Clickbank Vendor Pages with too many "Leaks". Will You Promote Them?

5 replies
I have shortlisted few products in categories that are selling well on Clickbank. I like the commission per sale, the product etc.

However, what turns me off is the fact that there are too many "traffic leaks" on the page. For example, one landing page has:
  • A Phone Number displayed right at the top (They might make the call first and make the purchase later since their queries would have been resolved. By then the cookies would have been deleted, and with it my referrer id)
  • Link to follow the fanpage of vendor (They might become facebook fans, and covert much later after engaging regularly with facebook updates.)
  • Watch Youtube videos (Again, they might decide to watch or subscribe to Youtube Channel, and covert much later after consuming the video content.)
  • Email address to send product related questions. (Similar to phone number displayed above).

These are all ways in which I feel I might loose out on sales.

So am I simply over-reacting/over-analyzing or is this something to worry about?

Thanks in advance.

    One leak is too many.

    I usually don't worry about phone numbers and social media links. If the buyer is not ready to buy now, or within the first few days of clicking the link, I consider them cold leads.

    The email opt-in might be a problem.

    But then again, if you don't feel good about promoting a product, then maybe you shouldn't?

      Thanks for your inputs.

      The point about treating such traffic as cold leads does makes sense.

      Actually I liked the product, and it seems like the only good one it its category. (It's from the Yoga Niche).

      Anyways, I think I should give it a try and see how it goes.

    They are.

    Each one that you've listed is a comparatively minor leak (compared with, say, an "opt-in" on the sales page, which is just a categorical "no" for any serious affiliate). Although I'm instinctively inclined to the view that "one leak is too many", with Travlinguy, above, I've taken a view with one or two of those, in my time, I admit. I don't know how I'd feel about all four of them on the same page, mind you.

    I don't know. I often ask myself exactly the same question.

    It is true that if you have an absolutely "zero-tolerance" approach to all leaks of any kind at all, then it becomes pretty difficult to find products to promote.

    For me, it depends on the circumstances. For example, if I'm already promoting two/three products successfully in a niche, and looking for a third/fourth one as an "extra", I'll typically be a little less "selective" about it (but would still never touch anything with an actual opt-in, under any circumstances.)
