    So I've seen some god awful sales pages for CB products. In fact I have a personal belief that 99% of CB sales pages suck ass. If its not a shitty in terms of content, its shitty in terms of format. If its not shitty in terms of format its shitty in terms of content. You just cant win.

    In fact, I would bet my entire IM career that Im losing 90% of my leads due to these absolutley terrible sale pages.

    It really pisses me off. You spend so much effort getting people interested in a solution then these fuck ups go and blow the whole thing with their hard sell sales pages that offer completely unlikely results that look like they've been drafted by the same idiots who are buying the fucking products. CHRIST.

    I DO HAVE A QUESTION. THIS THREAD ISNT JUST A RANT
    .

    Is there any way of designing your own sales pages for CB products so you dont have to link to their shit in order to convert?

    Thanks dudes.

    Shape.

    Hello,
    The sales pages may be bad, but they took ACTION and made a product and a sales page.
    If you find a killer product just contact the author and say that I would like to work with you to make a better sales page.
    Then ask for a piece of the profits as well.
    A win win situation for all.

    I agree and think the same thing everytime I hoplink one.


    Makes me wonder why I bother making decent referral sites when these jackasses make bank on some f'd shit my kids could make with powerpoint.

    If you think your presell can perform better than the sales page, direct link to the merchants order page.

    Product number can be found by usually hovering the mouse over the buy now button. Or you can purchase the product either way.

    I'm pretty sure direct linking to the order page can get you banned by CB.

    I believe you can work around it by having the merchant create a simple landing page with a single "buy now" button on it.

    That way the buyer sees all the links with all the mandatory CB disclaimers/return polices/etc, plus your cookie gets dropped as well.

    Damn, I'm not at my regular computer. I had found a thread somewhere here that went into detail on how to bypass the sales pages and link directly to the clickbank checkout page.

    Direct linking to the payment page WILL get you banned. CB want their terms and conditions available to the buyer. It's that simple.

    If you think the sales page is shit then contact the vendor. Tell him you want to set up a sales page of your own for his product and get his permission. Include the relevant 'health warnings', guarantee info, etc. and he might agree. However, his own page may well contain list opt-in for his future use, so he may not. It's his choice.

    The other thing to think about is that a) if the sales page is crap the product may well be crap too and b) if you want to sell the product because it's got high CB gravity then his sales page is working quite well. You may not like it - but the buyers do!

    I'm not sure if I understand what you mean by "is it always that correct"...

    You don't have to go with high gravity product, but the ones with higher gravity are selling more often and by more unique affiliates.

    It doesn't have to be super high. Anything above 100, or even a bit lower, would be where I would start.

    Ah, I see what you mean.

    Yeah, that's true, but the bottom line is that more gravity = more affiliates making more sales more often.

    It's for sure that lower gravity products convert, but I'd stay away from anything super low.

    No need to make things any harder than they already will be, right?

    well of course you can make your own. Make some nice review-pages and link to product(s).

    Also..you might be surprised how the SH!TTIEST sales page actually belong to very well converting products. Design matters, yes, but also a sh!tty looking page can have VERY convincing copy/wording.

    I've found the same thing. It sucks when you send visitors to a sales page only to have them opt in to the merchant's list.

    Also, if that visitor ever visits another affiliate's landing page and clicks their hoplink through to the merchant page, say goodbye to your cookie as it's only the last one that gets credit for the sale.

    I just tried to play around with this method direct linking to the merchants order page, however not all successfully can see my affiliate name at the bottom of the page. Is there any way to make sure everytime our affiliate name be there? :confused:

    Somehow you have to get the cookie dropped. If you're direct linking to the payment page, short of cookie stuffing, there may be no way to do so.

    But if they visit another affiliate's page after you've dropped the cookie you still lose.

    Make your own sales page and iframe the buy now button or something like that. You can also make your own sales page, stuff it and then direct to the buy now page.
