ClickBank Questions by Stephan Miller

It would seem that Clickbank would provide more for their customers. Obviously, when it comes to internet marketing and affiliate programs, you could put it in your top 10 links. No other database of affiliate programs offers such a possibility for profit on eitherrepparttar 102410 affiliate side orrepparttar 102411 product creation site. And you can't beatrepparttar 102412 fact thatrepparttar 102413 commissions from over 10,000 products get consolidated into one check. But there are still a few lingering questions that may get you thinking.

What is up withrepparttar 102414 site? I mean, a site shouldn't be overly complex. In fact, complexity can be a turn off. Then again, I have found more complex site templates from free sites. And its not just that. How many of you Clickbank affiliates have found news about Clickbank or FAQ's about Clickbank on a forum, clickedrepparttar 102415 link andrepparttar 102416 FAQ is onrepparttar 102417 Clickbank domain. But, if you go torepparttar 102418 Clickbank homepage, there is no link torepparttar 102419 page you just visited.

I don't know about you, but if I were running a business, I would make sure that customers and vendors could get all ofrepparttar 102420 information possible and not have to find out news through third party sources. But, onrepparttar 102421 other hand, I can't complain. The checks do come in. I have never had to search for a customer service link onrepparttar 102422 site, because there has been no reason to. You make sales and you get a check. It's that simple and I have never found anyone who says otherwise.

Then you've got to wonder aboutrepparttar 102423 search feature. There is none. But why? For one reason, if Clickbank itself had a search feature, any internet user who is familiar with Clickbank clicking on an affiliate's hoplink could recognize this. They could then go to Clickbank and buyrepparttar 102424 product under their own affiliate ID at up to 75% off, which wouldn't matter much to Clickbank orrepparttar 102425 product seller, at least inrepparttar 102426 beginning. They still collect their cash.

But eventually,repparttar 102427 product seller would notice a drop in sales. Affiliates would become less than satisfied withrepparttar 102428 results of all their hard work and stop working as hard to make sales that weren't coming in anyway. Therefore, there would be less advertising ofrepparttar 102429 product in total. You can't underestimaterepparttar 102430 value of an affiliate army who are rewarded accordingly.

There are plenty of third party products available that will essentially build a search engine on a Clickbank affiliate's site for them.

Even without this, there are some out there who know what a Clickbank Hoplink looks like and just where to put their own Clickbank ID in order to make a commission for themselves.

Shouldrepparttar 102431 affiliates themselves be responsible for protecting their sales. I don't think so. Of course there are products that can help you protect your links, but shouldn'trepparttar 102432 responsibility rest onrepparttar 102433 product developer. Our heroes,repparttar 102434 third-party software developers, come torepparttar 102435 rescue again by providing software to do this for you, but only a few ofrepparttar 102436 product developers selling through Clickbank rely on these products. This leaves a lot of affiliate out inrepparttar 102437 cold, relying on link cloaking to protect their sales.

Why Join 2 Tier Affiliate Programs?

Written by Terence Tan

Likerepparttar more common single tier affiliate programs, 2 tier affiliate programs are a great basis for web-based partnerships between merchants and affiliates. Merchants can focus their efforts on what they should do best-creating high quality products and getting them to customers. Meanwhile, affiliates concentrate on producing interesting content to attract web traffic. And when they successfully refer visitors to buy affiliate products, an affiliate commission is earned.

However, 2 tier affiliate programs have an additional attraction for affiliates. When they sign up sub-affiliates under them, and these sub-affiliates successfully make affiliate sales,repparttar 102408 original affiliate also earns a referral commission. The result is that affiliates not only make a profit from their direct sales efforts, but also benefit fromrepparttar 102409 leveraged effects of sub-affiliates under them.

While 2 tier affiliate programs are definitely a new and rapidly growing trend in affiliate marketing,repparttar 102410 traditional rules still apply. Choose only good products, with high sales conversions (check outrepparttar 102411 persuasiveness ofrepparttar 102412 merchants website), and only work with merchants who pay regularly! After all, there's no reason to waste precious traffic on affiliate products are hard to sell, or on merchants who don't make it a point to send those commissions on time.
