I am working with a client on the launch of their company. Yeah!
They would like to use ClickBank as a platform for selling membership in their online resource center. We would be supporting this sale through a variety of marketing and advertising. In addition the client is hoping that they will pick up affiliates through the ClickBank platform to promote their product.
After a review of the type of product/service that are sold through ClickBank there seems to be lots of market synergy with my clients' market segment. As a total cost of goods it is expensive as a credit card processor, but with the added value of affiliate tracking, and posting into an established vendor network it seems attractive.
I am see that there are many other options:
- Affiliate Scout
- Google Affiliate Network
- Commission Junction
Who has experience with these for a start-up company? How effective are they? What options should be considered? What variables should be reviewed?
(As an added benefit if anyone has used one of these platforms with Joomla -- that would be critical for me to know as well.)
