Klickly showed up on my radar a few months ago and quickly became one of my favorite inbound traffic generating apps for Shopify stores.

Why? Because it’s a risk free advertising model – you only pay for traffic that generates sales.

Think of it as paid ads but with an affiliate pricing model – pay per conversions, automated marketing style where you set the ROI.

Pay Per Conversion = pay after you make the sale, instead of paying per click or view.

Reviews are Key

This works like magic.
