ClickBank Turns 20!

ClickBank Turns 20!

Brett Chesney General

Let’s take a quick walk down memory lane…

It all started in a garage in San Diego. Three masterminds were eager to create the best digital marketing space before anyone else had a glimmer of such an innovative idea. Dial up was screeching as you opened the internet, which was still called the World Wide Web. Coca-Cola was 89 cents. MP3s were created for the first time. Madonna, N*SYNC and Spice Girls dominated pop culture music. It was an iconic time to start what would soon be known as an iconic company.

Alas, ClickBank opened its eyes on April 3, 1998. Two decades later, this teenager-no-more has passed their drivers test, graduated high school, voted in the most recent election and can almost have a legal drink! All-grown-up-ClickBank is now one of the globe’s leading Internet Retailers in the digital marketing industry. With offices overlooking the mountains of both Boise, Idaho and Broomfield, Colorado, the ClickBank family and business have both grown exponentially.

“Back in the day there were only 5 of us. Every two weeks we used to sit on the floor and stuff checks for hours to make sure we paid on time, every time. We did then and we still do now!”Jennifer Johannsen, Vice President of Sales, Risk, and Compliance


We’ve come a long way since 1998 and we are happy to say that we no longer use stacked boxes as desks. But we appreciate the hard work that these early birds put in to build the foundations of this business, leading us to our beautiful, brand new offices.

Speaking of brand new… A NEW BRAND! Out with the old, in with the blue! Take a gander at some throwback photos of past versions of our website.

Though many things have changed, many things have also stayed the same. We have ClickBankers here today that were ClickBankers from the start- with 10, 18, 20 years under their belts! Our founders visit frequently and actively participate in improving and growing ClickBank. We have kept the same drive and a dedication towards our customers, affiliates and vendors. As we reach the age of 20, we realize that we have accomplished a lot. Then we remember… we’re only 20! We hope to continue providing resources to empower entrepreneurs for many years to come. Cheers to another 20 years!

Thank YOU for all of the love and support you have given to ClickBank over the years. This would not have been possible without loyal partners that trust and believe in us.

“When one thinks of internet retailer and/or technology companies that started in the late 90’s and are still around today, the list is fairly short. ClickBank is both – an internet retailer and a technology company – and it continues to be a strong leader 20 years after it was launched to support and grow entrepreneurs and businesses that bring products to market. Our founders envisioned a way to change the world for thousands of people and companies. They have done just that, and more. Congratulations to ClickBank on two decades of internet retail success.”Kevin Strawbridge, ClickBank CEO
