First of all you will need to sign up for a Clickbank account to be able to do this.
Once you have signed up come back to this page to continue
The Clickbank Marketplace has over 10,000 digital products listed.
First you must choose a category within the Clickbank Marketplace. They have several different categories as there are so many digital products available. Choose a category that interests you.
You will notice a few things listed underneath each product which are going to be of some interest to you. You will see a few things like sale and gravity as well as percentage of sale. I am going to explain each of them to you
$/sale: This is how much the total sale price is of the digital product that is being offered.
Future $: This will be zero on most products and only refers to digital products that have a recurring income. There are a few internet marketing courses that use this option as they might have ongoing training so they charge a monthly membership, but generally this will be zero.
Total $/sale: This is the sale price of the digital product plus the recurring income.
%/sale: This is the % of the sale that you will earn from each digital product sale.
%refd: This is the total of sales reffered by Affiliates. You will find 10% may come from organic searches to the original page and therefore skip affiliates.
grav: This is how popular a digital product is. The higher the number the more popular, any product over 150 is very popular with the affiliates and generally will have a lot of competition out there for a sale.
So which products are the best to choose?
I would suggest keeping away from all of the money making products at Clickbank and I will explain why.
Most people looking for money making products have actually already purchased other money making products online before. Most of them will know about Clickbank by this stage and have signed up for an account, so when you market a money making digital product they click on the link, quickly realise it is a Clickbank product and wipe out your hoplink and put their own link in which generates them with a sale. It happens all the time.
If you stick to products like Solar Power Energy (which by the way has a massive market online right now) you can make money out of people who have absolutely no understanding of Internet Marketing in gerneral so they wont even understand what Clickbank is or simply just wont care. They are there for a energy saving product and that is all they care about.
A few other good niches are Dating, Weight Loss and DIY guides.
First of all when you are choosing a product, I want you to go to the sales page, make sure that there are no little links for OPT INS for mailing lists. The reason why you want to make sure of this is that there have been stories of publishers out there right now with Clickbank who are stealing affiliate sales by setting up mailing lists. Customers are signing up with the mailing lists and then the publishers are sending out emails with hoplinks with their own affiliate link within, which is taking sales from affiliates. Usually affiliate links are stored in your Cookies (within Internet Explorer, Firefox etc) for 30, sometimes 60 days. There are ways around this however such as telling people to clear their cookies before making a purchase for an added bonus etc. If you ask Clickbank about it they seem to have no idea it is going on or they simply don’t want to know about it. I haven’t worked out which one it is yet. Don’t let it put you off earning with Clickbank though as the company is an excellent source of income for internet marketers worldwide. It is just a few bad eggs making it not as honest as it should be. As long as you do those checks I have just told you about though you will be fine.
