Top Tips from Marketplace Millionaires
Steve Perry, Inside Sales, ClickBank
As an inside sales representative at ClickBank, I seek out well-established entrepreneurs who are ready to capitalize on the immense opportunities within our online marketplace.
Given that my role requires me to exclusively recruit and support top-tier online vendors and business owners whose brands already have a following online, I wanted to take this opportunity to share important success tips that are useful to Internet and affiliate marketers at all levels, including those who are just starting out online.
The following tips represent lessons I have learned from working with so many Internet marketing superstars in my nearly three years at ClickBank:
- Never underestimate the value of split testing. The most successful vendors (and affiliate marketers, for that matter) rely on split testing, which means creating two versions of their pitch pages, lead capture pages, offers, sales copy, etc. to see which converts at the highest level. Although split testing does require additional work, I have repeatedly witnessed the profitable impact this practice has on members within our marketplace.
- Always learn from experts. Top Internet and affiliate marketers are often the busiest and hardest to reach. However, there are other ways to benefit from their experience. The ClickBank blog often features articles written by these very same experts, people who have achieved enormous success online using the strategies and tactics shared in our blog. Another resource is online forums, where experts often share important insights with the online community.
- Make networking an ongoing priority. Today’s most successful online marketers place tremendous value on cultivating and growing their network on an ongoing basis. Whether you are a vendor seeking out affiliates to promote your product or an affiliate marketer looking for new products to promote, it’s crucial that you get to know people within your niche, within the ClickBank marketplace, and elsewhere. While email and Skype are useful tools, face-to-face networking at events remains the most powerful way to foster relationships.
- Invest in strategic partnerships. The highest-earning vendors reap huge rewards from the partnerships they form with JV brokers and/or affiliate managers, seasoned professionals who have a talent for attracting and motivating the best and biggest affiliate marketers. Forming the right partnerships with JV brokers like JV NotifyPro, Willie Crawford or Travis Stephenson can catapult your business to entirely new levels of success.
- Profit from the ClickBank marketplace. With over 50,000 products to promote, ClickBank delivers an immense amount of opportunity to you and your online business. Many of the most successful online vendors capitalize on that potential by advertising within our marketplace, which is a great way to attract affiliate marketers. Affiliate marketers can also increase their success by getting to know the products available within their niches, and using the affiliate marketing information and tools many top vendors provide.
Whether your online business is new or established, the ClickBank marketplace offers a host of cutting edge advantages, including state-of-the-art link tracking that ensures that your online business runs smoothly each and every day.
I look forward to welcoming you to ClickBank and helping you build an even more profitable online business.
