If you are an affiliate marketer then you must have already heard about wealthy affiliate and ClickBank. If not, then I recommend you read their detailed reviews. Wealthy Affiliate Review is available here and Clickbank review is available here. You must be wondering if there is a head-to-head fight then who will win. Today, we are going to exactly find out that. So get your popcorn, sit in your chair and get ready for the fight. Here it comes… Wealthy Affiliate vs Clickbank …. Roll, Camera, Action…
The match begins.
Round 1: Affiliate Product Availability
Clickbank has thousands of products under various categories under their belt whereas Wealthy Affiliate technically has only one product that can be promoted.
There are hundreds of vendors with thousands of products on ClickBank. Then there are thousands of affiliate marketers promoting those products.
On Wealthy affiliate, people are either promoting wealthy affiliate itself or their own affiliate products (that may include products from ClickBank too 😉 ).
Though wealthy affiliate does not have its own product listing, it can recommend products from other affiliate networks that can be sold on your websites that are created and hosted within wealthy affiliate platform
Winner of Round 1: Clickbank, due to the sheer number of products available for the affiliate marketers
Round 2: Product Selling Abilities
If you have a product and you want other affiliate marketers to promote it then you can do it only on ClickBank. The wealthy affiliate does not have an avenue for vendors.
There are other platforms like jvzoo, CJ where you can become a vendor and list your products too, but we will limit this fight to Clickbank and wealthy affiliate
Winner of Round 2: Clickbank. It was almost a knockout but WA managed to get up. Let’s see what happens in the next round.
Round 3: Training
Clickbank has two main tracks of training. One for the affiliate marketers and the other for the vendors who wish to sell their products. Both courses have detailed step by step instructions on how to succeed in the respective tracks.
In addition, there are extra pieces of training on FB, google marketing and other informative courses on traffic. They do have weekly live sessions with big influencers in the industry giving tips, training, and motivation. The quality of the training is amazing and easy to understand. Clickbank has private user forums where members can discuss their issues and help each other.
On Wealthy Affiliate the training focuses only on how to succeed in your affiliate marketing. The trainings are extremely detailed and action-oriented. If the steps in the training are followed to the T with patience and dedication then you should become a successful affiliate marketer. Wealthy affiliate too has weekly training like ClickBank.
WA has more training than ClickBank and it is action-oriented, however, some parts of the training are a little outdated. They are staying updated with their weekly live training though. They have a big repository of live training happened over the past many years. All these trainings are available with your membership. WA also has a very helpful community who helps you in your difficult times.
Winner of Round 3: Tie. WA would have won this round but didn’t win because of a few outdated training.
Round 4: Resources For Affiliate Marketers
To become a successful affiliate marketer, you need many things along with the training. While both platforms have great training, only WA has the resources needed. In fact, here is a brief comparison of the resources that WA offers. This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many more features than mentioned below. You can try them for free for 7 days. Just create a free account and get started. No credit card required.
Technically you can create websites with ClickBank too but that is available as an upsell. There is a 30 refund but ClickBank is not Free. I will explain that in the next round.
Winner of Round 4: Wealthy Affiliate
Round 5: Pricing
WA’s all inclusive monthly membership is $49. If you go for a yearly membership then it becomes very much affordable. It comes to less than a dollar per day. And do you know the best part? you get everything that is on the platform in your membership. There are no upsells.
On the other hand, Clickbank pricing is $47 month just for the training module and live training. To get the rest of the resources there are upsells which go as high as $594 in addition to the $47 that you are paying per month.
Winner for Round 5: Wealthy Affiliate
The final score is 2-2.
Which One Should I Go For?
I see that you are confused because the final score is 2-2. But if you pay attention then round 3, 4 and 5 are more important than first two rounds for affiliate marketers. There is a clear winner there, Wealthy Affiliate. You can try the platform for free for 7 days. No credit card required.
But the winner will differ depending on who you are and what you are looking for.
