My first ClickBank Sale :O

68 replies
I remember making my first website a few months back and I thought it was a complete failure and dropped support for it.
I've moved over to amazon now but today I thought I would check my rusty clickbank account out of curiosity and i found this

i just started laughing and hugged myself lol
guess I just needed to vent on here

    Awesome work!

    Yes I second that - work out how many hops you had to get the sale and go back to that site and grow it!

    Might be well worth it!

        That is awesome! I am just waiting to have that feeling for the very first time. Perseverance does pay off, though, so I am optimistic.

        Tell us about your site. Have any tips for those of us with all zeros?

          Thanks!

          And..well it was just a test website tbh, but more specifically it's an exercise website for men. And as for tips, stay persistent! and if you ever feel like giving up think of your goals!
          And to go into a bit of detail,
          make sure you have buying keywords<<<
          good content for the visitor <<<
          and affiliate links at the top and bottom of the review/article

          hope this helps

            Oh, I love it! My field is actually health and fitness! I was a personal trainer and group exercise instructor all through school, but when I graduated I thought I'd give the internet marketing thing a try. I thought it was a reasonable choice for income during transitions like moving. Of course, I have yet to actually see evidence of said reason :confused:, but I really am hopeful.

            It's so encouraging to hear that you're out there making it work in the muscle building/weight loss/etc niche. Maybe someday I can put them both together like that.

            Did you follow some kind of plan or system for setting up your site (like Sniper)? Or is this solely your genius shining through Clickbank?

              if you specialize in that field then that's a bonus. You'll be surprised at the things people don't know. I'm sure you could make some quality eBooks with your knowledge and then start selling them on kindle.

              good luck !

    Sounds like somewhat of a lucky sale, but you should look at the site and how that person got to it and bought the item. Get an idea of what you did right and work from there.

    Congrats! I had an almost identical experience. i put all my affiliate sites on the backburner and focussed on product creation after Google sent them into the outer reaches. When I went back after four months I found sales. it would be nice to say I now know what works, but i feel just as much in the dark as ever.

    This proves that jumping around between opportunities isnt exactly the best approach.

    Learn one thing at a time and stick with it. You could be relatively close to success, before you "give up" and move onto the next BSO.

      Agreed. You need to figure out how to make your current idea work before you move on.

    But you must be commended for taking action. That is the best way to see results. Actions breed results as they say. So congrats for taking the first step. now why you are doing backflips and excited use that to take the next step, which is more action.

    Good going and keep up the good work.

    Hey buddy

    According to me, site-building is the best and safest way to earn some easy monthly passive income.

    Your half-built website is making you income, imagine your fully built website.

    That means your website has the potential to make more. If I were you, I'd build on the website.

    Anyway, congrats!


    Thanks

    Congratulations! Keep up the good work, if it worked once it can work again. Scale up that site and add more content and target more keywords. If you keep skipping around you may end up finding that nothing is working because you don't stick to it long enough to see the results.

    But great work that must've made your day when you saw that

    I know the feeling as many of us here do. One of the affiliates (don't remember which one) starts to dedcut from your acc't when there are no sales within a certain period. Can't recall....Clickbank, C.J., Share-a-Sale, Link Share????? Isn't there controversy about Amazon ?

    It can take a couple months for a website or article to mature enough to generate sales. You can sometimes shorten this period with an aggressive link building campaign, but it's still pretty difficult. I'm not at all surprised that you got your first sale a couple months after giving up. It's happened to me too.

    You should always stick with a project for at least 9 months so you can gauge how effective it will be.

Do more! If you don't give up the sales will come. And you can wake up to you making money! Your goal is to have thousands of pages with your affiliate link in it! Get pushing forward! Never give up!

    Awesome!

    Congratulations on your first CB sale.

    I've yet to make mine, but honestly I haven't done much promotion.

    I tried some "lazy" methods like hiring someone on Fiverr to pass out flyers in major cities with a domain redirect to a CB product sales page, but that didn't work.

    I also tried buying some traffic from Adf.ly, but that didn't produce any sales either.

    Twitter marketing? No again.

    I have to rethink my strategy for promoting products as an affiliate for sure. ;^)

    So I hope you can continue to make sales from your site for a long time to come!

    All the best,
    Demian

    Nice! I remember having the exact sane experience nearly 2 years ago - I went out to get some beer and celebrate .

    It means so much just to get that one sale and finally have conclusive proof that just maybe things can work.
