The ClickBank Affiliate Finder is a helpful feature that displays potential affiliate matches for your product based on an “opportunity value” score.
The opportunity value score (OV) is calculated using product category, language, currency, price point, type of purchase (recurring or standard), refunds, and chargeback. This score indicates how well a particular affiliate is currently doing promoting similar products in the same niche as your product.
There is no max OV and there isn’t a set number of affiliates that are displayed in the Affiliate Finder. As you grow your sales and connect with affiliates, more potential affiliates will be included in the bubble chart display. For more information on how to use the ClickBank Affiliate Finder to connect with potential affiliates, read on.
For Clients in the EU
ClickBank has recently made changes to the Affiliate Finder tool to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is a European Union regulation relating to the processing of personal data, privacy, and consent for EU citizens. To comply with the GDPR we have removed the Affiliate Finder tool from those accounts that are located in the EU.
How to Use the ClickBank Affiliate Finder
Step 1: Log in to your ClickBank Vendor account.
Step 2: Locate the bubble chart under the title ClickBank Insights.
The initial page that is displayed once you log in to your ClickBank Vendor account is the “Dashboard.” The ClickBank Affiliate Finder tool is located under the “ClickBank Insights” header on this page. New ClickBank Vendors will not see this tool until 10 days after the account activation fee has been paid.
Step 3: Review the affiliates selected for you.
In the bubble chart, several affiliates are displayed as potential affiliate matches for you. The bubbles containing the affiliate name are sized and arranged based on their OV.
Step 4: Contact your potential affiliates.
You can contact affiliates directly from the affiliate finder. Click on the bubble of the affiliate you wish to contact and then enter the required information into the provided fields.
ClickTip: Your message can contain between 20-1,000 characters. You are not permitted to use HTML in the message. The message will automatically contain your account nickname, and the title and description of your product. The email address you provided when you signed up as a ClickBank Vendor will populate the email address field by default, however, you can change what email address you would like affiliates to reply to. Only one message can be sent to each ClickBank Affiliate via the ClickBank Affiliate Finder feature.
Step 5: Click the “Send Message” button.
Once you send the message to the potential affiliate, a new affiliate will appear in the affiliate finder bubble chart.
Step 6: Wait for replies.
If an affiliate wishes to connect with you for more information or to promote your product, they will reply to the email address you provided in your message.
Any replies from potential affiliates will not appear in your ClickBank Vendor account nor will be there any indication of a reply from a potential vendor in your account. Check the inbox of the email address you provided regularly to connect with responsive affiliates.
