Learning to how to begin on Clickbank can be difficult for a novice, so I've tried to break the process down into a Clickbank step by step guide that should be helpful for getting a start in promoting products online with Clickbank.

For those of you who may not be aware, Clickbank is the largest online affiliate marketplace for information products on the internet. This means that vendors come there to find affiliates who will help them sell their information products such as software, eBooks and other similar downloadable items.

Step 1 - The first thing you need to do is go to Just Google it and it will come up at the very top of the results. You will also need to create an account, which is free. If your goal is market other people's products for a commission, you will need to set up your account as an affiliate. Be sure to read their terms of service and fill in your bank account information so you can get paid.

You also need to be aware that Clickbank takes a processing fee on every transaction before you receive your commission, and that they normally will not pay you until you meet a minimum threshold of $100. You'll need to be aware that if the product has a lot of{ refunds, which Clickbank normally grants, commissions will be taken back out of your account accordingly for each sale that refunds.

Step 2 - You will need to browse the Clickbank marketplace and decide on a product to market. This is the biggest choice you will make. You will want to pick a product that has a live support for affiliates and provides an extensive affiliate tools page. This page normally will give you many of the keywords associated with the product (though you should do your own research as well), email 'swipe' copy that you can use to mail to your list, and banner ads you can add to your site. Taking your time to go through the marketplace at Clickbank step by step is key. Do not rush or get taken in by the "hottest" selling products. Oftentimes, the best products for beginners are not in the "hottest" category with the highest Clickbank gravity numbers.

Step 3 - You'll need to build a website to "pre-sell" the traffic before they get to your vendors products landing page. Pre-selling the traffic greatly increases conversions and also allows you to provide content that will answer potential buyer's questions, before they are actually pitched to buy the product at your product vendors "sell" page. Building a website and offering relevant, keyword targeted information that helps potential buyers is really a your main job. Don't worry, today's software makes it super easy, and best of all, you can do it for almost no cost.
