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.

Spam-Free Email Forms: Feedback Form 5.00 released

Category: Company Announcements, Webmasters/Web Design — Answers 2000 @ 5:23 pm

Many websites need to collect information from visitors, and often the best way to do this is through forms. The advantage of forms, other than simply publishing an email contact address, is that it allows you to tell visitors exactly what information you need from them - and get them to give you that information.

Answers 2000 is Email Feedback Form Script is a powerful solution to this requirement. Some of its features include:

  • It can process any type of form - forms can incorporate any fields and types of fields that you like
  • Powerful and flexible validation options - for example: it can make sure an email address has been correctly entered in a required field before the form is submitted, or another field must contain a ZIP code, or another field must contain a number within a certain range, and so on.
  • A single script can process an un unlimited number of different forms
  • Can automatically capture the user’s IP address (this can be useful for legal purposes, as well as being handy if you find that you wish to block a particular user who is abusing your form).

As well as all these features, Email Feedback Form Script has always incorporated two additional features that help tackle the problem of spam:

  1. Unlike many traditional formmail scripts, Email Feedback Form Script can not be subverted by spammers to email third parties.
  2. Unlike many traditional formmail scripts, Email Feedback Form Script does not need to reveal your email address - thus preventing it being added to spam email lists.

Of course, spammers are a devious lot: Another tactic that they are increasingly using is to fill out feedback forms on websites (using automated software) with their junk, and then submit them. If you get these types of messages, you can of course always simply delete them from your inbox, but this soon gets tiresome and annoying, plus it’s time-consuming too, especially if you receive numerous junk submissions every day.

Answers 2000 is pleased to announce the release of Email Feedback Form 5.00 which includes a powerful new anti-spam feature, that can drastically cut down on the number of such spam form submissions received. This new version of the software incorporates a special “honey pot fields” feature, that allows you to automatically direct almost all junk submissions straight to the trash, while still allowing legitimate human-made submissions to be received as normal. What’s more, this feature works without using a captcha - which many people find annoying, and which can be
troublesome for visually-impaired users.

The way the “honey pot fields” work is: you add one or more additional fields to your forms, that must be left blank, or left set to required values. These fields are hidden from legitimate human users’ eyes using CSS (so are never altered), but spammer’s software will fill-out or alter these fields, thus allowing spam submissions to be detected and automatically sent to the garbage. This process is completely transparent to your legitimate human users, yet tests show it can drastically cut down on spam submissions.

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.
