Thanks for the informative post. I certainly agree that there are many poor quality products on Clickbank but there is certainly an opportunity to make money through Clickbank. The trick as you point out is to sort the good from the bad. Personally I will not even consider a product with a gravity lower than 10 but prefer a gravity above 50. Like everything we do it is about doing good research first.
Interest in the niche. Passion/huge interest is a bonus. People really underestimate this point. You’ll be eating, drinking and breathing this product/niche for weeks, possibly months and years to come if it's successful and you start focusing on growing it. Having an interest in it makes things so much easier and helps you keep going when things get tough.
Once you’ve decided what kind of sessions you’ll be running, the next step is to decide the length of your program. One mistake to avoid is simply charging by the lesson. While this may seem flexible and convenient for the client, it almost always interferes with the results. When someone pays in advance for 6 or 12 sessions, they’re far more likely to attend them, and far more likely to see a difference. Otherwise, the casual client may drop into the occasional session, fail to see progress, and assume you’re to blame!
If you have ever visited document sharing websites such as Script Mafia, you must have seen how people offer you free downloads and others queue up with alternative download mirrors. Every time someone downloads using your link from file sharing websites such as Ziddu, Uploading and ShareCash.org (it claims to pay average $0.60 per download), you get paid.

people who visited the site but did not opt in > you can use negative audiences for your ads with facebook ads, you just take visitors to the site and substract the people that visited the thank you page. For people who did not purchase, you simply can’t with affiliate marketing unless the vendor adds a conversion pixel of yours on their thank you page.
17. Amazon – Have you heard of FBA? It stands for “Fulfilled by Amazon” and it’s getting pretty popular. Basically, you buy products (in bulk is best) and ship them to Amazon for them to store. When your products sell, Amazon packs them up, ships them out and sends you the money (after taking their cut). There are people making a full-time living from FBA, while others just do it for some extra money. 

I think Clickbank is going to be around for a while. Digital information products, membership sites, PDF guides and other information that can be bought and sold on the internet is only going to grow. I give CB a hard time because I work in the internet marketing industry so I see horribly hyped and misleading products all the time, but there were a few goodies I found in my research for this article. I'm not recommending you promote these, but I just thought that they looked like high-value products for the right niche audience.
The basic strategy is this: Post interesting content consistently with relevant hashtags. Use a service like Hashtagify for hashtag ideas. Follow users in your niche and engage with their posts. I also know a couple of people who grew their Instagram accounts quickly solely depending on shoutouts from influencers. You can use a service like ShoutCart for that or contact influencers directly (most of them list their email addresses in their bios).
This is all you need to get started. In my early years i didnt know how to do much online except Yahoo Search Marketing (extinct now, but used to be Overture and "GoTo". I joined WarriorForum out of the reluctance of people telling Einstein here (myself) how to run my own business. Now my pride is diminished, and i learn things all the time here every week. Even from newbies.
Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.

Hey Arthur, glad you like the site! I don’t think bloggers would be against giving free stuff instead of asking money for it. Squeeze pages work fine. But I’d still recommend you build your own site and own platform, its just better in the long run. The way you do it is you create a free post (like this one) with free downloads inside then drive traffic to it. Everyone is happy to link to free info then you can retarget people without too much trouble.
Google's getting strict in which, once they get to your site, they're check your whole funnel because they don't want you to promote shitty authors because it makes them look bad, because it gives users a bad experience for using Google, but in general I haven't found Google to go as far as go all the way to checkout after they buy a product it's very rare, so you could just send them directly to the ClickBank product, plus, they converted and if they don't buy, you have their email address, because they bought the tripwire offer for you and not all of them will buy the other offer.
This is the best course on how to make money on CB I've seen so far. It takes you from the most basic things that you need to know to the best ways to really make money from CB. Kc Tan knows his stuff really well because he practices what he teaches and gives us real examples. I really like this course and will definitely recommend it to anyone who wanted to start making real money from CB affiliate program. 5 stars!" – Frederic Talis
A popup window will appear, where you will have to enter your Account Nick Name Or Username. Enter on “Create” button and on the next page you will get your affiliate code. You need to promote that code in order to earn commission. This code is only for the specific product and whenever someone use this code to buy the product, you get your commission.
I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your site. It appears as if some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. I appreciate it. 

I am absolutely new to the whole online marketing thing. I visited CB in 2012, then, it appeared overwhelming so I put it on the back burner. A week ago I revisited CB and ran two campaigns without a website nor blog . I went to Fiverr and had traffic directed to my CB ad. At this point, I’m just waiting to see if anything converts. I jumped in without knowing too much of what I was doing… I needed to take some type of action.
I almost burst out laughing recently when I told someone I mostly work 4 day weeks (as I love 3 day weekends). They told me that’s OK as long as you’re doing 10 and 12 hour days. You’ve got to be kidding! I’m sure I’ve done a 12 hour day sometime when I was engrossed in finishing up a project, but that would never be the norm. That’s too much work and I’d be totally useless the next day.
Just like to add 1 additional “CON” to the list of Pros and Cons of Clickbank. Their rule on paying out the commissions earned. You must have 5 sales all from different credit card accounts before they will pay you what you have earned. That flat out sucks!. Affiliates work hard to get even 1 sale and because of Clickbanks rule, lose that money over time if they cannot get another 4 sales, the commission keeps reducing steadily if 4 more sales are not forthcoming. Clickbank has got to change that rule, which many feel is illegal!. A sale, is a sale, and the commission must be paid out. Basically, Clickbank is “Ripping-Off” affiliate marketers.
Google's getting strict in which, once they get to your site, they're check your whole funnel because they don't want you to promote shitty authors because it makes them look bad, because it gives users a bad experience for using Google, but in general I haven't found Google to go as far as go all the way to checkout after they buy a product it's very rare, so you could just send them directly to the ClickBank product, plus, they converted and if they don't buy, you have their email address, because they bought the tripwire offer for you and not all of them will buy the other offer.
It’s not the sort of online money making opportunity that’s covered in glory, but everyone needs a set of eyes to make sure the numbers add up at the end of the year. Every business and most individuals need someone to help prepare tax returns, especially time or resource-strapped small business owners. The Income Tax School provides an array of training programs that'll certify you with tax prep in as little as 10 weeks, and once tax season rolls around you'll be able to charge an average of $229 per return as a freelance tax preparer with this side business idea, reports CNBC.
First, look at the products you already use. And remember, by promoting a product, you’re putting your own reputation on the line. Say your site, email campaign, or social media platform caters to new entrepreneurs – it’s a given that these entrepreneurs all need websites. Products related to webhosting or theme development are both great candidates and can be big earners, especially if you communicate your positive experiences. In comparison, trying to sell a weight-loss program on your business site would probably be a real turnoff for your audience, as it would be out of context.
On these websites, you'll have a store or profile presence that is usually the first thing the potential customer has in order to decide if they want to do business with you. If you're marketing your skills or knowledge, write a strong profile with references and even samples of your work. If you're selling a product or craft item, be sure to talk about your skill and how you learned the craft.
Whether it’s a sport, a craft, travel, coding, hula-hooping, haiku, whatever it is; you can trade your experience for cash. Any victory or victories you’ve had can be converted into a tutorial-based business. There’s money in motivating and mentoring people who— like you did at one point— want to get started but don’t know how. All you need is the right tools, the right techniques, and the willingness to get started.
All you need to get started is a USB microphone that you can find in virtually every electronics store or on Amazon. Remember, the vast majority of voice overs are not for a Hollywood movie. They're for testimonials, reviews, narration, and voice prompts on business phone systems. Voices.com and VoiceBunny.com are two of the big players in this space to look into.
It’s why our customers, who are just normal people, have made upwards of six figures in just a month while launching their courses. It’s why the best content marketers (like Seth Godin, Marie Forleo, Noah Kagan) are selling courses. It’s why there was $2.51 billion invested in educational-technology companies during the first half of 2015 (according to InsideHigherEd). 
You must be at least 21 years old, have at least one year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. (three years if you’re under 23 years old), have a valid driver’s license and pass a background check. Also, your car must be a four-door, seat at least four passengers (excluding the driver), be registered in-state and be covered by in-state insurance.
While you play, the app works in the background and transfers small sums from your checking account into a high-yield Blast savings account based on “triggers” you set — things like the number of opponents you defeat or enemy bases you destroy. You can earn extra cash by completing “missions” that allow you to test new games or take familiar games to the next level.

In the course bio for a lifestyle course on Gratitude, Passion and Success, she says, “The journey is going to be fun (that is the ONLY way that I know to do things) and filled with real life solutions and tools. And even better, we will be accountable to each other! We are going to look in the rear view mirror and be amazed at how far we have come!”

If you have experience with marketing, SEO, or a knack for getting people excited about the products and services you use on a regular basis, think about refining your skills and putting them to work making money online as a small business marketing consultant in your region—especially if you can become a local SEO expert and can help local clients rank higher in their search results.


Prior to that group, they had an online community for teachers looking for lesson plans. That probably sounds pretty random, but it's crazy the type of communities you can build and rally people around. If it's something that you're passionate about yourself and you want to connect with others that have that same passion, then an online community is something you should definitely consider.
The drawback is that it’s slow at first, it could take 2-3+ months to see your first sale if that is your main traffic source. It’s also tedious in the sense that it requires a lot of effort link building, especially if you’re trying to rank for highly competitive keywords. For an in-depth SEO blueprint, check out our how to rank in Google guide for beginners.
If you need to “make money quickly” then I don’t recommend starting any kind of business. Making money in business rarely happens fast, especially for newbies. Also, it would be a shot in the dark to look for someone who will train you to run your business and only accept a “fee” after you start earning money. They’d rather just build the business themselves!
Ideally, you will already have a website that contains articles and other affiliate offers similar to the ClickBank products you want to promote. If you haven't set one up yet though, don't worry. WordPress is a great free content management system that you can use to start a website and begin publishing articles immediately. Use your articles to draw readers in, then present your ClickBank affiliate offer within the article. You may also want to develop a newsletter for your own website and use it to promote your ClickBank offers to your audience as often as possible. (See: How To Monetize Your Website.)

I was wondering if anyone here could direct me towards websites that have individuals who are well informed on the subject of making money online and the various ways to do it. I recently came across websites called kasottyblog.com and thatjoblessguy.com and was wondering if there are more sites like this on the internet like this where the website owners give out methods of how to make money online that they actually show you. If these websites can help someone your welcome but I am looking for more sites like this as I was searching "make money online mentoring" when finding these sites on google after hours of searching. Can someone please refer me to more sites where individuals can be mentored in the world of making money online. Thank you
Now as to your comment on traffic it is true, traffic is important. But the truth is, acquiring traffic is easier than converting it. Plus we have many posts dedicated to traffic generation on this blog. Simply check this post, this post or this post. But must importantly, the reason why people struggle with traffic is that they try to promote a sales page or a heavily biased piece of content. Nobody wants to share that, nobody wants to link to that, and as a result you don’t get traffic and blame your lack of success on traffic (like you did in your comment above).
– Project Payday is one of those sites that has testimonials of people who have earned thousands of dollars by getting paid to get trial offers. I’m not saying you’ll earn thousands, but it is legit and you can earn some extra cash. They assume that by paying you to do a free trial, you’ll either like the product and purchase it, or forget to cancel the trial and get charged for it. If you can keep track and cancel before you get charged (if you don’t want the product), then this is a great site for making some money.
Our unique money earning software enables our users to run multiple iterations of the software on as many computers as they wish. There is no limit to the amount of times you can run the software, so you can maximize your earnings by running the software on the same login with multiple machines which will increase your income at a much faster rate than if you run the software on one computer.

–>It takes awhile to produce tons of income off of these products. Unless you are an amazing marketer (in which case, BRAVO!), it’ll take a while for you to build up an interest list or buyers group to purchase these products. And if they are at a low cost, say $30-$50, you’ll need to sell plenty of them to pay your mortgage. So, it’ll be a bit before you recoup your investment of time, and this will probably not be your prime source of income in the beginning.


Budget out all your expenses including office rent, travel, phone service, subscriptions & memberships, office supplies & equipment, advertising, and services. It helps to look through your business credit card statements over the last year to see everything you’ve spent money on for the business. Add all your expenses to the amount you want to take home and that is how much money you want to make.
- Having a job is a great way to start making some cash flow, but you should use it to actually start a business. A job isn’t scalable. You only have 24 hours in a day, and you're not even going to work more than 12 hours in a day. Having access to the internet is all you need, you can see that attention is now the new way to becoming successful. The more exposure your brand gets (whether that is from posts, social media, websites, etc) the more opportunities you have to monetize off your traffic. When you have a lot of people's attention, and you create a product, you’re likely to make a sale. THIS IS SCALABLE. Anything you put out on the internet compounds, continually getting more and more traffic that gives you a chance to make a sale.
Creating a blog with Wordpress is a piece of cake, no need to have a great knowledge of coding. You can read this article to create your own blog. But how to make our website/blog appear at the top when potential customers search for the keywords this is very hard. This task is called SEO, which you have to work a lot in a great amount of time to be able to appear at the top results of searching. Here are some amazing tips to get more visitors to your blog without invesment this may help you.
1. Digital products: instructional products aimed at providing systems and information toward the desire to transform lives (health, dating/relationships, financial, self-help, family/parenting, etc...) Eventually you want to produce your own products (reports, ebooks, books, courses, coaching, software, etc...) but you can start by marketing as an affiliate
If you want to build a website about a specific topic (your niche) then using email is not to be missed. Basically, when customers read the contents in our website. They have subscribed to our newsletter (you can see this on the sidebar of our blog). Then we will send marketing email with offers, discounts and advertising other products also to their emails.
Whether it’s an important consumer application, a specialist app to solve a particular niche problem, or even a time-wasting game you can play on your phone, you can create a massively successful business if you build software that helps people. (Look at the rise of Slack—the team communication software that went from side project to billion-dollar company in just 2 years.) 

22. Advertising – This is definitely the most old-school way of earning money with a blog. It’s also starting to become the least common way. You can sell advertising spots directly on your site or you can sign up with a company like Google AdSense or Media.net. Either way, you won’t see a whole lot of money from ads until your views are well into the thousands each day.
Not only will this multiply the money you’re bringing in in a serious way, but it protects you against any sudden changes in the market or in your business. Remember that old saying about putting all your eggs in one basket? A few hours a week committed to just one or two of the following opportunities will put you in a much stronger position to be financially safe and independent.
Since coaching and consulting isn't a passive income stream and it actively requires my time, there's an opportunity cost for me in taking on clients.  That opportunity cost is it takes away my time that I could spend on creating passive income streams.  That's why I'm in a position where I can charge whatever I want if people want my 1-on-1 help.  As I grow and make even more money, I will be forced to continue to raise my rates, as whatever I'm charging now won't be worthwhile enough for me to take on clients at.
A lot of affiliates are backwards in time to close the sale, you need to, and use the nut to be in the customer’s. You want to insure that the material will be that visitors will find useful and interesting. This way you are building a relationship with visitors and projecting an image of someone who can be trusted and who knows a little about what this saying. It is ironic, really, but if you do not put a personal touch in your site, or your sales letter, people will only come as an affiliate that want to make money at your expense and will not even give a second look at the sales page you are trying to send them – even if this product is really worth.
Making money online can be really fun if you know what you're doing. Now, you don't have to feel like an outsider looking in. You have four proven ways to start making money today online. The best part is that you don't need any training, degrees, money, or special skills to get started. So what are you waiting for? Pick the options that seems most attractive to you and dive in to make extra money online.
There's always people that prefer to work with someone 1-on-1 and require that personalized attention and feedback to get to where they want to go.  Some people don't just want to “read the manual”, but want someone to SHOW THEM HOW TO DO IT and guide them every step of the way.  They want accountability.  They want access to someone that can answer their questions and give them that feedback that can make a huge difference in their lives.  This is the fastest way for anyone to achieve results and to get to where they want to go.
If you want more leverage and control of your business then creating your own product is the way to go. Package your knowledge and use sources like upwork.com or Fiverr - Freelance Services Marketplace for The Lean Entrepreneur for help with the things you are not good at. Then spend your time getting more affiliates and increasing your gravity score. How do you get traffic? By running ads on CB and other aff sites, doing solo ads to aff marketing lists, email outreach, FB messenger outreach to bloggers with big fan pages related to what you do, and so on… You don’t even need to use Clickbank if you have your own product but if you struggle with traffic, it is a good method to get your brand out there. From there you can email your affiliates whenever you have something new to promote and arrange private deals.
21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.
I`ve had only negative experiences with clickbank. I`ve only ever sold one 33 dollar digital product. The kicker is that about 5 weeks later, it got refunded! Quality really is a big issue with these products as you said. Thanks for finally explaining “gravity.” Now I`ve got a great way to judge what is quality and what isn`t. One question thought, does gravity take into account refund rates?
Teaching and tutoring English as a second language is a great way to make money online, not to mention open some doors for you to travel the world if you'd like. While full ESL (English as a Second Language) accreditation is recommended, as long as you’re a native speaker and have the ability to teach, there are people in countries such as Hong Kong or the UAE who are willing to pay upwards of $25/hr for you to tutor them English via Skype. Check out Indeed, Learn4Good and Remote.co for remote english tutoring jobs or sign up on a specialized site like VerbalPlanet or Chegg Tutors.

Coaches, mentors, instructors, and gurus are all over the place and they advertise everywhere. Simple searches on Google will reveal thousands of alternatives. I'm surprised you're having trouble finding them because my experience has been that once they know you're looking for a mentor, they will be all over you "like flies on a rib roast." (Thanks cousin Eddy).
The Internet is too big to explore alone. So you take help of search engine, but they have their own limitations. You can create directory websites which provide lists of products or websites in a particular segment. For example, you can create a directory of free WordPress themes. Create a list of websites and sources related to a particular niche. You can sell ad space to advertisers directly or using networks such as AdSense and BuySellAds.
