Clickbank has risen from obscurity to market domination in the digital info products industry where you can buy anything from cat training manuals to advice on how to cure compulsive hair pulling disorders. These info products are sold by some of the best Internet marketers and affiliates in the business and make revenues ranging from tens of thousands to millions of dollars every year. Clickbank for its part takes a 7% fee on every transaction as well as charging people $50 to be able to sell their digital info product through the Clickbank platform.
To date, Clickbank claim to have processed over $2bn worth of transactions since they began which is not bad considering all they need to do is process the credit card payments and run a skeleton staff.
Numerous people have been in touch with us over the years and asked for a Clickbank clone script and we’re pleased to say that the project has moved from voting to funding in our Agriya Ideas portal. With a budget of $10,500 investors have already pledged $3,000 so it’s well on its way to being fully funded.
If you want to build a turnkey website that processes payments for digital marketers (or anyone looking to sell actually) with full affiliate management then this is a project you need to be involved with right now. For just $750, which is much less than the script will eventually sell for, you can get a ground floor position to help direct the project, suggest features and ensure that the final product is the best piece of software available on the market.
Furthermore, Agriya rewards all investors with a profit share program so that based on the number of sales you will earn up to 200% of your money back. If you pledge $750 now, in 6 months you could be running your successful website and earned $1,500 back from Agriya if the sales of the product have been strong.
There are other advantages to pledging your money too because you’ll get to use the early beta releases of the software which means you can establish your website long before any competitors come along and ensure that the features you want are included for no extra cost – assuming you can convince the other investors of course.
$750 is the minimum amount you need to pledge but there is no upper limit, infact if you want to fund the remaining amount because you believe in the project so much then you are free to do so.
Getting a project like this Clickbank clone developed by yourself would cost in the region of $20,000 if you were to get it done properly by a company experienced in developing secure and scalable e-Commerce platforms. Using the power of crowdsourceing you don’t need to pay anywhere near that amount, infact, you have the opportunity to get all your money back and then some.
Agriya Ideas has already funded a large number of projects and investors are already earning back their money every day thanks to Agriya’s marketing machine which ensures that everyone knows about our products. Successful past projects include GrubWithUs clone, Etsy clone, Airbnb clone and our soon to be released Freelancer clone and Thumbtack clone.

When you are the market leader like Agriya is for clone scripts, daily deal software, vacation rentals software and more, we always have to be a little bit candid and cautious when talking about our future plans because we know that many companies look to us to decide what to do next. Agriya prides itself on foreseeing future trends before they happen and is just one of the reasons why we have been first to market with our Groupon clone, Airbnb clone, Fiverr clone and Yipit clone to name but a few.
On the other hand, there will always be competitors following in our wake and we want to keep our customers informed and excited as we are about our future plans, but if it comes across as being a little bit too reticent with information we hope you can understand!
Service Based Websites
Agriya has identified several key verticals that are ripe for entering and revolutionizing for a global market. We will be creating a new business unit of the company that will build, operate and run these web based services. The ground work is almost done and development and customization has begun (it’s a cryptic clue, we know!) and we’re looking forward to launching the first of our web based services that will serve a specific (non-tech) vertical in the coming months. More service based websites will be launching over the coming year as we look to expand and become more than a products based company.
If you ever saw our profile on some of the popular freelance websites you may have wondered why we called ourselves “LAMPC” (we pronounce it “lamp-see” in the office). The reason is that back in the olden days (about 8 years ago!) PHP and CGI were the open source programming languages of choice for the vast majority of websites. Fast forward to 2012 and there is a myriad of open source languages with their own advantages and disadvantages. Agriya is already branching out from PHP and developing client projects in cutting edge languages built specifically for the needs of todays web applications and we have hired new programmers to specifically learn these new languages so if you want to get a website developed in an open source language other than PHP, CGI or Ruby let us know because we’ve now got the expertise to help you.
Product Development Driven By Agriya Ideas
One of the most innovative developments that came out of 2011 was the launch of our FundProjectsWith.me concept where we took a crowdsourcing approach to developing new products based on specific consumer demand and taking the guess work out of predicting what will be popular in 6 months from now (although our list of successful products that were the first to market really speaks for itself).
Late last year we rolled the FundProjectsWith.me functionality in to our ever evolving Agriya Customers website and it got a new name: Agriya Ideas. The concept is still the same, you suggest which products you would like to see, we take a democratic approach with people voting on projects to take forward to funding and then anyone can contribute money to the project to ensure it gets developed. As a reward for helping to fund a project the investor gets up to double their money back (depending on sales) along with helping to shape the direction the project takes.
All future Agriya products will be driven by this crowdsourced method so that you can get the products you want and Agriya can focus its resources on projects people will buy. If you have an idea for a project, just head over to Agriya Ideas and let us know.
Relaunching Agriya Forums
In the middle of last year we had to shut down the Agriya forums due to far too much automated spam and vBulletin’s inability to effectively stop it. This was a shame because it was a good place for the community to hang out so we have made plans to resurrect the forum using our brilliant Discuzz software – with some modifications of course! We hope to have this new dicussion forum tightly integrated in to our Agriya Customers area and you’ll be able to meet, hangout and chat to other customers, share ideas and get help on specific questions about the software.
HUSH! We may have said too much already but gamification for Agriya is here and it’s going to rock your world!
New Project Management Tool For Clients
Based on the remarkable success of our Products Bug Tracker which is based on the famous Mantis software, it incorporates a super friendly user interface for the frontend and a developer friendly backend so that everyone gets the best of both worlds. We’re now working to roll this solution out to our customization and service based projects.
Of course, there are a whole host of additional plans that are in the pipeline but for the sake of confidentiality we can’t announce them just yet!
All in all, 2012 is looking to be an even more successful year than 2011 as we look to consolidate our number one position in the clone scripts market, improving our current range and providing the best software with the best support and updates.
We created BuySell to fulfill the market demand for a high quality, scalable and fully supported Etsy clone – something which it has truly excelled at given the customer feedback we’ve received but we don’t want you to think that it’s just and Etsy clone when under the hood BuySell is an extremely powerful ecommerce system that with a bit of tweaking and customization can be turned in to just about any kind of web store.
Get real estate agents listing their properties. With all the vendor features already built in, real estate agents can create an account and start uploading the properties in their portfolio. With a little bit of customization and Google Maps integration you can add some geo-targeting in to the script to let people find properties listed in precise areas. It doesn’t just have to be about selling property though, it would work equally well as a place to list properties for rent.
BuySell works on the principle that anyone can come along and set up a store on your site to sell their product, but why do they have to sell multiple products? Every day tens of thousands of individuals are looking to sell their car and with most of the functionality built in, BuySell could be the perfect platform to letting anyone list their car for sale and have buyers make the purchase online. With some customization and Google Maps integration you can even make it so that people can find used cars for sale near to where they live. You can also take this concept further and do a site for different things like used bikes, used boats, used power tools etc.
Local Yard Sales
We all know eBay is the granddaddy of yard sales but BuySell would be an equally effective site for people to sell their unwanted goods. With vendor signup such a breeze, anyone with unwanted items can quickly list what they have for sale and sell it for a fixed price rather than hang around in an auction style associated with eBay.
Writers Publishing Platform
How many unsigned publishers are there in the world? We’re willing to bet that there are millions who would kill for the chance to get some recognition and with BuySell you could give them that opportunity. Authors can sign up using the vendors platform and start adding their ebooks to your site. Since BuySell allows you to sell digital downloads you have virtually everything you need to let authors set up a store front and start self publishing. With some customization you can let the authors customize their store fronts and enable them to really promote their writing.
Similar to the writers publishing platform, stock photography lets people sell their images to graphic designers and websites. Anyone with a camera can create a vendor account and start uploading their images and with a bit of customization you can insert watermarks on the photos to make sure they don’t get stolen.
Many people often donate high quality products and items to charity shops where no one ever sees them because too few people venture in to a charity shop. You can change this by setting up a store specifically for local charities to sell their donated items. Each charity can create its own store and add all the products it wants to sell. The benefit is that you can create a web store full of cheap, used items while the charity can increase its revenue thanks to more people buying their products.
These are six unique and out of the box ways that Agriya can think of to use our BuySell software and prove that it’s not just an Etsy clone (although it remains the best and only Etsy clone script on the market). What ideas can you come up with to use BuySell?
“Team work divides a task and doubles the success”
Coming together, sharing together, working together and succeeding together are what team work is all about. The essence of this statement is that success can be achieved as a team, when everybody on the team works towards it. Team work is a new concept that is being adopted by many companies to achieve their target quickly.
An organization can consist of different teams like top management team, focused task team, products/ services development team, product launch team, quality improvement team, and so on. However not all teams are successful because of fuzzy vision, lack of leadership skills, discouraging culture, lack of initiatives, poor vertical communication, poor idea and knowledge management, and so on.
Here are some effective team building ideas you can implement to manage a team effectively:
1. Make sure that the team’s goals are very clear and understood by each member of your team. Apart from this, team members have to know their roles and responsibilities to achieve targets on time.
2. Be active, not dormant. Each member is responsible for the team’s success. Try to learn the latest technology and see how you can implement it in your project, ask your team members questions, provide feedbacks and information, interact and discuss with others and so on.
3. Share your ideas and your experience, and make sure you complete designated jobs on time.
4. Use effective communication channels between one another. Emails, viral communication, group meetings and so on will enable team members of the group to work together and achieve the team’s purpose and goals.
5. Listen other people’s opinions.
6. Try to be patient. If any problems occur while working, use that as an opportunity to learn and try to overcome the problem rather than blaming others.
7. Treat others with respect, and support their ideas.
8. Keep timelines in mind while working on the project.
9. As a team leader you have to encourage creative thinking and reward your team mates for any innovative ideas they come up with.
10. Conduct training programs like knowledge improvement, personality development and leadership quality improvement, and offer recreation programs on a regular basis, to keep team members active and fresh at all times.
Benefits of teamwork:
1. Team members may come from different areas such as marketing, design, service, purchasing and so on. So more ideas and more creative solutions can be created, leading to better results.
2. Ultimate goals can be achieved faster.
3. Workload can be distributed.
4. Deliver extraordinary results using a wide range of skills.
5. Self confidence can be created.
Remember there is no ‘I’ in teamwork. Understand how it really works, and realize all its benefits, to be able to give it your best.
