Let me guess. You’re promoting a product on Clickbank and you never bothered collecting affiliate emails. Now you want to contact your clickbank affiliates. Problem is, it’s not easy. Here’s a quick method that works…but requires some effort.
Dive into your Google Analytics (or whatever stats system you have installed) to see what sites are referring traffic. Visit those sites and check for Clickbank links to confirm they’re promoting your offer. At this point you can do one of the following:
- If the site has a contact form, use it. If it doesn’t…
- Perform a whois search on the domain. This will reveal the owner and their administrative and technical email addresses. That will give you a way to contact them via email.
Here’s a simple query you can use to get whois data fast:
Just replace domain.com with the affiliate’s domain you need to contact.
This process is time consuming. It might be beneficial to simply export the referring sites from your analytics program and outsource the WHOIS and emailing duties to someone at oDesk, Elance, vWorker or MTurk.
Finally, start collecting affiliate emails in return for affiliate tools. Look at Affiliate Page Pro or Adrian Ling’s EasyClickMate. Both will let you add affiliates to your AutoResponder system so you can maintain contact with them on a frequent basis.
