of some kind, or anything else that would have people billed on a regular basis.
Keep an eagle’s eye out…
In our example, the average rebill is 50%, which is an acceptable percentage and simply means that 50% of the customers are recurring. Keep an eye on the number of people who tend to stay on auto-bill. People may be tempted to click the “unsubscribe” link on their rebill notifications.
Gravity numbers rise as affiliates sell a product.
Gravity numbers rose by one point on the first day after a product was sold. If you don’t sell the product by day two, the gravity numbers begin to fall. So it goes from 1 point to 0.95, 0.90, 0.85, and so on.
It’s not a reflection of the number of affiliates selling products; rather, it’s a statistic indicating what’s a “hot item.” The weighted average is calculated over an eight-week period.
Keep a close eye on this metric!
Look for a product with a higher/bigger gravity number because it’s a good indicator that it’s a popular item, and you’ll be able to sell more of it.
There is, however, a delicate balance of gravity.
When Gravity Is Too Strong
If the gravity number is in the 150, 200, or 250 range or higher, it indicates that the product is extremely competitive.
It will be too competitive to enter with cold traffic unless you have a lot of trusts built with your own audience. People simply will not buy it.
But as we go through my T.T.O., you’ll see the best way to outperform your competitors.
Personally, I’m not interested in products with gravity values of between 0.1 and 2. I would consider a product with a gravity of between 3 and 4, but I would prefer one with a gravity of between 5 and 50.
Look for the following icons for affiliate products:
I love seeing the two positive icons under my stats!
The first is the Rebill Icon, which I refer to as “mailbox money.”
This icon indicates that this product has recurring billing, which allows you to continue selling it over time. There is also the issue of how well the product converts and the customer’s lifetime value.
The Pitch Plus Icon is the second thing to look for.
This icon indicates that this product has a one-click upsell offer, which means that there is more potential for additional sales with that product. If they have their upsell formula dialed in, roughly 30% of people will take them up on their offer.
You are not required to choose items with these icons, but I personally look for them because they imply that you can make a higher profit from the product you sell.
This may seem like a simple concept, but I’d like to point out that there are some excellent ways to refine your ClickBank searches.
What’s cool is that you can customize the parameters to your liking.
You can look for things like this:
- The first $1/transaction
- average dollar amount per transaction.
- Average Total Rebill
- the typical percentage/transaction
I prefer to search by gravity and average transaction volume.
You can also select the product type, Pitch Plus, and Recurring options I mentioned earlier. It’s quite convenient.
Allow market statistics to serve as your guide.
When searching through affiliate products, look for a product with a high average dollar per transaction and a high gravity number.
It may be difficult to learn how to do this precisely because many other digital affiliates are out there looking to promote things in the same way.
Of course, you can begin by experimenting with different parameters.
If you don’t yet understand all of the data, you will
If you want more information on marketplace statistics sales, return to the affiliate marketplace home page and click stats, or click on the red word stats found in every product description.
It will take you to a page similar to this one, where you can do more research on the categories, your search options, and other resources. Many people should read the fine print at this point.
You should be aware that not every product will be a success.
On ClickBank, there are many excellent products (gems) as well as many scammy products.
It’ll assist you in weeding out the dubious products listed below.
Now that you’ve learned how to locate Clickbank products, the question is:
Is it possible to make money with Clickbank?
Making money through Clickbank affiliate marketing is simple, but few people put in the effort required to successfully offer affiliate products.
To make money with Clickbank, you must work and do the right work on a consistent basis, as with any other business opportunity.
This is a three-piece framework that you must absolutely nail down.
This is critical; write it down somewhere and imprint it on your mind. This is what I call T.T.O., which stands for Traffic, Trust, and Offer.
This is a combination that so-called gurus overlook.
Let’s take a closer look at this…
If you want to keep making money promoting digital products, you need to think of it as a business, not just a quick way to make a few bucks.
Affiliate marketing is one of the most profitable online businesses; master these three fundamentals, and your future self will be grateful.
How Do You Want to Drive Traffic to Your Clickbank Offers?
As a third-party seller, your job is to solve problems at scale.
If you don’t know your unfair advantage, dig deep; this knowledge will help you in your business.
Then you must decide how you will attract that audience to your offers.
When it comes to traffic, you have two choices.
Start with the successful $5 per day Facebook ad campaign if you have more money than time.
Paid traffic is a difficult path to take if you’re just getting started.
There are a lot of moving parts that must be adjusted right away.
It will be difficult to take if you don’t know how to build your funnel, aren’t an experienced copywriter, are learning to Copyright, or don’t have experience buying advertising.
You can easily spend $1,000 to $15,000 on advertising without seeing a single return.
This is why I advise newcomers to the affiliate sales and marketing world to avoid paying traffic and instead investigate the best Facebook ad alternatives.
Content – Driven Traffic
Do you have more time than money, or are you just starting out? This is your time to shine with content marketing!
Content marketing can drive massive traffic and is a “free” way to earn traffic.
Become a keyword research ninja and use a content marketing strategy to create useful core content. This includes the written word for your blogs, YouTube videos, and/or podcasts.
You can then build social links around your content to direct web traffic to it and ClickBank links.
There are even websites that only make money through affiliate marketing!
Maintain consistency in your content creation.
To get picked up by search engines, take my free SEO course and watch your traffic grow.
This will require a significant amount of effort, but it will be well worth it.
How to Make a Name for Yourself Through Trust
Once you’ve gotten their attention, you’ll need to earn their trust.
There are a lot of people selling what you’re selling, so how can you be one of the successful affiliates if you don’t stand out?
If you want to make money with ClickBank, your audience must have faith in you.
This is yet another critical step in the process. Normally, out of all the comments and questions I’ve received over the years,
So, how do you go about establishing trust through useful emails and valuable content?
Consider this: if you write a review post for multiple products, do your research, and tell your audience how much each product costs and where it can be purchased, who would you trust more?
Is someone simply trying to sell you something… or someone who has taken the time to provide you with added value? The same is true for your email list.
When you give more, your audience will realize you aren’t just in it for yourself and are genuinely interested in assisting them and solving their problems.
They’re smarter than you think, and people will notice if you appear shady or unauthentic. Don’t forget what I said about your reputation; it’s no laughing matter.
Again, trust is essential.
Trust is never something you can buy. It is only through your own integrity and hard work that you can build relationships over time.
Offer: Provide value in order to improve people’s lives.
Pay attention to what your audience is saying. Every step of the way, read the comments. This is when you’ll find out if the link you shared in the previous email was truly valuable.
These are minor details, but it is important to pay attention to the feedback from your list.
After giving them your free advice, tips, videos, and so on, and gaining their trust, you can now present your affiliate offer.
What happens if they do not purchase it?
Give them another jab. Consider another offer.
Continue to provide value.
Help improve your readers’ lives, achieve their goals, and solve their problems with the online treasure map!
It is not simple, but it is the only way to truly win!
Without established trust, no one will purchase from you, no one will open your emails, and no one will consider your offer.
The T.T.O. approach is how you pay off your debts, start your own business, and live the life of your dreams.
Deep Understanding: Increasing Your List Is Non-Negotiable
It is critical that you create a list.
This is not only a good way to get more customers, but it also protects you from algorithm changes on a platform.
You’ll still be able to connect with your target audience and the people you want to help.
So, how do you start and grow your list?
Create a great opt-in page that will add value to your audience or solve a problem they are experiencing.
In exchange for their email I.D., you can make an offer.
Follow through, deliver what they want, and you will build trust.
Do you want to send them an affiliate offer right away?
A bridge page in your affiliate funnel lets people check out a ClickBank product right away after they sign up.
Perform a follow-up sequence before linking to the affiliate program.
Then you run a split test on both.
Choosing a Specialization
You have a MASSIVE list of options to choose from when you first start out. Remember! You should choose something in which you have a vested interest!
