    Clickbank...what do you think of this site?
    I am new to Clickbank so just trying to get any reviews of them.

    Thanks for your time and advice.

    I've also just started to use them. Looks liek they'll be good for individual PPC campaigns.

    Try a combiantion of approaches....one directly linked and another with your own optimized landing page.

    Google allows you to run A/B testing within the same campaign. For the same daily or monthly ad spend, you can distribute the tests evenly and see what is working.

    I find that ClickBank products convert at less than 5% for me. Good luck.

    Clickbank is interesting in that it will not pay you unless you have 5 sales from a certain set of credit card types (certain number from visa, mc, amex, etc.) I was surprised to see that rule.

    It's because people were signing up to get discounts on products.

    It's true that CB has a few very strange rules, the most annoying being a 6 week 'no-questions-asked' refund policy. Depending on what you sell your reversal rate can be unacceptably high.

    If you plan on selling affiliate marketing related products good luck. People in this market segment buy an item and then just ask for a refund directly from CB, leaving both the seller and affiliate without their rightful rewards.

    On the other hand, if you sell general interest stuff to 'the general public' you will get a lot less reversals - my reversal rate is below 2% but will vary depending on the products you sell. You will always get some free loaders, that's part and parcel of this business.

    AdJumpCM mentioned a less than 5% conversion rate. This is actually not bad at all. If you get to around 3% you should be happy, keep that in mind when doing ppc. On the other hand the bounty is generally quite high, making it worthwhile.

    Good luck, Frank

    Thanks for the good info about a/b testing on google and the CRAZY clickbank rules - I did not know they had such strange rules.

    Guess I'm too lazy to read a 20pg disclaimer.

    Speedbumps are a common theme throughout this industry of affiliate marketing.

    Persistence and Perseverance are your best ROIs.
