Garage Sale Season

Posted by: Jeff Leget, Director of Operations This past weekend, my family and I had a neighborhood garage sale. We made about $85 in 3 hours. For my family it was a moderate success. It's not that we don't have enough stuff to sell;  the problem is that times and technology have changed.

The Secret of Our Success

Posted by: Dush Ramachandran, VP of Sales and Business Development At parties and social gatherings people often ask me what I do, and I tell them I work for ClickBank. This answer is usually greeted with a puzzled look and a quizzical "Who?" But when I tell the ClickBank story, the puzzlement is often replaced…

Getting to Know ClickBank

Posted by: Jen Johannsen, VP of Operations I also had the privilege of meeting a group of ClickBank clients "live and in person" in London earlier this month.

We Take Our Responsibility Seriously

Posted by Bob King, CEO I was thinking the other day, after I wrote the post on the New York Sales Tax, about our responsibility at ClickBank.

Product Evolution – A Reflection of our Clients’ Needs

Posted by: Michael Poston, Product Manager I like thinking back to my start here at ClickBank, when we often heard comments about things we needed to address.

Self-Publishing ClickBank-Style

Posted by: Dush Ramachandran, VP of Sales and Business Development I recently attended and presented at gatherings of non-fiction writers, here in Colorado and in New York City and I have come away amazed at the incredible breadth of topics these authors cover. Ranging from travel and adventure to faith and religion, and everything in…

Thoughts on Going Global

Posted by: Bob King, CEO A few weeks ago, I was reading what I’m sure was one of several exit interviews given by Meg Whitman. Whitman recently left her job as CEO of eBay after 10 years. By the way, I think she did a fantastic job in leading eBay and creating value for a…

This is Actually Fun

Posted by: Monty Sooter, CTO As a kid my Dad was always shocked when he would go into the garage and see the latest motor I had taken apart. He was even more shocked when I got it back together and it worked. He is a great father, but a terrible mechanic. So I got…
