With new Clkbank Products being released daily, even if you are having success with your current campaign it is always worth checking out the clkbank marketplace to see what new products are being launched. If you have your own webpage then it is not that difficult to either replace your product with the new item or even run a new campaign alongside the existing one.
By monitoring the sales figures and clickthru rates you can quickly establish whether running the two products side by side is efficient or consider dropping one of the products in favour of the more popular one.

There are a wide selection of products available in the Clickbank marketplace and more than a few methods you can utilize to promote them. Some of the platforms you might want to consider to promote Clickbank products include the following: niche websites, blogs, forum and message board signature lines, Squidoo lenses, and article marketing (be sure to read the fine print with article marketing websites so that you are familiar with their policies on product promotion).
If you have had a good idea and have managed to create your own e-book then Clickbank is a great place for getting your product out to the online masses.
By promoting your product in the Clickbank Marketplace you will have a potential salesforce of thousands
to possibly promote your product and even if you are only retaining a smaller percentage of the sales price this is still going to be much more than you would have been able to achieve on your own.
The other main advantage is Clickbank will handle all the collection of payments and the delivery of your product leaving you free to collect your commissions or start working on additional products to create.

If you are looking for a way to create your own on-line business then one of the simplest methods is to become a Clickbank/Clkbank affiliate. It’s a great way to earn money online and it’s very easy to get started.
Signing up for an account at Clickbank is a simple, fast process and it’s absolutely free. Once you have a membership, you can start promoting products and earning commissions.
In the most basic of terms, affiliate marketing with Clickbank works like this: You drive web traffic to a publisher’s sales page. When people purchase the product to which you directed them, you’ll receive a commission payment. You are credited for a commission by sending traffic to a specialized version of the sales page, known in Clickbank parlance as a hoplink. Your hoplink is unique to your account, guaranteeing that you’ll receive all payments due to you.
There are some definite advantages to playing the affiliate role on Clickbank. You don’t need to worry about product creation, customer service, product delivery or the setting up of a sales page. The only thing you need to do to make money as an affiliate is to direct web traffic to the publisher’s sales page. You can make a great deal of money this way. While some products offer relatively small commissions (under £ $10), others may pay out more than $100 per sale. If you find a converting product and are able to send a healthy flow of traffic to the sales page, you can post significant earnings.
Many Clickbank affiliates make a full-time living with their efforts and some may earn well into six figures per year so it is definitely a business worth looking into..
So where is it best to advertise your clickbank product ?
We have already touched on setting up your own blog or webpage and sending traffic to your site using
article writing. Another excellent and free method is to set up your own webpage or lens with Squidoo.
Squidoo offers an excellent opportunity to promote your clickbank product without having to purchase an
additional domain name. You can write about your product and then link this back to your webpage so that
interested customers can then make a purchase.
Squidoo has alot of very different lenses covering various subjects but by filling your webpage with
interesting and unique content you will find that this will attract readers which will be a new source of
traffic to you own clkbank website.
What are the best selling clkbank products?
Well obviously this changes week by week but one of the websites which is very useful for this information is cb-analytics.
This lists all the top products and also adds products as they are released so this can work very well if you are looking to promote a product that is new and therefore has less competition.
You can also use Clickbanks own Marketplace where you can search via various methods such as popularity or high gravity in your chosen section to see what products are available.
Personally I feel that it really comes down to your own judgement about what product will work best for you but I would suggest looking at the products landing page and sales material. By combining this with the gravity and current data that you can obtain from the above sources then this will give you the valuable information you need. But remember with literally thousands of products available if your initial product is not working then their is nothing to stop you changing and promoting another product.
This is one of the great advantages about using Clickbank.
There are plenty of low cost and even free methods you can use to promote your Clickbank products. The problem with these methods is they can take some time before you start to see any results. One of the methods which can obtain almost instant results is by using Google Adwords. AdWords are the small ads that you see in the right column of the page when you search via Google. The great thing about these ads is that you only pay when people click on your ads (pay per click or ppc). You create your own ads using keywords that are relevant to the customers you are trying to attract, Google will calculate an estimated average price that you will have to pay for each keyword to give you an idea but you can then set a daily budget limit so that this amount is never exceeded.
Adwords work great with Clickbank as you can link directly to an affiliate website meaning you do not have to create your own site.Obviously as you are paying for your traffic you need to be very selective about which products you are prepared to promote. You need to make sure that the commision payable for the clickank product is more than enough to cover your advertising budget and still make a reasonable profit for yourself and that the product has a reasonable low rate of refunds.
But by getting the right ad with the right keywords you will find that in a very short period of time the traffic to your website will increase and with the right product the sales will follow.
It’s often difficult to know where to begin when it comes to marketing your first Clickbank product. Obviously you want to keep your expenditure to a minimum so it is well worth considering one of the free blogs that are available as a starting point.
By setting up your own blog on a subject that is linked to your Clickbank product and by providing information and advice that is going to genuinely help people, it should not be too long before you have a steady following and hopefully that following will convert into sales of your Clickbank product.
When choosing your clickbank product, have a look to see what resources the affiliate is offering in helping you to promote their product. Some publishers just offer a sales page but many more are now offering a whole host of resources to help you to drive traffic to your website or blog and once your potential customer has arrived at your webpage, a professional looking banner can help in securing that sale.
Banners can come in many forms and sizes so it is worth occasionally changing the banner to perhaps a different size or with a different graphic, but it can also pay to change the siting of the said banner. By then monitoring the results you can then narrow downe which size and siting is the most effective and run with this on all future promotions.
Another great way of marketing your clickbank product is by writing a review on the item you are promoting but to then to split this article into two parts. By publishing the first part of your review on an article directory you can then advise the reader that if they would like more information they can follow the link to your webpage where you give them part 2 of the article as promised but then the all important link to your sales page where the item can be purchased.
There are a number of article directories around but the main ones I would recommend are ezinearticles, goarticles and isnare. Have a read of the most popular articles to get a feel of what these successful authors are writing about and then use this to come up with your own ideas to promote your product.
