- Step 1: Sign up and get your ClickBank ID.
This process takes less than 60 seconds and is completely painless. In case you don't know what ClickBank is, it's a very well known online marketplace that allows people like me who are selling stuff (vendors) to automatically give commissions to people like you who promote their products (affiliates).
If you don't want to use ClickBank (not recommended), the product is also available on E-Junkie.com.
- Step 2: Create your affiliate link.
You can either send people to my sales page (recommended), or directly to my order form.
To link to my sales page, replace the XXXXX's below with your ClickBank ID:
If you want to create your own sales page and just have your affiliate link applied to a buy button of your choice, you can link directly to my order form. Replace the XXXXX's in the URL below with your ClickBank ID:
If you want to get advanced tracking features, this page "all about hoplinks" might help you.
- Step 3 (optional): Sign up on the affiliate notification e-mail list
This makes it
so that I can keep in contact with you just in case there is anything new added to the product or if there will be any special promotions, etc. This will be important in the future. I send out VERY FEW emails to this list (maybe 1 email per year, if that), so you don't have to worry about having your inbox flooded.
- Step 4: Read all of the rules below on this page, and then start promoting the E-Book with your affiliate link! Whenever someone clicks your link and makes a purchase, you will get a commission and be notified of your sale by logging into ClickBank.com and checking your stats.
Additional information can be found at the ClickBank Affiliate Help page, if you need it.
How To Not Get Banned: Do's and Don'ts
ACCEPTABLE ways to promote my product:
- Feel free to use images from the main sales page or in the ebook itself to make your content more dynamic - however, only use the images marked with "Evan Sharboneau" in the fine print. I'm fine with affiliates using my images to promote the ebook, but the other photographers that have copyright status on their images may not want you to use them; if you must use their images, then you must get their permission before you use them for your purposes, just as I have done.
- To make it easy for you, I've created a zip folder of images you can use in your marketing material.
All of the images inside of the zip folder directly relate to Trick Photography and Special Effects and have been created by myself.
- If you have a blog or website, you can use the banner images below to place in the side bar or in a blog post.
Have the image be clickable with your unique affiliate link.
- If you have an e-mail list or newsletter, you can send out recommendations for the e-book.
- If you have a blog, you can write a review of the e-book and then refer your readers to your affiliate link.
- Creating Pay-Per-Click Advertisements to send traffic to your affiliate link. Here is a list of keywords.
If you need to disable the auto-play video, just add ?autoplay=0 to the end of your affiliate link.
- Commenting or updating your status on a forum or social media site recommending the e-book. Just be sure your comment is genuine and authentic and actually relates to what you are commenting on. Writing dozens of comments, however, could be seen as spam - please do not do that!
NON-Acceptable ways to promote my product:
- Spamming of any kind.
- Blasting out unsolicited e-mail messages to an e-mail list that you do not own (ie. spam).
- Writing dozens of comments on social media networks (esspecially YouTube) with your affiliate link, your video review, or anything similar. This is spam, and affiliates who do this A) do not get ANY sales, and B) get their affiliate ID de-activated.
- Impersonating my domain name in your email address (ie. firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.) or a domain that belongs to someone else other than yourself. Use your own email address and do not impersonate.
- Anything that has false advertising. This includes advertising or falsely advertising the product as a "free download" in order to get clicks, or saying that my product or website will be removed from the internet after a certain period of time.
- Illegally using copyrighted images that have been created by other photographers other than myself in your marketing material without having their permission, especially if the images are completely unrelated to what is taught inside the course, and especially if you are using hundreds or thousands of them. If there is an image you find online that relates to a technique taught inside the course and you want to use it for your marketing, just make sure the image is marked with a Creative Commons license, or ask for their permission to use it - or, better yet, create your own.
- Posting your affiliate links in places that do now allow them. Read the legal Terms of Conditions on the site/forum you want to promote on to be sure the site doesn't frown upon affiliate links.
- Using dishonest SEO practices (ex. gathering hundreds of names of photographers and then creating affiliate redirection links where each URL that has been created includes their name in the URL in order to try to get people to click on your link in search engine results when they were searching for a different photographer. Same with creating dozens of YouTube videos with other photographer's names in the title, yet the video advertises my course - don't do that, it is spam/abuse).
- You are not legally allowed to resell this product through means other than this affiliate program. You are not legally allowed to resell this product on e-commerce websites (example: eBay), and if you do, the listing will just get reported and removed (usually within a few days).
- The bottom line: Affiliates who promote my product through spam, illegal, or misleading techniques will not be tolerated. Your affiliate link will be deactivated and you will no longer be able to promote my product.

any questions regarding any of these guidelines, email me.
