After your affiliate marketing setup is on track
The game isn’t over, you are not on autopilot and it is not yet time to celebrate! Have you considered the possibility of product returns / refunds / charge backs? This means that even if you have converted a sale, the money isn’t your yet, the money is yours only if the product sale survives the “refund period”.
Even though I convert more than 200 USD sales a day from CB, not more than half of it survives the refund period, if the customer does not enjoy the product – he/she would go for a refund of the product. Below is a screenshot of my ClickBank account that clearly shows the rate of refunds when compared to the sales.
How to reduce the Refunds / Chargeback’s on your ClickBank accounts
The best way to reduce refunds and chargebacks on your ClickBank account is by recommending the best products in your niche and also make sure that you test the product before recommending it to your users.
Converting a sale means you have won the visitor’s trust by having them purchase the product, but if the product isn’t good, you not only lose the trust – you also lose the sale! Keep this is mind and make sure you follow an ethical approach on selling products to your visitors and never let your greed kill your blogging ethics.
Take Home: Blogging success is a build on a foundation made out of trust and ethics!
