Expand Your Horizons – Sell Your Professional Services Through ClickBank
ClickBank allows its merchants to sell many different types of digital products, but with the proviso that they must be deliverable entirely over the internet within 24 hours of purchase.
Most merchants focus on downloadable products (especially books and software applications), although ClickBank can equally be used to sell digital content delivered by email or via membership websites and other online communities. But there is one category not usually associated with ClickBank – services.
In theory, the need to deliver within ClickBank’s stipulated 24-hour time frame excludes the sale of services.
