With 50 Websites, Would You Create 50 Different Clickbank Accounts?

by magentawave 4 replies
Lets say you have a site that reviews 5 Clickbank ebooks about 'How To Make Widgets.'

And then you have another similar review/affiliate site that sells 5 Clickbank ebooks on 'How To Look Like A Nerd.'

Here are my questions...

1) For the sake of tracking, would you create a seperate Clickbank account for each of those sites? So if you had 50 different sites like the sites described above, would you create 50 different Clickbank accounts?

2) Or would you create just ONE Clickbank account and use that ONE Clickbank nickname in all your affiliate links for ALL your 50 websites?

Thank you!
Steve

    Surely it's much easier to use one account and just use tracking ids for your hops? I promote about 30 different products from one account and I've no problem with tracking. I thought people only created separate accounts when selling their own products.

    Clickbank (unlike 2Checkout) allows you to sell many different products from the one account.
    The main drawback is that the affiliate commission is fixed at the same rate across all products on that account
    - you need multiple clickbank accounts if you want to offer different commissions.

    There is no inherent advantage to using multiple Clickbank publisher accounts for multiple products when one will suffice (unless you're offering different commision rates).

    You have to specify a return url for each product so for the sake of tracking you can put a different identifier in the return url for each product.

    It is much easier to manage one account than to manage 50 accounts with 1 product in each .

      Thanks Sean, but I do use a separate account for my own ebooks, but this would be for promoting other peoples products.

    No, need for all those accounts. You can track ClickBank hops with the tracking ID (tid):
