I just wanted to let you know that I made my very first real sale online. I've been plugging away with articles, and landing page and haven't seen any results.

Well, I decided to check my Clickbank account yesterday and saw a bunch of the usual zero's.
As I was clicking over to the marketplace page another figure caught my eyes. It was a commission payment for $26.30. I hollered at my wife, "Hey, I think I finally sold something". . What's crazy is that the sale was 2 weeks ago.

  • Quick question...

    If this is your "first" sale - why are you "teaching" people how to make "$3,500 to $25,000 Monthly With Google & Clickbank"? with your "clickbank screenshot" proof that "proves" that?

    That is what your signature link says...

        Boblyle, you are so spot on. With all the hustlers that are out there, it's refreshing when someone comes along and is transparent and honest. Even the slightest hint of exaggeration is a turn off as well. Great comment!

    Congrats man thats a cool feeling. I remember doing some clickbank backin 2010 and was promoting something called mypadmedia. It sounded good but seemed to not sell.

    Then one day I logged in and I got two sales, and CB sales do pay high commissions sometimes, so even 1 sale is good earnings.

    I don't want to burst your bubble but keep your fingers crossed as you might see it reversed in the next month for refund. Clickbank seems to have a lot of refunds, also you need to make a certain amount of sales per month to get any money. Clickbank is now deducting a certain amount from your monthly balance if you don't meet there monthly quota. That
    is why i have diverted my efforts fro Clickbank this past year. I love CPA offers as i get my commissions each and every month regardless if there is a refund or not.

      very true..

      you have a new species of online customer that will ALWAYS ask for a refund on a digital product they've already consumed.

      Even if the digi. product fulfilled it's end as a solution. The customer will still ask for a refund.....it's disgusting

    Hopefully it won't be a refund, odds are it won't be if it's a good product you're promoting. Not sure how it can be your first sale when you made $100 from Clickbank in March.

      Why are you so butt-hurt Mr.Bill?

      Do you tell your copywriting clients that they should avoid lying when you write them a sales copy of how they make millions using a push-button system that generates $1,000 - $3,000 & $5,000 commissions while they sit on the beach drinking Coronas?

      Don't blame the OP for promoting a signature like that, blame the dream-selling gurus who keep on telling newbies how they can generate money using a DONE-FOR-YOU system that takes 10 minutes to setup and that can pour their bank accounts with CASH.

      So you know nothing about Internet Marketing but you suddenly start promoting such systems because, hey, you've been told that you can make residual income plus win a free car if you get enough suckers go through your funnel.

          Listen Business Man,

          This guy is promoting something which is a product from Clickbank and as I have found from the link on his signature it links to this page here.

          So what he did essentially was he took the income screenshots and the headline directly from the offer that he's promoting.

          He didn't FAKE anything but the way he's promoting (or should I say preselling) the offer is all wrong.

          Instead of saying "I've Made People $3,500 to $25,000 Monthly With Google & Clickbank Using a Simple System" he could've said something like "This simple system made ordinary people go from zero to $3,500 and $25,000 monthly using Google & Clickbank".

          Suddenly, the whole scenario changes.

          But it's clear that the guy knows nothing about affiliate marketing and promoting stuff online and how things should be done properly.

          We all had to start somewhere and probably made a few mistakes like this.

          This is MY opinion and I'm writing to the OP so that he knows where his mistakes are and how to promote stuff in the future.

          I never said that I'm OK with people lying. But some people are just beginners and make simple mistakes.

          Let's give them a chance.

              I don't think he's defending him, per se, just simply pointing out that we were all newbies at one time or another and none of us knew everything right from the beginning. Also, everyone makes mistakes along the way.

              That said, I'm getting the vibe from this thread that it was only created for one purpose, and that is signature promotion. I came to this conclusion by looking at the OP's prior threads/posts.

              I think it's likely that the "first sale" that is being spoken about (if it's real), is a commission from the product that is being pre-sold in the OP's sig link.

              If this is true, I think that the OP is not as much of a newbie as some people think. While the OP is certainly not a professional by any means, I think it's safe to say that he knows right from wrong in this case. It's certainly not right to create a false "first sale" thread for the sole purpose of promoting a signature link.

              On the other hand, anyone who would do so and consider it a valid and ethical way to promote a product must have very little knowledge about how real affiliate marketing should be done. That, or the person isn't interested in promoting ethically.

              I'm not sure what the deal is here, but it looks shady to me.

              That said, everybody starts somewhere, but now that the OP has been told that this is not actually ethical, maybe the OP will change his signature link and not continue to abuse the forum like this anymore. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    As I was clicking over to the marketplace page another figure caught my eyes. It was a commission payment for $26.30. I hollered at my wife, "Hey, I think I finally sold something". . What's crazy is that the sale was 2 weeks ago.
    That's so cool, and it's funny that the same thing happened to me last week. I've had a clickbank account for years and never really focused on it, then last week just happened to check my clickbank and I'd also made my first sale and it was from the week before! Don't really know where the sale came from, but I was really chuffed!

    Good job on your first sale! I remember mine. Over 10 years ago now. Make a whopping $3.48 as an affiliate. Not much, but it changed the course of my entire life!
