    Hello everybody,

    I've a question about promoting Clickbank products. When you decide to promote a product, you get a link and a <a href: ..../> link which you can paste in your website's code. Is it possible to shorten the link you get with for example Google's URL shortener and write reviews about the product on different forums, reffering to your affiliate link? So you don't have to own a website to promote the products on.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sure, that would work.
    As long as your affiliate ID is kept within the shortend link, you can shorten every url.
    Better check at the bottom of the check out page if your aff id is still there after shortening.

    Yes..! It's Possible, But Google's URL shortener disable this type of Aff Links.

    And Now a days, this of promotions considered as SPAM.

    Yes. It's a simple and fast way to promote affiliate links without having a website of your own.
    The issue is bit.ly & goo.gl blacklist clickbank links so you will have to find other url shorteners.
    Trick I've done is post the link on twitter, and copy the link address -- they give you a "t.co" shortlink. There's also mcaf.ee and dozens of others. So long as you stay away from sketchy looking domains like .ru and things that insert ads like adfly you'll be fine.

    Okay, thanks everybody for your answers!^

    Now the most important question: is this strategy going to work, or is it not going to result in (m)any sales?

    Nothing is guaranteed. Two people can do the same thing and have different results.
    But here was big thread shared few years ago outlining almost the same thing. A lot of people had success with it.

    It completely depends on the product quality and the mindset of the visitors. It won't convert if you're promoting delicious non-veg recipe handbook to a vegetarian visitor.

    Literally no one can answer that question. The same goes with alot of questions when it comes to "converting". You have to TEST it. Youve done the research, you have a method, now go out there, TEST TEST TEST and then YOU come and tell us if it worked or not. Good Luck.
