Blogger Review -Still Worth It In 2022?

With today’s Blogger Review I want to determine if the platform is still relevant in this day and age. With the technology that took big leaps towards creating stunning websites and competitors like Word Press, Is it still worth it?  I have been using Blogger for 10 years plus and thus feel qualified enough to review the platform and share my experience.




Free – You will only need a Google account.


Ownership and Short History

Blogger is one of the oldest blogging platforms around and was founded in 1999 by Pyra Labs. Google took over in 2003 and redesigned it to become one of the most popular blogging platforms of all time.


Blogspot vs Blogger

Blogspot is the free domain service provider and blogger is the publishing platform (website builder) where you will create your blog. Both are used together and owned by Google. When you create a site on blogger, you will automatically get a Blogspot domain. You also have the option to use your own custom domain (Preferable).


Any Up-Sales?

None, whatsoever. If you choose to add your own custom domain, that will obviously cost extra.


User Interface

Blogger is as straightforward as it gets. The interface is beyond easy to navigate and tabs a clearly marked.  One of the most simplistic builders around, hence the reason why it is the number one for beginners.

What About Support?

Google has a help center and a community to answer questions. Personally, I would not rate it as the best support available as the community seems a bit outdated or lack correct answers. However, the help center will cover all the major problems in detail and it is easy to figure out. I have been using Blogger for 10 years plus and honestly; I never had a problem big enough that could not be solved via the help center.


What About SEO?

Search Engine Optimization is basic on Blogger. You can add a “search description” in your editor and this will obviously be your keywords. You can also choose between the main header, subheader, header, and so forth which obviously represent your H1, H2, and H3. Basically, you have enough SEO options to get you started but it would be a good idea to do a bit of SEO yourself as well for better performance. I will add that I never had any problem ranking well with my Blogger websites, using the SEO provided. Simple, yet effective.

Writing and Publishing

Blogger’s writing platform is easy and straightforward. You can easily add videos and images to your content with multiple options available. You have a “preview” option to view your page before publishing and can also save it as a draft to save for later publishing. Publishing itself is easy with one click.

Blogger Review – My Favorite Features and Pros

100% Free without any upsales. The only thing you need is a Google account.

Creating a website on Blogger is straightforward and simple. It is beyond easy to manage and use the platform. No advanced technical skills are needed.

Your website is hosted by Google, so yeah, no issues with downtime or slow loading speeds.

The platform is secure.

No need to do manual updates as updates are done by Google in the background.

If you use Gmail, YouTube, Adsense, and all of the Google services, it will be easy to intergrade these with your website.

My favorite part of the platform is the detailed statistics that come with it. It includes daily visitor stats, page views, demographics, views on each post, your audience, top referring URL, and so forth. It is impressive for a free blogging platform indeed.

Monetize your website with Adsense and promote it with Adwords to earn income from your blog. Statistics are provided about your earnings to help you keep a close eye on clicks and so on and so forth.

A good variety of themes to choose from, designed to be easily monetized. If the themes available is not up to your taste, you can go with one of the “Simple” themes and monetize it by adding color, changing the fonts and font colors, a header image, and so on.

Blogger review

Settings to monetize your website that includes some of the following: (Please do not ask me to mention everything)

  • Blog address, redirect domain, and custom domain
  • Your blog description and title
  • Privacy
  • Permissions – Blog authors and admin
  • Post settings
  • Comments settings
  • Email Settings
  • HTTPS redirect and availability
  • Monetization
  • Errors and redirects
  • Formatting
  • Backup and import
  • Meta tags
  • Crawlers and indexing

Blogger reviews



Google can suspend/close your website at any time. You ARE NOT the sole owner of your content, Google owns it. So basically, if you cross the line, your site can be snuffed without much warning. I have never encountered this issue with any of my blogs because I keep the rules, but the possibility is always there. If you plan to write about political issues, violence, racism, or anything that might trigger a “report” for inappropriate content, it would be better to go another route.

Since it is a free platform, you are limited to basics. Not a massive variety of gadgets or themes to monetize with. Not an issue per se, however, if creativity and uniqueness are something that you want, this platform is not going to work well.

Not so easy to move a Blogger website elsewhere, basically you are stuck. So yeah, a few hosting companies do offer to move your website over to WordPress, However, for me, personally, it is just too much of a mess and a hassle and never worked out well. URLs end up being broken, the content was a mess and images just did not respond as they should. I ended up just re-doing everything anyway. WordPress and Blogger are just way too different in the way they work.


Let’s Sum This Up…

Keep in mind that this is a free platform and if one prefers perfect with minimal issues, it would be better to rather go the WordPress way and pay for top hosting instead. Simple is sometimes more! Just because there are no fancy tools and themes available, it does not mean that you cannot create something stunning. Blogger’s themes are customizable and with a bit of imagination, you can still create a Blog that looks professional or to the tune of your taste.

The biggest issue that I have with Blogger is obviously the fact that you have no ownership of the content. As mentioned above, it can be snuffed if reported too much. In 2010, ALL my websites were started on Blogger and grew old and successful on this platform. However, today, I only have 2 left and migrated the rest to WordPress, mainly for this reason. I can imagine losing hard work that came for years, just because someone reported it without much reason.  I do make use of the backup feature just in case and I would highly recommend anyone with a website on Blogger to do the same.

To sum it up, after using Blogger for so long, I still love it and feel reluctant to let go completely even tho I prefer WordPress now. Blogger has a few things that are hard to find and priceless. One of those is the lack of downtime, never experienced it in over 10 years. Their ability to handle traffic spikes effortlessly and not throttling or charging additional fees make the risks involved, worth it.

Blogger review

So, this brings us to the final question; is it still a top blogging platform in 2022?

I would say, maybe and most definitely an option to consider if you have very limited funds and still need something stable that performs very well in the areas needed the most. (traffic and uptime). WordPress is the new age of blogging and website development and is on top for a good reason. However, if you love the simpler things in life without too much drama, Blogger will provide just that. If you decide to go the Blogger route, be responsible and back up your website on a regular basis, refrain from posting inappropriate content and you should be just fine.


Well, this is it for this review. Thank you for stopping by, your time is valued and it is appreciated that you made it all the way to the end to read my opinion.

Do you use Blogger or used it in the past?  I hate for one-sided opinions and would love this review to have those of others as well. Please do not be shy and share yours as this will help others to make a more informed decision.

Thank You and Have Yourself an Awesome Day!

Internet Download Manager Review

With this Internet Download Manager Review, I would like to have a go at one of the most popular download managers around, to see if it is worth the space it takes up on my hard drive. I have been using the program for more than a decade and thus feel qualified enough to give an honest opinion about it.  I will include my own user experience and also include the features, pricing, and user interface to help you make a more informed decision prior to buying.




30-Day Trial Available – No need to provide credit card details

One-year license for 1 PC – $11.95

Lifetime license for 1 PC – 24.95

One-year license for 2 and more PCs – $9.95 for each PC

How Does it Work?

IDM is easy to install and manage with a few steps:

Download and install the program on your computer and restart.

Once it is installed, open your browser/s and give IDM permission to integrate, restart your browsers/s once completed. You will now be able to download files/audio/videos and so forth. A “download” button will appear next to content that is downloadable and enable you to choose from the different types of files available for download.

If you open the program on your computer, there will be many other options like Resume, Grabber and queues, Add URL, Delete, and so forth. In addition, you will access “help files”, fine-tune your setting, and manage your registration.

Internet download manager review

What About the Free Trial Version?

IDM offers a 30-day no-obligation trial to test the program. Most of the main features work in this version and you will be able to download content directly from a page. After 30-days the program will stop working and you will need to purchase a license key to get the full version.


How Safe/Stable is the Program?

I’ve been using IDM for more than 10 years and I can honestly say that it has never caused problems on my computers. Uses very little CPU power and barely uses up the RAM as many other programs do. In addition, it does not interfere with the performance of my browsers or antivirus program.

NB:  Download IDM from their own website to avoid an unstable program or scams.


What About Support?

You will find articles on the IDM website that explain how the program works and how to use certain functions. These can also be found when you open the program on your computer. In addition, they also have a “support Webform” that can be filled out if you fail to manage a problem.  To sum it up support is standard and not above average, but then again, I never had problems to the extent where I needed expert help.

Internet download manager review

Any Upsales or Advertisements?

No up-sales whatsoever and IDM is without advertisements that are linked to the program or download bar.

Internet Download Manager Review – Key Features and Pros

Download with just one click.

IDM supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and MMS protocols.

Supports all the popular browsers like Chrome, Mozilla, IE, UCBrowser, AOL, and so forth.

By using the “Advanced Browser Integration” feature, it can be integrated into any application to take over a download.

IDM is multilingual and can be translated into many languages like Bulgarian, Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Arabic, Dutch, Hebrew, and French to only name a few.

IDM can accelerate your downloads by up to five times. It segments files dynamically and reuses connections.

Automatic antivirus checks that make downloads free from Trojans and viruses. “Download All” feature that enables you to download all files that are linked to a current page.

Quick and easy installation wizard that ensures a trouble-free installation and makes the necessary setting changes.

Advanced browser integration – When enabled it can be used to catch any download from any application.

IDM can connect to the internet at a set time and then download files you specified with the built-in scheduler and shut down your computer when the download is done.

Program updates are regular and quick, and normally once a week. Be sure to update the program to have it run smoothly.

IDM will resume unfinished downloads from the place where it was left off. The resume capability and error recovery will then restart broken or interrupted downloads caused by network problems, computer shutdowns, or dropped connections.

You can drag and drop downloaded files out of IDM and also Drag and drop links to IDM.

Internet download manager review


I have a hard time finding anything negative about the program and will only mention points that might be a problem for others.

Besides the Q&A and web form, there are no other methods to solve a problem. I never encountered a problem with their platform (It is that easy to work with), and thus I do not see the need for additional support.

Firefox, my favorite browser, does not always integrate well with IDM. Sometimes the download option will be available on Facebook but not on YouTube. This, however, has NOTHING to do with IDM at all, but rather interference when Firefox updates. Once, IDM updates, after a Firefox update, it works fine again. This does not happen often though and all the other browsers seem to handle IDM just fine.

Internet download manager review

Conclusion Drawn From Own Experience…

I have been using Internet Download Manager for more than 10 years and cannot go without it. In my opinion the best download manager with a beyond user-friendly interface that works well and is reasonably priced.

Video on Facebook is usually the “come and go” type of content; once your timeline refreshes, it is almost impossible to find them again. In addition, there are not that many download managers with the capability to download FB videos. With IDM’s download button below/above videos, it is just a click and you have the video in your download folder to watch later. Facebook usually has a lot of content on the timeline that will include multiple videos. With other downloaders, I have found that it will download the wrong content, however, with IDM, that is never the case. It will grab it correct video all the time.

Internet download manager review

YouTube is bliss with IDM and will list all the file formats available for download. I like to listen to “music remixes” while working and most of them are like an hour to 2 hours long. On a slow connection, it takes forever to load and I have found that IDM actually downloads the video faster than the actual load speed. A must-have for those who struggle with slow connections.

To sum it up…

IDM is a beyond-impressive program that allows you to download almost any type of file. I would say that it is definitely under-priced for what it does and its stability. No annoying advertisements or up-sales which makes it bliss to have around all day.

IDM is a trustworthy company with a product that delivers!  When I buy something online, I usually get a bad feeling that it would most likely be one of those purchases where I will be overcharged or have a charge that goes off without permission. (Happens often since I review products). Each time I purchased IDM, the transaction was secure with no over-charging and I got exactly what I paid for.


Just because you can download any type of file, does not mean you should!

A lot of content has copyright and it is considered stealing when you download those without paying for them. There is also common courtesy and please consider that content creators work endless hours to bring you awesome videos and such. Be kind and share/like/recommend their stuff. It is also good manners to ask if you can download their content for personal use before doing so.


Well, that is it for this review. Do you use IDM or used it in the past? Please be so kind to help me refrain from making this a one-sided opinion by sharing your experience. It would be much appreciated!

Have yourself an awesome day!

Iq Option Review – Scam or Legit?

In this IQ Option review, we will look at, one of the more popular binary trading platforms out there, and determine whether or not it is worth spending your time and money on. Some have claimed to make thousands with a few clicks. Is this true? Is the platform legit? What does it cost? These are all questions that will be answered in this review.




Who Are the Founders?

The sole founder of IQ Option is Dmitry Zaretsky.


What Does It Cost?

The IQ Option platform is completely free to join, but you will have to deposit money before you can start trading. Furthermore, there are a few fees and costs that will need to be paid upon cash out.


Short History

The program was first used by Russia back in 2008 as a way of detecting scam brokers, but the founder saw a lot more potential in it. In 2013 IQ Option was founded and released to the public as a basic trading program, but the program took off almost instantly, with hundreds of new members each week. Since then the company has developed apps for Android, Apple, and so on, not to mention upgraded the program itself, giving us what we have now; one of the most popular trading platforms that have millions of members with new ones joining every day.

Iq option review

How Does It Work?

Once you have created your account and deposited funds, you can in a manner of speaking, start trading. First, you will have to choose between cryptocurrencies, ETFs, stocks, commodities, and so forth. Once you have chosen the market you want to trade in, you will have to choose a currency, stock commodity, or other you want to trade with depending on the market you are in.

Then, once you have made these choices, you will be provided with a flowing graph that conveys how the markets are changing (Up or Down). Now it is up to you to try and predict which way it will go, up or down, then place a bid of $1+ using your prediction. If you are correct then you will earn back what you bid, along with a % of that same amount, the % depending on the market you are in. If you are wrong in your prediction, you lose the money you bid.

The market you are in can be changed at any time, or you can even bid on multiple platforms at a time, the choice is yours. Your earnings can be paid into your bank account.

Please Note: You are not buying stocks, nor will you own them. You are bidding on whether or not they will go up or down. Simply put, you are betting on the markets.

Iq option trading review

Scam or Legit?

It is not a scam, but rather a legitimate gambling platform, where you can either win some or lose some. Winnings are paid on time and without issues.

To describe it in a way that is easier to understand; if you are an expert or are willing to learn and become one on the markets, then you are simply gambling using your knowledge. This is a lot like controlled gambling, which gives you more power over the bids you place, unlike slot machines that give you no control at all. IQ Option provides a multitude of tools/features that can be used to help predict the markets and which way they are going. If you have no idea what you are doing, and no knowledge of trading, you will more than likely lose more than you win.

All kinds of training, guides, tutorials, and so forth, as well as a multitude of free online training, are provided to help teach people about trading and market trends. My suggestion, study up first if you are serious about becoming a trader and winning bids.


How To Make Money Online – Popular Options


What About Support?

IQ Option provides support 7 days a week, 365 days a year and can always be counted on to help resolve problems and such you may encounter. Their support is offered via email or by phone, and they have a live chat area where members can help each other out and/or communicate.


User Interface

The platform is easy to navigate and runs smoothly. Not completely beginner-friendly and if you do not have a general idea of trading graphs, indicators, and so on, then there is a bit of a learning curve. The tools/features are accurate and easy to use.

Although it is common knowledge, I feel I still need to mention it, but internet speed plays a large role when using these sorts of platforms. Slow internet speeds can lead to bids not registering on time thus leading to a loss since a few seconds can be the difference between winning or losing a bet.

Features/Tools to Note

Mobile – IQ Option app for mobile devices.

Indicators – A multitude of indicators such as MA, ADS, ATR, and so forth, that help predict the markets.

Accounts – 2 Accounts, one a demo for practice (Doesn’t pay out), the other, a personal account for trading and earning (Pays out).

Charting Tools – 5 Charting tools that assist you in predicting the markets, but they have a learning curve to them.

Markets/Assets – A Multitude of different markets/assets to use for trading, including stocks, ETFs, cryptocurrencies, and so much more.

Tournaments – Daily, monthly, and yearly tournaments where you have to trade and earn more than fellow competitors to win prize money.

Calendars – A calendar that marks all important events that have an affects on the markets.

Affiliate Program – A referral program that allows you to profit by referring members to IQ Option.

CPA Program – A Payment program where you get paid certain amounts when your referrals deposit cash.

Iq option scam

IQ Option Review – Pros

IQ Option support is excellent.

IQ Option provides a free downloadable app for windows, allowing for better and faster use of their tools/features.

A free demo account is provided to learn and practice with, thus avoiding loss of money.

Videos detailing how to use the tools are provided by IQ Option.

They have a charity that helps people in need with water, food, and so forth.

They have more than just one trading option, allowing people to pick what works best for them.

It works on mobile devices allowing you to trade on the go.

You can either install IQ Option on your computer or just use it via the web browser.

They provide tools and features to help predict the markets.

The platform is available in over 170 countries.

The company prides itself on security for its members and their info, not to mention their accounts.

Withdrawals and deposits are easily done and similarly with very little fees.

The risk management feature allows you to manage your profits and losses.

Iq option scam


The program is banned in certain countries.

If not familiar with trading, it can be rather tricky to learn how to use the indicators correctly.



IQ Option is not a definite way of making money, and should rather be seen as a way of gambling, especially if you are a beginner in binary. I do not recommend using this program as a way out of financial trouble if you are low on cash. Yes, a lot of people have had success with the program and made quite a bit of money, however, they have also lost quite a bit while learning. It is also a lot easier to make money on the demo account than a real one, as with the demo account, there is no fear of loss or caution, and as such you trade higher amounts and so forth, but with a real account the fear of loss and caution is very real, therefore you trade smaller amounts making fewer profits, not to mention second guessing every movement.

If you have some extra cash to spare that won’t hurt your pockets, this is a great form of entertainment, you lose some, and you win some.

GetResponse Review – Basic Overview

With this GetResponse review, I will cover all the basics of the program to determine if it is worth spending money on. They are one of the more popular email platforms around and it is used mainly as an auto-responder service, but they are better known for being an all-in-one platform when it comes to marketing services. Their email marketing service has always been top-notch, so how does the rest of their services compare? Well, let us find out.



What is GetResponse?

Mainly, the program is an email marketing service provider that offers tools needed in the creation of emails, email campaigns/lists, and so on. In other words, it is a hyped-up auto-responder, which includes a multitude of extra marketing tools to be used at your discretion. GetResponse offers more than most other auto-responder service providers, including:

  • Landing Pages
  • Webinars
  • Tools to run and manage paid ads
  • Auto-responder (Email Marketing Services)
  • Marketing Automation
  • Conversion Funnel

Getresponse review

Founder and Short History

Simon Grabowski founded GetResponse back in 1998 as a way of setting up an email list and a way of dripping content at preset times. Thus, using only $200, he created GetResponse, a program that would over time grow, becoming something much more as more tools and features were added, making the program better and better, allowing it to rise and become as successful as it is today.


Getresponse Pricing

GetResponse has a free trial, as well as the following plans:

Keep in mind that the price is affected by list size.


Monthly – $19 to $539 per month.

Yearly – $15.58 to $441.98 per month.

2 Year (24 Month) – $13.30 to $377.30 per month.


Monthly – $59 to $599 per month.

Yearly – $48.38 to $491.18 per month.

2 Year (24 Month) – $41.30 to $419.30 per month.


Monthly – $119 to $699 per month.

Yearly – $97.58 to $573.18 per month.

2 Year (24 Month) – $83.30 to 44489.30 per month.

Max plans have custom pricing.


Any Up-Sales?

The program itself has no up-sales whatsoever. You get what you have paid for. They offer different plans, including custom ones, and those are the only monthly costs you will have from them. However, they do offer a marketing toolkit, which is a 3rd party program/service, but the toolkit is not a must-have and comes at a discount for premium members.


What About A Money-Back Guarantee?

GetResponse offers a free trial, but not a money-back guarantee. The free trial can be used on any of the plans, except for the custom ones, and last up to 30 days, not to mention the free-for-life, very basic plan that you can join.


How To Make Money Online – Popular Options


Is The Program Legit?

GetResponse has been around for a lifetime, and to add to that, they have millions of successful clients, and therefore, it is safe to conclude that the program is most definitely a legitimate one.


User Interface

The platform has a neat appearance and is easily navigated, with tabs, categories, and so forth. I am most fond of the quick actions portion, which is a list of your most popular performed tasks. The dashboard can also be easily customized, removing or adding widgets and so forth.

Email Marketing – A Drag-and-Drop editor allows for a large variety of email types to be created. It is completely user-friendly and easily learned and gotten used. The editing is simple and the templates are easy to use. Managing lists can be relatively easy, once you have gotten used to it. They have a multitude of templates for forms (Registration, Opt-In, and Opt-out), which are easily edited and managed.

In summary, the email marketing service is simple and easy to use, once you’ve gotten accustomed to it, and the rest of the tools/features. A Bit of a learning curve is involved as with most programs, and I have found that the landing page builder can be glitchy.

Getresponse review

What about Technical Support?

The support offered by GetResponse is good, and it includes an online chatbox, made up of tons of people, quite a few of them being professionals that know what it is they are doing. This allows one to ask questions and get the answers within minutes. Other types of support are also offered including, live support from GetResponse employees. In summary, very reasonable support.


What About Tutorials?

GetResponse offers a wide range of articles covering each section/tool, including topics such as setting up your email marketing campaigns as well as managing your marketing automation and lists. They furthermore have the GetResponse academy, a very good and on-point academy that teaches people how to create lists and such.

Getresponse review

Features that Stand Out For Me

Email Marketing – A bunch of tools and/or features to help design, create, manage and automate emails and lists.

Conversion Funnel – Tools/features to create different kinds of funnels.

Landing Pages – Features and tools needed for creating landing pages and so forth.

Marketing Automation – The tools needed to automate as much of your marketing as possible.

Webinars – Video and webinar tools to help you interact with clients and audiences.

Paid Ads – Tools needed to create paid advertising.

List Building Program – GetResponse University, an online course to teach you everything about email marketing via GetResponse.

Website Builder – 2 Ways of building a website, DIY, or AI-assisted.

Market Place – GetResponse products to promote.

Mobile Apps – Mobile apps created by GetResponse, including the GetResponse app.

Getresponse review

GetResponse Review – Pros

GetResponse offers a free 30-day trial, that will give you access to all of their tools/features, without the need to give up any payment details.

You get a significant discount when signing up for the 1 – 2 year plans.

GetResponse comes with integrated CRM.

They offer a multitude of tools and features including some rather impressive ones such as their marketing automation.

Tools and/or features are mostly easy to understand and simple to use.

GetResponse not only offers a massive amount of functional and great-looking templates, but they also have blank ones that can be customized to suit your needs.

Getresponse review


There are no refund policies or money-back guarantees at all. Once you have paid, you will not be seeing that money again.

Canceling subscriptions can be a difficult quest to complete.

The platform does have some glitches, especially around the landing page builder.

Importing lists from other servers can be a difficult task.


My Personal Opinion…

GetResponse used to be my go-to, and I’d still rather use some of their features over those of other email marketing service providers, however, they are sadly not my top recommendation anymore for these reasons:

Some of their terms are dubious, or just completely confusing.

The GetResponse compliance team works extremely hard to ensure that emails and lists are of high quality, to keep their relevance scores high. This is of course understandable as one would not want for emails to be flagged as spam, but maybe they are working a little too hard on this, or at the very least, they could approach the situation differently. Let me explain unless you have a great database, your list can go up in smoke rather quickly, and you cannot get it back. To put it simply, they have a no bad list tolerance. Now obviously you do not want a bad list, but because of this, the platform is not beginner-friendly, or for inexperienced email marketers. I just think, members should be given enough time to export their lists, before shutting it down.

Thinking of exporting your list from a third party to GetResponse? Well, may the odds be forever in your favor? Not to mention, you could spend a lot of time and effort on building a list, only to have it closed down and completely gone forever.

To sum it all up, unless you are 100% sure your database is good, then GetResponse is not for you. If you so much as violate a single term, your account gets shut down, with no means of exporting your list beforehand, thus losing all your contacts. If you do decide to use GetResponse, export your list on a frequent base as a means of backup.

The final verdict, it is not recommended for beginners at all but is an awesome platform to work with, if you know what you are doing.

Do you use GetResponse or used it in the past? To refrain from making this a one-sided opinion, please be so kind as to tell us about your experience in the comment section. It would be much appreciated!

Well, that is it for now, thank you for stopping by.

Have an Awesome Day!

The clickfunnels review

Any Up-Sales?

ClickFunnels has advanced training that is offered separately at the price of $47, a once-off payment.

There are other services not offered by ClickFunnels that will have to be obtained via third-party program subscriptions, which will have to be paid for separately.

After subscribing you will also get access to the products and services that ClickFunnels sells on its website each coming with a price of its own.

What About Support?

Support from ClickFunnels is offered in a multitude of ways, from online chats, Blogs, Email Support, and FAQ Pages, to a Facebook group and everything in between. If you require help, there are plentiful ways of getting it. The most popular ways are the Facebook group and the Chat support as they provide help the fastest, but don’t forget about the FAQ Pages as your question might already be there and answered.

The clickfunnels review

What About a Money-Back Guarantee?

ClickFunnels offers no money-back guarantee, but they do have a 14-day trial. If you cancel your subscription before 1 year has passed since sign-up, then you will receive credits to spend on other ClickFunnels services or products, but otherwise, there is no refund. There might also be a cancelation fee depending on the circumstances of the cancelation.


Legit or Scam?

ClickFunnels is not a scam, and most definitely legit. They have more than 5 years of services and quite a great amount of clients, not to mention people who have been or are still currently successful with them. Yes, the program might have a bug or two, but otherwise, completely legit.


User Interface

The platform’s user interface is complicated and not beginner-friendly; therefore, I am not particularly impressed with it. The page builder in my experience was found to be on the slow side, and the drag-and-drop was not as easy as it is on other platforms. There is most definitely a learning curve to the platform, but once you get the hang of it, smooth sailing from thereon.

Click funnels reviews

Do They have Training and/or Tutorials?

ClickFunnels provides guides, forums, tutorials, and so on, as a way of helping their clients understand the program and the tools/features that come with it. A training program known as Funnel Flix, which provides training and courses, is also available but purchased separately during sign-up.


Can I make Money with ClickFunnels?

Using funnels to make money is becoming a more and more popular thing these days, and it is a legitimate way of generating more sales, therefore, a way of making money, but as with any internet marketing program, time, patience, and hard work will be needed to be successful. So in summary, yes, it is possible to make money with the program.


Who is the Program Intended For?

Simply put, any business with an online presence interested in using funnels as a way of generating more sales, thus making more money, can use the program as long as they are willing to learn how to use funnels and the program, not to mention put in the work.

ClickFunnels Review – Pros

Steven and Russell are great teachers who know how to get information across to their audiences, and how to keep them involved. CF training is above average.

You can create a professional affiliate program with the ClickFunnels Premium Plan.

Funnel Templates are provided by ClickFunnels, which is great for those amongst us who have never created one before as it gives them a great place to start.

The drag-and-drop editor makes navigation easier and makes it much simpler to use.

They provide a multitude of elements and widgets to use.

The first domain name is completely free.

ClickFunnels has 2 massive online communities in the form of 2 Facebook Groups, one of which is for affiliates and the other for all members.

ClickFunnels can be easily integrated with most email and payment providers.

Clickfunnels a scam


The ClickFunnels affiliate program cannot be joined by anyone at any time. Yes, any affiliate can promote their basic products such as Dotcom Secrets, but the rest of it, such as the program itself, can only be promoted by those who have made more than $1000 advertising their basic products, not to mention that you have to not only join but complete the ClickFunnels affiliate boot camp training course.

The basic plan limits the number of visitors and funnels you can have.

The huge training curve that ClickFunnels has can be very intimidating to a lot of people.

Considering that programs such as LeadPages offers similar tools and features at a lower cost, ClickFunnels can be considered pricey.

The split testing offered is rather basic.

Clickfunnels review


To be honest, I expected ClickFunnels to be this beyond awesome product, considering that it’s been blown up all over with advertising and affiliates going nuts over it like it’s the next big thing only second to ice cream, so I am a rather bit disappointed and for a few reasons.

I never found a design style that I liked. A lot, if not most of the web pages are cheap looking, flashy, and just overall intimidating. I prefer going for landing pages that are classier professional-looking, and just have more of an upmarket look and feel. Marketing like this has been used for ages, by millions of people and it’s nothing new. So yeah, when people land on a page that looks cheap and flashy, their BS rather is immediately turned on, and they become wary. If you plan on thriving in this industry, you best build a classy-looking page that screams “I am a professional”, rather than a flashy thing that screams “buy my scams”. In summary, I had a hard time building a page that satisfied me.

They have no free option, and though they do offer a trial, you have to submit credit card details upon subscribing, which is as good as buying it. These days, there are way too many scams around, which makes people wary of just blindly giving out credit card details, because, well you might decide that the program just isn’t for you, but then it gets deducted anyway, right? If the program is truly that great, then just offer a free version or a free trial without the need for details, and the program will sell itself. People wouldn’t hesitate to upgrade once they see the value in it.


I do not recommend this program for newbies, it is better suited for someone who already has an established business/product, and just needs a way of marketing it better. The program is also expensive, and knowledge is needed to make it work, therefore, again, not beginner-friendly. I’d give the program a rating of 8/10, as it is an excellent program, not to mention Brunson is an expert who knows what he is doing, and the books plus training, all support the program 100%.

Well, this is it, for now, thank you for visiting, and please do not be shy to share your opinion as this will help others to make a more informed decision.

Thank You and Have Yourself an Awesome Day!




Small SEO Tools Review – Best Free Tools?

Need to do SEO on a budget but not sure if free is actually reliable. With this Small SEO Tools review, we will have a look at the suit to see if it is worth the time. I have been using SST for many years and thus feel qualified enough to give an honest opinion regarding the platform. To keep this review short and sweet and to save you time, I do not list all the features in detail as it is already on their home page. If you require more information or have questions please drop a comment and I will gladly fill the gap.

One-sided opinions are so boring, right? If you use SST or used it in the past please tell us about it in the comment section as this will help others to make a more informed decision. Thank You!




What is SmallSEOTools all About?

It is an online suite that is focused on mostly SEO optimization. They offer more than 15 categories of tools to optimize your website. In addition, they also offer additional tools to make life online a bit easier.


Short History

SST was started by Tausif Akram in 2010 in the UK. He wanted to make life a bit easier for webmasters with access to advanced online tools that would enhance their content. Obviously still going strong with more improvements and tools added over the years.



Tools are free to use but please take note that some tools have limitations like the number of words your can scan on a monthly basis and so forth. SST offers a series of payment options if you wish to exceed some of the limits. Pricing starts at $9.80 for basic and goes all the way up to $599.


User Interface and Ease of Use

The dashboard is straightforward with clearly marked tabs for each tool, making navigation a breeze. The tools are beyond easy to use, mostly just a click of a few buttons to complete a task. If simplistic is your thing, then you will most definitely enjoy using this platform.

Small seo tools review

Quick Rundown of My Favorite (And not so Favorable) Tools

Plagiarism checker – This is my favorite tool and the one I use the most! Beyond reliable and also the most accurate compared to other tools. Plagiarism can absolutely ruin search engine rankings and thus far this tool made quite a bit of first-page rankings possible by pointing out duplicate content that other tools simply missed. In addition, it points out exactly the phrase or words that are plagiarized and the source. Awesome tool that you cannot go without!

Small seo tools review

Ping Tool – I have absolutely no definite proof if pinging the engines makes a huge difference but I swear, this one does! Been blogging for about 12+ now and it is a custom to use the SST ping tool after publishing an article. Usually, articles will index only a day or two after using the tool whereas if I forget to ping, it will take longer.  Obviously quite a few factors regarding indexing, however, I love their ping tool as I am convinced that it brought me luck when it comes to fast indexing over the years.

Backlink Checker – This allows you to calculate the number of backlinks pointing to a page. A reliable tool to some extent as data is sometimes conflicting with other online tools like Google analysis. The margin however is not big.

Small seo tools review

Website SEO Score Checker – You can use this tool to find out the SEO score of a website and identify the elements that need to be worked on to increase the score. Beyond useful tool that I use quite often to identify problems.

Article Rewriter – Not my favorite but then again, I am not such a huge fan of rewriters at all as the content just seems off most of the time and takes the human element out of it. I’ve been creating content for many years and tested rewriters quite a few times to see how such articles will perform against written content and No, an article that is re-written by software is almost always on a losing streak.

Grammar and Spell checker – Works for basic grammar and spelling mistakes, overall not bad for a free tool.

Word to PDF converter – This Will convert your files from DOCX to PDF format without affecting text formation. Really cool feature since most platforms offering this service is not free or scramble the text.

Additional tools include but are not limited to:

  • MD% Generator
  • Text to Image
  • Text to Speech
  • JPG to word
  • Domain Authority checker
  • Image Compressor
  • Video Downloader
  • Facebook Video downloader
  • Image Resizer
  • Video to Gif Converter

And so forth.


Small SEO Tools Review – Pros

A large number of free tools are available.

A good portion of the tools is reliable like the plagiarism detector and ping tool to only name a few.

Tools are available worldwide and available in a few different languages.

Their blog has some useful articles that are informative and fun to read.

Small seo tools review


Some of the functions are not directly available on the platform and depend on third-party tools that will require registration to be used.

Analysis capacity is quite limited for the free version.


Let’s Sum This Up…

They offer some of the best free tools available that are much more reliable than many other tools. If you are on a budget with limited funds but still need basic SEO done, this is a good starting point. Although I do not use all the tools and went for some more advanced tools when it comes to grammar checking and keyword research I can say in all honesty that I still to this day stick with some of their tools since I find them more reliable than most.

Will their tools make a difference to your content?  Yes, they will if used correctly! Keep in mind tho that SEO starts with great content creation, something that is unique and fresh. If constant rewriting is your idea of producing content, you might not do so well as the human factor cannot seldom be mimicked by online re-writers.

Well, that is it for this review, thank you for visiting, and please remember to add your opinion if you have time as this will make the review more informative for others.

Have Yourself An Awesome Day!


ConvertKit Review – Simplistic Marketing

With this ConvertKit review, I will be covering all the basics of the platform to determine if it is worth the time and money. We will take a look at their features and tools, prices, and so forth, comparing them against other companies such as AWeber and GetResponse to determine which is best, as well as cover the pros and cons of ConvertKit.

Please Note – This is not a features list and a detailed overview of features and tools will not be given as they are already covered on their main page.

One-sided opinions are not always useful, so if you have in the past or are currently using ConvertKit, kindly leave a comment regarding your experiences and help others get a better understanding before they spend their money. Thank You.




What is ConvertKit?

ConvertKit is an Email Service Provider (ESP) and one of the global leading email marketing companies out there today. What are ESPs and what do they do? Well, that’s simple, they were founded for a few different reasons, such as landing pages and automated email services, nonetheless, there was a single goal in mind, to provide email marketing services, thus the reason why they are mostly called email marketing companies instead of email service providers, but both terms are correct.

Now as to the point of what ConvertKit is other than an Email Service Provider, whelp, they are a company that offers all of the most commonly used marketing services available and then some, all with a spin on it. They provide their features, tools, services, and so on, offering a unique experience, not to mention they offer tools/features that other companies do not provide, and other features/tools have been updated in new ways to make things easier, simpler, more successful, and so forth.

Simply put, ConvertKit is an ESP with a twist.

Convertkit review

Founders and Short History

Nathan Barry founded the company back in 2013, and at first, it was founded as just a method of reaching more people through his blog. As time passed, the program evolved into something more, and Nathan decided to share it with the world. Over the years, ConvertKit was upgraded frequently until we got the program that we have today. An affiliate program was also added back in 2015, so as the members grew, so did the program.

Convertkit review

What About a Money-Back Guarantee?

All of ConvertKit’s plans including the annual ones included have a 30 money-back guarantee, so no matter when or for how long you have signed up, within the first 30 days you can cancel and request a refund.


User Interface and Ease of Use

Signing up is simple and easy to do within seconds. The dashboard they use is straightforward with clearly marked tabs, which makes navigation a breeze and there are no flashing banners or bright colors that put a strain on a person’s eyes.

ConvertKit is a beginner-friendly program and learning how to use it is not an extremely tedious task as with other email marketing companies. Their forms are easily edited and they provide a good variety of templates to pick from.

Their user interface will be a blessing, especially if simplistic is your thing.

Convertkit review


What About Support?

Quite a few different forms of support are offered, such as email service, FAQ Pages, articles, help center, videos, guides, and so forth. With such a multitude of ways in which to find support, one is bound to find the support one is looking for.


Do They have Training and/or Tutorials?

Free courses and video tutorials are included with ConvertKit to help give members a basic understanding of the program and how it works.

Convertkit reviews


Can I Make Money with ConvertKit?

For such a simple question, the answer is anything but, so I will give my own. Yes, money can be made with the program, of course depending on whether or not you put in the time and effort to do so, and that is not even considering that the program by itself will do nothing for you as a website, social following, and so forth is needed for content. So in short, it is a possibility to make money with ConvertKit, but it will take hard work.


ConvertKit Review – Pros

Once you have found your footing with the tool, it is easy to use and simple to understand.

The landing page editor will allow you to create landing pages, whether you have a website or not.

The support provided is responsive, and help is usually provided to their members.

Another way of earning is added, as ConvertKit allows members to charge a subscription fee for their newsletters.

They offer a money-back guarantee on all of their plans, including annual, so if the program is not working for you, feel free to cancel and get a refund within the first 30 days.

A completely free membership with limited tools and features is offered by ConvertKit, thus giving you the chance to use and try the program properly free of any costs, allowing you to test and discover whether the program is worth investing money in or not.

Convertkit reviews



Other programs such as Aweber offer much the same or very similar tools and features, and at a lower cost than ConvertKit, and as such it is not the least expensive ESP out there.

Most of their templates are limited and text-based. They could use a bit of an update in this area of their program, like adding more choices, varieties, and so forth.

More basic reports such as click-through rates, unsubscribe rates, and so forth are offered, but not the more advanced reports such as geo-tagging, click maps, and so on.



If you are simplistic like me, then this will be the perfect platform for you. I hate clutter, and having to work with a dashboard that has too many things on it or in one place makes navigation a task all of its own and it can get annoying real fast. This is part of the reason I like ConvertKit, and it offers all the things needed for a basic email campaign setup.

I admit I do not spend a lot of time on email marketing as I am a blogger and website builder and as such spend my time creating content, thus not the time for email marketing campaigns or the need for a fancy email provider. However, if it is your plan to towards more in-depth email marketing campaigns, I rather advise finding another program/service provider that offers more tools and such, ConvertKit being a bit on the limited side when it comes to certain things such as forms and templates.

In summary, if you’re a beginner then ConvertKit with its simplistic navigation and layout is the perfect starting point, for it is a program that will give you similar results as others.

Everything from the tools needed to create email lists, newsletters, campaigns, and so forth, to auto-responders and so on. It is an all-in-one, one-stop, platform for email marketers.


Founder and Short History

Tom Kulzer, a software engineer, was the sole founder of AWeber back in 1998. He had discovered the lack of automated response software, and it had set him on a journey of building his own, which ultimately lead to him designing an automated web assistant that would eventually become AWeber. The program would be updated, changed, and so forth to keep up as the times changed, which is what lead to the platform we ultimately have today.


Aweber Pricing

AWeber provides 2 different plans to choose from, one being a basic plan that is completely free to join, allowing up to 500 subscribers, and offers access to all of AWeber’s features and tools.

The second plan offered is the Pro plan, the cost of it depends on how long you subscribe and how many subscribers you have, nonetheless, it offers access to all of AWeber’s features and tools.

Monthly Plan – $19.99 and upwards per month, the price increases, the more subscribers you have. ($19.99 – $149.99 per month)

Quarterly Plan (3 Months) – $16.33 and upwards per month, the price increases the more subscribers you have. ($16.33 – $146.33 per month, billed quarterly)

Annual Plan (Yearly) – $16.15 and upwards per month, the price increases the more subscribers you have. ($16.15 – $146.15 per month, billed annually)


Any Up-Sales?

For those who have more than 250 000 subscribers, special plans, with special pricing custom made, and though this is not an up-sale per se, it is worth mentioning. There are no other up-sales or costs.


What about a Money-Back Guarantee?

As AWeber already has a full free plan, they do not provide any money-back guarantees whatsoever, but they do however provide refunds on time not used, meaning when you cancel your plan, you will be refunded for the days you had left on your plan that will not be used.


Legit or a Scam?

There are many different reasons to believe and state AWeber as legitimate. The program is over 2 decades (20 years) old and has a multitude of users. With so many users, they also have quite a lot of success stories dating back over 20 years, a lot of them willing to speak for the program.

Swagbucks Review – Scam or Legit?

I have been using rewards programs for quite some time, thus, with this Swagbucks review, I want to determine if it is worth the effort or just a complete waste of time. They are one of the more popular rewards programs currently online that many claims to make a decent chunk of money compared to others. Let’s found out…

But first, Do you use Swagbucks, or used it in the past? Please be so kind as to share your experience in the comments as this would keep this review from being one-sided, it would be appreciated!




What is Swagbucks?

Swagbucks is an online rewards program that enables people to earn a digital currency called Swag Bucks by completing various online tasks such as playing certain games, searching the web, completing surveys, and so forth. Once enough Swag Bucks have been earned, the currency can be exchanged for various rewards/gift cards, including, but not limited to PayPal reward cards, Stream Gift Cards, Amazon Gift Cards, and so forth. Swag Bucks can also be used to buy items from Swagbucks.

Swagbucks scam

Who are the Founders?

Josef Gorowitz and Scott Dudelson founded Swagbucks as a way to help people earn a bit extra each month.


Short History

The company behind Swagbucks, Prodege has been around for many, many years, however, Swagbucks itself was founded back in 2008. The company, the program, and the people behind it all, have been nominated for and even won their fair share of rewards over the years. Their awards along with their impeccable services are what makes them one of the leading and most popular rewards programs currently out there.


Who Will Benefit From Swagbucks?

Anyone over the age of 13 that has some free time that they would like to use to earn something extra in a rather interesting way while doing things online that most people do anyways, will benefit from the program. The age restriction of 13+ makes it a great program for teens especially but it is not limited to them.


What Does it Cost?

Only an email is needed to sign up, and it is completely free to join, with no costs, payments, or added fees.


Any Up-Sales?

The program is completely free to join with no added charges and does no up-sales or anything of the kind. There are no fees for exchanging Swag Bucks either. Take note! There are however some tasks that will require you to purchase something if you want to earn SB. These can be shopping, in-app purchases, and so forth.


Legit or Scam?

The program is most definitely NOT a scam, it is legitimate. They have millions of users who not only earn Swag Bucks every month but also exchange it for reward cards, which do work 100%. I mean, sure, there are limits on how much is needed before you can cash out, and quite a bit of Swag Bucks is needed for exchanges, but it is still legit, and if you do earn it, you do get it.


How To Make Money Online – Popular Options


User Interface

The platform is easy to navigate with clear buttons that are easy to understand. No loading up or lagging issues and I have found them to be online every time I log in.

Swagbucks legit


What About Support?

Support in the form of Email, Tickets, FAQ Pages, and so on is provided and it is available 24/7. However, just because they offer multiple ways of support 24/7, does not mean they are on any lists for winning rewards regarding their support it has some room for improvements, but then again, I have certainly seen worse.


How To Earn and What Do You Get?

Swag Bucks can be earned in multiple ways, and they try to have something for everyone. The various activities one can use to earn include:

  • Completing offers
  • Filling in and completing surveys
  • Making purchases online at select stores
  • Playing games or making in-game purchases
  • Referral program – Earn Swag Bucks with every person you refer to the program that then earns Swag Bucks themselves. When they earn by searching the web, you earn as well.

Please do note that quite a bit of points are needed if you are going to exchange them for something worthwhile. 100SB is usually worth about $1, so a $5 Amazon Gift card will require 500SB to exchange. A $25 PayPal cash out will require 2500SB to exchange.

Owner of a website or blog, well, use the very handy Swagbucks widget and attract more visitors that will use Swagbucks directly from your website and/or blog, thus earning you even more credits through referrals and such.

Completing all your profiles on third-party platforms such as Yuno and Peanut Labs will ensure that you have better chances of being approved for a survey/task, or get you a longer list of surveys/tasks to apply for.

Swagbucks review


Swagbucks Review – Pros

Signing up and earning with Swagbucks is completely and 100% free and does not cost a single cent.

A multitude of rewards and/or prizes are offered and you will never be limited in your choice or preference.

The Swagbucks user interface is simple to understand and easy to use, to the point that a teenager would not have any trouble at all.

Filling in and completing surveys/tasks is rather simple to do, and a college degree is not necessary to do so, thus allowing people from all walks of life to participate.



Unfortunately, the program is only available in a few countries worldwide and has not as of yet gone completely international, and as such, only a few can participate.

If you do not complete your profile correctly then chances of getting surveys are slim, being approved, much less so. Things such as degrees, special skills, frequent traveling, frequent shopping, and so forth are needed to increase the chances of surveys.

Swagbucks reviews



Swagbucks is not a program that will make you rich, at all; it will not even replace your monthly income. Some of course will make a decent amount, more so than others, but it will vary depending on age, demographics, and how well you fit the profile. People who travel a lot, do a lot of shopping, as some sort of degree, and so forth will be able to earn a lot more as more surveys/tasks will be available to them. In all honestly, if you can do this already, then there is no need to spend time and effort earning Swag Bucks, right? The program is a great time killer that allows you to pass time and earn a little something extra while doing so, but it is not the solution if you are desperate for cash or looking for a way to replace your income.

With everything ClickBank has to offer, reliable tracking and payouts, secure payment processing, global presence, extensive affiliate network, and so forth, you can’t go wrong.

What About a Money-Back Guarantee?

A Money-back guarantee is not needed as it is free to join and become a member. Fees and payments are only taken or redacted once you start making money, other than the activation fee of course.

Nonetheless, they do have refund policies for those purchasing products from the marketplace, however, do make sure to read these policies before purchasing as they can and do differ depending on the product, vendors, and to a degree even the affiliates.


How To Make Money Online – Popular Options


Scam or Legit?

The program is most definitely legit, for a multitude of reasons such as the fact they have been around for decades, and has millions of users, both vendors, and affiliates alike. They even have a training program Spark by Clickbank.

Hundreds, if not thousands of products are sold in the marketplace to clients all over and they always deliver. Now do keep in mind that ClickBank itself is not responsible for the vendors, and as such quality of products and so forth rely solely on the vendors themselves.


What About Support?

24/7 Support is offered by Clickbank to their affiliates and their vendors. Getting information can be done in a few different ways including FAQ Pages, customer service lines, and so on. The customer service line is especially helpful to customers.

ClickBank Review – Pros

High commissions are offered to their affiliates with some going as high as 75%.

Signing up and getting started is easy and straightforward.

A Bunch of different languages is available to include everyone.

They have a rather convenient payment schedule.

The amount of products they have is astounding and everyone is bound to find something.

Massive amounts of money can be earned via ClickBank.

Products from Clickbank are some of the most profitable and highest converting platforms that there are in the online industry, not to mention a relatively good reputation.

A boat load of helpful articles is offered to both affiliates and vendors.

A separate program, Spark by ClickBank an affiliate training program, is available to affiliates and vendors of all levels.



The email support is not the best of quality and can be a bit slow.

With the massive amounts of products available, it is bound for some of them not to sell.

Some of the niches have a hefty amount of competition.

ClickBank is unfortunately the home of get-rich-quick products. Always make sure to do the proper research beforehand when it comes to promoting money-making opportunities.


Other Options Around?

ShareASale – A bit difficult for newbies to join but awesome products are available.

CJ Affiliate – Difficult to join and get approved by vendors but a huge variety of quality products.

Digistore24 – 100% Newbie friendly. Easy to get approved by both the Network and Vendors.



Clickbank is a great place to start if you are fairly new to marketing, whether it will be as an affiliate or a Vendor. Affiliates should always make a point to do some decent research on the products that they plan to promote. Use the statistics that are available to you and browse around Google to find out if the product has a good or bad reputation.

Make a point to test products before you start to promote them. I usually test Clickbank products on my social networks first to see if it has a positive or negative impact on individuals. You can also email a few friends or even get friends and family to give you their honest opinion before you implement your marketing strategy. Remember everyone is different and what you might see as a great product might just be a lousy one for others.

Being a successful affiliate has been just awesome, but a successful vendor is way better!

Clickbank makes it super easy to get your own product online and literally puts it in front of thousands of affiliates that are skilled enough to make tons of sales. Most people think that their only option is to become an affiliate and promote the Vendor’s product. If you have skills or knowledge that others can benefit from – then why not create your own product?

ClickBank Review – Features


What Does ClickBank Have to Offer for Vendors?

Vendors can submit their products to a very busy marketplace that is browsed by consumers and affiliates. ClickBank currently has thousands of affiliates that promote their products, most of them very experienced marketers.

ClickBank is a middle-man between vendors and customers, taking care of the payment confirmations, customer services, processing orders, and so forth. Of course, the program does take a processing fee, but working with them is much easier and allows you to avoid the headache of having to open a merchant account and take orders online.

Help in the form of articles that provide an understanding of what a vendor is and how to begin.

Vendors more often than not work with affiliates and even have more than just a single product to sell, thus the reason why ClickBank offers helpful articles that teach a person how to do so.

A bunch of tools are provided to help members reach their goals and do their work, but understanding how to and when to use what tools is a tricky business, and as such, ClickBank offers a wide range of articles to explain how their tools work.


What Does ClickBank have to Offer for Affiliates?

The ClickBank marketplace offers all kinds of products in all kinds of niches from archaic to new, to popular, and as an affiliate, you can browse these products and find one or more to promote.

The importance of marketing tools is known by vendors, which is why they provide all their affiliates with marketing materials such as banners, sales letters, or even in some cases, email marketing campaign letters.

Understanding what it is to be an affiliate is just as important, which is why Clickbank offers articles on a wide range of topics to help get you started, including articles on how to get started.

All kinds of tools are provided, including reporting and tracking tools.

More articles are provided for detailed General Account Help.

The Marketplace

A Marketplace such as the one ClickBank has, is an online space where vendors sell products and affiliates market them to earn commissions. In short, vendors sell their products, and affiliates promote them.

Both vendors and affiliates are not limited to a single product, and as vendors can sell more than one, affiliates can choose to promote more than one as well. It’s simple really, just pick a product, generate the Hoplink, start promoting, and start earning.

Finding products in the marketplace can be done in several ways including;

Basic search – A simple search bar at the top of the page that will yield you the basic search results.

Advanced Search – Located beside the basic search bar, this technique gives you the ability to do a refined search that yields specific products.

Improving Search Results – Refine or broaden your search results with the use of characters (*?*~).

Sorting Search Results – A Filter sidebar will appear once you have made your search, allowing you to get more specific products.

Attributes – A Second sidebar will appear consisting of attributes that can help shorten a list even more.

Categories – Categories allow you to search for item-specific results such as sports categories, or health and wellness.

Resources – Tools and features provided that will help one understand and view the marketplace.

Understanding the ClickBank Marketplace Statistics

The following information is provided in the statistics section:

Initial $/sale – The average amount that affiliates can earn for every sale made of a vendor’s product.

Grav (Gravity) – A calculation consisting of all commissions made by varying affiliates for a single product over 12 weeks. This information gives a person an idea of which products are selling. Keep in mind the higher the gravity, the more competition to go up against so do not choose something that is too loaded.


Marketplace Categories

Now I am not writing a spelling bee competition list and as such I will only list some of the sub-categories available with ClickBank plus the main category to which it belongs.

  • Health and Beauty – As Seen On TV
  • Economics – Business and Investing
  • Baking – Cooking, Food, and Wine
  • Student Loans – Education
  • General – Fiction
  • Fashion – Arts and Entertainment
  • American Football – Betting System
