Clicksure and Clickbank are in style affiliate networks the place folks come to place up their digital merchandise and have folks promote them. However which is best?
As a professional affiliate marketer who has made $100,000’s from this enterprise, the reply is Clickbank (CB), however earlier than you exit the web page and head over to CB’s official website, there’s extra to this story that you simply NEED to learn, as a result of regardless of CB being the higher community for a large number of causes, you must NOT neglect Clicksure (CS) and moreover, I’m going to indicate you a even higher community than these 2 value making an attempt out.
It’s not nearly which community is best, it’s additionally about if you know the way to earn money from it. And likewise, when you want extra information on me, right here you go.
Let expertise and outcomes with every community:
Let’s begin with Clickbank…
I joined this community someplace between 2005-2006. The experiences I had with it had been fairly extraordinary to say the least (not at first although)…
I grossed a number of $100,000’s in gross sales for this place and landed on their prime vendor checklist on 2 separate events (full story right here). However this wasn’t precisely because of CB itself…
Sure they supplied me with a very good alternative and merchandise to promote, however it was due to my advertising and marketing coaching in a program referred to as Rich Affiliate (which would be the third community I’ll advocate to you shortly) that I managed to make the most of the correct concepts to advertise the merchandise from there.
Irrespective of how good a community is or the presents it gives, with out advertising and marketing, there’s no level in getting concerned with this. CB does have it’s personal coaching program referred to as Clickbank College to assist folks out with this, however to be sincere, having been on the within of that program, I nonetheless keep on with Rich Affiliate to show and present me easy methods to promote stuff on-line.
Anyway, listed below are the primary issues to take from CB:
-It’s an amazing program for entrepreneurs to be concerned with, on nearly any stage.
-Signing up with them is free and their assist is nice for each clients, promoters and distributors.
-Not each product that goes up on that place is nice although, I’ve encountered just a few scams and a bunch of low high quality merchandise too, and this is actually because a variety of distributors, wish to milk of the recognition of CB and put their merchandise up there. Fortunately CB itself does a reasonably respectable job of weeding these folks and their applications/merchandise out, however it’s usually not at a fast sufficient pace.
-This community continues to develop with extra associates and distributors coming into it. I nonetheless actively promote at the least 1 product on this community (here's a case examine).
-They provide fairly superior compensation providers for all events and nice refund insurance policies for purchasers.
Let’s transfer on to Clicksure…
I’ve reviewed CS earlier than (right here it's). And I can't truthfully say the identical good issues about it as I can about CB. Why? Properly as a result of this place doesn’t precisely have the identical requirements or repute CB does.
As I grew to become a an increasing number of skilled at advertising and marketing, one of many issues I started doing was trying across the web for merchandise and applications to evaluation and promote.
In my expertise, the VAST variety of dangerous applications I discovered had been sadly tied to the CS program. The opposite great amount of occasions, they had been tied to Clickbetter, the same program.
Level being, as a result of I had discovered so many low high quality applications related to this community, to this present day, I've by no means promoted any of them.
You might ask then, how can I justify reviewing this place as an affiliate? Properly 1 easy reply I've for this:
Fairly often CS applications get marketed across the web and appeal to lots of people to them. I take advantage of this chance to speak about these merchandise and let folks know if it’s a very good funding or not. Usually, as a result of they aren’t, I like to recommend one thing that's higher, it's type of an act of shopper safety (and I received’t lie, a method for me to make further gross sales).
Listed below are the primary issues to take from Clicksure:
Are there good merchandise there? Positive. The issue is that they’re laborious to search out although.
The largest drawback with CS is that they simply don’t do a very good job of vetting their distributors or associates for that matter, and thus, this attracts too many dangerous apples, that they offer the entire community the dangerous identify.
Reality be advised, with the various merchandise I’ve bought from this place (to evaluation and take a look at), every time I wanted to get a refund, CS all the time supplied it with out query, so they're respectable themselves.
Do I like to recommend selling CS merchandise as an affiliate? If you will discover it positive.
The issue is that many associates don’t have the identical requirements I do, they merely search for any alternative to market something, so long as the fee is nice and I don’t like that personally.
A 3rd community to contemplate…
This third community is particularly for associates who market something inside the earn money on-line area of interest and it occurs to be the I recommended earlier.
What do earn money on-line applications in each CS and CB do? They educate folks how to do this, however the issue is, they usually educate unrealistic methods to get it accomplished, so the buyer finally ends up getting screwed (even when they don’t comprehend it).
Nonetheless, WA has a much better success fee for it’s members in that regard and since it gives overwhelmingly MORE advantages to the buyer, it's a far simpler/higher deal to the buyer and due to this fact a greater provide for associates to advertise.
Not solely that, however…
The factor is, each CB and CS present A LOT of alternatives to advertise earn money on-line applications, however the issue is, these presents are typically common or sub par. However you may nonetheless use the merchandise recognition to advertise one thing higher to customers, aka, a program like WA.
I've made this argument for applications like JVZoo as effectively by the best way, as a result of in some ways, it’s merchandise on that community are additionally much like those I discover on CS.
In the long run, your success as an affiliate marketer depends on the information of easy methods to market one of the best merchandise to one of the best suited viewers for it. With that, you may market something, however it’s additionally necessary to notice that the buyer HAS to be thought-about right here, they have to be glad and they should get outcomes.
Whereas CB has a much more seemingly probability of offering on it’s community a very good product so that you can promote, if it’s within the earn money on-line area of interest, go together with WA and turn into a promoter for them and I say this understanding full effectively I could have extra competitors, however it’s completely high quality for me.
