So, let’s get started with your Clickbank affiliate marketing training, shall we?

So, What The Heck Is Clickbank Anyways For You Beginner Affiliates Reading This?

Clickbank started way back in 1997 and is the Worlds biggest digital marketplace where affiliates can choose to signup for free as an affiliate and promote any of the thousands of digital marketing products + services from vendors from around the World that Clickbank offers and earn a commission for each sale generated via your unique affiliate link.

Clickbank has paid out a whopping $3 Billion plus dollars to its affiliate marketers since it was created in 1997.

In layman’s terms, ClickBank is the Godzilla of the digital marketing world.

Digital products and services can be accessed immediately after successful payment.

Examples include digital ebooks, membership sites, and digital courses + services. [To name a few examples ]

You can not physically touch a digital product, and Clickbank digital products do not arrive at your doorstep in 2 days or less like Amazon merchandise which are physical products.

Clickbank affiliate revenues usually range from 50 to 75% for each successful sale the referring affiliate generates via his or her affiliate link.

There are almost always upsells and down sells inside the funnel for affiliates to earn multiple affiliate commissions when a buyer buys the original product he or she was referred to and then is offered multiple products that are compatible with the original purchase.

Affiliates can literally earn thousands of dollars per sale if they are promoting Clickbank high ticket offers to as low as $20 per sale if, say, you are promoting a book on cooking, for example.

It all boils down to what affiliate product you, the ClickBank affiliate, decide to promote that goes along well with the niche that they are in.

There are literally tens of thousands of digital products that affiliates can choose to promote on the Clickbank marketplace and earn their first Clickbank sales through.

With Clickbank, the possibilities are literally endless.

Here is a how-to video I created for new Clickbank affiliates that shows you how to start affiliate marketing for beginners. [ 30 minutes long + packed with great content ]

Step 1: To Make Your First Clickbank Affiliate Sales In 2020

To make your very first Clickbank affiliate sale, you will have to learn the basics if you have not done so already.

Like creating basic Clickbank affiliate hoplinks, and learning how to cloak your affiliate links, your links get more clicks and look more professional and attractive to your visitors.

This will greatly increase your affiliate clicks and sales generated from your unique Clickbank affiliate links.

I am going to leave a how-to video below that shows you step-by-step how to make money with Clickbank. [ Yes, this video is old, but still applies to this day and has 1.5 thousand likes and almost 400,000 views ]

Yes, this video was created by me back in the day, and it shows you the basics on how to create affiliate hoplinks, etc ]

In short, it is an oldie but a goodie and very helpful.

Step 2: To Make Your First Clickbank Affiliate Sales In 2023

The 2nd step to making your first clickbank affiliate sale would be learning how to pick the right affiliate products on Clickbank to promote.

For your convenience, I discussed how to pick the right affiliate products to promote in the two videos I placed above.

But, to break it down for you, look for these qualities in a potential Clickbank product you are considering promoting.

  • Ask yourself, after looking at the sales page of the product, if you would buy this particular product yourself. Does the sales page look professional? If you answered yes, proceed to the next step.
  • What is the Clickbank gravity for the product you are considering promoting? Does the product have a good Clickbank gravity? Is it a top seller in the category that you found the product in? Usually, but not all the time, the higher the gravity, the better the product sells. I like to promote top-selling Clickbank products and services because they usually sell better. But, sometimes, you can find a diamond in the rough that does not have a high Clickbank gravity but sells like wildfire, in this case. I would look at the sales page and ask myself would I buy this product? Then test, test, and test some more to see if the Clickbank product converts.
  • How much does the Clickbank product pay? Obviously, the more commissions that you get referring to that particular Clickbank product, the better. It takes the same time and effort to promote high ticket affiliate offers and services as it does low paying $20 products and services. Keep that in mind!
  • Does the product pay a one-off commission, or is it residual in nature? Residual paying ClickBank products and services pay you on a monthly basis as long as the customer stays a customer month after month. With one-off low-paying Clickbank products and services, you have to keep driving new customers all the time, and if it doesn’t pay much, what is the point, right?
  • I like to look for Clickbank products or affiliate products in general that pay residual commissions on a monthly basis or high ticket offers where I can earn a few hundred per sale, up to a few thousand per sale in some cases. These are the type of Clickbank products worth promoting on a daily basis and building your business around.

Step 3: To Make Your First Clickbank Affiliate Sales In 2023

The third step to take to make your first Clickbank affiliate sales in 2023 is building yourself a solid foundation for your new affiliate marketing business to grow and prosper.

This means starting up your own WordPress blog where you will have a solid foundation to grow your affiliate business. [ Link I highlighted is a step-by-step guide for ClickBank affiliates to start a WordPress blog.] It is very detailed!

By starting your own self-hosted WordPress blog, you can promote any affiliate product that you want without worrying about a 3rd party closing down, going against their rules, etc…

Building a blog around a profitable niche that interests you is the best way to create a solid foundation to build your business around.

Step 4: To Make Your First Clickbank Affiliate Sales In 2023

To make your first Clickbank affiliate sale in 2023, you are going to need traffic.

When you are just starting out as a Clickbank affiliate learning the ropes, you will probably not have much money to invest in paid ads like FB ads, Google AdWords, Bing ads, and the various other online networks you could potentially advertise on.

That is the quickest way to profitability with affiliate marketing if you have the budget to spare on paid advertising. [ This is a cool free webinar on how to build yourself a $1k business daily for those of you reading this with a budget ]

For most new Clickbank affiliates, paid advertising is out of the question, so it is vitally important that you start a blog and update it on a set schedule.

Obviously, the more you post to your blog, the better.

Especially at the beginning when you are just starting your online business.

Remember: Quality over quantity.

The longer the blog post and the more useful it is, the more it will get read, rank higher in the search engines, and get retweeted and shared on all the major social networks.

Giving you free search engine traffic and hopefully bringing in your first Clickbank sales in 2023 and many more in the future.

Quality, quality, quality!

For more free traffic.

Start a FB Fanpage, start a Twitter account, start a LinkedIn account, start a Reddit account, start an Instagram account, start a YouTube channel, and whatever other free methods that you can think of to promote your business and your ClickBank affiliate links to make your first Clickbank affiliate sale in 2023.

This all takes time your building an affiliate business.

So, work on your business as much as possible, even if it is only an hour a day.

If you are persistent enough and like a challenge, eventually, you will get to where you want to be.

When your affiliate business starts generating revenue, you can re-invest some of your profits into paid ads and take your business to the next level.

Step 5: To Make Your First Clickbank Affiliate Sales In 2023 Equals Building An Email List

This is the most important step if you’re serious about making your first Clickbank sale and eventually building the affiliate business of your dreams one day.

Fact: Most of the money I have made online throughout the years is directly contributed to my email list and marketing.

In fact, I would say roughly 90% is directly attributed to my email list.

Here is a link to start your own email list and it is free for the first month. P.S. I have been with them for well over a decade.

If I had to start over and build my internet business from scratch and I lost everything during an apocalypse, let’s say.

I would do this step by step.

  • I would obviously sign up with an email service provider so I can build my email list [ Step #1 ]
  • I would build a high-converting email marketing funnel that turns your new email leads into paying customers. I have a nice funnel in place already. This is a skill you need to have. This free webinar shows you how to build a $100k affiliate business with funnels you will definitely want to check out.
  • I would build professional landing pages or squeeze pages that convert high and capture leads. I use Leadpages [ Love em ] Click here for an example of 1 of the squeeze pages I built using Leadpages that converts well.
  • I AM READY TO ROLL after I have my email list set up, my email marketing funnel, and my high-converting landing pages to capture those new email leads and drive them into my funnel.
  • Send targeted traffic to your squeeze page via free and paid traffic sources and get as many email subscribers onto your email list as possible.
  • If your funnel is put together well and you have the right affiliate products in place, then you will start seeing affiliate sales after affiliate sales and ClickBank sales after ClickBank sales.

That would be my whole business model, and it is the best, most profitable business model.

Fast, easy, and efficient when everything is set up properly.

Step 6: To Make Your Clickbank Affiliate Sales A Lot Quicker In 2020 And Save Years Of Your Life.

Get the proper affiliate marketing training!

I cannot stress this enough!

I wasted years of my life learning everything myself like a dumb ass.

Yeah, it’s cool but stupid!

What I should have done was spent a little bit of money in the beginning and invested in the proper clickbank affiliate training or any affiliate marketing training, for that matter, that had good reviews.

This would have had me making money a lot sooner and saved me a few years of my life in the process.

Don’t be me!

Don’t be dumb!

This is a business; treat it as such, or stick with what you’re doing now.

If you have the money to spare it is a great investment.

I cannot stress this enough.

Waste tons of time and make a little bit of money.


Spend a little bit of money, save years, and potentially make a lot of money with your affiliate business.


The latter one seems like a far smarter option to me.

Don’t you agree?

I hope you got value from this post on how to make your first Clickbank affiliate sales in 2023.
