Make Money With Clickbank-My Bum Marketing Plan That Is Simple and Will Work For You!

How To Make Money With clickbank and Bum Marketing

Here is a simple plan that I have been working on that I will be implementing very soon for my clickbank niches.The goal of this plan is to dominate lower competition keywords. If done correctly you could literally own the first page of Google for some keywords!

This is not a million dollar campaign though and may generate a sale or two per day or more or less depending on lots of variables. But if you can pump one of these out a month you could easily be making $100 a day in a few months!

Where To Start

Start by finding a product you want t promote the best place to do this is at clickbank analytics here you can see products and locate products much easier then the clickbank search option lets you. I tend to stick to niches that rarely change and alot of people want. Weight loss is one, it never changes and people will always want it. Where something like the nintendo WII has a limited life. Choose you niches wisely so they last along time!

The very next thing you need to do is find 30 low competition keywords for your product that you think you can dominate easily. There are many ways to do this but i have found that googles keyword tool works the best.

The subject of keyword research can take up a whole book so i will leave it at that.If you want a few advanced keyword research techniques that are out of the box and very effective check out

After You Have Your Keywords

Start out by starting a squidoo lense based around three low competition keywords in your niche. You can do more but i find that if written well and set up right three lenses work out well for me.

I try and setup my lenses around problem keywords instead of general ones. What i mean is set them up so they help people solve a problem. For example the keyword "How To Make My Belly Flatter" would probably peak more interest then "weight Loss"

To build a squidoo lense the right way I recommend One Week Marketing. It will walk you through a lens setup step by step and give you valuable tips that will help yo make money fast!

Once Your Lenses Are Built

Next by a domain name relative to your offer and use it to redirect to your clickbank offer. I use since they are reliable, priced well and let you redirect for free so no hosting is needed!

Try and get something that is related to your niche,if you are in the bowling niche a domain name like would work!

Start Writing Articles!

Next I write 10 articles to link to each lense (30 articles total) and submit them to the best article directory on the internet first. Each article is roughly 250-300 words and will include an anchor text link to my squidoo lense and and regular old with a redirect link to the offer i am promoting.

Once this is done I take these articles and rewrite each one 6 times. You can do this by hand or use a article spinner, i use Magic Article Rewriter its not free but it is very much worth it if you are serious about making money. Just remember to spin both the title and resource boxes to get maximum effect and google rankings!

When I have my spun article i submit them to the following article directories. Keep in mind you do not have to spin them all at once. I usually spin one or two a day due to time constraints!

I also will auto submit them to 100 other low PR directories once the articles are approved at the main directories. I use Article Post Robot to automate the mass submission. The great part is that you can load content in spinning syntax into APR and it will submit a unique article to each directory.

In Addition To The Article Directories

Next I start two FREE blogger blogger blogs and post one of the spun articles on each one. This gives me two free blogs with 30 posts each at the end. You can use wordpress as well but i prefer blogger and its ease of use. Plus i get less spam comments from blogger blogs

Bookmarking Your Blogs and Squidoo Lenses

I do not go social book marking crazy all i do is use the two most powerful social sites that i know of digg and propeller.I digg each blog post and squidoo lense also I submit each post to propeller. At propeller get about 25 friends and join relative groups and share each submission with the groups and your friends. They will prop your story and get it seen more and ranking better.

Just make sure your titles are the low competition keyword you are targeting and usually these will show up in Google within hours.

Your post will get propped and usually rank well in google and drive traffic to your blogs. Most article directories cannot be bookmarked so do not even try! Try and get as many friends as you can to help yo prop your articles. Submit some mainstream news stories every so often to avoid looking like a spammer

I also submit the RSS feeds from my blogger blog,article directories and squidoo lenses to the popular RSS directories (you can also start your own ezine here)

In addition I also submit both my blogs to this site alone brings in a few visitors a day so its worth , best part is it's.

Once this plan is complete I have 120 articles,two blogs with 30 pages each and three squidoo lenses,rss feed directories all getting traffic and making me money.

At this point I say move onto another niche and let this one run it course and see how the sales go.If researched correctly and using well written articles this plan should generate about50-100 hops per day. I will leave the campaign alone at this point but if the sales come in and If it looks good then write more articles and promote it more.

If it does not perform then all you have lost is time, and it should make a sale here and there so its not a total loss!

I will be posting some tricks i use for article marketing, blog set up and other things that help just a little bit!

Clickbank Article Marketing-April 2009 Earnings Update

Well its been awhile since i posted last on my progressbut i wanted to report my earnings for April. It was not a very good month. Total profit for the month was $296.88

I did get hammered with an unusual amount of returns in April. The returns amounted to $85.90 so the actual sales for the month were $382.78 but the returns just pulled me down.

I kind of took it real easy in April and did not write that many articles. I am starting again and the sales for the month of May so far are $202.92 with no returns so far this month. So it appears as long as the articles are flowing out the money comes in.

I did have my biggest day online in May as well $73 and change from clickbank and $24 from another affiliate sales through paypal.

I am starting to think that this method of redirecting my domain to the merchants sales page may only have so much potential unless you have thousands of articles out there.

With that said I may switch over to CPA or actual products and article market those and see what happens.

I started to mess with squidoo and try and promote a product ont here. Hopefully that will go well and i will report back on that in the future.

Sorry for the short post but its nice here in Wisconsin and i gotta run outside and play with my kids!

Effective Tip For Finding Article Marketing Topics

Just a quick and effective article market tip that i picked up from
digging for gold

Head over to yahoo answers and type in a keyword for your niche in to the Yahoo Answers search box.This will allow you to see what questions are being asked over there that relate to your niche.

Find a few questions that seem like people would commonly ask. Then using the yahoo answers search box put the question in the box and see how many people have looked for that question or related questions. If it seems fairly popular write and answer to that question.

Submit your answer in the form of an article to ezinearticles and other top article directories. Articles that have titles that include phrases like "How can I,How Do I,Will I,How To" Will do very well on the article directories and should drive you some decent traffic to your sites or blogs.

For example if some posts a question "How do I Lose Weight Cheaply" Your article title could be "Weight Loss Tips-How Can I Lose Weight Cheaply"

If you are writing for a new niche you are not quite familiar with You can even use the answers that were given to the question to help you write your own unique article,just make sure to rewrite it in your own words. This simple but effective strategy works well.
