    I knew something was wrong when i logged into my Clickank account today, sales and hops dropped ALOTI logged into my Youtube account and confirmed what happened: your video is deleted bla bla bla.. I kinda knew this would happen eventually, but damn! I feel so beaten Down and depressed that my first thought was to give up on this whole thing altogether, lol
    I made an average of $500 Weekly, and now it will drop down to like 50-100 Got to get back to the game and scale up even harder!! No way im giving up! It might help to watch some of those inspirational videos on Youtube, or read some of the Clickbank + Youtube journey threads here which got me started in the first place!

    A few advices for the newbies: Dont think its easy, it takes time and patience, plus some creative thinking
    Good comments can double or even triple your sales!
    Backlinks is very important for your rankings!
    Keyword research, do it properly, it will pay off!!

    peace out!

    Was it just one video doing this or did you lose a ton of videos?

    If you can successfully market Clickbank products through Youtube then scale it up.

    I always say the same thing when I come across threads like this, always work in rev share, the work that keeps giving and giving. Many of times in my IM life I have had sites practically all gone, yet due to rev share, I have always been able to get back up before it affected my life.

    Where you earn money on the lifetime of a customer. Take casinos for an example, every time I sign people up to a casino, I get a percentage of what they lose. I have players who I have been making money off from since 2009.

    See if all my sites disappeared tomorrow I would still have customers playing who I had previously signed up, my money would go down, but not to anything drastic.

    The sharing of profits/losses. Basically, you make a portion of they make. Which is what clickbank is essentially based upon.

    To the OP: you said it exactly right. Scale it up, try new methods, and stay on your game. Good luck.

    Edit: Mickyfu answered it properly.

    I've had bad experience with rebilling products, too many who cancels...

    I sent the viewer directly to the sales page ;)

    That sucks man, watched your journey. Why do you think it got deleted? what did youtube say, any messages?. Anything you would do different to make it more secure like no direct linking to the site or something. Well if you have done it before you can do it again, but ya that's a lot of money to lose but it happens to all of us at one time or another. That's why if your in the IM game another lesson is make sure you save a bunch of that money you're earning, you never know what the rug can get pulled from under you.

    I was making $100 per day and had 150 videos on my YT account, then I woke up one day to see my whole account was banned because of 1 video.
    I know how you feel man! It really sucks

    Don't mean to kick you when you're down, but you should know the risks of promoting clickbank videos, cpa videos, or any affiliate videos on yt. I've learned my lesson with this as well.. The few videos i do put up these days, i don't expect them to last and treat them as short term money makers while working on longer term goals.

    Well, I knew it would be taken down at some point, just didn't expect it that early.. The message I got was that my video was flagged as inappropriate content, pretty sure that a competitor flagged it down!
    things i would do different? Nothing, except improving my video and make it look less spammy.. Im not mad at my situation, its all part of the game.. Now, with my knowledge i can milk this cow so FREAKING hard that it would regret it was even borned!!

    My whole intention by posting this was to let you guys know that stuff like this happens, and when it DOES HAPPEN, you just need to scale even more!!
    I haven't spent a single cent of the money i earned so far ($5600) infact.. Im about to get my first Clickbank check ever!! :)

    Okay so revshare is similar to recurring income i.e. customer for life.

    I would think most companies would make it a one time payment and be greedy. OR promise recurring, but make it one time only.

    What other companies do this besides casinos?

    My case is more weird.

    Well, in the early months of this year I would bank about $1K per day, but my sites were all affected from May and July G updates. Managed to get back on my feet so the past and current month, I would average about $500-800 per day with Clickbank.
    My sources are from yt videos, but mainly from ranking my pages.

    So here's the strange thing... my sites are all still ranking well, BUT my earnings dropped to $300 per day for the past 5 days.
    But today is even weirder, it dropped to just $150 (after several refunds and only a few sales).

    I don't know if I'm being shaved or just seasonal sales. But after what I've experienced, I've concluded that CB isn't a good reliable source of income. I'm brainstorming and creating new sources of income now.
