7 good reasons to pick clickbank if you are looking to make money online

If you are looking to make money online, then affiliate marketing is a good place to start. In fact, many successful entrepreneurs continue to make a success of their businesses by only doing affiliate marketing.

If you are not familiar with affiliate marketing, I will outline what it is.

What is affiliate marketing?

In any business, whether online or traditional bricks and mortar, in order to earn an income, you will need the following:


Products or services

Marketing methods

Let’s take the products and services.

There are 2 main ways to approach this. You can either develop a product or service or you can promote somebody else’s products or services.

There is no reason you cannot develop your own product but there 2 main issues as follows:

It can absorb a lot of time and money. Product development is taken very seriously by major corporations with huge budgets. It is unlikely that many of us can compete with such resources. Therefore, it makes sense to promote an already successful product or service.

You don’t know whether it will be successful- you may have what you consider to be the greatest idea ever, but you do not know whether other people feel the same, and whether they feel strongly enough to part with their hard-earned cash.

That is why it may be better to promote an already successful product or service.

This really is nothing new as it has been the norm in many markets. If you take the case of Apple, whereas they do have their own outlets for their products, you will find lots of stores that sell the iPhone, iPad as well as other Apple products.

Many of the PC manufacturers also adopt a similar model. It is a means whereby they can promote their products to a wider market place. In fact, there are some suppliers who concentrate on what they are good at, i.e. product development, and leave the supply exclusively to channel partners.

This is what happens on the Internet, where the practice is known as affiliate marketing. However, on the Internet many suppliers supply their products through a number of portal sites, one of these being Clickbank.

If you are just starting out, I would suggest that Clickbank is an excellent place to start for the following reasons:

1 It is a well-established supplier that was formed in 1998.

Clickbank is a privately owned company with over 6 million customers worldwide, making it the 87th largest Internet retailer in North America.

Because the Internet is fast moving, you may find that some companies cannot keep up and go out of business. Although, it is not possible to guarantee the future for any organisation, the fact that Clickbank has been in existence for over 20 years and is still growing, should give you comfort in promoting their products and services.

2 They pay affiliate commissions regularly, which should give you peace of mind.

Fortunately, Clickbank is very reliable and pays out regularly. It is comforting to know that you can go online at any time and see how much commission you have earned. You can withdraw you commission as and when you want. Because we are in a global economy, it is also very useful that you can have the money paid directly to you.

The commissions can be very high as some vendors offer as much as 70%.

3 It offers digital products, which makes it easy to deliver.

You do not have to hold stock, and you do not need to find an agent who will hold your stock. When people want to buy from you, they only have to click on your unique link, and they are taken directly to Clickbank, where they download the product straight away.

It is a very good feeling to open your account in the morning to find you have made money overnight while you have been asleep.

The alternative to digital products is physical products. It is true that many people make a success out of selling physical products. They may do it through their own web sites or they promote on sites like amazon and eBay.

I have sold physical products on both these platforms and I much prefer to promote digital products.

Let me outline just a few of the reasons:

Firstly, with digital products, they are delivered automatically. The buyer clicks on a link, enters their payment details and the product is delivered

automatically to your email address. With physical products you either need to find a supplier who will hold your good or you have to deliver them yourself. If you deliver them yourself, you need to arrange for a courier to pick the goods up or you have to go to the post office or mailing point. This is all extra time, which is avoided when you sell digital products.

Secondly there are no delivery costs with digital products. With physical products, the delivery costs can be quite high, particularly if the items are bulky.

Thirdly, the margins are normally higher on digital products. As I mentioned above, the margins on digital products on clickbank can be as high as 50%-70%. It is very unlikely that you will achieve such margins with physical products. You may achieve margins of 10%, but these can be lower in competitive markets. It is worth just comparing those margins. Let’s assume you are selling a digital product with a margin of 50%. If you sold a physical product at the same price with a margin of 10%, you would need to sell FIVE TIMES as many physical products as you would with digital products, to make the same amount of money.

You can see why it can be more profitable to sell digital products rather than physical products.

Fourthly, with digital products you can earn money while you sleep or while you are away. Because the internet is available 24 hours a day and because it it’s global, you may find that people are ordering your products while you sleep. It’s a very nice feeling to wake up in the morning and find that you have earned some money.

4 There are a vast array of products to promote in lots of different niche areas.

These include:


E-business & E-marketing

Employment & Jobs

Green Products

Health & Fitness

Self Help

There are many more categories, and within each category there are sub-categories.

It is reasonable to say that whatever your interest or passion, there will be a good selection of popular products available on Clickbank, particularly as they have over 50,000 products to choose from.

As we know, things move so quickly on the Internet and new markets are opening all the time. The good thing about Clickbank is that as these new markets open up, new products are added. This means that you will always be up with the trends as there is nothing worse than trying to promote a product in a declining market.

5 It is easy to join and is FREE

If you are looking to promote other peoples’ products on Clickbank, for most products it is just a matter of entering your affiliate name and you will have a unique affiliate link for any product.

Some other networks like JVZoo and Warrior Plus need to approve you before you promote products. If you are new to Internet marketing it may not be easy to be approved on these 2 platforms, which is why Clickbank is a good choice.

With Clickbank, you sign up for free. All you need is an email address, an account name and a password and you are ready to promote products.

In deciding whether to promote a Clickbank product I look at the sales page. If I am convinced to buy the product, other people may also buy it.

If you don’t like the sales page, pick another product. After all, there is plenty of choice.

Some affiliates have a number of accounts, which is permitted on Clickbank. The reason they do this is that sometimes they find it easier to track their progress if they are in a number of markets. Thus, one Clickbank account may represent one sector or one product.

6 Good sales collateral

The top vendors will supply lots of good marketing material including:

Banners, articles and email swipes

Email swipes are invaluable. When you promote a product, you may expect people to buy from you immediately. However, that rarely happens, particularly if the potential buyer does not know you. It is well-known on the Internet, that buyers may take up to 7 contacts before they decide to buy. That is why email swipes are invaluable. They save you the time it takes to write good emails. Also, the vendor is supplying you with emails that actually work and are known to convert suspects into buyers.

If you find a product that offers these you know that the vendor is serious about his/her business. In providing these, it saves you a lot of time and money.

7 Good earnings

Sometimes it takes as much effort to promote a $9 product as it does a $99 product, so you don’t want to be promoting a product where you don’t earn much money.

Personally, I look at a minimum commission of $20.

Normally the suppliers will over commission rates from 50% to 70%.

In any other business and on any other platform, you are unlikely to find commissions as generous as this.


If you are looking to make money online, affiliate marketing is a good place to start, and Clickbank is a very good choice for all the above reasons.

You may find that you are so successful that all you do is promote clickbank products.

How Can You Guarantee Success in Any Business?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could guarantee success in any business that we start.

There are a number of factors including:

Picking the right product/service.

Finding the buyers who are interested in what you have to offer.

Providing a quality service so buyers keep coming back.

However, one of the best ways to achieve success is to follow somebody who has already achieved success.

Think of the amount of your time and money you will save if you do this.

To be able to follow someone who has found all the pitfalls and has negotiated a path to success, is surely worth doing.

There is even more good news!!

How would you feel if you could promote all the products this leader in industry has sold over the last 12 months?

Just finding the best products to sell is quite a task.

You need to look at industry trends.

What the competition is offering.

The best price at which to promote the products.


You have a portfolio of products that have already been successful.

In addition, John will also make available his products that he releases in the next 12 months.

Overall, you will have an excellent portfolio of products that you can promote for the foreseeable future.


Just think of some of the benefits we are offering:

1 You work the hours that you want.

If you have a job you will know how difficult it can be:

Spending a lot of time commuting to and from work.

Leaving early in the morning, getting home late

Only to find you repeat the same operation the following day

Sometimes catching up with work at the weekend

Most of us would like the freedom to work when we want.

Fortunately, this is something you can do with our program.

We all have our own preferences. I am an early riser so I like to do my work when there are no distractions. I find this time very productive as I switch off my mobile, leave my email alone and just get on and do what I need to do.

I then have the rest of the day to enjoy as I want.

2 You are following a winner

Although many people find the Internet full of income generating opportunities, most people fail to realise their dreams.

It is estimated that 95% of Internet marketers do not make any money on the Internet. There are many reasons for this, too many to list here.

Nobody can tell you how much you will earn, but if you follow all the steps that John shows you, you know that success is possible as he is in the top 1% of Clickbank vendors. That really is difficult to achieve, and you can follow in his footsteps as he shows you what to do.

3 You can earn money while you sleep

There are lots of ways to earn money on the Internet and you can either sell digital or physical products.

There is no doubt that some people do very well selling physical products on sites like eBay and Amazon. Personally, I have sold on both these sites. At one stage I posted all the products myself, but that was very timer consuming.

I then found drop shippers and even used Amazon by Fulfilment. That worked very well, but I still needed to keep an eye on stock and re-order every so often.

With this system, as we are offering digital products, there are no stock issues as there is a limitless supply.


4 You can start with low start-up costs

If you sell physical products in a traditional bricks and mortar way, the costs can be very high. You will need premises, which can be very expensive. In fact, the cost of your premises can determine how successful your business is.

If you want premises with a high footfall, then the cost of your premises will be high.

You also need stock as well as other costs like insurance, business taxes, rent, etc.

Fortunately, when you are involved in promoting digital products, your start-up costs are significantly lower. You don’t need premises and all the associated costs. Many people work from home as your main requirements are for an Internet connection and a laptop or computer.

One of the other advantages is that you are not reliant on footfall as is the case with a bricks and mortar business. You have a worldwide audience which operates on a 24/7 basis.

Considering the potential earnings, the start-up costs are very low.

5 Suitable for newbies as well as experienced marketers

There is no doubt that there are some very technical aspects on the Internet.

You will have to have some skills, but unlike many other programs you will not be expected to grapple with such topics as Search Engine Optimization, HTML and cPanel. You don’t even need a web site.

As you will see from the webinar, many people with little or no experience have managed to earn a considerable amount of money.

6 Excellent training

With every new project it is essential that you know how to use the system.

With this program, the training is excellent. John really does provide superb web-based training. Each video covers one topic and is relatively short.

If you are not sure about any aspect, the training remains online so you can watch it as many times as you like.

7 Very good support

However easy a system is and however knowledgeable you may be, there will be times when you need support. Having worked with John over the last few years, I have always found the support to be 1st class.

It is just a matter of raising a ticket, and John and his team always answer very promptly. It is because of this that whenever I see John promoting his products I always look very closely as I know the quality will be good, and the support will be excellent.

8 Daily coaching

This is definitely one of the main reasons for the success of this program.

Very often, when you start with a new program, it may seem rather complex.

Very often there is so much to do that you don’t know where to start.

With John’s program, all of those complexities are removed as he offers daily coaching over the 1st 60 days.

You are given a task to complete on a daily basis. These are relatively simple assignments and should only take you between 25 minutes and 1 hour every day.

By the end of the 60 days, you should be well on your way to success.

However, if you need further assistance, additional help is provided for the 12- month period.


9 Ordinary people are doing very well with this system

Whenever a new system is launched, it is always reassuring to see that people just like you are making a great success of it.

In the webinar you will see:

How Jon was making 6 figures within his first 90 days.

Trevor made $50k very quickly

Stuart made $44k

Shelly made $113k in her first year, and made even more in her second year.

Steven made $33k

To some of you, these figures may seem high, but with all that you are getting, you will see how feasible it is for you to make a similar level of success.


Hopefully you can see the tremendous earning potential and will want to learn more.

Affiliate marketing-how to find products on clickbank

If you’re involved in internet marketing you’ve probably heard of clickbank.
That’s www.clickbank.com, which is a very good site if you want to sell digital products.

In selecting a product to sell these are the points that I consider:

1 Select something that you know about or are passionate about.

Apart from the obvious Internet marketing, you may be interested in sports, personal development, gardening or a host of other niches.

This may seem obvious but some people just chase the money without knowing anything about the subject. If you do this, you will eventually you’ll get fed up and you’ll run out of steam.

2 You need to do make sure that it’s a good sales page. Ask yourself whether you would buy from this yourself .If so, there’s a good chance that other people will also buy the product.

3 Check that the product is selling well otherwise there’s no point in selling a product that  nobody wants . This is found in the gravity, all of which is included in the video below .

4 Another very important point is the affiliate page.You need to make sure that you’re going to be well supported on this product so if you look at the affiliate page and you see banners and email swipes then there’s a good chance that this is well supported product.

5 Also,if possible, go for something will a rebill. This means that people will pay monthly, which means you will receive a monthly commission.

These are the things that I look for,all of which I cover in the video below :
