CBMultiLink 3.10 Updated - Multiple Landing Pages for ClickBank Vendors - IMPORTANT UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS

Category: Company Announcements, eBook Marketing & Publishing, ClickBank — Answers 2000 @ 11:38 pm

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you join ClickBank as a vendor. CBMultiLink is our company’s product.

A new version, version 3.10, of CBMultiLink our script that allows ClickBank vendors to offer their affiliates a choice of multiple landing pages is now available.

There are two main features in the new release:

  1. For "normal" ClickBank landing pages, ClickBank automatically adds hop= with the nickname of the affiliate to the landing page’s URL. Many affiliates and vendors don’t like this for various reasons, including a feeling that it may encourage commission “theft” (customers substituting their affiliate ID for the actual affiliate’s so as to get some money off their purchases). So, until now, previous versions of CBMultiLink have removed the hop= from landing page URLs. However, it has come to our attention that some vendors have features on their websites that rely on the hop= being present, so we now have an option in the admin screens of CBMultiLink that allows vendors to choose - using a single mouse click - whether or not to include the hop= in their landing page URLs.
  2. Although the primary purpose of CBMultiLink is to allow vendors to offer their affiliates a choice of landing pages, one extra feature we have included is an option to generate cloaked ClickBank payment links (so as to conceal the vendor ID, again to discourage commission “theft”). In version 3.10 of CBMultiLink, this feature has been further extended - vendors using ClickBank’s more advanced features such as skins for their payment form, can now include these URL parameters in their cloaked payment links.

IMPORTANT UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS: If upgrading from a previous version of the script, assuming you want to keep your existing settings and landing pages - replace all files in the CBMultiLink installation, except do NOT replace cmconfig.php or cmconfig2.php - as these store your settings!

If all this sounds like double Dutch, don’t worry - these are new features aimed at more advanced ClickBank vendors. That said, CBMultiLink, and all the other tools in what we call the CB Vendor Power Toolkit, really are essential tools for every serious ClickBank vendor. Visit the CB Vendor Power Toolkit website to see why.

ClickBank Affiliates: Redesigning a ClickBank offer page

Category: Affiliate Programs, Webmasters/Web Design, ClickBank — Answers 2000 @ 11:36 am

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you join ClickBank as a vendor. CBMultiLink is our company’s product.

If you are a ClickBank affiliate, one thing that you may wish to do is “redesign” a vendor’s offer page, so as to present the product pitch in a different way. There are several reasons why you might want to do this, including:

  1. You might believe that you can create a more effective or more attractive offer page.
  2. You might want to tailor the pitch so as to appeal to your audience.
  3. Some vendors that offer multiple products for sale will set affiliate traffic to link to the home page of their site - but an affiliate (you) who wants to promote only a particular product, might prefer to skip these intermediate steps, and send the buyer directly to the payment link. Note: Vendors with multiple products would be well-advised to get a copy of CBMultiLink, as they can use that to allow their affiliates to link directly to both their home page, and product-specific pages).

The first question is: Is it allowed, within ClickBank’s rules, for an affiliate to redesign a sales offer page?

My understanding at the time of writing (check with ClickBank’s terms of service or ask them if unsure) is that it permitted, but only if the affiliate gets the explicit permission of the vendor in question.

The second question is: How to do it?

Anyway, what you need to do is do View Source on the vendor’s sales page. Look for the ClickBank payment link, which should look something like this:

http://productid.vendor.pay.clickbank.net

Where
- productid identifies the product, and is usually (but not always) a number.
- vendor is the vendor’s ClickBank nickname.

Now design your own offer page, and for the payment link, insert a link to.

http://productid.affiliate_vendor.pay.clickbank.net

Where
- productid is copied directly from the original payment link
- vendor is also copied directly from the original payment link
- affiliate is your ClickBank nickname

This will work, but it does have some limitations:

  1. This method works for most vendors, but may not work for those vendors with server-side complex scripted sites
  2. Users purchasing through this type of payment link are not “cookied”. As a result, you will only receive credit for the sale if the visitor has not previously clicked on somebody else’s affiliate link.

The third question is: Is there a better way to do this?

Yes.

If the vendor gets a copy of CBMultiLink, they can set up as many different landing pages (including product-specific pages) as they want, all of which affiliates can directly link to. Moreover, the vendor could even offer branded pages for their top affiliates, or allow his affiliates to host their own pitch pages.

Using CBMultiLink in this way, will also solve the two issues with the affiliate_vendor type payment links:

  1. This method can be made to work for all vendors, even those with complex scripted sites.
  2. Users will always be “cookied”. That means you will receive affiliate credit for the sale, regardless of whether the visitor has previously clicked on somebody else’s affiliate link.

More than 15 Years with ClickBank!

Category: Company Announcements, Affiliate Programs, ClickBank — Answers 2000 @ 11:05 am

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you buy one of the products mentioned in this blog post, or if you join ClickBank as a vendor.

Earlier this month, an important anniversary passed, which I had previous failed to mention…. it is 15 years (or was on March 3rd) since we joined ClickBank. I have to say, in retrospect that it was a great decision… as we’ve made quite a bit of money as both a vendor (selling our own products) and affiliate (earning commission by promoting others products).

Here’s a review of the ClickBank affiliate program that I wrote about 9 (!) years ago. ClickBank has improved and upgraded many features since that time, as well as added new types of membership options, but if you join under the option “ClickBank for Affiliates”, it’s still fundamentally the same (hint: click the option “I have an established audience” under “Affiliates” on the ClickBank sign-up page to go directly to this option.

CBMultiLink - ClickBank Affiliate Management / Multiple Landing Page Script - Updated

Category: Company Announcements, Affiliate Programs, Webmasters/Web Design, ClickBank — Answers 2000 @ 10:54 am

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you buy one of the products mentioned in this blog post, or if you join ClickBank as a vendor.

We’ve released a new version of CBMultiLink, our tool (PHP script) for ClickBank vendors.

The main purpose of CBMultiLink is it easily allows vendors to offer their affiliates a choice of multiple landing pages to link to, while still earning credit for sales they generate (by default ClickBank only allows vendors to only give their affiliates a single landing page).

Here are some uses of CBMultiLink:

  • If a vendor offers multiple products, affiliates can link directly to the particular product’s page for the product they are promoting.
  • If a vendor has a product that appeals to different audiences, they can give their affiliates a choice of audience-specific landing pages to link to. For example, if a vendor is selling a weight loss product, they might have different pages aimed at men or women.
  • In one recent case, a ClickBank vendor had a landing page with a pop-up. The pop-up was actually highly effective in helping generating sales, so it was obviously best to keep it there for most affiliates. However, some affiliates wanted to advertise the product using a pay-per-click search engine which didn’t allow linking to pages with pop-ups - the solution: use CBMultiLink to give affiliates the choice of 2 landing pages - one with a pop-up, and one without.

CBMultiLink is easy-to-install and use, and allows an unlimited number of landing pages. It also includes a link generator for affiliates to use, and supports ClickBank tid’s (tracking ids) unlike some of its competitors.

This last feature is one of the reasons for the upgrade: we have had customers approach us who wanted to upgrade from one of one competitor’s scripts, including one called “LaunchPad”, because apparently LaunchPad doesn’t support tid’s. The newest version of CBMultiLink makes this easy: As long as you set the landing page ids in CBMultiLink to match the “offer ids” that you were previously using in LaunchPad, all existing LaunchPad affiliate links will continue to work - plus you can use the extra CBMultiLink features (like support for tid’s) as well.

Please contact us if you have questions, or visit the CBMultiLink page and watch the video to find out what CBMultiLink can do, and how easy it is to use.

Your First ClickBank Product Has Been Approved - Now What?

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you buy one of the products mentioned in this blog post, or if you join ClickBank as a vendor.

If you have written an eBook, or created another product, gone through the process of setting up a ClickBank vendor account, the question soon arises what to do next? Some people expect that they can just sit back and wait for the money to roll-in, but this rarely happens…

Our company has been with ClickBank for over 14 years, and sold all kinds of different products through their system. The fact is that in all that time, our direct sales have always been vastly more than all my affiliates combined - so the first thing that I would say: You’ve got to do your own marketing.

Some people say that affiliates will find and promote your website if your products are any good. My our experience says otherwise. I simply don’t believe it’s true “affiliates will find you if you’re good”. They may, but they don’t always - we’ve sold thousands and thousands of products, to a highly satisfied customer base, but affiliate-driven sales have always been a small part of our total sales.

I suspect that the same applies for other vendors too. Yes there are some poor quality vendors listed with ClickBank, but there are also tons of really good vendors (look beyond the Internet marketing categories), sometimes selling lots directly or through 1 or 2 affiliates, who fly under most affiliates’ radar because they never reach a critical mass of “gravity”, etc.

Let’s be honest though, from a vendor’s point of view, while it would be nice if affiliates drove tons oif sales, you don’t have to make it that important. A vendor’s real goal is to make sales, and there’s lots of ways to do that - it doesn’t have to be from affiliate traffic.

Some here are the things that I would suggest a new vendor do:

1. Promote your website to drive sales

2. Protect your ClickBank product against Thank You Page and Download theft, as much as you reasonably can without annoying legitimate customers.

Yes, there are some hardcore pirates who will never buy - but these aren’t the people you are interested in. There are plenty more people who will pirate if it’s easy to pirate, but will buy otherwise.

And doing this doesn’t have to be hard - it can be easy for - and completely transparent to your customers - if you use, CB Thank You Page Protector to do this for you.

3. Email every new customer after every sale to (a) say thank you, (b) give them your contact details again, (c) remind them what they’ve bought, (d) remind them that you’re a real person, (e) remind them how the charge will show on their billing statement, and (f) to start to build a relationship which eventually allow you to sell other products to them.

(a) to (e) will help reduce charge-backs and refunds, sometimes drastically so.

(f) will add to your bottom line.

And for the record, you can automate these emails using CB Thank You Page Protector.

4. Always work on improving your conversion rate, presentation, etc. Ideally, you should use split-testing, as shown in the video below, to fine tune your pitch pages so as to maximize conversions.

5. Did I say, promote your website to drive sales….

Using Social Proof to Increase ClickBank Sales

Category: Internet Marketing, ClickBank — Answers 2000 @ 3:57 pm

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you buy one of the products mentioned in this blog post, or if you join ClickBank as a vendor.

People have been seriously studying human behavior for many decades now. One of the the surprising things about human behavior is that we don’t make decisions in a rational way - in fact, our brains don’t work anything like the way we think that they do. There are lots of subtle queues that we take from our environment and which we use to help us make decisions.

Of course, when this kind of phenomenon came to light, businesses were keen to exploit it, so for example you may have heard of some business “priming” customers using colors, smells, or sounds. For example, supermarkets have found that playing German background music tends to increase sales of German wines, and playing French background music tends to increase sales of French wines.

Another factor that people tend to take into account when making buying decisions is what other people do: if we are uncertain, we look at what other people are doing, and tend to assume that they are making the correct decision. Although, this can often be a fairly sensible strategy, people often follow it without even being aware of it. If lots of other people are ordering the special in a restaurant, there’s a good chance that it tastes pretty good, and conversely if nobody else is ordering the special, we might expect it not to be the greatest dish that we are ever likely to eat.

Online however the situation is different, when we look for “social proof” of this type, we can’t always find it: we simply don’t know what other people visiting a website are doing. If we (or any other prospect) could see that other people are buying the same product, we might have more confidence about choosing to buy ourselves.

So my conclusion is that a merchant or seller, wishing to increase their sales and improve their conversion rate of visitors into customers, could do so, if he could find a way to give that “social proof” to potential customers.

Well, the good news is, it turns out that at least as far as ClickBank vendors are concerned, there is now a way to offer this social proof. It’s based around a clever product by ClickBank veteran, Miles Baker, and is called VeriPurchase.

Here’s how it works, you sign up for VeriPurchase (just $1 for the first 14 days), and then in their member’s area you use the menus to pick your preferred colors/design for a VeriPurchase widget. You then insert the widget into your website by simply copying and pasting a couple of lines of code - no complicated technical stuff. After that - instant social proof! VeriPurchase displays on your website a scrolling list of your recent customers, including names (shortened) and country of residence.

Why is this important?

Firstly, as mentioned, it’s a queue to potential customers that other people are buying, and we tend to mimic other people’s behavior when making our own decisions.

Secondly, the VeriPurchase widget is clearly provided by an independent and neutral third party, which means that customers can trust the information it provides - it’s not as if the vendor themselves is making claims about other customers - instead there is live social proof right there in the vendor’s web page.

So how do you use it? The best answer is to place in a prominent position in your sales letter or pitch page, when you need the customer to make a decision - for example, adjacent to the Buy Now button (incidentally you can get some great ClickBank Buy Now buttons, here).

Does it work? Well top ClickBank vendors like Earth4Energy and Fast Loss Factor report great results using VeriPurchase, so it definitely can work. Of course, as with anything like this, there’s no guarantee it will work for you - you need to try it out for yourself, and see if it works for you - but since you can try out VeriPurchase for two weeks for just $1, there is really no risk in giving it a go.

P.S. Here’s what some VeriPurchase widgets look like (the real widgets are even more effective since they are animated - these are just static screenshots). This widget is showing all the people who recently signed up for the VeriPurchase service. Makes you want to sign-up for VeriPurchase yourself, doesn’t it? Likewise if you add VeriPurchase to your site, showing proof of your sales, it can help convince more of your potential customers to buy.

Multiple Landing Pages for ClickBank Vendors

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you buy one of our products, or if you join ClickBank as a vendor.

One of the coolest things about selling digital products via ClickBank as a vendor, is that after you get your account activated (US $49.95 activation fee for ClickBank DIY), you can sell multiple products - up to 500 different products - using a single ClickBank account. Additionally, you can benefit from traffic provided by ClickBank affiliates, by offering them a commission for each sale - and ClickBank deals with all the hassle of tracking and paying affiliates. However, ClickBank has one limitation - normally you only get 1 single landing page for all your products and affiliates - although fortunately, there are ways around it.

First of all, before telling you the solution, let me explain why this is an issue:

  • Imagine for example, you are selling several different eBooks from your ClickBank account. For example, you might specialize in writing books about home improvement, so you might have written books about bathrooms, kitchens, decorating, landscape gardening etc., Now, the best way for affiliates to promote these eBooks is to write reviews and articles on each topic - and try to drive sales of the corresponding eBook. However, since ClickBank normally only allows one landing page for your entire account, every visitor would instead be sent to the front page of your store, and must then find their own way to the appropriate eBook - of course many visitors will get lost, get distracted, lose interest, etc., - resulting in much poorer sales than could otherwise have been the case.
  • It gets even worse if the products you want to sell are not closely related. There is no reason why you might not to sell, for example, home improvement eBooks, and also eBooks about fitness, and also perhaps eBooks about pet care. The problem however is that if affiliates can not directly promote specific eBooks in your catalog, and must instead link to the front page of a general store, it is virtually impossible for them to promote your products effectively.
  • Finally, there are also situations where one product can appeal to multiple audiences, and you would like to have sales letters (pitch pages) suitable for each audience. For example, imagine you have written a book about eating a healthy diet. In that case, you would probably want to use a different sales letter, depending on whether the reader is a young woman, a new mother, a middle-aged man, etc. And in this event, if you would like your affiliates to be able to link to the best sales letter for them - the affiliate who owns a parenting forum, can link to the new mother’s version of the sales letter, and the affiliate who owns a site about Twilight, might like to the young woman’s version of the sales letter, etc.

So what is the solution to this problem?

One option is to open another ClickBank vendor account for each product that you want to sell. The problem with this, is that each account has a separate activation fee, you will find you get paid less frequently (because it is harder to hit minimums and customer distribution requirements), may end-up paying more in operating fees to ClickBank (for example check issuing fees, and dormant account fees if one of your products is selling slowly), and the whole thing is a lot harder to manage.

The alternative solution that our company has developed is called CBMultiLink. It lets you offer multiple landing pages to your affiliates, but using a single ClickBank account - saving you hassle and money.

As well as this CBMultiLink also provides a free link generator and link cloaking to your affiliates, helps you increase your account’s ClickBank gravity (which helps you recruit more affiliates and get more sales), and is dead easy to set up.

Here’s a video explaining CBMultiLink in more detail:

Why you need to secure your ClickBank Thank You Page

Category: Internet Marketing, Webmasters/Web Design, ClickBank — Answers 2000 @ 4:58 pm

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank vendor and affiliate. We may earn a commission if you buy one of our products, or one of the third party products/services mentioned in the article, including if you join ClickBank as a vendor.

My previous article ClickBank Thank You Page Protection Made Easy prompted a number of questions - what is a ClickBank Thank You page, and why do you need to protect it?

So, in this article, I’ll try and address that, and explain from the beginning… (note: a slightly different, shorter and less detailed version of this article has also been posted to EzineArticles under my name, Sunil Tanna).

Okay, first question: What is ClickBank?

Basically ClickBank is a retailer of digital products delivered via the Internet, for example eBooks and software, delivered to customers a download. You have two main options for joining ClickBank:

  1. Firstly, you can join ClickBank as an affiliate. Joining as an affiliate allows you to help sell other people’s products (by linking to them) and earn a commission.
  2. Alternatively, you can join ClickBank as a vendor. As a vendor, you can still earn affiliate commissions, but in addition, you can list your own digital products for sale.

Traditionally these were the only two options in ClickBank, but in early 2013, ClickBank added two sub-options within each category:

  • The Affiliate option was split into “ClickBank for Affiliates” (the same as ClickBank’s traditional system and free to join), and ClickBank Audience Builder, which for a monthly fee added a web hosting service and an autoresponder.
  • The Vendor option was split into “ClickBank DIY” (the same as ClickBank’s traditional system and based around running your own website), and ClickBank Powered, in which ClickBank hosts the sales site for you in return for a monthly fee.

I can’t really say how many people are using Powered by ClickBank - we are using ClickBank DIY ourselves, and so is every other vendor site that I have so far seen… so the rest of this article is about ClickBank DIY:

Anyway, if you are a ClickBank DIY vendor selling a product through ClickBank’s system, one of the issues that you should carefully think about is thank you page security. The reason for this, is that if you do not, others may take advantage of weaknesses in your security to download or share your product without authorization – which will cut into your sales and profits.

Some people say that you should not worry about piracy, since pirates would never buy your product anyway. My own personal experience and opinion differs however. I believe that there are of course some hardcore pirates who would never pay (and correspondingly there are many honest people who will always for a legitimate copy of product), but I also believe that there are many people in the middle – people who will pirate if piracy is convenient and easy, but who would pay if that is a better alternative.

Basically the way that ClickBank’s vendor system (after ClickBank’s recent changes, this is now known as “ClickBank DIY”) works is quite simple:

  1. The prospective customer visits a “Pitch Page” on your website that describes your product.
  2. When they are ready to buy, the customer clicks the payment link on the pitch page.
  3. The customer is then directed to ClickBank’s secure order form (ClickBank acts as the retailer for the product)
  4. After the customer pays through the secure order form, they are then sent back to a page on your website, known as your “Thank You Page”, where you can thank the customer for purchasing the product, and offer them instructions for downloading.

The beauty of this system is that it is very easy to set up and get started – even relatively inexperienced webmasters can set up a product sales site with just a few hours work. However, the weakness of following the simple and naive approach to setting up in this way is that the Thank You Page URL (used in step 4) is basically the same for everybody. This means the URL of the Thank You page can be shared without your permission!

You might find the Thank You URL getting emailed around between friends wanting to download your product, posted on black hat forums, and even getting indexed by search engines. In the latter case, people finding your site in a search engine, might even end-up going to your Thank You page and downloading your product without even realizing that they were supposed to pay! ClickBank suggests adding noindex metatag to the Thank You page which may help a bit in the case of those search engines which pay attention to metatags (not all of them), but you need to do quite a bit more if you want to stop the other kinds of sharing.

There is a solution: to use a script on your server which generates a unique Thank You Page for each customer. The purpose of this is that access to that Thank You Page is limited – so that after the customer has finished using it, that particular Thank You Page can’t be used again and again by other people to access the same product(s) without permission.

There are quite a few scripts on the market you could use for this purpose, including DLGuard, EasyClickGuard, Linklok for ClickBank, as well as our own (new) CB Thank You Page Protector.

Of course, it’s up to you which script you choose but I’m going to urge you to seriously consider CB Thank You Page Protector for a few reasons:

  1. We are cheaper than our competitors
  2. We believe that we are better than our competitors

Firstly, and for a lot of people the most important reason why we are better is that CB Thank You Page Protector is incredibly easy to setup. Use your web host’s control panel to make a new email address/mailbox on your site, upload our script files, and then follow the instructions. We even tell you how to set up your ClickBank account! It is really is that easy - watch the video and see yourself! Unlike our competitors, you don’t need to mess around with text files, creating databases, etc., etc.,

Secondly, we don’t just protect your thank you pages, but also protect the downloadable files (ZIP files, EXE files, PDF files, etc.) linked from your Thank You Page. This is so people can’t bypass the Thank You page and link directly to the downloads on your server.

All of this is (of course) completely transparent to your legitimate customers – we fully understand that a security solution that causes them difficulty is the last thing that you want!

In fact, we’ve gone even further: We’ve created a Thank You Page solution, which actually enhances your customer’s experience, and can even help you reduce refunds and charge-backs:

  1. It will let you, the vendor, to design your Thank You Page to look exactly how you want it – so that you can offer your customers the best experience possible (rather than making you use only pre-made templates, etc.).
  2. It will allow you to generate a personalized Thank You Page for each of your customers containing their information – such as their name, the time they purchased, their receipt number, etc.
  3. It will allow you to set up automatic Thank You emails to your customers – again written by you, in your own words, but personalized for each customer. You can use these emails to thank the customer for their purchase, tell them about your other offerings and products, give them your contact details in case of problems, and remind them of their receipt number and how the charge will show on their billing statement. These kinds of simple enhancement to communication can have wonderful effects in terms of improving relationships with your customers and helping to reduce refunds and charge-backs (many customers simply forget what they purchased for example – so a reminder of this type can help).

In summary, taking care of your ClickBank Thank You Pages can make quite a big difference to your ClickBank business selling eBooks or software. Improving security on your Thank You Pages and downloads, can reduce piracy, and increase sales. Moreover, taking care of your legitimate customers, by offering personalized Thank You Pages and thank you email messages, can help reduce refunds and charge-backs, and help you to build relationships with your customers allowing you to sell more of your other products. For this reason, I’d strongly urge you to take a look at CB Thank You Page Protector, I think you will find it more than worth the modest investment required to use it.
