Do you want to make money online? If so, Clickbank is probably the answer you're looking for. Clickbank is an online platform where people sell information products and create affiliate programs for their products. The platform is easy to use and makes setting up your account easy. The process is also straight forward: create an information product, create a sales letter for it, set up an affiliate program, make money. If creating your own product sounds a bit intimidating, don't worry, you can still make plenty of money as an affiliate for other people's products. Let's go over the seven easiest ways you can use Clickbank to make money.
Make Money as an Affiliate
If you're going to be an affiliate of a Clickbank product and sell it in order to get commissions you're going to have to get the offer in front of people who'd like to purchase it. Twitter can be a great way to do so if you have plenty of followers. Just make sure the product you are promoting matches your Twitter follower's interests and that you don't spam them with it over and over again.
You can also advertise the product you're promoting using a blog. If you already have one make sure the product is of interest to your readers. If you need to create a blog from scratch you should include content on it that is both useful and related to your product. For example, a blog on how to house train a dog could then provide an affiliate link to a Clickbank product about how to teach a dog tricks.
Facebook can be a great place to get your affiliate offer in front of a lot of people. The trick here is not to use the FaceBook ad system to promote the product directly but rather to link people to a fan page you create either about the product or about a related topic. The more subtle you are about this the better.
This one is a bit tricky as many forums don't allow advertising on them. However in some cases you can do this and it can pay off if you're posting on a forum that is related to the product you're trying to sell.
Make Money as a Product Creator
Using Your Knowledge
Creating a product is much easier if you make it about something that you already know about. For example, if you know how to play the guitar you could make a product that teaches people to play the guitar. Just remember that your product should be something that is in demand and has a built in audience.
Maybe you've spotted the need for a certain information product but there aren't any already on Clickbank. This could be a golden opportunity for you. Thoroughly research your topic and create your information product based on what you learn. If the product is something that solves a specific problem for people it will likely be in demand.
If you know of a topic that would make a great information product but don't have the ability to make it yourself or if you just don't want to you can always outsource it to a professional writer. The length of your product and how much research will need to be done will determine how much it will cost but in many cases you can get it done for only a few hundred dollars, some times less. This is a great option if you don't have particularly great writing skills of your own and would like to leave it in the hands of the professionals.
