Affiliate Marketing

Recently Deb and I took a vacation to Orlando to enjoy one of our favorite adult playgrounds. The catalyst for the trip was the opportunity to stay 3 nights for free at a high-end Hilton Resort. But there was only one catch. You guessed it…we had to endure a timeshare presentation.

We’ve been through those before and found them stressful situations. So much so that we swore we’d never attend another one no matter how sweet the ‘free stay’ offer was. Never say never! We’re Veterans, right? And, we’ve conquered the best temptations that the $1,997 Internet marketers had to offer. We could do this.

So, off we went to Orlando….and  Hilton Grand Vacations. We decided to get the presentation out of the way the first day, so we could use the remaining time to relax. As it turned out, it was gray and rainy that first day. We actually had such a great time in that 2 hour scheduled presentation, that it turned into 5 hours. By the time we were done, all the employees except our 3rd ‘Closer’ had left for the day. But we were having a blast…picking up lots of lessons to share with you for promoting any product or service.

Have you ever noticed that some of the best resources on the Internet are, in themselves, cumbersome to use?
-Take, for example, uploading videos onto Amazon S3
-Or finding product to sell from the Affiliate database, Clickbank.

Clickbank Relief Is On The way!

Recently, as I was researching tools to enhance our online Affiliate marketing, I came across a great free tool to make searches for Clickbank products easier. It’s more powerful than the paid program we have been using.

If you’ve ever searched for products to sell on Clickbank, then you know the process is cumbersome. It’s a great resource of data…but accessing it has been the problem.

But what if you had a tool that lets you…

  • Search for Clickbank products by category or selective criteria (Gravity, Comm. Rate, Recurring Billings, etc.)
  • Access performance stats (including refund rate) for every product
  • See products that are improving…or declining…in performance
  • Set up a “Watch List” of products of interest
  • And more


Our free “Bronze” membership site,, is full of free and inexpensive tutorials showing you how to quickly implement many of the technology pieces you need for your business.

I’ve just uploaded the link to access this Clickbank tool, as well as an 8 1/2 minute video on how to use it into the free Bronze membership level. Just click on the “What’s New” icon for your Clickbank Online Affiliate Marketing Time Saver
