As affiliate marketers we often rely on Clickbank for inventory to sell. It offers products to sell in a lot of different niches. Quite a few in many of the more lucrative fields. Some pay to promote, others may not perform.
Deciding is a complex mix of knowing your competition, the quality of the site, its products, gravity, and trend lines, etc. Some pay more, some have residuals. We can analyze all the above or rely on pure guess work.
Now in the past, I looked and ultimately kind of grabbed a product and ran with it, if only to get the experience.
But as you get more systematic and start following a plan of consistent action for massive results, you want to focus on the best products, which when coupled with your best efforts yields maximum profit.
But you can’t be wasting your time researching the sales page of junky Clickbank products that won’t sell. Your time is too valuable. Instead spend your time focused on the best options and use the ones that best fit your particular niche and approach. Your results will be better, for the same amount of effort.
There is an easy way to discover the best performers.
Brad Callen introduced a free plug in for Firefox, that highlights the best performers from among all the products listed on Clickbank.
It’s easy to install. I have, and it works great.
The plug in color codes each product offering on Clickbank, and reports critical information on its marketability. Those colored green, met a set of standards for marketability that is proprietary to the product. The red ones didn’t and are to be avoided.
You will succeed faster by focusing on those products with stronger prospects.
The one rub is that it’s kind of a black box. We don’t really know the full contents of the equation they use to decide who gets green and red and why. But we can get a pretty good idea by listening to their introductory video. Enough to make a decision on.
Do you think it makes sense to try it for a while? Would it help you find better products to promote?
The basic version is free so you can test drive it for years if you want.
Once it’s working for you, upgrade to the paid version, but no need to do that now. Unless you want to.., of course.
Whether you are working facebook, twitter, blogs, email marketing, moble or more, Clickbank is a huge resource – no matter what your niches.
Your objective is to promote the cream of the crop, not the poor performers.
This free tool will eliminate 80% of the clutter, so you can focus on the 20% of solid offers that will pay you for your efforts.
