How To Choose A Good ClickBank Product To Promote
How To Choose Which Clickbank Product to promote
Trying to decide on which Clickbank Product you should promote as an affiliate marketer can be difficult with so many options, so this hub will attempt to help narrow down the field for you.
I'll go over some of the things that you need to know to make money with clickbank and also go over so other tips for affiliate marketing and internet marketing to help boost your income.
Let's Look At Gravity & Commission first
With thousands of products to choose from, how do you know which is the best Clickbank product to promote and that will perform the best for you?
Here are some tips that I use to help me choose a good Clickbank product to become an affiliate for.
Gravity would have to be the first factor I look for when deciding on a product. Gravity tells us roughly how many other people are making sales with the product. The higher the number, the more people are selling it.
So does a high gravity product mean you should automatically choose it?
... Sometimes ... Depends.
While I realise that's a little vague there are a number of other factors that you will need to consider before choosing your product.
Most of the products I choose have a gravity of over 40. I rarely promote new products because I just don't know if they are going to be winners or not.
Be careful about choosing products with gravity over 100. This means you have a lot of competition and it'll be harder to stand out from the crowd.
The next thing I look at is how much money I am going to make per sale. I like anything over $20, but preferably closer to $30.
This means that any money or time I spend promoting the product is worth my time.
Whether you choose ppc or other free methods of promotion, factoring in hours or work to just make $10 per sale is usually not cost effective unless you think you can sell hundreds of that product.
I would rather spend less time to make more money.
How To Choose The Best Clickbank Product to Promote
If you are really serious about choosing the best product from Clickbank to promote then you are going to have to think outside the box a bit and NOT do what every other affiliate out there is doing.
Let's take for example one of the highest gravity products on Clickbank right now - Fat Loss 4 Idiots.
Do a search for the product name in Google and you are going to get THOUSANDS of results. That's WAAAAY to many to try and compete with.
So should you ignore the product altogether?
Well not necessarily because it's possible to still make money promoting it. But you have to be different than 99% of the other affiliates out there.
In fact, did you know that some of the most successful affiliates for FL4I don't actually write reviews on the product or even weightloss or diet articles? Nup, they don't.
Instead they understand that the target market is probably women in their 30's so they write about OTHER things that that target audience might be interested in such as beauty, career, juggling motherhood etc AND THEN they have prominent FL4I ads in the sidebar of their blog or somewhere else on their sites that get's attention.
They are no longer competing in the highly competitive fat loss market - instead they are targeting the AUDIENCE directly who isn't even looking for that info but would probably be interested in it anyway - similar to the way that women's magazines work.
Therefore you can still choose the high gravity, best clickbank products but you need to get smart about it.
Obviously no matter whether you are promoting a Clickbank product or your own product - the key is getting traffic to your site.
As mentioned you can either use paid for traffic (such as Adwords) or free traffic.
Some great free traffic ideas include:
- article marketing e.g. ezinearticles
- forum marketing
- bum marketing
- writing ebooks
- eBay e.g. classified ads
- social marketing e.g. facebook
- using squidoo lens and hubpages (like this one)
And much more.
