    I have a question about reading duckbirds post.... I am a member of profit lance and use clickbank.com. I was wondering if I am doing the hoplinks right. I just get a product I want to promote, make the hoplink with my name on it and copy and paste it to my blog or website as a link. When people actually buy the product I get the percentage of the sale of that product listed on clickbank? If what I am doing is correct, why am I not making any profits through the clickbank since February after promoting the products. What other ways can I advertise my products or get onto a search engine.

    Have you checked to make sure you are actually getting the clicks? Like for instance, click on your own hoplink for one of the products you are promoting and click thru to the payment page, scroll down to the bottom where it says - affiliate=*** if your nickname is there, then you are okay on that part....


    As far as marketing - there are so many ways to market things online... I am personally a fan of SBI which is a program that will help you learn the ins and outs of seo and getting found thru search engines, as you build your website... but I also use free methods such as blogs, squidoo and article writing...

    Some products are harder to market than others.... wah stuff seems to be the some of the hardest... [​IMG]

    Try some free traffic exchange site~

    It really help you boost traffic but, not much expected sales!

    If you really want make sale, Use Google adwords !

    It costs money, but same time you can expect many visitors and,

    sales!

    Good luck to your business~


    Happy day~^^[​IMG]

    What do you mean you can't find any good electronics? Can we see one of your blogs so we can help you out?

    well mainly what i meant by cant find good electronics is like, Digital cameras, hdtvs etc. All I have found were books to sell. I am have setup a website, unsure if i can post it in the message but here it goes... www.greenmovement.110mb.com and it is basically gonig to be setup with hoplinks for going green and about gonig green, with solar energy wind etc recycling, and organic foods. I am going to try and firgure out how to get it on google, msn, yahoo, ask etc for free im not sure if that is possible. i was thinking of creating a mysace for it as it would come up fast as I just type in any info about me and my myspace pops up. Any ideas?

    Hi Fireman,

    I agree with M5, you can join CJ (Commission Junction - a huge affiliate network with lots of big name advertisers. Several of them have electronic goods.) and Shareasale.

    Many companies now have affiliate programs. Clickbank is for digital products - software, ebooks, etc...

    I belong to several affiliate programs and I recommend that for most affiliates.

    ok thanks to both you, mountainmom and newbie shield, i have joined in with commission junction and i was thinking about joining the shareasale but they are not accredited witht he BBB so is that safe or not? I am not sure if i am doing the cj site right as well. i applied to promote products (5 so far) and i got one reply back and I think i just install the link on my website as like i do with clickbank... right?

    Hi Fireman,

    Yes, Shareasale has a good reputation. A BBB endorsement is a plus but not every legit site has one. I wouldn't let the lack of endorsement be a deciding factor unless you spot some fishy looking things on the site or hear bad rumors.

    fireman5214: I think i just install the link on my website as like i do with clickbank... right?
    Though there may be some minor differences in the details, all affiliate programs and affiliate links work pretty much the same, yes.

    Besides, BBB accreditation is hogwash. It's basically a revenue stream
    for the BBB. Just about any business can get accredited by paying a
    fee.

    Hi Robin,

    Many companies are now offering affiliate programs. It's free marketing for them and commissions for us. Everyone walks away happy [​IMG]
