ClickBank - first steps

Here we are, in the very beginning of our internet business, the best way of making money if you don't like having a boss.

The first step is, of course, making an Affiliate account on ClickBank Affiliate Program . I am not going to tell you how to do this, because I assume you already know. If you're banging into some problem, be sure to check their help topic: Signing Up for a ClickBank Account

After you do this and sign in, you should see something like this:

Excited yet? I sure was!

Now what you want to do, is click Marketplace, on top of the page, near the Search bar. Before you start to promote a product, think deep of what you would like to promote, you should choose something which is familiar to you. You will see a little status bar underneath every product, where are some info like money/sale, comission/sale and others. What counts the most is Grav. It's short for Gravity, and it gives you a number that is directly dependent on how many products of that type have been sold over past 8 weeks. The more grav it has, the hotter this product is. Keep in mind that Grav IS NOT products sold, it's rather a rating of how hot the product is.
After you choose a product, make sure you check that product page, see how it looks like and document yourself about it. If you think this product is the right choice, ask the producer for more info about it, or even buy it and try it, to know exactly what you sell. Afterall, trying it yourself is the best way to know it, and no merchant is a good merchant if he doesn't know what he sells.

After you decide what product to sell, you should think of ways to advertise it. Now, there are more ways of doing that. You can put an advertisement in your local newspaper including your affiliate link, you can start posting articles and reviews about it on different sites (Ezine @rticles is a good website to do that), you can even create your own website about that product. And even combining those, like making a website and advertising it on your local newspaper. There are literally infinite ways of promoting your product. Even ClickBank tells you something about promoting your product here: Common Ways to Promote Products

The Newbie Workbook for Success is an e-book I mentioned earlier. It describes a very good way of advertising your product. It is about making a webpage for your product and advertising it through search engines without spending money, via making backlinks to your main page. This way you work for a couple of weeks, and after you gain "trust" from Google, you don't need to work that hard any more, just update it from time to time, and the money just flows in.

I will focus on the web page promotion, telling you what to do in order to create, manage and rank your webpage high. If you rank it high enough, and people keep coming to your webpage, you will surely have a percentage of them buying your product. The more pageviews you have, the more chances are people will buy your product.
