UPDATE 9 October 2012 – HopAd Builder is NO LONGER AVAILABLE, NOR is the Hop Ad WordPress Plugin!
If you are into Affiliate Marketing, chances are that you have an account with Clickbank. If not, you should definitely check it out!
Recently I had an email in my inbox from a fellow Internet Marketer, Richard Legg, about a pretty new and exciting Clickbank tool called “Hop Ad Builder”.
You can access Hop Ad Builder through your ClickBank account (Account Settings/HopAd Builder), and with it you can actually create ads for ClickBank products to display on your Web site or blog. These Ads look a bit like Google Adsense ads, but instead of just getting a few cents per click, if somebody buys something through your link you will be getting the full ClickBank affiliate commission, which is up to 75% of the sale ($20, $30, $40… per sale!). I think that’s pretty neat, don’t you?
Now, that’s not all, though. Because Hop Ad Builder is still just a little bit technical, and you will have to insert a whole bunch of code into your website or blog, Richard Legg and a couple of his friends have developed a WordPress Plugin to make the whole process easier and more flexible – the WP HopAd WordPress Plugin! And you can get it for FREE!!!!
With this plugin you can quickly and easily create and edit ClickBank ads through your WordPress admin. You simply have to install the plugin like any other plugin (download, unzip, upload to your wp-plugins folder), then activate it through your wp-admin and start creating your first ad! And you know how the Google Adsense ads always say “Ads by Google”? Well, with the WP HopAd WordPress Plugin you can actually decide what you want to name your ads, too! What works very well is, for example, to have “Recommended Downloads” or something like that above your ads. That way, they look like genuine recommendations! You can change background color, text color, font etc, so the whole thing is really flexible.
It is also very easy to use, Richard and his friends have put up a couple of videos explaining it, so really, there is nothing to lose! You should go and grab this nifty plugin as soon as you can! I have used it on my blog Healthy Diet Weight Loss, if you want to have a look. I will still have to install it on my blog here 😉
I hope I made your day today! Give me a shout if you have any questions.
