Can you make money on ClickBank without a website?
Do you want to promote ClickBank and make money without a website? But the real question is; can you make money on ClickBank without a website? Let’s investigate this further.
Quick fire answer of how to promote ClickBank products without a website, which includes capitalising on platforms with free traffic. These include social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. Plus on video channels like YouTube. You can make money on ClickBank without a website by first choosing a product that has a great offering. You then need to send free or paid-for traffic to that great offer from your chosen platform.
Do you need a website for ClickBank?
Before I begin, I must say that I love having websites. I love writing articles on blogs like this one. So I’d say even though you can promote ClickBank and make money without a website, keep your options open in this point.
For you to promote ClickBank products, do you need a website. Or is it possible to make money without the hassle of website building? Without having to fork out for the cost of hosting fees etc?
Let’s take a look at the ways to make money on ClickBank without a website:
Free traffic sources with the option of paid for promotional advertising:
- Make money with ClickBank on Facebook without your own website.
- How to make money on ClickBank with YouTube without your own website.
- How to make money on Instagram with ClickBank without your own website.
- Make money on ClickBank with Twitter without your own website.
Traffic sources that will require an investment:
- Make money with ClickBank on Google without your own website.
- Make money on ClickBank using email without your own website.
- Can you sell ClickBank products on eBay without your own website?
You can successfully use any of the above methods to promote ClickBank products without a website.
What does “without a website mean?”
When I say without a website, I mean without you having to build your own website. You won’t have to buy a domain name and you don’t have hosting fees. Also, you won’t have to build your own website from scratch either. But instead, what you’ll be doing to promote ClickBank without a website is to utilise other people’s websites to make money online.
Sites like YouTube (which is a website), Facebook (which is a website), Click Funnels (which is a website, but one you have more control over – see below) and of course Google (which is a website) are all freely available to use.
Each one of these websites requires a different approach to promote and make money from ClickBank affiliate products without your own website.
But I’d say not to count it out not having your own website to promote and make money with ClickBank. I have many websites (just like this one) that I’ve built myself, and I know very little about website coding.
But rest assured, even if you don’t know the small amount of coding that I know, you’d still be able to create a website like this one very easily. But to be clear, with the coding I know, which could be put on the back of a matchbox by the way, there’s no way that I could create a website like this.
All of the above methods to promote ClickBank with out your own website all work in slightly different ways. But each has traffic (i.e. people) and in some cases this is free traffic with which you can promote your affiliate commission making products to.

Social media platforms with free traffic ranked by user numbers
If you’re starting out making money online and you don’t have much money in the bank right now, getting access to a platform with free traffic is key.
Looking at the above graph, which is based on number of active users, you’ll see that at top of the graph is Facebook with 2,414,000,000 users worldwide. That’s nearly 2.5 billion users you’ll have instant access to for promoting your affiliate products you find on ClickBank. Plus it’s FREE to access!
Second in line in user ranks is YouTube with two billion users worldwide, with Instagram and Twitter further down the list. Instagram has one billion users, and right at the bottom of this graph you’ll see Twitter with 330 million users. YouTube, Instagram and Twitter are also free to join and provide you access loads of free traffic.

How to decide on which platform to promote your ClickBank products without a website
The choice of which one of the above free-traffic options is ultimately down to you. But I suggest you use whichever of the platforms you’ve had prior experience with before.
For example, if you already have a Facebook account and you are familiar with how to use and work with Facebook, choose this one to start with. Or perhaps you are a fan of Instagram or even Twitter, choose these instead. But if you have experience with more than one of these social media platforms, choose the one you feel most comfortable with.
However, if you’ve not used any of the above platforms before, and you’ve not had any online social media exposure, then I’d suggest you use either Facebook, Instagram or YouTube initially. The amount of free traffic to each of these social media sites is huge. Plus they are all free to join.
There are many successful people making money online with both Facebook and Instagram. However, if you feel that Twitter is more your thing, go for this. But what works really well for generating free traffic without your own website is YouTube. YouTube is owned by Google with huge amounts of free traffic to capitalise on right from the get-go.
But in addition to my recommendation of using Facebook, Instagram or YouTube, I also recommend you get yourself some training. Especially if you completely new to online marketing.

An early investment in training will accelerate how quickly you begin making money online. Doing a course with the ClickBank University could even save you money by helping you to avoid costly mistakes at the outset.
But let’s look at each platform listed above in a little bit more detail and how this may work for your new online business making money with affiliate products from ClickBank.
How to promote ClickBank products without a website
Earlier in this article I listed seven platforms where you can promote ClickBank products without your own website. Four of these with free traffic and three you’ll need to make an investment. Let’s now take a closer look at each one.
1. Make money with ClickBank on Facebook without your own website
With Facebook as the number one social media platform by user rankings, this could be the platform to begin your online business making money with ClickBank.
Facebook is free to use and it’s likely you already have your own Facebook account and profile. If you do, this is a bonus, as it makes the platform more familiar to you, which could help you when getting started on your ClickBank money making journey.
However, to promote ClickBank products on Facebook, you are best advised to set up a separate business Facebook Page for your online business. This is free to do and will be linked to your existing account and profile. This is very easy to set up and to have it working like your very own website, but without the cost of buying your own domain name, hosting fees and website building.
You’ll then need to post articles, video content, images and other things that will generally be of interest to your target niche. However, this will take time to build up an audience doing it organically (i.e. without using Facebook paid for traffic). You will need to be patient and consistent with your posting.
The alternative is to create Facebook ads. When Facebook ads are done correctly, they will convert well. However, if you don’t have a lot of money to begin with, this may be more challenging for you. But also, before you begin to run Facebook ads, make sure to read Facebook ads policies first. Ignore these at your peril, as Facebook can and will shut your account down if you violate their rules.
But YouTube might be a better option to begin your Click#bank affiliate marketing journey, as YouTube works more by putting the right content with a video using keywords.
2. How to make money on ClickBank with YouTube without your own website
The catch with YouTube is that you need video content. To get video content, you either need to create videos yourself or have someone else create the videos for you.
The are many ways to create videos for YouTube, like using online video creation tools like Animoto. Animoto is easy to use and you don’t have to be in front of the camera yourself if you don’t want to. You can use images and voice overs instead.
You can also buy videos from video creators on places like Fiverr. For example, if you decide to go into the health and fitness niche (see below), you can quite easily buy fitness videos from fiverr. An example of this tpye of offer can be found by searching “fitness videos on Fiverr“. Click this link and you’ll see an example of 2,000 fitness videos for sale for under $10.
Create videos on your computer or phone
If you are happy to create your own videos from your computer or on your phone, this will work too. But you may need some video editing software to create good video content for YouTube. Although having said that, many online marketers simply use their mobile phone for this.
Your YouTube videos will then be searchable both on YouTube itself and on the search engines like Google searches. This means you need to get the right keywords in your headings and within the description of your video, so that it can be found by people looking for the message of your video.
But then within the ‘more detail‘ below your YouTube video, this is where you put your affiliate links.
3. How to make money on Instagram with ClickBank without your own website
Instagram has over one billion users world-wide and is a great free platform to promote your ClickBank affiliate products. And by the way if you didn’t already know this, Instagram is owned by Facebook. Instagram is free to join and has tons of free traffic to benefit your ClickBank affiliate marketing business.
Instagram is very much image focused and it’s all about the pictures people post on this social media platform.
Also, in the same way as Facebook has ads, you can pay for adverts on Instagram too.
4. Make money on ClickBank with Twitter without your own website
Twitter is the small-fry when it comes to online users. There are around 330 million users world-wide. However, if this is used correctly you can make a ton of money using Twitter.
In fact one of the great online course I attended is one run by Paul O’Mahony who made his first money on Twitter. He teaches how to make money online and one of his teachings is how to capitalise on Twitter and make loads of money affiliate marketing.
Learn how to make money on Twitter from Paul O’Mahony
Paul O’Mahony began to make more money from Twitter in the early days than the owner of Twitter was making! This amazing online Business Mastery Affiliate Program is well worth the money.
If you’ve not done any online training courses, I recommend you attend his workshop. But even if you have already done courses, I still recommend you take Paul’s course too.
Twitter is free to use and has loads of free traffic to benefit from. But like Facebook and Instagram, in order to benefit from this free traffic you need to put in some hard work. You need to be consistent and persevere.
However, just like the other social media channels already mentioned, you can also use their paid-for adverts.
One of the best tips I got from going on Paul O’Mahony’s course was learning about what he calls the ‘Biggest Button on the Internet’. It would be wrong of me to disclose this secret and if you want to find out more, I’m afraid you’re going to have to attend his course.

It’s not just about platforms with free traffic
If you’re serious about making money from affiliate marketing and you’re happy to put some investment into your online business, then consider these options too. These are traffic sources that I list at the beginning of this article that will require an investment from you.
But like the social media channels already explained, they don’t require you to have your own website. Asa reminder, these were:
- Make money with ClickBank on Google without your own website.
- Make money on ClickBank using email without your own website.
- Can you sell ClickBank products on eBay without your own website?
Let’s take a look:
1. Make money with ClickBank on Google without your own website
It is possible to make money from Google without your own website, but to do this you will need to spend some money.
The first alternative is to buy adverts with Google Pay Per Click. To make money with ClickBank in this way, you’ll need to buy adverts from Google and direct them straight to your affiliate’s website using an affiliate link.
However, this may not work and could become quite costly to begin your online journey. So I wouldn’t recommend this route to begin with.
The best way to start making money from Google is to take advantage of the free traffic. What I mean by this is to optimise your own website for search terms and build a blog in your chosen niche.
However, this will require you to learn how to build a website after buying your own domain name and pay for hosting fees. This method of promoting ClickBank products also means you will need to generate your own content. That means you’re going to have to write articles.
This is all very doable and can be learned, however, if you don’t feel inclined to create your own website at this stage, I’d count this option out.
2. Make money on ClickBank using an email list without your own website
Email works well, but in order for it work you first need a database or a list of people to email to.
So just how do you an email build a list?
One of the easiest ways to build an email list is to do this from your own website, but if you don’t feel inclined to do this yet, what are your options.
You could sign up to Click Funnels to build a landing page, which is easy to do and they have many templates to choose from. Then sign up to an autoresponder like Aweber which is software that manages subscribers and allows you to automate your emails.
After this there are many ways to get subscribers to your email list. These include using all of the social media sites listed above like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. But you could also but traffic too, but this can get quite expensive if you don’t have much money to begin.
The benefit of creating an email list
If you send people directly to your affiliate offer, as described in all of the above options, whether the person buys or not you have lost them as a potential future customer of yours.
This reason for this is that one this customer hits that affiliate landing page, you’re unlikely to see them again. If they decide not to buy, that’s it they’re gone. You may have paid for that lead and that money would be wasted.
However, if on the other hand you have an email list, which you build by creating a landing page first, these customers will sign up to your list before they are directed to the affiliate link. You collect their email address and start to build a relationship with them.
3. Can you sell ClickBank products on eBay without your own website
Finally what about using eBay to make money from ClickBank products? This is possible, but probably the best way to do this is to go to elance.com and commission a writer to write a 50 page mini-ebook on a topic in your niche. For example, “How to make money on ebay” or on “dog training” etc.
Then include at the end of the book a list of recommended products you are affiliated to or also throughout the ebook. You should be able to sell a good ebook for say $2-5 on eBay and then they some will click on your affiliate links for you to make commissions.
Better still, in order to deliver the product, provide them with a website address for them to download your product. This requires them to register their email address and voila, you begin to guild an email list. It is from this email list you can build a future relationship and sell to them other affiliate offers.
Key factors to make money online with ClickBank
Now that I’ve explained how to learn to promote ClickBank products without a websit, there are two principle steps to make money from ClickBank:
Step 1 – Find a great product offering on ClickBank
The first factor in making money with ClickBank is to choose a great offer. ClickBank is packed with affiliate products, which can make it difficult to choose, but let’s review some quick and easy steps of how to choose a wining niche product.
The best evergreen niches that consistently make money with ClickBank
Choosing your niche in the first place can be a bit daunting, but if you narrow your search down to these three key topics, you cut out some of the ‘noise’.
- Health and fitness.
- Wealth and finance.
If you stick to the above three top earning niches, you can’t really go wrong. The key thing about each of these top niches is they are evergreen. This means that they are always popular and will always sell online. But most important, once you’ve chosen your niche, stick with it.
Don’t start up three separate niche campaigns. Instead cut your teeth on say Wealth and finance, and then when this is making you money, only then consider adding a second niche to your portfolio.
How to choose ClickBank affiliate products within your chosen niche
Once you chosen your niche from the above three, it’s time to search ClickBank for a product with a great offer. It’s extremely easy to sign up and you can do this by clicking this link: Set up my ClickBank Account Now.
Once you’ve signed up to ClickBank, you’ll enter your dashboard, which will look similar to the above image Fig 1. On image Fig 1. you’ll see in the top menu the ‘Market Place‘ boxed in red. To find your affiliate product click here.
ClickBank market place niche search
This will take you to the market place, which is where all the affiliate products are to be found. If you scroll down the page, you’ll see a large red menu on the left side, as per image Fig 2 above. In this image, I have highlighted the ‘Business/Investing‘ and ‘Health & Fitness‘ niche headings with a green outline box.
Click your chosen niche, which will expand down, allowing you to select one of the sub-headings in that niche.
Choosing your affiliate product
There are a few things to consider when choosing your affiliate product from ClickBank. My best tip is once you’ve chosen your niche, sort the products in order of “Gravity”. The term gravity refers to how many affiliate marketers are making money from promoting this product.
The other way to search for affiliate products to to search on products that have recurring commissions. If your referral signs up for the longer term, then you’ll receive affiliate commission every month from the one sale. This can quickly add up over time to a sizable monthly income, on top of the daily sales from new referrals also.
Step 2 – decide on how to promote your affiliate product and take action
Once you’ve chosen your niche and some products in that niche from ClickBank, you need to begin promoting them. Go back over the ideas in this article and decide which of the methods I’ve explained.
The important this to take away from this article is not necessarily which method you choose, but to take action now, not next week or next month, but now.
I’d also recommend you get yourself some training. By getting the right training, yes you’ll pay out some money first, but see this as an investment, an investment in you. You’ll get to earning affiliate commission much faster than you would without the training.
