Here are some more detailed instructions.


Clickbank is the company that processes all of our credit card transactions, they also provide affiliate program tracking. Your commission cheques will be sent out every two weeks by Clickbank once you reach your designated earnings minimum.

In order to promote "How to Sell Stock Photos", you must first become a Clickbank Affiliate.

If you haven't yet got an account at Clickbank, you need to do that now. Simply click the following link and a new window will open up that takes you to their sign up form.

Clickbank Sign Up

On the sign up page, you need to fill in your personal details and pick your own special clickbank account name, also called a "nickname". Remember this name!

After you've set up your clickbank account, then you're ready to start promoting "How to Sell Stock Photos" through your special affiliate "hoplinks", then when someone purchases our eBook after coming through your link, you will receive 50% commission on each net sale ($21.24).

Marketing "How to Sell Stock Photos" is easy. All you need to do is put special affiliate links on your website, blog or newsletters to send traffic to our website. These links are called "Clickbank Hoplinks" which is how Clickbank keeps track of the visitors you send to us and this gives you credit for the sales you generate through your link.

So now you need to know how to make a "hoplink". You can either use the link at the top of this page that says "JOIN OUR AFFILIATE PROGRAM" and input your new nickname, or you can do this via the Marketplace at Clickbank.

Creating Hoplinks

First of all you need to find the product in the Clickbank Marketplace. Here it is...


Then you simply click "promote" and a new box will open. Where it says "Account Nickname" simply put in your nickname that you assigned yourself when you joined Clickbank. You can also add tracking info in the second box that will allow you to track where sales came from.

For example, if you were putting this link on your blog, you could put "stockblog" as your tracking ID. If it was to go in a specific campaign on your website, you would need to create a new hoplink with a different tracking ID such as "websitestock". This way, when you receive sales info from Clickbank, you can see at a glance where those sales came from which helps with your marketing techniques.

Once you have done that, click "create" and you are presented with two links. One is a straight forward link which looks like this (Do not use this link, this is MY affiliate code):

The other is already embedded into some HTML for you to place directly onto your site or blog:

<a href="" target="_top">Click Here!</a>

Where it says Click Here in red, that is the anchor text which will show up on your site, a good way of hiding the affiliate link and of course you can change this to whatever you want.

We suggest something like "Buy How to Sell Stock Photos Here", "How to Sell Stock Photos" or "".

That's all there is to it.

Now when someone clicks through YOUR hoplink, they are redirected to and a "cookie" (a small tracking file) is placed onto the computer of the visitor. This "links" you to that visitor as your referral.

Clickbank uses full 60 day cookies, which means if the people you send to purchase that day, or even if they return any time within the next 60 days, you get the commission for the sale (currently 50% net commission or approximately $21.24).

If you need any assistance with this please contact either myself or the help desk at Clickbank.

Anti-Spam Policy: Please be aware that we will not tolerate affiliates who promote our product through illegal or unethical techniques. You should also know that ClickBank may terminate your affiliate account with them, and that you will not be allowed to promote our product if you do so.

Thank You.
