An important step in attracting affiliates to promote your product is adding a listing to the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace. The ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace is an online marketplace that displays active accounts with products currently for sale. When affiliates are looking for products to promote, they often check the Affiliate Marketplace first. It’s up to the ClickBank Vendor to create a compelling description to list on the Marketplace to interest potential affiliates.
If your ClickBank Vendor account does not make any sales for twelve consecutive weeks, your Affiliate Marketplace listing will be deactivated. In order to reactivate it, please contact ClickBank. Your listing will be automatically reactivated once your account makes a sale.
Note: Each ClickBank Account can only have one marketplace listing associated with the account. If you have different products in different categories, consider opening an additional ClickBank Account. Vendors can link their account together to access via one login. For more information on adding an additional ClickBank Account, check out this article.
