There is exciting news about a new system to help you make money with the
world’s largest affiliate network, Clickbank.
If you haven’t heard about affiliate marketing before then you’re in for a
surprise. Affiliate marketing is a way to earn commissions from promoting
someone else product. Basically, you are doing the advertising for them,
sending traffic to their site (with a code linked to you) and they pay you when
a sale occurs. It is beneficial for vendors because their costs are lower as they
only pay when the sale is made. So it’s a win/win for all parties involved.
That’s why it’s something you should not ignore.
Clickbank is a repository of digital products like software and eBooks. There
are products for all kinds of interests and niches. Clickbank is likely to be one
of the first places you would go to find interesting digital products to sell
online. Why? It’s easy to join, use and is very reliable in handling
commissions (unlike some other affiliate networks where you must submit an
application and be accepted).
So what is the drawback? Unfortunately there are many. So, what are they?
Firstly, because the site has so many product choices it’s hard to decide which
ones you want to promote and which ones are top sellers.
Second, looking for a particular product on Clickbank can be difficult.
Sometimes, even searching for the exact name doesn’t find it.
Third, when you find a product which you believe is just the right one, you
have to learn how to promote it. Naturally, even if it’s the best product in the
universe if you can’t get the message out so interested people can access
(and importantly, buy) it’s no worth a dime to anyone.
Fourth, many affiliate products listed in Clickbank do not provide marketing
tools, like articles, banners etc to ease your marketing burden.
Fifth, when you do make a sale it’s generally a one-off commission to you,
with no future linking of the prospect to you.
The usual marketing system has been something like this:-
1. Research a niche
2. Find a product
3. Buy a domain name ($)
4. Buy web hosting ($$)
5. Write sales copy and create a video to complement the product
6. Develop a “free bonus” to entice buyers
7. Buy an auto-responder service ($$$)
8. Set up your website and place the copy on a squeeze page (also called
an opt-in page) and place the auto-responder code on it.
9. Develop an auto-responder email series
10. Write and set up a “Sales Page” with your affiliate links
11. Write and Set up a “Thank You” page
12. Set up and pay for a Pay Per Click campaign to get traffic to your new
13. Implement other traffic strategies like social media, article marketing,
forum and email etc.
Unless you have a lot of knowledge (technical, copywriting skills etc) this path
can be long and arduous, not to mention expensive. Not all the cost is actual
money out of your pocket, don’t forget the cost of your time and loss of
The internet marketing gurus have been selling their courses primarily based
on this business model. Of course, these people usually have employees (in
an actual office or virtual assistants either based at home or sometimes in
places like India or the Philippines) who do most of the grind and technical
stuff for them, while their job is to get up on stage and promote like crazy.
It’s a business model which has made many millionaires – mainly the people
promoting the courses. On the side of the budding entrepreneur (being one
person trying to do all that stuff) while there must be success stories, the vast
majority suffer (despite long hours of learning and hard work) growing
frustration and disappointment.
While you can’t actually say the gurus have been lying to us they certainly
haven’t been telling the whole story about the resources you need to really
succeed. Plus most aspiring internet marketers try to do all of the work
themselves, in their “spare” time while they are working full time. It’s a
recipe for despair.
Of course there are other internet business models, like blogging. To make a
living from blogging requires at lot of ingredients, like, the right market, lots
of other technical “learning curve” stuff, plus a passion for the topic and
finding ways to monetize it. If you’re not passionate you will just give up.
Imagine blogging about a topic in which you have no personal interest, it
would just be tedious.
