One of the best things about working at ClickBank is looking through our huge catalog of products and seeing thousands of examples of people who are making their lives, and the lives of others, a little better by sharing their expertise. What makes ClickBank so special, even among affiliate networks, is that you don’t have to be a huge company or have a big inventory of products to participate. You just have to be an expert, and be willing to share that expertise with others.
You may be saying to yourself, “I’m not an expert at anything! If I was, I’d be out lecturing or already have a book written.” OK, so you might not be a whiz at financial planning or be able to write a 300-page book on car repair, but if you start thinking about your hobbies and interests, I’m confident that you can find your expertise. Do your friends go crazy over your special chocolate chip cookies and beg you for the recipe? Is your garden the pride of the neighborhood? Have you walked a family member through setting up a secure wireless network in their home, or removing spyware from their PC? Then you’re an expert!
The beauty of ClickBank is that we have many product publishers who make a nice modest income from sharing their expertise in areas like these, even when they’re selling their products for $20 or $30. Sure, they’re not necessarily going to retire on the money they make from them, but wouldn’t it be nice to make a little bit of extra cash by sharing knowledge you would normally give away for free? It’s especially nice when you know that your expertise is helping others and making their lives a little better.
Take a little time and think about what makes you an expert, and then take a crack at creating a product and selling it through ClickBank. With your knowledge and a huge group of affiliates looking to promote great products, you’ll never know how successful you can be unless you try!
