If you’re new to affiliate marketing, the easiest way to get started is to target hungry market and choose products to promote from www.Clickbank.com.
In Clickbank, you will be promoting digital products. These are downloadable products like ebooks, memberships to websites, videos, software and similar items.
You may find commission rates as high as 50%, 75% or even more on digital products since the vendor doesn’t have as high overhead costs for these products.
You need to target hungry market and find out what the market is already buying, and you’ll sign up for related affiliate programs.
That way, you earn a nice commission every time someone buys one of these products through your link.
So let’s go through the steps required to find these products and then do your due diligence to make sure they’re suitable. These steps include:
Let’s look at each of these steps in more detail:
Go to www.Clickbank.com. What you want to do is run a search for your niche’s main keywords (like “dog training” or “organic gardening”), and then look for two things:
Now that you have found the top-selling products in your niche, you have to research them:
Now you need to make sure that you’re recommending good products to your prospects. That’s because your reputation is very important, and you’ll be developing a relationship with your newsletter subscribers.
If you recommend poor products, you might get your subscribers and other visitors to buy from you once … but never again.
If you consistently recommend good solutions, then your subscribers will come to trust you, and they’ll buy your recommendations again and again.
Your first step is to read or otherwise review the product yourself.
In other words, buy the product and use it.
If it’s an ebook, read it. If it’s a software, use it. You should automatically eliminate any poor-quality products from your list.
Now you have a list of solid products. Your next step is to do some research on Google by searching for the product name and the product creator’s name. You might also do additional searches using words like “review” and “problems” (e.g., [product name] problems). What you’re looking for are any red flags, such as customers complaining about lack of functionality, lack of support, an inability to get a refund and so on.
Once you’ve further narrowed down the list by doing your due diligence on the products and vendors, go to the next step.
You need to make sure that there are no commission leaks on the page.
That is, you need to make sure the vendor hasn’t inadvertently (or deliberately) set up the page in a way that hijacks your commission link or decreases the conversion rate.
Here’s what to look for:
You can use link shortener link bit.ly, tinyurl.com, etc to hide your affiliate link. Or if you’re familiar with WordPress, there are many affiliate link plugins that are free to use.
Once you’ve completed this check, then move onto the next step …
Now that you’ve done all the research, you can choose the best products from your list.
You’ll do this based on the overall quality of the product, the commission rate and other relevant factors (such as whether you think the sales materials will produce a high visitor-to-buyer conversion rate).
Go ahead and rank these products, with your top pick at the top of.
While you may promote all of these products at some point, you’ll.
start by focusing on just one product.
Finally, join the affiliate program and get your affiliate link (this is the link you’ll give to your prospects when you promote the product so that you get credit for the sale).
It’s very simple to get your affiliate link.
Once you decided the product you wish to promote, just click on the “Promote” button beside the product description like the following:
With that link, you can start promoting this product as an affiliate!
Very simple, right?
