Clickbank's New HOT Affiliate Marketplace Competitor|RAP

Is it possible that Rapid Action Profits 'RAP'will soon become Clickbank's TOP competitor?

SecureDL WordPress Plugin
You've heard of marketplaces like ClickBank, and others, selling products, offering affiliates to promote individual products that they offer - to allow affiliates to earn unthinkably incomes every single month!

Besides the money... why else do affiliates and vendors use these marketplaces?

Simplicity and ease of use!

Everything they'll need is in one place. Affiliates know they can find *something* and vendors know that listing their product at $50 should help them to recruit people to help them sell it.

Problem is, especially for the new affiliate marketer, you not only have to wait at least two weeks between paychecks, Clickbank also has additional requirements such as -- having 5 different buyers with credit cards and the like. As a result, if affiliates don't make more sales fast enough, they may watch their account slowly be penalized back down to $0. It's frustrating!

The buzz circulating around I'm hearing is Move Over Clickbank, there's a new kid in town!

Why? Well, with Rapbank...there's finally a much easier way.

Today I had the opportunity to poke around and get a good look at Rapbank -- and it sure has some features and benefits that will be readily welcomed by both affiliates and vendors.

You've probably heard about instant commission products, right?

They solve all these problems by sending payments directly to your PayPal account. Instead of getting a cut of total sales after who knows how long, you get full sales every so many (ie., a 50% commission payout every other sale).

But, until now, there's been no single marketplace for this kind of affiliate product. Some have tried, but it took too much effort for the vendors... often with large inventories to manage -- to get their products into the system.

You probably noticed I wrote "until now" above, right?

That's because there's finally a solution that will make everyone happy.

* The vendors can automatically upload all their products in one fell swoop.

* Affiliates only need a single affiliate id in order to sign up for all the products in one spot.

Top 6 Reasons Rapbank Could Become Clickbank's Toughest Competitor

1. Instant commissions via PayPal - there's no waiting 2-4 weeks for payout from Clickbank (EVERYONE loves instant commissions).

2. Rapbank's exclusive reporting shows which products are getting a lot of traffic over past 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 1 month and more.

3. Rapbank provides the ability to promote an actual page or category on the marketplace - and affiliates have the potential to get paid even if a different product is chosen (powerful feature).

4. Affiliates have the capability of promoting a single product directly - sending them straight to the vendor's site

5. Rapbank's instant integration, upload and product reports features for those who actually have RapidActionProfits as their sales and affiliate marketing system.

6. Rapbank offers a global affiliate center, where stats can be viewed in one location. Unlike Clickbank, searching through affiliate programs to find a good "instant commission product" is much easier and less time consuming.

Sooo -- What do you think ... Could Rapbank jump ahead of Clickbank?

Check it out, comeback and weigh in with your thoughts on this...

It's FREE to join and worth your time to learn more about this HOT new affiliate marketplace.

Oh, I do want to mention there is an upgrade option (isn't there always) ... but the extra features that come with the upgrades are well beyond the basic membership. While it's in Beta Launch until April 1, 2010 - the site is offering an over 50% off on upgrades!

New Top 10 Free Website Traffic Generation Methods | Willie Crawford

Today, I want to share with you an article written by Willie Crawford. Willie is sharing his grand expertise and 'New Top 10 Free Website Traffic Methods' in Part I of his training series -- to TEACH online marketers how to generate more website traffic. Subscription to remaining training series can be found at the end of his article.


My New Top 10 Free Website Traffic Generation Methods - Part 1
Copyright 2010 by Willie Crawford

In 2008, I wrote an ebook that revealed my most effective
methods of generating free website traffic. As online
conditions and technologies change, I feel it's now time
to update that ebook.

However, instead of revealing my new top 10 free website
traffic generation methods in ebook format, I'm going to do
it in a 10-part article series.

While I do list these methods in order of my preference,
it's not necessarily by which ones produce the most traffic.
Instead, I list them also considering which produce the
highest quality traffic, and therefore adds the most to my

Let's get started...

My number one favorite method of generating free website
traffic is via an affiliate program. I like releasing
simple, inexpensive products that pay as much as 100%
commission on the front-end. Properly done, this can create
thousands of affiliates all working frantically to send you
highly-qualified BUYING traffic.

They find and send you traffic that you wouldn’t otherwise
have, and you reward them for doing so.

If you'd like to see a live example of how I do this, visit: The product there is a
$17 audio/ebook combination where I pay affiliates 100%
commission. That ebook is called "The Secrets To Selling
More Big Ticket Products" and is an MP3 and PDF transcript
where I share exactly how I do that :-)

There are a number of keys to making this most effective,
and I see many people who attempt this tactic missing
some of the most important elements. Those keys are:

1) You want to make managing the whole system as easy
as possible. If your system is too burdensome, you won't
use it for very long. I use the Rapid Action Profits
system, developed by my friend Sid Hale, to manage this
affiliate program. I use it because once I set up a site,
RAP makes management practically hands-free. The script
can be configured to pay any percentage commission that you
desire on a front-end and/or back-end product.

The beauty of the system is that when a sale is made,
the affiliate is paid instantly directly to their Paypal
account, and the customer is redirected to a download
page. At that point, my affiliate has sent me that
prized traffic, but as importantly, is also building me
a mailing list.

2) You need to also have a good back-end product in-place.
I typically have a second product that I offer
immediately after that first sale. You can offer
affiliates any percentage commission on this sale,
and I often don't offer any since I've given them all
of the money from the front-end sale.

The key though, is that if you do offer a back-end
product (or one-time-offer) you will often get a major
percentage of customer take it. So, if you don't have
that offer in place, you're leaving behind much of
your profits.

3) You need to have follow-up in place. It does little
good to build that list if you don't later follow-up
with them. Another reason that I like using Rapid
Action Profits is that it builds a database right within
the software.

Since some web hosting companies limit the number of
emails that you can send from their servers (at one time),
RAP also offers the capability for automatically
building your list on a third-party system (such as or

I have at least 30 sites built using RAP. Those are all
traffic generation systems. Can you tell that I like
RAP? You should check out RAP at

4) Here's where a lot of people using this traffic
generation method cut corners, and fail...

You need to give affiliates lots of great tools so that
it's really, REALLY easy for them to register as
affiliates and then promote like crazy.

Many of your affiliates won't feel comfortable creating
tools on their own. So, if you don't give them the
tools, they'll end up doing nothing. Tools should
- Banners in a variety of sizes
- Solo emails
- Blog posts
- Tweets
- Classified ads (suitable for Google AdWords)

The tools should have the affiliates’ links automatically
inserted in the proper places - something RAP handles
beautifully. If you force your affiliates to have to
track down links, and then manually edit the tools you
offer, many won’t bother.

5) Here's how you make your traffic generator go viral...

Invite your customers to become affiliates after they
purchase. I've seen many merchants put links to their
affiliate program right on the sales page. I don't like
this technique since I feel that it can distract customers
that your affiliates worked hard to send you. So, I
don't feel that it's fair.

Instead, I put links to sign-up for the affiliate
program on my product download pages, AND often in the
products themselves. Simply explain to customers that
they can register, promote the product, and earn instant
commissions. This is very effective, especially when
you have all of those great affiliate tools in place.

It's also very effective because the INSTANT commissions
helps those who need the cash now!

Ok, I've just shared with you my very favorite method
for generating free website traffic. I basically get
others to send me the traffic, and then I have tools
in place to leverage that traffic.

Stay tuned for part 2.
