The Best Product On Clickbank

8 replies
Hi everyone,
I am lost on something I saw on clickbank,so I decided to throw it open to the house for clarification.

I have been trying to promote some products on clickbank only to see on the salespage the vendor has an optin form where opne can optin for a FREE version of what is offred on his/her page.



Now,my question is,if I happen to refer someone(via my referall link) to one of these sites that am affiliated to,and the person didn't buy the first time and end up giving his/her email to get that free report.And after some weeks,the visitor now bought as a result of several email communications from the vendor's site.


Who will now get the commission?

  • Hi adetutu,

    One of the things you should be on the lookout for, when choosing products to promote, is an optin page right there on the sales letter.

    Once you see that, you should cross that particular product off your list and move on.

    And - if you're doing affiliate marketing the smart way - you should send your prospects to your own squeeze page and capture their addresses BEFORE you send them on to a vendor's web site.

    You want to build a business - not make an occasional sale.

    Warmest regards,

    Paul

      I agree with Paul, many vendor at clickbank are using this technique to take advantage of others effort.

      Take time to read the sales page, and try to click the buy now button to see if your affiliate id is in the payment page.

      Paul gave you sound advice about building your own list of contacts, however, I have to disagree about not promoting an offer because of an opt-in form on the sales page...

      Make sure you read the offers affiliate page, most will continue to email your affiliate link if you generated the lead. As long as its a trusted vendor, they will mostly do the right thing by their affiliates...

      Good luck!

        You will get commission unless the vendor uses his own affiliate link or 60 days has passed (after which your affiliate cookie will expire) or the cookie is otherwise deleted.

        I agree unreservedly with Ed and Paul above.

        Almost all
        serious, pro-affiliates agree fairly unreservedly with Ed and Paul above, and there are reasons for that.

        There are actually many, many different reasons for it, and it's a pretty complicated and very widely misunderstood subject. The key point is that if your prospective customers opt in to the vendor's list before buying/paying, you have no way of controlling what hoplinks they're sent by the vendor, in email follow-ups. If he sends his own, or his wife's, or his dog's, they'll overwrite your affiliate cookie, when clicked on by the recipient, and there's nothing that you (or ClickBank) can do about that. With 15,000+ products there to choose from, this is a problem you don't need.

        Rather than re-hashing all the other reasons here, and opening the thread up to the inevitable arguments, misinformation and erroneous attributions of causation which arise every single time this is discussed here, I'm just going to refer you to one thread, Adetutu. If you read the whole thread carefully it will completely clarify the entire issue for you, and I suspect you'll never again want to promote one of these products. The solution is to ask the vendor for another copy of the sales page without his opt-in on it (as so many professional vendors provide, as they have to, to attract serious affiliates). If he won't provide it, just choose another product instead.

        Here's the thread you need to read: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...oduct-opt.html

    Just depends on how long the cookie on the site lasts. For instance, if it's a one day cookie, you'll have very little chance of getting the commission if that person returns a week later. Look for sites that use a one year cookie. That way you are guaranteed commission even if that person subscribes to the newsletter and doesn't purchase for months.

    If he go to the site directly without any hoplinks in 60 days, you'll still get the commission..
