It is true that the key to becoming a successful ClickBank affiliate is to drive more buyer traffic to Clickbank links / landing pages, and make more sales in the process.

While you can post as much content as you want, posting at least once a week should be enough to keep your website active.
Write & Publish Product Guides
Unless you are only selling eBooks, you can definitely write tutorials that instruct potential buyers on how they can use the product(s) you are selling. Even if you are selling a dietary supplement that is supposed to be used alongside diet and exercise, you can write guides related to diet plans and exercise regimes. Even if people have no intention of buying your product(s) initially, reading your guide(s) could convince them to visit your ClickBank affiliate landing page/link and make a purchase.

Genuine testimonials will help educate potential buyers about the benefits of the product(s) you are selling, which will make it more likely that they will click your affiliate link. Of course, you can always make up a fake tutorial, but the problem is that modern day shoppers can tell if a testimonial is real or made up.

This is why it is ideal to use an email list to promote your ClickBank landing page/link. A mailing list can also be used for a myriad of other reasons, such as enrolling customers, Facebook growth, further promotions, etc.
