choosing a clickbank ID name

12 replies
does it make any difference what name you use?

I think I saw a video where the guy mentioned something about choosing a name , but I can't find it again now. I think he mentioned something about not using anything a potential customer would find offensive (pretty obvious) , but he also gave some other suggestions.

Any tips on selecting a good name?
Does the customer even see your clickbank ID?

    Just choose a clickbank name that is easy to remember for you like your name, your business name, etc....

    Make sure you write it down for safekeeping.

    If you do not mask your clickbank link the customer can see your affiliate I.D. like adding a banner for a product that you are promoting where you insert your Clickbank I.D. which is not that big of a deal in my opinion.

    But if your creating a hoplink though Clickbank to promote a product which 9 times out of ten is the case, they will only see your affiliate hoplink ( Again not a big deal! )

    Most people are not worried about your tracking link, they want to pick up the product that you are promoting.

    9 out of ten people especially if your not in the internet marketing niche will not even know what an affiliate link is anyways

    If you're an affiliate, they can see it at the bottom of the order-page, where it says something like "[affiliate=wulfgar]".

    (If you don't mask your hoplink, some will work out from what they see in their browser-bar that they've followed an affiliate-link, too.)

    The people you're sending to a ClickBank sales page (or order page) ought to know that you're an affiliate anyway (and ought to have some understanding of what that means, and specifically the fact that they're not paying anything extra because of that) so it shouldn't matter much.

    A name that your customers will recognize/expect, or at least one that won't make them "wonder", or surprise them, can be quite a good idea. But I suspect that quite a lot of people don't notice it, anyway.

    I would select a name that looks like a "security element" at the end.

    No. It doesn't matter which username you have if you're an affiliate.

    But if you're an vendor, it can be a plus to have a username that's associated with the name of your product to make it easier for affiliates to see which product they've sold.

    It really doesn't matter. It's all personal preference. In my own case, I chose a very generic id. I didn't want anyone seeing my name in the url.

    Ya I never knew what an affiliate link was until I started doing this and 99% of your buyers are probably not going to know either. Think about it the ones that do know what an affiliate link is are probably IM's and can get your product thereselves without needing to buy from you

    Just my 2 cents

    It really doesn't matter as long as you choose a name that is easy to remember.

    the name you choose is not as important as cloaking your affiliate links.

      Try a username like indexX

      where X is, you can either replace it with a random number or letter.

      I read somewhere that you should use a name that you do NOT use anywhere else. Like don't use your website name or email prefix. Unfortunately I can't remember why you're not supposed to do that, maybe someone else here knows.
