Clickbank Vendors: Wordpress or Another Platform for Website?

10 replies
Question for Clickbank vendors: What coding platform should a new vendor have his sales page/website built with?

Wordpress? Something else? If wordpress, is Optimizepress the best theme to use? What do the big boys use for their sites?

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance...

      Most of the top pages are simply created using HTML/CSS. Having your site coded purely in HTML/CSS provides you with complete control and ultimate flexibility.

      WordPress is fine however, and some sites use this backend in order to make setting up their site easier because they don't know HTML or they cannot afford a custom design.

      Personally I don't like the limitations that WordPress and especially OptimizePress offer. In order to get a really high-end custom look and feel you'd need a custom HTML/CSS design.

      FWIW, ultimately the platform whether it's WordPress/OptimizePress or HTML/CSS won't matter nearly as much as the copy on your page, the offer, your market, etc.

      Also, keep in mind you can always upgrade/change your sales page (and you should by improving it) as time goes on. So if you begin with WordPress you can always have a new higher end custom version developed once you have the sales to justify it.

      If you begin with WordPress I would recommend Thrive Themes over OptimizePress.

    I used HTML static website for the first ever product in CB. But I guess WP is better due to its flexibility and it's being more user friendly.

    But what if you want to create a members area where consumers be able to watch the videos, download PDF files and so on. How is that going to work with wordpress or other platforms?

    Anyone knows what this vendor has used to create his site: Venus Factor

    If you want a private member's area then Wordpress has many different plugins that provide this functionality. One is S2Member. If you decide to go with an HTML site, there are scripts you can use such as Amember. Inside the member's area they can watch videos, download your tools or guides, etc. Nonmembers won't be able to access this area unless they pay or have a password and username.

    As far as setting up a CB site as a vendor, it's basically the same setup you'd have anywhere. You can get more information from Clickbank's help site where they give a lot of details about how to get set up as a vendor.

    Personally, I have used both wordpress and html pages. There is a learning curve to either platform, but I prefer doing html pages. Much more control and flexibility. Potentially better security. Wordpress has some hacker vulnerabilities, and should be updated often. Unfortunately, sometimes the update breaks some of your plugins or causes other problems. Or at least, that's what happened to me enough to quit using wordpress.

    Many people love wordpress, though. If you do go that route, I'll second the suggestion for Thrive Themes above, and suggest you look at MemberMouse for the membership area.

    I use a program called rapidweaver, with stacks plugins. It only runs on mac, though. The stacks plugins are third party extensions and plugins that are easy to use and add .

    I'm currently setting up a new membership website, and for the membership area and product downloads, I'm using DLGuard. I've been using this program (its actually php script) for many years. Great program, and great support. DLGuard can also work with a wordpress site.

    In the old days it seamed like everyone just used HTML/CSS or landing page templates to make their sales pages. At this day in age I think you're better off using Wordpress. Not sure which landing page plugin would be the best, the one I've used in the past wasn't that great. However, EasyDigitalDownloads plugin as an addon module for JVZoo which I think might make downloads and member area stuff work a little easier.
