MY FIRST CLICKBANK SALE!

41 replies
Hey fellow warriors. .....I am really excited because I just noticed that last week I made my first and only sale via clickbank ever! The purchase was a panic attack product for roughly $23.00

I am currently doing press release marketing and wanted to know if there was any software for press releases that will help speed this whole process up! :confused:My birthday is this upcoming tuesday and I am trying to make some money for the holidays. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Making money for the holidays will be a great bday gift to myself right now because I desperately need it.

    Congrats I hope you have many more to come. You should start a self hosted Wordpress blog and start up a mailing list and try turning it into a real online business. You will make a lot more sales down the road!

    Good Freakin' Job!

    One sale is ONLY the start to more to come. It only takes
    ONE to see it's possible before you move forward taking
    certain actions with a conviction it will already work...and
    than you'll start seeing 1 sale a day, than 2, than 3, and
    so on.

    It's nice to be able to pay off debt, pay off bills, and do
    extra fun things with money -- especially from clickbank
    sales...there's something about making money without a
    job with profits that makes life so much more enjoyable.

    Congrats. Keep working.

    Keep it up. I think you could definitely scale up with article marketing too. Good luck with your future sales. I remember the first sale I made. When I opened my account I saw $90 and was jaw-dropped. Apparently made 2 sales almost in the same time with a few seconds interval. Good times those were.

  • Yeah, I remember getting my first sale via ClickBank. I believe it was also in the Panic Attack niche. Well done!

    Keep plugging away, until you earn enough to actually get a check!

      Yes, that's right. You will not see that money for some time. I would keep working on this vigorously.

      First there is the minimum threshold, then the time lag, then there is the 5 different payment methods clause, and don't forget about the dollar a pay-period dormant account deduction, and then the processing fee, and then that extra annoying fee that is taken right before the check is sent. Clickbank is reliable, pays on time, but those extra little 'events' means that sale is not going to be Christmas money, and is going to be a smaller payout than you hoped.

      It is definitely worth your time, and once you meet that threshold and get those prliminary requirements out of the way, and you get a few paper checks, you can go on to instant deposit.

      As far as Christmas money goes, I would find a local storefront that did not yet have a website and offer to do a simple website for them for a reasonable price. You could also charge for setting them up in Google places. Or give away the Google places listing as a bonus if they hire you. If you are a hosting reseller, you could also host their website for a monthly recurring fee. You could also charge a small monthly maintenance fee and do regular backups and small changes for their site. It has worked for me. It is one of my business models.

        Diane, thanks for detailing all the various little Clickbank policies that will typically delay your first commission check by at least several weeks.

        I suggested in my earlier post that he offer services to get that quick cash, and I'd also like to add that he can offer blog/site set up services in this forum and elsewhere online as well. Granted, he obviously won't be paid as much for this (in comparison to setting up sites for local businesses), but he could make up for it in terms of volume. Of course, all this is moot if he doesn't want to work for it. Yes, there is work involved and it may require you stepping out of your comfort zone, but I have no doubt you could pick up at least several hundred dollars for the holidays by doing this.

    Congrats! It's awesome to see you're taking action and seeing results that is absolutely outstanding! I don't know if you've heard of it but Traffic anarchy is a decent little tool that includes a press release submitter. It isn't the best thing out there honestly but it makes a nice addition to my toolbox.

    Congrats on your sale. If you have 20 bucks to invest... got to webire.com and use their 19.95 plan... its great.

      I second that, webwire seems to get your press release a lot of addition exposure (in comparison to the free sites). Congratulations on your first sale, just remember that affiliate marketing is a slow and steady process, and you just have to do the work consistently (especially if you're just using free traffic/methods) and build up your income over time.

      If you're in need of quick cash, I'd suggest offering services where you can get paid instantly. You seem to write pretty well and you've mentioned that you are doing press releases, so I think that offering article writing services would be a perfect complement to what you're already doing, and this would allow you to pick up some quick cash that you can actually spend for the holidays.
