ClickBank Automatic Currency Conversion Feature!
If you use ClickBank to sell any of your products, then
you need to read this…
Just recently ClickBank implemented an automatic currency
conversion feature on their payments page.
For example, if your product costs USD$67 and someone in
Australia clicked on the purchase button, the price they
would see on the payment page would be AUD$98.67 (at time
Although USD$67 and AUD$98.67 are the same amounts, it
would appear more expensive to your potential customer and
it may exceed your customers psychological price point, and
this may impact on your sales conversions.
This was raised at the Clickbank Success Forum and
thankfully they have responded to these concerns. You now
have a choice to use the automatic currency conversion or
If you’d like to disable the automatic conversion feature,
you can contact Clickbank via their Publisher Contact Form
and request that this automatic conversion feature be
disabled in your account.
You can still offer prices in different currencies by
creating separate product links in your ClickBank account
for each separate currency.

Promoting Tangible Products Can Increase Profits!
At first glance it would appear that as an affiliate you
cannot make as much money promoting tangible products as
your could promoting digital products. This is a common
The mistake comes from looking at the commission
percentages, instead of the actual profit numbers.
If for example you find a digital golf product which is
paying 50% commissions, that looks much better to you then
the tangible golf product which is only paying 10%
The key is not in the commission rates though. You need to
instead look more closely at the overall numbers.
If the digital product you’ve selected sells for $47, and
you’re being paid 50%, then you will earn $23.50 for each
The tangible product on the other hand might sell for
$350. So even if you’re only earning 10% commission you
will get $35 per sale. That’s more than $10 higher than
you’ll get from the digital product.
Now, many affiliates mistakenly assume that no one will
spend $350 for a product online. If you stop and think
about this for a minute you will realize that is simply
CommerceHub, a dropship fulfillment company had over $4.5
billion in annual sales in 2007. Now this this is just ONE
company. Just imagine the annual sales of ALL dropshipping?
Thank about it. Have you ever personally done your
Christmas shopping online?
Have you ever bought home improvement products? Have you
ever purchased an item on eBay? Have you ever purchased an
item from Amazon?
Even if you personally have not, this is actually how most
people do their shopping online.
If an avid golfer has his heart set on a certain type of
golf clubs, there is an extremely good chance they will
spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars buying those
I have personally purchased thousands of dollars worth of
camera equipment online. And it’s not uncommon for me to
spend a couple of hundred dollars at a time just on books
The point is, people buy stuff online constantly. And it’s
not unusual for them to spend a heck of a lot of money
As an affiliate marketer, have access to thousands of in
demand products available for sale online.
Even if those products are only paying you 10 or 15%
commission, you can make a good affiliate income because
physical products have a higher perceived value and
customers will spend much more money for them.
And more often than not they will not simply buy just one
thing. Once they find a product they want to buy, they will
often buy accessories and related items while they are
As an affiliate, you can earn commissions on the entire
sale… and this really adds up.
Now promoting tangible products as an affiliate is very
simple to do. The concept is actually the same as if you
are promoting digital products.
You identify a specific market, figure out what that
market is looking to buy, and then get your own affiliate
links in front of that market.
In the next few lessons I’m going to go show you a
complete step-by-step process that will help you to begin
generating an online income by promoting tangible products.

Traffic Basics – The Importance of Search Engines!
In the last lesson we discussed what search engine
optimization is and how search engines work. In this lesson
we are going to go over the importance of search engines to
The search engines can play a very important role in the
success of your business. They can also provide you with
unlimited amounts of free visitor traffic.
Recent studies have shown that the average customer will
go to the search engine and do a search before deciding
whether or not they want to make a purchase.
When they perform that search the search engine will sift
through the millions of pages it has indexed about and
present them with ones that match their requests. The
matches are ranked so that the most relevant sites are
It is also good to keep in mind that your prospective
customer will probably only look at the first page of
listings in the search results.
So it does matter where your website appears in the search
engine ranking. Statistics show that most people use one of
the top 3 search engines and these search engines attract
more visitors to websites than anything else.
When your business is competing with hundreds, if not
thousands, of other businesses for the top spot it makes it
easy to understand why search engines are so important to
It is the keywords and phrases that you choose that play
the most important role when it comes to SEO for the online
or offline advertising of your website via the search
As I mentioned earlier, when customers want to find a
website for information or to buy a product or service,
they find what they are looking for in one of the
1. They find a relevant website through a keyword search
via a search engine, such as Google, Yahoo or MSN.
2. They find a site by clicking on a link from another
website or a page that relates to the topic in which they
3. They find a site by hearing about it from a friend or
reading about it in an article.
Thus it’s obvious the most popular way to find a site is
by the search engines, which represents more than 90% of
In other words, only 10% of the people looking for a
website will use methods other than search engines.
Now I hope you understand how important the search engines
can be to the success of your business and why you should
learn and use a variety of SEO techniques to get your
business website to rank well in the popular search engines.
Make sure you look for your next lesson where we will be
talking about the importance of keyword density.
