Is Clickbank The Way To Go?
Even if you are new to online marketing, you would have to be living under a rock to have not heard of Clickbank. The online giant of promoting others products really. So many programs tell you to make a site, go out and just market Clickbank products on your site and you will make $$$. Is this true. Well, yes and no. They just give you a general idea, but if you don’t implement it correctly, than you will get NO sales. As most things are, it is not as easy as it sounds.
Lets go a little deeper as this is a trap I fell into in the beginning as well.
- Find a market first! Most people like myself would go look through the products first and then go try and build a website around that product. As this may work sometimes, most of the time 100 other people are doing the same thing for the exact same product! So unless you are a super SEO, your going to have a horrible uphill battle. Instead, look for niches where there is a demand and little competition. Use google keyword tool and do some research first.
- Look at more than just Clickbank! There are tons of affiliate marketers out there, not just Clickbank! In fact, if you can go straight to a source and get affiliate, that is the absolute best route. If not, just google your keyword and “affiliate sites”. you will come up with a host of options other people might not be considering and you may be one of very few offering your product. Why battle the pros?!
- Write honest and good content! You now have a product and you know what people are looking for, so give it to them! I would write 50 blog posts on every product you want to offer and link them all to that product. I would also make a youtube video for every post! Yes this is work, but this is how you make money.
These are just a few examples that I see so many people not follow. There are simple, but you need to start with simple. Everything doesn’t need to be complex. Once you get a few sale s and start getting the hang of things, then go out and get complex if you wish. Just start off simple so you can make a little money and feel good.
