    I was thinking how easy it would be to become publisher at CB. I've been working as an affiliate now for a while. But as time has gone by I've noticed that a lot of the products I market and easily convert, is nothing more then some hyped up sales page. The products themselves really are nothing more then free information of pdf files and software all bundled together.

    So basically the next ideal level would be to publish and market as an affiliate.
    I mean 75% as an affiliate is damn good money, and I'm not complaining at all.
    But when I think about it, I'm still giving up 25% of my earnings to some publisher who's product is 100% free and profitable. I do all the marketing and he gets to lounge around and click refresh to see just how much he earned that hour.

    So I want to know who here has, or had success as a publisher.
    Clickbank charges $40 a month to post your site in their directory.
    When you started out was it hard to get your product in the hands
    of affiliates?

    Thanks, and if you haven't had experience as a publisher that's cool, i would still like to hear your thoughts.

    Have you considered PayDotCom? They don't charge the setup fee for the first product you sell, subsequent ones are 29 bucks for an unlimited amount. They also pay you immediately via PayPal as opposed to the 60 days that ClickBank will hold your earnings. And they put you in charge of issuing refunds.

    No, I haven't really thought about them, but them paying right away and being in charged of the refunds sounds good. I was thinking that Cb has so many affiliates that I would get a few of them to market it right away.

    I am working with PDC right now as well, just published my first eBook on there a few days ago. They seem like a solid company so far. I am currently looking for ways to get some affiliates, as they still aren't near as large as CB yet.

    Anyone have any tips on getting affiliates through PDC?

    I currently use Paydotcom for two of my digital products and they have brought me a good amount of traffic and sales. I highly recommend them.

    This is my personal experience, but the affiliates in ClickBank helped my a lot.
    I didn't spend any money on advertising, but the affiliates did all the work for me :). I paid them 75% of my sales for their hard work:D.

    why don't you try this method
    1-Use paydotcom to publish ur ebook
    2- use Secret affiliate finder to find the clickbank affiliate that they are promoting your kind of ebooks ( let's say ur ebook is a about website flipping , using the SAF software you can find all the affiliates that they are promoting similar product in clickbank )
    3- contact them and make a good offer , there is no reason why they will refuse promoting you ebook ( you will find their contactes infos usinf the software)
    hope it helps
