Damn you Clickbank! Product approval "Rejected"...

Profile picture of the author smodha by smodha Posted: 03/07/2013
Hey WF,

I have just received my first Clickbank rejection (weep, weep). I submitted all the correct "paperwork" but the computer said 'no'.

What are my options? Should I look at other marketplaces? If so, any recommendations?

Thanks.

Sanj.

    Did they give you a reason for rejection?

    Sorry to hear that.

    You could put it on Warrior Plus, JVZoo, or E-Junkie.

    It's a Social Media marketing product. There's loads of them on Clickbank.com!

    Was it anything to do with making money with Google or Facebook?

    I will try that tomorrow morning. This isn't the end just yet.

    I might entice them by offering to use the CB checkout instead of Paypal. That may swing it.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Why don't you ask them the reason for rejection first. You can go for other marketplaces like jvzoo, warriorplus, ejunkie etc, but clickbank is, understandably, better than them. So, don't give up yet. All the best.

    If you ask them they will tell you why, then it would be a matter of just making the required changes. Could be as little as one little thing you forgot to include

    Anytime I have submitted a product and it has been rejected, they always provide a list of exact reasons as to why it was not approved. I then make those changes and boom, it gets approved.

    Just follow exactly what they have told you in the support ticket.

    Surely you've not submitted the product in your sig file - the one with a Paypal order link and a $497 price tag ?

    You can launch on JVzoo.

    If it's the product in your signature, first of all Clickbank will only give retailers a maximum of I think around $100 for their first product. They probably would not let a new member sell a $497 product.

    Second of all, you are using a number of images on the page (such as Albert Einstein) that would appear to be copyrighted.

    Third of all, the sales page design just sucks, to be honest. It really does not present a professional product. It looks very tacky and cheap. I would struggle to buy anything from a page that looks like that -- let alone something for nearly $500! No way.

    Wow... gotta agree, your salespage needs some serious work if you think your gonna get $500 sales. Personally, I wouldn't pay $27, and that seems the average the guru's charge for their 'out-of-the-park' next best grandslams.

    Think about it, they pull $200k launches with $27 products, then upsell and downsell... you leave yourself in almost zero chance of making a sale at that price. If the product provides value (*which I'm not saying it doesn't) - get it out there, charge a fair price $27, $47, maybe $97 max, and build your rep, add some upsells or other products...

    Have you made any sales as of yet?

    Just kidding, that was a rhetorical question, lol.

    I second the matter that that sales page is a lawsuit waiting to happen, not sure George would be too happy or Einstein for the matter.

    Good Luck!

    Is this the product they rejected?

    If so, good.

    There's enough bullshit in the marketplace without adding more to it.

    I think $497 price tag is outrageous high.

    Can you consider selling it at low front around $9.90?
    You can always upsell with a bigger ticket item.

    Don't think you can find much success with this price. Seriously!!

    ALL CLICKBANK PRODUCTS MUST BE SOLD THROUGH THE CLICKBANK CHECKOUT. That is what makes them Clickbank products.

    That sales page trying to sell a $500 product is like the kid working at WalMart in the children's bikes section trying to sell a Ferrari.

    Either hire someone to redo it or drop the price substantially (like down to $10-$12).

    And everybody's going to laugh and tell him what an idiot he is until he sells one.

    Price points are just pulled out of your arse anyway. It's worth what you can convince them it's worth. I would argue that he's not trying to sell to Warriors.

    The single biggest complaint I hear from successful marketers is "I don't charge enough."

    The single most common piece of advice I hear them giving is "charge more."

    I heard Andy Jenkins on a phone call with Jeff Walker saying he was planning on selling Video Boss at the $47 price point. Jeff said he should make it $497. He did. It sold.

    When that video was leaked, this forum exploded with people bitching about how outrageous it was to mark up the price that much without adding any more features or content. Why, how dare he do such a thing.

    Meanwhile, he cleared what? Five million in gross sales on the first day?

    Man, he sure should have paid attention to these Warriors, all right.
