Did you know that Clickbank now offer you the ability to put a product image and a title into your products sales order or checkout page? This came about in April 2008. (Clickbank didn’t find it worthy of letting anyone know, well I didn’t get an email about it and I’m on their list). Clickbank had a big year in 2008 – starting a blog, taking Paypal payments, offering to pay their users via direct debit instead of cheques and many other improvements.
But since I’ve only just realised this great feature about product images was sitting under my nose all this time, I thought I’d share this with you in case you also didn’t know.
What’s the big deal you ask? Well it’s all about presenting yourself in the best possible light to your customers. Clickbank have certainly cleaned up their order page they present on your behalf, but it’s still not your order page so to speak. You need to get as much of your info on that 3rd party order page to make it look less foreign to your buyers. (Same goes for Paypal if you use that).
If you don’t have an image for your product then I urge you to get one made at rentacoder.com or elance.com for around $20-40USD. The credibility it builds for you and ability for affiliates to use your product image in their promotions is worth it alone.
Here is a very interesting statistic and a potential source of income for a freelance graphic person – “Amazingly 27 percent of ClickBank sales pages have NO usable image whatsoever” (source).
Here’s a screenshot of Script Smart’s Clickbank order form before… You can see that I didn’t have a title of the product and it was just the default text. Not very professional at all.
Here’s a screenshot of after I gave the product a title …
I added my product image to my Clickbank account ( you can see how to do that here )
Had to wait 1 day for it to approved, then associated it with the product.
Now here’s my order form with the image in place.
Looks so much more professional and I’m happy again.
Make sure you are making good use of this excellent feature of Clickbank.
Leave me a comment below as to your thoughts on this. Do you even use a product image to help promote your product.? I believe it’s mandatory for all products digital and physical.
