    I signed up for clickbank long ago but affiliate marketing was just not for me so I thought. I think I remember advertising some game for a few hours. Anyway, I log into my clickbank account today deciding to give it another try with another niche and after farting around my account I see the following:

    Can someone explain the -1$ stuff too? I vaguely remember promoting something in May for like 12 hours. How can I look to see what product I offered? I do not know the clickbank interface at all. Maybe I have a link kicking around somewhere on one of my sites. Not sure. I would live to figure this all out though

    Thanks!

    It's always a nice surprise making a sale from marketing you did months or even years ago that you thought had failed. Shows how passive IM can be. Anyway OP, if you go into the reporting tab and change the date range to max you should be able to see the product you sold.

    I checked. It just states the affiliate account I advertised. I am not too worried about it. It is only 25$ or so. Here is a question I have. I want to promote a product with super low conversions but super high payout (75%) and the amount is 3 figures with a high rebill rate. I have the targeted traffic to promote this low converting offer. With that, I saw their landing page and I wanted to copy-pasta their header banner and create a banner on my site promoting it (to make it easier)

    Is this allowed? Normally I read the terms of service but I am still trying to figure out the interface of clickbank. It would just save me time as I am setting up the space for the ad now

    Hi
    as for the -1$ is dormant fee wich will scale to 5$ if you dont make a sale within the next 2 paying CB periods.
    To avoid that and stop be charged these fees you have to buy something (very low ticket like 3$) through your affiliate link.

    I don't know if it's allowed or not but I have been using a site for almost 2 years where I clear around 500 bucks a week doing this method, I say go for it. Also it is imperative that you find out which product that was you sold because you can duplicate it now that you know it works.

    What I was offering was not really fine targeted for one of my money sites. The money is not a big deal. It is only 20+$. They can take it all for all I care. What this showed me is that there is high potential for affiliate marketing. If I can make 20+ just messing around imagine what I can come up with if I put as much effort into this as I do adsense.

    Thanks for letting me know about the header. Looking at a few products to offer. Might rotate them with a unique identifier and see where it goes.

    Does clickbank have live impression stats?

    I have things figured out. Thanks for the replies. I will test out an offer and if it is worth it ill post the results. They really need to work on their interface though. Took me awhile to figure out how it all works. Wish me luck. CHEERS!

    It is much easier to promote something once you know for sure people actually want it and the conversions will look a lot better too. It may be just me but I feel like I'm wasting my time unless I know I'm promoting a proven seller.

    you can use all the tools and materials from their site for positive promotion.they state that you should not use these materials for negative reviews or things like that. But it's always better to ask the vendor directly, and it might be possible that he has some other nice looking banners which he could share with you. So, talk to the vendor whenever you get time.
    Man, you're lucky to get sales without promoting :p people waste too much money and work very hard to get a few sale. u're a luck lucky -------- ;) :) you know what i mean :p

    I have the traffic. I have multiple niche sites that gets millions of visits a month each. hundreds of thousands a day. One specific site I found a perfect offer. Clickbanks hops are not in real time so creating a redirect script to track them myself. A bonus was the vendor had multiple banners already so I used one. Hopefully I make comparable to adsense (I replaced the banner)

    Playing catch up on all the threads in this section as I never used to bother.

    Something similar happened to me 4 weeks ago, except I only took a break from Internet Marketing for a few of weeks to learn more about it. When I logged back in, I had apparently made 2 sales within 4 minutes for $56 total. The sales came from an old Blogger website I used for the first products I tried to promote, so it was a nice surprise for me!
