I believe I got my first paycheck from ClickBank back in the year 2000 – that was 15 years ago! Time flies when you’re having fun with affiliate marketing! That also shows that not only have I been in the affiliate marketing industry for a long time, but so has ClickBank. I’ve seen many networks come and go over the years, so when you see one that’s been around for that long, you can trust them that you’ll get paid. ClickBank pays out every two weeks, unless you do huge volumes, then you can get paid weekly via direct deposit.
I picked up one of ClickBank’s World Tour 2015 t-shirts at the Affiliate Summit East exhibit hall in New York City last month. Their tour cities are listed on the back of the shirt. I wish I could travel along for the tour, as many of those cities/countries are on my bucket list!
ClickBank has over 10,000 digital products for affiliate to promote. Digital allows the consumer to get their purchases right away, and affiliates don’t have to wait for products to ship to get commissions.
Here is a list of the products sold through ClickBank that I currently recommend (and yes, they are my affiliate links).
- Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook – I have personally read Rosalind’s book and recommend it on my Affiliate Marketing 101 page for newbies to affiliate marketing. I even learned some things as a veteran affiliate marketer. I’ve met Rosalind in person, and she is the real deal and genuinely great gal! Rosalind even has a blogging course available, Affiliate Blogger Pro, that teaches affiliate marketing and blogging in a fun and easy way.
- Elite Mystery Shopper – I would never recommend that someone pay a place to get a job, but this is a great resource that lists over 175 companies that hires mystery shoppers. Plus they offer tips, benefits and bonuses, so I believe this is worth the $29.95. In fact, this has inspired me to write a blog post about how I make extra money doing mystery shopping with just a couple of mystery shopping companies (stay tuned).
- Affilinker WordPress Plug-in – This plug-in for WordPress automatically converts keywords (of your choice) into your affiliate links throughout your blog to make money on old content that receives traffic. I found several other plug-ins available that intrigued me as well, so that may provoke yet another blog post (I wish there was more time in a day to write all of my blog post ideas)!
Thanks ClickBank for the free t-shirt!
