Making Money With Affiliate Marketing
Earn Money selling affiliate products
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing, is earning money on the internet by promoting other peoples products. It's the most common way and easiest way to earn money on the internet and start an online business. You don't even need to have your own website to start earning money as an affiliate.
When you make a sale, you get rewarded with a commission from the owner of the product. It's a revenue sharing model where you typically get 50-75% of the sale and the merchant (vendor) gets 25-50%. That's when we talk about digital products like e-books and memberships sites. Obviously when it comes to physical products, like amazon.com products, the commission is a lot smaller.
Most often affiliate marketing is organized in a way so the merchant has listed their products with a company an "affiliate network" that handles a lot of merchants and presents offers for the affiliates to choose from.
You as an affiliate marketer, join the affiliate network and may pick the products you like to promote. The affiliate network manage the vendors and the affiliates and handles the money transactions from the customers, and payments to the vendor and affiliate commission to YOU as an affiliate.

Obviously the affiliate network company gets a fee from the transactions and that's their business.
The affiliate network provide you with affiliate links for each of the products you want to promote.
Your business is to promote the affiliate products via your affiliate link and collecting your commissions for the sales you generate. The most common way to get paid is via paypal, by check or direct deposit into your bank account.
By selling other peoples product as an affiliate, most of the work is done for you. You don't need to create you own product or business model, you don't even need to have a business, no inventory, no risk, very little business expenses except advertising cost, it's free to signup with an affiliate network and join affiliate programs, you don't need to accept payment and dealing with customers and refunds.

Let's go to clickbank.com marketplace
...but first "How do we engineer a profitable campaign"?
This is something that nobody teaches. It's the most important thing before even getting traffic.
(Vick is going through the clickbank marketplace and find a potential product to promote, which is satellite direct).
The first thing to find out: is there a market for this product?
Market research for your Clickbank product
Here is how to do:
Go to google Keyword tool (now google keyword planner which you'll find inside a free Google Adwords account), input the offer website to find which keywords google suggests for the product sales page. Very easy!
Important: Search for "exact match" keywords for the salespage, that's keywords in brackets like this: [keyword]. (Note Google's New Keyword planner shows Exact match type keywords automatically)
Now to determine if there is a market for that Clickbank product you want the main keywords for the product to be 5000 exact match type searches a month or more.
OK, we have determined that there is high demand for our offer.
The next thing, I will find out for the actual offer is, how much money I am gonna make in Clickbank commissions.
Is there a recurring commission so I am getting commissions over and over again each month?
The next I will look for, is there a competition?
Remember what I told you before, I want competition so I know there are people making money with this.
If there is no competition stay away from the product. You wanna promote something that has competition, then you think of how you can outsmart that competition.
How do I determine if there is competition?
Well, clickbank has something they call "Gravity" that's an internal formula clickbank uses, which basically shows you how many affiliates are earning money with this particular product.
The higher the gravity, the more people are promoting and earning money with this product. So the higher the number the better.
What should the gravity number be?
If the gravity number is below 50 I recommend to stay away from promoting this product and look for another clickbank product in the marketplace to promote.
So I am gonna promote this clickbank product, I'm gonna click on "promote" and enter my click bank ID to generate the affiliate link I will be using.
NOTE: the Satellite Direct offer that Vick is talking about is no longer on clickbank, it has been taken off.
