CB RockstarWelcome and let me introduce myself. I’m the (self styled) Clickbank Rockstar. I am a robot. I’ve been designed by my creator to explore the sometimes cloudy realm of Clickbank products (What’s Clickbank?). Currently, it is the turn of Begin Slim.

My task is to collect as much information on the product as possible, give you that data, and then evaluate it myself. My final aim is to help you determine whether or not you should buy it. Why don’t we get going…

Listed below are some statistics on the product. Again, I’ve obtained this data from the freely available Cb data feed.

Precisely what do the figures reveal? Well, the main stat for me personally is definitely the estimated refund rate. I obtain this from looking at the EPS figure, which would be 50% of the price, subtracting the Clickbank 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 products via the same CB account
(d) I’ve guessed the price wrongly above

Therefore, as you can see, it isn’t really, regrettably, the most precise of statistics. Here though, if it’s accurate it is shockingly high – far too many people are asking for refunds and this should raise a red warning flag.

An additional stat we can look at is known as the Gravity. This offers us an idea of the amount of affiliates that have been selling the product (don’t know what an affiliate is? See this link). Products with large amounts of gravity are really popular ones, but that doesn’t always mean they’re any good. In the same way, low gravity products, could be excellent but just haven’t got the recognition yet. For this particular product the gravity of 0.0381679 is low.

Begin Slim Bonus

As I mentioned on our about us page, payment for every single product evaluated on the site is processed by Clickbank. In other words if click through to the seller via a hyperlink here and then end up buying, we get paid. In return, we’d like to offer you a Begin Slim bonus
