Whether you are in internet marketing or not, there is a good chance you’ve heard of Clickbank. Don’t worry if you haven’t because I’ll explain exactly what it is below.
Most marketers first look at Clickbank as finding that lost goldmine and making a ton of money from it. They think they’re going to jump in, find a product, promote it and immediately start making thousands of dollars. Well sorry to disappoint you, it just doesn’t happen that way.
So, why do so many marketers believe they can make money with this platform called Clickbank?
That’s because they see other marketers making pretty good income from it. Many in fact are making $10,000+ per month with Clickbank as a side income. I know that may sound too good to be true for some, but for others it’s a reality. That’s why I’m going to show you exactly how to make money with clickbank.
So what is Clickbank & how to make money with it?
Clickbank is an affiliate network where an affiliate can go to find products that other people have made and promote them. When someone buys a product because you referred them, you get the commission.
There are thousands of products to choose from on Clickbank which makes it easy for people to find that something that they feel comfortable promoting. Some of these products are in use every day & people have no idea that it can be found in the Clickbank marketplace.
How to pick the best products?
Usually, the first thing someone does when looking to promote a product from Clickbank is to look to see which products will make them the most money. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing to do, it may not be the best product for you to promote.
Because the Clickbank marketplace has so many products to choose from, typically you will be able to find something you’re interested in. If you find and promote something you have an interest in, then you’ll be able to create more content around that topic or product.
Too often marketers promote something that they don’t care about and when they find out that marketing it is hard work, they quit. So, I recommend finding and promoting something you have an interest in so you have more drive to continue with marketing the product.
What are sales funnels and how to use them for Clickbank?
A sales funnels consists of a few pages:
- A lead capture page.
- A thank-you page.
- A sales page.
If you’re serious about making money through affiliate marketing you must have a sales funnel in place.
Not using a sales funnel is one of the biggest mistakes most beginner marketers make.
When you use a sales funnel service like iFunnels, you can then capture leads. These leads will be put into an autoresponder which is where you can follow-up with the buyer/prospect at a later time.
How to automate the sales process with email marketing
It shouldn’t come to you as a surprise that 90% of people won’t buy a product the first time they see it. This is true out in the real world and here online.
So, if you have someone who came through your capture page because they were interested in what you had to offer but didn’t buy, what now?
This is where the power of email marketing comes into play.
When you setup an autoresponder you can send a series of email automatically to your prospects. Remember, these people were already interested in what you had to offer, they just simply didn’t buy.
When you have an automated email sequence go out over days or even weeks, you can put the product back in front of them multiple times.
In these email you’ll talk about the benefits of the product and when they’re ready, they pull the trigger.
Remember, if you don’t setup a capture page and autoresponder, you can’t continue to market to your prospects.
