Is Captain Affiliate to become a ClickBank Pirate? And what will that mean for you and your affiliate marketing efforts if I DO become a CBPirate?
ClickBank is the biggest affiliate products directory online, allowing affiliates to choose from thousands of products to promote. It is above reproach to date, and since it collects the payments and then pays the affiliates and merchants separately, is the choice for affiliate products to promote for many, many affiliates – if not most.
Yet strangely enough, I’ve done very little with ClickBank products til now, selling just a few thousand dollars’ worth each year. Or perhaps not so strangely, since most of my affiliate marketing efforts go to promoting products and services released by people I know, products and services I’ve been given access to in advance so I can be sure they’re both high-quality and relevant to you, my loyal readers and affiliate marketing students.
But it was recently pointed out to me that not teaching you about ClickBank meant I wasn’t giving you a full affiliate marketing education, in spite of this blog, our Affiliate Marketing Revealed and Affiliate Marketing Special Report web sites and the @CaptnAffiliate Twitter persona.
Granted, no one else is giving you as much free affiliate marketing training – but that’s not enough… If I don’t do all I can to educate you in making money online, I’m not living up to my goals with all this – to help create a team of super-affiliates bringing down huge affiliate commissions.
As I was planning how to best teach you to use ClickBank successfully, some friends showed me a new site they’re about to launch to make promoting ClickBank products much easier for newbie affiliate marketers, and much less time-intensive for the pros. That was all I needed to realize the time was right to start showing you the ropes, and to include using their service in that education.
Thus was the decision to launch Simple ClickBank Profits – a new site I’ll put together designed just to teach you how to market ClickBank products as an affiliate – and I guess I’ll have to become a ClickBank Pirate along the way too… Don’t misunderstand, a CBPirate isn’t a negative connotation – it’s just the newest term for a super-affiliate who’s marketing products as an affiliate through ClickBank.
So head on over now to Simple ClickBank Profits and bookmark the site – I’ll start pouring content into it tomorrow to help you get up to speed quickly with affiliate marketing using ClickBank – see you there!
