3 Ways To Make Money With Clickbank
Offering Clickbank products from your own website is probably the most obvious method. Some people own large authority sites that cover a range of topics allowing them to offer several Clickbank products. Others will focus on promoting 1 or 2 products and build a site around those particular products.
Another method for promoting Clickbank products through your website is by building a mailing list. If visitors like your site and they are willing to subscribe to a free newsletter, you have opportunities to “pitch” products that may offer a solution to a common concerns people may have within that niche.
Just be sure not to “sell” in every email you send or you will lose subscribers as fast as you gain them.
Some people have had some success selling Clickbank products through free ad sites. You need to be cautious when doing this though. Some of these methods can be seen as spammy and you could get banned from the site.
An internet marketing colleague of mine found some success promoting Clickbank products on Craigslist. Here’s how he did it.
He posted a simple ad in the “general labor” section for help wanted. He did not post a link to the product within that ad. He asked people to reply with any questions they had. He would then answer their questions and follow up with another question or two.
By doing this, he built a bit of trust and rapport with the people who responded to his ad which he then went on to recommend an appropriate product. In his first week he earned $100 in commissions. That’s not a ton of money by any means, but this is one ad in one city. You could certainly scale this up to many markets.
Have you ever visited a website and seen a little box pop-up in the middle of your screen promoting a product? Those things can be selling machines and they’re not very hard to create. I found a WordPress plug in that makes it easy.
It’s not a free plug in. It costs $14.95 but 1 sale will more than pay for it in most cases. You can see a couple different ways that this plug in can be used along with a video that demonstrates how the inventor of the plug in generates a lot of sales without a website.
