My first check from clickbank! Yay me!

86 replies
So my first check from clickbank is being sent on the 9th so like 2 days. Its for $1,555. I found my niche I found a way to advertise and it paid off, my next check so far is going to be 2,400ish. I CANT BELIEVE I FINALLY DID IT. Now I want to know if its sending on the 9th how long until I can expect it via mail since I cant opt for direct deposit yet. I live in the united states. Is it normally within a week. Im hoping to have money for christmas shopping.

Anyone reading this who is about to give up on clickbank DONT! Just think really hard, search for a good product, find your target customers and find a way to reach them and get them to listen to what you have to offer. If you can do that its so easy to make money...

Thanks ahead of time for your answers!

    Congratulations that much feel really great.

    My checks usually arrive a week after they have been released. I live in portugal though so it can take them longer to get them to me via international mail. We are not allowed direct deposit though which is a real shame.

    kind regards

    Believe it or not I am using no ppc or article marketing. Im not driving traffic in any way. I doing the most simple form of advertising and that is posting links to the product/niche. Its all about how many people you get to click the link.

    This is what I shall share.
    I searched long and hard, not so much for the perfect product but for a product with a pitch page that didnt look like a pop up because for real alot of those pitch pages look like advertisment/pop up i found one with alot more web development in it (NOT just picutes/text/video) it looked professional and then I made a hoplink and spammed it. (Yes im a spammer) in places where I found alot of active people who would see it who might be interested in the specific product. And out of the 4,500 people who clicked the like (hops) I got like 75 sales. so the conversion rate was not so great but 75 x$30 on average made me that money.

    I know thats very broad but I hope it helps someone.

      lol i didnt even read that one. Well..another method, but i would be careful.

      It's good you selected an attractive page and not one of those "junk" looking ones with popups!

        Man that's a big check for being your first! When I first got into internet marketing, my first check was for around $200. It was the best feeling ever. The greatest thing about it is, the feeling never goes away. I still get excited when checks come in for me.

        Congrats! If you didn't know clickbank offers direct deposit too, that way you don't have to wait too long to get your $.

    Awesome first cheque, most definitely! Congrats to you. Not sure I would consider your 'spamming' method sustainable (or possibly not ethical ) but hey, Happy Christmas to you.

    I hope you can find a way to make this a long-term thing. I believe anyone can do it if I can. It's just a traffic game.

    If I could give you a tip...maybe you might want to shift your spamming methodology to something that will give you a better long-term ROI. Perhaps list-building, which is somewhat similar but mostly above-board

    p.s. - the feeling of that first cheque is incredible, isn't it! It truly inspired me to think I finally stopped spending money (on IM products) and started making money from "thin air", as my girlfriend likes to say

    I don't see what you're doing is spamming. If you're posting the link in places relevant to the clickbank offer, that is not spamming, in my opinion.

    Yea I have read their codes of conduct and I called it spamming but its not like im just posting a link over and over. I am also mentioning how it is a benefit to the people reading it and how they should check it out and such. So I dont think I will get in trouble for it, and I dont think its bothered anyone. And yes um101 I have purchased a domain and am planning on making my own page with some products and possibly starting ppc now that I am making money so this was really just a start to my marketing.

    Thanks everyone.

    Hi,
    i am glad you made some cash. however telling people you spammed or are a spammer could land you in hot water being as clickbank and reputable vendors specify you may not advertise in that way.

    cool to see someone getting theirs but i totally disagree with the method used if you did that with one of my products you would forfeit all commissions earned and may face legal action as a result depending on how it effected me . sometimes it is best to say you posted links instead of the method for future reference and you never know who is going to see these threads.

    theres nothing wrong with promoting a link in places, hes spamming it in the sense of putting it all over the place im sure but not in the annoying bad sense. hes doing what your suppose to do, promoting it, and obviously hes doing it right and effectively if hes making that much money.

    congrats, most people see much smaller amounts with their first check.

      Yes, when you see the "Date Sent" on your Clickbank account, you can take it literally. That's one thing they don't mess around with. Hell, it's even on their Front Page: "We've paid our clients on time, every time, for 10 years."

      If the mail man/woman comes at the same time every day, you can set your clock to it. One Friday I was expecting to have my Clickbank check by 3:15. Well, by 3:20 I was off to the bank. : )

      Congratulations. It sounds like you will be rewarded well for your ingenuity and imagination.

    Well done Saint. Ultimately when you get into the rhythm and start making it big you'll be able to do a lot for charity too.

    All the best to ya!

    Congratulations on your cheque and for not getting caught spamming If you really did!

    I'd like a cheque like that. I will double my effects to be able to find the perfect Clickbank products.

    To yours and everyone else's success!

    Brian
