My First $1500 From Clickbank!... 'YOU' Can Do It Too!

44 replies
To date, I have had $1566 in sales from Clickbank! But more importantly, I do ZERO ad-words advertising and have never spent a cent on ads. ... but, maybe I should. There are so many things that I could've done and simply haven't yet. I am also a HUGE procrastinator. $1500 is NOTHING compared to all the things I could've done.

Think about it, like Steve Ballmer said: 'We are just barely scratching the surface of what's REALLY possible!'

If I can do it, ANYONE can do it. So, YOU, yes, 'YOU', you have every tool you would conceivably need... now get out there and do damage! Do it now!

I'm out. The weekend is on my doorstep.
Thanks WF. You guys are awesome!

    That's great, Brandon! I must thank you for posting your results and giving us a proof that making money online is possible. There are just too many people around us who are negative about internet marketing. Thanks for being one of the few people on this earth who are the living proof that internet marketing is alive and working all the time!

      Well done. I have had some success with Clickbank. I like that fact that you got all your traffic from search engines and other free sources. PPC starts eating into your profits fast.

    Thanks. You're very welcome. It's the least I can do.

    WF is awesome and there are a lot of great people here. Disagreements will surely flare up here and there, but I try not to get involved in the negativity if I can help it. Life's too short for that. : )

      Certainly. I would be happy to:

      1. It DOES take patience and persistence. Find something you are passionate about and something you believe would be of value to someone else. Internet Marketing (or ANY marketing for that matter) is a situation of Problem vs. Solution. The buyer/customer/client has a problem and YOU know how to provide him or her with a solution. Pretty easy. The more in demand the problem, the more lucrative (ignoring your competition for a moment) your solution.

      2. Take action! If you have a site or blog or opt-in list, great... now it's time to put it to use! Start pushing those affiliate links or those 'Add to Cart' buttons. Do it now! If you created a site and a product, great... pay your $49.95 to Clickbank and get those 'Add to Cart' buttons on your site NOW!

      3. There are many different possible sources of traffic. Time to start thinking outside the box. When a prospect of mine is using my trial version, how hard is it for that prospect to figure out how to get back to my site and buy the FULL version? I figured out the hard way that it is actually 'pretty damn hard' for the prospect to get back to my site when they have credit card in hand and ready to click Pay Now. YIKES! Not a good situation to be in! One day it hit me, add a 'Click here to order now!' to the menu bar of the trial. That's right, the menu bar at the top of my program literally reads: File | Setup | Help | -->Click here to order now!

      I added a few lines of code (very easy to do) to make the program open the user's preferred browser and go to my order page when 'Click here to order...' is clicked. Heck, I can even add my tracking IDs to it!

      It was so simple and so brilliant that I was kicking myself for not doing it years earlier. More than a few prospects have purchased this way.

      4. That's one of the important keys: Laser focused traffic. I am more likely to get conversions from someone that clicked the order link in the trial version than someone casually searching for my keywords on Google. With that it mind, laser focused traffic has MUCH more weight than general traffic.

      That's about it... so far. ; ) I average approx. 1,000 page views a month. Pretty tiny. But again, I have the luxury of some of that traffic being laser focused. : )

      Again, there is like a 1,000,000,001 (billion and one) things I HAVEN'T done yet. There is a massive amount of work ahead of me. It will keep me busy forever. : )

      So anyone struggling to make their first conversions, get out there and take action.

      Like Gary Vaynerchuk said: '... Come home from work, have dinner, pet your dog, kiss your wife: from 7:00 to 2:00, you can do damage.'

      Cheers!

        For those who have PMed, my latest post above has been my most successful method to date.

        ...

        And remember, if you can find a way to add value to the problems of others, conversions are almost certain.

        My case: See...I used adwords on a xmas lightning business pack I was selling. No one bought it. Although, I was able to have 28 subscribers within two weeks period. Now, I'm stuck with that number, not knowing where to go from here. The will is there. The right technique is what's missing, i guess.

      I haven't built out anything on Facebook or social media. I post to Twitter, get mentioned or re-tweeted occasionally, but I don't get traffic from that. So in my case, twitter isn't successful for me... yet. ; )

      Good question. Answer: Averaging $100/day in 2011. $36,500 in sales by Dec. 31st.

      I'm planning to 'scale it up' and offer as many products as possible. My first product is just the beginning.

      I had more modest goals written down... sort of like milestones in a really big project. But, life is too short for that. Better to set a really challenging, yet attainable goal. This year will be exciting.

    Sounds like you're on to something, now that you've found a system that works for you. Keep doing it, keep improving, keep testing.

    You will make more than $36,500 this year, I'm sure. Good luck.

    Very motivating to hear this Brandon. With the right mindset you can achieve anything. You just have to get back up when you get knocked down.

    More money to you in 2011 Brandon.

    P.S - I can't send you a PM as I don't have enough posts yet.

    I just checked out your website and I think if you replaced the 'Doylesoft' Header at the top with a proper banner that says 'Doylesoft' it would look alot better, keep it light ofcourse, I do like the website it's simple and effective (Ooops I used two-thirds of your sites slogan there by accident lol) Anyway, if you would prefer a banner there I'll happily do you one free of charge.

    Ross.

    Well for one, you should make it a vocation to think positively and stop procrastinating. I agree, you can do better. Much better!

    And No, not anyone can do it! You succeeded Brandon but not as much as you would like, and that's fine, but from now on, I suggest you give more of yourself to achieve your short and long term goals. You can do it Brandon, only you can! Nobody else but you!

      Wow! Thanks again everyone.

      @Ross Yes, I need to create a logo/banner. I have some tools to do it, but I don't specialize in graphic design. I will be in touch for sure. : )

      @donhx It took me years to reach this point. One of my greatest successes came recently in September. I had $319 in sales in 30 days. If I were doing that month after month, I could cover: electric, water, natural gas, cable and Internet for my family each month, no sweat.

      It's only onward and upward from here.

        Also, another thing I forgot to mention:

        I do have an opt-in list of about 50 subs.

        I have had a sale or two from my email list. There IS in fact 'money in the list.' : )

        And if you are a Clickbank Vendor, you can track hits to your Order Form using this URL format:

        http:// 1.yourvendornickname.pay.clickbank.net/?tvid=abc123

        Where '1' is your product number (you can have up to 500 products); and 'abc123' is your tracking ID. : )

        Easy! I wish I knew about Tracking IDs in my prior email campaigns. It would've made my life easier. : )

        Good luck in your Clickbank ventures!
        Please write here with your success stories.
