New ClickBank Powered Platform enables virtually anyone to build an online
business around their knowledge, passions, hobbies and work experiences - with
little or no technical skill required.
BOISE, Idaho,  Feb. 19, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- ClickBank  has once again turned
the traditional publishing industry on its head by empowering non-fiction
authors and "how-to" content creators. Today they announced the new  ClickBank
Powered Platform  as well as a suite of resources for starting, growing and
optimizing online information businesses. These resources are designed to give
everyday experts the ability to turn their knowledge into a small business and
earn more from their efforts.  

Sam Rodman, one of ClickBank's long-time clients weighs in,  "I built a
successful office cleaning business and realized that I could fund my retirement
by teaching others how to start and build a business like mine. I've been
selling my products on ClickBank for over 11 years, but getting started was
tough. Being new to selling online, I had to overcome many technical hurdles
before ever making my first sale. The new ClickBank Powered Platform removes all
of those hurdles and is exactIy what new infopreneurs need. It walks you through
the process step-by-step so you can get your business up and running fast. I
wish it had been around when I was starting out."

Founded in 1998, ClickBank has long been the go-to platform for everyday experts
to reach customers and  monetize their knowledge  online. Thousands of these
information entrepreneurs (infopreneurs) have turned to ClickBank to sell their
expertise. Collectively, they've built a portfolio of over 60,000 products
across thousands of niches that teach others a spectrum of skills-from
decorating cakes or making your own wine to starting your own catering business
or building a chicken coop.

But being an infopreneur and building an online information business can often
mean significant guesswork on how to develop products, reach and retain
customers, increase conversions and grow your business. Additionally, it can
require significant technical knowledge and resources to build and host an
effective website and integrate technologies to deliver digital products, manage
transactions and keep in touch with prospects and customers.

Late last year, ClickBank set out to lower these barriers to entry and make the
information business model accessible to even more infopreneurs. With 15 years
of empirical data, ClickBank likely has more insight into building profitable
information businesses than any other company. The company used this data to
reveal the most effective strategies and tactics and developed a blueprint for
infopreneurs to follow that will give them the greatest chance of success.   

The ClickBank Powered Platform is a turnkey web-based toolset built around that
blueprint. This innovative all-in-one solution is designed to help infopreneurs
create, grow, optimize and run their information businesses. With this new
subscription-based offering, infopreneurs will no longer have to cobble together
several other tools just to begin selling their products through ClickBank.
Hosting, web page development, email management, product delivery and
secure/member pages are packaged together in a single easy-to-use solution.

Together with the new ClickBank Powered Platform, ClickBank rolled out a new
website, knowledge base and rich training materials designed to educate everyday
experts about the infopreneurial business model and to give them the confidence
and resources necessary to take the first step.

With the introduction of this suite of resources, ClickBank has made starting an
online information business easier than ever. Never before has there been such a
clear path to success, and never before has such a suite of resources been
available to support it. For anyone who has ever considered starting their own
online business, there's never been a better time.
