Hi - I just thought I'd share this quick story. I am a newbie here and in the IM thing. I've posted and asked questions and I've been on here since end of last year but actually nevertook actions until about a couple of weeks ago. I purchased a website (found a guy here in the forum) and he did a good job. I got my domain and web hosting shortly after (it was actually last week). I haven't gotten my auto resopnder yet because I still have to tweak my website (remove some pages and change links of pictures to my affiliate links but still have to learn how). Anyways, I have not logged on to my clickbank account since I know I haven't really promoted my website in anyway but I know that I created a fanpage on facebook and been commenting on posts and stuff like that. All my "Likes" have been just my friends. Well, I just thought I'd log on to my clickbank account this morning and WOW! I saw a sale from 4 days ago (Friday). It wasn't much but it was a sale and I never thought I'd post my 1st $$ Sale until way later or a few months from now. Anyways, I'm happy. It's not much but I know whatever I did worked and I just have to remember what I did and keep doing that same thing.... Now i have to think hard what the heck I did to make the sale... haha

    Congrats! The first commission always feels awesome. It just gives you a taste of what's possible. All you need know is a solid system in place so that you can duplicate your success. Oh, when you sign up with an autoresponder service like Aweber ($1 trial for the first month(, there is a tutorial that walks you through setting it up.

    Yours in online success,
    Joey

      might want to go back into CB and make some tracking ID's to add to your affiliate referral links. So you can track back to what you're doing right.

        I actually promoted a product from clickbank (as an affiliate). Is there a tracking option out there or on clickbank to see where the click came from? All I saw on the report was CAD which was Canadian Dollar.. I guess it came from Canada but I wanted to know if it was from a forum or from FB...

    Congratulations.

    However, knowing what you did is pretty important. Like someone else mentioned, make some tracking ID's so you know whats going on.

      You have done pretty well making your first Clickbank sale so soon after you started . Many try for much longer before they make that first sale.

      Well done and important that you try and track where that sale originated from or any future sales , so that you know where your target market is and how they are responding to certain sales copy.

      Thanks... Can you give me options on how to track my sales on clickbank? Is it within clickbank that I need to pay for?


      To everyone else - thank you! I was really happy.. and surprised as I was not expecting anything until a few weeks, maybe months from now as I barely started 2 weeks ago. Now I just have to keep working on it to get my 2nd and 3rd sales.. and hopefully more to come!

        First of all Congratulations .

        No you don't need to pay. Goto Clickbank Marketplace> Category > Select product (click on Promote button).

        The pop-up window will open> Tracking ID (Optional)
        type tracking id for example if you market on facebook then type anything like fb, facebook or fbook etc..

        You can track your sales from clickbank. Log into your clickbank account, then click Reporting > Analytic and you will get details of your hop.
        Praying for your greatest success in clickbank.

    I started making sales with CB product about 6 months ago from Squidoo lens , then Squidoo locked my lens so I built my own website ( first one Ive ever built ). Took me about 4 months to get my site ranked decent and making sales again .

    I logged in CB this morning and it says payment sent $293.00 , although I have made sales here and there over the past 6 months this will be my first check ever from working online , had to meet all CB's cdr and all that, cant wait to get that check in the mail and use it to try other things and more of the same ofcourse , and I know Ive made atleast $165.00 so far for the next payday, I love this stuff !!
