So, a program that promises you anything outrageous should send you immediate red flags. Secondly, the best affiliate marketing training programs offer comprehensive support. Most people starting out in affiliate marketing do not have any formal training in web design, sales and marketing, and content creation. A good program will support you from beginning to end with lots of instructional classes and videos and expert technical support to help you fully understand the business.
It sounds like you have a pretty good plan there. Actually, when I started writing this post, I was going to just highlight how crappy Clickbank products are, but after looking through them, I realized that some are actually OK. Some people have great products and just use Clickbank as ONE of their affiliate vendors – stuff like Affilorama or Niche Flipper – even stuff I promote!
White labeling products involve purchasing pre-made products from a supplier and then adding your own labeling and branding. Products could range from candles to gym equipment or even tea, but all will come without labels, allowing you to create your own new range of merchandise. Most suppliers will advertise the fact they offer white labeled goods on their websites, so pick your niche and then find the right supplier and product for you. Once labeled, products can be sold via sites like eBay and Amazon, or from your own eCommerce store (discussed in a moment).
ClickBank is one of the most recognizable affiliate platforms in the world and for good reason. It started in a San Diego garage in 1998 and has since grown into a 3 billion dollar+ ecommerce giant. ClickBank has perfected the digital marketing space by creating a vast marketplace for both product creators and affiliates (sellers of those products) to make income together without burdensome paperwork or complex legal agreements. In fact, from just the front page of the marketplace, ClickBank’s clients will earn close to one hundred million dollars this year in 2018.
Thanks for the tip on gravity numbers. I knew that gravity was a way to tell how popular a product is and if it was selling or not, but I didn’t know what type of numbers we should be looking for. My initial products chosen were certainly not chosen on the basis of gravity because I had no idea what it is! CB can definitely be a place to make some money, but one must be very careful to choose a good product. A new marketer might not always be able to tell the difference.
If you have graphic design skills then you could make money online by creating and selling your own design elements, like templates, fonts, graphics, and other assets. This is a great way to earn extra money and build up a portfolio of work, which could lead to you picking up freelance graphic design jobs. Websites like Envato Elements pay you a fee per element sold, which can become quite profitable if your work is popular.
