There are lots of ways to earn a handsome income by using internet. According to me, it is easy to build a full time business on online. You can start from zero and earn 5 figures or even more from your business model easily. Only thing you want is to have a computer and internet connection. There are lots of examples on internet in which a person start working online (some people start for fun and some to earn money) and makes it full time business. One of the example is Darren Rowse (founder of the problogger). ProBlogger is a blog which teaches people how to earn money online while sitting on your computer.

There are countless ways to earn money from internet but today we will talk about IM (internet marketing). For me, it is one the best and easy way to earn  crazy money on internet. In IM you work as a vendor or affiliate. A vendor is the owner of the product and affiliate is working like a marketing agent who convinced people to purchase a particular product. When someone buy a product through affiliate recommendation then this person gets a handy commission from vendor who owns the product. ClickBank also works on this principle.

What is ClickBank and How it Works

ClickBank is acting like a digital products store in which people put their products so that it could be sold out. It handles all the payment processing and job of the vendor is to sit and collect money. CB is the biggest digital product store on internet and have a Alexa rank 449 (alexa – a site who ranks websites on internet by their user traffic). ClickBank deals only in digital products like software’s,video or audio lessons,ebooks and paid memberships sites.

How to make money from ClickBank is extremely easy. You can work here as vendor or affiliate. According to me, you should start working as a affiliate because you are a beginner in IM world and the loss is minimal as compared to vendor. Once you become a pro then you can launch your own product and hire affiliates to bring sales.But first you have to sign up for an account on ClickBank and the good news is that it is completely free.

How To Choose a ClickBank Product That Sells

This is a point where most of the people in IM market is failed. They just choose a random creepy product and hope for the getting lots of sales but it is not true. There are no hard and fast rule to choose a ClickBank products but there are some standard rules which IM guru are highlighted while choosing a hot converting product.

1- First of all, you will have to ask yourself if you are a customer then you will buy this product or not. Put yourself in the shoe of customers. If in first look you didn’t like this then definitely your customer will also not like this. If the product landing page is well written,no grammar and spelling errors,visual appealing,don’t look childish,offer bonuses and the price is reasonable then go for it, otherwise look for another one. Always choose a product on that topic in which you are an expert so that you can enjoy the whole process of getting sales.

2- Just check how much you will earn once the sales done. I always choose a product which gives me more than 20$. You have your own choice.

3- Just check how much commission they are offering on their product. I mostly choose 75% commission and you will find thousand of products that offers that much commission on clickBank. That’s why i love clickBank because it offers highest payout commission than any other network on internet.

4- While choosing a product if you find a product that offers recurring commission then go for it because once the sales done you will get commission again and again until customer would be a subscribed member of that service or site. You can find lots of recurring products in clickBank store.

5- Last one but it is important always choose a product that has a high gravity. Higher gravity means this product is doing well and affiliate brings sales easily. But don’t deceive by higher gravity sometimes it will not work for you. Because there are may be IM guru out there who have lots of money to spend to get ranked well for that particular product. My advice is to you, as a beginner always choose a product which has a gravity between 20 to 90. If you didn’t get a product with higher gravity then go for low gravity products also. But the key point is here while choosing a product you should consider these 5 points which i mentioned above.

Here is the screenshot guide which will teaches you how to choose a clickBank product from clickBank marketplace.While on dashboard you will a marketplace link in upper right corner just click it and it will take a page like below
