We recommend Clickbank because we’ve been working with them for a long time. We know and trust them. I know that on Wednesday, I will get a direct deposit in my bank account in the amount indicated on my account.
There are MANY affiliate programs out there that promise the moon and deliver nothing. They don’t pay on time. They don’t pay the right amount. The products don’t convert.
This is another reason why we recommend Clickbank. There are 1000’s of products in their database and they include critical details about how well the product converts and how much money you are likely to make if you promote that product.
So let’s get to it.
Create Your Clickbank Account
The signup process is very simple but there is one thing I need to mention here.
Your “account nickname” cannot be changed once you set it. While it is your username, I don’t recommend making it the same as your other “private usernames”. Your customers will see this.
It should be related to your blog topic so that when people see it, they will recognize it.
