There are a ton of different ways to make money online: selling physical goods, generating leads for businesses, monetizing traffic with advertising…the list goes on.
I’ve always been a bookworm, so when I started looking into online business models and stumbled across Clickbank, I knew I had found the model for me.
Clickbank is both an affiliate network and an online marketplace for “digital information products” (things like ebooks and membership websites, as well as software).
Most importantly for internet marketers who want to sell their own information products, Clickbank serves as a dead-simple shopping cart and a place to find thousands of affiliates.
I’ve been a Clickbank “vendor” for several years. I love being able to package up information and sell it, and Clickbank makes it really easy to do so.
One of the things that Clickbank has lacked (until now) is “lessons learned” from their most successful vendors. In addition to the Clickbank Exchange (which I attended last year and was absolutely awesome), CB is starting to hold webinars where they share the secrets of their top producers. I recently attended their first such webinar (hosted by Beau Blackwell, Clickbank’s “Client Knowledge Guru”) and wrote up some notes on it.
In this post I’ll outline the key points I took away from the webinar.
