Yet there is no guarantee you’ll make money with it. Despite the fact the fake Forex trading software promises that you can dump money using Forex trading software and automate the system. It tells you the software will handle all the work from taking a decision to trading signals preciously.
You need to make sure you properly research products, before you promote any and be weary of reviews too, because plenty of people will give very positive reviews to scams – so long as it’s making them money!
people who visited the site but did not opt in > you can use negative audiences for your ads with facebook ads, you just take visitors to the site and substract the people that visited the thank you page. For people who did not purchase, you simply can’t with affiliate marketing unless the vendor adds a conversion pixel of yours on their thank you page.
Hey Arthur, glad you like the site! I don’t think bloggers would be against giving free stuff instead of asking money for it. Squeeze pages work fine. But I’d still recommend you build your own site and own platform, its just better in the long run. The way you do it is you create a free post (like this one) with free downloads inside then drive traffic to it. Everyone is happy to link to free info then you can retarget people without too much trouble.
Hi Charlie, Like you mentioned I do not believe that Clickbank is a scam. They deliver on the spot and that means products and refunds. It are the vendors that take advantage of a good working system. The problem with IM Products is that you do not know what you are buying. The only thing you get to see is an endless show off of fake bankaccounts even if they do it in so called real time. The product itself remains hidden. Therefore, I buy the product to find out what it is about and to request almost an immediate refund. I still regret that I did not do this with a lot of other products I bought but that is life. A learning process. Different is the Warrior Forum. They show the product, even with a refund policy, which must be very low to my opinion. At least you know, what you are buying, that is most of the time. A few of them are to much in the hype of their ‘Clickbank products promoting’ and hide their actual products which is a shame really.
Hi Charlie I think it was great of you to write this article. You are so right it is not click bank per say but it surely is alot of vendors. I am a newbie and I seen and heard so much crap I lost faith on who you could trust and or believe. So now I just try to find free information to help with things I need to know.(Not always easy)lol. I have always opened your emails and do trust what you have to say because you have NEVER tried to push any crap in my mail box, so thank you again for thiis article, and maybe when click bank is done cleaning house things will get better for everyone out there.
Avg $/sale: For one-time purchases, this number is the same as Initial $/sale. If the vendor offers recurring billing products, it equals the average total of the initial sale plus all rebills, divided by the number of initial sales. To put it simply, for every new purchase of this product, this amount is the average you’d make in total over the life of a new customer. However, this is just an average; this amount is not guaranteed.
I have developed what I think is a pretty cool 11-part auto responder series that solves a critical problem people have in my niche – it includes a number of affiliate links as well (although not clickbank – yet). I currently have a squeeze page set up which I’m driving traffic to through using FB ads, but I’m finding that I’m having to pay way too much for every conversion ( > $1.50 per conversion).
So when people refer to Clickbank scams they are really talking about products that seem good from all their promotional material, testimonials, sales pages etc … but which are total crap. This is usually reinforced by loads of reviews that extol the virtues of the product, and put it up there with the Second Coming in terms of greatness. All the “external” factors lead you to believe you are going to be buying something great, but instead you wind up with a polished turd!
this site is absolute scam dont ever expect your getting your refund after purchased all Biased ” ClickBank.com ” an absolute scam no refunds guaranteed so be careful when they say you can get a refund, dont ever mess with these people.
The main issue *I* have seen is with Clickbank itself (not the educational university program): Many offers that are in Clickbank’s list of affiliates can be considered ‘scams’: They are either outdated, old, a real scam, misleading etc. Clickbank does little to get rid of the ‘foul players’.
I think it isn’t necessarily fair to say one is better than the other, because Amazon and Clickbank are completely different programs. There are reasons and advantages to use Amazon, as well as Clickbank, but it really just depends on your business model. Not all niches are compatible with Clickbank, and the same could be said for Amazon.
Got my ClickBank account banned. Contacted abuse department that what they said: “This account has been terminated due to a terms of service violation. For security reasons, we are unable to release any further details concerning the termination.” Didn’t do anything, didn’t bought traffic, clicked on my ad only 1 time to check. And blocked my account with no explanation, didn’t even notified me. Had to contact support to know that I’m banned.
Keep in mind the company has been running since 1998, so they have established a very popular reputation within the online marketing industry and have gained the trust of thousands of sellers and affiliates. However in more recent years, Clickbank has taken a slight turn for the worse.
I have the feeling that I have all the right content on the squeeze page. I’m describing the value of the offer, creating urgency that it will only be free for a limited time and is normally valed at $XXX.XX, have a countdown timer to signal when the offer expires, but I’m still paying a lot per conversion.
Believe or not there is a program right now that people are killing it with because it is automated and the system works. It has the lowest refund rate on clickbank and it has been around for a long time and recently was updated .
I suppose that does require a very good segmentation strategy that allows you to keep track of where your subscribers opted in in the first place, so that you can target specific solutions that are related to that problem that prompted them to join your list.
