Is Clickbank Still Converting These Days?

The question that seems to keep coming up lately is "Can affiliate's make money with ClickBank these days?" Well...ClickBank claims to be the largest digital product retailer on the internet. They also claim they are the most trusted marketplace on the web and the affiliates number one choice. When I read the opinions of some affiliate marketers the words sustainable income seems to be affiliated with ClickBank reviews. Read on to find out if affiliates can make money with ClickBank.

Is ClickBank Still The Best Market Place To Make Money Online?

ClickBank was the first online marketplace for affiliates to make money using products of vendors. Being the first in the industry with new ideas usually keeps your place in line as number one. This does not mean that to be number one ClickBank like any other company is not without challenges. Before we get to these let's start at the beginning shall we?

How To Use The ClickBank Marketplace

Affiliates find the product they want to promote by browsing through the product categories and sub-categories or search by using certain keywords. ClickBank offers at least 23 categories of products and some sub-categories underneath those. If you are new to affiliate marketing or to the marketplace you might want to start with basic or general products.

Next, once you find the product you simply add your affiliate id, put the affiliate link on your website and the product is ready to be clicked and a sale made. ClickBank does have a user-friendly set-up to help you get started making money online. The CB Marketplace offers you guides to help you to decide which products are the best to promote.

There are guides and several other tools to teach you how to read the sales statistics of each product so that you know if you want to promote a certain item or program. You can also learn to filter your search results based on performance of a product. In other words, you will know what to sort by, how to narrow your search and as far as advanced search's go the ClickBank guides will help you to know which items are the recurring income items.

ClickBank Challenges

Under ClickBank's frequent asked questions (faq), one of the questions found there is this: If I send a visitor to a vendor's site with my Hop-Link, but they buy items from a different vendor will I still receive the commission? The answer for this question is "No". Well... this could be a bummer we could look at this as a flaw or a cookie issue in the CB Marketplace system.

As for the products and programs to choose from at the marketplace, ClickBank does make the vendor sign a contract or agreement that the items are of good value to the buyer. It also states in the contract that upon receiving a complaint against a product by the customer that CB will contact the vendor and insist that the vendor takes care of it. This is important because it determines how many customers ask for refunds.

Making Money with ClickBank

You can make money with any legitimate program as long as you know how to work it. Like I always say "Research, research and more research" along with the right information will help you learn how to make a sustainable income at ClickBank. It may help to read the affiliate guides, affiliate basics and the affiliate resources that are found under Help Center and the Affiliate Help Index. Also, the CB Insider News Release announces that ClickBank will have an "Enhanced Premium Program for the year 2012.

There are several programs and markets on the great wide web and it does not hurt to check them out and when you find one or two you like it may help you to not put all of your eggs in any one basket. Never depend on one money source. That way if something goes wrong you don't lose all your eggs. Just try to investigate programs thoroughly to know if they are tools that will help or hamper your goals to make money online.
