    Hi everyone. This is a terrific board - well done to all involved!

    I just launched my first product on ClickBank a fortnight ago (http://www.great-website-design.com) and this is going to be a great way to learn from everyone's experiences. I hope to be able to return some of the advice, if I ever get good at it too.

    As a ClickBank newcomer, I was just wondering how successful people have been with their own products. Has anyone got some "top five tips" that they can share with us?

    I know some people claim that you can "make $56,000 in a weekend selling eBooks," but I find that hard to believe. What is a realistic level of success to expect?

    Thanks again for this great board,

    Best wishes,
    Neil

    I also am new to Clickbank, my software has been listed in the marketplace for about a week now. So far I havent made a single sale. But I suspect it takes time like most internet ventures I have tried or am into. Any folks wanting to sell my products or yours etc, would have to take the time to display banners, links etc, then display the pages etc. Plus like most internet ventures I have tried, it takes a LOT of traffic, and clicks to make one sale. So I also am wondering what the amounts are that vendors make ?

    Neil, the answer to your question "What is a realistic level of success to expect" is hidden inside it -

    "I find it hard to believe"

    Whatever you believe is your limit of success, you'll reach it. The reason I'm saying this with utter conviction will become obvious if you read my post on Martin Avis' "KickStart Your Life" forum -
    http://www.KickStartYourLife.com/forum/

    It's the post titled: "SELF BELIEF - Cure for Fear & Low Confidence"

    After this mind-expanding moment, I now believe 56K isn't only reachable, it's quite possible to do a far lot more!

    But just two months ago, you couldn't have convinced me if you hit me over the head with a stick Smile

    I have not sold $56,000 in a weekend. I wish I could!

    But you can sell well -- if you promote yourself. Do NOT just rely on the ClickBank marketplace. With all due respect to ClickBank, you'll probably never get anywhere if you just do that.

    You have to get additional traffic (maybe even 90%+ from non-ClickBank sources) if you want to sell well. What about google ranking? Are you advertising? Have you personally recruited a handful of GOOD affiliates on your exact topic?

    You also have to be persistent. My original ClickBank product, also a software, just didn't sell many at all, but was still valuable learning experience. You also need to make sure your product, sales letter, price, etc., is right, and this may take time and a few iterations.

    Don't get too frustrated if you don't make a sale on day one -- even when I had a good product, that has subsequently sold really really well, I didn't make my first sale for several days...

    Two other thoughts


    Neil: I'm no copywriting expert, but your headline "Help Stop the Website Madness!" is probably killing you. I didn't look over the whole sales letter, but this jumped out immediately.

    Where is the benefit or promise to a customer? What does a customer get out of "help stop the website madness", it isn't clear it could mean anything if you don't read the whole letter.

    I didn't read the whole letter, just glanced at it a bit, but I would have thought the headline should tell the customer something they will gain by buying your product, e.g. something like [change the actual benefit statement to show it]

    "You Can Be An Expert Webmaster In Just 7 Days"

    "How To Be An Expert Webmaster In Just 7 Days"

    "Revealed! How To...."

    "Revealed! The Secrets Of ...."

    etc



    Home inventory guy: Sorry, I forget your name, and I can't scroll back when posting. Why don't you try and get some press coverage or reviews? I would have thought there must be specialist magazines online and offline on home making, home security, etc. Give out free copies and ask for a review, maybe start with smaller online sites, especially if still perfecting your sales pitch or product.

    Neil, I don't know about 5 specific tips
    but I have written a free book which will help.

    ClickBank SuperTips
    == How to become a high-earning
    == ClickBank affiliate or merchant
    http://www.clickbankguide.com/ckbook.htm


    One tip I will give you is that the prominent link to
    Affiliates at your site is going to deter potential
    affiliates from signing up. They will reason that
    customers will simply sign up and purchase under their
    own affiliate link.

    There are ways around this - see my book.

    On a final note it does appear that you can make good
    earnings, and quickly, using Google AdWords. See my
    article

    ClickBank with Adwords

    Thanks to you all for your comments - I've already put some of them to use. I realise that you need to do quite a lot of experimenting to get it right.

    Any more general advice for us newcomers would be greatly appreciated.

    Best wishes,
    Neil

    Hi Neil,

    When I first started internet marketing 2++ years ago, I spent a lot
    of time in various marketing forums. Many things were new to me
    and I soaked up as much info as I could. I asked many questions,
    and answered those that I can.

    The best thing about forum participation is the friendships that were
    formed ... solid friendships that goes beyond business. Btw, that's
    how Harvey and myself got acquainted 2 years ago.

    Many of those relationships later resulted in joint-ventures. It takes
    time, but then, anything worthwhile will require time and effort.


    Warm regards,
    Adrian
