When I logged into Clickbank this morning, I read about improvements that ClickBank is making to it's Marketplace this month. The primary goal is to make it easier for affiliates to find products to promote.
The improved Marketplace uses completely new categories and subcategories, which are more specific and descriptive. We have attempted to categorize your site based on information in your account and on your HopLink Target URL page.
All clients are limited to one category and subcategory.
For those affiliates who were tired of finding the same product listed in every category under the sun, this is a massive improvement.
Likewise, the changes will be beneficial to Clickbank merchants who before had their products unnecessarily pushed ‘down the list' by other merchants who placed their products in irrelevant categories.
For example, there's actually an Affiliate Marketing category now, under ‘Ebusiness'. Here's the full list of eBusiness categories.
E-business & E-marketing
* Affiliate Marketing
* Article Marketing
* Blog Marketing
* Classified Advertising
* E-commerce Operations
* E-zine Strategies
* Email Marketing
* Market Research
* Niche Marketing
* Paid Surveys
* Pay Per Click Advertising
* SEM & SEO
* Social Media Marketing
* Video Marketing
You can see the full list of categories here.
Are you as thrilled about these improvements as I am? Yes, no, why?
