There is a misconception that you need a blog or website to make money on Clickbank. Even though I believe you should have a blog, certainly, you can make money without one.
You can use blogging, email marketing, social media, product review pages, and many other ways to promote products and services online as an affiliate. In this post, I will show you how to promote Clickbank products without a website as an affiliate to make money online.
First, What Is An Affiliate?
An affiliate is a person or company that promotes another person or company’s product. And that person or company will receive their cut when the sale is made.
An affiliate 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.
This is called 60-day cookies (cookies are the internet term for keeping track of website visit history).
I recommend Clickbank because they approve almost everyone to promote their products and pay you every Wednesday.
However, the information from this page can be applied to promote any affiliate product from any company. Remove the word Clickbank and put your affiliate network name, and you will be set.
How To Promote Clickbank Products Without a Website Step By Step
Without any further delay, 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 you have one, you can skip this step.
To create a Clickbank account, go to:
You will find a page like this one below.
Just fill in all the required information. You need to put your accurate data, including your real name, address, and email (I know it sounds obvious, but I know people who put fake information).
This will save you from troubles when Clickbank pays you in the future.
Then click next and fill in your correct bank information. After finalizing everything, you must 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 an excellent product to promote.
All you need to do is log into your Clickbank account and click Marketplace. That will take you directly to the Clickbank marketplace.
In the marketplace, you will find a lot of products. If you are new and have no idea where to start, pick one of the three categories: Health & Fitness, E-Business & E-Marketing, or Self-Help.
These are the categories in which people buy many products from Clickbank. Click on any category.
When the search results appear, click in the drop menu and choose Sort by gravity, High to Low.
For those who don’t know, Clickbank gravity is an estimated metric that indicates the number of affiliates who have 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 look for a product that you want to promote. For me, these are the things I look for in the product.
Most people will tell you you must promote products with the highest gravity. This is a myth because higher gravity does not necessarily mean it is a good product.
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 would say choose a product between the gravity of 10 and 50 if this is your first Clickbank promotion, and stick with between 20 and 30 if there is no product in that range. Depending on the niche, You can go a bit low or high.
This is the money you will make when people buy a specific product using your affiliate link. I tend to choose products with initial sales equal to or above 20.
If I make at least one sale per day, I will make at least $20, which is not bad.
This is the average amount of money you will make for every sale you generate. If the Initial deal amount=Avg $/sale, the product does not offer any Upsales, or people don’t buy them.
Avg Rebill Total
If this number is $0.00, the products do not have recurring payments, so you will not make any money after the initial sale. If it is bigger than 0, it means it has a recurring income.
This number represents a sale’s average affiliate commission percentage, including only the rebill commission.
For me, the most essential factors are gravity and initial sale. 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 ensure that it is an excellent and clean sales page/video, with no link to other websites, no gimmicks, or false claims, 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 choose another product.
Buying and using the product before promoting it is always good practice.
Using those criteria, I selected the product called Ikaria juice.
Step 3: Get your affiliate link
So now you have done all the work and found your product. You need to get your affiliate link.
This is easy. Click the promote button (the one below Avg $/sale and this popup will appear in a new window.
In the, enter your information part, you should have your Clickbank nickname. It should default if you click from inside your Clickbank account. If it is not there, type it and make sure it is correct to 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 helpful because it will tell you where the sale came from and help you decide which traffic-generating method to focus on.
In this article, I will use the X (formerly known as Twitter) (spoiler alert), which is why I put Twitter (it is still Twitter for me). You can put anything you want there.
Then 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 and paste it somewhere you can remember, like in Notepad, and save it on your computer.
Step 4: Create a landing page
In this method, we are going to create a simple page that will be between our offer and traffic. In this method, we are going to do this for free.
You only need to create a free Systeme IO account and a simple landing page.
After joining systeme.io, Please click on funnels, then create. You will see a form below. Give your funnel a name, choose to build an audience, and then click Create.
You will be provided with many pre-made templates; select the one you like the most, remember to add your affiliate link, and you are ready.
I found a landing page created by Dan Korsby; you can check out his YouTube channel here. There are excellent tutorials, by the way.
To download this landing page, click here or in the image below.
After downloading it, click on funnels, select the funnel you just downloaded, then click on edit the page.
After that, you will see the page shown in the image below. Click on the questions box. On the left hand, you will see edit the survey questions.
I recommend editing them to make them unique; after choosing an action, make sure that the redirect is selected.
On the redirect URL, here is where you paste the affiliate link you got from Clickbank.
After adding your affiliate link, make sure to save the landing page and click on the exit button; you will find the save button in the top right corner, and there is an exit button next to it.
That is all you need to do: know you have a landing page that you can start to promote and make some money.
Email me if you have any issues creating your landing pages, and I will help you for free.
Step 5: Drive traffic to your landing page
There are many ways to drive traffic to your landing page. You can use Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, or X for diet and weight loss products or any other products. Pick the one you feel most comfortable with.
For this example, I created an X page (for some still Twitter). You can use any social media, and the process is the same.
Go to twitter.com and create a new page. Could you give it a name related to weight loss? For me, I gave it the name Nerd Getting Lean.
Add a logo or a picture of yourself( I added a generic photo of someone who looks like a nerd).
Do not forget to add a link to your landing page. You can use Canva to create a logo, and you can use it to create images and short videos that you can then post to your page.
How do you grow on X?
At the moment of writing this post, I have 30 followers. I am planning to grow to at least. 10K followers by the end of 2024 ( I can do more, but I have other projects).
Everyone starts with zero followers; you are not different; my recommendation is to find bigger accounts in your niche, find people who comment on those accounts, and interact with them.
For content to post on your Twitter page, go to YouTube, find popular videos in your niche, watch them, take their main ideas, write a summary of it, or record yourself speaking about those ideas, and post it on your page( using your own words).
Another way to produce endless content is to post your progress. Do you talk about making money online? Post what you are doing and your results, discuss weight loss and fitness, and share your workout routines, diets, and progress.
If you do things and share your experience, many people will trust you and buy anything you promote to them; do not sell them scams. They will stop listening to you.
I am inactive in this account but plan to be active again. I recommend posting at least three times a day to build and grow your Instagram account.
When the follower account grows, more people will click on your link and purchase your promotional offer.
Question and Answers
Does this method work?
Yes, it works. I still use it to make sales and drive traffic to my landing page, and I know many people who make a lot of money from X and Clickbank.
How much money can I make from this method?
There is no guarantee of how much money you can make, but in my case, I make a sale between 30 and 50 visitors to my affiliate link. Sometimes, I make more. It depends on many factors.
If you make $30 per sale on average and at least one sale per 100 visitors, you need 300 visitors to make $100 daily. It is doable.
Is this long-term?
No, this is not a long-term strategy, but you can use this method to make at least $100 daily, which is very difficult to scale up. You must start building your list and probably creating an authority blog yourself.
This is how you can promote Clickbank products without a website or blog. You can use many methods, and I will keep posting them here.
