"Refresh" Your Chances Of Collecting That ClickBank Commission ...

ClickBank has long been considered a simple, cost effective way to
promote digital products Online.

Would be merchants are charged a one time, relatively small start up fee,
which will enable them to use ClickBank' secure payment processing
services to accept Online payment (fee per transaction).
What makes ClickBank even more popular is their affiliate network,
which allows merchants to promote their wares by establishing
an affiliate program, listed free in the ClickBank MarketPlace.
The merchant sets the commission rate, and has the ability to build an
affiliate "army" to help promote their digital product/service.
From that point on, ClickBank takes care of everything.
Payment processing, affiliate commission payment, stats, etc.

But there is one major, easily seen downside to affiliate promotions.
ClickBank uses what is known as "hoplinks" as the affiliate commission
tracking method.

Here is an example:
< http://hop.clickbank.net/?xxxxx.im4newbies >

The section of the affiliate "hoplink" containing the x's is replaced by the
affiliate's ID. The text that follows (after the period ...) is the
merchant ID.

The problem occurs when promoting this URL, as is.

Anyone with a ClickBank affiliate ID has the ability to replace the
advertiser's ID with their own, even if they are making the purchase
themselves, and take the commission.

The advertiser, that went through the pains of promoting the URL in the
first place, gets nothing.

This META REFRESH tip will help, by making the ClickBank association
less


obvious.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You must be able to upload files to your site's server.

Copy and paste the following code into an HTML editor and save it to your
web server as whateveryoulike.html:

IMPORTANT!
In order for the following code to work, replace the "(" with "<", and the
")" with ">" ...)

(HEAD)(TITLE)Your Affiliate Program Title(/TITLE)
(META http-equiv="refresh" content="0;
url=http://www.YouraffiliateprogramsURL")
(/HEAD)(BODYBGCOLOR="#FFFFFF")(/BODY)(/HTML)

After you save this as whateveryoulike.html, and upload the file to your
server, you will be able to link to the program with this URL:
http://www.Yourdomain.com/whateveryoulike.html

This will help raise your campaign's reliability a notch above the other
affiliates using the traditional methods (and it looks a lot more
professional,
to boot ..;).

Another benefit to using this technique is the ability to track your ads.
You can save your page as whateveryoulike1.html, whateveryoulike2.html,
etc., giving each campaign a different promotion code, and enabling you to
find out which one is drawing the best responses.

This method will not prevent your commissions from being "stolen", but it
should definitely help.
