Your Own ClickBank Affiliate Storefront
Before we get started...
Before we get started...
There are a lot of different ways to make money online, one is called affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing involves promoting a product/service to potential customers, in exchange for a commission on the sale when one occurs. The commission paid is a percentage of the sale amount.One reason affiliate marketing is popular is because you don't need to create your own product to make money. There is no cost to get started. You just sign up as an affiliate, get your affiliate link and start promoting.
At ClickBank you can find thousands of products to promote as an affiliate and you can earn as much as 75% commission, depending on the product. Being an affiliate is completely free, and takes only minutes to sign up. And there are no limitations as to how many products you can promote. ClickBank handles all of the payment processing, deliver of the product and tracking of your commissions, so all you have to focus on is promotion.You can promote individual ClickBank products or you can promote many ClickBank products through an online storefront or mall. This hub will show you how to create your own customizable and searchable ClickBank marketplace affiliate storefront.
First you will need to decide if you want to host your own site or use a hosted storefront. If you want to host your own storefront you will need to have a certain level of technical skill. You will need to feel comfortable setting up a web site hosting account. You will have to install a script and may need to know some HTML. If you don't want to concern yourself with these things, there is another option.
There are several companies that provide ClickBank storefronts/malls that are hosted on their sites. This is the most practical option for most people.One of the best that I have found is with a company called CBProAds. CBProAds provides a service that helps affiliate marketers sell more ClickBank products from their websites or blogs. They provide an ad toolbox that allows you to create a number of different type ads for top selling ClickBank products. CbproAds also provides a fully featured Clickbank storefront for those who don't have their own website or blog.
To create your own ClickBank storefront, first you have to sign up for a free account at CBProAds.
After you register your account, sign in and we can get started.
From the main menu select the "StoreFront Set Up Wizzard" option. Then choose "Customize My StoreFront".
Step 1. Type in the title you want for your storefront. This is the name you choose for your online store. (ie. Path To Empowerment)
Step 2. Add your own content to the home page of your storefront. This is the text that your store visitors will see when they first come to your storefront. There is some default text already supplied for you. You may keep all or some of the default text. In my example I have kept most of the text but added the title I chose for my site.
Step 3. Add your own header graphics. There is a default header that is already provided. You can keep this one, modify it to include the name of your site, or create a completely new one.
I kept the default header but modified it to include the name of my site. I used a free graphics program called GIMP.
Step 4 : Add your own HTML or banner scripts to your storefront. You can add your own HTML code to the home page of the storefront. For example, you can add your Google Adsense script or other affiliate program banner or script.
Step 5 : Enter the META keywords and description of your storefront. The Meta Description is used by some search engines to determine what your pages are about and to rank them. Enter a short description of your storefront here and it will be placed in the meta description tag in the header of every page of your storefront. Most search engines will accept a maximum of 255 characters for the description.
Step 6 : Enable/Disable Showing Price & Popularity Rank of Products. Just select yes or no next to each option to have the price and/or popularity of each product displayed or not displayed on your storefront.
When you are done customizing your storefront, select "Save and Finish"
After you save your changes you will be given a link to your new storefront. This is the link that you will be promoting.
If you want you can register a domain for your storefront. After you register your domain you can forward the domain to your new ClickBank storefront. If you are using NameCheap as your domain registrar, when you forward your domain select the "URL Frame" option. "URL Frame" uses frame redirect to mask the URL you are forwarding to.
I registered the domain www.onlineinfodirectory.com at godaddy.com.If you want to see my CBProAds storefront LIVE go to UveGotGame.com.
If you want your own ClickBank storefront I recommend that you check out CBProAds. You can even open a free account to get started.
