    Last week we talked about what an affiliate is and how affiliate programs can help you promote your products. You can also become an affiliate for partnering products by creating relationships in your and complementary industries. This week we’re going to talk about Clickbank- the most well-known and respected affiliate database available.

    Clickbank has a whole range of categories and industries to affiliate with. You can choose products to advertise and you can submit your products to be promoted by other affiliates. Clickbank has an easy to use format and the submission process is straight forward. There is only a one-time fee of $50 when you submit your first product. Because everything is done through digital products there is minimal overhead cost. This means you get more in your pocket and less goes to the middle man.

    Once you have selected affiliate products to promote it’s time to decide how you will promote them. This can be done through your website, blog, online forums and email marketing. Always have all of these linked to your social media accounts for maximum exposure.

    A membership is free and gives you the option to choose products to promote and a vendor account gives you the ability to submit products to be promoted. When you prepare to submit a digital product you need to have a few things in place first. These include:

    • Pitch page
    • Thank you page
    • Pre-set commission rate
    • Hop link
    • Pay the Clickbank initial fee
    • Wait for your product to be approved

    These are all things you need to have in place to sell your product anyway, so it should only take a short period of time to get your product submitted for approval.

    This wraps up affiliates. Next week we’re going to take a look at the basic online marketing tools you can use to boost business and increase your online presence.
