ClickBank For Promoting

KewlKat007 Does anyone have any experience in using ClickBank?

I have already purchased the Activ eBook software.  I also plan on eventually purchasing Gold Panner's Hyprlock to help protect against people buying my ebook, requesting a refund, then having full access to it.

My interest in ClickBank is in the alleged abilities to promote an ebook via it's affiliate system.  Does their system work well in promoting ebooks?  I don't plan on allowing any rebranding and so forth.  My goal is to start my own online publishing business.

I enjoy researching a lot and have plans of publishing ebooks on various topics.  Mainly related to technology and business opportunities (the truth about them, not the reseller junk they have floating around).  I will be publishing the ebooks myself and there are a couple I am thinking of physically publishing if they do well.  I will probably publish them via a POD service such as Lulu.

Please post any experiences you have had, good or bad, with ClickBank.

EBookCompiler Hi there

We've been using ClickBank since 1999, have 3 accounts, and are very happy with them.  In all this time we've had a handful of minor glitches/issues, but they have all been resolved

KewlKat007 That testimony sounds promising.  It's my hopes of using their large affiliate system to help in selling my ebook once it's written.  In addition, it seems nice that ClickBank takes care of disbursements to affiliates so I don't have to worry about that.

EbooksRus nothing wrong with clickbank they always pay on time and never late there is only 1 thing i dont like with clickbank refunds i think the refunds should be payed back by the product owner and not the affiliate

jbsmith Sure, Clickbank is a very viable option - we have a few books listed on CB.  The trick is to promote like crazy and recruit the first few affiliates proactively - once they begin making sales you begin to rate in both Popularity and Gravity, the latter being a rating of how many sales across a variety of partners you are making  - not just how many sales overall.

Strong affiliates watch these reports regularly and look for "trending" products - if they see your product trending they will pick it up and promote it more heavily.

But first, you need to get the ball rolling.  Sometimes this happens by being listed on the Marketplace itself, but often it takes some extra proactive work.
