[Beta Testers] Callen's New Clickbank Analytics software for Affiliates

22 replies
We're getting ready to release a brand new Clickbank analytics software for Affiliate Marketers (called CBSurge), and we need beta testers to put it through the ringer before we make it available to everyone.

We're making the beta test program available to Warriors only!

We've done this in the past, and you all helped out a ton... again, thanks for that!

Here is the short description of CBSurge. It's a firefox plugin that works directly on the Clickbank marketplace site. One of the best features is it's ability to tell you a difficulty rating for ranking in Google for the "product name keyword" of EACH of the products. You click one button, and it does all of the SEO analysis (checks backlinks, PR, other offpage ranking factors, onpage factors, etc of the competing sites for that "product name keyword" phrase. Then, runs it through our Marketability formula, and says if it's "Marketable" or not). So you can quickly narrow down the products you want to promote, within a few seconds.

It also shows a ton of other analytics like Top Gravity products, Top Movers/Shakers, etc... And for each product, you can view up to a full year's worth of past sales data (gravity, rank, commission %, etc).

There's also a really cool viral feature that's available only to upgrade users (see here: http://www.cbsurge.com/elite-video.php )

It's a really COOL software, and there's literally nothing else like it on the market. You'll see what I mean...

So we need 15-20 beta testers.

To setup your beta account (for the first 15 SERIOUS users), go to the following URL and signup as a free user. Then come back here and PM me the email address you registered with. I'll upgrade you to Elite.

We need serious beta testers and not just curiosity seekers.

Here's the link to signup as a free user: http://www.cbsurge.com/warrior-beta

As a beta user, I just ask that you test the software as if you were a normal every-day user. Please make a bullet list of any/all bugs that you find or features that you'd like to see added (if any).

Thanks for the help Warriors!

      EDIT: Why is it every time I see the name "Callen", I always think of Brad first..and not Matt??
      Sorry about that Matt...my sincere apologies!

    Just signed up, waiting to be upgraded.

    Anyway, what is the use for the "Show Affiliate Links To Other People In Clickbank Marketplace" feature?

    If you're trying to sell a product, you send the visitor straight to the landing page (Clickbank hoplink).

    And the users that are referred to download the free version are going to use their affiliate link when promoting a particular product.

    So can you clear this up for me?

    I watched the video, but I still don't get it. People I recommend this to are probably marketers as well.

      Hey Shaun,
      The "affiliate links" viral feature is just a really cool and easy way to spread your links to potentially hundreds of people, without doing a whole lot of "promoting".

      From my experience, a lot of affiliate marketers will go to the marketplace looking for a product to promote themselves, and one of the first things they'll do is click on the product link from the marketplace to check out the salesletter. AND many of them will purchase a review copy for themselves. OR if it's a product in the e-business (IM) category, a lot of affiliates are buying those products for their own use. If those you refer to download the free version of cbsurge click on the links from the marketplace, YOUR affiliate cookie will be dropped into their browser. So you'll get credit for the sale, without really "doing" anything other than recommending an analytics software.

      You're not literally promoting every product in the marketplace to those you referred. You just refer them to download cbsurge, and when they use the software, your affiliate links are subtly replacing all of the product links in the marketplace.

      It's not the main feature of the software, but it is one that has a LOT of potential for upgraded users. And most of the main features are available in the free version, so it's a no-brainer... which helps out those who upgraded because that means their "branded copy" will be in the hands of a lot more people...

      anyway, hope that helps clear up your questions...

        Yes thanks for the explanation.

        Oh and is it possible to add product titles into the "Top Movers and Shakers" feature? I mean, yeah I could click on it and see what it is but it would be a lot easier if the title's in the pop-up.

        Also, what does the number that decides if a product is marketable/not marketable mean?

        Great product here - loving it at the moment!

          Thanks Shaun.
          I'll see what we can do about the titles idea. We'd have to adjust a few things with sizes of the popup and stuff, but it could probably be done.

          The marketability ratings are shown in the legend/key just above the products. It says...

          Marketable < 40
          Not Marketable > 40

          We'll try to make that a little more obvious. Right now, it's kind of hidden. With our formula, we check a ton of different things (backlinks, PR, other off page seo factors, onpage factors, and other stuff... then plug it into our formula to get a rating number) to see how difficult the "product name keyword" would be to rank high in Google. That's what "marketable" and "not marketable" means.

          You can change the keyword that it's searching with by clicking the [+] next to the product. Then click "Manual Check". The keyword in there is the one that it's searching with by default. Some of the new products (mainly ranking high in ebusiness) may need to have some spaces added to the keywords. These things will update over time as more and more users get the software. But most default keywords are the accurate product names (we manually went through all 16,000 products).

    Looks like a tool that i can really use. I've been into clickbank for quite some time now as an affiliate and i'm occasionally on the lookout for good products to promote. This should come in handy and i could offer some suggestions as well, as to what i as an affiliate of CB would want.
