Affiliate marketing is without a doubt a proven way to make money online. However the sad truth is that just a tiny percentage of affiliate marketers constantly find real success or become super affiliates. For the most part people that get into affiliate marketing try advertising one or two affiliate products and when they notice their campaigns are not profitable they give up and believe that affiliate marketing is not legitimate.

The truth is that there are many legitimate affiliate marketing programs and Clickbank can be one of the best places to start. However be warned that you will face considerable competition since most affiliate marketers both new and experienced use Clickbank affiliate products. Do not let this scare you away since there are great profits to be made selling digital products.

The internet really is the textbook place to sell digital products and remember that one of the advantages to selling digital products is the fact that they are available instantly after purchase which provides instantaneous gratification for prospective customers. We live in the information age and people know the importance of good quality information and they will pay for it given the right offer.

There are many strategies you can apply to sell Clickbank products. First you need to decide how you propose to send traffic to your affiliate pages. You can opt for paid advertising like Google adwords or other pay per click sources and/or you can focus on building content rich authority sites with affiliate advertising embedded within them. It may be best to use both strategies.

One of the keys with pay per click advertising is the nature of the traffic you are sending to your affiliate pages. It is important that you drive highly targeted traffic otherwise your conversion rates will not be good enough to cover your advertising expenses. With Clickbank products it should be okay to bid on the product name as they are usually not copyrighted and the product creators do not mind since they know you are sending them traffic and sales.

It is imperative to keep a close eye on new products that come out on Clickbank as many of them can become popular fast so if you can get your ad up quickly then you can often draw clicks for a very low cost.
