Making money as an affiliate marketing by promoting products from Clickbank can be a very profitable business. There are a number of different ways to successfully promote Clickbank products, some are easier than others, some are free while others require some capital. This article will discuss the top four methods for promoting affiliate products and making a great income with Clickbank.
1. Article Marketing
Article marketing is one of the most popular methods for promoting affiliate products. It is easy and it is free which are two of the reasons for it’s popularity.
With article marketing, you write articles based around your chosen keyword phrases that relate to the product you are promoting. Then you submit those articles to article directories to be published on those directories. You will include a link to your website, where you promote the affiliate product, in the resource box of the article.
By submitting articles with a link to your website you are getting more exposure to your website through those visitors that read your article. Some article directories will allow you to link directly to the product you are promoting, while others will not let you link directly to an affiliate product so you will link to your own website.
2. Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization is a great way to earn money long term with affiliate marketing. With Search Engine Optimization or SEO the idea is to set up your website so it is optimized for the search engines which will help you to get a higher ranking.
If you can get your website ranking high in the search engines then you will get a lot of free traffic that you can then promote your affiliate products to.
Good SEO can take a bit of practice and you need to learn this skill well to be successful with it. If you do learn SEO and set up your site so it is highly optimized the results will pay off for long term success.
3. Pay Per Click
Pay per click is one of the very popular methods to promote affiliate products used by the ‘super’ affiliates. This method is not so popular for those starting out and who are on a limited budget. PPC can be quite expensive and if you don’t set up your campaign correctly then it could cost you a lot of money.
Pay per click does require some investment to get started but if done right that investment can pay off nicely. PPC is all about finding the right keywords that you can get a lot of clicks through to your website without paying a high price to get those clicks. PPC can involve a lot of trial and error before you find the right keywords and offers that pay off well.
You can often lose money when first starting out with PPC but if you keep trying and tweaking your campaigns it can be very profitable long term.
4. Forum and Blog Commenting
Forum and blog commenting is also a very popular way to make money with Clickbank. Some people get this wrong by spamming forums and blogs and they will soon get banned from those forums. When using forum and blog commenting you need to be professional and make informative posts and comments.
With forums, when you become an active member of the forum and leave informative posts, you will be able to put a link to your website in your signature. If you are making short, spammy posts then you will get banned or not be allowed to have a link in your signature.
The most important point to remember with both forum posting and blog commenting is to be helpful and contribute to the posts.
These are the four most popular methods used to promote and dominate Clickbank products. You can try all of these methods or just one and see which method you prefer. If you find a method that works for you then duplicate what you are doing and you can increase your Clickbank income until you are making the sort of money you dream of making.
