Amateur marketers are trying to promote ClickBank products the easy way. The easy way is usually the wrong way. Unless you are an experienced and successful blogger who thinks he does something the easy way but this still is too complicated for a newbie to grasp. So, believe me, don’t even think to go the easy way, it won’t work.

By not understanding marketing strategies it can be very harmful as you can end up wasting lots and lots of time and money.
Many marketers are repeating this over and over again, when you are promoting a product on the internet, it is very important to start building an email list at the same time.
A list can be built in just about any niche that you choose and you can do anything that you want with that list later an such as promoting products to it.
When building a list, you really have to nurture it, taking real care of it. It’s a living organism. I’m not kidding here. Build a relationship with it and your list will respond to you at best possible way. By making you money of course. More you work on it more money you make. Very easy 🙂 .
You basically use your list as a traffic source to generate more sales.
Therefore if you would like to promote ClickBank products then I would strongly recommend that you create an email list.
To Promote ClickBank Products & Start Creating An Email List You Need A Few Tools
- A Capture or Lead page
- An Email Autoresponder
Capture or A Lead Page
Some people also refer to it as a Landing page. Your lead page website is a single page website which you will send people to for your product.
If you happened to promote ClickBank products on the internet, of course, you need a website.
You don’t need to set up a large website with hundreds of pages. Yo need only one page with content on it. To attract people to your product that is just enough.
To really create your lead page you have a few options:
AWeber offers you a 30-day free trial
Sendlane offers you a 30-day free trial
GetResponse offers you a 30 day free trial
When creating your lead pages you can follow the tutorials within each of the platforms. It’s very easy to follow.
How To Add Content To Your Lead Page
What kind of content do you want to write?
Using the Affiliate Marketing example and looking at the results that I’ve got from Google and the products I have found on ClickBank, now I can see pieces of content from there and transfer it to my own lead page.
I have selected the product called Afilorama.
The moment I clicked on the product I was immediately taken to the sales page. View the sales page HERE.
I will then take certain key phrases and testimonials that I like and just include them on my page.
Then I will use the content from this lead page, a bit of it form the sales page and then I will create my own unique lead page content.
The most important tip I can give you is when you are promoting ClickBank offers, do not even try to use the tools provided by the vendor.
What you really want is to use your own unique content so you can stand out from everyone else.
Just model after what you see on the sales page. For example, you can use some of the pitch from their sales page. REMEMBER, their pitch is working. The gravity in range 50-100 is ideal. But, it’s not written in the stone. You can use products from all ranges of gravity. The one I mentioned has a gravity of 39.59. The product is very, very popular. So, it is OK to promote ClickBank products of wide ranges of gravities.
Create Email Newsletter
What do you do with the email addresses that you are collecting? Well, for starters you need to email to those who provided you with their email address.
It’s called building a relationship with the list
You may be thinking that this hard to make money emailing people but believe me, it is the most effective form of internet marketing.
When you build a relationship with your email subscribers it creates trust and they will be more inclined to buy products from you.
Don’t worry about it, keep building the list and the list will be your ATM machine for a time to come.
Have in mind that you are not scamming your subscribers. You are really helping them with a variety of solutions you provide them via emails.
Using Done For You Swipes To Promote ClickBank Products
The vendors of the ClickBank products usually provide email swipes for you to use.
However, you really want to be careful about using those. Imagine all the affiliates using the very same swipes. Google, Yahoo or any other big email company have a way for those swipes to end up in the spam inbox.
You really have to stand out by creating unique content. Again, model after swipes. They are usually on the right track. Don’t copy, model after.
How To Get People To Your Website
Now that you have created you Lead Page and your Autoresponder let’s start working on getting people to your website. What is your website without the people reading it? Nothing, right?
This is, however, the hardest part for most marketers and it is all about patience and hard work really.
There are two main methods to promote ClickBank products – the free way and of course the paid way.
Paying for people to come to your website is called paid traffic or paid advertising.
There are many places that you can go to for paid traffic.
Google Ads, Bing Ads, Facebook Ads are some of the most popular ones out there.
In my opinion, to master traffic sources, the best way to drive traffic to your website is of course free traffic.
So if you decide to use free methods then you must understand that doing so takes a lot of time. With paid methods, you will invest money to achieve wanted result.
On the other hand, a free method is the slow way of driving traffic. However, once you start getting the real traffic you can’t stop it even if you want it.
So it is time-consuming, but after you get it, it’s yours forever. Paid however is instant and you always have to go back to pay for more traffic.
Free methods that you can try include:
- Posting in Facebook Groups
- Google SEO with blog posts
- Forum Posting
- Pinterest Marketing
I am not going to go in details about any of those, except of course Pinterest Marketing. My favorite one.
Pinterest is really my favorite way of driving traffic to my website. It works best if you have a blog though.
Most people do not realize that Pinterest is a search engine and people go there to look for solutions to their problems.
To start with your own Pinterest account you need to create a Pinterest Business account. With a business account, you will be able to check on how your pins are performing and what is working and what is not working.
Then you have to Apply for Rich Pins. When you apply for rich pins it allows your pins to show up more in the Pinterest search engines thereby driving more traffic to your website.
Create 10 to 15 boards related to your niche. Make sure your boards are named after the keywords that people will search for.
Start following people related to your niche. They will follow back. Some niches are better for follow backs than the other. Nevertheless, you need to put in the work to make it happen.
Search within Pinterest for group boards related to your niche and request an invite to join the board.
I know it could be overwhelming to keep track of all the pinning, scheduling for pins, following. In order to automate the entire process, I recommend the scheduler BoardCommander. One of the best tools of that kind on the market.
At The End
Once you have everything set up, you are on the right track for a success.
Work hard and be patient. This is the best possible advice I can give you at the end.
