My Honest Review Of The Clickbank Marketplace From A 6 Year Affiliate Updated For 2012 Please Read!
I first started learning affiliate marketing back in 2006, and Clickbank was the first affiliate program I signed up for to find products to promote in exchange for a commission.In fact my first affiliate sale was a Clickbank product back in late 2006 since then I have had many, many, more.
I personally know Clickbank very well since I have used them in my affiliate marketing campaigns since 2006. It works like this: Find a high quality product to promote, grab your affiliate link for that particular product, and start promoting it with your blog if you have one, through social networking sites, article marketing, classifieds, forums, ppc, press releases, seo, as well as many more internet marketing tactics to get your product in front of the right people so you can successfully sell them.
With that being said! This is going to be an honest Clickbank review about what I like about the Clickbank marketplace? And what I do not like about Clickbank? As well as some other facts about Clickbank you may have not been aware of, so keep reading……
Clickbank is one of the most established, well known, and largest affiliate networks around. Clickbank has been the first choice for product creators, and affiliates since 1997.
Clickbank has paid out over 2 Billion dollars to it’s affiliates worldwide since then.
Clickbank has books written about it, and has been discussed on major tv networks, and talk shows. ( Very profitable, reliable company )
The Clickbank marketplace has between 10,000 – 20,000 affiliate products in different categories for you to choose from to promote and make some money on the side from home. Products are sorted by category, and the highest gravity products in a particular category are ranked on the first pages. Clickbank tip: The higher the gravity of a particular product means how many different affiliates for that particular product have successfully referred a sale.

Clickbank pays out bi-weekly as well as direct deposit to your bank account so you can choose on how you want to be paid as long as you successfully refer a sale.
What I Personally Like And Dislike About The Clickbank Marketplace?
Payments: You are paid in one of two ways which is your choosing. Note: Clickbank is free to sign up for if you were wondering if you have to pay any money to join the answer is no. It is completely free to join.
- You can be paid bi – weekly sent directly to your mailbox as long as you successfully refer a sale.
- You can be paid by direct deposit directly into your bank account weekly once you receive your first affiliate commission check. You can change your payment option to direct deposit after your first check is sent out to you in the mail. ( I use this option )
60 Day Return Policy – Clickbank offers a 60 day return policy on all it’s products inside it’s marketplace, which is to generous in my opinion. Good for the buyer of the product because they are protected, but it can be bad for the affiliate promoting the product because some people take advantage of Clickbanks generous return policy. If you are trying to promote a product in the ebusiness – emarketing category better known as the internet marketing – make money online niche your refunds could be high due to internet marketers taking advantage of this policy and trying to get products for free basically. Sometimes the product is low quality, and it would constitute a refund. But most of the time it is just marketers taking advantage of the system and trying to get something for free.
My advice to Clickbank newbies: If your going to be promoting products in this niche, make sure you do your homework by buying the product if possible, or checking out various reviews on the product to find out if the majority of the buyers of this product are happy with their purchase. This will keep your refunds to a minimum. I would stay out of the ebusiness – emarketing category all together if you can help it. Here is a good product I bought that has low refunds that you can check out by clicking here
Reason why? Your refunds will be a lot lower because you will not be dealing with other internet marketers who try to take advantage of Clickbanks generous return policy.
Vendors – Clickbank can be a goldmine if you have your own product that you want to submit to the Clickbank marketplace. There are tens of thousands of affiliates browsing the Clickbank marketplace looking for their next product to promote, and make some money with. Benefits to you: You will not have any trouble finding affiliates to promote your product, if you get the word out the affiliates will come like an army promoting your product, and making you money on autopilot. ( A mutually beneficial relationship for both vendors and affiliates ) .
Digital products – Clickbank sells only digital products inside their marketplace. Digital products are information products, which the Internet is based off of, which is good. They can be ebooks, software downloads, video tutorials, or services, such as memberships etc… Digital products offer a high affiliate payout anywhere from 50% to 75% based on the product, so you can make some good money if you learn how to promote, and sell them correctly online.
***** Digital products are also instantly delivered after a customer makes his or hers payment, so there is no waiting to get your product after you buy it, which is cool *****
