Heyyy

So I'm trying to sell my first eBook though I'm alittle torn between using e-Junkie or ClickBank so I thought I'd gather some opinions...

I really want to use E-Junkie for the way they handle the actual selling of your product, and I really want to use ClickBank mostly for the affiliate base...

My question is; is it possible to sell through e-Junkie, but still use Clickbank's affiliate base?

If this is unadvised, then which would you recommend going with; JUST e-junkie, or JUST Clickbank?

Thanks guys!

    Yes you can do both from E-Junkie from what I understand. Here's their help page: Selling with ClickBank

    Hope that helps a little,
    Mark

    Bre,

    I would go with E-Junkie over ClickBank and I say this as I hate ClickBanks refund rate and feel many people take advantage of it, but ClickBank is great for exsposure, so even with the refund rate issue you still might want to consider promoting your ebook with them.

    All the best,

    Martin

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll look more into how I can sell through e-junkie and promote through clickbank, hopefully it'll work out for me!

    @richie757, It's pretty simple, I just created an outline of what I wanted to cover in my eBook relating to my niche. I laid out bullet points as main topics and converted those into chapters - just wrote and wrote till I was done, then edited, then turned my document into a PDF. I'm a writer by nature so it wasn't too difficult for me - the marketing is going to be a challenge though haha! Good luck!

    I say Clickbank because its more well known and easier for affiliates to promote your product. As far as the refunds... High quality products have lower refund rates.

    Hi Bre

    e-Junkie and ClickBank are not really "alternatives", per se. In fact, it's very common to use them both together.

    ClickBank is a retailer (with built-in affiliate network and affiliate payment processing, and the stuff you know about).

    e-Junkie is only a product delivery service. e-Junkie doesn't handle the money at all. If you sell through e-Junkie, you still have to have a way of collecting the money from the customers. You can, of course, use ClickBank for that part of the equation (and e-Junkie is all set up to interact with ClickBank, just as it is with PayPal, Google Checkout, 2Checkout and others).

    Don't think of e-Junkie as "a place to sell". It isn't really "a place to sell". It's a place to deliver a product to a customer who has paid somewhere else.

    Yes, and many marketers do so.

    But equally, don't imagine that the fact that your product's payment-page operates through ClickBank is automatically going to attract affiliates to it: you still need to promote your product to affiliates, to attract us.

    Simply put... you can use Clickbank as your payment processor and use E-junkie to deliver your ebook. Clickbank integrates automatically with E-junkie.

    Thus you can put your product on the Clickbank Marketplace with this set up. You will attract a lot of affiliates but will still need to attract and recruit "quality" affiliates.

    In my experience, most affiliates on Clickbank will not make you any sales.

    (Keep in mind that E-Junkie also has an affiliate platform and marketplace but you have to pay affiliates using Paypal's mass pay system. Their marketplace pales in comparison to CB's though.)

    What about using Jvzoo? I am working on my ebook and was considering that as an option.
