Today I’m going to show you how I’ve made over $60,000 in the past 11 months just promoting ClickBank products part-time.
It’s a four-step process. First, I’m going to show you how to pick a product with a gravity score of 50 or above. By the way, if this is all foreign to you, do not worry. We’ll cover everything in as much detail as possible.
Step two, you need to pick one traffic strategy and go all out with it. You’re going to need traffic to this product. You’re going to need eyeballs in other words, and you’re going to need to pick one strategy.
There are so many people that are trying to do Facebook one day and then YouTube and then Instagram, and they’re splitting their focus in multiple directions. You need to be 100% all in with one thing. I’ve been 100% all in with YouTube the past five years.
Not to mention, it is free traffic. I’m also going to show you in this video how you don’t have to show your face if you choose not to. There’s tons of YouTube channels out there that have hundreds and thousands, and even millions of subscribers without showing their face whatsoever.
Then number three, I’m going to show you how to create content, very easy to do. Number four, I’m going to show you how to direct people to your affiliate link. An affiliate link is your own custom link so sales can be tracked back to you and so you can get awesome commissions like this right here.
Before we begin…
If you’re curious to know what’s working for me when to comes to making money online and affiliate marketing, check out my recommendation below my video…
It’s helped me generate a consistent 5 figures per month and helped thousands of others as well.
Clickbank For Beginners
Let’s go ahead and let’s dive in here. I’m going to act as if I’m somebody that’s going to go out there. We’re going to select a product. I’m going to show you how I’m going to build the campaign and everything, and you can choose, whoever gets to this video first can choose whether they want to take this and run with it or not because this is something that has brought in over $1 million for me personally in commissions online with affiliate marketing.
Now I say this again not to brag, not to boast. Also as an income disclaimer by me saying that I’ve made this much, there’s no guarantee that you’re going to make this much. This took persistent work.
It took nights of stress and overwhelm, and it was because I wasn’t patient. I had to realize that the video content that I put up today was going to make me money 30, 60, 90 days from now. Your income is in direct proportion to the value that you give to the marketplace. This isn’t trading time for money.
We’re all wired, if we’ve worked a 9 to 5 job in our lives, we’re wired to trade time for money. That’s not what this is. This is highly leveraged stuff. It’s like do you want a few thousand dollars today or do you want a few hundred thousand dollars months or years ahead, right?
That’s something that I often say in my channel to remind you guys that this is going to take work.
With that being said, let’s dive into the content.
Clickbank For Beginners – Setting Up Your Clickbank Account
By the way, it’s free to sign up for ClickBank. Just go to clickbank.com.
What we’re going to do after we’re logged in and we’re in the marketplace, we’re going to scroll down and we’ve got tons of different categories right here and the category that I selected kind of premeditated this whole entire case study before I shot this video was green products.
We’ll select green products and I decided to select the power efficiency guide, that has a gravity of 102, and the reason why I selected this guide is because you want to pick a product that at last has a gravity of 50 or above. The higher the gravity, the better the product sells. If you’re somebody that’s new starting out, you definitely want to go with a product that’s already proven to convert. The higher the number, the better conversions and the better that it sells.
I just kind of arbitrarily picked this product. You don’t necessarily have to be passionate about your niche, although that’s useful so you don’t quit early. Some people are motivated, like super motivated by money if they’re able to see a game plan and exactly how it needs to be executed. If that’s you, take this and run with it, but really stick to it for the next 30 to 60 days.
Clickbank For Beginners – Look At JV Page
The next thing that we want to do is look at the affiliate page because we want to find out what this product is really about.
Typically, these affiliate areas, they provide swipes, tools, resources to help us better promote the product. It just makes everything overall easier. Some affiliate resource sections are better than others. This one really isn’t that good. It’s just got a few emails that you can send out. If you don’t have an email list, this really isn’t useful for you. It doesn’t really even tell us about the product whatsoever.
What we want to do is we want to jump back over here and we want to go to of course the sales page, which I’m on right here, and what I can also do is I can read the text presentation, the text version, which is useful because you can go through, you can just scroll through and find what the product’s about. This specific product, it’s called The Power Efficiency Guide. It’s helping people save money on their electric bill. I kind of just start from the bottom, work my way to the top. It says, “There’s only one thing standing between you and savings of $160 a month or more on your electric bill.”
What I’m going to do is take these little buzzwords like “saving money on your electric bill, preserving energy,” right. I’m getting all these ideas just from looking at this one sentence on the sales letter. It’s giving me tons of ideas as to what people would type in to YouTube or Google if they were a prospective possible customer.
Since the traffic strategy that we’re going to be using is going to be in fact YouTube and it’s going to be a bit of Google, too, because you can rank videos in Google.
Now what we want to do is we want to come up with search phrases that people may type in, aka customers, to find this product, and this is where it gets really fun and interesting. I’m just going to think off the top of my head if I were a customer, what would I type in to the search engines to find this product?
One search term would be “save on my electric bill”, “how to save on electric bill”, “how to save electricity”, “how to preserve electricity”, “how to preserve energy in my home.” I would write down just a ton of these keywords. We want to write down as many as we can in 5 or 10 minutes.
What we’re going to do after is go over to YouTube and we want to go for the low hanging fruit. Low hanging fruit is like they’re ready to buy. The first type of person would be somebody that’s actually searching for The Power Efficiency Guide, right, so “Power Efficiency Guide” and then even “Power Efficiency Guide review” and then “Power Efficiency Guide does it work”. That just kind of gives you some more ideas.
Then what I’m going to do is start taking these search phrases plug them into YouTube and see if I can get some other ideas. You’ll notice when you plug in a search term, check it out, you see these other ideas that pop up. YouTube’s actually telling us what users are most commonly typing in to their search engine.
We have how to save on my electric bill, that’s even better, how to save on my electric bill. What we can do is we can delete this keyword because we have it in the search phrase right here. We also had save on electric bill, lower my power bill at home.
What these different search phrases would represent is different topics that we would talk about within our YouTube videos.
Now don’t worry, you’re probably wondering, “Well, I know nothing about how to help people save money on their electric bill.” Don’t worry. We’ll get to that in just a second. But what we want to do is we want to repeat this process over and over and over again. So I’d take the next keyword. Let’s just pick this one right here, how to preserve electricity.
Clickbank For Beginners – Creating Content
Then step number three is we want to create the content now. What we’re going to do is we’re going to go to Google and I’m going to take some of these keyword phrases or I would just take all of them.
What we want to do is take this search phrase and throw it in to Google. Then what we can do is we can look at these articles here and we can have these articles, we can basically take out these articles, number one, we can have them rewritten ’cause you don’t want to plagiarize.
You can have them rewritten and then you could also hire somebody to put them in a PowerPoint presentation and then you could have somebody read that presentation for you so it’s completely outsourced if you don’t want to do it.
What we’re doing is we’re taking content that’s already out there, we’re using our marketing knowledge to create a video around that content and then rank that content at the top of YouTube search engine and Google search engine.
If you notice, that’s what most people are doing online. We’re not reinventing the wheel here. There’s been teachings and principles throughout time that have been regurgitated and regurgitated and told in sort of a different way, and that’s essentially what we’re doing on the internet.
We’re taking a concept, we’re taking an idea and we’re recreating it so it’s easy to understand for the next person. The idea of course as an entrepreneur especially is to be able to explain a concept or an idea better than the next person. The better that you can explain something, the more likely that the consumer is going to buy from you, right.
A lot of people are like, “Well, you can’t steal information,” yada, yada, yada. Of course, you can’t steal information, but what you could do is you can take that information, you can repurpose it, rewrite it and then, explain it in even more layman terms.
That’s what we would do here is we would repurpose this content and our video could be the 15 Steps or the 15 Ways to Save Money on Your Water Bill and it’d be a little power point presentation.
You’d walk people through how to do that or have somebody else do it.
At the very end, you would have what’s called a call to action where you tell people what do to next. “Click the link below to learn more about how you can save money on your water bill and particularly, there’s a guide that will show you everything from start to finish and you’ll be able to save as much as $160 a month.” That’s what you would say at the end.
The idea is to actually put your link in the description of your videos.
The question is “Well, Josh, where do I go to get these types of videos created?” You can go to fiverr.com.
I absolutely love Fiverr and you can just type in “create PowerPoint” and see what pops up real quick. You will find a great person that you could go with and have this whole entire process outsourced.
