Attention New Vendors: If you are a ClickBank Vendor that signed up for a ClickBank account after 10/29/19, make sure you navigate from the new Master Account dash to the operational page of ClickBank before proceeding with these instructions.
ClickBank Vendors are required to select a default HopLink target URL that affiliates’ HopLinks will direct to. This is sometimes referred to as a landing page. It’s the first webpage that potential customers will directly engage with your product on.
It is only necessary that a ClickBank Vendor provide one landing page for affiliates, however, you can provide additional URLs to give affiliates landing page options so they can select the best one to reach their traffic.
Landing pages might differ in what kind of content they feature in order to reach particular demographics. Market research and knowing your product niche can help you figure out what works best.
Once you have developed multiple landing pages, you need to add the HopLink Target URL for affiliates. Here’s a step-by-step guide to do that:
How to add Additional HopLink Target URLs
Step 1: Log in to your ClickBank Account.
Using your log in credentials, access your ClickBank account.
ClickTip: If you created a ClickBank Account on or after 10/29/19, you CANNOT use your Account Nickname to login to that account. Account Nicknames are no longer affiliated with a unique password. Instead, you MUST use your email address as your login credential.
Step 2: Click the “Vendor Settings” tab.
Click the “Vendor Settings” tab located on the horizontal navigation bar at the top of the page. Clicking this tab directs you to the “My Site” page.
Step 3: Locate the “Marketplace Information” box and click “Edit.”
In the center of the page, there is a box titled, “Marketplace Information.” In the upper right-hand corner of this box, there is text that says, “Edit.” Click this text. When you click this, you will be directed to the Marketplace Information Editor.
Step 4: Click the “Add New” button.
At the bottom of the “Marketplace Information Editor” box, there is a section of text titled, “Additional Hoplink Target URLS.” Click the “Add New” button under this section. When you click this, the “Additional HopLink Target URL” dialogue box will appear.
Step 5: Add the additional landing page information.
To add an additional landing page, enter the following information in the fields provided:
- Marketplace Title
In this field, specify what kind of content is on the particular landing page that the HopLink will direct to such as: “Video Sales Letter,” or “Text Sales Letter.” This is a required field.
- Offer Information
In this section, you can provide general information about landing page and recommendations for how they can use it.
- HopLink Target URL
Provide the URL of the landing page in this field. This is a required field.
- Mobile HopLink Target URL
If you have a landing page specifically designed for mobile use, provide the URL of it in this field.
- HopLink Parameter
In this field, provide a parameter that can be added to a HopLink so that it directs to the new landing page.
Step 6: Decide if you want the additional HopLink Target URL displayed in the Affiliate Marketplace.
If you do not want to display the additional landing page, check the “Hide in Marketplace” box.
Step 7: Click the “Save Changes” button.
Once you have entered the necessary information, click the “Save Changes.” Once you click this button, your additional landing page has been added for affiliates to use.
