Share a simple link to my Ebooks, and make MONEY every time someone buys!

Thank you for deciding to promote my Ebook/s. Here you will find a selection of advice, tools and promotional materials to help you with your campaign. This is a great Lucid Dreaming affiliate program, and I want you to be a part of it!

For those who don’t know an affiliate program works like this: You have a UNIQUE link to my products. When you share this link with people, and they click on it and buy something, YOU get paid a commission (in this case, 70% of the sale).

To get YOUR unique link you’ll need to sign up at ‘Clickbank‘ (It’s free) and then put your unique ‘clickbank affiliate ID’ where you see XXXX in the following link:

http://XXXX.clicker98.hop.clickbank.net/

So if your clickbank ‘ID’ was ‘john88967’ your affiliate link for my lucid dreaming products would be this:

http://john88967.clicker98.hop.clickbank.net/

This is just one way to create your unique affiliate link. Or you could create your own link another way. Log into your Clickbank account, and then go to the ‘marketplace’ located at the top of the site as shown here:

lucid-dreaming-ebook-bundle-affiliate-program

Then search for ‘lucid dreaming ebook bundle’ or ‘howtolucid.com’ and look for the one from my (howtolucid.com). Then click ‘promote’. You’ll get a pop up button after that with some more options for creating your link. Like this:

create

Here you can create a tracking ID (this is optional, don’t use it if you don’t need to). This is so that you can track various links and see which ones perform the best if you’re sharing them in different places. The vast majority of affiliates won’t need to track this, as you’ll just be sharing it in loads of places at first.

Then click ‘promote’ and you’ll get your long link (don’t worry, I’ll explain how to shorten it and make it prettier later in this guide). Anyone who clicks on your link and buys something, YOU’LL get paid for. That’s the easy part. The next part is getting people to click on your link and buy it!

Best practices

The best way to promote your link is to NOT spam, and to promote it in a natural and ‘flowing’ way. When I say ‘spam’ I mean sharing it thousands of times in thousands of places. Just share it once or twice in each place you decide to share it. There are lots of great ways to share your link, but the most important thing to remember is this: The more people see your link and click on it, the more money you’ll make.

Shortening your link

If you’ve got your affiliate link you’ll notice it’s very long and doesn’t look great. This is correct and there are some things you can use to make it shorter and nicer looking. Having a shorter link also makes it easier to share and people are more likely to click a short link.

Places you could share your affiliate link

Here are some places you could share your affiliate link, but please don’t spam it or post it somewhere it’s not welcome. Make sure you’re allowed to post in these places and it’s not going to annoy people.

  • Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Forums about lucid dreaming
  • Your email list (Use Aweber if you don’t have an email list)
  • Your website (see the guide below for setting one up if you don’t have one)
  • Email it to your friends, or share it on your personal social media profiles

Promoting it on your website (If you have one)

A great idea is to share your affiliate link on your website if you have one. If you don’t have a website, it’s very easy to set one up. You can easily get started with a simple website (which you could share lucid dreaming stories and articles on) in very little time.

1: Domain name and hosting

To start a website you’ll need web hosting. Think of a ‘domain name’ for your site. This is what the site’s going to be called (this one is howtolucid.com for example). Then sign up to Bluehost and you’ll get your domain name FREE when you buy hosting there. Bluehost offer very cheap web hosting and all this is, is a place where your website files can be uploaded. It’s like a server that holds all your websites files.

2: Build your website

Add pages and content to your site. I suggest installing WordPress on your site, as it’s VERY easy to get started (this site is built with WordPress) and you can easily learn how to use it using their massive collection of help articles.

3: Add your affiliate links

Share your affiliate link in your articles naturally as if you were just talking about a friends site or product. The best conversions are when the link isn’t an OBVIOUS product link. Just mention it as if you were talking about something related that’s useful.

Banners and graphics

I’m going to be adding some high quality banners and visual graphics you can use to promote my products to this page soon, but until then please feel free to create your own using the images on my site. I don’t mind, as long as you’re promoting my products in an ethical way.

Ask me for an interview or guest post

A great way to get your audience to buy the Ebook through your link and therefore make you money is if they trust you and can see that we’re friends or at least connected. If you’d like to review the Ebook or even record a Skype/YouTube interview with me personally for your site, let me know by getting in touch. I’d be happy to do this and network/make friends in this way. I care about your success!

Don’t spam!

Just a note to say don’t spam. If you promote this in a way which goes against Clickbanks guidelines, you’ll be banned and won’t be able to promote the product. Do it the right way and we’ll both make money.. Do it the wrong way and there’s no point; you’re wasting your own time. Follow the guidelines laid out above!

Share it because you like it!

The most important thing is that you’re sharing this because you’ve hopefully tried the products yourself and believe they’ll help people. The more people you share your link with, the more people you’ll HELP lucid dream and the more money you’ll make. Your success is also my success.
