Movie sites are another thing to watch out for. The sales page promise tons of new movies and series, once you paid, you are re-directed to with old movies not worth watching. Sales pages are always full of glamour, the product, not so much.
There shouldn’t be much work on your part other than creating a simple pre-sell page (a quick intro,a few bullet points describing the major benefits of the product,a call to action). Affiliate products should be created so there isn’t a lot of work to do on the part of the affiliate (that’s if all of the hard work has already been done building a list,building a relationship with that list,etc).
Why does Clickbank take my VAT? (21% or there about?) Why do business do business with Clickbank? I encourage every one not to purchase anything from sellers that use Clickbank. Let them go bankrupt, and let their CEO’s be made homeless, robbed of all they own, eating grass.
Hi Christene, thanks so much for the review- exactly how and what do I do if I just want to be an affiliate marketer for promoting OTHER peoples products on clickbank to make an income online from home? I don’t have a website, etc.. just don’t know how to do this or what to do but Im motivated to do it and try to earn some income – pls advise thank you
If I recall correctly, I opened my first Clickbank affiliate account back in 2007, when I was still in high school. I didn’t make much money at first (for over a year in fact) but then I stumbled upon Travis Sago’s infamous bum marketing method, and went H.A.M with that. Within 3 months I was pulling $100 + USD per day which was a big amount of money for a 17 year old still at school, especially when exchange rate was factored in.
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.
But then again when there are marketers who use those tactics it gives us other marketers an opportunity to be different to stand out and stand up for truth, justice and the affiliate marketer’s way!!
One highly effective method most of them use is creating informative reviews with a slight slant that favors the products. The reader’s curiosity is piqued and they’ll click on the affiliate link to learn more. The product’s sales page will then CONVERT them into BUYERS which means $$$ for you.
1. What is the typical time before (some) money starts flowing in? I understand you cannot guarantee anything but some estimate would be relevant. I did a quick research and most articles claim that affiliate marketing takes about 9-12 months to really show results. In this age of instant gratification, that seems too long.:)
Gravity – The gravity performance statistic is an approximate, relative measure of how many affiliates have successfully promoted products from an account, with a higher number meaning more conversions. You can specify a minimum and/or a maximum gravity value.
Once you signed up, Clickbank will verify that you have a sales site, with no less than two pages of good sales copy. These two pages are a good looking sales page that encourages users to buy your product and looks professional. The other page is a thank you page that will appear after someone buys your product, thanking them for buying your product and directing them to their download link.
For any resolving any problems, Clickbank’s customer support can be contacted via phone, Mondays to Fridays, from 7:00AM – 6:00PM MST. Their support page also provides links where you can check your order status, get assistance with a download, or submit a refund request. You can also fill up an online form in order to get technical support. Finally, they also have an incredibly comprehensive Knowledgebase where you can learn all about Vendors, Affiliates, Account and more.
Clickbank is a scam. These people are dirtbags, nothing more, nothing less. I watched my balance slowly trickly from $59 to $0 over a few months. Nothing justifies stealing webmasters’ money. I will no doubt be removing their products from my site.
Thank you for your succinct article on Clickbank. I read with interest of the links you provided. They show that Clickbank has very strict terms and conditions and in no way a scam. However, I am not sure if Clickbank is cracking down on those scammy vendors. I am hopeful Clickbank will do so.
Choosing an affiliate network is one of the first decisions a new affiliate has to make. Ideally you want a network with a good range of products, decent commissions, an easy to use system and good support.
As an affiliate marketer, you can jump right in, create your unique affiliate links for thousands of products (more on that later) and start pushing traffic right away. You will also see your earnings in real time.
Facebook – Pretty much all audiences are on Facebook and you can get very cheap traffic. I recommend this method by Digital marketer or to build a big fan page, engage it and drive traffic through organic reach (case study coming soon on that one).
You need to find the right products to promote, research them… and finally struggle to write persuasive reviews that are unbiased but still slanted in favor of the product. This is hard work… and that’s why most affiliates NEVER make money with ClickBank. It takes a ton of time… and if you want to outsource, it will cost you hundreds of dollars.

While your nickname doesn’t have to be perfect (see the Don’t below), it will be visible to customers, so it’s a good idea to make it something that won’t offend anyone or make them decide not to purchase through you.
I am new to ClickBank and it looks pretty straight-forward. However, I am a bit concerned about one of the conditions to joining that I read on the site. It said that if your account becomes dormant, they can charge you each month that you do not earn money. Do you know what that is all about? I am concerned because I’d hate to not sell anything at ClickBank to earn money and then start getting charged for not selling anything.
Initial $/Sale – This number represents the average dollar value of an initial sale, not including rebills, to the affiliate who drives the sale.

Choosing the right product to promote is the first stage of being a successful affiliate marketer, and if you do it right, you can drastically improve your chances of earning a good income. But even if you get off to a good start, don’t just set up your offer page and forget all about it. Keep a close eye on your ClickBank reports, and using Tracking IDs to see what pages and products are performing the best so you know where to focus your efforts and resources.
At the end of this step, you’ll have 10 lists. Some of these lists may be empty, as it’s possible that there won’t be any keywords that meet our criteria. We’re being very careful about selecting only the ones that will work for us, so have patience and don’t get discouraged.
