I’m writing this Clickbank University review to help you decide if it’s a good program for you.
I did sign up for ClickbankU and went through all of their training about a year ago. There were two main tracks. The first was how to be an affiliate marketer using Clickbank products. The second was how to become a Clickbank product creator.
Both had a lot of professional videos that were engaging to watch. There were plenty of supporting documents like checklists. Their support was responsive.
And they had an exclusive community where you could chat with your peers and get faster answers.
I believe Clickbank University 2.0 is going to be even better since they were always asking for feedback on how to make it better.
Is Affiliate Marketing For Me?
Affiliate marketing is a good long-term business strategy. You need to spend time up front setting up the website, writing reviews, and building up a regular schedule of finding new products to recommend.
For some sites, you will want to build up an email list. Then you can earn affiliate commissions sending your recommendations out in your emails.
For other sites, the affiliate recommendations can either be static reviews on your site or they can be links to a different kind of post.
I should step back a second and state that you may wish to update your review if the product gets updated.
Now, let me explain what I meant by the second type.
I have a website Cook Yourself Thin. I recommend cookbooks and cooking equipment using Amazon affiliate products. They’re embedded in the posts. Additionally, I recommend a free book on the Primal lifestyle. All the customer needs to do is pay shipping and handling.
That’s actually someone else’s product, and I get a commission for every book someone gets.
Right now, it isn’t working out so well, so I’m looking into testing a different product. There are a lot of Paleo products in Clickbank.
So affiliate marketing isn’t always one and done. You may need to test a few similar products to see what works best for your audience. Or you may need to write a bunch of reviews that compare the products.
The key is to show the value of the product so people want to buy it. Once they do, you get your percentage of the sale.
Is Product Creation For Me?
I released my first product this year after working intensely on it for a year. I wanted to test endlessly to ensure that the information was useful, usable and current.
I’m not sure I want to do another one.
Some people love creating products and it’s easy for them. If you enjoy teaching, this could be a great path for you since you earn a lot more money.
What Will Clickbank University Teach Me?
Clickbank University 2.0 has over 200 step-by-step training videos created by leading experts.
They also offer live weekly classes. I’m loving this trend of offering lots of mentoring to answer questions directly for students.
They also offer bonus courses that get added regularly. And they still have the exclusive community.
Plus, they’ve added in phone support.
Once you’re done, you will be able to take the knowledge for identifying good Clickbank products and apply that to other affiliate sites like JVZoo, Shareasale, and others.
Clickbank University is teaching you how to have a business rather than just dumping information on you and saying “good luck” like a lot of other training.
So whether you’re starting out or have been trying to make affiliate marketing (or product creation) work for some time without success, I do recommend you check out Clickbank University 2.0.
