Here’s a very sneaky ClickBank trick that I’ve never seen anyone else use. It’s not a get-rich-overnight type of trick… more like something useful to have in your toolbag for those times when it’s needed.
Here’s the Story…
On occasion I want / need to get an advance copy of a ClickBank product. This came up to day when I started to get a flood of emails for Andrew Fox’s new Dominating ClickBank 2. I may be able to get a preview copy from Andrew… but in this case I just didn’t have time. It launches tomorrow and I want to preview the content to determine whether or not I can create a value-added offer for the launch.
I do this on occasion and it’s usually a quick way to make $4k – $10k. In fact, I used this with a friend of mine recently and he made over $20,000 in the first week doing a launch product like this.
Here’s the Problem…
Affiliates are already promoting the heck out of the product. Some of them have advance copies… most don’t. I want a clear advantage on launch so I definitely want a copy of the product before-hand. Waiting until launch before I see the product could cost me several thousand dollars.So how do I get an advance copy? I could simply ask Andrew for a copy. But that takes time and he’s probably up to his eyeballs with other launch stuff with just a day to go (even I admit I’m cutting this one close).
So I have the sneaky little ClickBank trick I use. You see, even though his sales page isn’t even up yet his product is in the CickBank database. And that means I can use a little bit of technical magic to go straight to the order page.
I created a nifty little software utility that finds all the possible shopping cart pages in ClickBank and lists them for me. Then I can simply double-click on the product I want (there’s usually just 1 or 2) and order it.I’ve even had vendors sometimes email me wondering how I already bought their product. It can be funny… one panicked because he thought he had a premature launch. High comedy.
There’s a little risk that the vendor may not have downloads and content ready yet, but I haven’t had that problem yet. Every time so far I’ve been able to get access to everything. On occasion the content will be updated after I have it… but most people offer perpetual downloads these days.
Besides… worst case I just get a refund from ClickBank or I wait until the actual launch and get it then.
Anyway, this can be a very powerful (if infrequent) strategy to use to really take advantage of product launches. You can have a gigantic edge over the poor schleps who don’t have access to the content pre-launch.
