Made my first Clickbank sale

31 replies
I'm pretty amazed at the moment, the niche site the sale come from has only 'officially' been finished and up since Monday. I logged on to CB tonight to check my stats and there is a $25.04(75% of $37) sale sitting in there The site is a joint effort between myself and my wife, and I said a few days ago that it would be a great bonus to get a sale in the first week online, sure enough it has happened. I was prepared for the first week(first few weeks in fact) to consist purely of building backlinks, submitting articles and generally building traffic.

I'm pretty sure the sale came from EZA. 8 articles I submitted went live yesterday, but the thing is - only 6 clicks came from them on the same day(when the product was bought). If it did come from there, that's a pretty good conversion rate to start off with

I know $25 is a pretty small amount, but I consider it a real achievement, especially since this is a brand new site. I hope we can continue like this. I owe a lot of it to you guys here at the WF - I've taken on board lots of info from the great people here in the last few weeks on everything from WP to article marketing to SEO and everything in between. So thank you all I hope I can give back even a fraction of what I've received here in the coming weeks, months and years. Sorry to sound so excited, I'm new to CB, new to niche marketing and have a brand new site so to get a small taste of success so early feels really good. Long may it continue. To all the newbies(and those of any level) - listen to the experts on here. They know what they are talking about and if you follow their advice, you'll give yourself every chance of success

        Congrats on the sale mate!!!

        I know your feeling super good to nab the first sale in the first
        week.

        Keep up the good work you and your wife and get some tracking
        installed so you always know where sales are coming from.

        This way you can ramp up your activities where they pay the most.

        Here's to you and your wife success!

      Amen to that I am fed up of seeing those dreaded $0.00 stats day after day.

      I'm certain I'm going to crack CB soon though. Clickbank seems the rage all of a sudden.

      Next it will be Adwords again, or membership sites, or Adsense, Flipping sites. They come along like buses, full cycle.

      Ps Congratulations on the sale, long may they continue. To your success!

      It's just a simple case of multiplying what you've already done!!

      Keep it up and well done... (The majority of people give up and that's what seperates them from us successful Marketers!!)

    Congrats Cubalo,

    It is a cool feeling to realize you just created money out of thin air, isnt it?

    Now just double your efforts and turn one sale into one sale a day. Set small attainable
    milestones to hit and always push.

    Nice work, it often takes those first few sales to actually confirm that this stuff isn't all a load of rubbish. Once you put that first cheque in the bank you'll know with 100% certainty that it's legit. Keep it up.

    Congratulations! This is such a great example of how EZA + CB = sales! Make sure that you set your threshold at the minimum amount so that you can get 3 paper checks right away (I think it's 10 bucks). After that, you can set your account up for direct deposit - which I love. I look at my account and cha-ching there's more money in there then there was a month ago!

      Congrats! Nice going

      After a few more sales, you'll know that the affiliate programme works for you (and your customers). Then you can start scaling it with your own website and also review sites to dominate the affiliate offer.

          Yeah, this came at a great time - the last few weeks have been pretty frustrating and I've spent most of them just trying to learn and build. I took most of last week off while my wife built the niche site. Now my enthusiasm is back and I'm raring to go every day
