Clickbank is one of the Internets most successful and popular affiliate network sites, providing software/e-book creators with a place to sell their product, and providing web-publishers with the opportunity to make money from selling products on their websites.
Clickbank allows product owners to sell their products through the Clickbank network. The Clickbank site has thousands of members who promote the Clickbank products by using their own websites, earning a commission for every sale they can make. These people are known as affiliates of Clickbank, and their purpose is to try and sell the items that get listed on the Clickbank marketplace.
Clickbank specialises only in selling digital products on the Internet. These products mainly consist of e-books (an electronic book which provides information on a specialised subject) and software (graphic-design programs, operating systems, etc). The creators (or manufacturers) of these types of products love Clickbank because it provides them with a way of selling their products. They know that Clickbank has hundreds of thousands of members, who are all willing to promote these products on their own websites and any other online methods. The product creators allow Clickbank to take a commission on every item sold, with Clickbank passing this money on to the people who sell the products (which is tracked by using personalised affiliate links).
The most popular way of making money from Clickbank is by promoting the products that are available to sell, on your own webspace, and thus earning a commission on any sales that you are able to generate. The other main way of making money from Clickbank is by selling your own product on their site, but unless you own your own e-book or have created your own piece of software, it is unlikely that you will actually be able to make money from Clickbank in this way. (It would also cost you around $50 to open an account with Clickbank if you are a publisher).
The other way of making money from Clickbank is from its referral program. You can earn 20% of any referred publishers account set-up fee, which would be around $10 (20% of $50). You would also earn money depending on the amount of sales that publisher manages.
Promoting the Clickbank products on your own websites is by far the best way to make money from the Clickbank website. All you will need to do is find a product that you wish to promote, and then create your affiliate link and upload it to your website. You would then earn money every time a website visitor clicks your unique affiliate link, and goes on to purchase the item from the Clickbank publisher.
If you want to be successful from the Clickbank program you will need to promote products that are of interest to your website visitors. There would be no point in promoting an ebook which specialises in teaching the art of Yoga when you own a heavy-metal music website (we doubt there are many heavy-metal fans who are also interested in Yoga).
If you owned a dog-training website you would be in a good position to sell dog-training e-books from the Clickbank marketplace on your site. This is because your website visitors are definitely going to be interested in the topic of the e-book, and so they are going to be far more likely to purchase the item.
The best way to choose a product to start promoting would be to join the Clickbank site and spend some time browsing through the Clickbank marketplace. Depending on your situation, you might be want to look at specific product categories; ones which are of interest to your website visitors. If you don't currently have your own site you might want to set one up specifically for promoting a Clickbank product that interests you. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you choose a Clickbank product to promote which is going to be of interest to the viewers of your website - otherwise you will struggle making any money.
Every time you sell a product from the Clickbank marketplace on your site, you will earn a commission. This commission is an amount between 1% and 75%, and it varies greatly depending on the product of which you are selling. Some products will pay you more commission than others, so it will be important to find a product to sell which is going to make you money, but at the same time be careful not to go for over-expensive products (otherwise no-one will actually buy them). The minimum commission for a sale on Clickbank is $0.25 and the maximum amount of commission available is $100.
Clickbank tracks the products you sell and the commission that is earned on a daily basis. You get paid by cheque twice every month (depending on the amount of commission that you have earned, and the preferences set in your account). You can choose your own payment threshold, and you will only receive your payment when that amount is reached. You can set an amount anywhere from $10 to $10,000.
Clickbank is an extremely popular and well-known affiliate site, with hundreds of thousands of members who currently make money from promoting the many various products that are available to sell. Clickbank can be a very lucrative form of income for website owners in a particular valuable niche, but theres no reason why anyone can't set up their own website today and start to promote products listed on the Clickbank site. As long as you have the correct type of website set up, and are able to get targeted visitors to your site, you should be able to make a lot of money from the Clickbank affiliate program.
