How to Make Money with Clickbank?

Clickbank is one of the most popular networks for affiliate beginners and advanced publishers to make money. It’s free to join and there’s no screening process, no limit cap or complicated metrics. It’s basically a simplified affiliate network, open to anyone that wants to give it a shot. After signing up you can immediately generate your hoplinks and start sharing them with your audience or creating ad campaigns for them.

With thousands of products to choose from on ClickBank, it can feel overwhelming deciding which ones to promote. In our research we found the best products have always been the ones to do with health, losing weight, making money or relationships. When it comes to promotable categories, these are known as the big money makers, and it’s where most people spend their money. Plus, they offer solutions to problems that people want solved fast and that leads to impulse buys from the final consumer.

There’s several ways you can start making money with ClickBank:

  • Build an audience around your Facebook or Instagram page that focuses on the segments and products you want to promote
  • Start a Blog, Youtube channel, product review website or other type of content channel and offer Clickbank products to your readers and audience.
  • Run targeted Ads with Facebook, Instagram, Google Ads or Microsoft Bing Ads, and connect our We Can Track Integration that will allow you to push the sales data into your campaigns manager.

How to select the best offers in Clickbank?

Clickbank provides publishers with a lot of information to help find and choose the right product and in their product list you will find metrics such as:

  • Average %/sale: the percentage of the product price that publishers receive as a sales commission.
  • Initial $/sale: the average revenue you can make per sale
  • Average rebill total: the average amount you will make as a commission as a result of rebills (i.e. resale of the product, monthly recurring subscriptions, etc)
  • Average %/rebill: the percentage of rebills paid on average.

 

You should also consider as an important metric the Gravity score. Gravity is given to determine the number of publishers that have sold that product within the past 12 weeks. This could be a great indicator of how well a product sells and how high the market demand for that product is. However, don’t only base your decision solely on Gravity, for example, a new product may not have a high Gravity score, but could be the new hottest product to sell.
