How to Make Money from Home with This Method

To do this well, you will need some time. But not a huge amount, it's pretty much as hard work as you want it to be. By this I mean that the more you put into it the more you get out of it! If you have a full time or part time job, just doing this a couple of hours per day or week even, could bring you in a nice little extra paycheck each month.

So, how is it done?

First things first, you will need the following things.

· Sign up for a Clickbank account.

· Register for a premium USFreeads account.

The only money you will spend on this method is $9.99 a month. This is simply for the USFreeads premium account. There are other alternative accounts on USFreeads that are of no cost, however, with a premium account you can place unlimited ads. To really make money off this, you need as many ads placed as possible, so if you're serious about earning then you need a premium account.

USFreeads will be used in this method because Google is very close friends with the company. They rank them particularly high on the search engines, and this is what we want. The better the rank, the higher the level of traffic. Clickbank will be used because it is the most popular affiliate network with a huge marketplace consisting of countless different products, so there’s no limit to what you sell!

Now you have opened up a Clickbank account and a USFreeads account, keep your usernames and passwords safe. You will need to log into these accounts for as often as you work at this method, so it is essential to pick a password you will remember! Let's make some money.

1. With your Clickbank username and password ready, log in to your account. Click on 'marketplace' and choose a product you wish to promote. Now, you'll usually want to pick a product that will have a hungry audience. So in other words, pick something people want. Try to choose a product with gravity between 40-100. The gravity can be found on the details of the item and is just telling you about its popularity, sale rate, etc.

2. If you are happy with your product, click on 'promote' and you will be given a box to type in your username. Usually your username will automatically appear. If not, type it in and click OK. You will be taken to a page where you can copy the hop link for the product. Right click, copy and go to the next step.

3. Now the hop link is copied, go to your USFreeads account and log in. This part is important so listen up! It's keyword-researching time. This is probably the most crucial point to making sales consistently and gaining customer attention. Without the correct keywords, your audience will not find your product and therefore you'll not earn any money!

The title of your USFreeads live classified will determine its traffic level. So with the product you are promoting, type the name into google in quotes. View on the right hand side of the page just how many search results there are. You want to find a phrase for your title that explains the product your selling and that attracts attention. If there are more than 5000 results, your ad may not earn any money. For USFreeads, aim to find a phrase with search results between 1000-5000.

4. Another way of finding a good title that brings in lots of customers is to be a bit naughty. I suppose it’s cheating a little, but nothing major. Hehe. Go onto USFreeads and in the search box, type the name of the product you are about to promote. View each classified placed by other account holders and find out the amount of views that have been received. Anything with 100 or more views and 20 or more days left until the classified expires is good. You can copy the title and move it around a bit, because you know it will bring in the customers!

5. Content is key. This is what you include in your ad description that will sell the product and intrigue the public to buy it. View the website of the product you are promoting and simply copy and paste some relevant, eyecatching information. You can add your own writing, but the keyword from the writing on the actual site is sure to be a good selling point. Try to include some images, bold writing, and paste your hop link on the ad so that people can click on this at the end to learn more about the product.

6. Submit the ad and view it to see if it looks OK. If you are happy with it, check to see that your hop links are working. With Clickbank you will receive commission on the products you sell, sometimes you'll receive recurring payments from certain products.

7. Repeat the process. Try to submit ads as often as possible. The more you place with rich keywords, the more money you will make. This method is pretty much proven to earn you money within a week if you put the effort in.

Watch the money roll in

That's how simple is it to make money with Clickbank and USFreeads. This is a brilliant method that many people have used to make an extra income each month. You decide how much you want to earn by the amount of hours you put in. It's not hard and it can be fun. Especially when the sales start to roll in! Be sure to persevere if you do not immediately make sales, because it can take time. Or gain some help from sites like SheToldMe that help to boost your traffic immensely! Join SheToldMe here. If your ads do not seem to be attracting attention, try selling a different product or choosing better keywords. Good luck!

People should get into the habit of reading the fine print.

BethanRose (author) from South Wales on April 20, 2013:

Thanks for the updates. That sucks that they don't allow Clickbank ads anymore but hey, that's affiliate marketing for you I suppose. The good news is that the Internet is continuously growing, so there's always a new route waiting to be discovered :)

Ethan Blaze on April 19, 2013:

Yeah, they did allow clickbank ads as of 2012, but unfortunately, they don't allow it anymore. :( They should at least tell us before we upgrade the accounts... wasted $10.00

mommamogul on March 30, 2013:

To anyone reading this : You can no longer place Amazon or Clickbank ads in US Free Ads, I found out after I paid to upgrade!

"As per our ad posting policy, as of December 2012 we are not accepting ads linking to ClickBank or Amazon." Great, now you tell me...

BethanRose (author) from South Wales on April 25, 2012:

That's great that you got a sale! Stick at it and make sure you choose the best products to sell. Ones with good gravity, good conversion rates and that are worthwhile. Make your sales pitch interesting and not too pushy. Hope this helps and if things don't pick up, why not try creating a blog and selling clickbank products on there to your personal readers?

Alberto on April 24, 2012:

hi, i have been using this method for 2 months now, i have about 80 ads... i only got 1 sale (probably 2), am i doing something wrong here? does this method still working for you?

Macho79 on April 24, 2012:

did anyone success using usfreeads ?? coz I also put some ads there and got click (premium + feature) but still no sales...

BethanRose (author) from South Wales on March 11, 2012:

Thanks for all your comments. Jiro - Not sure Hubpages lets you, but try linking to a website, which then has the clickbank link on it. Hope this helps. Thanks

jiro from India on March 10, 2012:

how can i put the click bank code to hubpages

John Coviello from New Jersey on January 27, 2012:

I tried the USFreeads $9.99 annual version with 25 ads that included pictures but no fancy HTML. I got some clicks but no sales. Perhaps the $9.99 month;y version that allows fancy HTML and more dynamic ads would be more effective.

Now I am using USFreeads to promote my Hubs on HubPages. It appears to be driving some traffic to my hubs.

Faith on January 27, 2012:

Anyone make any sales using usfreeads?

John Coviello from New Jersey on July 07, 2011:

How many ads did you find you need to be effective on USFreeads? I currently have 24 ads, lots of views, but no sales. I guess my ads could use some improvement. Some of the ones I look at are pretty impressive.

BethanRose (author) from South Wales on July 02, 2011:

Thankyou! I shall change that now, my bad. :)

John Coviello from New Jersey on July 02, 2011:

Re: USFreeads It should be clarified that the $9.99 is a monthly charge for the Premium Membership.

BethanRose (author) from South Wales on July 01, 2011:

You can't place Clickbank affiliate links into Hubpages! I'm sure there are some affiliate networks that you're allowed, take a look at the submission guidelines. Good luck :)

Glassy from Aus on July 01, 2011:

Thanks, I think i need to look into click bank a bit more, i think.

Do you know if it's against the rules to put a Click Bank affiliate link that doesn't share revenue with Hubpages in a Hub?

BethanRose (author) from South Wales on July 01, 2011:

No that does not matter so long as you do not duplicate everything, like the whole website lol. Just the keywords that you'll need and people will search for. It's always good to add a little of your own writing in there too!

Glassy from Aus on July 01, 2011:

This is very interesting. When you say to cut and paste the information from the website you are promoting, isn't that duplicate content and it may not get recognized, or does this not matter?

BethanRose (author) from South Wales on July 01, 2011:

No problem, let me know how you get on :-)

John Coviello from New Jersey on July 01, 2011:

Thanks for making us aware of this. I will give it a try.
