How to Use Search Engine Optimization As An Affiliate Marketer

How to Use Search Engine Optimization As An Affiliate Marketer

When you look up search engine optimization advice on the internet, most of the tips you will find are more general and can apply to just about any website.

However, there are some SEO tips you can use that will be relevant specifically for affiliate marketers. By reading the article below you will learn how to combine affiliate marketing and search engine optimization in a way that will help you make more money.

Think about the types of things your audience will be interested in. Then think about what they would search for on search engines.

If you can identify these keywords you will be ahead of the game. One thing you can do is make your domain name about one of these keywords that you think your audience will search for often.

Using the proper keywords will increase the odds of your website being highly listed on search engine results.

Many people think that search engine optimization only really applies to the text that you use in an article, but the reality is that that is not really true.

For example, did you know that you can use images to increase your website’s rank on search engines? If you give photos file names that include keywords in them it is a subtle way to optimize your website for search engines.

When you make account profiles on other websites, use keywords that people search for in your username. This will allow them to see your username when search engine results pop up.

When they click on that link, they can see your profile or perhaps posts you make on message boards where there will be links back to your website. The more results that you are affiliated with the search engine results the better.

Help draw attention to your website by letting other websites post reviews you wrote about products or services. While these websites will not directly earn you more page views, it helps get your name out there.

People will see your article and if they find your reviews interesting enough they will click the link on your review that goes to your website.

Do not be too fancy when it comes to designing your website. Keep the navigation easy to understand so that people can get around your website without running into a lot of problems. The easier your site is to navigate, the more likely they will stay on it going from page to page.

Be warned that sometimes search engines catch on to SEO tricks and remove people who overdo it from their listings. You obviously do not want that. Make sure that you don’t overuse keywords to the point where search engines flag the results and take your website down.

As an affiliate marketer, you obviously want traffic on every page of your website. However, it is even more important to draw attention to your affiliate posts. By using the advice from the article you just read, you will soon see your profits increase.

5 Affiliate Marketing Mistakes To Avoid

5 Affiliate Marketing Mistakes To Avoid

Most new affiliate marketers do not realize their full potential because they make mistakes. That is why in this article I am going to write about 5 affiliate marketing mistakes you should avoid.

Mistake #1: Focusing on money

You should not join an affiliate marketing program because you are under the impression that you will earn a lot of money without working hard.

Becoming a successful seller takes time and generating sales is not easy. Programs that present affiliate marketing as a quick and easy way to make money are not being honest with you.

Choose a reliable program and make sure you have a good idea of what working as a seller means before you get started. You should also stay away from programs that require you to send money to get started.

Mistake #2: Promoting unproven products

Novelty products can seem like a good idea but it is best to focus on quality products with strong demand. Selling products for an affiliate marketing program means establishing a strong online presence and building a customer base from scratch.

All your efforts will be lost if the interest for your products suddenly disappears. Do some research on the market you are interested in before you decide which products you want to sell.

Mistake #3: Not creating content

Selling products does not mean pushing ads toward your audience. Ads are a good way to draw attention to a product or a discount but you need to focus on creating quality content such as useful articles, tips or video tutorials your customers will find valuable.

This quality content will help you establish a strong online presence, gain some followers and develop an excellent reputation in your field.  You can present your products to your audience once they recognize you as an expert in your field.

Mistake #4: Fearing the competition

Do not assume you are the only seller with quality products and good prices. Selling products for an affiliate marketing program means competing against many other sellers who are offering the same products.

You should observe what your competitors are doing and keep up with them, for instance by offering better incentives or a larger selection of products.

Take advantage of the mistakes they are making, for instance by developing a presence on the social networks your competitors are not using.

Mistake #5: Not taking affiliate marketing seriously

You will not become successful unless you take affiliate marketing seriously. If you do not have enough time or energy to work on this project on a daily basis, you should make changes to your priorities or wait until you have more free time before joining an affiliate marketing program.

Keep in mind that you might not generate significant profits at first, but your hard work will be rewarded if you keep applying yourself and looking for ways to improve your strategies. If you approach affiliate marketing as a hobby, you should expect to make only small profits.

Final words

That is it, those are 5 affiliate marketing mistakes you should avoid. You will more successful if you make a conscious effort to avoid these common mistakes.

Talk with experienced affiliate marketers, ask questions and make good use of the resources your affiliate marketing program offers to improve your skills and strategies.

The first step is the easiest one, just go to www.clickbank.com and then click Marketplace as shown in the image below.

 

clcikbank marketplace

Then click in the search bar as shown in the image below.

How to Make Money With Twitter and Clickbank for Free in 2020

By default, all products are arranged according to their popularity but you will want to arrange them according to gravity, In order to do that, just click in the drop menu and choose sort by gravity

cbgravity

You will get a list of all Clickbank products from the highest gravity to lowest. Gravity is the measure of how the products are selling light now, the higher the gravity means more people are making sales from that product.

You need to sell products that you know that people are buying.

Keep scrolling down the list, the ideal product should have a gravity of at least 20 ( this means at least 12 people are making money selling that particular product) and Av/sale of at least $20 ( means you will make at least $20 per sale, make 5 sales a day you´re making $3000 per month, simple math).

After finding the product do you want to promote click on the promote button. In this example, I am choosing 12 affiliate system.

Step 3: Cloak your link

After clicking the promote button in step two above, you will be taken to the following screen, just make sure that when it says account nickname it is your Clickbank user identification ( this way you will get credit for the sale).

On the tracking ID, I will recommend writing your traffic source and in this case, it is twitter. After that click on the generate Hoplinks button.

link

After clicking the generate Hoplinks button you will get a very ugly affiliate link, I do not recommend to directly promote this link, I will recommend to cloak it.

In order to cloak your affiliate link, I will recommend using bit.ly. Just go to bit.ly, create an account (it is free ).

bitly

Click on the create button, copy the long ugly affiliate link that you got from Clickbank and paste it where it says PASTE LONG URL, then click create, that is it you will get the link like this one. bit.ly/37zF3mW

Step 4: Create and Optimize your twitter account

Now you have the product and the link you need to create a twitter account that you can use for your affiliate promotions if you have one you can use that one if you do not just create a new one, it is easy and very quick.

Just go to Twitter.com

Twitter will ask you to log in or create a new account, depending on your situation you can log in or create a new account, to create a new account they may ask you a phone number, email address, and your name.

For twitter username, I will recommend finding a name that is short and easier to remember, you can just use your name or pen name if you wish, if the username is taken, try to find a new one and avoid using numbers at the end (it creates mistrust), you need to create a profile that people can trust.

Optime your profile

Use your real photo

I found it easier to attract new followers when I use my real photo, I will recommend you to do the same. never leave the default profile photo.

Create a cover image.

I use a free tool called canva.com to create my twitter cover images, it is free, easy and quick, again do not leave the default cover image.

Write a short bio and put your link on it.

Here is where things start to get interesting, you will need to create a short bio to introduce new people to your account and then at the end of it you can include your affiliate link.

You need to do this as most people before deciding to follow you, they can go on your profile and writing a good bio with a link on it will increase the chance of them to follow you and click the link.

here is my optimized twitter profile.

twitter page

Step 5: Write your first tweet and pin it.

Before starting to follow anyone or having any followers I will recommend that you write your first tweet and pin it.

tweet

Write a short email with a call to action, include your affiliate link and then tweet it. After tweeting it, click a drop menu on your tweet and then click on the pin to your profile as shown in the image below. That is it.

profile

 

 

Step 6: Start following other Twitter accounts

After optimizing your twitter profile, now it is time to start following other Twitter accounts that might be interested in what you are promoting.

But before going into details on how to do this please follow my account @sekimarketing

Where to find people who might need your products?

You need to find out what are big accounts on your niche. In this example, I am promoting 12 minutes affiliate and this account is dedicated to all people who want to make money online via affiliate marketing.

So the first question I will ask my self is what are the influencers in affiliate marketing? Most people must be following them.

Big affiliate marketers, like Russel Brunson, big tools like Aweber, and Clickfunnels are the influencers and most of your audience must be following them.

The idea here is to steal followers from them, this is what I mean, go to the big affiliate marketing account, click on followers and start following those people.

russel

For example, if I was targeting Russell Brunson followers, I would go to his account and I will see who is following him and I will start following those people.

The idea here is that if these people are interested in Russell tweets they are interested in marketing and becoming online entrepreneurs, some of them might be interested in my content.

If your account is brand new, I will recommend starting following 50 people per day in the first week then increase the number to 100, then 150 up to 400, Twitter allows you to follows up to 400 accounts per day.

Some of these people will start following you back and if you do this in less than a month you can have more than 1000 followers.

Step 7: Start giving value

The secrets to free traffic are to add value to the community, start posting tips and information that your audience might be interested in. I found out that motivational quotes work almost for every niche on twitter, find them and post 5 to 10 times a day, the more the better.

Step 8: Interact with other users

When you start getting followers, you need to start to retweet or like their content, and in exchange, they will do the same to you, this will give your account exposer and your account will start growing organically ( without you following other people).

Ask questions and respond to the question they ask, some of them they will ask you what you do and you will explain to them that you’re an affiliate marketer and if they are interested you can tell them how to get started if they say yes, you send them your affiliate link.

You can tweak it a bit if you’re in a different niche.

How to Make Money With Twitter and Clickbank?

When we optimized your account, you created the bio and the pinned tweet with your affiliate link, these two will be the main source of traffic, many people will see your links and few will click on one of the two links (they go to the same affiliate product), and if they buy you will get paid a commission, in this case, 50% of the sale.

How to Make Money With Twitter and Clickbank for Free in 2020

In this example, I got 515 people who visited my profile, you can get 100 times that if you do this consistently. and make some cash in the process.

how to make money with twitter and clickbank

Another way to make money will be through tweeting, I will recommend tweeting directly to your affiliate link once in a while, I would say for every 5 value-added tweets on goes directly to your affiliate link.

You can make money also by sending direct messages to people, I do not recommend using automated software for this, as it can cause your account to get banned.

What do I recommend to ask a question on one of your tweets, for example, you can ask who wants a done for you system that takes 12 minutes to set up and can help you to make up to $460.02 per day? comment yes if you’re interested.

Then you can send your affiliate link to every person who comments yes to your question, you can say a simple thing like Hey [name], Thank you for engaging with my post, here you go this is the method I was talking about in the question.

This is very targeted traffic, if you can send 100 messaged like this I am sure at least 5 of them will buy through your link and if you chose a product that pays you at least $20 per sale, you could be making $100 per day on twitter in a short period of time.}

How long it will take to make a sale with this method?

I know this is the question are you asking right now, the honest answer is that I do not know, it depends on a lot of factors, like how the product convert, how much effort you put in this, the quality of the traffic. I have done this in the weight loss niche, make money online niche, numerology niche. I generally make a sale between 70 and 15 clicks, so here the question is how much clicks you can generate per day? That will be your limit.

how to make money with twitter and clickbank

Do this method work everywhere in the world

The answer is yes, as long as you have a twitter and Clickbank account.

Does this method work for other networks apart from Clickbank?

Of course, you can replicate this method to make money using an affiliate network and any product.

Final words

This is how you to make money with twitter and Clickbank affiliate, I am using the same method to make money online, yes it won’t be overnight and it might take time to get consistency sales, but if you follow the instructions and take action every day you will make some cash.

 

How To Find Top Clickbank Products To Promote

 

How To Find Top Clickbank Products To Promote

One of the best ways to make money on Clickbank is to start as an affiliate, you’re promoting products that someone else created, they created an optimized sales page for it, they will offer support to people who buy through you and you just need to send some traffic to it and make some cash.

Much like picking your niche, choosing the best Clickbank product to promote is extremely important. No matter how good you are at promoting if you push traffic to a sales page that doesn’t sell, you will not make much money.

In this short article, I am going to show you how to find the best Clickbank products to promote.

Although most readers of this blog know what is Clickbank, let me take a few lines below to define what is it for new guys who don’t know it.

What Is Clickbank?

For me Clickbank it is a marketplace for product creators and affiliates to make money together without cumbersome paperwork or agreements.

Vendors can go and list their products at Clickbank marketplace, an affiliate can go to the marketplace and find products they want to promote, this way both of them makes money.

Why you should start with Clickbank if you’re new to affiliate marketing

When you sign up to Clickbank as an affiliate, you gain access to a database with thousands of products to promote in almost any niche.

You don’t need to be approved by vendors in order to promote products in Clickbank. The commissions are usually between 50-75%, with a higher price tag.

They have a huge selection of electronically downloadable digital products to choose from and they handle all of the payment processing so you know you’ll get paid on time. Plus, they provide real-time reporting of all of your products. The site also provides good feedback on products that are selling well and have high commission rates.

How To Choose The Best Clickbank Product To Promote in 6 steps.

So now you know what is Clickbank and why you should start with Clickbank if you’re new to affiliate marketing, so let to start with Clickbank

1: Go to Clickbank marketplace

The first step is the easiest one, just go to www.clickbank.com and then click Marketplace as shown in the image below.

clcikbank marketplace

 

If you have an audience then click to the categories and choose a category that is related to your audience, if you don’t have an existing audience then click in the search bar as shown in the image below.

clickbank

 

By default, all products are arranged according to their popularity but you will want to arrange them according to gravity, In order to do that, just click in the drop menu and choose sort by gravity

cbgravity

 

For those who don’t know, Clickbank gravity is an estimated matrix that indicates the number of an affiliate who has made a sale promoting a product in the last 12 weeks, for each affiliate who made a sale the product is given a number between 0.1 and 1 depending on when the sale was made.

You can read more about the difference between Clickbank gravity and popularity here.

2: Check out Clickbank marketplace statistics

The second step will be to go through the list of the affiliate products that will appear on your list, Clickbank marketplace will give you a number of details about each product they have, the only thing you need to do is to look up those numbers and choose the ones are that convenient to you, below I am going to give you the meaning of each number and the criteria personally I use when it comes to choosing the best Clickbank product to promote.

Gravity

Most people will tell you that you need to promote products with the highest gravity, Personally, I think this is a myth because higher gravity does not necessarily mean it is a good product and because everyone and his dog preach about promoting high gravity products most affiliates especially new ones tend to promote these products and create unnecessary competition also Clickbank gravity can be manipulated.

I will say choose a product between the gravity of 10 to 50 if this is your first Clickbank promotion stick with between 20-30 if there is no product in that range you can go a little bit low or high depending on the niche.

Initial Sale

This is the amount of money you will make when people buy a certain product by using your affiliate link, I tend to choose products with initial sale equal to or above 20. This means if I make at least one sale per day I will be making at least $20 day, it is not a bad thing.

Avg $/sale

This is the amount of money you will make on average for every sale you generate if Initial sale amount=Avg $/sale this means that the product does not offer any Upsales or people just don’t buy them.

Avg Rebill Total

If this number is $0.00 means the products do not have recurring payments so you will not make any money after the initial sale, if it is bigger than 0 means it has a recurring income.

Avg %rebill

This number represents the average affiliate commission percentage for a sale, including only the rebill commission.

Avg %/Sale

Avg %/sale is the average commission rate earned for all sales of a vendor’s products.

 

At this step, you will need a notepad or any word processor, all you need to do is to copy the name and the link of all affiliate products that meet those criteria mentioned above, then go to step three.

3: Check out for a sales page or sales video

So now you have a list of possible affiliate products that you may want to promote, remember you don’t have a winner yet, now you have to go one step more, for each link you copied in step 2 above, you need to visit a sales page or sales video. here you need to check out a few things.

No Adsense ads on the page: Believe it or not, some vendors put Adsense ads in their sales pages, in this way they can make few dollars on the traffic you send them if the vendor is not confident in his/her product why would you want to promote this product in the first place? stay away from a product with Adsense in the sales page/video.

Affiliate link to other offers: There are some shameless vendors out there that will put their affiliate link to other Clickbank products or from other affiliate programs, you should stay away from these type of products.

Other distractions: Also you should stay away to any affiliate offer with so many useless banners, links, and other nonsense distractions.

Opt-in page: Personally I don’t like affiliate products that send your visitors to their opt-in page first and then redirect them to the sales page, the problem with this is that if that person does not buy and the vendor sends them an email later and they buy but on a different computer you will not get a commission from that sell, all I like to do is first to send a person to my squeeze page and then send them to the sales page, if they don’t buy, I will send them a followup email using my affiliate link.

Bonus: If the sales page offers a bonus that is great, bonuses are proved to give your prospects the final push to make a decision to buy.

Also, check if the vendor uses some unethical ways to promote his/her products, make sure they don’t make huge claims that they can’t back them up, this will save you from potential troubles from the authorities.

It is very important to use your own intuition and decide if this is the product that your audience will love to buy and it will help them to solve their problems.

4: Check out for promo materials

You also need to check out if the vendor offers any promo tools and materials, this is important especially if you’re new, but for me, it is not that important you can always create your own promo materials with very little effort. But it is a bonus point if they have them.

5: Send an email to support

If do you have any concern about their product, just send them an email, and take note on how long it will take them to reply. If they never reply or they take too long to reply there is a big chance that they will do the same to the people who will buy through your affiliate link and this will piss most of them off and they will refund the product, you don’t want this to happen, that is why this step is so important.

6: Buy the product

Most Clickbank products have a great sales pitch, they will tell stories that people want to buy and when they buy they won’t deliver on those promises ( they do this because they know most people will not take action so they will be low refunds and they will make a lot of money by selling a crap product).

You need to buy the product so that you will know exactly what your customers will be getting, also buying a product will give you a good feel factor as you will be promoting a product that you know for sure will help your prospects.

If you really don’t have money to do this, you can do research and check out what people are saying about the product, if do you find a lot of bad reviews probably it is a sign that it is not a good product.

Ask yourself this question, if I had the money I will pay for this product? if the answer is no don’t promote it.

7: Promote the product

So now you have the best Clickbank product to promote, in case you have more just pick the one that resonates with you the most or the one do you think you can produce some kind of content about it and then start promoting it.

There are a lot of ways to promote Clickbank affiliate products, you can build a review blog, you can use Twitter, you can use Facebook, you build an email list, etc.

If you don’t know where to start promoting your Clickbank product, you can read this another article on my blog,

How To Promote Clickbank Products Without a Website Step By Step

How To Promote Clickbank Products Without a Website Step By Step

As an affiliate, you can use blogging, email marketing, social media, product review pages, and many other ways to promote products and services online. In this post, I will show you how to promote Clickbank products without a website or blog step by step as an affiliate to make money online.

First, What Is An Affiliate?

 

An affiliate is someone who uses an “affiliate link” to send website traffic to a vendor’s site that sells a product. If a sale is made upon that visit, or within a set time of that initial visit, the affiliate receives a commission (a pre-determined portion of the sale price).

In the Clickbank, you’ll receive an affiliate commission if the prospect buys within 60 days of the initial visit. This is referred to as 60-day cookies (cookies is the internet term for keeping track of website visit history).

Why Clickbank?

The reason I recommend Clickbank is that they approve almost everyone to promote their products and they will pay you every Wednesday. If your country is not on the list of Clickbank approved countries, you can check out alternatives to Clickbank here.

But the information from this page can be applied to promote any affiliate product from any company, just remove the word Clickbank and put your affiliate network name and you will be set.

Without any further due, here is how you can promote Clickbank products step by step without a website.

Step 1: Create a Clickbank account

The first step is to create a Clickbank account, if do you have one you can skip this step.

To create a Clickbank account go to:

https://accounts.clickbank.com/signup/

You will find a page like this one below

clickbank-create-account

Just fill in all the required information, you need to put your real information, including your real name, your real address and your real email (I know it sounds obvious but I know people who put fake information), this will save you from troubles when Clickbank pay you in the future.

Then click next, and fill up your correct bank information, after finalizing everything you will have to confirm your email and you are set to go to the next step.

Step 2: Pick a product to promote

After finalizing the creation of your Clickbank account you will need to pick a good product to promote.

All you need to do is to login in your Clickbank account and then click marketplace, that will take you directly to the Clickbank marketplace.

clickbank

 

In the marketplace you will find a search bar, if do you have an idea of what niche do you want to promote just type it in the space ( for example I was going to promote keto diet products so I typed ‘keto’, if you don’t know yet what niche to promote just leave it in blank and then click the search icon as shown in the image below.

search

When the search results appear, click in the drop menu and choose sort by gravity

clickbank gravity

For those who don’t know, Clickbank gravity is an estimated matrix that indicates the number of an affiliate who has made a sale promoting a product in the last 12 weeks, for each affiliate who made a sale the product is given a number between 0.1 and 1 depending on when the sale was made.

All you need to do after that is looking for a product that you do want to promote, for me these are the things I look from the product.

Gravity

Most people will tell you that you need to promote products with the highest gravity, Personally, I think this is a myth because higher gravity does not necessarily mean it is a good product and because everyone and his dog preach about promoting high gravity products most affiliates especially new ones tend to promote these products and create unnecessary competition also Clickbank gravity can be manipulated.

I will say choose a product between the gravity of 10 to 50 if this is your first Clickbank promotion stick with between 20-30 if there is no product in that range you can go a little bit low or high depending on the niche.

Initial Sale

This is the amount of money you will make when people buy a certain product by using your affiliate link, I tend to choose products with initial sale equal to or above 20. This means if I make at least one sale per day I will be making at least $20 day, it is not a bad thing.

Avg $/sale

This is the amount of money you will make on average for every sale you generate if Initial sale amount=Avg $/sale this means that the product does not offer any Upsales or people just don’t buy them.

Avg Rebill Total

If this number is $0.00 means the products do not have recurring payments so you will not make any money after the initial sale, if it is bigger than 0 means it has a recurring income.

Avg %rebill

This number represents the average affiliate commission percentage for a sale, including only the rebill commission.

For me, the most important factors are gravity and initial sale, for that reason that is why I selected the second product in this list (see the image below).

But that is not all, now you have selected the product you need to check out their sales page or sales video, you need to make sure that it is a nice and clean sales page/video, no link to other websites, no gimmicks or false claim and you need to ask yourself this question, I would buy this product for myself? if the answer is yes and you have money then buy it, if you don’t have money but the answer is yes you can also promote it, but if the answer is no, don’t promote it and chose another product.

It is always good practice to buy and use the product yourself before promoting it.

Step 3: Get your affiliate link

So now you did all the work and you found your product, you need to get your affiliate link, this is easy, just click the promote button (the one below Avg $/sale and this popup will appear in a new window.

hoplink

In, enter your information part you should have your Clickbank nickname there, if you clicked from inside your Clickbank account it should be there by default if it is not there just type it, make sure it is correct so that you can be credited for the sales you will be generating.

Also, I will encourage you to enter your tracking ID, this is optional but it is useful because it will tell you where the sale came from and it will help you to decide which traffic generating method to focus on, in this article, I am going to use the blog commenting method (spoiler alert) that is why I put BC for blog commenting, you can put anything you want there.

Ather that click generate HopLink and Clickbank will generate one of the ugliest URLs you will ever see, just click to the icon in the right-hand side of your link to copy it and paste somewhere you can remember like in notepad and save it in your computer.

Step 4: Mask your link

Now you need to mask your link and in this step, you will need to use some cash, I know this guide is supposed to teach you how to promote Clickbank products without a website and for free but, you will need to spend a little amount of money.

The method we are going to use to promote this Clickbank product is called a direct link, this means you send your visitors directly to the sales page or sales video, there is no presale page or landing page.

Benefits of this method

The main benefit of this method is that you will get 100% CTR, CTR means Click Through Ration, in simple words means all people who will click to your link will go directly to the sales page or sales video.

The bad part of this method is that you’re not preselling or building your list, that means you’re not building a foundation of your online business.

My recommendation is that do this method, make some cash on demand and invest some of that money by buying hosting and some other tools to build a real business online, for starters it is a good starting point.

Why you need to mask your affiliate link

it is ugly

As you saw above, the link you get from Clickbank is very ugly, imagine a friend telling you he/she wants to check out the product you are promoting and she/he wants your affiliate link, how are you going to tell him/her that my link is atfghf35ftyy.clickbank.com they will think you’re crazy, the best thing is to mask it with a memorable domain name like johnrecommends.com, assuming your name is John.

And when they click to johnrecommends.com it will take them to that ugly link.

Most websites hate affiliate links

It does not matter if you’re going to promote it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or by commenting on authority blogs, if they see it is an affiliate link, they will not let you promote it, masking it reduces that risk.

It protects you in the future

Let say you’re going to dedicate at least two hours to do the method I am going to show you, after one month you will generate a lot of clicks per day and if for any reason the vendor is out of business, you can just go in your domain registrar and change the affiliate link and promote the related product, if you don’t do this you will have to search for every place you left your link and change it, it can take days or you will lose your traffic overnight, be smart.

How to mask your affiliate link

You need to buy a domain name, my highest recommendation is Namecheap as they are a very reliable domain register company, but the initial price is around 9.

If you don’t have that amount of money you can google for ‘GoDaddy one dollar domains’ you will be able to buy a single domain for just $1.

Yes, that what it will cost you to start making money with Clickbank using this method.

So since I am using Namecheap that is what I am going to use to show you how to mask your affiliate link.

Just go to namecheap.com and type a domain name do you want to buy, it can be yourname.com or yournamerecommends.com.On my case I decided to go with ketodietlowcarb.com just be creative and don’t waste more time in this.

namecheap

Just click the search icon, if a desirable domain name is available, then add it to cart, if you don’t have an account they will ask you to create one, pay for it by using Paypal or debit/ credit card then you own a domain name for one year.

After you complete the process above you will need to log in into your Namecheap account and click domain list then manage as shown in the image below.

namecheap

Make sure that in nameservers it is Namecheap BasicDNS (it should be like this by default) and then click Advanced DNS.

dns

Click on the drop menu where it says A Record, in the menu choose URL Redirect Record as shown in the image below.

record

You will have something like in the image below, in the host, space write the symbol ‘@’, in de destination URL copy your ugly link from Clickbank and post it there, in the drop menu choose Masked and then click the save button (in the red circle).

dns

After that you will need to click add a new record then select URL Redirect Record, this time in the host space write ‘www’, in the Destination URL post the same link from Clickbank, choose Masked in the drop menu and then click save.

If everything is done right, your record should look like the image below.

host

It may take up to 48 hours to update the host records, so if you test out and it does not direct you will need to wait a bit but after than any person who clicks or types your domain name will be directed to your affiliate link.

Now let us move to the last step of this tutorial, to drive traffic.

Step 5: Use a Trojan horse traffic method to drive free traffic

I first found out about this method about three years ago, I brought a product called Operation 10K by Desmond Ong and as a bonus, he teaches this method and he calls it Trajan Horse Method.

The method is very simple and it is in three steps.

you find 5-20 authority blogs in your niche.

The simplest way to do this is to use Google, you can just Google ‘your niche+best blogs’ for example in my case it will be ‘ keto diet best blogs’

For better results I will recommend doing your search in incognito mode as if you the normal browser, Google will show you results depending on your search history and other user-related behaviors, you need to see natural results.

best blogs

Find blogs with these three characteristics

You need to find between 5-20 authority blogs that have these three characteristics, one, the blog needs to have constant updates if the owner of the blog does not update his/her blog regularly there is no need to comment on it because probably you will not get traffic.

The blog needs to allow comment with a link, this is important because we are going to live a comment and then leave our link there if they don’t let you do this don’t waste your time on them.

The third and last characteristic is that the body must have active readers, you can check this by checking if there are some people commenting on the blog or if it has many shares in social media.

As I said find 5-20 of these blogs and keep them in the notepad.

Leave a helpful, respectful comment 

You need to write a good comment, you need first to read the whole article, find some points that you can comments on, leave your comment, your name, and your link.

For example in my case, I found a blog named ketogasm.com, they meet all criteria I mentioned above, all I need to here is to write a good comment, select save my name, notify me on follow and notify me of a new post then hint submit a comment.

comment

What will happen is that if I write a good and helpful comment the owner of this blog she will approve my comment and when her readers see it, they will want to click on my name and they will be redirected to my affiliate link.

If you do on average 6 minutes per comment that means that if you dedicate 2 hours, you will be leaving about 20 comments per day and if you do this every day you will start getting a huge amount of clicks every day and for sure you will make some sales.

Question and Answers

Do this method works?

Yes, it works, I still use it to make sales and drive traffic to my blogs and I know a lot of big-name marketers like Neil Patel you used this method and reported massive results.

How much money I can make from this method?

There is no guarantee how much money you can make, but in my case, I make a sale between 140 and 300 visitors to my affiliate link, sometimes I make more, it depends on many factors.

If you could post 20 comments per day in a month you will have 600 comments, and if each comment gives you 1 visitor per day this is 600 visitors per day and if you make 2 sales per day, you will be making at least $40 per day, assuming you picked a product with an average sale of $20+

Is this long term?

No, this is not a long term strategy, but you can use this method to make at least $100 per day but it is very difficult to scale up, you will need to start building your list and probably creating an authority blog yourself.

Final word 

This is how you can promote Clickbank products without a website or blog, there are many methods you can use, I will keep posting them here.

Blogging as Free Traffic Method

Blogging as Free Traffic Method

Blogging is one of the best free methods for getting targeted traffic to visit your squeeze page.  You already have our domain name and hosting account.

Now, you have to set up a Word Press blog. There are many video tutorials on how to set up a Word Press blog on the net.  You have to post new and fresh content daily at least twice, the more the better, always with a link or two to your squeeze page.

HOW TO START AN AFFILIATE MARKETING BLOG

You are going to add our auto-responder opt-in form at the sidebar of our blog as well.

A Word Press blog always gets traffic. Whatever we post on your blog, there will be visitors to read it.

You are going to post content related to our gift if we want targeted traffic at our opt-in form. Let’s say your gift is a report on list building. You should post contents that are related to listing building.

This way, the reader will know what to expect from your gift before they decide to opt-in.  That makes them a targeted prospect, and you can consider them our valuable leads.

You have to write our content that you’re going to post on our blog. The interesting thing is, most of us think that we do not have any writing ability what-so-ever.  But in the end, most of us (Internet marketers) become pretty good writers!

The thing is, you can write if you try to write. Initially, it won’t be easy but with practice and persistence, it comes out fine! You cannot write, say on list building if you do not know anything about list building.

The key here is to find valuable content on list building and read and research the subject.  You can always write or rewrite on an issue of list building in our own words if you know about it.

There is an alternate way to get content if you do not want to write yourself. You can invest some money to get content written by others. It may cost $3- $10 for a 500-word article.

There are marketplaces for these writers often called “ghostwriters.” You can find them at oDesk.com, elance.com or even at warriorfurum.com.

Another good place for cheap content is iwriter.com. Here You can get a 500-word article for $3 apiece.

Traffic generation with blogging is the most stable way to get targeted traffic. This method alone could fulfill our target of 45 subscribers per day.

Setting up a blog with the first content may not bring expected visitors. But the number of visitors grow very fast if we post our contents regularly. Visitors increase with the age of the blog as well. Overtime it collects visitors from search engines.

The way to success with blogging is consistency; that is posting fresh content at regular intervals.  That being said, there are many rules, good practices, techniques, tricks and tips for blogging successfully.

Going through a course on blogging is a good idea to take full advantage of blogging. I recommend the best course in the current market named, the pathway to passive.

5 Tips For Affiliate Marketing Success

5 Tips For  Affiliate Marketing Success

Affiliate marketing, while like any other business in many ways, also has its own unique aspects that you must explore and familiarize yourself with in order to get the results you’re looking for.

Everyone is excited when they first get started, but after diving in, you are going to realize that there are so many things that must be understood and carried to fruition.

However, this doesn’t mean you have to worry or give up; instead, it means that you need to be well-informed and put your game face on.

If you’re serious about getting started and building an affiliate marketing career, then check out these five tips for affiliate marketing success.

It is about the customers, not you.

One thing you must consider is the fact that customers are interested in products that are going to benefit them. Don’t get all hyped up about a product or product line that isn’t going to sell.

These are products you’re going to have to get familiar with yourself, and you’re going to have to believe.

Don’t let someone excite you about an opportunity to sell a five day trip to Antarctica for some underwater basket weaving lessons.

Find your niche! See what products you would like to sell and what opportunities are out there. If you’re already into affiliate marketing, then continue to look for products that are trending within your niche.

You can always pursue more than one niche as well, but have all of your information and sites organized respectively.

Targeted Traffic is the key

While traffic is important and absolutely necessary for profits, it is not just traffic that is going to get you the dough. Making sales has everything to do with “targeted traffic.”

This means that you should be providing yourself with many different avenues for reaching your customers with information and relevant content.

Driving targeted customers to your site means knowing exactly who your targeted audience is and what their traits are.

Customer retention is important

Customer retention is also key when it comes to affiliate marketing. Offer your recurring customers incentives for buying new products and making repeat purchases.

Give them information about new products via email marketing and social media marketing campaigns. Advertise special deals, hold contests, take polls and more. You have so many options when it comes to customer retention.

Learn as much as you can

Part of affiliate marketing is a learn as you go process. You’re going to network with many people, expand your efforts, learn new information and processes, and you’re going to find out that certain things work better for you individually while others don’t. Therefore, it’s important that you’re able to adapt to changes.

Be Honest

Always be completely honest when communicating with your customers, whether directly or through your content. You also want to mediate any user content on your sites to make sure that it is within guidelines for your benefit.

Honesty is very important because embellishing figures or product information is noticeable and will have a domino effect on your business in a negative direction.

That is it, those are five tips that will lead you to affiliate marketing success. Affiliate marketing is all about learning consistently about your market niche, targeted customers and products. Take the tips that you’ve learned here with you as you continue your affiliate marketing endeavors.

Creating A Solid Twitter Presence

Creating A Solid Twitter Presence

You want people to visit your site to make a purchase, but it has probably been a bit difficult. This is why you need to do everything you can to integrate Twitter into your marketing plan.

Having a few followers will do you no good since that means only a few people will have access to your content. This article will show you how to create a solid twitter presence.

Post some personal photos, interesting tips, and information

Post photos of yourself and some of the products you are offering. Many people will not follow anyone that does not have any photos.

The idea is that anyone who is real will not hesitate to post some pictures. Make sure that the photos you put are professional and they make you look positive.

The last thing you want is to post something that will cause people to doubt your ability to successfully run a business.

When people try to engage you in conversation, allow that to happen. People that are not following you will be able to see this exchange and it will make them feel better about you.

Many business owners try to get customers without taking their feelings into account. They ignore messages and spend most of their time touting their products.

If this is the way you present yourself on Twitter, you will have a very difficult time gaining a solid following.

Promote your twitter account

Promote your Twitter on your website and encourage people to share the link. If you have a good product or service, people will not hesitate to share this information with their friends.

You should think about offering others the opportunity to get incentives in exchange for referring others. This is a great way to build your number of followers in record time.

By the way, you should follow me on twitter @sekimarketing

Engage with influencers

There are many people that are considered top users on Twitter. They have a ton of followers and many of them trust the information they pass on.

These are the type of people you should try appealing to. If these users follow you, there is a good chance that others will follow suit.

The best way to engage these types of users is by approaching them with information you know will offer them something they need. It wouldn’t hurt for you to offer them some type of incentive.

Hold a contest

Hold a contest that requires people to follow you in order to qualify. This may seem like it is a bit underhanded, but it isn’t if you are perfectly clear about this from the beginning.

Most people understand the idea that you cannot get something for nothing, so they would have no problem following you in exchange for a chance to get a great prize.

Final words

That is it, those are tips that can help you to create a solid twitter presence. All of the information above should have you well on your way to increase the number of followers on your Twitter account.

The more the merrier since this will increase your chances of making a profit. While it may take some hard work to create the type of fan base you would like, it will be worth it once you see the profits come in.
