clickbank affiliates

If you are a new affiliate marketer, you may be wondering what products you should promote first. Well the answer overwhelmingly has been products sold through the ClickBank network. There are very good reasons to begin your affiliate marketing career by promoting these products and why it's considered the best affiliate marketing program for beginners. Specifically, the network is easy to join, the commissions are high and ClickBank allows for instant gratification.

As a new affiliate marketer, the first thing you need to do is become an affiliate, also known as a publisher for either a merchant or a affiliate network. There are literally hundreds of affiliate networks and thousands of independent affiliate programs you can join. The reason to begin with ClickBank is because they are very newbie friendly. There's no real pre-qualification or years of experience required in order to join their program.

As a new affiliate marketer, the first thing you will want to see is that commission check. ClickBank offers commission up to 75% of products sold. This is in contrast to many physical product affiliate networks that pay closer to 10% commissions. When you're just starting out, it certainly helps to receive a higher commission on items that are priced relatively lower than physical products are. This of course is not always the case, but in general, it's a fair assumption.

Another benefits for new affiliate marketers, is that ClickBank products are typically downloadable or instant access. What this means is it caters to the "instant gratification" nature of many shoppers (myself included)! The searcher completes the sale and gains instant access to his or her product and you are credited with the commission. This model works extremely well for all parties concerned.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that ClickBank is only for the new affiliate marketer. There are literally hundreds of internet marketers who make 6, 7 and 8 figures per year primarily as ClickBank affiliates. Hopefully that gives you some idea of what is really possible in this industry!

So there you have it. If you are a new affiliate marketer and want to get your career off to a good start with some fast commissions, you should definitely make ClickBank your first stop when looking for good affiliate offers to promote.

making money with youtube

I know what you are thinking; make a career on the internet, are you kidding me? No, I'm not joking around at all. YouTube is a fantastic way to make a living. However, you must be someone who doesn't care if they are exposed on the internet.

You also have to be very funny, and interesting. Your audience has to be wanting more, every time they see you. Although, building up a giant fan base will take time, in the long run it can be very beneficial.

To make money on YouTube you first must become a partner. To become a partner you have to have a few thousand subscribers, and thousands watching your videos. This may seem difficult to attain, but if people like your material then you can get views easily. When you become a partner you usually get 2-5$ per 1000 views.

This may not seem like much, but if you are getting 2 million views it adds up fast! You also can make money off of Google AdSense advertisements that people can click on while watching your videos.

Some very successful YouTubers are SxePhil, NigaHiga, WHATHEBUCKSHOW, Fred, ShaneDawsonTv and many more. These individuals have made a fortune off of YouTube. By this I mean a very comfortable living. Some of these members have made anywhere from 500 000$ to over 1 000 000$! Fred Figglehorn a.k.a. Lucas Cruikshank is the most successful YouTuber, he has made over 1 million dollars and he is only 16 years old! My point is that if you want to become a YouTube star and make a living entertaining people you can! With hard work, and patience you can be well on your way to a great living. However, I must stress that you don't put your whole life into YouTube, have a backup plan that you can always fall back on.

What is Affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is when you take a service or product found on the internet and promote it to someone else using a special link.

When a visitor reads your website, article, or blog, they click on your special link and are taken to a page on the internet where they can purchase the service or product you recommended.

Now, there are about a GAZILLION products and services to promote on the internet--from cell phones, to handbooks, to ebooks, to web hosting and beyond.

When someone uses your link to purchase a product or service you receive a certain percentage of the sale.

Obviously, the higher the cost of the product or service you recommend, the more money you make. In addition, some services like web hosting and membership sites sell monthly products. That means, if someone you recommend signs up for these services, you not only receive a commission on the first month, but EVERY MONTH AFTER THAT.
