Getting Started With Clickbank Affiliate Marketing
Clickbank is a popular payment processor that is very popular with sellers of digital products such as eBooks or software. Affiliates also love it because the products sold trough Clickbank usually have very generous affiliate programs. Most of them offer commissions of 50% or more. Another advantage of Clickbank is that its marketplace shows you which products are actually selling, so you have a better chance of finding an affiliate product that converts well.
Most people who do Clickbank affiliate marketing take on of two approaches. They either use a Pay Par Click program, such as Google AdWords, to promote the product or write articles and submit them to popular article directories like EzineArticles.com. Both methods are effective and have their advantages and disadvantages.
Pay Per Click (or PPC for short) is usually not recommended for beginning affiliate marketers because of the relatively high learning curve and the expense involved. Still it can be a very effective way to promote Clickbank products as an affiliate. If you are interested in learning about PPC marketing we recommend you read a good ebook on the topic or visit the popular internet marketing forum the Warrior Forum.
Article marketing is generally the best way to get started. While it takes a lot more work than PPC, the main advantage is that you can do it for free. Just do some research on low-competition keywords for the topic of the product you will be promoting. Then write an article for each keyword on your list.
