"Refresh" Your Chances Of Collecting That ClickBank Commission ...

Written by Mike Merz

ClickBank has long been considered a simple, cost effective way to promote digital products Online.

Would be merchants are charged a one time, relatively small start up fee, which will enable them to use ClickBank' secure payment processing services to accept Online payment (fee per transaction). What makes ClickBank even more popular is their affiliate network, which allows merchants to promote their wares by establishing an affiliate program, listed free inrepparttar ClickBank MarketPlace. The merchant setsrepparttar 102557 commission rate, and hasrepparttar 102558 ability to build an affiliate "army" to help promote their digital product/service. From that point on, ClickBank takes care of everything. Payment processing, affiliate commission payment, stats, etc.

But there is one major, easily seen downside to affiliate promotions. ClickBank uses what is known as "hoplinks" asrepparttar 102559 affiliate commission tracking method.

Here is an example: < http://hop.clickbank.net/?xxxxx.im4newbies >

The section ofrepparttar 102560 affiliate "hoplink" containingrepparttar 102561 x's is replaced byrepparttar 102562 affiliate's ID. The text that follows (afterrepparttar 102563 period ...) isrepparttar 102564 merchant ID.

The problem occurs when promoting this URL, as is.

Anyone with a ClickBank affiliate ID hasrepparttar 102565 ability to replacerepparttar 102566 advertiser's ID with their own, even if they are makingrepparttar 102567 purchase themselves, and takerepparttar 102568 commission.

The advertiser, that went throughrepparttar 102569 pains of promotingrepparttar 102570 URL inrepparttar 102571 first place, gets nothing.

The Key to a Successful Affiliate Program

Written by Michael Southon

Two Christmases ago I tugged on one of those paper crackers and after a small bang, out popped a piece of yellow paperrepparttar size of a credit card.

On one side was a riddle that didn't make much sense, but onrepparttar 102556 other side was an 'Inspirational Quote' that made a lot of sense.

So much so, that I still have it in my wallet.

This is what it said: "The shortest and best way to make your fortune is to let people see clearly that it is in their interests to promote yours".

I'm constantly amazed to see affiliate programs that offer 20%, or even as little as 15%, to their affiliates.

It is generally accepted thatrepparttar 102557 production of any information product is only 10 percent ofrepparttar 102558 whole process.
