INTRODUCTION

One of the most popular places to sell info-products/ebooks is ClickBank. They make it easy for you to sell your item and also easy for affiliates to sell your item for you. In this guide I'll show you several examples of people selling items on ClickBank that they created from books in the Public Domain – including one of my own products. You can see these examples in the two videos that go along with this guide. I'll also give you a basic outline of what you need to get started selling your item on ClickBank plus links to several excellent checklists and help pages that ClickBank has put together to help you get selling ASAP. To Your ClickBank Success!

Examples of PD items on ClickBank: These are people I've found online that are making money with Public Domain books like the ones I teach you how to find in PDME: These folks took Public Domain books, edited them and created their own, UNIQUE product from them. IMPORTANT NOTE: These items were created from PD books – but, since the sellers have created their own UNIQUE items from them – they are NO LONGER PD. Meaning, DO NOT purchase these items and use them – that would be ILLEGAL and you could be sued for copyright infringement. These are all referenced in the PD on CB video: Anatomy Drawing Secrets http://www.anatomydrawingsecrets.com/ Sells for $14.95 To create an item like this, look for PD books about Drawing, how to draw, how to illustrate, how to paint...etc. Vintage Crochet Patterns http://my-crochet.com Sells for $19.95 & $29.95 To create an item like this, look for PD books about crochet, knitting, needlecraft...etc. House Plant Secrets http://www.houseplantsecrets.com/ Sells for $14.95 To create an item like this, look for PD books about gardening, house plants, african violets, rose care, bonsai plants...etc.

What You Need to Get Your Product on ClickBank 1.)Your Product You have your ebook done and ready to go already. It's in PDF format. If you have more than one eBook, you can zip them together in a “Zip” file or let your customers download them individually – or both!. 2.) Keyword Research You've already done some keyword research and you know the keywords you need to be using for your niche. (I like using MicroNicheFinder and the Google keyword tool for this) 3.) Get Your Spot on the Web Now you need a URL (web site) for your product. Use some of your niche keywords in the website URL. You can purchase Domain Names for only $7.49 each at GoDaddy.com by CLICKING HERE. For hosting I recommend HostGator. I like their "Baby Plan" that lets you host unlimited domains! Use Coupon Code: PublicDomainSource to get your first month of hosting first month of hosting for a penny! NOTE: If you use HostGator for hosting your site and GoDaddy for registering domains, then you'll have to make sure the domains “point to” HostGator. Simple and easy to do as seen in this video - Changing DNS settings on GoDaddy © 2010 Beth Sawickie & www.ThePublicDomainSource.com

The URL you purchased will be where we are going to put your sales page and download/thank you page. 3.) Create your sales page. If your Copy Writing skills aren't stellar – don't worry! NOTHING is set in stone. The goal now is to get a decent sales page together – then later on you can tweak it to improve sales. Helpful Hint: If you need some help with writing your sales page, take a look at the sales pages of current products for ideas. DO NOT copy their sales page, use it as inspiration. On your sales page you'll want to: –Relate a personal story “Before finding XYZ......”, “When I told my friends about XYZ....they thought I was nuts!”. –tell the customer the BENEFITS of your product (not the features) –“Now you can learn how to XYZ in just MINUTES a day! –“Stop putting it off and use our easy methods to.....” –show that your product solves a problem, fills a need...etc.

–Invite potential customers to sign up for your e-mail list for more info, sample of your product...etc. I like using Aweber. –cost of the product –how it will be delivered –how long the delivery takes –e-mail contact for questions –Money back guarantee (CB requires 60 days) –link to ClickBank for payment. ClickBank has posted some good sales page tips HERE.

4.)Creating Your Download Page: This is what you should have on your download page: –Thank your customer for their purchase –Tell them where they can contact you for support/questions (e-mail) –clear instructions on how to download their file

–sign-up for an “updates” mailing list if this is a product that you may consider adding to/updating in the future. (I like using Aweber.) –Invite to sign up for your regular mailing list (ie. Mailing list based on that niche) Optional, but good to do: –offer another product that they can purchase “You might also like XYZ product that will tell you how to XYZ....find out more info here (affiliate link)” –Google adsense ads For an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to getting your product on ClickBank, check out the 15 Steps To Getting Your eBook On Clickbank and Making Money – ASAP!

About ClickBank Fees There is a fee for adding your product to ClickBank – it is worth it. Plus there is a discount on any future products you add. About ClickBank fees – they do take a fee for every sale you make. This is worth it because: ClickBank handles EVERYTHING! •Taking payment from your customer (credit card, PayPal) •Sending your customer the download link for your product •Handling returns (yes, you may get some of these – it happens) •Plus your item is listed in the ClickBank marketplace where affiliates will be looking to promote YOUR product for you! •ClickBank sends you $ every 2 weeks provided you've met some requirements. Clickbank's “CDR” Customer Distribution Requirement: •When you first become a “vendor” on ClickBank, they will hang on to your profits until you meet their “CDR”. You have to have gotten a certain amount of purchases from several different people using different credit card numbers. This can be ANNOYING! But once you get through that, payments can be sent every 2 weeks to you by check. They also have provisions for direct deposit. You can read more about CDR and getting paid HERE. With ClickBank, the only thing you have to do is provide support for your product – answer customer questions...etc.
