While I didn’t start my affiliate marketing journey with Clickbank, I quickly found success selling the products of others, then later created three products of my own that I sold via Clickbank.
Below I have listed several benefits of using Clickbank, separated by publisher benefits, followed by benefits for product creators.
Clickbank Benefits for Affiliate Publishers:
Great for Beginners. Clickbank is one of the easiest platforms to start an affiliate marketing business. It is easy to sign up and start promoting offers within minutes.
Weekly Payout. They have a waiting period but after you get established as an affiliate, you can get paid via direct deposit on a weekly basis.
Lots of Products to Promote. You can likely find a product to cover any niche market you serve. There are over 6,000,000 products to choose from in the Clickbank market place.
Clickbank Benefits for Product Creators:
Excellent Tracking & Reporting. The system easily tracks sales reports (daily and weekly), affiliate sales, returns, payments, and more.
Consumer Confidence. Your customers can rest assured that they have up to 60 days to ensure that they like what they bought, or they will get a refund. I personally have bought products from unknown authors based on the Clickbank guarantee which gave me peace of mind.
A Network of Affiliates. If you are selling a product, Clickbank offers has a network of thousands of affiliates (over 500,000) that are ready to sell great products.
Allows for Recurring Payments. If you have a product that you want to accept recurring payments for such as a paid newsletter, membership site, software subscription, or a product with a trial period.
Simple Ecommerce System. Using Clickbank is a great way to get your product setup to sell with a trusted ecommerce system (as opposed to PayPal) that includes a digital product delivery system.
If you are not using Clickbank yet, I encourage you to sign up. It’s free (but of course any reasonable affiliate program should be.)
