    I have a clickbank ebook for sale online. I noticed I had my first affiliate sale. How can I find the page that they put up on my product? I have their clickbank ID, that's about it. Clickbank doesn't supply such information, does it?

    Nah, and for good reason. After all, would you want the publisher finding out how you were promoting his/her product? Why would they need you after that?

    What you can do is perform some Google-fu searching around for your product to see if you can find any Squidoo lenses, Hubs, etc out there ranking for keywords related to your product or even your product name. Also take a look at the Adwords and other PPC engine ads in your niche.

    Hmmm....I could always ask the person who bought my book. I'm doing some "market research" :)

    Market research, huh? Sounds to me like you're trying to push the burden of testing your sales copy onto your potential affiliates.

    I'm not hating on you for that or anything, but you should be aware that you'll never land the "big fish" affiliates unless you're actively promoting your product AFTER you've dialed in your sales copy conversion and provided them with some really good tools (banners, articles, keywords, etc).

    The "big fish" affiliates know the game and rip your product apart within seconds of looking at it in the CB marketplace. And I speak from experience when I say that these guys are "one and done" if you fuck with them. They got to where they are by knowing what they're doing and not by flying by the seat of their pants.

    Don't take what I'm saying as being harsh, I'm just trying to impress upon you that the more you prepare before you list your product, the better off you'll be. You want market research? Look at the other products in your niche (or close to it) in the CB marketplace that are selling right and left. What are they doing that you aren't? There's your market research right there.

    The time you spend chasing your tail looking for how one affiliate sold one of your products could be much, Much, MUCH better spent looking at all the proven data that's staring you right in the face already in the CB marketplace.

    Good luck to ya.

    Geez...I'm doing much better than I thought. I'm not even interested in any big fish affiliates because I'm in a kind small niche and I own it. I was wondering who would attempt to sell my ebook because I AM in such a small niche.

    OK, just checked my analytics. I get an average of 20 lousy people a day and I'm selling 1 ebook a day for $30. Nice 'n targeted and I'm very happy. What big affiliate is going to want to pursue 20 people a day? This is all organic traffic too. Just started the adwords compaign. Maybe I can get 40 people a day! (woo hoo!)

    I'll answer my own damn question. (maybe some Jr. VPs can learn something) ;-)

    keywordspy*com has all that info, just sign up for a legit account.

    This video basically explains it:
