I've also wondered why I don't find much on Clickbank Pirate. I'd like to see what others say.

It's probably not worth it or we would have heard a blurb at least.

That probably means we are on someone's gullible list

Click away from the page and you will get an offer for the first month for less than $5 - as opposed to $47. Probably worth trying out at that price.

Was lucky to see this project form as an idea, to launch date today.

It's well worth it and one of the best plug and play systems I've ever used.

Those are two of the hardest working people in this business and deserve all the praise and kudos. So I'll give them some - Way to go guys!

One of the comments on site said that they have their own back-end sales products:

"And they are even going to mail your prospects with backend offers - you cannot beat that, these guys know how to really pick up sales. In fact they were in our top 5 on MME4 so you are lucky to have these guys mailing for you!

That's a nice start!

Especially if you get (some) commission on these!

By anyone's standards, those intro. videos are hypey. They take "it requires no work" to kind of ridiculous levels.

System looks cool, though, and the Plug 'n Play blog idea is one of the best I've seen - that alone is worth something significant.

On the flipside - I recall Cindye concurring they will initially only be working with MMO products - a huge downer to me.

It also was quite annoying to me that they heavily edited blog comments - folks with serious questions included. I don't like that, but that's just me.

I'd say the jury's out, but I can clearly see some value.

It's very slick, but too soon to give a review. I'll try to give feedback after a couple of weeks of using.

I haven't bought the product but you will find most products come with upsells & downsells. Could be wrong here but by having ups & downs its a great way to add to your bottom dollar. Don't get angry at them for doing so.

Default Re: Clickbank Pirate reviews

I bought it only yesterday, so there's not much to review yet.

There is an upsell/OTO, at least if you start out with the full-price $47 package. It's $97. For that you get one extra affiliate product package per month, the ability to sort your preferences as to the type of product you will receive (still almost entirely make money online) since not every member gets exactly the same ones, a number of free points to various traffic systems, and PLR to the OTO page they use.

The layout inside is easy to navigate. The emails/blog posts/articles they provide that you can use to promote your links are well written and appropriate for the medium, if sometimes lacking a bit of pizzazz. They do let you insert tracking codes into your links/banners as well so you can figure out where your traffic came from.

The squeeze pages are slick. I signed up for the reports for all of the offers I have available using another email address and they were definitely appropriate for giving me some value and moving me along the sales funnel. I'll be interested to see what backend emails come up. There's a lot of clickbank pirate advertising going along with the rest of it, but it looks like if someone clicks on that a commission still goes to my account.

I've not really done affiliate marketing before and I've always approached it mentally from the idea of you're talking about something else and you find a product that audience would like and put it in context for them. This is decidedly the other way around, unless you already have a list/lens/blog on making money online.

I'm going to give it a solid try. It's self-contained enough to remove some of my stress but gives me enough flexibility that I feel like I can add value through how I choose to promote the products.

Yes it does come with the offer (oto) of upgrading to a higher number of themed packages per month. You don't need to take this of course, just gives you the option.

It's pretty late where I am so my brain is more fried than usual but I just cannot see what this all about.

After reading the endless sales page I wasn't going to bother but clicking away gives you a $5 "try it out" option so I gave it a go.

Received the email where it says,
============
Access Packs

This is where you access your turnkey
system and their promo tools.
============

So after logging in and clicking on "Access Packs" there are promo tools to sell their program, "Clickbank Pirate", as an affiliate and an Exit Pop program or system. They are promoting additional affiliate programs in the members area in the form of (4) 468 x 60 banners which is quite confusing as you don't initially know if it's a promo tool for the "turnkey package" or something they are flogging in the members area.

It's the same for the Exit Pop package except there are 6 banners instead of 4.

I am obviously missing something here because even allowing for normal exaggeration on the sales page I was expecting something more than a load of affiliate promo materials and an Exit Pop product. If I had paid $47 for this I don't think I would be too happy so please, put me right folks. Tell me the powerful strategy that is going straight over my head.

Good Night Folks,

Ade

P.S. This is probably one of those posts where you wake up in the morning, make a cup of coffee, check the thread and feel like a right dork because you really have missed the obvious!!

Hi Ademartin,

Because you signed up for the less expensive trial you only start out with two packages to promote, CBPirate itself and apparently Exit Pop (those are randomized. I didn't get that one.)

When I view the promo tools I see prewritten emails, articles, posts, tweets, signatures, and code for banners.

Yes, I also see banners that say things like "blogging to the bank". These banners appear to be related traffic generating things that they are trying to sell to you and I was also confused by them at first. Just block out the pictures mentally and focus on the text if you want to see what promotion tools you have.

I'm not planning on using much of the pre-generated text. I'm more interested in how they've already set up the squeeze page and report delivery. That's what I'm thinking is worth the $47 (if they're effective, of course). And then them doing follow-up for you is hopefully worth the $27/monthly.

As far as I can tell the only way to see that part is to experience it. Click on your affiliate link at the very top of the view promo tools section. That way you can see the squeeze page like your customers will. Enter an email in order to get the report and see the rest of the process.

They were reportedly going to cap sales at 1,000, but have busted through the 2,500 level and still going strong.

I see some pro and con there - both are fairly obvious. Good luck Beth and others - I'm pulling for you!

Hello there, I'm new here at warrior forum. I found the forum here as I was actually researching a little into the cb pirate program. Thank you pearsonbrown, after reading your heads up I definately wanted to see what it was about, and for 4.95.. anyhow, I took the program and infact they gave me 2mth trial for the 4.95 so I thought Id come back and let everyone know, sure the heck never hurts to check out some thing new for 4.95, and the grief it would have cost me had I not just wondering, shudda couldda wouldda its well worth it! :rolleyes:

@ bethrobinson

Thanks for your input Beth.

I decided not to run with this mainly because it's not flexible enough for me. The emails being sent out to the list have 3 links in them, 2 straight links for CB Pirate themselves and one obvious affiliate link which means the member is losing prospects. As it stands, any prospects on the members list have a 2 in 3 chance of going directly to CB Pirate and the member loses out on a commission.

Looking at it from the point of view of someone who already has a list the program may be worth promoting for the commission.

From what I can see, like any other program, you still have to work on getting targeted traffic so, after the time and effort spent in gaining prospects, I don't see the point in sending them to CB Pirate when you could be promoting your own content without paying a monthly membership fee.

Certainly the follow ups and marketing system, (which is excellent), is in place for newcomers who just have to learn to promote and do nothing else but it's my feeling that the money would be better spent in building their own list which they have full control over.

One of the selling points for CB Pirate is "you don't have to pay for hosting, autoresponders, link cloakers, writers etc.". My thinking is that you really should be paying for hosting, autoresponders and so on.

Like I say, for me it's not flexible enough but maybe I'm just a control freak and I guess, if the system makes more than the monthly fee then it may be considered a winner except I can't get passed what I consider to be giving my hard earned prospects away, and that is not good marketing.

The above is not being critical of CB Pirate as there has been a lot of good work gone into the package and it would definitely be of value to someone starting out to see a full promo system in operation and they also give pointers on how to get traffic.

Let me know if I made any errors in my comments on CB Pirate.

Ade, I agree with you completely that in many ways this is a tool for a newbie and it's something that I hope will eventually become a small percentage of what I do online.

I want to be able to control all those things you mentioned. Very much. But the point for me is that I haven't DONE it yet because I keep getting stuck in doing it "right". I'm using my trial of Clickbank Pirate to get me out of my comfort zone and into trying something new.

I'll post a results review in this thread in a month or so.

I already purchased and tried this out both through Adwords and through free ads. With their supposed auto followup expected to see some results - certainly within a few days. This is just another program that looks good but doesn't work! Am not a "newbie" and initially found what they were claiming to be as close to auto program as you could get. They even addressed the question as to what if too many people were promoting the same products, etc. Unfortunately, this has also turned out to be one of those where the 5 products you are given to promote a free report are essentially promoting this product. it is really too bad because the idea is a good one if they had only actually set up squeeze pages, auto responder, etc. for a wide variety of products worth promoting.

Looked good but turned out to not live up to all the hype. Don't waste your money or time! I am not a "newbie" to internet marketing. First made money as an affiliate in 2004. Unfortunately, there are more programs filled with hype than ones that truly work. Guess that is because there are too many people willing to tell lies to make the quick buck than ones who want to be able to look at themselves in the mirror. On top of that they will usually joint venture with others willing to sing their praises to grab a piece of the pie.

You are to be congratulated on figuring things out before paying for this. Sounds like a good program and idea but absolutely does not live up to the claims. Might as well flush your money down the toilet and save yourself a lot of wasted time and effort!

Hi Everyone,

Like Kent above I also found the original intro stuff far too hypey and it did put me off. Then when the launch came and I kept declining the offer I was finally shown the 4.95 one and thought "What the heck"...it does fit in with what I am trying to do...so I subscribed. Best thing I've done this year.

I found the bonuses worth far more than the original asking price per month. Either that or they were really geared for my level of learning which is also quite possible...but either way, I'm a very satisfied cat.

I believe they have slid into a gap that was missing but unrecognized until someone (these guys) came along and filled it. When an average 'newbie' goes to CB they are confronted with a whole lot of data that many of us don't understand.

Where on CB does it really explain the 'real' meaning/affect of what everything means? I haven't understood it yet and to find a system that utelises CB's full potential is a huge help.

I think CB-pirate will be a good extra arrow in an intermediate or experienced marketers quiver because if they already know how to drive traffic properly, then they get a pretty cheap 'outsourced' revenue raiser with someone else doing all the work. Isn't that called leverage?

If you are concerned and want to build your own list then there's absolutely no reason why you can't send them through your own squeeze page first if you want total control of your list. I will be doing that as soon as I have done some more work on my new website.

As for them promoting their own product as one of the two for the 4.95 option....why wouldn't they? Makes perfectly good sense to me and I would expect to pay this small option price for my $5 intro offer.

As for it being 1 of the 5 products initially offered, why wouldn't they be promoting their own new product into the market? I would, wouldn't you if it was your product?

OK, I've decided it suits me well and I would honestly recommend it to many others who are in the same boat as me.

Cheers all,

Jan

Hey Jan,

I'm looking at this product right now and it seems useful from an outsourcing P.O.V. all I have to do is promote. What I am hearing though is that the 5 products are not actually 5 separate niche clickbank products, but generic ebooks that point back to CB Pirate... is that true?

GCWorld, there's certainly a bit of flavor of making money by signing up new members due to the way the promotions are set up, so I understand your objection to what I posted. I still believe there is value to the program and expressing my opinion added information to this thread.

The link in my signature goes to a blog which currently has about as many neutral and negative things to say about the program as positive. I won't complain if someone signs up through the sidebar ad, but that's not really the point to it.

I'm not expecting to make money through the blog visitors, nor by promoting Clickbank Pirate. I'm hoping for some interaction from my blog as I know this type of learning log works better for me when I get feedback.

I'm expecting to make money, if I do, through the packages that Clickbank Pirate provided to me for other products. I submitted my first article today, after months of avoidance, and am looking forward to seeing if anything happens.

Anthony, The 5 separate products are indeed Clickbank products. It's the thank you pages and free reports that have a big CB Pirate graphic ad plastered on them that is a bit obtrusive. For example, I've received access to promotional packages for ReadyMade Review Sites and Build a Niche Store and the Money Siphon System, among others, all of which are sold on Clickbank.

Hi Anthony and all,

The products they are listing are clickbank products and it's not just products from the three involved in the project but there are other well known marketers who have contributed their products as limited bonuses that are truely worth having ~ if you can still get them?

Like Beth, I'm not intending or expecting to make too much from signing people up to cb-pirate but what I'm wanting from the project is cb products that sell well and that come with value added content ....and as they provide the backend deals to follow up these contacts this is precisely what suits me right now.

If all I have to do is to promote cb-pirate (which is a perfect fit for my new website anyway) while I actually build my new website ~ it's spot-on the money for my needs. The bonuses are really the icing on the cake :-) and they are sweeet

Cheers all,

Jan

I also signed up for the trial version of cb pirate. I have only had the product for a few days, but here are my first thoughts on it.

There are a lot of pieces to successful internet marketing and I haven't got them all put together successfully yet. I know what all the pieces are and find getting my own package together an overwhelming task to take on. I like CB Pirate because it offers most of the pieces already in place. This gives me the opportunity to focus my effort on getting traffic. And learning all I can about that.

I do see three problems with the system.

1- Lack of control over the list You are limited to only promoting what they want to promote. You can't see if messages are getting opened, links are getting clicked, and the worst part is that you lose the list when you decide to discontinue the membership.

2- Limited Reporting As I mentioned I can't tell what happens once the email is sent out. There is no tracking. There is a report on their site that shows how many people clicked on your links and the conversions. This is better then nothing, but I still feel like I am missing information that would help better focus my time and efforts.

3- All the products appear to be MMO opportunities Making money is a profitable niche, but also severely competitive. I was hoping to have some of these tools in other niches where I could expand my focus.



All the tools they provide to help with marketing fit well with my limited time, budget and skills. I don't have to figure out a good package, create a squeeze page, come up with something to entice people into giving me their contact information, or write my marketing material from scratch. So far it is working well for me. I have already made my first sale and have a growing list of prospects. You of course don't have to use their squeeze page. You could setup your own squeeze page and then send the people to your cb pirate page. This could also reduce the reporting problem. Overall I am very happy with the product I received and I am making money with it so I would say it was well worth the inexpensive fee I paid so far.

On launch day, I made $205USD commissions and the next day Aug.5 I made $88USD?

I never did any promotion at all? That's what I call "easy money".

GCworld - I find it interesting that you joined this forum this month, kind of interesting that is the same month CBP is released. And then you go above and beyond to tell members not to buy it....Interesting...

Anyways, I'm a big fan of this program. Yes, I know Soren and Cindy both, but I saw this developed from day one to now. They have executed it perfectly. It's a great ssystem, if you use it.

Is it as simple as plug n play? Kind of, but we all know how hard the 'traffic' side of things can be, so they do provide some great information within the members area to give everyone a few tips and tricks.

I'm not going to start throwing up bogus Clickbank account pics. All I can tell you is that the products within the system DO SELL. And have been selling for me.

This system was designed to be simple. It's not supposed to be the answer for everyone, just a very 'laid back' way to make some money with Clickbank. The system works, I've seen it myself.

Thanks Kari. I would buy this product if the squeeze page is promoting other that MMO niche.

You have NO More Excuses NOT to buy Clickbank Pirate.

Soren and Cindy just added another bonus that will help build you YOUR OWN LIST.

You have until Tuesday at 10:00am EST to buy Clickbank Pirate.

So here's the bonus, you get a free copy of
their "Blog Traffic Genius"... and it's
actually a complete plug and play system you
can use to build your own list!

Including:

* A professionally designed squeeze page
(just add your AR code)


* Thank you and download page set up to
promote your Clickbank Pirate links, just
add your affiliate ID.

* A set of amazing blog traffic videos to
entice people to join your lists.

* And super neat banners and graphics you
can use to promote your new squeeze page.

And all of this will be available on the
download page inside your Clickbank Pirate
members area, when you secure your
membership today!

Isn't that your affiliate link in your signature??

With reference to the Signature File Rules, rule No. 5 states:

(5) No Affiliate Links Allowed - Promote Your Own Domain/s Only. It's either this or we have to cut out sig files altogether which we do not want to do.

Refer to this link for the entire Forum Rules:

Hi Warriors,

I've joined CB pirate. Gave my email in the squeeze page of one of the products.

Then in the first follow-up autoresponder message, I clicked on the promo link, went to the Clickbank order page, and down at the bottom I checked to see if my affiliate id is written.

It says [affiliate=MyAffId.cbpirate] instead of simply [affiliate=MyAffId]. Will I still get the full commission % for that Clickbank product?

Thanks,
Michael
