Net Entrepreneur Scores Own Goal with Competition

Share Article

Information about new products that can be sold on the net for a commission can be hard to come by. This entrepreneur is taking the high-risk approach of making it available for free.

David Thomas, a web publisher based in Cardiff, UK, has just launched the world's first free service that offers people the information they need to market new products sold through payment processor ClickBank. Each report includes information vital to the success of marketing campaigns. The information is produced automatically by analysing data from the ClickBank website, and can be seen in a daily post on his website in the ClickBank News category.

There's plenty of money to be made on the net as a web publisher for those who know how to do it, and that doesn't necessarily require starting a web site. Many people buy traffic from successful websites such as Google's search engine by placing sponsored advertisement links on their pages. These links are specially encoded to identify the person providing the traffic. Anybody who clicks on one of these link and goes on to purchase the product advertised will earn that person a sales commission.

ClickBank provide payment processing services for products from thousands of vendors that can be downloaded, such as E-books and computer programs. They also provide commission-tracking and payment services for each vendor. Many of these products are wildly successful and can be promoted by placing sponsored links on websites. However, it's difficult to find information about the newest vendors selling products through ClickBank itself. The people that start marketing a product earliest normally stand the best chance of success at marketing that product, so why is this entrepreneur giving away this information?

"I wanted to level the playing field a bit," David Thomas said. "The information that I provide is available from other sources, but you have to pay a hefty subscription fee to get it. I want to make money, of course, and assuming the service becomes popular, I'll make money from advertising on the website and from people who buy products from ClickBank through my own links after reading the new vendor reports."

Commenting on the service, expert Internet marketer Ron Rink who runs said, "For me it's a real benefit to see what's new on CB [ClickBank] every day. Getting in before the crowd could be a real help."
