How To Promote Clickbank Products Without a Website Step By Step

As an affiliate, you can use blogging, email marketing, social media, product review pages, and many other ways to promote products and services online. In this post, I will show you how to promote Clickbank products without a website or blog step by step as an affiliate to make money online.

How To Promote Clickbank Products Without a Website Step By Step

First, What Is An Affiliate?

An affiliate is someone who uses an “affiliate link” to send website traffic to a vendor’s site that sells a product. If a sale is made upon that visit, or within a set time of that initial visit, the affiliate receives a commission (a pre-determined portion of the sale price).

In the Clickbank, you’ll receive an affiliate commission if the prospect buys within 60 days of the initial visit. These are referred to as 60-day cookies (a cookie is the internet term for keeping track of website visit history).

Why Clickbank?

The reason I recommend Clickbank is that they approve almost everyone to promote their products and they will pay you every Wednesday. If your country is not on the list of Clickbank-approved countries, you can check out alternatives to Clickbank here.

But the information from this page can be applied to promote any affiliate product from any company, just remove the word Clickbank and put your affiliate network name and you will be set.

Without any further due, here is how you can promote Clickbank products step by step without a website.

Step 1: Create a Clickbank account

The first step is to create a Clickbank account, if do you have one you can skip this step.

To create a Clickbank account go to:

https://accounts.clickbank.com/signup/

You will find a page like this one below

create account

Just fill in all the required information, you need to put your real information, including your real name, your real address, and your real email (I know it sounds obvious but I know people who put fake information), this will save you from troubles when Clickbank pay you in the future.

Then click next, and fill up your correct bank information, after finalizing everything you will have to confirm your email and you are set to go to the next step.

Step 2: Pick a product to promote

After finalizing the creation of your Clickbank account you will need to pick a good product to promote.

All you need to do is to login into your Clickbank account and then click marketplace, which will take you directly to the Clickbank marketplace.

marketplace

In the marketplace you will find a search bar, if do you have an idea of what niche do you want to promote just type it in the space ( for example I was going to promote keto diet products so I typed ‘keto’ if you don’t know yet what niche to promote just leave it in blank and then click the search icon as shown in the image below.

marketplace

When the search results appear, click in the drop menu and choose sort by gravity.

gravity

For those who don’t know, Clickbank gravity is an estimated matrix that indicates the number of an affiliate who has made a sale promoting a product in the last 12 weeks, for each affiliate who made a sale the product is given a number between 0.1 and 1 depending on when the sale was made.

All you need to do after that is looking for a product that you do want to promote, for these are the things I look for from the product.

Gravity

Most people will tell you that you need to promote products with the highest gravity, Personally, I think this is a myth because higher gravity does not necessarily mean it is a good product and because everyone and his dog preach about promoting high gravity products most affiliates especially new ones tend to promote these products and create unnecessary competition also Clickbank gravity can be manipulated.

I will say choose a product between the gravity of 10 to 50 if this is your first Clickbank promotion stick with between 20-30 if there is no product in that range you can go a little bit low or high depending on the niche.

Initial Sale

This is the amount of money you will make when people buy a certain product by using your affiliate link, I tend to choose products with initial sales equal to or above 20. This means if I make at least one sale per day I will be making at least $20 a day, it is not a bad thing.

Avg $/sale

This is the amount of money you will make on average for every sale you generate if the Initial sale amount=Avg $/sale this means that the product does not offer any Upsales or people just don’t buy them.

Avg Rebill Total

If this number is $0.00 means the products do not have recurring payments so you will not make any money after the initial sale, if it is bigger than 0 means it has a recurring income.

Avg %rebill

This number represents the average affiliate commission percentage for a sale, including only the rebill commission.

For me, the most important factors are gravity and initial sale, for that reason that is why I selected the second product in this list (see the image below).

But that is not all, now you have selected the product you need to check out their sales page or sales video, you need to make sure that it is a nice and clean sales page/video, no link to other websites, no gimmicks, or false claim and you need to ask yourself this question, I would buy this product for myself? if the answer is yes and you have money then buy it, if you don’t have money but the answer is yes you can also promote it, but if the answer is no, don’t promote it and chose another product.

It is always good practice to buy and use the product yourself before promoting it.

Step 3: Get your affiliate link

So now you did all the work and you found your product, you need to get your affiliate link, this is easy, just click the promote button (the one below Avg $/sale and this popup will appear in a new window.

how to choose the best clickbank product to promote

In, enter your information part you should have your Clickbank nickname there, if you clicked from inside your Clickbank account it should be there by default if it is not there just type it, make sure it is correct so that you can be credited for the sales you will be generating.

Also, I will encourage you to enter your tracking ID, this is optional but it is useful because it will tell you where the sale came from and it will help you to decide which traffic generating method to focus on, in this article, I am going to use the blog commenting method (spoiler alert) that is why I put BC for blog commenting, you can put anything you want there.

Ather that click generate HopLink and Clickbank will generate one of the ugliest URLs you will ever see, just click on the icon on the right-hand side of your link to copy it and paste somewhere you can remember like in notepad and save it in your computer.

Step 4: Cloak your Link

After setting up everything you will get your affiliate link, I do not recommend directly promote this link, I will recommend cloaking it.

In order to cloak your affiliate link, I will recommend using bit.ly. Just go to bit.ly, create an account (it is free ).

Click on the create button, copy the long ugly affiliate link that you got from Clickbank and paste it where it says PASTE LONG URL, then click create, that is it you will get the link like this one. bit.ly/37zF3mW

Now let us move to the last step of this tutorial, to drive traffic.

Step 5: Use Instagram to drive free traffic

At the moment of writing this, I think Instagram is the best traffic source to promote Clickbank affiliate products without a website.

The first step to generate traffic using Instagram is to create the Instagram page, all you need to do is go to Instagram and create a new page.

Give the page a name related to what do you want to promote, using the same example I could call this page keto diet plan or keto recipes,  but I decided to call it diet plans hero.

For a user name I recommend using the same name unless it is taken then you will need to become creative, avoid having numbers or wild symbols, which create mistrust.

For profile photos, I recommend using your own photo (it increases trust, people reach, and buy more if they think this page is created with a real person), but also you can use a logo. 

On a website, it is the place where you are going to add the cloaked link you did in step 4 above.

On the bio, just tell people what is your page is about, for me, I am sending them to an affiliate page that is giving them recipes to eat healthy using the keto diet.

For example, you can say I help people to lose weight, if do you want to lose weight click the link below.

For me, I provide tips for healthy eating, then I offer them a guide for healthy eating and a call to action so that they can click on the link, that is it.

This is how the page looks

After setting your page, all you need to do is to find bigger pages in your niche, check out what they post, what hashtags they use, use the same hashtags and post content similar to them.

Also, you can get involved in their posts, by replying to people who are commenting on those posts, some of these people with start to follow you and your page will start to grow.

When posting content to your page make sure to use hashtags and use the call to action, click the link in the bio(you are encouraging people to click your affiliate link), in most of your posts that are related to the keto diet.

How much money I can make from this method?

There is no guarantee how much money you can make, but in my case, I make a sale between 40 and 100 visitors to my affiliate link, sometimes I make more, it depends on many factors.

The product I am promoting now I make on average $50 per sale (not in the example provided above this is still new), that is that I just need 2 sales per day to reach the $100 per day mark.

Is this long-term?

Yes, it is, you can grow your Instagram page to thousands of followers and you can use this method to make at least $100 per day.

If do you want to increase your earning potential you will need to start building your list and probably creating an authority blog yourself.

Final word 

This is how you can promote Clickbank products without a website or blog, there are many methods you can use, I will keep posting them here.
