Clickbank and Paydotcom are websites which bring together people who want to sell products and the people who want to sell it for them. There are many ways of making money on the Internet and this is perhaps one of the easiest and most lucrative. There are many information products on both these sites and you have to choose the ones you would like to sell. When you make a sale you get a commission that can range anywhere from 5% to 80% of the price of the product.
After you have registered with these sites you become an Affiliate and are provided with a unique ID for yourself. When you choose a product to sell you are given personalized link through which all your sales for that product will be tracked. You are also given a web-page which has the details about the product and the ordering form and so on. What’s even better is that all this is completely free. Only when you make a sale a small part of what you earn as commission is deducted by Clickbank and Paydotcom as their service charges.
The first step towards a successful career as an Affiliate marketer is to choose the right product. Initially you can avoid digital products where the markets have been saturated like Making Money Online, Hosting of Websites and so on. You can check out the latest trends at Google Trends and other similar sites to get an idea of a niche market which can be lucrative.
The second step and the main one is to actually sell these products or product you have selected. Well to put it simply, Online selling is neither easy nor is it difficult. You just need to know the best way you can effectively advertise and promote your product. There are many ways to do this and most involve spending money while others are free.
One of the ways is called Article Marketing, where you write and submit articles to different article directories. These articles have a resource box at the end where you can provide the link to your website which is actually selling the product. The article should be made interesting enough for the reader to click on the link given in the resource box.
PPC (Pay Per Click) is an efficient way of advertising where you pay only when somebody clicks on your ad. The cost effectiveness of this type of advertising has to be looked into before you invest totally on such campaigns.
Another way of effective Affiliate marketing is to set up an interesting blog. If you set in motion any interesting topic conversation, people will be interested in visiting your blog and posting their comments. You can insert the links to your website at the correct places and the blog should not look like you are trying to advertise any product.
Your website also should be built on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) principles so that you attract the maximum traffic. More than 80% people who use the Internet, use search engines to find what they are looking for. If your website is search engine optimized, then it will rank in the first page of the search results and there are more chances of people visiting your site.
