Clickbank Is Still Leading
Clickbank is still the leading affiliate network for electronic products, or more accurately, for products that are delivered electronically, such as downloadable eBooks, or online video training courses.
Being an affiliate marketer is not as easy as people make it seem. You have to work hard at it and concentrate on creating enough of a splash to be noticed.
If you are using search engine optimization to get traffic to your affiliate offers, then you are going to need a lot of content to get enough eyes to see the offer.
Marketers do this in a couple of ways. Some concentrate on creating authority sites that are highly rated by search engines and demand to be read. These authority sites concentrate on a niche, but can cover a multitude of topics.
On the other hand, there are marketers that prefer to create highly-optimized websites for each of the topics they cover. Their focus is so narrow that they concentrate more at a keyword level than at a topic level. They are also highly rated but for a particular keyword, not for a niche or for a topic.
In either case, massive content is the key to substainable streams of income.
If you are at all familiar with Clickbank, you will already know about the recommendations for selecting products to promote based on gravity. Thats fine and good, but what about being a true curator and digging through the thousands of offers in Clickbank to really be able to offer something of value to your customers.
If you cannot afford to buy all the products you recommend, at least make an effor to look for reviews of the products from people that have actually tested them. Safeguard your integrity as an internet marketer.
Reasearching the Topics
You will typically gather offers based on particular niches. You can do your research directly on Clickbank or by using one of the many paid products that use the Clickbank datafeed to do a statistical analysis of the offers are recommend product to you based on sales.
Be careful making decisions based on sales alone. Do your own research. Check out the sales letters, the reviews, and whenever possible the products themselves. It may be that the creator of a certain product is a terrible marketer buy a great product creator.
Actually, there are marketers that seek out products that are selling badly in order to buy them from the creator and market the products themselves.
Do your research completely. I have found some gems lying low. I have also known of product creators asking affiliates how they are able to send so much traffic to their own offers, since they themselves cannot. You cannot blame the affiliate for not revealing his methods; otherwise, he will have the product creator as his competitor.
Creating a Database First
I like to do my research first, independent of the content creation. As I research, I create databases that allow me to work very effeciently when Im creating content.
By not jumping back and forth between tasks, you become more proficient at what you are doing and can create your own quality control that helps you to check the accuracy of your data more than if you were jumping around between tasks.
