Watch behind my shoulder as I teach you how to do affiliate marketing on Google Ads WITHOUT an email submit or autoresponder.
I am using ClickBank as the example network and product here, but you can use ANY product and the same idea will apply and same steps as I cover in the tutorial.
So keep on reading or watch this video:
Let’s quickly go through them step by step and see what we have to do.
We do create a landing page for several reasons.
The first is that Google just doesn’t like links in the tracking template and if you are direct linking, this is the only way to promote your products (add a link in the tracking template).
The second reason we are using a landing page is that we want to build out our audience list and our remarketing list, and this can only be achieved via a landing page.
We also include the thank you page so that we can track how many people signed up and create a remarketing/retargeting list for these people for future marketing.
Let’s look at the first step in how to do affiliate marketing on Google Ads.
Step 1: Select an affiliate product
👉 In our case, we are promoting a ClickBank product, so just head over to ClickBank to sign up.
Make sure to fill in the details correctly – ClickBank has some triggers that can put a block on your account if the information isn’t accurate.
Then just head over to the marketplace and select a product – Custom Keto Diet in our case.
Step 2: Create a landing page
Next, we have to create our landing page. You can use any page builder you like, but I use Unbounce for their dynamic text replacement capability and flexibility in editing.
I spend some time building out the landing page, but it’s generally pretty simple. Just check out my Unbounce playlist if you want more information about any specific component of building out a page, such as adding a favicon or setting up a custom domain:
For all the buttons on this page, make sure to redirect people to the ClickBank offer.
Just make sure to add the ?tid=[cmc_vid] to the end of your link so that you can see the sales on the ClickMagick end!
Step 3: Set up conversion tracking
Tracking isn’t easy for an affiliate, especially when promoting on Google Ads.
However it is absolutely necessary because ultimately, you are paying for sales, not for clicks or impressions…
I use a very specific tracking tool (ClickMagick) that allows me to track any affiliate product.
Watch the video as we go through this whole process step-by-step of setting up conversion tracking for when are ready to promote on Google, or any ad network really.
This is especially important for affiliate products since Google doesn’t integrate with most affiliate networks… so you do need to be able to have some way to track the sales so that you can optimize them.
See this complete video to learn how to track ClickBank sales using ClickMagick:
It’ll also help you understand why we add the ?tid=[cmc_vid] to the end of the affiliate link when promoting affiliate products on Google Ads.
Step 4: Promote on Google Ads
Finally, the fun part. We are now ready to create our ads and promote on Google Ads.
I don’t spend too much time going over every little detail, but I do go over everything you do need to create your campaign.
I do have a comprehensive 4-hour course that covers Google Ads in great detail, so make sure to check it out.
But you would simply click some buttons, fill in the blanks, and have your campaign up and running in no time!
And that’s how you promote affiliate products on Google Ads without an email optin!
