Moreover, one has the freedom of dressing and can work in casual clad, not necessarily suiting up. For the parents who have to split between home chores like childcare responsibilities, are able to create balance between work and home. One does not have to commute thus saving on gas and also commuting time. Convenience for example in sales where one is closer to clients than when at work. Finally, there is access to a wider pool of applicants for example the disabled who prefer to work from home.
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.
The easiest and most natural context for an affiliate product is something that most have these days, a blog – especially if you already have a following. If readers have come to trust you and your recommendations, they will consider purchasing a product you endorse. However, this is certainly not the only way to be successful. Options like social media, paid ads, and email marketing can help drive your affiliate marketing success.
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.
Register in least 10 forums and try to post at least 100 comments in every forum. However, don’t spam in the forum otherwise you account can get ban. If the forum is relevant to your product, you will surely earn commission in your first few days. Test the product if it is performing good, then post more comments, otherwise change the product and start promoting that one.
Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission. Know that I only recommend products, tools and learning resources I've personally used and believe are genuinely helpful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to purchase them. Most of all, I would never advocate for buying something that you can't afford or that you're not yet ready to implement.
With drop shipping, you’re effectively partnering with a manufacturer or wholesaler to sell their products. This way, you don’t pay upfront costs to buy inventory, aren’t sitting on unsold items taking up expensive warehouse space, and don’t have to deal with shipping the products yourself. You simply create your site, fill it with drop shippable products, and drive in customers, with almost everything else done for you.
–>It can help you codify what you teach, and make you a better coach. Nothing sharpens your process like writing it down, or creating a video training series about what you do. Thinking through how to teach your coaching system and creating this kind of content makes you go even deeper on your own learning (and teaching style). This only helps you as a coach!
The more traffic you have, the more money you can make with ClickBank. In order to maximize your traffic, you should spend some time identifying commonly searched keywords that relate to the product you plan to sell. If you create articles and other content based on those keywords you can often get some traffic from search engines, especially if you target the less competitive long-tail keywords in your niche.
If you’re looking for great examples of people making good money on ClickBank, check out this post by AuthorityHackers as they detail the strategy they followed to make thousands of dollars on ClickBank every month. Warren Wheeler of AMNinjas also recently wrote case study explaining how he was able to bring a brand new affiliate website from $0 to $300+ per day in less than 3 months with ClickBank. Both of these posts discuss relatively different strategies. I’m actually going to get into both of those strategies as well as my recommended path to follow for beginners (and why I think beginners should follow it).
Affiliate commissions – I wanted to attend conferences to help me learn and grow. Many of those conferences offered an affiliate fee. One of the first I attended was Mark Victor Hansen’s MegaBook University. The price was $995 and I got a 30% affiliate fee. I promoted it to my little group of friends, told them I’d buy them dinner, and had 12 people join me there. I paid full price for myself, half price for my son and had flights and hotel expenses = $2500 and bought dinner for those 12 folks for another $300. So I invested $2800. But a week after I got home I got my affiliate check (33% of the 12 attendees = $3582) Deduct my total expenses and I got to attend the conference for free and netted a $782 profit. I’ve done that more times than I can possibly remember with conferences, courses and programs. We now conduct our Coaching with Excellence conferences and have affiliates who do the same as I did.
