– Hey, come closer, check this out. We are here live at the
ClickBank headquarters and I've got a question. Have you ever thought about
wanting to maybe get started making an income online? Get started with affiliate marketing? Good, I need you to pay
very close attention because in the next 15 minutes, I'm gonna show you step-by-step how to get started making
money online today. (upbeat music) So you wanna get started
with affiliate marketing and there's a good chance
that if reviewing this video, you might be asking yourself,
what is affiliate marketing? And before we really sink our teeth into how to get started, what to do, I'm gonna give a broad overview of what affiliate marketing is.
And affiliate marketing,
it is just promoting and selling someone else's
product over the internet. So it's pretty simple and commissions range all
over the place, right? From 1%, all the way 90 plus, but let's just say you're
selling a product that's $100, you wanna promote that
product, you get your own link, your own special link, and you can put that on the internet. If someone clicks and buys from your link, you get a commission off that $100. So let's just say simple math
again, your commission is 70%. If I buy through your link, you're gonna make $70 off of that sale and you can do that as
many times as you want. And it's pretty simple and you may be again asking yourself, okay, that makes sense.
Now, where does ClickBank
come into the picture? A great question. So ClickBank is an affiliate
marketing retailer. We are a marketplace. So you may be looking
for things to promote, to get that commission. We actually have tens of thousands of products on our website that you can come find to promote yourself whether based of the
commission you wanna make or a category you want to sell in. So it might be a big
world, which it really is, but in terms of getting started, you can break it down into
these bite sized chunks and make it very simple and you can get started today. So now that you understand
what affiliate marketing is and what ClickBank is, come with me, let's take a peek under the hood and I'll walk you through what the inside of ClickBank looks like.
So as you can see my screen right here, we are on clickbank.com. Now, if you've never been here before, I'm gonna need you to go to the top right and click sign up, and you'll be prompted to
just do a couple of things and you can get an account created and started just in a few minutes. And if you do need any help with that, I'm going to go ahead and put a link here in the description, go ahead and click that and we have someone on our support team that'll gladly walk you
through step-by-step on how to get started. Now for me, I'm gonna go ahead and go in here and log into one of my accounts. And once you get in, you're gonna see your ClickBank dashboard. And this is where you'll
see all of your earnings and you can toggle from day to day and there's all kinds of features here, but what I'm really gonna highlight and show you is right down
here, our affiliate marketplace.
This is where we house those
tens of thousands of offers that I just talked about earlier and we have them all located right here. And once we're in here, this is where you can locate any offer that's currently inside ClickBank that you can start promoting
as soon as you want. So there are a couple of
different ways to find products, and I'm gonna go over my
two favorites right now. Now you can see down the left-hand side, there are tons of different categories that you can get into, we have offers inside each
one of these categories. So let's just say, kind of
in the health and fitness, e-business, check
e-business and e-marketing.
Now, as you can see, these results are sorted by rank. So that means the highest converting ones are in here right now, they're updated on a daily
basis and you can see, let's see the fast tracks. See this is an affiliate marketing course. There's one click wealth system, some of these in any of these, and you can see here, this gravity score, we just got to call it
our popularity score.
So it's gonna let you know how trending the offer is and how many people are
wanting to promote that. And it's something that
to keep a close eye on, as you're looking for
which one to promote, and you can see here, your
average commission per sale, what we talked about
earlier in this video. And if you want to start
promoting this offer, all you have to do, is just click this orange
button right here, promote, and that'll give you that special link that I talked about, that you can go and place anywhere.
Whether that be an email, on
your social media profile, on a website, blog, anything like that, wherever you can post a link,
you are welcome to do that. And if someone clicks that and completes a purchase, that's where you get
your commission, okay? Now let me show you my second favorite way to find something to promote. So if you see this magnifying glass here, on the top of the screen,
you can click that and boom, this shows you our top converting offers that are happening right
now inside ClickBank. And you can search them by rank, you can search them by the
average amount of commission. As you can see here, 3000 per sale, it's a pretty good pay day, and you can scroll, then again, check out
these gravity scores, see how popular they are, but for this, I'm gonna go back to rank.
And this is where I look
for products to promote when I'm looking to get
started finding a new offer, and you can see here
again in the category, health and fitness, health and fitness, there's one in spirituality, but most of these are in the health space. So when you're looking
to get through these, you're gonna want to look at two things, the average commission, the gravity score, and then again, if you'd
like to get started in a certain category,
you can do that there.
So if you follow one of these two ways, you're on your way to getting started. So let's go ahead and
select a product to promote and create that link
what I'm talking about. And let's just pick the top
converting one right here. This is Okinawa Flat Belly Tonic. So I'm gonna go ahead and I'm gonna click promote. Now you can see a hobbling generator. That's what we at ClickBank called this special link, a hop link, and to be frank, I really don't know why, but it's something that
stuck around since the 90s and let's just roll with it.
And we can see here that the
75% commission payout per sale, which is a great, great
commission percentage with an average payout of about 130, $140. Now to generate a hop link, you need an account nickname. So let's go ahead and
create one real quick, I had to do it from scratch because it's very, very easy. And we're gonna go back to
this ClickBank dashboard and I'm sure you remember
when we just logged in and we saw it here, and we went down and we
clicked the marketplace. We're gonna go to accounts, and I have one here, but let's just go ahead and create one. Now we want to be an affiliate because we are promoting
products for commission. Let's just name it YouTube,
nickname already exists, 2021, let's do 3400, okay. Let's just do, there we go, YouTube with two Es and 12 will do that.
This name is available. So let's go ahead and sign up. And that will appear right
here on our dashboard. Now what I'm gonna do,
is I'm going to copy that and come over here, account nickname. I'll just paste it right
there, generate hotlinks and vuala there we have it. I now have a link here that I can click if I'd like to copy it and now I'm able to paste
that wherever I'd like, and I can start earning commission. So now you've got your link and you just have one more thing to do, and that's get traffic. And that's the million dollar question because everybody always asks
us how to like get traffic. And we've got two ways that we'll dive into, we've got
the freeway or the paid way. And when I was first getting
started in affiliate marketing, it was described to me as this, you're on your way to
your destination, right? Everybody's got a goal
that they're after, okay? And there are basically two types of cars you can use to get to that goal.
You can drive a Toyota Corolla, okay? That's a great car, it's reliable and it's gonna get you
to where you wanna go, but it's at an affordable price and it might be a little bit
slower than some other cars. And if you want to go the other way, you can use a Ferrari and that's going to be
very, very expensive. And it's gonna get you
there a whole lot faster to your same destination. That's really the difference between free traffic and paid
traffic, because guess what? They accomplish the same thing, okay? We're all looking to provide value and to get sales, and that can be done mainly two ways, free traffic or paid traffic, okay? First we'll dive into free traffic. What is free traffic? How do you get it? So free traffic is really
gonna be based around content.
Think about posting your link in a blog, in your own website, writing a blog. Maybe if you like hang out on Reddit or inside Facebook groups, or different things that you can do to get clicks onto your
link and to get sales. Now remember, if somebody
clicks your hop link and makes a purchase, that's our 75% commission
with Flat Belly Tonic that we just made, okay? And if you really want
to learn a whole lot more about free traffic, click
the link in the description, because we've got a whole
series on how to dive in and plenty of different tactics that you can use to generate
traffic to your hop link that's not gonna cost you a dime. Now, if you want to go the paid route, it is gonna cost a little bit more, but like I mentioned, it can get you there a little bit faster. This is mainly through advertising and you can advertise on a
search engine like Google or Bing or on a social media
network, like Facebook, like YouTube, TikTok, anything like that to where you can pay to get your ad in front of somebody.
Now, the reason it costs
you a little bit more money, is because one, you have to
pay for the clicks obviously, but it's going to cost
you a little bit money as you start to learn this audience and what gets their attention. Because especially when you're
advertising on the internet, you are competing and you were
paying for that attention. And the eyeballs are gonna go to your ad and you need those people
to click on your ad so they come to your link and if they complete the purchase, you get the commission,
the vendor gets the sale.
So if you want to learn a little
bit more about paid traffic again, we've actually got a free series on our YouTube channel. So go ahead and click the link below and we'll have all of
our experts really go into how our top vendors
are doing that today. So I hope you're really excited and eager to start promoting
products on ClickBank and start making money
with affiliate marketing. And today we've done everything from creating a click bank account, navigating the ClickBank marketplace, finding a top converting offer, and then going through
ways to get traffic, to start promoting that link that you made to start getting commission on sales. And if you really, really wanna
sink your teeth into this, I got a couple of things, I want to share with
you from my experience, is that we've laid this
process out, right? It's pretty simple in theory, but that doesn't mean that it's easy.
And I need to let you know that you have to be willing to in a way, practice and fail
to get great at something. I think that there should be
a lot more people out there making a ton more money, but they're not willing to
be bad at it long enough in order to be great. We have thousands of affiliates that are making seven to
eight figures per year that are living dream lifestyles and it's been a pleasure to watch because they really went
through that plateau and pressure builds diamonds, right? And I wanted to let you know that as long as you're
not willing to give up, that you're almost in a way
guaranteeing your success if you just don't quit.
And you would be very surprised of what you can accomplish
over a year of just practicing. And if this is something
that is resonating with you, just like it resonated with me and a lot of others that
have watched this video, then I wanna show you something
that we have at ClickBank and that's called Spark. It's our full comprehensive
education platform because we are invested into
the success of our affiliates. So come check this out, we're in our Spark dashboard and we've really got education courses from our certification course, I'll click on this real quick. And we really dive into so many things, even from your mindset and a bunch of things,
a seven day challenge, where actually, I got my
first sale in seven days if you wanna come check it out, but so many different just
aspects of affiliate marketing from basic vocabulary, all the way up to scaling
paid traffic campaigns.
And then with Facebook ads,
we've got Spark Campfire, that's a weekly Q&A session to ensure that you never get stuck, that you can come ask mentors for advice, people that have sold hundreds
of millions of dollars worth of products on the internet. And we've got so many
different types of trainings. You can really come in here, and guess what? I've got to link, So if you
want to try it for free, I wanted to extend that offer to you. You got seven days to come
in here, sink your teeth, check it out, come into the community and a rising tide lifts all ships, right? And that's something that we really wanted to bring together, was just a congregation of people who are all after the same goal and that's the life of their dreams.
What's so many people have
come through ClickBank, they've been able to do, and we've been able to
help thousands of people just this year, generate
their first sale on ClickBank with our Spark community
and our Spark education. So like I'd mentioned, if you love to sink your teeth into this and check it out, we've
got a seven day free trial, risk-free, go ahead and check it out. But if you'd like to
consume all of our content on our YouTube channel, we've got hundreds and hundreds of hours that we've got links in the bio and a bunch of videos on our channel that you're gonna get
a ton of value out of. And you can really get started by learning that as well, if you'd like. If you got value out of this video, go ahead and give us a thumbs up, let us know you're ready to
