Eating for Energy Affiliate Hoplink Instructions

Once you have signed up at clickbank for an affiliate account (it's free, just go to the: Clickbank Sign Up Instructions), then you are ready to start promoting and marketing the ebook.

Marketing Eating for Energy is simple. All you do is put special links on your webpages or in your newsletters to send traffic to the EatingforEnergy.ca website. These links are called "CLICKBANK HOPLINKS" and they are important because this is how Clickbank keeps track of the traffic you send to EatingforEnergy.ca and gives you credit for the sales you generate.

So the very first step after you have signed up for your clickbank account is to understand how to make a hoplink. Keep in mind, if you make your link incorrectly, that is kind of like putting an ad in the yellow pages and using the wrong phone number! (YOU are responsible to make sure your hoplinks are coded correctly!!!! )

Here is how to correctly make your hoplink:

The current standard clickbank hoplink format is:

http://AFFILIATE.publisher.hop.clickbank.net

"mp3trainer" is our publisher (product) name, so that looks like this:

http://AFFILIATE.mp3trainer.hop.clickbank.net

So now, all you have to do is insert YOUR clickbank affiliate nickname in the place where the "AFFILIATE" is located.

For example, if your affiliate nickname is yurielkaim (hint: it's NOT - use YOUR nickname, this is just an example!!!!!), then the hoplink would look like this:

http://yurielkaim.mp3trainer.hop.clickbank.net

That's all there is to it. When someone clicks through YOUR hoplink, they are redirected to www.EatingforEnergy.ca and a "cookie" (a small tracking file) is dropped onto the computer of the visitor. This "marks" that visitor as coming from your referral.

Clickbank uses 60 day cookies, so that means if the people you send to EatingforEnergy.ca purchase that day or if they return any time within the next 60 days, you will get the commission for the sale (currently 75% commission rate of net sale, or approximately $29 to $72 - depending if the upsell is purchased).

I have one last suggestion. If you are using hoplinks on a web page, it is best you use a "DISPLAY URL" of www.EatingforEnergy.ca rather than exposing the actual clickbank hoplink. Tests have shown that when people realize they are "being sold something" on a commission basis (as opposed to simply getting a "recommendation" from an independent 3rd party), the conversion rates may drop, therefore it's best to "hide" your affiliate hoplink in your HTML code and use www.EatingforEnergy.ca as the display link.

Some advanced internet marketers even use "link cloaking" for this reason (and other reasons), but that will have to be the subject of another article.

If you have any questions about making hoplinks, whatsoever, please CONTACT ME any time! I am not just the creator of Eating for Energy, I am also the affiliate program manager and an expert internet marketing consultant and I am here to help.
