ClickBank and eBooks

by 5 comments
Newbie here . . . and I have a question about using ClickBank with two eBooks that I've written.

Here's the deal. They both sell really well and all my transactions go through PayPal. However, I know I lose a lot of sales because some people HATE PayPal or just want to do a straight credit card transaction.

So here is my question: Can I sell my eBooks through ClickBank without offering them for affiliate programs? I am in the #1 Google position for my micro-niche and I am totally okay with the sales now. But I would like to offer a different way to pay for the eBooks rather than just PayPal.

I know I could also get a merchant account, but I want to look into ClickBank handling the transactions first.

Thanks in advance for your input.

    Yes - just set the affiliate commission rate to zero

      You can get around that by:

      1) Opening a 2nd seller account at Clickbank - they used to offer a discount for seller accounts after the first one, I think $25.

      2) Using software that lets you sell multiple products from one Clickbank seller account. Sam Stephens of DLGuard has one called HopGuard, and Adrian Ling has one call EasyClickmate. There may be others too.
      Note: this is only necessary if you want to use affiliates (which is
      not required in this case)

    CB gives you the option of listing your product in the marketplace - it's not required. If you are not in the marketplace, the affilaites can't find you in the first place.. And if you set the comission rate to zero, like harvey mentioned, you wont have anyone trying to use their own links

    There is a fine line between being respectful and offensive to one's point of view and in advertisement it can either lead to effective marketing or a lot of trouble. As they say that one man's controversial idea is another man's offensive idea. Sometimes resorting to provocative campaigns are totally worthwhile if they help you to increase your sales and establish a sustainable brand name in the market. But does that only work for big corporations like Apple, Coca-cola to take risks like these? Can small brands or startups consider such tactics for their advertisement plan as well without destroying their amateur brand legacy? These intriguing questions always pop up in my mind and I think that whether is it a good idea to create advertisements that are beautiful and genuine to attract customers which has a greater possibility of going flat with minimum response from the market or to go for calculated controversial ad campaign against your competitor to gain a lot of public attention?

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions
