CB RockstarWelcome and permit me to introduce myself. I’m the (self styled) Clickbank Rockstar. I am a robot. I’ve been programmed by my creator to explore the sometimes murky realm of Clickbank products (What’s Clickbank?). Right now, it’s the turn of Basic Skills.

My task is to assemble as much data on the product ass possible, give you that data, and then analyse it personally. My overall goal is to help you determine whether or not you should buy it. Let’s get going…

What exactly do the figures tell the bot? Well, the most important stat for me personally is definitely the approximated refund rate. I gain this from looking at the EPS figure, which would be 50% of the price, take away the CB fee, if there were no refunds. If those don’t tally then either

(a) there have been refunds
(b) the vendor changed the price
(c) the seller is selling numerous items via the same account
(d) I’ve estimated the price wrongly above

So, as you can see, it isn’t really, unfortunately, the most accurate of stats. Here however, if it is accurate it is pretty low – under one in ten people were unsatisfied with their purchase.

Another statistic we can look at is called the Gravity. This gives us an idea of the quantity of affiliates that have been selling the product (have no idea what an affiliate is? See this link). Products with a lot of gravity are really well-known ones, but that does not necessarily mean they are high quality. Likewise, low gravity products, could be excellent but just don’t have the recognition yet. For this particular product the gravity of 0.198514 is low.
