2017 click bank guide surf strength

[Updated : 30/11/2017] .

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 in that time.

There was a intermittent or occasional sale now and then from old promo codes put on my websites, but no big $$ or  anything or any spectacular income from those sales.

Then one day I decided to link to a click-bank  promo code for  a e-book, directly related to one of the niches in one of my established blogs  and then I suddenly saw my sales jump ( like 2 to 3 ebooks 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. However my earnings are peanuts compared to some super affiliates like Rosalind Gardner.

All it took me was 2 minutes to add that link to that article. I was not a beginner in internet marketing, but surely a beginner in affiliate or clickbank marketing and so was happy to see these conversions.

I was surprised and excited that just by  promoting  the correct “clickbank product” in the correct niche, I  started to earn money regularly without much effort at all. Off course, I do have to tell you that  the blog where the link was , was a good blog with genuine content that attracted a lot of unique users  to that niche. At 700 to 900 unique visits a day  on that blog, I was doing pretty well selling  2 to 3 books a month  without much effort and i didn’t even use facebook or social media to promote  this clickbank product.

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 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 below.

Its not a step by step guide to clikbank, but has enough information for you to get started on the right foot and   to get some sales going.

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 increased much more since then to now in 2017

I  promote click-bank  on several of my websites  including  this blog n and many others with several products on sale to make this kind of earnings.  I would suggest also getting a 2nd account  to track your sales better and compare data.

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 Affilorama – Internet and affiliate marketing course is pretty good

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.

How to choose a Click bank affiliate product!

2017 clickbank course make money


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 2017 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 landing page is not good enough for the product .

Making money with Clickbank and Facebook  Linked in and twitter

If you can make a good landing page then you can also convert sales for clickbank safely from traffic from facebook, twitter, linked in and other social media  accounts

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.

Another good tip that has doubled my income in one of my blogs is free ebook giveaways. People love free stuff and if you are willing to put the time to create something of value to them for free, it is likely they will be grateful and give you a sale knowingly or unknowingly when they click on your affiliate link in that free ebook giveaway.

Steven Hall has  got a good clickbank product to make this free giveaway method seamless for you, with your website.

I would also recommend Rosalind Gardner  who is a super affiliate and has helped many into  their online affiliate marketing careers, she has two guides that she sells , one is called the “Affiliate Blogger Pro” and she has also got an indepth  affiliate guide called – “Super Affiliate: How I Made $436,797 In One Year which covers how to start Your Own Home-based Affiliate Marketing Business.

These guides will surely teach  you how to go about and start earning  with affiliate marketing or  increase your existing blog income

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.

create a hoplink or aff link from marketplace


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 page name 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 !!

    At first I dont really trust Click bank as it is an affiliate product, I thought it is just the same as other affiliate program. But this Click bank is different. I can find different sorts of niche here. I never thought of getting 2nd acc to track my sales. Such a good idea. Will try it out soon. Thanks mate!

    Had a click bank account for quite some time. Abandoned it for quite some time too.. Don’t really know if it works as everyone said. But since I came across your article, I’m going to try some tips and tricks you wrote above, hoping it will work.

  4. saraboddington says:

    I agreed with your article. I wrote myself good articles on click bank and earn something good in return. All you have to do is to write real good articles and promote it in an exactly correct niche. I’ve heard about some tips and tricks to gain more money with click banks but i’m not really sure if it works. I’ve tried it once and it doesn’t work that much for me. Maybe I’m doing it wrong.

    there are lots of website, videos, training courses telling you how this click bank works and they will tell you the tips and trick & such. To me all those are nonsense. Some of their tips don’t make sense, and some don’t work. I’ve tried the tips from your article and i started to earn some extra money, not that much but it increases than I used to earn before. Thanks for the useful tips, gonna recommend your tips to my friends.

    I’m clear about click bank and how it works but I never heard of Click bank University before. Wanted to give it a try but not sure if it worth the time. Some people said don’t buy it as it is not worth it but how far is that true? I learned that it has locked module which I don’t think it is necessary to do that.
