In our first discussion about Clickbankwe talked about how to create a product for it. Today we are going to look at the good and bad of Clickbank. Wikipedia defines Clickbank as a privately held online marketplace for digital information products. It aims to serve as a connection between digital content creators (also known as vendors) and affiliate marketers, who then promote them to consumers.
The first paragraph starts off with some of the good that Clickbank has to offer us. Let us go with the concept that you created a digital product such as an ebook. Now you can put it up for sale on Clickbank and then invite all your friends and other people to also sell the ebook. They are called affiliates and they will earn a commission for helping you to sell the ebook. Also, you might see something on Clickbank that you think would be a great product and you could be an affiliate for that product and earn a commission as well. Also, you do not have to worry about having a shopping cart on your own website Clickbank takes care of that for you along with paying the affiliates and putting your money into your own bank account. Another great thing about Clickbank, the audience base that it has and the exposure that it can give to a product.
Some of the bad things about Clickbank are to get a product approved and on Clickbank you have to pay a fee of $49.95 and there are transaction charges and dormant account fees. However, so far for me the worst thing about Clickbank is learning and following their rules. I’m not a rule breaker by nature but have broken many trying to get my products approved. It has been very confusing to put products on Clickbank. The rules are not spelled out clearly and there was much confusion for me.
That is why I wanted to do a webinar on Clickbank. Because I think Clickbank can be such a great resource for anyone who is creating content either on their blogs or doing informational products only.
