ClickBank Pirate, a new service to make affiliate marketing using ClickBank products much easier, has been announced by it’s creators, Cindy Battye of Australia and Soren Jordansen of Denmark.
Until now, affiliate marketers who wanted to properly market ClickBank products had two choices – either fight for affiliate scraps with the majority of other ClickBank affiliates, e-mailing, tweeting and blogging about the products and hoping to send enough targeted traffic to the merchant’s site to earn decent commissions.
Super-affiliates, in the top level of affiliate marketing, knew better. Top product creators are almost never great marketers, meaning the merchant’s salespages almost always leave a lot to be desired – and conversion rates of traffic-to-sales is usually fairly low as a result. So super affiliates create, or outsource the creation of powerful pre-sale materials to ‘warm customers up’ to the product before they hit the salespage.
Taking it a step further, they’ll usually commission a small report to use as an ‘ethical bribe’ – the term given to resources given away free to entice targeted prospects to opt-in to the affiliate’s e-mail list. This then gives the affiliate a number of opportunities to give the prospect more information about the product and the area of interest, positioning themselves as an expert on the subject. Of course, it also gives them that many more times to show the potential buyers the product in question, then move them along to the next related product after that.
Realising that newer, less experienced affiliate marketers wouldn’t be able to do all that themselves, ClickBank pirate is designed to take care of that – they’re creating that entire promotional back end for various ClickBank poducts their members can promote. Even better than just handling the technical end of it all, ClickBank Pirate also frees up a lot of time for the affiliates, letting them focus just on the actual marketing end of the business – which hopefully will produce higher sales and a faster start to the affiliate ommissions rolling in through ClickBank.
The CB Pirate service is set to start taking members on Tuesday (August 4th, 2009), launching at 10am EST. If you’re reading this before they open the doors to affiliates, you can get ClickBank Pirate info here. If, on the other hand, they’ve already launched by the time you see this, just go straight to the ClickBank Pirate website.
