Proud Clickbank Vendors Please Read!

by 54 replies
Hi, I am going to be a new clickbank vendor and I am very excited.

Can I hear some of your stories being a clickbank vendor?

Maybe how much you made on your first product, if you made more or less than you thought you would, if affiliates found you automatically or if you found them, and if you did find them how?

Also anything you wish someone could or would have said to you when you were going to get your first product on clickbank.

I want to charge $197 for my product which is good for my niche, not too high, not too low. Do affiliates like selling products over $97 or do their scam alert red flags go up and they don't even give it a chance?

I seel most products are 27-47 and a few 67 and 97 I don't see much other prices.

I'm going to offer affiliates 50% so they will get almost 100 dollars per sale, does that attract affiliates or does it repel them because it can be harder to get someone to spend $197 than it is to get them to spend $27?

Is selling over 10,000copies in one year an unrealistic goal, or if everything is mint and clean with good copy, is it actually in the realm of reality?

I turn 29 next month and I want to make my first million before I'm 30, I'm selling in the dating niche and it's from a whole new approach, total untapped niche that speaks to the whole market.

Have you ever put out something of quality, with good sales copy, offered a good commission and didn't attract affiliates or sales?

Can I hear your good stories, bad stories, everything inbetween and anything you wish someone told you right before launching your first product??

Is there even many clickbank vendors here or is this forum mostly affiliates?

Also can you find good affiliates here or quality affiliates??

It's crazy because this Diabetic offer, the top affiliate earns over 500k MONTHLY, I've never even made 2k monthly before, and that's just an affiliate. I've tried affiliate marketing and I find it to be extremely hard, so for me it's much better to put together a great offer and let people who are good at affiliate marketing do the selling for me, for a very nice commission.

Is there any clickbank vendors here who do not make enough money to live off of, like at least afford to live in a one bedroom apartment?

I really want a house like the one that Mo Vlogs just bought, you can see it here:
Could I start making like 10-50 mill a year?

Assuming I did everything very well, and customers love my product and returns are extremely low, what would be your best guess that I should expect to make in one year? Have many of you already made your first million, and how long did it take you to make your first million?

Sorry about all the questions I just got nobody to talk to about any of this stuff.

    I do have 3 questions if you don't mind.

    Not just as a fellow Warrior.

    But from a prospect's point of view.

    1. Does your product deliver what you said what it will?

    2. How do you intend to drive targeted traffic to your offers?

    3. Have you tested out everything to make sure the links and resources are working in both sales page and members area?


    Besides doing so, here is my suggestion as well.

    Go and contact other vendors in your niche.

    Ask them if they are interested to promote your product to their list.

    However, before you do that, promote their products as well to your list and make a few sales first.

    So that when you asked them with proof that you made money for them as their affiliate, chances are they are mote likely to listen to you and promote your offer as your affiliate .

    To their list.

    Other methods you may consider are forum posting such as this site and blog commenting.

    You can also place classified and Facebook ads.

    Hope this helps.

      My product delivers I think 500 will even satisfy customers but I am selling this for $197 and my next one will just be an ebook I'm half done with now very well designed and thought out and that will be $67 and it will get people in the right mindset for my $197 product I'm launching first.

      For traffic I'm hoping affiliates kick in for that and take advantage of close to $100 commissions, but once I launch this product I will have more time also to make blog posts and really work on my autoresponder and build my list. There is already 21 people on my list and i'm not even ready for people to find my list yet.

      I don't have a members area, I am a complete noob with websites so I'm keeping it very simple and I have a great plugin that makes everything look very professional and authoritative. I am still working on my sales page now and have not even signed up for clickbank yet to test the buttons out.

      Everyone else in my niche, they are all the same so they can all sell each others stuff, but if they sell their customers my stuff, I mean, they could lose that person to me for life so I will not waste my time contacting other vendors because they will see me as a threat and not as a JV partner, but I would love to get a hold of their affiliates though.

      I'm very creative, and I can't say I'm not good at selling because I consider myself a good copywriter, but driving traffic just is not my strong suit or i would just save myself the headache and be an affiliate so for traffic it will be my affiliates and my blog posts, and if I have time after creating and releasing my next 2 products I will write 3-5 ebooks and put them in the kindle store for $9.99 and every 3 months I can make them free and get a few hundred, maybe a few thousand downloads and send them all to my squeeze page.

      I'm wondering is success common for clickbank vendors, or are the majority not successful and they have 9-5 jobs? I believe I will find success either way, but I'm just wondering if it's like really easy of if it's kind of shocking to find actual success as a clickbank vendor.

      By actual success I mean 1 bedroom apartment, no "job" and a car and easily afford all the bills and cable/phone all other normal stuff as a minimum, that or better.

      Is it likely for a clickbank vendor to afford his own 1 bedroom apartment or better or is it likely a clickbank vendor will also need a 9-5 and only the lucky few succeed??

    You need to step back and look at this....

    If you sell $1,000,000 worth of your product...

    Odds are... You'll spend 50% on Affiliates or Advertising...

    That means $500,000 for you before taxes and other business expenses....

    You may end up earning $300,000 after taxes and expenses...

    So, in order to earn $30,000,000... Your going to need to have a gross revenue around $100,000,000...

    That would an amazing feat from a single ClickBank product.
    • Profile picture of the author [Enzo
      The way I see it, if affiliates can get 10,000 sales, that will give me one million dollars, and about $650,000 after taxes, and I would shit my pants if I had $650,000 dollars haha, the most money I ever had at one time in my life was $2,400 and I've never made enough money to afford my own one bedroom apartment I always have needed room mates to afford a place to live. I will be plenty happy without having 30-100 million I'm just wondering if people make that kind of money doing this stuff. I do want to make a million in one year though just so I can say I made my first million before I turned 30.

    I would never promote any new product if I couldn't see conversion stats I believed to be real.


    If you want affiliates to promote, you have to first prove it will convert.

      Is this true on clickbank too? As a clickbank affiliate I've never seen that, but if I have to learn paid ads and stuff to prove it sells I mean, i'll know how to do it myself and won't have to share half my money lol.

      So I take it you have not found success as a clickbank vendor yet lol. This post was asking for the insight of proud clickbank vendors. No proud clickbank vendor would ever in his or her life for a second see this as a pipe dream. Millions a week, month, or year would be insane but I don't need it to be happy. Just livable with no 9-5 and I am good, I already know I can achieve that without affiliates but it will take more time. I was just about to ask you something, but before I do I want to ask something else. Are you even a proud Clickbank vendor?

    • Profile picture of the author [Enzo
      Nice, I can't believe I've never heard of him before. Maybe when I have more money I will check out some of his stuff, I'm not sure there's much people can say at this point I haven't heard though about e-mail marketing, sales copy, and all that. I've learned from Jeff Walker, Peng Joon, Eben Pagan, John Chow, and many more that just all say that same stuff, but that's awesome he actually uses clickbank, I love learning from people that actually use clickbank instead of learning from people who just teach business in general or internet marketing in general.

      Right now the stuff I need to know the most is how to get affiliates but it's starting to seem like I will get affiliates without even looking for them. It really doesn't take many sales to make a lot of money. If I can get 10 affiliates that each make 10,000 sales a year, I'll make 10 mill a year lol. If I can get one affiliate to sell 1,000 copies a year I will make 100k a year. Crazy. If I sell 1,000 copies myself a year, that's 200k to myself, it's crazy to me there's so many affiliates and so few vendors, when you take out a calculator and start playing with numbers, it's not that hard to make a lot.

      Do most people here on this forum make a lot, or do the successful vendors not use this forum?

      I don't know anybody that makes a lot of money so it'd be nice to talk to people that do the same thing I'll be doing and do it as good as I'll be doing it.

      I more of want people to talk to than need advice right this second because right now my only worry is finishing my sales page and having it look as nice as I can make it look and have the sales copy written so well it converts as high as possible. Once the page is done though, i'll prob need some actual advice like how to deliver my product for free cause it's a bigger file than wordpress will let me upload I think, but I hear there's plugins for it so i'm not worried and same with the clickbank header I was worried about that too but I heard there's plugins for it that make it very easy.

      I get vibes here like people don't want to see others succeed, but I will succeed anyways I hope I can meet some people to talk to though because I don't talk to people I know in real life about this stuff, I suppose there's not many of us in the world though, what is there like 10,000 clickbank vendors? That's awfully low, looks like the road to success is wide open.

    My best story is when I left Clickbank, that is when I started to make the real money!

    The affiliates there are useless. (99% of them anyway). All they did was drive shitty traffic to my site and lower my conversion rates.

    I created my own payment processing and my own affiliate program through Clickfunnels.

      When you listed your product, click bank affiliates will get notified and if they like your product they will promote this automatically.

      If your product is higher than $100, I guess ClickBank now is putting some price ceiling of up to $100 only. In any event, you may want to try to get your product approval first and hear what they will say.

      My product price is $97.

      Wish you all the best for this launch with ClickBank!

      Be determined!

    Best thing to do is to apply to list your product on Clickbank - and see if it's approved or not. Approval is not automatic but the response to an application may tell you if anything needs to be changed.

    The latest word on pricing from CB does not list a "maximum" price - so that may be a recent change at CB .

    I haven't personally ever used clickbank to sell products though it looks like a good place to start. As long as you have a good product in a niche that is popular you should do fine. Good luck I hope you do well.

    [Enzo -

    CB is only one marketplace - there are others. WarriorPlus and JVZoo are examples of some alternatives.

    It's less stressful to operate on facts - not on wishes or guesses. Find out if Clickbank is right for your product (and vice versa) and, if not, check out alternative platforms.

    If your product is ready - go for it. THEN you can operate from a position of knowledge - testing and changing to increase sales - getting feedback from buyers, etc.

    You think people are being tough on you - but we know an IM truth:

    The worst sales page and product available online - will sell more than the perfect sales page and product that is only on your computer. The more "buy buttons" you have online - the greater your chances of earning money.

      The worst sales page and product available online don't sell anything and when they do they get a refund. If that's how you do business, your competitors thank you.

      I don't do things half assed, I do it the best I possibly can. Still not the best, but a lot better than a lot I've seen.

      I'll tell you real IM truth because you don't know IM truth, you know IM failure.

      IM truth is you can have an ugly sales page as long as your sales copy is great and your product is great so nobody returns it. Just because you CAN have an ugly sales page with good copy doesn't mean it's not better to have a BEAUTIFUL sales page with good copy.

      It took me like an hour to see if you want IM truth, you aren't going to find it here lol.

      More buy buttons does not equal a greater chance, that's a foolish way of thinking. That's the same as saying 10,000 lines in the water with no bait and no hooks have a better chance of catching a fish than one pole with a good hook and good bait.

      I'm going to have the good pole and the good bait, and then if i get enough affiliates, that ONE pole will be everywhere.

      You sound like you did not learn from the right people, you should take a step back because you have some toxic ideas in your head that are stopping you from the success I'm going to be experiencing sooner than later.

      I did not open this thread to listen to people try to talk me out of clickbank or have them try to feel above me by shaming me and telling me about their extremely minimal success, and how their minimal success means I will never find more success than them haha lol, SO TOXIC.

      I opened this thread to talk to people like me that are on the same path or further. People that are HAPPY and PROUD Clickbank vendors. Either they aren't here, or they're hiding from most of you guys. They already know the Toxicity levels are dangerous.

      You can say 'stop talking and do it, stop talking and prove your success.' I'm not going to rush my success, I'm going to go at my own pace, and I'm not going to stop looking for cool like minded people to talk to, I'd just appreciate it if all you naysayers crawled back into your holes of the unsuccessful and stayed there until you level up and can come back able to bring value to the conversation because you're all not saying anything.

      I wasn't born yesterday, and I didn't just hear of Clickbank yesterday and mindlessly decide to try making a product out of no where.

      i don't know EXACTLY what I'm doing because I've never done it before, but it's not like I'm a toddler trying to learn the alphabet.

      I'm only looking to talk to other vendors, and ONLY Clickbank vendors, I know the real top vendors don't use Clickbank, but I'm not going to start that high, I'll build to that point over time. I'd also talk to Clickbank affiliates and anyone who is all about what I'm all about.

      If you don't like clickbank or clickbank vendors, or anything about this business and all you want to do is rain on other people's parades and literally convince yourself that you're adding some type of value to my life, just go away. You're not adding value, you're trying to reach up and pull me down. It's not going to work, nothing can stop me I'm all the way up.

    I like that you have LARGE aspirations to make money (as a motivation) but your first concern has to be backwards engineering what's working for people and realize none of them started out making that kind of money..they found something that worked and replicated it. Secondly you have to care about your customers or you'll be a temporary success..just because people buy from you once, doesn't meant they will again if your product is crap, so work HARD on ever-delivering value and making it easy to understand.

    I'd dare say alot of people on here have earned a millon, but not in a year or 2, and honestly, you can live VERY well on less than that (research articles on 'internet lifestyle' alot of it is about cost of living on the area you live).

    My honest advice to you is this: get good at this, make some money, and invest some in real estate, you can leverage your money better there if you're really looking for big bucks. good luck

    On a side note, did you get the green light from Clickbank for a $197 product? As far as I know right now the price limit is $50, you have to get some sort of special dispensation for higher-priced products.

    I don't know how easy it is to get, I haven't priced anything above $50, it could be trivial to get permission, but just thought I'd mention it.

    In the past there was a standard limit of $50 on products sold at ClickBank.

    The typical maximum price they allowed was $200 for vendors residing in the U.S. and $100 for those outside though in rare circumstances they would approve higher limits.

    ClickBank has said "If you have a high-quality product with a relatively low risk of returns or chargebacks, we are likely to approve your request. A well designed consumer-friendly website will help your case too."

    Currently the ClickBank site does not mention a maximum price.

    I'm not very good at vendor point of view, but still i do have few products in clickbank, so i'm trying to advice from my experience. Many people or vendors think that once they have created a very good product rich in quality and content then affiliates will automatically pick your product and bring sales for you, but it won't happen at initial stage.

    Because in-order to make affiliates to pick you product and promote, first you should make them believe that your product is already a selling one in the market, so in order to make them believe it first you have to market your own product and make some few sales so that clickbank will improve your gravity and rank higher
