How to save our commissions from stealing?

13 replies
Hello!
Hope you're doing great.

This is Bari. I need to ask is it possible that someone can steal your commission? If it so then how can we save our commissions from stealing? I'm affiliate and promoting clickbank product. I got many impressions and clicks on my ads (using bing ads) with zero conversion. What's the reason behind that either someone stealing my commission or is there any problem in my campaign?

    Without seeing your ad, nobody can really tell. If you are direct linking that could be a problem. you should be sending to a squeeze page then once you get the email address you should redirect from your thank you page. Or, at the very least be using a redirect if you insist on direct linking

      I'm not using direct linking. Even I have proper website. You can visit my site by clicking on this link www.manifestationmiracle.cf. Would you like to tell me about the problems of this site?

        Where do I even start?

        The site does load quickly, I'll give you that.

        Beyond that, it's a mess.

        There's no real content on the home page. There are links, but you are leaving it up to the visitor to choose among a dozen or more possibilities (at least, that's what it loos like).

        If you click the Manifestation Miracle link in the menu, you do get more copy. But it's presented in a very light typeface, which is extremely hard to read. The copy itself is all over the place, and in broken English. This isn't meant as a personal attack, as your English is better than my whatever you were born speaking. But it just won't cut it in this case.

        The path from your ad, to your landing page, to the vendor's sales page should carry the same "scent." The message from the ad should be the first thing they see when they click, not a girl in a wet tee shirt. You should have a dedicated landing page for your ads, designed to do only two things -- collect their email address and lead them to the vendor's page.

          That copy doesn't convey the price, so the visitor has to click the "Buy" button with virtually zero understanding of what you are selling or for how much.

          I clicked the "Buy" button anyway...
          only to be presented with an interminably looooong VSL.

          I concluded that you really must not have wanted to sell anything, and must have been attempting to entertain. On that front, you might do better with more wet t-shirts.

    If you are using Clickbank's encoded links, there's little likelihood that someone is stealing your commission. It is common for some people to notice that a product is on CB and simply get a new link with their own ID. Not much you can do to stop that.

    It's also possible for the vendor to "steal" your commission by using a leaky sales page. Look for things like an opt-in list or link to an affiliate program on the sales page.

    Absent those, it's likely that there is a disconnect between what your ads promise and what the clicker sees when they land. One of the dangers of direct linking.

    This would be my guess. Just because you get clicks doesn't mean you will make sales.

    Bing will try their best to get clicks on your ads. If your ads are not targeted properly, these clicks may only be surfers.

    If you are direct linking, you are throwing your money away.

    I would prefer cloaking your affiliate links using 301 redirect. If you are using WordPress then there are some plugins which can help you in this. You can go for Pretty links lite, Thristy affiliates etc.

    You may not be a victim of theft, but a victim of choosing the wrong product, the wrong ad or something else.

    It's not always someone stealing when things don't work the way you thought they might.

  • Well... to really tell, create a $7 info-product in your niche, and see if people buy it. If they dont, still.... then you may have to exit out of your niche and go into another - if you're not emotionally attached with it. Plus you have to have more tracking systems in place if you're going to try and gauge why you aren't getting Clickbank sales.

    That CB product sales page/video is shit. That's one of the reasons If not the MAIN reason nobody is buying.

    Traffic can't even buy anything because the video is locking them out of the checkout.

    Stay away from shitty CB sales pages like that. Those are the type of CB vendors that will hose you any chance they get. They suck. Their ideas suck and their CB sales pages suck more than they do.

    Everyone above is correct, you've got a complete mess going on, there's literally no sales funnel, it's all so confusing.

    Conversion depends on many factors such as landing pages used, ad copy, pre-selling materials, niche and quality of traffic.

    Do you split test your ads with different landing pages, headlines, color of headlines, keywords etc?

    I saw your site. It is confusing as a normal visitor to understand the purpose of the site. May be that's why there is no conversion.

    Are you targeting females only? Why did you add so many images about the product before even describing the problem the product is gonna solve?

    Please take a closer look at your site and make it better for visitors.. that's what I suggest.
