Price: Free program to join and sell products on (they take a percentage) as well as be an affiliate for.
Overall Rating: 2 out of 10 stars. I don’t think this place has any filtration on the types of programs it allows to be marketed on it, and my experience has generally been bad with just about every program I’ve purchased that was connected through Clickbetter…
What is Clickbetter?
It’s a network where you’ll find a large majority (if not all) products being sold are off the make money online (MMO) topic. As a network, this place is NOT a scam, but the BIG problem plaguing it’s reputation is that most of the garbage programs in the MMO industry are sold on THAT particular network.
Most of the SUPER low quality products I’ve purchased that I’ve given a very low/scam rating to have been associated with Clickbetter. Here’s just some examples:
Auto Home Profits: 1 out of 10 stars. Full review.
Millionaire Biz Pro: I had an issue with my purchase, had to refund it, but it’s also part of this network.
12 Minute Payday: 1 out of 10 stars. A very nostalgic scam that one was! Full review of that.
It’s gotten to the point where if I review a product that deals with making money online, and I see it’s part of ClickBetter, I brace myself for what may likely be a scam…
There are good things about it:
1) They run a legitimate processing system, meaning they take credit card purchases, handle refunds and have decent support. I’ve had my complaints with the products on their network expedited quite quickly, meaning if you’re not happy with a program that’s part of that system, you can feel calm knowing you’ll get that refund.
2) There’s no real filtration from what I know in judging a good program from a bad one when it comes to this place, so if you’re the type of person who creates digital products relating to making money online, this may be one of the easiest places out there to get approved by.
Why would you want to get approved by them? Well because they handle all the stuff in the first section I talked about and while they take a small portion of your profits, dealing with all the headaches of customer support can be outsourced to them and in addition, affiliates will promote your program for you, provided you have a good compensation plan…
But the big, major problem is still this:
One of their biggest pros is also one of their biggest cons which is no real filtration/screening (in my experience) of the products that are on it. I feel like anyone, including scammers can just put up a product there with no issue whatsoever, get approved and make money from that.
While Clickbetter itself will be good at dealing with refunds if it comes to it, one thing I’ve learned is that many of the systems I’ve personally reviewed which associate with it have you purchase through Clickbetter initially, and once inside, they hit you with up-sells that aren’t part of the Clickbetter program and if you need a refund for those, you have to talk to another person/program. It’s a very annoying process in which usually the best solution is to just dispute any and all transactions with you credit card company…
Final Rating: Clickbetter.
2 out of 10 stars. They really need to get it together and become a lot more strict with their approval system. Much like with other network’s I’ve criticized, like JVZoo, this main issue is what gives them a bad rep. Until they fix this, I will never promote anything that is sold on Clickbetter, I’ve just come to expect the worst at this point, even though this place itself is legitimate. Their “open door” rules just made them this way…
The 5 big network that sell make money online products ranked (from worst to best):
If you’re an affiliate marketer who wants to make good money online selling actual make money programs/systems, which ones will pay the most?
Will ones will pay the least? Which ones will make your customers happy? Besides individual programs I’ve reviewed, here are 5 networks which I’ve ranked that you should consider:
No surprise there. You have a lot of choices with this network, but I’d really filter out which ones actually work before promoting anything.
#4: WSO (Warrior Special Offers):
The Warrior Forum has it’s own network where you can buy/sell products. I’ve purchased several and they generally have not been that good…
I literally just did a review of this program a few days ago. It’s on the “average” and below list when it comes to selling good quality programs and I’ve had good experiences mind you, but they also have a big issue with their “vetting” system and this has caused me big issues before…
JVZoo isn’t bad, but it’s also not exactly exceptional…
If there’s any network out there which has made incredible changes/improvements to their system since their inception, it’s Clickbank. While you can find more than just MMO products to promote there, it’s the one network where vetting is big, customer support is huge, and their demand for delivering high quality products is top notch.
I’ve physically done business with this place so I know how they operate and I do recommend them (I’m not promoting them by the way, so this recommendation is unbiased).
#1: Wealthy Affiliate.
Out of this list, Wealthy Affiliate is the in my opinion the best OVERALL. While you cannot make and sell your own product there, you can promote THEIRS. Here’s a list:
A) WA premium membership for $49/month (You get paid $20+ recurring). You do need to be a premium member though. You CAN promote this program as a free member, but then the commission rates are cut in half and you get a lot of benefits of being a member there as it is. Learn more.
B) They are a domain registrar so you can sell domains there for $1 a year recurring. I’ve been promoting that for 2 years now and I’ve hit $1,000 a year (recurring) and it’s rising everyday. It’s like an online savings account.
C) You can sell their keyword tool and earn anywhere from $8/month to $155 a year.
D) They sell an annual membership of $357 a year ($175 for you) or $299 every Black Friday which amounts to $130 for you, yearly recurring.
Personally, WA has been my #1 promotion for years and also the one which as gotten the most customer satisfaction/retention.
Those are my 5. Of course, as I said before, there’s individual programs out there, but they aren’t really networks. They have their payment processes and deal with transactions individually, but these 5 do it for you and fairly. Most typically are big ticket programs, but I never recommend those because the prices for customers are too high and often unfair.
As for these 5 networks, not all of them are great (the last 2 are really good), but at least you have these options, with each one offering more than just 1 thing to sell.
My personal experience has been that if you can find 1 program that’s good, pays well and sells well, that it’s enough to be your #1 promotion, hence why Wealthy Affiliate has become that for me. With the rest, there’s a lot of choices, and many of them are really bad, so I only concentrate on promoting what’s good to as many people as I can.
