How To Choose A Winning Clickbank Product To Promote

When choosing a Clickbank product to promote as an affiliate you want to choose one that will convert well and make you a lot of sales.  It is advisable to have a good solid criteria to follow when selecting a product to promote to increase your chances of choosing a profitable product.  Some of the factors you want to consider are gravity score, competition, the sales copy, commission payout, product price and repeat commissions.  Let’s take a look at each of these in more detail:

Gravity Score

When first starting out it is best to stick to products with a gravity score between 20 and 50.  These will be products that are converting and do have affiliates actively promoting them, but at the same time aren’t saturated with competition.

When you become a little more experienced with affiliate marketing, then start promoting products with a gravity score of over 50.  There will be a little more competition, but with more affiliate promoting these products they are likely to be better converting products.

Don’t promote anything with a gravity score below 20 as these are not likely to convert well.


You should look at how much competition there is for promoting a particular product.  You don’t want too much competition but at the same time you don’t want zero competition.

If you look at the Pay Per Click ads on Google and see there are no ads for that product then chances are that people have tried to promote that product without success.  If there are PPC ads for that product then those people must be seeing some success to continue to pay for advertising.

So zero competition usually means there is no demand for that product.  So even though you don’t want too much competition, you do want some competition.

Sales Copy

The gravity score is not the only way to evaluate whether a product will convert well.  In fact, gravity scores can’t always be relied on as some vendors will boost their gravity score by selling their product through a number of their own Clickbank accounts.

It is always advisable to check out the sales page of the product you are considering promoting so you can decide whether you think it would convert well.  Generally, if you read the sales page and it makes you want to buy the product yourself, then it will be a good sales page.  If a sales page does nothing for you and you have no interest in the product at all after reading it, then it might not be a very good converting sales page.

Commission Payout and Product Price

When choosing a product to promote you want to look at the price of the product and how much of that you will receive in commission.  If a product pays out only a small commission then it might not be worth promoting. You don’t want to put in a lot of effort for very little return.

Higher priced products will pay out a higher commission and are often just as easy to sell as lower priced products.  If a product has a good gravity score then it might be worth trying to promote it.  It is better to promote a higher priced product that pays out well than promoting a lower priced product that pays out less than $20 per sale.

Repeat Commissions

Another factor that makes a product good to promote is if it has the opportunity for repeat commissions.  This might occur with a product that has a membership site where a customer will pay a monthly membership fee and you can earn a commission every month on that membership fee.  It doesn’t take any extra effort to promote a membership product than it does to promote a one time payment product so you might as well go for one that will pay you commission every month.


When looking for a good Clickbank affiliate product to promote, take into consideration a gravity between 20 and 50, not too much competition but still a little, high commission payout, a good sales copy and if possible a repeat monthly commission.  If you can get a product that matches this criteria then you will have a very good product to promote and earn affiliate commissions.

6 Tips On Why You Should Be Making Money With Blogs

Yes, more and more people are making money with blogs and there are so many ways to do it!

1. Market your services in your blog. A lot of people think of blogs as places to vent or shout your opinions to the world. This is one use for blogs but you shouldn’t overlook their capacity to create customers as well. Just make sure that your posts are informative and offer value to whoever will be reading them. What kind of services can you offer? The list is endless. . .choose something that you like and do well like writing, graphic design, PPC, SEO, email campaigns, babysitting, coaching, anything goes.

2. Sell advertising space. This might be the most common way to leverage your blog to generate income. If you create a well-known blog, it’s pretty easy to sell ad space. People will come looking! For new or not as well known blogs, services such as Google’s AdSense or BlogAds enable bloggers to earn income from advertisers. AdSense is free and lets you select several ads that are consistent with the content of your blog. You get paid when readers click on the ads.

BlogAds connects bloggers with advertisers and takes a commission in return for any ad placements that result. These types of programs are the reasons that so many are now making money with blogs.

3. Ask for contributions. Some people are leary about this but if your small-business blog supports some kind of cause or issue, it doesn’t hurt to ask for reader support. And readers who become loyal to your blog are especially willing to make a little contribution. Programs like PayPal make it easy to establish a simple on-site contribution collection button.

4. Help sell other people’s products and/or services. Let your blog be the conduit between readers and online sites offering various goods and services. Just go to ClickBank or Commission Junction and pick out an affiliate product or service to sell – it should be something that goes along with the content of your blog. Or you can create a new blog specifically for the products you decide to promote. If you write articles about certain products that you would recommend, you can get paid a commission when someone takes you up on the offer.

Using a blog to regularly communicate with existing clients as well as other new readers is a way to fully inform them about everything your business does.

6. Keep in mind that good blogs are those that are updated regularly and frequently with original and high-quality content. Give your readers a reason to come back to your blog again and again.

More and more people are making money with blogs. Will you be one of them?

Review of WP Robot Autoblogging WordPress Plugin

I’ve used many autoblogging scripts, software and wordpress plugins over the last couple of years and if you search this blog for autoblogging, autoblog, autopost or autoposting you’ll find some informative posts on autoblogging. I’ve become somewhat of an autoblogging afficiando, so I thought I’d do a pre-Review of WP Robot just to get the information out there for anyone who is interesting in learning more about autoblogging or autoposting.

I’ve discovered one of the most important features of any autoposter is the ability to randomize and customize the post. The purpose is this is to create content that isn’t just duplicate content, your blog will do much better with unique one of a kind content and that can be accomplished by adding to, changing or subtracting from any autoblogged content. Some of the standard autoposters work with the following sources of content:

  • plr articles
  • ebay
  • amazon
  • clickbank
  • datafeeds
  • rss
  • reprint articles
  • images such as Flickr
  • public domain content
  • plr ebooks
  • youtube
  • yahoo answers

There are many more sources of content that can be autoposted and as time goes on creative minds find new sources of content to use for autoposting along with new methods of autoposting. The methods and means of autoblogging are only getting better and better.

autoblogging or autoposting wordpress plugin

autoblogging or autoposting wordpress plugin

Recently I ran into a new and powerful Autoblogging WordPress Plugin called WP Robot. I hope to have a copy soon, however, let me tell you want the plugin claims to be able to do.

First, let me clear something up. You might be wondering, “Why is Scott telling me about a plugin he hasn’t even used?”  That’s a good question. First let me tell you there is a free version of WP Robot and I wanted anyone who was interested in autoblogging not to be limited by the lack of funds… can try it out with the free version of WPRobot and you can even start making some cash with it. Secondly, I believe this WP Robot is one of the most complete Autoposting plugins available yet!

Most autoblogging scripts or plugins come with the ability to post from one source, some even give you a couple of sources but I have not run into any that can create posts from 7 or 8 different sources and allows you to mix up the posts.

You should also know there are several different licenses available. Anything from a common ebay module to a developers license for the entire set of modules.

Wp Robot is set up with different modules. Each module can run by itself or you can purchase the entire set of modules. The modules are as follows:

Amazon Module
Article Module
eBay Module
Clickbank Module
Yahoo Answers Module
Translation Module
Flickr Image Module

Although I don’t have the full version yet, based on what I’ve read it appears as though this set of modules can be edited and configured to post in very unique and different ways. This is a big benefit for anyone who is an autoposter because no 2 posts will ever be the same. For anyone who fears the duplicate content penalty, this should make them very comfortable. Also, the posts can be configured so that it is next to impossible for the Google spiders to tell where and how the content was imported and assembled. This means the fear of your site being de-indexed is next to zero!

I. Amazon WP Robot AutoBlogger Module

Let’s take a little closer look at some of the modules the can be included in the wprobot plugin. Starting with the Amazon Module.

The Amazon Module lets you pull in any product that is sold on Amazon, plus you can add the reviews that people post on Amazon as additional content in the form of comments to your blog post. This is an excellent way to get unique content on your blog. Here are some of the features:a

-user defined keyword determines which products are selected
-works with Amazon’s affiliate program earning you cash with every purchase
-this is really cool….you can show different information in each of your amazon blog posts such as product description, images, feature lists, reviews, number of reviews, product rating and of course the price. Add all of these or pick only 1….very cool for creating unique content
-if you want the full Amazon Description, it’s possible to scrape the entire description with would include tables and images and place in your blog post
-its unique because you can work with all international versions of Amazon
-you can completely customize the template for your Amazon posts

Consider some of these Testimonies

“WP Robot is an incredible tool for webmasters. I use it on several sites and have seen an increase in traffic and profits. One site went from $0 to an average of $5.00 a day in google adsense. I would recommend this tool to anyone with a WP blog. ”
— by Lonnie Kunkel from Website Development and Graphic Design

“I’ve been using WP Robot since it’s release and I must admit I have been hugely impressed by this plugin and highly recommend buying it. I have also recommended this to several friends. Thanks guys this has already saved my tons of work on my blogs. regards Steve”
— by Stephen Hawkins from Traffic Mystic – Web Traffic Strategies

“The only reason any one would say anything bad about WP Robot, is because they don’t want other website owners to get their hands on this amazing tool. I invested in the highest version and the results have been undeniably empowering for all my blogs.”
— by Star Riley from Support Local Business

II. Article AutoPosting Module

The Article Module will pull in and add a complete article based on your specific keyword

The articles come from 2 big article directories and select an article from the 1000’s of available articles. You can use several languages. Create your own template from the templating system. You can control whether or not you want to conform to the TOS of the article directory by including the author’s box or not! A handful of other options available.

III. eBay AutoBlogging Module

Pulling in ebay auctions is nothing new for autoblogging. However, the way WP Robot does it is very different! There’s a feature called MIX Feature which allows you to put ebay auctions into your other posts created by wp robot and just increases your chances of monetizing a blog post.

Here’s a list of features from the salespage of wp robot:

* Create good-looking eBay auction posts on any keywords you want.
* Earn money for any sale you refer through the eBay affiliate program.
* Add up to 6 different auctions to a single post.
* Select which eBay website to use (i.e. ebay,com,,, etc)
* Editable post template and many other options, i.e. for better sorting and targeting results.
* MIX feature: Add auctions to posts created by any of WP Robot’s other modules via the templating system.

IV. Clickbank AutoPosting Module

Clickbank gets more powerful and diverse every day. Clickbank makes a lot of people (affiliates) a lot of money and WP Robot allows you to drip feed posts with Clickbank products into your wordpress blog posts. The template feature is a power method of creating unique blog posts and helps make these Clickbank ads different than any other you might see. The best part of the Clickbank AutoBlogging Module is that the folks at WP Robot offer this module for FREE!!

V. Yahoo Answers AutoBlog Module

Yahoo Answers can be an excellent source of subject related content for any blog. The way that content is pulled into your blog and formatted is what can make a difference on whether someone reads your post or skips past it and how it is interpreted by the search engines and indexing spiders. WP Robot allows you to post your questions and answers in different languages. You can zoom into any niche or topic by choosing targetd questions from YA. Filter your results by categories along with an entire list of options that can be uniquely customized.

VI. YouTube AutoPost Module

Google still goes nuts over video and adding Youtube videos to your blog can really turn it into a traffic magnet. Videos really do add to the stickiness of your blog, I know that I’ve personally been stopped by videos and watched videos from different blog posts even if I had no intention of staying at a site….the videos kept me there. WP Robot adds the comments from Youtube which creates additional content because they become comments on your site. You can limit and pull the videos according to language. Once again, the template system allows you to create something unique, vary the size of the videos, which videos are displayed according to keyword and how they are displayed.

VII. Translation Auto-Posting Module

There’s a whole section on the WP Robot site for the translation module. This can be a very powerful feature because it works with the other modules translating them into other languages. Check out the details on the site for more info.

VIII. Flickr Image Auto-Blogging Module

Images are really cool. I design website templates, headers, ebook covers and software boxes….there’s nothing like an appropriate image to draw attention, create stopping power and motivate a website visitor to make a purchase…, I’m loving this Flickr Image Autoposting Module!  If you want to increase the stickiness of a blog post….add an image! With this module you can add images to your posts or create an entire blog of images.

Once again, the MIX feature can work with templates and add images from Flickr to all your other modules where you are able to mix up the blog post into a completely unique combination of content….very powerful!

Here’s a the feature list as posted on the WP Robot Site:

* Post images on any topic to your weblog on autopilot!
* Uses the official Flickr API (a API key is necessary to use this module).
* Create posts exactly like you want them to look with the templating option.
* Many customizable options, including choice of image size, licensing and sort mode.
* MIX feature: Add images to posts created by any of WP Robot’s other modules via the templating system. With this powerful feature you can for example automatically add relevant thumbnails to articles posted by the article module.

Keep in mind, you can purchase a single module or you can combine modules. If you purchase all the modules you’ll qualify for a significant discount. For instance, if you wanted the Flickr Module it would only cost you $20.00 and if you wanted the Clickbank Module….guess what, it’s yours free of charge.

The folks over at WP Robot seem to have created a full featured customizable WordPress plugin that is by far the most complex autoblogging or autoposting wordpress plugin available. You get instant delivery after you purchase. There is a full money back guarantee and of course you will get full updates along with free support.

Most users will want to use this plugin for supplementing their blogs to keep them active. Some might want to create blogs entirely out of autoposted material. What I find very interesting is that the folks at WP Robot have added an Autoblogging Developers License which will allow you to build blogs and then flip them. Could keep you busy for a long time, plus, this has become very popular and profitable if sold in the right venue!

I hope to get a full package very soon. I’ll take the package for a full ride and create a couple of demo sites so you can see what is possible…..I’ll contact the folks at WP Robot and see if I can offer the site in some sort of raffle so keep your eyes peeled for a notice!

I’d really be surprised if you made it through this long post. If you did, go over to WP Robot and pick up the full package….as I write this it is on sale for a nice discount. If funds are short, grab a module or 2 and try your hand at autoblogging to give you a feel on how these plugins work. You can always grab a free version of the autoposting plugin, check out the terms at WP Robot.

Affiliate Link Cloaker Best Link Cloaker on the Market!

I consider myself somewhat of an expert on link cloaking and link redirects. Well, if I’m not an expert I surely have collected just about every link cloaker or link redirect script I’ve seen in the last 6 years or so. Today I think I’ve seen one of the most unique link cloaking applications I’ve ever come across, called Advanced Link Cloaker. I know the author and consider him a friend, Ali is a software developer and specializes in scripts and applications for internet marketers. When Ali comes out with a new script you can bet it is something unique and effective!

Advanced Link Cloaker is unique because it allows you to actually embed things into the affiliate page you are promoting. I’m talking about embedding your optin forms, videos, bookmarking buttons, bonuses, other promotions…..really just about anything. I can hardly believe it, let’s say you have an affiliate link for jet skis on ebay, first you paste the link in Affiliate Link Cloaker, now you want to offer the page visitor a “Guide to Purchasing Used Jet Skis”, so you create an optin code and paste that into the application and click another button and Voila!!! you created an ebay page with your optin form on it…… cool is that?

I just got my copy of Advanced Link Cloaker and I’m playing around with it now. This has to be one of the most powerful applications I’ve seen in a long time and will surely boost affiliate sales for many marketers… only concern is that ebay, amazon, clickbank and others will somehow think this is an unfair advantage. So…..I guess its kind of like Google in the early days……use Advanced Link Cloaker now and make a ton of cash while you can. Of course I am not implying that this will automatically make you a ton of money…..I need to say that to keep the lawyers away, but I would certainly grab a copy and give it a try if you do any affiliate marketing.

Watch the videos for an idea of how easy and quickly you can create affiliate pages. I’ll report latter this week to let you know how it’s working after I give it a try.

Redirect Links for Clickbank Message Set

I sell an assortment of clickbank message sets that are designed to be used with an autoresponder. Currently I have a set of a 52 Health Related Messages for any autoresponder that are related to the health niche.

These email messages are designed to promote clickbank products that have good sales and are related to the health niche. All you have to do is copy and paste the message into your autoresponder and then include your clickbank affiliate link.

Included with the package is 2 scripts that can be used to create redirect links or cloaked links for your clickbank affiliate links. I had one of my customers get a little confused so I tried to explain how to use the scripts for creating a redirect link for their clickbank affiliate link. I thought it might be helpful to anyone else who is having problems creating redirect links and stumbles upon this page :)

Hi Joe

Thanks for the kind words and for your purchase!

Sorry to hear that there is some confusion with redirects.

There is a READ_ME file in the download. It has the instructions for hiding your clickbank links. The process is called a “redirect” or “link cloaking”

You are given 2 files.


For the first one, right click the file and open it in notepad or some text editor. Copy the code and open a blank file in notepad…now paste the code into that file.

Next look for all instances of “” and replace with your clickbank link.

Next save the file as anything you’d like…such as joeslink.html and use an ftp program to upload it to your server.

Typically people will create a folder on your directory and call it something like “recommends” and then save the new file in that folder.

So you would have …..which will redirect to your clickbank link.

I like using the php redirect.

In the file “hide-hoplink-php.php” you’ll find a snippet of php code like below:


Copy that snippet of code and paste it into a blank or empty notpad file.

Remove the url and insert your clickbank or other url.

Now save the file as “joeslink.php” and upload it to the your website. The same deal applies….you could create a folder called “recommends” and save joeslink.php in that folder.

So your url will look like

Remember by doing redirects or cloaking you maintain control of your links and it isn’t so obvious that it’s an affiliate link….will help keep most visitors from stealing your commissions.

You might want to check out a blog post I did a short while ago at :

As far as I know you can’t do redirects through xsitepro. You’ll be able to manage them better if you use a free ftp program like Filezilla to upload the files and manage your links.

If you still end up having problems and not understanding the concept….just go ahead and use your clickbank links in your autoresponder messages. You can change them when you get cloaking and redirects figured out.

If it will help, I could create a quick screen capture tutorial and show you how to do it, but won’t be able to get to it for a week or so.

Hope this helps,


You can use the 52 Health Related Autoresponder Messages in conjunction with just about any health related product. The great part of owning this message set is that the work is already done for you, the messages are written and include a clickbank affiliate product to promote. The messages are futher categorized in Health subjects so you can use all the messages or just some of them in an autoresponder series.
