ClickBank Insights

ClickBank Insights is a tool that recommends products you could promote or use in upsells, based on your past sales and your customers' buying patterns.

The following topics are covered in this article:

Overview

ClickBank Insights is automatically displayed in the dashboard for qualifying accounts. Accounts must meet a minimum sales amount so that ClickBank has enough data to provide useful recommendations. If you don't see the feature on your dashboard, your account has not yet had enough sales.

If you are a vendor, the ClickBank Insights diagram shows other vendors whose products your customers are likely to buy. If you are an affiliate, the diagram shows vendors whose products the customers you have referred are likely to buy. If you are both an affiliate and a vendor, both diagrams are displayed.

Here's an example of an account dashboard with ClickBank Insights:

Each potential vendor has an Opportunity Value score, which factors in the number of shared customers, the conversion rate, and the average commission per sale. Although this score is a rough indicator, higher Opportunity Value scores should represent better opportunities.

Understanding the Display

The ClickBank Insights display shows a bubble chart of the relative Opportunity Values for the recommended vendors. The Opportunity Value is a guideline number that includes details such as the number of customers shared, the average amount of earnings per sale, and the vendor's conversion rates. The vendors displayed on the bubble chart are scaled according to their Opportunity Values, with larger circles representing a higher value. The vendor with the highest Opportunity Value is selected by default.

You can hover over bubbles to display the vendor nickname. You can also select a vendor in the bubble chart to display detailed information about the vendor, including their ClickBank Marketplace listing, description, category, hoplink, affiliate page link, average money per sale, and other Marketplace statistics. If you are already promoting the account, information about your affiliate activity for the account is also displayed. You can click the PROMOTE button to create hoplinks and begin promoting the account's products.

Data for ClickBank Insights is calculated and updated once a week to include your most recent sales activity and to ensure up-to-date recommendations.

NOTE – The Opportunity Value is calculated on an account-by-account basis. If you have more than one linked account, you may see other accounts you own as recommendations in the feature. See Hiding Accounts for information about hiding accounts that aren't relevant to you.

Vendor Accounts

Vendor accounts will display a bubble chart with recommended vendors whose products your customers are likely to purchase. Customers who have purchased your product are also likely to purchase products from the vendors listed in the display.

Affiliate Accounts

Affiliate accounts will display a bubble chart with recommended vendors whose products your referred customers are likely to purchase. Customers who have purchased a product that you promoted as an affiliate are also likely to purchase products from the vendors listed in the display.

Vendor and Affiliate Accounts

Accounts with both vendor and affiliate activity will see two bubble charts. One is based on their activity as a vendor and the other is based on their activity as an affiliate.

Exclusions

The following categories of accounts are not recommended through ClickBank Insights:

  • Accounts with a Quality Management rating of Unacceptable (red).
  • Accounts that are not listed in the Marketplace.
  • Accounts that have opted out (see Opting Out for more information).

If an account is excluded for any of these three reasons, their recommendation will be removed from your display within 24 hours.

Hiding Accounts

In some cases, the accounts displayed in ClickBank Insights may not be relevant to you, either because you own them, because you already promote them, or because you have no interest in promoting them.

When you select a vendor in the bubble chart, you can click Hide This Vendor to remove them from the display and replace them with another relevant vendor. If you want to see a vendor that you've hidden, click Unhide All.

Opting Out

If you do not want to be recommended to other users through ClickBank Insights, you can opt out.

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click My Site.
  4. Find the ClickBank Insights section and click Edit.
  5. Click Exclude this account in ClickBank Insights.
  6. Click Save Changes.

Opting out only affects the current account. If you have multiple accounts, you must opt out for each account separately.
