Hey everyone, Steven Banks here and I hope you’re doing well. If you’re reading this Clickbank tutorial right now then you’re probably doing some research online about how to make money using Clickbank, step-by-step.
Okay, so over the next few minutes I’m gonna show you exactly how to do and I’m gonna take you through the process of what to do and what not to do.
So first of all you have to create an account on Clickbank.
Clickbank is obviously the biggest affiliate market place in the world and the cool thing about it is all you need to do is go to their ‘marketplace’ and you can literally just find a whole bunch of different niche markets that you can market in.
So let’s look at the weight loss niche and let’s see how this actually works.
So if I have decided on a niche that you want to promote, you can sort it by gravity, and all gravity is that the higher the gravity the higher the more sales the product is actually doing. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the product is good, it just means that they’re doing well in sales and the sales funnel is probably pretty decent.
Once you have decided on a product to promote, you would just click on promote button. Then there is something called a hop link that will pop up and all you have to do is promote this hop link.
Now how it works is if somebody sees this hop link and clicks on it, what happens is usually a lot of these products will have a video and then at the bottom and maybe after five or ten minutes when the video is done there will be a Buy button and when somebody buys by clicking that Buy button then you make a sale and you make a commission.
Now depending on the product, every single product will give a different amount of commission to you, sometimes it’s 50 percent, sometimes 60 percent and sometimes more. It depends on the product you choose to promote.
It’s as simple as that… That’s all Clickbank is. That’s all affiliate marketing is.
Now I’m going to tell you something that will really shock you and this is the reason why a lot of people aren’t making any money on a Clickbank.
I’m going to change this…
Why people don’t make money with Clickbank and/or Affiliate Marketing because it’s basically the same thing. If you’re marketing Clickbank products you are basically doing affiliate marketing. That’s all it is.
So this is what people do right:
First of all, you generate traffic. Traffic can be generated from lots of different methods. You can use SEO, you can do blogging, you can do YouTube videos, you can use social media.
You can use your Facebook account for example to promote different articles or different stories with different links. You can join groups and do banner advertising. You can do solo ads. You can do pay-per-click marketing like Google Adwords, Bing.
I mean there’s so there’s so many ways to generate traffic on social media. Instagram, Snapchat, etc.
These are lots of different strategies.
Now this is the problem. This is what people do…
They send all their traffic, usually directly to the offer and people being a little bit smarter these days, use a landing page which is fine, but then they send them straight to the clickbank offer. In this case right now, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the clickbank offer.
So go ahead and build that landing page, or squeeze page so that you’re collecting the emails at this point. You’re collecting them in your what is called an autoresponder. That’s a piece of software that collects email addresses and you can follow up with people on a regular basis.
You are basically building your email database which is great. That’s what you want to do, but then people make the mistake of sending their their traffic leads directly to their Clickbank offer or their affiliate link. Whatever it is, it doesn’t matter… Clickbank, JVzoo, WarriorPlus, etc.
This is the reason why people aren’t making any money online okay.
It’s because everyone is doing this!
There millions of internet marketers online doing this exact thing that you are reading about right here. This is why people aren’t making money on Clickbank.
The way that you might want to do it instead is this:
It’s fine if you want to send traffic directly to your landing page, collect their email address and then you can send them to the Clickbank offer, but realize that most people aren’t going buy the Clickbank offer out right.
This is because people are seeing so many promotions online day in and day out that what will happen is that they get desensitized and when you get desensitized you basically just don’t buy anything. So if you send the right amount of traffic you might generate a few sales here and there but you’ll never get big results because people just don’t buy that way.
Some marketers get people onto their autoresponder and let’s say people don’t buy their stuff straight away, they will email them automatically for the next few days. This is in fact what most people will do. They will send them directly back to their affiliate link. That’s it… that’s all they do so as soon as someone lands on the landing page. They opt-in, they see the offer and then they get an email from you every single day sending them back to the same clickbank offer. Can you imagine that if you’re getting emails every day and it’s sending you back to this exact page, do you think you’d buy? Definitely not, right? Because you’re seeing the same crap over and over and over again. Just because somebody sees this more often doesn’t mean that they’re going to buy it.
That makes sense right? I mean, this is pretty obvious stuff!
But unfortunately this is not very obvious to most people. They just keep slamming that list and so what happens is this.
Let’s just say you’ve got a list now of collected emails which are leads (emails = leads). Let’s say you have 1000 leads. Now if you’re emailing these 1000 leads every single day but you’re sending them back to the exact sales page what do you think is going to happen? People will quickly stop opening your emails. You will drop from 60% to perhaps only 1% or 2%.
Imagine this… You’ve got a thousand leads that you have spent good money on a lot of time on and only two percent of them actually open up your emails. That means that only twenty people are actually opening your emails, and out of those twenty people the conversion rate is actually one percent. That’s one-fifth of a human being will actually buy your stuff if you have a thousand email subscribers! Yikes!
Now there are a lot of things that are going on here.
First of all, your open rate should not be that low. Your open rate needs to be at least 15 to 20 percent or more. Now you can get there by adding lots of value. So instead of sending people directly to an offer over and over and over again, what you want to do is broadcast emails with value.
That’s it! That’s the secret sauce!
Value means you teach them something valuable about weight loss (if that’s what your marketing. If your marketing internet marketing then you teach them about internet marketing). You email your list to give them a lot of value.
The easiest way to do that is to create videos. It could be your face, it could be a PowerPoint, it could be a big notepad where you’re making notes, it doesn’t really matter. But value is the way you’re going to get, first of all your open rates up. Open rates that’s 20% or more which means more people opening your emails and this then also increase your sales closing rate to between I would say again five to five to fifteen percent.
So I hope that this kind of explains a little bit about how to actually make money through affiliate marketing through Clickbank and through any sort of “selling products on the internet”.
Now you might be asking yourself, “Well Steven, where did you learn this stuff?”
Well the thing is I’ve been online for a long time and for a long time I failed miserably. Only for the last year did I see some great results and that whas only received by getting and implementing some high quality training.
So stop listening to fakers and get your hands dirty. Your future is waiting!
