    Hello all,

    I'm about to start getting my hands wet with Clickbank for the first time in my IM career. I decided to start a journey thread in order to have that extra boost of motivation and focus social pressure gives, and also as a way to keep logs. I intend to update this thread daily until my goal is achieved, even if only to say "today I couldn't do much because x reason"; as I said, I want this to also be a personal log for me to keep a close look at my work habits. So, enough foreplay; lets get into the details of what I plan to achieve and how I'm gonna achieve it.

    Game plan:

    The raw idea is to upload videos to Youtube, point them to my site and make the Clickbank sales there. Traffic will come from ranking the videos in Google, Youtube and other secondary sources. I'm getting the inspiration from several method/tutorial threads here, but I'm applying a lot of twists to the ideas I got from them.

    My goal is to promote 200 products by the end of the year. Why 200? Simply because that would mean that I have to promote one product every 2 days approximately in order to hit my target, which is very doable, and because it's also a nice round number that appeals to me. I'm not having a money goal in mind, I'll just see where this takes me; I do expect though to be earning at least $100/day from this method alone by the end of the year if all goes well.

    I'll start making the videos myself but to be able to reach the 200 promoted products goal I'll have to outsource video creation at some point, which of course I plan to do once I get the gist of what works and what doesn't.

    I'll divide the big task into 20 sub-tasks. Each one will consist of researching and selecting 10 products and then creating and promoting the related videos. Once I'm done with a batch, I'll go on and research 10 more products, etc, until I reach the 200 promoted products.

    When am I starting? Right now!

    DAY 1

    Done until now: (Being day one, the following has been done today)

    - Researched and selected 10 products
    - Bought the domain for the landing pages/site.

    What else I plan to do today:

    - Start building the landing site.

    Sales made today: 0
    Total sales made until now: 0
    Money made today: $0
    Total money made until now: $0

    I'll experiment with both voice overs and testimonial kind of videos. I'll use one of the many popular video editors available. My aim is to make quality videos so I won't be using animoto and similar stuff for sure. They will be "particular" review videos I would say; that is, a typical review video with one powerful twist I have in mind.


    I'll be updating the journey for Day 2 later today, still got a lot of work to do for this project for the next few hours. My time zone is GMT - 3, so I'll be posting an update toward the end of the day.

    DAY 2

    Spent most of the time working on a standard landing page I'll use for all the products. As the landing page plays a big role in both sales and opt-in leads (more on this below), I made sure to devote enough work time to it. Luckily, I was able to finish it by today. Having a standard landing page model ready, I'm going to be able to pull them out quickly for the rest of the products.

    I wasn't going to, but I decided to include an opt-in form on my landers. I'm one of those that think that in order to increase conversions to a maximum on a sales page, all distractions have to be minimized, with all lights pointing to the sales link. Unfortunately, an opt-in form can be such a distraction IMO. With this in mind, I tried to make it so that the sales link is still on the spotlight, but at the same time filling out the form looks like an irresistible next step after purchasing the product. With this approach I expect get both some of the leads that buy the product as well as those who decide not to buy, so I can market them similar products later. In brief, I'm gonna try to get the best of both worlds: making immediate sales and grab some leads to make the sales later on.

    What I did today:

    - Bought 25 PVA Youtube accounts, which should be ready by tomorrow.
    - Finished the standard landing page I'll use for all the products.
    - Finished landing page for product #1

    Done until now:

    - Researched and selected 10 products
    - Bought the domain for the landing pages/site.
    - Bought 25 PVA Youtube accounts, which should be ready by tomorrow.
    - Finished the standard landing page I'll use for all the products.
    - Finished landing page for product #1

    What do I plan to work on tomorrow:

    - Keep working on the rest of the landing pages for this first batch of products.
    - Start working on the videos.

    DAY 3

    Today was just a crazy day with a lot of offline errands and added to that the fact that I have a night-out with the GF for V day, I won't be able to do pretty much anything for this project today. Fortunately, I have an easy weekend coming so I'll be able to compensate with some extra-work then. My plan for tomorrow will be the plan I originally had for today:

    What I did today:

    - Couldn't do much at all due to a lot of unforeseen errands and Vday.

    Done until now:

    - Researched and selected 10 products
    - Bought the domain for the landing pages/site.
    - Bought 25 PVA Youtube accounts, which should be ready by tomorrow.
    - Finished the standard landing page I'll use for all the products.
    - Finished landing page for product #1

    What do I plan to work on tomorrow:

    - Keep working on the rest of the landing pages for this first batch of products.
    - Start working on the videos.

    DAY 4

    Couldn't do as much work as I would have liked today but I made some nice progress. Finished 4 more landing pages, so now I got 5 landing pages for 5 products all ready. Already decided the standard model I'll use for all my videos so I'll start with them tomorrow if I finish the 5 remaining landers, if not, I'll get to the videos on Sunday.

    I like the fact that I have developed very standardized models that I can quickly repeat again and again without much analysis, saving time in the process and once I start outsourcing this, it will be a piece of cake to do so. I think it will be even possible for me to outsource to local people even though they don't speak a word of English as they would only have to replace product name and some other details here and there; it would be mostly very simple and repetitive manual work, easy to teach. This local outsourcing would be very convenient for me due to the cheap prices I can get thanks to the favourable currency conversion.

    What I did today:

    - Built 4 more landing pages.

    Done until now:

    - Researched and selected 10 products
    - Bought the domain for the landing pages/site.
    - Bought 25 PVA Youtube accounts, which should be ready by tomorrow.
    - Finished the standard landing page I'll use for all the products.
    - Finished the first 5 landing pages.

    What do I plan to work on tomorrow:

    - Finish the remaining 5 landing pages for this first batch
    - Start working on the videos if finish with the landers.

    Sales made today: 0
    Total sales made until now: 0
