Are you looking for the best ClickBank affiliate program? This one of the first challenges for new affiliate marketers – the answer is that there really isn’t just one “right” program. Although you might want to start out with just one until you get the hang of it. This article will discuss some of the confusion about affiliate marketing and how to go about it properly.
Many new affiliate marketers look at hundreds of products/services all at once and try to figure out which ones are the best. In the end, they are just overwhelmed and can’t make any decision at all so all of their time and effort has been wasted. Or. . .they choose one affiliate program and don’t give it time before switching to another. This is also a waste of time and money.
Here are some very simple guidlelines to help you find a suitable Clickbank affiliate program.
Choose which niche you want to serve and look for a product/service that would do so in Clickbank. I recommend choosing from Clickbank because it is extremely easy and popular – you can search more affiliate marketplaces later on.
Pick one program that interests you and that is doing well in terms of popularity and gravity. Study and learn everything about the product. Find reviews about the product from many different sources if possible.
Choose just one traffic-driving method to get people to this product and stick to it. Here are just a few poplular methods:
– Social media (i.e. MySpace.com, Facebook.com, Twitter)
– PPC – Pay Per Click Advertising
– Article marketing
– Web 2.0 (i.e. EzineArticles, Squidoo.com, HubPages.com GoArticles, etc.)
– Press releases
If you’re new, it might help to pick a product that has a built-in membership program which shows you how to market the product. It might cost you something to be a member and you can evaluate if you think the training offered will help you to make more profits or not.
Look for programs that offer:
– insight into some “secret” niche markets
– Specific keywords of the niche market
– a product/service which can be customized to you (your name)
– Website banners that can be uploaded to your website or blog
– Ready-Made articles that you can change slightly and send to the various article directories
– Pre-prepared PPC campaign and emails for your list.
These membership programs can save you some time and money and help you start to generate profits more quickly.
The biggest factor that will increase your success is not as much the Clickbank affiliate program that you choose as much as the consistent effort that you put forth. Make sure that you track your campaigns and give each of them enough time before deciding whether or not to move on to something else.
