Affiliate Click Pal – It’s a Monster

Offer Closed

***

Today Friday 30th December at 6.00pm I’m running a final pre-release sale for Affiliate Click Pal (ACP).

Yes I know some people reading this thought they’d never see the day, but ACP is finally done.  (Those people who purchased in the pre-order sale several months ago will now be able to go back to their download page later today and grab the first release version of the completed script.)

It’s a monster.

What started off as a fairly small but entirely useful *little* script that allowed you to unify all your sites through a single ClickBank account is now a HUGE MONSTER of a script that incorporates all sorts of related things.

So…

It now has secure digital delivery – that wasn’t in the original plan.

It now creates secure order buttons for you – that wasn’t in the plan.

It has a built in autoresponder and broadcast mailer for both customers AND affiliates – that wasn’t in the plan.

It has built in integration with ImnicaMail, Aweber and Mailchimp – that wasn’t in the plan.

It now unifies multiple ClickBank accounts – that wasn’t in the plan.

It gives you full control over affiliates and their percentage commission via the use of multiple ClickBank accounts – that wasn’t in the plan.

It now uses secure download templates like SmartDD – that wasn’t in the plan.

Or you can optionally redirect buyers to a URL – that wasn’t in the plan.

It has a multi-level of granularity of control over both saleable items and affiliates – that wasn’t in the plan.

And there’s other stuff too.

I now look at this whole project and and I’ll openly say that my handling of it was one of the dumbest things I’ve ever done.  What I *should* have done is released the very small script that I originally promised and then built on it from there.

But what happened was I got the first small release version back and spotted a couple of minor issues with it, and then asked if we could just have this “one little thing” added to it…

And then this became a cycle for the next few weeks and eventually months.

The dang thing just got way bigger than I expected it to and I let it all get out of control.

I’m really sorry if you’re one of the people that bought this on pre-order expecting to get it a couple of weeks afterwards – I’ve apologised individually to people who’ve asked about it.

The good news is I’m *much* happier releasing this as it stands now than the original script I envisaged.  In fact the original script was planned to be very much like Easy Click Mate only better and at half the price.

Now it’s a much more well-endowed script that does some pretty cool stuff.

For example, just taking one of the key points from above.  Originally it was intended for you to be able to unify sales of multiple products across multiple sites through a single ClickBank account.  That alone would save you a small fortune in opening vendor accounts with ClickBank as you can now use the full 500 products available to an account but spread across lots of different sites.  Woohoo!

But then I realised that this meant that everything you sold would be at the same commission rate as it can only be done at the vendor account level.  What if you had some products you wanted to apply a 50% commission to, and others a 60% or 75% commission?  With ClickBank you can’t normally do that, so if you wanted to pay JV partners or super affiliates a higher rate of commission as a reward for promoting for you, it was impossible to do.

Until now.

Now you can open a second vendor account with ClickBank and set a different commission rate.  Then in ACP you specify that the item you’re selling should be linked to that vendor account instead and it all gets handled automatically.  You can also flip individual affiliates (or groups) between different commission rates any time you want to without them having to change their affiliate links.  ;-)

Today at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST), I’m running a final end-of-year sale and making ACP available for just $17.

There’s no doubt in my mind that this is a $97 product given the development time and effort that’s gone into it.  If you don’t get it today, then in the new year it will go on sale for a month at $27 during the launch period, then $47 and finally $97.

Now’s your chance to get it at a massive discount at only $17.

P.S.  In case you’re wondering, it’s NOT a WordPress plugin it’s a standalone script and so will need a touch more work to install as you have to create a database for it first.  It’s not hard to do (5 minutes or less) and well worth the little bit of one-off effort needed to centralise all your sales.

    Wow Frank, Looks awesome! Will you be giving comprehensive help files/videos as it seems that there will be a multitude of things that can be switched on and off etc?

    Looking forward to 6.00 pm GMT.

    And can I take this oppportunity of wishing you and yours a Happy and prosperous 2012.

      Hi Chris,

      You know what? It’s not that hard to use. I know I’m very close to it but even so with the learning I got from SmartDD, this is more of a multi-layer type of thing. After you’ve gone through the supplied quick start guide once, you’ll immediately see how it all hangs together when creating a simple saleable item.

      Then later you’ll find yourself making tweaks here and there as you become more comfortable with it. If there are any problems we haven’t hit then we’ll sort them out for you and make it all better.

      I’ll put together a whole pile of videos and more in-depth web-based guides in the new year but there should be enough in the PDF to get you going. I’ve added plenty of screen shots and explained what the most important sections are.

    Hey Frank.

    Another great plugin from the Plugin Great Man. I’ve bought soooo much good WP stuff from you that it’s becoming very hard to tell if I’ve already bought something from you in the past or not. I wish there was a list of everything that your offered and a way to tell what I’ve bought from you so that I could try NOT to buy something a second time.

    I’ve made the mistake of dropping all my Premium (e.g. paid good money for) WP Plugins into a single folder on my hard drive so now with all the great and growing number of Premium WP Plugins I own, it’s a bit of a chore to locate all the fantastic Frank Haywood plugins I have in my repertoire. I need a good way to organize those like I do my images. Hey, sounds like another coding project for you Frank. Hint, hint!!!

    Anyway, I’ll see if I can figure out if I bought this before and if not, I’ll try to be at my computer when it becomes available to pick it up today. Don’t know if I would every use it or not, but it’s too huge of a package to pass up. Besides, when I buy stuff that I don’t need, I usually find a use for it a few weeks later. And if I don’t buy it, I seem to almost always find a use for it soon after it’s no longer available.

    Happy New Year Frank, and here’s to a great launch today (raising glass).

      Hi James,

      And a very happy new year to you too. :-)

      One thing though. This isn’t a plugin this time round. We decided that it made more sense with this type of tool to make it a standalone script, but we HAVE talked about creating a plugin bridge for it which we’ll issue for free. Also undocumented at the moment is a way for it to talk to the Promo Tools Plugin I released (awww yeah), and we’ve also left the door open for integrating something new I’m releasing with one of my coaching students in January.

      That IS a plugin and you’ll love it I’m sure. It just *might* also solve the problem of where all your downloads are located if I can migrate my SmartDD stuff over to it which I’m pretty sure I can. ;-)

      Some good stuff coming!

      -Frank

    • I had the same problem so I add the name of the person I bought the item from at the end of the name just before the “dot” and the extension.

      I also set up a folder with the suppliers name on it and store the file in that.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi Frank

    This looks really good. I would just like to clarify something please, if this script is more for Clickbank Vendors selling their own products via Clickbank or is it useful for marketers looking to promote Clickbank products through various websites??

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    All the very best & a Happy New Year!

    Mike

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Mike,

      It’s for ClickBank vendors to sell their own products through ClickBank. It essentially allows a vendor to use a single ClickBank account across all their sites. At the moment the way CB works is you have to buy a new vendor account for every different web site you have. ACP will allow you to use a single CB account to sell just about every product you have.

      First off that saves you a pile of money in buying new vendor accounts, and secondly it will increase the gravity of your single account as you’re selling multiple products through it. Affiliates will spot this in the CB marketplace and it will attract more affiliate attention, sales and traffic. Muhahahaha! :roll:

    I am interested in this plugin but I have doubts about purchasing.
    You see, the last plugin I bought from you was the Clone & Backup and the Ticked I posted in support was answered almost a week later. You never responded to my post here. So….. you can guess my feelings. If you promise to take care of support requests within a maximum of 48 hs, I may think it over.
    Roberto

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Roberto,

      I’m sorry about that. There was a recent typhoon disaster in the Philippines where all my staff are based and hundreds of people were killed. Thankfully none of my staff or their families died but some were injured and hospitalised. Power and internet connections have been very flaky there this last week and so I’m not that surprised you got a bad response from the support desk.

      Please accept my apologies. With it being so close to Christmas and my concern with what was going on over there, I sort of didn’t bother looking at the support desk myself. I’ll keep that in mind if something like this happens in future.

    I’m one of those that pre-bought it June 24th and I know it will be worth the wait. Getting the Paypal, the Clickbank and basically a Smartdd replacement? what else can be in here. Can’t wait to get the download link from you and start playing with this one!

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Pol,

      Yeah, I’m really sorry about the wait and thank you for your patience. You should find your link is now active, and I’ll spend some time going through all the orders re-sending them out to everybody. :-)

      -Frank

      • Peter Dennery says:

        Hi, Frank.

        I’m glad to read that you’ll be sending download links to those of us who pre-ordered this script in June. It seems like it’s even more powerful than the original description. I have to presume the long wait is worth it!

        I’m anxious to check this script. What a great project for the first week of the year 2012!

        Happy new year to you, Frank. Here’s hoping it’s a great year for all of us.

        • Frank Haywood says:

          Hi Peter,

          Yep, done, and there’s something complementary to ACP being worked on right now. More news as I have it. ;-)

          And a Happy 2012 to you too.

          -Frank

  6. Gary Jenkins says:

    You’re right Frank, it is a monster. There’s lots more in this now than when I purchased the Presell. Can’t wait to check it out.

    Thanks,
    Gary

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Gary,

      Yeah I’m sorry about the delay and glad you you appreciate that it’s much better than I first intended it to be. I haven’t finished with it yet either. ;-) What I don’t want to do is make it too difficult to use. :roll:

      -Frank

  7. G’day Frank,

    Yep I am still alive and slowly getting back into things.

    I just want to echo what James said :
    I also wish there was a list of everything that I have bought and a way to download them with out having to find emails or bookmarks which I don’t have after all my puters where stolen.

    Hint Hint some one was going to send a list.
    And now I have discovered my PLAhh subscription was cancelled not sure what happened there except that it happened while I was in hospital.

    Now of to search Paypal and see if I bought this one.

    Wishing You and Your Family A Happy & Prosperous New Year Frank

    Regards
    Rob P.

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Rob,

      Well howdy! And Happy New Year! It’s nice to see you getting back into the swing of things. As am I. I’ll email you right after finishing this comment with either a list of your download pages, or I’ll re-send them all – it depends on how many there are as to what the best way to do it is – probably a list in your case? ;-)

      I’ve mentioned a few times while replying to a pile of comments today that I’m working on something else. The plan is if possible I’ll be able to migrate all the SmartDD stuff over to this new tool and you’ll be able to get everything there. We’ll see.

      It’s really nice to hear from you again. :-)

      -Frank

  8. WHEW – Just purchased – Nice to make it in time to get this one. YIPEE!

    I know what you mean about projects like this that continue to grow. It’s like they take on a life of their own. I have one that has been a year in production and is STILL in the incubator.

    Trouble is my local business web presence client base continues to grow and require more time so what was once a driving force has been relegated almost hobby status.

    Oh well, when I do get it done, I now have “Affiliate Click Pal” to use with it.

    All my best to you and yours Frank and all the people that comment here in your blog, hoping you all have safe, enjoyable New Years Celebrations.

    Mike C.

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Mike,

      Ahh truly the victim of your own success. As you say though it’s now been relegated to a hobby, it will just be an extra income source for you. It might be worth just putting a few days aside and giving it a big push to complete it and then another big push to get it out there and then it’s done and an extra income stream.

      That’s what it’s all about. Multiple Income Streams to give you income security if something goes wrong. ;-)

      Have a good one.

      -Frank

  9. David says:

    Hi Frank, know this is for digital product delivery, but is there anyway it could be used for physical products too? I don’t mean a whole e commerce/shopping site, but a site where I sell maybe just 1 or 2 physical items? After sale is made, instead of directing to download page, could it just go to a page that says “delivery being sent” for example?

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi David,

      No, as the current version is chiefly a ClickBank tool and CB don’t allow physical products other than a supplement to a digital delivery.

      However, watch this space in the next week or so. I have something in the pipe that just might do what you want it to.

      -Frank

  10. Steve Jared says:

    Hi- I bought this months ago. Please send the download link. Thanks,

    I’ve really been looking forward for this one,

    thanks so much for the quick re-release!!!
    and for such a great IM tool at bargain price!
    now to put it to good use!

    cheers

  13. Roderick Carter says:

    This thing is a beast! I’ve always sat at the end of my seat waiting to see what you might come up with next. I’m literally praying over here for the upgrade to SmartDD with these type of features. I love all the WP plugins you have to offer. SO I GOT MY EYES OPEN!!! LOL

    Thanks guy

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Roderick,

      Thanks for the kind words. Unified affiliate scheme coming shortly.
