Step #1 Choose The Niche And Find Right Products
Choose a niche
TIP — Choose a target audience accustomed to spending money.
There are many, many “markets” that you can choose from. A few include: Arts and Crafts, Beauty, Business, Careers, Computers and Technology, Cooking, Dating, Disease and Illness, Health and Fitness, Hobbies, Home Schooling, Leadership, Motivational, Parenting, Public Speaking, Recreation and Sports, Relationships, Religion, Romance, Success, Self-Help, Sports, Time Management, and Writing.
In all honesty, any niche can be profitable.But for beginners in affiliate marketing, my suggestion is to choose your niche topic after checking if there are any good affiliate products first.
Join affiliate network
Clickbank is one of the more popular places where you can choose from more than 1000's of products . On Clickbank, physical products offer commissions of 30-60%, a digital product can provide a commission of 50-75% of the sale price.
The most important, It’s a beginner-friendly affiliate network that has a straightforward sign-up process, and you can easily accepted even you a beginner.

find the right product
Finding the right product to promote is critical and I see people the mistake of choosing the WRONG product all the time. This is a HUGE road black. But instead of focusing on what the wrong products are, I focus on what the right products are.
The first step in finding good products to promote is to look for products that are
already selling well for other affiliates. This means that those products will probably
sell well for you, too!
This is really easy to check in ClickBank.
After login in the Clickbank, head over to ClickBank and navigate to the Marketplace.
On the left-hand side, you’ll see a list of product categories:
Choose a category and click on the drop-down arrow to reveal the sub-categories within the section. For example, if you click on “Health & Fitness,” you’ll find several different niches within the broader category.
Click on a category or a sub-category, and you’ll be directed to a page featuring products that you can promote.
ClickBank is a great place to find digital products, but you need to filter out the low-quality products to find the lucrative offers that are worth promoting.
This is really easy to check in ClickBank using the Gravity filter.
Gravity: Number of distinct affiliates who earned a commission by promoting the vendor's products during the past 12 weeks.
This is not an actual number of affiliates. For each affiliate an amount between 0.1 and 1.0 is added to the result, depending on when his/her last transaction occurred. More recent transactions are given a higher value.
How to use ClickBank Gravity(grav)?
You can use the “Filters” section on the left-hand side.
l think you should not promote products with gravity less than "5". Such gravity tells us there are only few affiliates who have sold this product. It signals us that either the product's sales page doesn't work well or too few affiliates have tried to promote this product.
When you see a product with gravity "5-20", you should check its activation date. If it is a new product, start to look after it. Such product can become popular very soon.
A gravity level " more than 20" is a definite proof of a great sales page.
In fact, high gravity doesn't mean that you can easily profit from these products. It also means there are more affiliates and competition with the product. So if you are a beginner, be careful to promote products with gravity more than "200".
Next, take a look at how much you’ll earn from a product. ClickBank gives you a range
of numbers to look at:
- Initial $ Conversion:This is how much you earn per sale before any “back-end” purchases are included. It’ll be your cut of the purchase price that you see on the sales page for the product.
- Average $ Conversion: This is the important figure. It can be significantly higher than the “Initial $ Per Sale” because this data includes upsells.You might not earn this much from every customer, but this is what you can expect on average over time.
l recommend looking for products with an Average $ Conversion of at least $30.
I aslo recommend looking for at least three products that you could imagine promoting on your sales funnel.So what is the sales funnel? And how to create sales funnel? Don't worry, l will teach you in the next lesson later.
How To get affiliate link
After you find the right products, you need to get affilaite link, when people enter the sales page via your affilaite link, once they pay, you will get commission.
Click the red button "PROMOTE" and input your Clickbank nickname. You will get the affiliatel link.
Don't make mistake like other newbies
Too often I see one of the biggest mistakes anyone could make. Trying to send people straight to the affiliate link and expect them to buy.
Even there are many Youtubers teaching people to do affiliate marketing using this wrong way. On different social media, just DM other people the affiliate link.
Of course, you may be able to make the first sales in this way, but you are at a HUGE disadvantage.
- It can be seen as spamming.
- You can get banned on social media for doing it.
- The conversions are terrible in all cases.
So, what is the right way to do it?
I’ll show you the right way used by any qualified affiliate marketers. You need a sales funnel, and send people to the sales funnel.
If you tried to understand affiliate marketing or make money online before, you must have heard of sales funnel, and it's okey if you haven't.
l will show you what sales funnel is and how to create high quality sales funnel step by step with the lowest budget.
