Today we will explore further, the possible ways to have a job at home as an Affiliate Marketer. There is no cost to becoming an affiliate — actually, they are happy to have you on board selling their product. Some even give YOU the larger share of the profits.
So where does one start because not all products are in demand and not all of those that are, will appeal to your comfort-zone. By that I mean would you be happy selling the latest enhancement for men or a kit for simple spell-casting? Maybe not; but I did promise to show you how to find the best of the best on ClickBank, become an Affiliate Marketer and take you a little bit further towards earning money from home.
Joining ClickBank is free. You use their sign-up button and fill it out as a promoter. When you return to the ClickBank site after confirming your membership, click on “marketplace” at the top of the page. This will offer you the various categories. After choosing one, you will note it expands to a more defined selection.
After you have settled on a category, we will look at two very important stats: The two most important numbers here are “grav” and “avg % sale”. The abbreviated “grav” is the number of readers or prospects who are gravitated to this program, and the “avg % of sale” is how many sales are made by affiliates like yourself; We like these statistics both to be as high as possible.
Once you have made your selection you can click on the title and read the promo page to see if it is professionally written, and has a good “call to action” for the prospect to open his wallet. If all meets with your approval, you would then click on the “promote” button and get your affiliate-Hop link-code that you will use every time you offer this program to someone.
Your only task is to get traffic to that “promo page”… not easy, but we’ll have some choices. Always use your hop-link-code insuring that if a sale is made, you will earn the commission.
Using our hop-link code, we will place ads, write articles, or blog as we spread the word about your new affiliate product, and talk about it on social networks. The more people you send to that Promo-Page and buy the product, the more money you will make.
I must say here in all honesty that ClickBank has been paying its affiliates now since 1998. Their retail outlet of more than 17,000 digital-product vendors and 110,000 active affiliate marketers is a record hard to beat. ClickBank makes a sale somewhere in the world every three seconds.
In our next article I will cover various ways to drive traffic to your affiliate website’s promo-page, and perhaps we can generate a sale or two for your first endeavor. Thus far – So far, as promised we have not had to spend any money. Promoting your product will necessitate free-or-fee choices. You might want to think about a low-budget you can afford to spend on this new adventure.
