With either site, you can get referral links for products and services. These links are what is commonly referred to as Cost per Action links which means that the supplier of the link will pay out a commission after the link gets clicked and a certain action is undertaken by the end user for example buying a product. If you are interested in referring products with Clickbank or Commission Junction, all you would have to do is sign up for the free accounts and get one or more referral links. On Clickbank, there is a tab called marketplace. There, you can search the different categories of products to promote. Once you’ve chosen a product, you can click on promote link and get your referral link. The same goes for Commission Junction.
A good idea when choosing a product or service to refer would be to choose one in a niche market that you are knowledgeable about. That way, when you are trying to promote your product, you will have an advantage as a potential expert in your niche. For example, it would be easier to promote products in the niche of computers if you’ve worked in a computer store or of medical products if you are a doctor.
One of the easiest ways of promoting your product is article marketing.
Article marketing is a great way to get the news out there about your products, especially if you don’t have a big marketing budget. Article marketing is the act of writing an article which is then submitted to multiple article sites in order to drive traffic to your website or product. As long as you can inform people about topics in the niche of your product, you can successfully drive traffic to your product. Make sure to obviously include the referral links within your articles. With this method, you can get a lot of targeted traffic to click your referral links. It is best to use article sites with the highest rank to achieve the most traffic to your products.
Ezinearticles and Goarticles are good examples of high ranking article websites. Article marketing is good for SEO or search engine optimization. The higher your article shows up on the search engines, the more traffic you can get, and the more your sales can increase.
