Does ClickBank actually work?

Discussion in 'ClickBank' started by obenix, Feb 7, 2005.

    I was just browsing through www.clickbank.com and was wondering if any webmasters here promote their stuff and get paid?
    Sorry to say (no offense intended) but their site does not seem "professional" enough to render me signing up as their affliate...:(

    It is highly popular mainly with all kind of marketers and ebook writers. But rather expensive as well. It depends for what kind of audience are you looking for, for some stuff there might be better alternatives.

    They limit the countries they accept the people from, so I didn't have a chance to try them out.

    some people have success with clickbank, but unless you already have an existing site that leans in a direction you could only find affiliates for at clickbank, I'd try another network or means of advertising.

    I briefly looked through the products available to promote, but decided that there wasn’t anything worth my ad space.

    A few of the webmaster scripts and e-books looked interesting, but the overzealous sales pitch on the websites are the equivalent of a bitch slap. I would be embarrassed to send my audience there.

    Maybe I overlooked something. If you use them I would be interested in what your promoting and how it’s doing.

    Clickbank (in my opinion) offers better value to the merchant (ie the seller)
    than to the affiliate. Every since they started disallowing framed links
    I stopped using them.

    Yes they do pay on time but since you can only link directly to
    product links now, it is much harder to cloak affiliate links
    and anyone can insert their own username into them effectively
    bypassing you out of the loop.

    Ad to this the fact that there is no opportunity for second tier
    sales, you may want to sell some products through them but for those
    of us that build our own affiliate networks, subscribers lists,etc..
    there is no incentive to tell anyone about the affiliate program.

    In others words it is great if you have a content site and just
    want to market directly to customers but if you want own a brandable
    site (ie: your users can pass through their affiliate links) then
    you will not get the sale, and not get rewarded for your referral's sales.

    I guess it depends on what you sell. The changing of affiliate links is a problem. I would go for the niche markets where the shoppers might not even know of things like affiliate links. Avoid products on internet marketing, etc. It will also be good if there is no affiliate link on the main product page. I know of a friend who has no problems getting 300+/month commission from clickbank just from 1 product that he promotes on his main website. Personally, I have only sold 2 products so far....not enough enough to cash out.

    I have promoted Clickbank for years and they pay 2 times a month without any problem. In the last months I got the information that several products have "parasites", i.e people stealing your comissions. So you should be careful (;-)

    Yes, I promote click bank products and have been paid as an affiliate for promoting the items. The ease of promoting the items depend on the products you choose to promote and HOW you promote them. ;)

    Clickbank can work, but the customer has to be focused on the product...not on the fact that you are getting a cut

    I use clickbank and one of the best ways i use it is purching items through my own affiliate link so i effectivley get them half price i also promote the links through a directory type site i would show you but i am unsure of the rules here on posting links.

    Well... since this old thread has already been bumped I will ask some questions...

    I agree with obenix, I visited several product sites and all of them just look like crap. Do people really buy that stuff??
    And how do you pick something to promote? There are like a gazillion products and I don't see any way of sorting it out by "what's hot" or something like that. I sure don't want to promote something that no one on earth will be interested in... how do you pick a good program there?
