Clickbank Signup: Finding Products 03

Finding Products and Creating Links

The first step towards making your first few sales is to find 1-3 great products to promote and generate affiliate links for those products.

Step 1: Go to the Marketplace

At the navigation bar, click “Marketplace” to go to the listings of affiliate programs you can promote.


Step 2: Choose a Navigation Method

When you land on the marketplace, you’ll see a page that looks something like this:

There are two primary ways to find affiliate programs to promote are to either browse the categories, or to search for a specific program.

If you know the exact name of the program you want to promote, just type it in the search bar above. You can also just type in a keyword and see what you find.

Alternatively, click on one of the links on the left to start browsing programs.

Step 3: Choose a Program

After you conduct a search or select a category, you’ll be presented with a page with a list of affiliate programs that matched the category or search.

On it there will be a bunch of information you can use to help make your decision. Here’s an example of what this page will look like:

Here’s what the various statistics mean:

Avg $/sale: About how much you can expect to make per sale. This number already takes into account Clickbank fees. The number can vary however, depending on upsells and how long customers stay on continuity. The average profit is the number shown here.

Ave %/sale: This is the percentage of the profits that the publisher is offering affiliates. The higher the percentage, the better for you. The highest commission Clickbank allows is 75%.

If you become a “super affiliate” doing over 1,000 sales a month however, you’ll often be able to negotiate extra payments on top of the Clickbank payments directly with the publisher for commissions as high as 85% to 90%.

Grav (Gravity): Gravity is a somewhat complex rating system that ranks affiliate programs based on how much volume they’ve produced in the last month. It includes several factors like how many were sold and how many affiliates promoted the product.

In general, you want to aim for products that have Gravity of between 20 and 80. No lower than 20 because those products haven’t proven that they can sell, no higher than 80 because those products tend to be highly promoted and highly competitive.

That said, if you already have a website getting traffic for an industry related to a high gravity item (like make money online,) then go for the highest Gravity item because they tend to have the highest conversions.

In other words, don’t compete for traffic to send to high gravity products. If you already have a traffic source though, send it to high gravity products for the highest conversions.

Step 4: Generate Your Affiliate Link

To generate your affiliate link, the link that lets Clickbank know traffic sent through it came from you, simply click the “Promote” button next to any affiliate program.

Once you click promote, a box like this will pop up:

Your account name will automatically be filled in. The Tracking ID is an optional addition you can add to your link to help you track where your sales came from.

For example, let’s say you have 3 places on your site where people might purchase a product: From the front page, from the sales page and from an email you sent.

Instead of just guessing where your sales are coming from, by using Tracking IDs you can know for a fact where your sales are coming from.

For example, you could have the three Tracking IDs: FRONT, SLS and EMAIL1 (then 2, 3, 4, etc.)

Then, when you make a sale, you’ll be able to attribute it back to where the sales came from.

Here’s what the page looks like when you click “Create”:

Simply copy the link above and use it as a hyperlink anywhere on your site or in your emails. Whenever someone clicks on the link, Clickbank will know it came from someone you sent. If they buy something, you’ll make a commission.
