    Hello Saxmanay,

    1. Go to the search box at the top of the page and enter clickbank. You will find a ton of threads and posts ref Clickbank.

    2. Go to Clickbank University then come back here to all the tips and tricks Clickbank doesn't teach you. Some warriors do very, very well on Clickbank, have for years. OOPS! See Nate's comment on this in the next post.

    3. One question to ask is - What other networks can I use in addition to or instead of Clickbank.

    Word from the GMa - never put all your eggs in one basket.

        You can promote products from Jvzoo or warriorplus. Both are good alternatives to click bank.

          Actually, both of those have horror stories far worse than anything alleged against Clickbank.

        If your website is already up and running, you can search for products within your niche and see if they have their own affiliate programs.

        Shareasale is a good network to explore with many different products to sell.

    Hey Saxmanay,

    To answer your question, $150 will get you the following, and well on your way to making your business from the ground up;

    1. $23 will get you a domain and hosting. I show this in my free tutorial on my website.

    2. $19 will you get 1 month of a great Keyword research tool, which if used correctly, will pay for itself after a month or two of dedicated work on your website.

    3. $16/month for an autoresponder email account. You NEED this if you plan to make real money online. "The money is in the list" is more true than most people truly realize.

    4. After that, you'll have about $90 left. A lot of new people will say to "pocket it for later". Don't do that, when you can write a couple very helpful articles in your niche, and then promote a few products on your site.

    5. Go to Bing and set up 3 PPC campaigns for $30 each. It won't be for very long, but do some serious research on the keywords you use for your niche BEFORE you launch your campaigns.

    *Don't use the same tactic for all three campaigns. You should try a little bit of a variety to test which works best for your product and niche. Whichever one gets more hits and sales, simply scale that campaign and create others similar to it, split test again, rinse and repeat.

    The thing with making money through ClickBank and Affiliate Marketing is that too many people think that you can make a lot of money for free. Some people happen to be lucky and get this right. Others understand free search engine traffic take a few weeks to build up. Social media is much quicker, but not quite as targeted as some may think.

    As far as ClickBank University... I tried it when they first launched it, and again just about a year ago. My honest opinion? I hated it. They didn't teach me anything, the steps are way too vague, they block you from proceeding at your own pace (which they justify by saying it's "to prevent you from getting overwhelmed"). I didn't get overwhelmed... I felt lost at the lack of information and guidance!

    Anyways, yeah. I just wasn't pleased with the, at all. You can find all the same information, and MORE for free from bloggers like myself and YouTube videos.

    Hope this helps, and if you have any questions, be sure to let me know!

      Wow, Nate. I had no idea the whole thing went south. Sorry for the suggestion, saxmanay.

    Your $150 is good enough for quick niche testing. I'm sure you can invest $50-$75 into PPC ads to see if the niche is responsive. With the remainder of that money, after testing a niche (with a broad domain name)... get a keyword focused/niche specific domain name, and get to work.

    Consider your traffic source (demographic) first, and then ask yourself what you can sell them.

    (So, find people that you have economical access to, and then figure out what problem they're having).
