    Geez lol 5 years? Have you taken action in those 5 years? That seems pretty depressing. Congrats though.

    Congrats man. But I had tried to promote your products in those 5 years. May, you would have got much more commission.

    I can sympathize because I haven't been successful with CB products either. There must be other affiliate sites that offer products which haven't been promoted over and over again!

    It just shows how sticking in there helps. I waited for three years before my main site could convert. I now have a steady income.

        Congrats. It is nice to see the first Clickbank sale. Just work hard from now on. The dissapointment I got after my first sale was I didn't get any more and after 90 days without any other sales Clickbank will start getting 1 dollar every two weeks from the earned money. And the thing is you cannot collect the money because you need to have at least 5 sales and 2 ways of payment. So just go to work and get those sales fast.

          What??? I have received Clickbank checks many times and I never knew about this 2 payment thing. Is this a new policy of Clickbank's or have they always had this in place?

          Almost everyone that has any advice about affiliate marketing will say NOT to have two forms of payment, because if they chose the payment option that doesn't link to your affiliate link, then there goes your commission.

          And if this is a Clickbank policy, then why am I still getting Clickbank checks? I don't have 2 ways of payment on any of my websites.

    Congrats on the first sale dude.

    The first is always exciting.


    Golden Nugget: I think that when it come to promoting a

    ClickBank product, being very active when it first launches

    can give you a tremendous edge especially SEO-wise.

      Okay, now this is what I don't like. You aren't honest in your marketing. You are marketing through deception like so many internet marketers do.

      I clicked on your 50 dollar a day link, and paid the $5.00 for the report which you said would show me the exact methods you use to make money online, advanced topics to raise my earnings, and a bunch of other garbage.

      Not only did it NOT tell me any of that AFTER I paid for the report, the whole report was nothing but an upsell for a $7.00 product that would THEN tell me how to do all of this.

      Didn't order the $7.00 product. Why would I believe you about that when you said the $5.00 report would tell me how to do all that stuff, and it didn't??? I realize this isn't a bunch of money, but it's the principle of the thing.

      I'm not going to bother asking for my money back, though I really should, but I get the feeling you wouldn't honor that pledge either.

      It was also through Jzvoo instead of Clickbank, and I know Jvzoo doesn't really care if a customer gets jilted or not. No doubt that's why so many scam artists are turning to them as their payment processor.

    Good luck for more commission checks. I remember my first check in 2006 which was for $25 and I can never forget that. Take a picture and put it in an album!

    That is what we call "PATIENCE" in IM. Congrats. You have made it. It can be seen that you really believed and new that you will be able to make money online. This is why you haven't given up during 5 years. Surely you have been depressed most of the time because of struggling. But the most important is that you have waited instead of quiting.
    CONGRATULATIONS for your efforts. I wish you success on making more money.

    Well done for being persistent. Sometimes it takes a while. Hopefully now you have done it once it will become easier to achieve it more often now.

    Congratulations. I have sold lots of Clickbank products, but was not having a lot of luck with the IM products that I was the most excited about.

    It appears that IM customers are harder to convert--I finally figured out that the best way to sell IM products are to make the products myself, then find people with lists to help me sell them. Finally, when I have buyers of my IM products, I get those people on my list, and that list does OK with other IM affiliate products.

    This process takes time and a lot of work.

    Congratulations on your first sale! It's a sort of high when you get that first commission. Figure out what brought that sale to you and do more of what ever it was. Be it blog, advertisement, or article written.

    Hi
    Congrats! Wondering why did it take you so long to make that first sale? Is it that tough? Can you tell us a little more about your marketing strategy? I haven't yet started any affiliate but am wondering if it's really that difficult?
