How to Use ClickBank to Make Money From Home
So what is ClickBank exactly and what does it do? Basically, it is a marketplace where users buy, sell and promote digital items, such as memberships and digital ebooks and software. There’s a huge variety of topics including Internet marketing, dog training, fitness, relationships, wealth, and a whole lot more.
Most of ClickBank is “how to” guides and information. What all of these products have in common is that they are instantly available to the user, meaning that they can be accessed or downloaded instantly after paying without waiting to receive a physical product, and most importantly, they fill a need that buyers have, or provide answers to questions that they are asking themselves.
The easiest way to make money on ClickBank is by promoting a product as an affiliate. You then get a commission for each sale depending on the price of the product being sold. As all products are digital, there is little overhead for their creators, meaning that it is not uncommon to see commissions as high as 75% of the price of the item being sold.
When you promote a product from the ClickBank marketplace, you are given a “hoplink” that identifies the product as well as you as an affiliate. Their system then tracks every sale that is generated through your hoplink automatically. You then receive a check for the amount of commissions that you have earned in a pay period, which is 2 weeks.
There are many methods you can use to promote ClickBank products as an affiliate, such as writing articles on the product and submitting them to directories, putting ads on your website, using pay per click ads on search engines, or buying banner space on websites which are related to the product you are promoting.
