[Updated : 04/01/2016] .
I am a clickbank member for some time now , actually for the past 3+ years now and did nothing much with my account for quite some time. It just lay idle. I did not make much money with click bank. There was a intermittent or occasional sale now and then from old promo codes put on my websites,but nothing big $$ or anything spectacular really from those sales.
Then one day I decided to input a click-bank promo code for a e-book directly related to one of the niche in one of my established blogs and then I suddenly saw my sales jump ( like 2 to 3 books being sold every month ) on a regular basis. Mind you the commission wasn’t great at about $3 to $4 per sale , however it was coming in on a regular basis by just taking 5 minutes to add that link in that article.
I was surprised and excited that just by promoting the correct “clickbank product” in the correct niche, I started to earn money rregularly without much effort , ( off course I have to tell you that the blog was a good blog with genuine content that attracted a lot of unique users to that niche , but at 700 to 900 unique visits a day I was doing pretty well selling 2 to 3 books a month without much effort.
All the time it took to create that article which sold most of the books was probably 20 minutes. Of-course it helped that the whole blog was quite popular and had a good content and so the article was easier to find on google search.
I did some research off course immediately to see how i could improve my “click bank sales” after noticing my spurt in sales initially , and I have detailed a few tips that might help you also improve your Click bank sales right below.
Browse CBGraph website ( the movers and shakers of click-bank)
This is one of the most important sections of the site since it’s the only way to sort out the listings before/after making a keyword search. A useful site like Cbgraph shows the Movers and Shakers on CB and is an excellent resource.
Clickbank can be a very lucrative affiliate program because the commissions ( Some are as high as 75%.) are incredibly high. The products are mostly digital products (eBooks, digital products, etc.), there are no distribution costs, so that’s one reason Click-bank can afford to offer such a large share or commission to their affiliates.
Here is a 2014 screenshot of my most recent earnings from clickbank only.
Its now much better in 2016
I promote click-bank on several of my websites including gadgetaustralia.com and http://www.digitalfrog.com.au and many others with several products on sale to make this kind of earnings. Maybe getting a 2nd account to track your sales better is also a good idea.
Below you can watch a video by nathanniel who has just started on this scene , judging from his screen shots of earnings he is not earning as much as me for now , but still good for a starter and his methods to select a affiliate product is good which are shown in the video.
By the way to get that kind of sales and $$ you will also need to spend some money on SEO , back linking and advertising. But if you really want a jump start with affiliate marketing then this course from clickbank is pretty good ( IM Course website – http://clickbank-course.com/)
Tips and tricks to Increase click bank products sales
The complexities of the huge size of Click Bank means there’s a lot of junk/worthless material on the site as well as good material to promote. The time taken to sift through products to promote, and choose the correct products will eventually make you selling efforts a winner.
The pic below with arrows shows the most relevant stuff that you need to know when you are choosing your affiliate product to promote . I just chose a random affiliate today , that I am testing right now and you can see I just got two hops on this offer already.
The red arrows point to relevant bits , with explanations below.
This particular product pays $25.45 per sale on average. Now, it’s important to note that the amount you earn per sale may not match that number exactly due to upsells, sales tax, chargebacks, etc. However, this will give you an idea of what you can earn.
Check out the Stats information at the bottom of the result. This provides more details about what you can earn.
Notice the Initial $/sale stat is much lower than the average $/sale. This particular vendor offers several products, which is why the initial sale stat and average sale prices differ.
Average %/sale means the average commission for this product is 60% per sale.
The Avg Rebill Total of $, indicates this is a recurring billing product and that’s the average amount the affiliate earns. So not only can you earn for one sale, but you will also earn for any customer re-bills. This is how your income can really add up over time. There is no re-bill on this product
Popularity ( this is in the product search field when you are searching for a product to promote)
This should mean a measure of sales. I check the top 10 products in the category, sort them by referred sales (60%+ is best/$30+ earned per sale)
What does ClickBank Gravity mean?
The meaning does not tell you how much money the product has made or what percentage it converts at. Gravity only counts the first sale each affiliate makes. However, if it has a high gravity it’s probably because people are having good success with it.
How to find high converting, high paying items with low return rates
A high commission product , recurring payments, and a high gravity is what you want to look for. Be sure to watch out for that gravity! I found more that one product with HUGE commissions and rebills, but a super low gravity.
Saying that , things are changing and you can now find low gravity products with low competition that you can make lots of money on , if you got a relevant niche website on that topic .
The key for 2016 is just make sure if you are using a landing page that is is super built to convert that product , or then make a pre -landing page if the affiliate a got a good landing page for the product .
If you can be bothered about landing pages just make a really good helpful article with your click bank link sprinkled in the article with a call to action included in it.
Obtaining Your Affiliate Link (Hoplink)
Once you decide on a product you want to promote. CHeck to make sure you are logged into clickbank then, click the green Promote button alongside the product listing.
You will be presented with two small columns , 1st column your id is already input ( if you are logged into the clickbank website) and second column ( tracking id ) just input some text you can remember ( like the pagename where you will put this created code on ). This will help you know that that page is generating sales, you can create multiple tracking ids to track sales from different pages to know where the sales is being generated from .
Now that you are ready to put his click-bank affiliate code in relevant pages on your website and promote the product and start earning commissions !!
