As a vendor I would recommend doing LOTS of research and find out what people need and what they are willing to pay for. If you can solve a problem that many have an create a product that people will buy to resolve their problem you will have sales.
Well, as I said in the beginning of the post I have bought Clickbank Products and many out of Clickbank. Yet no matter where I am buying from I’ll go through all the steps to prevent possible scams. Clickbank is the trusted and established marketplace like any other on the web.
When I was looking for a program I could join I wanted to assure that they, the program people trying to sell their way of making money, were in the cllckbank category! When I had a problem with such I could explain the problem to CLICKBANK and the money would be in my account usually within 3 days if it was not in perhaps an hour. I agree with what DOE has put forward.
Date Added to Marketplace – The date on which the account was added to the ClickBank marketplace. You can specify a beginning and/or end date. The beginning date cannot be earlier than 120 days ago, and the end date cannot be later than today.
Vendors know the importance of marketing tools. They provide their affiliates with the marketing materials that include the sales letters, banners, and in some cases even the email marketing campaign letters.

Great article! I agree with your opinion 100%. I hear way too many people using scam instead of dissatisfied. If they bought something from a store off-line and they were dissatisfied that’s what they would say. If you order a meal from a restaurant and it wasn’t exactly the way you liked it you would not say you just got scammed.
Now before you can finish you need to figure out how much you are going to pay your affiliates in commissions for each sale. You can set the commission percentage or dollar amount any way you see fit, but remember if you are too cheap with your commissions nobody will promote your product. The other side of that coin is that you don’t want to give away the farm to affiliates either, you need to make money on your product as well. When people have asked me how to increase sell on ClickBank in the past I advised them to use a commission rate around 50-75% for each sale.

Finding someone’s real opinion becomes even more difficult. By the way, the same thing goes for the word “scam” being added on to the end of a product name. I’m sure if you check, there are plenty of review sites ending in that little four letter word. I was looking at Google and noticed that Clickbank Scam was pretty heavily researched.
One of the most common questions I see asked about Clickbank is whether or not it is a “legit” platform. On that basis, I’ve decided to address it early on in my review. What is most interesting is that this question gets asked both by customers looking to purchase products through CB’s payment gateway, as well as affiliates wondering whether or not they are going to get duped with stolen commissions or missed payments.
An example of this would be www.examplesite.com/?hop=yournickname. Instead, you must use the HopLink format ending in hop.clickbank.net so the Hop can be tracked correctly, ensuring you receive affiliate credit on the sale.

Beforehand we get to know the product, test it ourselves, find practical uses for it and give real life field tested info when we promote it and match the content with popular keywords. How fast it depends really, from 2-3 days to 2-3 months depending on the product, content and resources available.
Hello Christene, nice article! I am trying to market my designs for Christian apparel and clickbank doesn’t look like a good place after reading your review. www.jesuscheer.com is the website I’m working on. I’m trying to find a better way with minimal luck. All of these “fulfillment” places are nice in the fact that they make, ship, etc. ..the prices are just too much for me as I am only trying to sell the designs to fund a ministry to help the needy and the fulfillment places are just beyond what I want to do. I want to spread the good news and it’s kinda hard to do that when a t-shirt has a price tag of over 20 bucks! IDK, been racking my brain for a long time trying to find a way…
My situation is I’m a Professor and Program Director for a Community College teaching massage therapy, a very in-demand field yet my college does little marketing. It’s my job to recruit students. I have a Facebook page and Twitter, and about 100+ followers on each. Can you see this type of system with funnels etc. working to help recruit potential students? If so, how? I feel like building content and creating opt ins should help, as we too are offering a “product”. Thanks for your time!
ClickBank is not a scam and can be a good place to make some money. However before selecting a product to promote make sure you do your research and if possible try the product yourself. There are many low quality products available, particularly in the E-business & E-marketing category with a selection of get rich quick schemes that are clearly scams.
And what type of prep do you beforehand? Do you guys do a ton of keyword research, determine your USP, figure out all the content you’re going to post and when? HOw fast do you uusally get these up and running?
That’s why keep using them. Their money is so expensive compared to PayPal and others but what they do they do well and it saves huge amounts of time. I do feel they are working on clearing out the hype boys.
Yes, I absolutely agree with you. I cannot remember how many times I fell into that trap with Clickbank. Purchased a trial and end up paying the full amount. Getting a re-fund use to be easy, but now it is just a headache not worth the effort.
Christene, I think it’s also very important for affiliates who promote Clickbank products to know that Clickbank can simply decide to SUSPEND their affiliate account and keep their commission without informing them. They treat their affiliates like garbage, giving only canned responses. You simply don’t get paid. So, not only do they not want you if you’re not successful, but also if you are successful. Once you have enough money in their allowance, they simply close your account and keep the money for themselves. I have found that communicating with them is impossible as they they know everything and their way is always right.
Clinkbank University promised to refund my money if I was not satisfied with the program. THEY LIED! Not only did they refused to refund my money, they made an unauthorized payment on my credit card. Clinkbank bank misrepresented their product. They took money under false pretenses, which now becomes criminal! To me it is a form of internet fraud. I will be seeking both CIVIL AND CRIMINAL action against them.
Clickbank offers a real support free charge of services to its customers in 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week and 365 days in a year. The support team is available to assist you for affiliate support and vendor support.
1 – Time is irrelevant. It’s like asking “How long does it take to go 100 miles?” Well it depends on the speed at which you travel. Same here, Potentially you could set all of this up in 1 day and run Facebook ads to your content and make your first sale tonight. Realistically it will take you a few weeks to fine tune everything and make money.
Just one more thing: in your post you mention that you roll over some of your opt-ins into another 3 email sequence. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but does this mean that you’re pitching people an average of 3 times for every 10 emails you send out?
Wish you had read all these reviews before buying an Ebook via Clickbank. You buy what you want, give them your details, then they offer you another book at a discounted rate, you can’t proceed without buying the extra book. The link they sent wouldn’t work and my pc virus scanner wouldn’t open up the site saying it was a phishing website, after contacting both the seller and the bank, neither one would respond. Just automated ticket numbers. One after another after another. Live chat wouldn’t work either. Total scammers. Do not use.
Secondly, the online behavior of those who push this or that product is no different than the politicians who we have to listen to everyday. They create the dirt on the Internet, so much so that it is only making it tougher for those of us who would really like to do this ethically. Thankfully there are people like you who help keep the dream in front of us.
