Can a person make money from Clickbank?

Clickbank has for a while now, been a source of income for many people and it provides an alternative way to generate money from the internet, or rather - make money from selling things on the internet. Except that it does not involve selling. Here in our blogs or websites, we tend not to hear much about Clickbank, since the emphasis is mostly on Google Adsense, Amazon, eBay and Kontera. Google rule the roost as far as earning money from the internet is concerned, with Amazon coming in behind it. But I am amazed by the number of people out there who ask - "Clickbank, who are they? Are they a bank?"

How does Clickbank work then? Well, imagine going into a shopping mall and looking at the things that are for sale. Most people buy them by putting the stuff they want in a shopping cart and taking it to the cash till or check out and paying for it. On Clickbank, you are setting up a web page (it can be any kind of web page) where the product or products will be displayed, complete with photo, description and details, and of course the price. When the buyer comes along on your page and decides to buy, they click on the item in question and proceed to a check out where they process how they pay for it and presto, they receive it, usually via the internet or email. EBooks are sold over the net this way, as is music, and movies, and other items. So the products are Digital. Clickbank is easy to use and free to join. You will make money of up to 50% of what the item costs. It depends on what Clickbank set the price at. The beauty of Clickbank is that you can sell things that someone else wants sold - so you sell other people's goods and make a commission on each sale. You do not have to be the one who makes the product. So yes, you can sell stuff that others are selling.

I have created an online article complete with videos - for anyone who would like to know more about how to earn a few extra bucks from the internet. If making money is not your thing, no worries. I just hope the videos help explain a few things about Clickbank. Click the link to go to the page.
