That’s the question I saw in a Facebook group yesterday. The person said something like:
“I’ve taken the first steps to getting started with affiliate marketing: I’ve signed up to Clickbank, what are my next steps?”
And here’s what I would say:
Clickbank is a good place to start, especially if you’re on a low budget and have no experience in affiliate marketing.
So, once you’ve signed up (it’s free) and have your affiliate ID, the next step is to find a product to promote…
BUT, before you do that, I suggest you decide on a niche. You need to know what you’re going to be talking about! It’s not the same if you’re in the dog training niche or the fitness niche, right?
So, start by thinking about what you want to talk about and who you want to attract.
Pick something you know about or want to learn about.
Once you’ve picked a niche, search Clickbank for a relevant product. You might know of one already, that you’ve used yourself – that’s even better!
Check offers out by clicking on the “affiliate page” in the Clickbank marketplace. You’ll learn all about the offer, the commissions you can make, the free resources they give you to help promote the product.
I suggest you buy the product yourself and test it out, so you know what it’s about. It’s always easier to speak of something when we’ve tried it out ourselves, isn’t it?
Anyway, once you’ve decided on the product to promote, get your affiliate links (again, you get that from the affiliate page).
You’ll then have to send traffic to these links.
Now for traffic, there are so many different ways you can do it, it’s impossible for me to go into all the details. But I suggest you pick ONE platform where to build some relevant content.
You can keep it very simple. You can simply have an Instagram account, or a TikTok channel, or a blog. But you’re going to have to build some content, to attract your audience.
If you have a budget, then you can use paid advertising methods too, of course. You can create a Facebook business page and create ads. You can buy solo ads traffic. You can create YouTube ads.
With paid traffic, however, I suggest you learn how to do it the right way, or you risk losing a considerable amount of money – which is not what we want, right?
That’s it, in a nutshell… GIVE IT TIME – you probably won’t get sales right away. You need to build an audience. But stay consistent and it will happen!
