Click Bank Cons
The first draw back would be that you only keep up to 75% of the sale, so a vendor is taking money off the back of your work. You cannot edit the “pitch page” also known as a sales or landing page, this means if the page has a bad conversion rate, you cannot amend or experiment with it. Also because you can not edit landing page that means you cannot put in your name, or personalise it to begin building your credibility in a specific field. There is no community feel about the website, and further more no guidance on how to market, so you are on your own. (Not good if you are a complete newbie.) Any email the signs ups a vendor gets, is stored in there database, so there is no opportunity to start building your own list, and if a vendor makes a “back end sale” using the email you will not be credited for this. Click Bank does not have a referral system in place.Click Bank Pros
Click Bank has been established for x years now and offers a fantastic range of digital products for affiliates to market, 10,000 + . A digital product is something that upon purchasing your customer can download instantly, for example; eBooks, software etc.. As a click bank affiliate you would search through digital products until you find something you want to market. You would then create a “hop link” which is a url with your Click Bank “nick name” embedded and market. On making a sale the affiliate keeps up to 75% of the purchase amount. The money is paid into your Click Bank account, and when you make $100 you can release. The big benefits with this is you don not have to set up your own website, or design/buy your own products to resell. This really is a great place to get started. Click Bank is simple to use, and you can begin marketing instantly. (if you know how)Money On A Plate Pros
Money On A Plate is the new kid on the block and is 100% unique in what it offers affiliates. Firstly I will start by telling you this website boasts an inventory of 200,000+ digital products. As a Money On A Plate affiliate you would search through digital products until you find something you want to market, you would then add this to your “My eSales” and in turn you would receive a unique url with your affiliate I.D. for that product. On making a sale the affiliate keeps 100% of the purchase amount, the “purchase” button is linked straight to the affiliates PayPal account. There are ready made landing pages for products, however the affiliate does have the ability to edit these pages, and even set the selling price. Money On A Plate also provides the affiliate with vast resources and tutorials for marketing. For example; pre written content, links for free sites the affiliate can generate traffic from and videos on how to use these sites, etc.. Money On A Plate also allows the affiliate to insert an email form into landing pages, so the affiliate can build there own email list and even set up auto emails within the site to them. On top of all that there is a much more personal and community feel about this website with one to one support, live chat, forums, creating profiles and marketers chatting and helping one another. Money On A Plate also offers members the chance to build a residual income by referring new members.Money On A Plate Cons
As this website does not have vendors to upload the products they do it themselves. This means there full inventory has not (or at least was not at the time I wrote this) yet been uploaded. They upload products for affiliates upon request. This website is all new, introducing new software and features for the affiliate that have not been seen before. As a result the website itself is new and only launched officially in June 2009. I found the website a bit daunting at first, simply because there is so much on offer. However I would note after feeling my way around and getting some support from “The Team”, I quickly became comfortable using different functions/features within the website.Conclusion
I tried my best to keep this a completely unbiased article review but found it hard as Money On A Plate offers so much more. So I would have to say If you are looking to work from home both these websites are worth checking out and have a lot to offer. However my personal preference would be Money On A Plate, as they offered so much more and were there to guide/help me when I got stuck.
