If someone would’ve told me in my early days that you can make $653/month with Clickbank, spending literally just 15 min a day and without a website, I would be all in.
$653/month is still a lot of money!
Not only that, the following Clickbank method is very newbie friendly and falls into our favorite money making category which is:
• easy (no technical skills)
• fast (15min/day)
• scalable (able to reach at least $100-$300/day)
• autopilot (make money while you sleep)
• uses Free traffic only
• newbie friendly
• no website required
Plus, Google will actually helped us along!
You will soon discover how.
Jane is our forum maniac.
She reads a lot. And I mean A LOT. That’s probably why she finds those hidden golden gems.
A couple months ago she was browsing the Warrior Forum and found this interesting thread that said: “I spend 15 min a day while Google is doing all the hard work for me to make money online”.
I don’t remember the exact title, but it was something along those lines.
This of course caught Jane’s attention.
And yes, in fact it was exactly what it said.
Google was happily helping the guy (for free) to make those Clickbank sales.
So that day, while our staff went to lunch, Jane, with a cup of tea and a sandwich nearby, stayed in the office to see if this really works.
This Google service was actually free and very easy to use, so without much of a hassle, within 15 min it was all setup and ready to go.
When Jane mentioned the name of the thread, I instantly thought of:
– Google search
– Google Play Store
– Google Hangouts.
But it was neither of the above. Not even close.
Long story short, 15 minutes after the setup – nothing happened.
1 hour later, still nothing.
2 hours later, zero.
Ok, I said, “Jane, it’s probably too good to be true”.
“I guess this just doesn’t work.” – she whispered.
But then it started.
Google started to send us emails!
It took a bit longer than we thought, but that Google tool has actually worked.
In fact, it worked so well that Jane managed to make around $653 in one month. (See the screenshot below).
Not much, but hey, it was free money, so we will take it.
Overview of the method
OK, so, let’s break it all down into the step-by-step pieces for all of you who want to duplicate exactly what we did.
As we mentioned, the traffic for this method is free.
So you won’t be needing to spend any money.
The method works in ANY Clickbank niche.
We used this for weightloss/fitness product.
So for this particular method we used a secret Google tool called Google Alerts.
If you are logged in to your gmail account, you can access it here:
But before you do that, let’s make things clear on what exactly the method is about.
Well, we are gonna be doing exactly what the affiliate marketing is all about: “finding people who have a certain problem and introducing them to the solution (your affiliate offer)”.
But instead of manually going to Google searching for forums, blogs and videos where our targeted audience hang out, we will automate the whole process and let the almighty Google Alerts system notify us whenever someone post anything related to our niche/product/keywords ON THE WHOLE INTERNET.
Yes, Google will send you emails with the EXACT LINK to the page almost the same minute when someone post the news, blog post, forum post or a video for your chosen niche/product!
Your only job is to click through that link and post a high quality comment. And of course do not forget to include your Clickbank affiliate link 🙂
Google Alerts is scanning the whole internet in a real time and is notifying you when a new blog post (that match your entered keywords in the google alerts) appear, so that you can be the first to comment on!
Jane posted around 4 to 6 blog comments each day spending just 15 to 20 minutes a day.
The more comments she left, the more traffic she started to get.
And it was extremely targeted (FREE) traffic!
Setting up Google Alerts.
To set up Google Alerts for your keywords, simply visit http://www.google.com/alerts.
Then type your keyword:
After that, go ahead and click on “Show options”.
Create an alert about.
“Create an alert about” is where you put your keyword.
You can create as many alerts as you want.
Here are a few examples of what you should be aiming for:
[keywords related to your niche]
[authors, writers, TV, Radio people related to your niche]
[anything else that’s relevant to your niche]
Be creative. Take your time to do a proper research of your niche.
Think of what kind of questions your potential buyers would ask, such as:
How to cure XYZ
How to avoid XYZ
How to stop XYZ
How to get rid of XYZ
This is a very important step if you want to find those „golden nugget“ blog posts that your competitors won’t be able to find.
Choose „As-it-happens“ (for real time results).
Select what kind of results you want to receive to your email box.
Usually we go with blogs and forums.
At first you could choose only Blogs. If you won’t get many emails – select Everything.
Select „All results“
Select your email address.
|TIP: When setting up Google Alerts, you want to add as MANY keywords as you can.|
I’m not sure how Google Alerts pick which links to send you, but from my experience having a few alerts is usually not enough. I would suggest having at least 5-20 alerts setup for one product.
What will happen next?
Google will start sending you emails with the exact links to the blog posts almost the same minute when Google index them.
Your job is now to click through that link and reply back.
Posting a comment with your affiliate link.
Blog commenting is a very powerful and long-term traffic strategy when it’s done right.
However, 90% of marketers approach this strategy wrong.
They go and post short, spammy comments on random blogs all day long and wondering why it’s not working for them?
The secret of getting traffic is about one very crucial thing:
This is why Google Alerts are so powerful.
As you see from the picture above, most comments are sorted from old to new (from top to bottom).
When you are commenting first, your comment will appear at the top, just below the original article.
All other comments will go below yours.
This means those who read the original post are most likely to notice and read your comment as well.
Without any doubt you have to write a relevant/high quality comment.
This is why I have suggested picking a niche that you are already comfortable with or at least have some minor knowledge.
Without a relevant comment, your chances of getting your comment approved is almost none.
TIP: To double or even triple your clicks, you can post 2-3 comments with completely
different names. Just make sure they are spread out nicely.
This is where you should enter your name and website link:
Walking an extra mile
What differentiates super affiliates from the rest of the crowd is that they are more likely to walk an extra mile with everything what they do.
With every extra step you make – you are going to be one step ahead of your competition.
Extra step #1. Build a review blog for your chosen product Building a review blog (even on a free blogging platform like blogger.com) could dramatically increase your conversions.
Time and time again, tests are showing that some kind of pre-sell/review page increases conversions almost all the time.
Extra step #2. Linking to the squeeze page instead of the affiliate link.
Collecting email addresses today is not just optional, it’s A MUST.
When Google Alerts are setup correctly, you should be getting around 100 alerts a day or more. Depending on how popular your niche is and the amount of keywords you put in.
What we like about this strategy is that you don’t have to be near your computer all day long.
Spend 15 minutes of your time either in the morning or in the evening to do some posting and that’s it.
By the way, if you get very similar blog posts to comment on, you can use the same comment on other blogs as well.
You don’t have to type a new comment for every blog post!
Remember, with every method you have to be patient and completely committed.
This one is not an exception.
You have to put some work to see the results.
You will see better results posting 2-3 comments daily for at least two weeks, than just posting 10 comments at once (in one day) and then you stop.
The cool part about this method is that the traffic will multiply almost every day due to the new comments/forum posts you leave every day.
And your comment will stay there for a LIFE TIME.
Now take action and good luck!
