    Hi,

    I am going to be launching a new product with clickbank soon and I am planning out my marketing campaign.

    One of the big things I want is for the product to be mostly affiliate driven, as in, affiliates making most of my sales, because of this I am going to offer high commissions, lots of promotional tools and maybe even no email capture form.

    The problem is getting the site to rank well in the marketplace in order to get the affiliates, when the site launches I am going to have to do all the promotion myself to get better rankings.

    Could you guy's share some ways to quickly improve rankings in the marketplace?

    What sort of methods do you's use to get and maintain high rankings?

    Thanks a lot.

    As far as I am aware, the rankings of CB's Marketplace is based purely on sales related stats. See here: https://www.clickbank.com/info/ranking.html

    What I did before with some degree of success was:
    (Compilation of strategies used in the past - you don't have to use all together, just what fits your marketing plan.)
    1) Promote the new product with your 2nd CB account to improve the gravity.
    2) Promote the new affiliate program to your opt-in list.
    3) Announce to your current affiliates about the launch of your new product.
    4) Find fellow marketers who are interested in the new program and offer them a copy of the product in exchange for a review.
    5) If you have a 'guru' friend, you can offer him certain special priviledges. For instance, giving him sole rights to market your product for the first 2 months before opening the affiliate program to the public. (By then your rankings should be high enough to go public anyway)
    6) Post your new affiliate program in affiliate directories. Here's some:
    http://www.affiliateseeking.com
    http://www.AssociatePrograms.com
    http://www.affiliatescout.com
    http://www.affiliatefirst.com
    http://affiliatehangout.com
    http://www.100best-affiliate-programs.com
    http://www.affiliatetracking.com
    7) Post in forums such as the 1 linked to this forum:

    All the best

    Another way to grow your marketplace ranking would be to open more clickbank accounts and promote your own product as an affiliate.

    Damian,

    Are your sure Clickbank approves of that strategy? I'd make sure, because it definitely seems like something they wouldn't like.

    Yes they do allow it, in fact it was a strategy recommended by Jim Edwards a couple of years back and also again by Mike Filsaime later on.

    I have been doing it for quite sometime without any problem.
    Account A markets Account B's product and vice versa

    Cheers

    Im sure if clickbank allows you to use your own affiliate link to buy products and refer yourself for new accounts. Then they shouldn't mind someone doing this.

    Hey guy's,

    Thanks for helping out, some good tips here.

    I wonder what Clickbank's opinion is on the issue of promoting one account with another, seems a great way to boost gravity but would they take action if they found out?

    So basically it just comes down to making sales and recruiting affiliates manually, slow and steady, good enough Smile

    Thanks guy's

    Questions:
    If I were to open a new account as a publisher, am I able to use my current account as an affiliate to refer sales to my own product in the new account?
    Thanks

    I realize this is a quote from an old post...

    I asked a similar question in this forum, and was led to believe this was not a good practice. Here's the thread...

    Am I misunderstanding something? Confused

    It was not quite a similar question. It made no mention
    of promoting one account with another.

    If you don't plan to do that then I suggest
    you keep to the one account.
