When choosing a Clickbank product to promote as an affiliate you want to choose one that will convert well and make you a lot of sales. It is advisable to have a good solid criteria to follow when selecting a product to promote to increase your chances of choosing a profitable product. Some of the factors you want to consider are gravity score, competition, the sales copy, commission payout, product price and repeat commissions. Let’s take a look at each of these in more detail:
When first starting out it is best to stick to products with a gravity score between 20 and 50. These will be products that are converting and do have affiliates actively promoting them, but at the same time aren’t saturated with competition.
When you become a little more experienced with affiliate marketing, then start promoting products with a gravity score of over 50. There will be a little more competition, but with more affiliate promoting these products they are likely to be better converting products.
Don’t promote anything with a gravity score below 20 as these are not likely to convert well.
You should look at how much competition there is for promoting a particular product. You don’t want too much competition but at the same time you don’t want zero competition.
If you look at the Pay Per Click ads on Google and see there are no ads for that product then chances are that people have tried to promote that product without success. If there are PPC ads for that product then those people must be seeing some success to continue to pay for advertising.
So zero competition usually means there is no demand for that product. So even though you don’t want too much competition, you do want some competition.
The gravity score is not the only way to evaluate whether a product will convert well. In fact, gravity scores can’t always be relied on as some vendors will boost their gravity score by selling their product through a number of their own Clickbank accounts.
It is always advisable to check out the sales page of the product you are considering promoting so you can decide whether you think it would convert well. Generally, if you read the sales page and it makes you want to buy the product yourself, then it will be a good sales page. If a sales page does nothing for you and you have no interest in the product at all after reading it, then it might not be a very good converting sales page.
Commission Payout and Product Price
When choosing a product to promote you want to look at the price of the product and how much of that you will receive in commission. If a product pays out only a small commission then it might not be worth promoting. You don’t want to put in a lot of effort for very little return.
Higher priced products will pay out a higher commission and are often just as easy to sell as lower priced products. If a product has a good gravity score then it might be worth trying to promote it. It is better to promote a higher priced product that pays out well than promoting a lower priced product that pays out less than $20 per sale.
Another factor that makes a product good to promote is if it has the opportunity for repeat commissions. This might occur with a product that has a membership site where a customer will pay a monthly membership fee and you can earn a commission every month on that membership fee. It doesn’t take any extra effort to promote a membership product than it does to promote a one time payment product so you might as well go for one that will pay you commission every month.
When looking for a good Clickbank affiliate product to promote, take into consideration a gravity between 20 and 50, not too much competition but still a little, high commission payout, a good sales copy and if possible a repeat monthly commission. If you can get a product that matches this criteria then you will have a very good product to promote and earn affiliate commissions.
