The Affiliate Finder tool through ClickBank Insights was designed to help our new vendors connect with affiliates who could help promote their product. This feature is displayed for new vendor accounts until those accounts have enough sales data for the standard ClickBank Insights display. This feature updates once a week, so the display might not appear in your account until the Monday morning after you activate your account.
The following subjects are covered in this article:
To see the Affiliate Finder display, you will need to log into your account. Once you're logged in, you will see the display on your Dashboard.
The Affiliate Finder display will show a bubble chart of affiliates who have had success promoting products similar to yours. We use an algorithm that looks at your product and compares it to products that ClickBank affiliates have promoted and successfully sold. We then calculate an Opportunity Value Score. The score is based on your product’s category, language, currency, price point, type (recurring / standard), conversion rate, refunds and chargebacks. The bubbles are sized and ordered based on your Opportunity Value Score. There is no maximum score.
You can hide or unhide any of the affiliate recommendations you see in the display.

As a vendor, you will be able to send messages to affiliates that appear in your display. It will be up to the affiliate to respond if they are interested in promoting your product or if they are interested in more information. Their response will go to the email address you give in your message. You will not receive a reply back in your account through the Dashboard.
Messages must be between 20 - 1,000 characters (no HTML). Only one message can be sent to any given nickname. Your account nickname, Marketplace Title, and Marketplace Description will automatically be included in every message. Vendors must also include an email address. By default, this field will use the main email address for your account. You are welcome to enter in a different email address if you wish.
After you type your message and give your preferred email address, click the red Send Message button. The display will update to show the following after your message has been sent:
