Work at Home and Make Money Online with Clickbank

Aug 17, 2007
If you have an online business or the desire to work at home via the internet, then you have probably heard of Clickbank. Clickbank is like an online marketplace where you can buy, sell, and promote digital products from the comfort of your own home. Now this sounds like fun when you don't even have to handle, package, or ship any physical items, or deal with any credit card transactions! How much easier can life get than that?

If you are wondering how you can work at home and make money online with Clickbank, then wonder no more! Most people starting an online business look first to affiliate programs. At Clickbank, you can make some quick commissions by promoting the products or services of your choice. Whenever someone clicks on your link to that product or service, and goes on to buy the item, you receive a commission on that sale. The great thing is that you have thousands of products to choose from, and it's free to set up a Clickbank account and start earning immediately! Depending on what product you choose, you can earn a pretty hefty commission too!

The thing to remember is that setting up a free account with Clickbank isn't exactly the ticket to online business success. You must actively promote these products by using various internet marketing and website promotion techniques. For example, you want to SEO your website, meaning that you want to direct the search engines to your site frequently by using appropriate keywords on your site that gives you good placement in the search engine listings. You also want to write articles and distribute them around the internet which may include a link to one of your Clickbank products. You may want to include your Clickbank affiliate links on your blog postings and post to your blog daily. You may want to set up a Google Adwords campaign to promote your Clickbank products. The thing is not to just sign up for an account and expect results. You do have some work to do!

Another way to work at home and make money with Clickbank is by having your own digital products or services that you can sell on Clickbank. If you aren't sure how popular Clickbank is and think your products won't sell, then think again! Clickbank sells thousands of products every day! Let's say that your favorite method of promoting your online business is by writing and distributing articles online. If you write enough articles, you can compile them into your very own e-book and offer that book for sale on Clickbank, which has thousands of eager shoppers looking for that perfect e-book!

When you sell your own products at Clickbank, you can choose how much commission you want the affiliates who promote your products to get. When a sale is made through them, the affiliate gets the commission, and you pay a certain amount for each sale made without ever having to deal with any customers or transactions, as Clickbank will take care of it all!

Now a trick I have learned for more effectively promoting Clickbank products as an affiliate is to purchase the products you are promoting, test them out for yourself, and write up a review or report on each separate product. Then post this review on your blog, and submit the report to article directories with a link to the Clickbank product's sales page. On the sales page, you should have an opt-in form that allows visitors to sign up immediately for more information. Do this regularly and you will make some sales! Remember, the trick is not to have an account, the trick is website promotion!
