OMG. I made money.

by Andy Money 69 replies
Hey guys,

Pretty amped. I made my first CB sale the other day. Watching all of those zeros for months was really discouraging. This isn't my first buck online at all but it is my first CB sale, which I feel is just as good. Hooray.

Just sharing.

          I am no stranger to zeros for months on end.

          My first 5 months it took me to make $28.

          It wasn't until month 6 that I finally broke through and made $303.

          I was on top of the world.

          So I know how you feel and how excited you are right now. Just keep at it.
          It's a matter of working each day. I know there are times when you're going
          to feel like packing it in. I am sure that many of us, if not all, have been there.

          Anyway, congrats on your first CB sale. I have no doubt that there will be
          many more to come.

        And on funneling more traffic and creating a product of your own is great too. You know having your own product makes you the most money if you know how to do it correctly.

    Hey Congratulations!

    That feels GREAT!

    I thought i would let you know about a CB policy that you mite run into...
    You have to have 5 sells from 5 different credit card numbers before you can recieve your first check... They do this so people dont buy products from there own link and get a discount on the product.

    I dont promote many CB products, but i put a video on youtube a had 2 sells, about 1 month later i was trying to think why i had not recieved my check... I contacted CB support and they told me this was the case.

    I thought i would let you know so you dont run into the same frustration!

    GREAT job on the sale!

    Keep it up...

    Hope it helps

    stuff that doesn't appear to be causing sales.

    Congratulations, and continued success!
    That advice can literally make you a multimillionaire. It's so easy once you know the "code". You've cracked it buddy, so go replicate, duplicate, syndicate...

    P.S

    It's a great feeling seeing those figures in CB, but just wait until you get to the point of seeing that happen daily...it's freakin surreal...

                    First sale is the hardest one! And the most memorable too! I still remember the name of my first customer. Heck! I am in personal touch with her even TODAY! I remember the exact amount... $7

                      Making a first sale is like grabbing the tip of a monkey's tail.
                      Now you can pull the monkey (or money?) to you.

                        Yeah the CB rule about a min of 5 sales from 5 different CC with at least one being a Visa was an eye opener. Also, if some of your customers use paypal, it doesn't count toward the 5 minimum. I made 4 sales in July totaling $206 and couldn't understand why I had not received a check yet and this was the reason why.

                        CB needs to come up with a better system for tracking cheaters like comparing ip addresses or something. That rule is worse than those 1 up or 2 up businesses where you lose your first 2 sales to your upline.

                        I'm not sure where those sales came from. One came in before I wrote an article on ezinearticles. Then the other 3 came after the article. I also post daily on 2 forums and receive a lot of click thrus so I'm not sure which method was responsible for the sales.

                        I remove the link from my sig line here and in the other forum to see if I can pinpoint where the sales came from so I can repeat them. I think I'll start by writing another article to see what happens and let you guys know how it goes.

                          Congratulations to you - I remember my first sale with clickbank, it felt so good.

                          Unfortunately I didn't get that many more and I did fall foul of the 5 payment, not paypal rule.

                          The other thing I found about that was, if you then have a certain amount of time where you don't get any more sales, you start being charged a percentage and CC took those payments from the money on sales sitting in my account, which eventually ate it up then the charges were taken from my MC.

                          As I switched directions because I knew I was not good at selling CB stuff and couldn't afford to have payments taken from my MC I eventually had to cancel my account with CB.

                          I did that a month ago and this last week I noticed the same £13.01 charge taken by CB on my MC - not very happy as I had already had the cancellation email from them the previous month, HOWEVER their customer service was very good and fast and when I emailed in about it this week, I received an email telling me the charge would be refunded and that this would properly cancel any future payments.

                          Sorry to put a downer on your success though, not my intention, just want to make sure you and others have fully read up on how CB works so you don't lose the money you earned.

                          Take the advise these guys have given you and run with it, you will do great and I wish you much good fortune

    Congrats... too bad ClickBank requires 5 separate sales from 5 different people (not counting PayPal purchases) including at least one Visa and one Mastercard Credit Cards before they disburse any money.

    I'm sitting on some clickbank money through some FB ads, but can't get it because all my sales end up being paypal. It's really frustrating.

      How much was the CB item you were selling? Reason I ask is because a few people I know keep around $50 bucks or less in their paypal account to make online purchases. If you sale a product that's $100, maybe it will weed out the PP people.

      This makes me curious about something. After you have 5 sales/5 cc, do you have to make another set of 5 sales before getting paid the second time or is this just a one time thing? If I have to do 5 more sales, I might have to move on to something else outside of CB, or start paying for advertisement to get more exposure. Just a thought.

      I know that feeling - I have done odds and ends over the months, and lost a few a $1s each month of inactivity AND still haven't passed the requirement. I have a few $100s in there not, but I can't get my hand on it!!

      Will have to make a concerted effort to do something about that.

      But Congrats to the OP, it is real exciting. I remember running around the living room (where computer is) and whooping!
