ClickBank is one of the leading affiliate networks known to man. It houses over twenty thousand digital products in over two hundred categories.

Why ClickBank?

If you want to dip your toe into affiliate marketing, you have probably heard about ClickBank. There are a bunch of articles and YouTube videos showing marketers who claim to have made millions of dollars on the platform.  And you are probably wondering if it is for real.

Here is the truth: CLICKBANK IS REAL.

Before you even start wondering why you should monetize with ClickBank, let’s quickly look at some of these numbers:

ClickBank In numbers

  • 87th largest internet retailer in north America
  • 276 categories and over 21562 products listing

Those figures should tell you something, – People are actually doing business here.

As an affiliate, it proved beyond doubts that money can be made through the ClickBank Affiliate Program.

One sexy thing about ClickBank, if you ask me, is the commission rate in some of their listed products.

Unlike other affiliate programs, ClickBank vendors can pay their affiliates up to 75% commission on each sale. Is it similar to what we saw on Whereas other affiliate programs like Amazon Associates and Commission Junction will only pay you little.

Perhaps, that is why ClickBank is popular among affiliate marketers. Moreover, ClickBank Affiliate application process I super easy.

You won’t have to undergo some review process. And again, you will be able to promote any product without waiting for vendor’s approval.

Just choose a product, drive traffic to it and make money.

Understanding ClickBank Metrics

While you click around, you may face some metrics and statistics on your Newly Created ClickBank dashboard.

It time to get familiar with some of them.

back to menu ↑

General Stats 

Initial $/sale: This number is the average amount that an affiliate earns in commission for each sale of one of this vendor’s products, including the initial price of any upsells or order bumps that result from the first sale.

This number takes into account refunds, chargebacks, and sales tax, but does not include rebill payments. Since vendors may offer products with different prices and commissions, each affiliate will have different results, but this number gives you a general guideline.

Avg Rebill Total: This number shows the average amount an affiliate makes in commission on all of the rebilled sales of a recurring product, not including the initial sale. 

This number is only shown if the vendor offers recurring billing products (that is, products such as memberships and subscriptions that regularly bill customers over time).

Avg $/sale: This is the average amount that an affiliate earns in commission for each sale of one of this vendor’s products, including initial and rebill payments.

For vendors with rebill products, this number gives you an indication of the additional amount you can earn by promoting those products. For vendors with no rebill products, this number is the same as the initial $/sale.

Avg %/sale: This number shows the average commission rate earned for all sales of a vendor’s products, including one-time purchases, rebills, and upsell purchases.

Since vendors can offer different commission rates for different types of products or for different affiliates, this number may not exactly match the commission rate you earn on any given sale.

Avg %/rebill: This number is only shown if the vendor offers recurring billing products, and shows the average commission rate earned only on rebills. Vendors can offer different commission rates on the initial sale and the rebills.

Grav: “Grav: is short for the GRAVITY™ performance statistic. This number represents a unique calculation by ClickBank that takes into account the number of different affiliates who earned a commission by promoting this product over the past 12 weeks.

Since more recent transactions are given a higher value, this number can give you an idea of what products are “hot” at the moment, in terms of being promoted by many affiliates and making a good number of sales.

However, high gravity can also indicate that there will be a lot of competition in promoting this product.

Cat: “Cat” is short for “category.” This section provides information about the ClickBank Marketplace category and subcategory of the product.

My Stats 

Hops Generated: This number represents the total number of Hops you have generated through your promotional material.

A Hop is an instance where a potential customer has followed your HopLink (a referral tracking link generated when you promote a product) to the ClickBank Vendor’s pitch page.

For information on why your stats may indicate that you have Hops, but you have not made any sales, click HERE to check out a helpful article. 

Earnings Per Hop: This value represents your total earnings divided by the number of hops that you’ve generated.

Refund Rate: This value represents the percentage of customers you’ve referred who have received a refund.

Chargeback Rate: This value represents the percentage of customers you’ve referred who have charged back their orders.

Initial Sales: This is the dollar value amount that you have earned from initial sales of recurring products and from sales of standalone products.

Rebill Sales:
This is the dollar value you have earned from rebills of recurring products.

Upsells: This is the dollar amount you’ve earned from upselling products.

How to find products to promote

Because ClickBank is very popular among vendors and affiliates, you should expect to see some crappy over-hyped information products.

Sometimes, filtering out the bad ones requires extra planning. Just like finding a Niche for you Blog.

First, you need to climb down the ClickBank category page to find one that is closely related to your Niche, and that will also interest your target audience.

Click On “Affiliate Marketplace” on the menu and choose your category.

Next, you will see a list of products displayed. You can sort the category page by Popularity, Ave $/sale, initial $/sale, Gravity etc.

By default, the result will be sorted by popularity, i.e. The most sold product. But that’s not what you need at this time. Two crucial metrics to consider are Gravity and Ave $/sale.

I personally recommend promoting products with a moderate gravity count. If you are a first timer, be sure to opt for products with gravity ranging from 51 and above.

The higher the better.

For those of you who do not know what Gravity is, ClickBank gravity is the matrix that indicates the estimated number of affiliates who made a sale promoting a product in the last 12 weeks. For each affiliate who made a sale, the product is given a number from 0.1 and 1, depending on when the sales occurred.

The second matrix you should pay close attention to is the Avg $/sale.This is the amount you will be paid each time you sell a product.

for example, i found this product on ClickBank:

clickbank gravity mkt

It has a good gravity score of 178, which means there are affiliates who actually promote this product. On the other hand, the avg $/sale is 35.88 – That is the commission i will take if i promote this offer!

As you can see, with a gravity score of 178, and avg $/sale of 35.88, this offer is a good money maker.

You don’t have to dive in yet.

Go a little bit deeper to find out more about the product.

Remember i said earlier, there are a lot of crapy and over-hyped information product on ClickBank. You cannot sit down there and assume a product is authentic.

Click-through the product page and find out what others think about the product.

for example, you dont have to pick a product that has a lot negative reviews, or one that has a high return rate.

You can only find out when you click-through the product page.
