If you’re like me, you’ve seen a few videos on TikTok or YouTube talking about how easy it is to get started on Clickbank. Even if you haven’t, I’ve done a bit of research, watched all the videos and did some training to test it out. Is it really that easy, and are the people making $10,000 a week or even a day the exception? As Marie Forleo says, Everything is Figureoutable, so I’m going to dig in! As time goes by I’ll update this post with how it’s working for me.
What is Clickbank Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is promoting a product/service on behalf of a business for a percentage of the revenue. Clickbank is a website where you can sign up for free, and have access to thousands of these products/services. You will receive a link that is unique to you to promote the product so the company you are helping to promote knows the referral came from you.
How to Get Started Clickbank Affiliate Marketing
Go to Clickbank.com and get signed up for free.
Click the blue Start Here button and fill it out. Once you are in, click into the Affiliate Marketplace on the left hand menu.
The Affiliate Marketplace will look like this:
From here, you can again go to the left hand menu to select a niche, or simply click the magnifying glass in the search bar. You do not enter text into the search, just click the magnifying glass. This will sort all products to show you the ones with the highest popularity and sales.
You will notice each offer has a gravity score. This is a calculation of the amount of affiliates that have sold that product over the past 12 weeks. You may have to test out different ranges to find your sweet spot. I saw some trainings mention that if the gravity score is too high, the competition will be too high as well.
Rank shows the highest converting offers.
Click on the affiliate page link for more information on the product.
Choose a topic you are passionate about, as you will be posting about it often. That said, some categories do better than others. Those are:
- Health and Fitness
- Making Money Online
Choosing the Product to Promote
As I previously mentioned, you’ll want to check the Gravity, Rank, and also the Average Commission. Take a look at the offer to make sure it looks good: good deal, reliable product, transparent practices, if they offer upsells and bonus items. Click on the offer and look at it not as a promoter, but a consumer. Does it entice you? Seem legit? Look for an offer that would draw you in.
Or, head over to CBSnooper.com. This website helps you find winning products on Clickbank, and is also free to sign up. It is updated daily on new products, up and coming products that are worth promoting, and which are not. Here is a screenshot of what you will find:
Grab Your Link
Once you’ve found the product you’d like to promote, back on the Clickbank Affiliate Marketplace, click the button that says “Affiliate Page” on the right side of the promotion. This will take you to the offer. Here is an example of their top offer for Exipure.
On the top menu bar, you’ll see all the links to provide you with what you’ll need to promote this product, including your affiliate link, install pixels, email swipes, and images.
Choose where to promote your Landing Page/Affiliate Link
Choose one to start and master it before trying another. Don’t be tempted to change- keep at it and really learn the ins and outs. Just one platform should bring you enough traffic to earn a great income as an affiliate. The platforms to choose from include:
- Solo Ads (pay someone with an email list to send your message)
- Banner Ads
- Google AdWords
Just Getting Started
This is basic information to get the ball rolling with your affiliate marketing business. I’ll post again soon with more in depth information; next steps to growing your business. One way to get started is to find/create relevant photos in canva, post those images on Pinterest along with your affiliate link. Let me know what questions you have!
