Thank you for stopping by to read how to make money on ClickBank. This is a kind of personal case study for me, and I'm going to tell you:
- how I got started
- my results so far (really good and really fast!)
- how you can get started
If you want to learn how to make money on ClickBank, the quick and easy way (you don't even need a website for this strategy), then keep reading.
We don't need to dilly-dally anymore, so let's just dive into it!
How I Got Started making Money on ClickBank
This site that you're on, ChristinaPiccoli.com is an affiliate marketing website. Affiliate marketing is a way to make money online where you sell other people's products for a commission.
Since you know about ClickBank, you likely also know about affiliate marketing. But, if it's something that's still new to you, you can check out my free guide, How To: Affiliate Marketing for Beginners.
ClickBank is an affiliate marketplace. It's where people go to put their products so that affiliates can then promote them, and it's where affiliate marketers can go to find products to promote.
Because my site is all about affiliate marketing, I review a lot of different ClickBank offers. But that's not how I got started with making money with ClickBank.
I don't focus on many ClickBank products on this site because many of the ones I review just aren't that great. (There are great products on ClickBank though.)
However, when reviewing these products, I keep seeing people showing their ClickBank stats again and again.
And I decided that I also wanted to have ClickBank stats.
The strategy that I'm using started with this Income Profits Review.
The product itself isn't that good (told ya), but there was an interesting case study in it that put me on this path to making ClickBank money.
Let me show you my results so far...
My ClickBank Results so Far
I just started with this strategy on Thursday, July 18.
You can see that I made money on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. (It's Sunday, July 21 at the time of this writing.)
I started on Thursday, and made a sale each day after so far.
Of course, I can't guarantee that you'll have the same results or any results at all. There are plenty of factors involved with this.
In this business, you need to take action so you can learn and you also may need to take some risks. Again, that's how you learn.
The Path to making This Work
Here's the path that I took which lead me to these results:
- Saw the case study from Income Profits
- Learned that this involves creating ads on Bing and direct linking
- Learned that you need to track the results for less ad spend and better ROI
- Signed up for tracking (more about this below)
- Started watching YouTube training videos
- Took action with creating ads
- Saw results right away!
It honestly took me a little time (not much, maybe a couple of hours) to learn about how to do this and how to track. Then it only takes maybe 30 minutes to set up a campaign in Bing.
This is the quickest and easiest $192.15 I've made online so far.
And it'll only get better from here!
However, there are some risks. Let's talk about the pros and cons of this strategy and then I'll tell you how to get started yourself if you're interested.
Pros and Cons of This Strategy
This isn't a perfect way to do things. There are no perfect ways to do things. It's just one of many, many ways to make an income online.
With that said, let's talk about the pros and cons.
- Fast to set up
- Quick results if done correctly
- Really easy to do
- No website needed
- Will need to spend money on Bing ads
- Not every affiliate program lets you do direct linking
- Can end up spending more money than you make
- Need a tracking system and learn how to use it
I want to mention that this is a good side strategy. I wouldn't use this to create a lasting, consistent stream of passive income. For that, I urge you to check out my #1 recommendation to learn affiliate marketing.
This is just an extra way to make money, or to test different offers that you can then use for your main income stream.
Also, because I did spend money on advertising, that's not $192 in profit. (Although, I am profitable. The main idea is to stay profitable and then increase your Return on Investment ROI as you gain information from your tracking.)
P.S. This strategy only works with Bing Ads, as Google does not allow direct linking at all.
How YOU Can Get Started with This Method
This is still a fairly new technique for me, so I am not an expert by any means. But there are experts out there who really know what they're doing and I'll help point you to a couple of videos that I watched that walk you through the process step by step.
First, here's what you'll need to get started:
- A Microsoft Ads (AKA Bing Ads) account. This is free to set up, and you'll just follow their instructions on how to do that.
- A ClickBank account. This is also free and very easy to set up.
- Tracking Software. I use and recommend ClickMagick. They have a 14-day free trial so you can check it out. I highly recommend reading through their free Tracking Guide.
- Some free training on YouTube
(P.S. That's an affiliate link for ClickMagick. If you sign up using my link, I'll earn a little commission. That's my job and what I'm trying to teach you to do too. 😉 You won't pay any more, and I also really appreciate it as it keeps my family afloat.)
That's it! That's all you need to get started. Just a side note that you will be paying for ads, so you'll need a little income to make this work.
The good news is you can start off as small or as big as you want. You can start with $5 a day in ad spend, or $100. (I am doing $10 right now per campaign just so you get an idea...)
Here are some training videos that helped me:
(Note: These guys all have slightly different strategies and some buy domain names to use with this technique. You can do it that way, but I personally haven't tried that yet.)
That should get you started off nicely.
Comment down below if you end up using this strategy and let me know your results. I'd love to hear how it's working for you!
I hope my personal case study has helped you to learn how to make money at ClickBank - the quick and easy way. If you're brand new to affiliate marketing, I wouldn't suggest this strategy to start off with right away. Instead, I recommend you learn the whole affiliate marketing process first.
My #1 recommendation to learn affiliate marketing will take you through the entire process step-by-step. Do not skip ahead to this ClickBank strategy before you know what you're doing a little bit! I don't want you to lose money. Instead, learn how to do this the right way and then branch out. Over 155 people have already joined with me this year. Join free and see why!
