Optimizing Your Instagram Page For Clickbank

Before a surfer heads out for a big surfing trip, he'll wax his surfboard to ensure optimal grip for when he's riding those waves.

Likewise, you'll need to make sure that your page is primed and ready to roll if you're trying to figure out how to promote Clickbank products on Instagram. Much of this has to do with creating a popular Instagram account. After all, the more clicks you get, the more “bank” you’ll earn. First of all, you’ll need to pick a niche or category. Don’t make the mistake of creating a vague, all-encompassing Instagram page. Instead, pick a very specific niche, such as fitness or fashion. From that point on, all of your posts should be related to your chosen niche.

Take a look at some of the most successful Instagram pages out there. If you look hard, you'll be able to spot the Clickbank Instagram influencers because they all share some similar characteristics.

Things that successful Affiliate Instagram pages have in common:

  • Their profiles look incredible. This is kind of a no-brainer, because having an attractive page will obviously draw people in.
  • They have a lot of followers. 
  • They post every single day. This is crucial, and it's one of the biggest reasons why certain pages become more popular with time while others fizzle out. Don't get lazy. Run an IG page like a business - even if you're only devoting a few minutes of work to it each day.
  • Big Instagram pages are always pretty “real.” What we mean is that they’re not trying to fake a certain lifestyle, or lie to their followers. They look legit, so people trust them. And because they're niche-specific, they also attract a certain type of follower. 
  • They are followed by Tier 1 users. This means that the majority of their followers come from the USA, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and other similar countries.
  • They make posts that are engaging. People are constantly commenting on their posts, liking them, and interacting with the page in some way or another. Successful Instagram pages spark a reaction in their followers. They encourage their followers to get involved, by whatever means necessary.


How To Get More Followers

 

So by now you're probably getting the idea that it's going to be pretty hard to successfully promote Clickbank products on Instagram if you have no followers.

And unfortunately, there's no magical way to get more of them. If there was, we’d all have Instagram pages with millions of followers. Even the biggest profiles out there are always striving to grow their pages, and it’s not often easy.

That being said, there is a strategy that many rely on these days. It’s pretty simple, and it simply involves following people who are interested in your niche. The assumption is that some of them will follow you back if your profile catches their eye.

In order to make this strategy work, you need to have an attractive page that really shines. After people follow you back, you have the option to unfollow them (although some might see this as an insult, and they’ll stop following you.)

The other option is to make use of an Instagram bot. These bots will seek out users that have been liking and commenting on pages related to your niche. Some of these bots can even comment on people’s posts. It’s a great way to get people’s attention, and tempt them into following you. These bots can potentially win you thousands of followers in a short amount of time.

But how do you seek out potential followers manually, without the use of a bot? It’s a lot more simple than you might think. Check out some of the most popular Instagram pages within your category or niche. Find out who follows these pages, and simply target the followers directly. Bots do have a bit of an advantage, however. With bots, you can target certain types of people using bot settings, such as their country of origin. This could prove to be very important.

 

How To Build A Reputation On Instagram

 

Building trust is a long-term process. You aren’t going to win over your fans overnight. You’ll gradually start to build a solid Instagram reputation as you gain more followers. It’s that simple!

The hard part is being patient when your nights are filled with dreaming about being one of Clickbank's top earners.

It’s also important to make sure that your fans are actually engaged by your posts. Ask your followers interesting questions. Spark a conversation! You might even consider running contests and giveaways to maximize the people who comment on your posts. 

It becomes something of a feedback loop. As you get more followers, other people will start to see you as a legitimate Instagram account. As your posts get more comments, more people will get excited, and they’ll comment as well. If your posts get tons and tons of likes, other people will also be more likely to hit that like button.

This can be slightly frustrating for those starting out on Instagram.

How can you expect to get more followers if the only way to grow your Instagram page is to have more followers? It makes no sense, right?

Well, it might be tough to grow an Instagram page, but there are many strategies you can use to speed the process up. And you can take comfort in knowing that once you reach a certain number of followers, there’s a “domino effect.” Once you reach a certain point, your page will suddenly explode.

The only thing you really need to worry about when you start out is posting quality content. This is the most important thing to keep your followers engaged and loyal. It’s far more important than using bots or other methods to “hack” Instagram.

Remember, the most successful Instagram pages out there are real and genuine. They’re not trying to be something they’re not. Post things that represent your unique personality, and you’ll strike a chord with a lot of people.  

 

Promoting On Instagram With Clickbank

 

Let’s get back to the meat and potatoes. After all, you're trying to climb the ranks and become a top Clickbank affiliate, right?

When you’ve chosen a solid niche and optimized your page by adding followers and engaging posts, it'll be time to head over to Clickbank.

Clickbank for beginners in 2021 can be kind of intimidating. Basically, you earn money by posting promotions on your Instagram page in the form of affiliate marketing links. Clickbank provides a wide variety of different promotions to choose from, and they all have the potential to be very profitable.

There isn't necessarily a best niche for Clickbank products, but choosing the best promotion for your page is an important step, and you should take your time when thinking about what you want to promote on Instagram.

Obviously, you should promote offers that relate to your category for free. If your Instagram page targets a specific niche, then you should be selling products that are related to that niche. Ask yourself which products your followers might want to buy.

The marketplace is full of all kinds of different promotions, so the best Clickbank product to promote in 2021 is going to be the one that appeals to your audience. And there are tons of products out there that appeal to multiple niches. These are things that everyone wants, like sunglasses or watches.

The great thing about Clickbank is that once it’s set up, you don’t have to put much work into it. Clickbank provides you with recurring, passive income, which is always an attractive thing. Every time someone clicks on your affiliate marketing link and purchases a product, you earn commission.

It’s that simple.

Additionally, there are ways to establish multiple streams of income using Clickbank. You can even earn commission on multiple products while only promoting one product on Instagram. Using certain systems, you can promote up to ten products for every single product you promote on Instagram.

So how much money are we talking here? It all depends on how much you sell, and how many followers are using your affiliate links. But using Clickbank with multiple revenue systems can potentially earn you up to $400 a month, even if your Instagram page is just starting out. That might not seem like a lot of money, but remember, it’s all passive income. You’re not actually putting any real work into this revenue stream.
