1. ClickBank Sales Notifications
As you may know ClickBank affiliates don't receive
notification of sales. To avoid constantly logging in to
your account to check you can use a free tool CBNotify (a
Firefox extension) which displays sales totals in the status
Author Paul Kleinmeulman is asking what extra features
people would like to see.
You can let him know here
2. Boost Your Sales
ClickBank's own testing suggests that having an image of
your product on their order form will improve conversion.
Want to have a look at it in action ?
Go to http://www.clickbankguide.com/cavs-order.htm
and click as if to purchase any of the packages
3. Reduce Those Refunds
Another new feature. Publishers can add a support contact
URL in their account which will be shown in customer
Ensuring that the customer knows how to contact you
throughout the order and delivery process and afterwards is
a fundamental theme of my book
Stop Those ClickBank Refunds !
4. A Problem For Affiliates
I've lost count of the times that an affiliate program has
stopped bringing in sales because it has been disbanded, or
switched to another affiliate system or converted to a non-
affiliate site WITHOUT the publisher bothering to contact
One way to detect this is to monitor sales activity with a
stats tool such as the ones here
Also of course you should regularly check your links.
A combination of these methods showed me a number of such
rogue cases at a page at my site which I subtitle
"The fastest and simplest way to make money with ClickBank"
It's a review of resources for using AdWords with ClickBank.
Now at the time I was reviewing a new book about AdWords -
Google Money Pro. I spent almost a solid 8 hours reading it
and concluded that it was the best and most comprehensive
book on AdWords that I'd ever seen. Now I could write a
review here and list all the reasons why but - actions speak
louder than words. I've scrapped all those other AdWords
resources and replaced them with this one book.
See section 3 "Setting up an effective AdWords campaign"
5. Good News For Affiliates
After telling you about the problem for affiliates above
here is some good news. Someone who has been described as
the World's number one affiliate has written a book
explaining his methods.
What did I think of it ?

6. A New Security Feature
Michael Green, author of Easy-Download Protector, tells me
that his latest release contains a new unique feature - a
built-in IP Abuse Alert system.
Check it out here
7. A Storefront With Pictures
I've added a new storefront, StoreStacker, to the selection at
In addition to ClickBank products StoreStacker can build an
affiliate store using products from eBay, Amazon and
others. It automatically imports product pictures,
descriptions and prices. You can add StoreStacker to your
website or blog or use it to build a new website with no
outside site builders needed. Impressive !
