How ClickBank Can Benefit Your Affiliate Marketing Business
It is to your benefit, if you have an affiliate marketing business, to have several quality products to offer your visitors. Useful information is one thing you can never have enough of especially if you are making money selling it.
ClickBank provides you with useful information in the form of instantly downloadable ebooks and similar products. ClickBank is the largest digital information provider. Because of the great range of good quality products with generous commissions that are available on the ClickBank site, it is an excellent way for you to make money as an affiliate marketer
As ClickBank literally has thousands of products covering various categories you will never run out of something to sell. Plus the real benefit of selling digital information is that there are no delivery fees and the products are downloadable immediately after payment is made.
The provider of the product which is known as the ClickBank Vendor will determine the commissions you can earn and it is quite common for most of them to provide commissions of between 50 and 75% on every sale you make.
You should be aware of a couple of ways of selling ClickBank products. Bear in mind that most of your customers will not make a purchase on the first visit to the ClickBank affiliate sales page.
Because of this the most successful ClickBank affiliates follow up with their prospects over a period of time before they ever report making a sale. Those people who do the best with ClickBank are the ones that already have a website of their own or who are willing to create one.
To follow up with their prospects they set up an auto-responder with messages that provide more information on the theme they are promoting. The purpose of your autoresponder is to enable you to capture your prospects name and e-mail address for future follow up.
Now that you know that most people do not purchase on the first visit and may take as many as five or even 10 exposures before they purchase, you will want to send your prospects information over a period of time.
Clickbank products are great to add to your website or blog as additional content and as products to sell. This means that you are not building your whole marketing campaign around one specific product, but rather offering several related products and services to your visitor.
You will want to pay attention to the product’s “gravity” when selecting a ClickBank product on the Clickbank Marketplace. Product gravity is just a figure that shows how popular a product is, i.e. how well it sells. A product with a high figure, anything over 70, is a good seller and you can also be sure that a lot of people are selling it!
You need to decide then whether to sell low gravity products which attract less competition, but might be hard to sell or to sell high gravity products against a lot of competition, or whether to just head for the middle ground with a product of 40-70 gravity.
Provided you know your market well and are prepared to do some in-depth product research, you may be able to find a hidden gem of a low gravity product and make a killing with it!
As an affiliate, ClickBank is free to join and it only takes a couple minutes to get set up. Then you can go straight to the ClickBank Marketplace and get instant access to hundreds of good quality digital products and select a few to add to your affiliate marketing business website.
