The Drawbacks to Products on ClickBank

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 146

In order to be a successful affiliate for a product you have to have a good support system in place for the product in case there are concerns. This is not something you have control over when promoting ClickBank Products. You also want to know the product you are promoting is beneficial, and with ClickBank you do not always get to see the product, just the sales page. The final drawback is that you have to write all of your own marketing material for the products.

At the mercy of the sellers support system

One of the major drawbacks with ClickBank is that you have no control over how well the seller actually delivers and supports the product. ClickBank is very thorough in ensuring the approval process is running correctly, but they have no say about the support system after the purchase. I personally pride myself on delivering some of the most beneficial and efficient support in the business, and my list has come to expect that from me. Since I do not have control over the support by the sellers on ClickBank I have to be very selective on which products I recommend to my followers.

Cant always preview the product before promoting it

Along the same lines as above, I also pride myself in delivering the very best products out there. They are clean, polished and over deliver on the promises I make. The drawback with ClickBank is that often all you get to see about the product you are marketing is the sales page for the product and not the end product itself. I want to know if I am recommending something it is as good as it gets. I have found a way around this is to ask a seller if you can get a free trial or a preview of the product to ensure it is at the high quality standards I demand. Sometimes they will support me and sometimes they wont, but it has never hurt to ask.

Have to create your own Marketing

The final drawback with ClickBank products is that you have to create you own marketing for the products. You have to write you own email copy, your own social media copy, etc. ClickBank does not have a system built in to support a affiliate center, they just give you the hoplink and that is all. Whenever I do any product launch that will have an affiliate program associated with it I always have an affiliate center associated with it to make success as easy as possible for my affiliates. ClickBank does not have this option and there for as an affiliate I have to do more work.

Although there are these three drawbacks in relation to ClickBank, I still highly recommend using them. They are a very reliable company and have a library of possible products to promote beyond what anyone else out there offers. So find ways to work around the drawback and make ClickBank an integral part of your affiliate marketing plan.
