Campaign Specific Content

Hosting your own varied, tailored images, text or video around a specific campaign for A/B testing has proven very useful for ClickBank vendors.

Sample Restriction Notice

Replace VENDOR and PRODUCT below as appropriate.

Dear Affiliate,

ClickBank is the exclusive retailer of PRODUCT, so in order to promote PRODUCT you must become a registered ClickBank affiliate. To do this you will have to establish an account at clickbank.com. Please note that you are acting as an affiliate for ClickBank and therefore must adhere to all of Clickbank’s terms and conditions as can be found here: ClickBank Client Contract.

 

Once you are a registered ClickBank affiliate you will be able to send traffic through a special ClickBank generated affiliate link using our hoplink generator, and you will automatically be credited your respective commission for all sales that result from traffic you send through your special ClickBank affiliate link.

 

Before promoting, please be aware of the following regulations:

 

  1. Affiliates are NOT permitted to use ANY VENDOR or PRODUCT before and after photos in their promotions without written permission from VENDOR. Affiliates may also not run ads on Google Adwords (or any Google property), bid on "VENDOR/PRODUCT" based keywords, use the term "VENDOR/PRODUCT" in any pay per click ads, use any terminology in ads or landing pages that are similar to "scam" or "fraud," or create customer incentives for purchasing PRODUCT (e.g. cash rebates or 3rd party bonus offers).

  2. Affiliates must also NEVER use any images or videos that they do not own, and are forbidden from using any imagery that would imply any endorsement without written consent from the appropriate parties.

  3. Affiliates are forbidden from creating webpages, social media pages or accounts that falsely represent themselves as the creators or owners of the VENDOR product. Any review page and all creative contained therein must include the word 'REVIEW' in the title, the url and any graphics used in the cover image or profile image. This includes blogs, webpages, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or ANY OTHER online entity whether or not it is considered to be "social media".

  4. Affiliates may not bypass VENDOR pages to generate orders. In other words, no direct linking to cart or order forms from any ads or landing pages. The customer must see our offer as presented by us prior to landing on the cart.

Any affiliate caught breaking any of these terms will be banned immediately without hesitation, and will not be eligible for reinstatement.
