4 Clickbank Marketing Tips to Improve Your Success As a Clickbank Affiliate

If you’re interested in affiliate marketing or have hung around online marketing forums much, you’ve probably heard of Clickbank. Maybe you’ve even tried your own hand at marketing some of the products on Clickbank, with little or no success. There are literally thousands of average people just like you and me who make thousands, and even tens of thousands of dollars promoting Clickbank products month in and month out, so it is possible to do. How?

Here are a few Clickbank marketing tips that will help you increase your conversions and make more money with one of the most popular retailers of digital products online today.

Choose a product with lower gravity. Many new affiliates are tempted to go after the “big sellers,” those products that every other affiliate is promoting. This will make it harder for a newbie to be successful, as potential customers are conditioned to seeing the emails, ads and other promotional tools used to promote these products. By selling a product that has a gravity lower than 60, there is less competition from other affiliates, and you have a better chance of getting noticed.

Avoid sending your prospects directly to the product sales page. The biggest majority of affiliates make this mistake. It’s much better to “warm up” prospective clients to the idea of buying by having them sign up to your email list. With a list of subscribers, you have the opportunity to build trust and let potential customers get to know you and the products you recommend. You can gently recommend products occasionally in your email messages, and those who have come to know you in a sense through your emails will feel more comfortable buying.

Create a page designed to pre-sell to potential customers. Sending a visitor directly to a sales page is like “cold-calling.” People simply do not buy a product on the spur of the moment, without any persuasion to do so. A pre-sell page can review the good and the bad about a product, offer your opinion as to the effectiveness of the product or relate your own experience, and make your visitor feel like he/she is armed with the information necessary to make a smart buying decision. With a pre-sell page, you have the ability to gently “prod” your visitor along the buying path.

Market a niche that you enjoy. Being successful as a Clickbank affiliate involves a lot of writing if your want to be successful, in the way of product reviews, web pages, blog posts, articles, etc. If you choose a niche you aren’t really familiar or comfortable with, that writing is going to be tough – and it’s going to slow your progress, because you simply won’t have the motivation to write. By choosing a niche you actually are an “expert” in or enjoy, your work will be so much easier, and enjoying what you do is half the battle! You’ll have the drive to do all of those daily marketing tasks that are essential to your success.

You may or may not ever become a “super” affiliate, and hopefully you will. However, by taking a few of these Clickbank marketing tips and putting them to use in your online business, I think you will see a much better level of success!

Technical Analysis Stock – Learning How to Evaluate the Market

Many people have been paying attention to the way that the recent economic crisis has affected the housing and credit markets, as well as the stock market itself. There were scores of people who thought they had charted a path for long term wealth by investing their money in certain companies that were said to be too big to fail. However, when things began to get tough, and people began to get stingy with their stock market purchases, it became obvious that there is always risk involved when you buy into a public company. If you’re interested in getting a fresh start in the market, and only bothering with stocks that have the potential for long term success, you’ve got to get a firm grasp of technical analysis stock.

The first thing that you must understand is that there are two main methods for evaluating the stock market, and determining whether buying or selling is the right choice at any particular point in time: fundamental analysis and technical analysis stock. Investors should be aware of the different characteristics of both strategies, and plan on implementing some elements of both into what will become their own personal style of investing. Most professional analysts will tell you that these two approaches are each other’s polar opposites, because they are based on very different assumptions about what drives the daily market fluctuations.

If you’re interested in technical analysis stock, you’ll need to be committed to constant tracking and monitoring of stock charts using specialized software programs and online tools. These tools will be connected electronically to the stock index of your choice, and will register trade prices as well as opening and closing prices for the day. Technical analysts look at these charts over time and inspect them for trends and patterns that can provide clues about whether a stock is likely to increase or decrease in price.

The basic assumptions of technical analysis stock are simple: First, market prices have been discounted to reflect, relevant information like natural disasters, political pressure, or public psychology about a company, so extra research isn’t needed to account for them. Second, prices like to move in trends, which will continue a change in the market interrupts them. Third, technical analysts firmly believe that history repeats itself, meaning that past occurrences can be used to predict market action in the future. Although nothing can allow you to predict the future absolutely, technical analysis will allow you to make educated guesses.

The 80-20 Rule of Marketing

Ever hear of the Pareto’s Rule? Well, Pareto was an Italian economist who in 1906 created a mathematical formula to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that twenty percent of the people owned eighty percent of the wealth.

It has since been applied to everything from defects in manufactured goods to customers. And it seems to be pretty accurate.

In marketing the 80/20 rule means that twenty percent of your activities will result in eighty percent of your profits.

Knowing that fact should have a profound effect on how you manage your time when it comes to building your online business. If you believe as I and many others do that list building is one of the most important steps in building a successful online business, then that is what you should spend most of time concentrating on.

It seems with so much information out there on the Internet that it is very easy to become distracted. How many Internet marketing newsletters do you currently receive via email?

I just did a quick count and came up with 27! Twenty seven different marketing related newsletters. I admit to being an information junkie and I guess admitting a problem is always the first step, but I don’t want to miss out on anything going on in the IM field.

The danger lies in the fact that there are many different strategies for operating an Internet business and many of these newsletters deal with different facets of the business. However, if I am not careful, I tend to get distracted by some great idea and lose my focus. When that happens, my results always suffer.

So, my suggestion to you is to choose a marketing strategy and stick to it until you see results. It doesn’t mean that you can never try different techniques, it just means that you need to develop a plan and then stick to it.

If you don’t know where you are going, you will never get there.

Developing a business plan and creating a daily marketing task list is just one of the topics that I cover in detail in my Internet Marketing Master Course. IMMC lays out a step by step blueprint for developing your Internet business. When you finish the 12 week course you will have a fully functioning, cash generating business and the ability to create as many cash cows as you want.
