    Hey guys!

    I'd like to get back to my roots of selling somethin' strange for a little bit of affiliate change :D... quite simply because it's a blast. It's super addictive to open up an affiliate account in the morning to see if any sales came in from the day before/overnight. Plus, of course, spending $ on dumb stuff ain't too shabby either :).

    So here's the challenge:

    1. Make a single clickbank sale with NO investment whatsoever. Zero. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Zippo. I'll use nothing but a pair of full testicles, laptop and functional brain.
    2. Additionally, I'm currently visiting a 3rd world country, with a shaky internet connection. The lights sometimes go off for a full day.

    The thread doesn't end until I post a picture with cash in hand.

    Can a random person from ANY country in the world with enough knowledge really tap into the world of online affiliate marketing and earn a living?

    If you can make 1 sale, you can make 1000 sales. This is exactly what this thread is about.

    Tools:

    Logo creator - cost, $0 (courtesy of TPB).
    Microsoft Powerpoint
    Standard laptop microphone

    Traffic sources:

    Blogspot
    Wordpress
    Youtube
    Slideshare

    I'll share everything I did in this journey (spoonfeed as much as possible) except for my niche + any secret website tricks I use that would jeopardize my whole operation if discovered.

    LET'S GET IT!

    Your next journey thread should be making a clickbank sale using just your mind.

    good luck!

    Okay, so my basic strategy is this:

    traffic ---> youtube + wordpress + slideshare ----> blogspot ----> affiliate link ----> sale

    Now, I obviously don't have the right tools to dominate the front pages of youtube or google so the best gamble will be making a bunch of pages and videos, hoping one of them catches, rinsing and repeating. Just went through the clickbank marketplace and found a decent niche. It looks a bit competitive, but fortunately it's mostly filled with amateurs and unoptimized sites. Going to create the necessary accounts then select the first product.

    None of that, please :), esp stuff belongs in the lounge not in serious subs.

    Wait, so you were not being serious in those threads? ;)

    BTW, your journey is over once you post at MAX 5 times on different subreddits without getting your post removed. Minimum 1 sale guaranteed. Watch.

    Many of my first affiliate marketing sales were made without investing a penny.

    It's a simple journey, but perhaps it'll show some members that you don't always need money to get started in affiliate marketing.

    Good luck, @pewep!

    I am haha, but in a way I'm not because BHW was never the proper environment to discuss spirituality. I've been posting a lot fewer experiences because I don't think it's really very productive for anyone :D.

    About reddit - really? Huh, I'll add that to my traffic list after setting up everything else. I kind of would like to try seeing if a "stable" stream of daily sales can be made rather than a short burst then nothing.

    Haha it's all good bro :D.
    Thanks man! Yeah, I think a lot of people think X methods are now outdated or it's impossible to make any $ without investing something. I guess we'll see.
    Thanks mate!

    I posted on reddit once with my ecommerce site that looked like shit, loaded like a turtle, and had chinese logos in the images with low res pixelated images, but managed to pick up $200 in sales, so it's definitely a form of traffic you want to look into. Note that I spent $0 on this because I made a new account and posted! Got 10 upvotes for a review copy though. This is a measly $1 thing though, so I'm sure I would've still gotten a lot of sales.

    Damn, that's impressive! Was it in the bigger subs? I'm assuming I'll get flagged pretty quickly for spamming, but on the other hand I could try writing a 500 word article stuffed with a few aff links and see how it goes..

    Wow, as someone who would like to try to learn a little about affiliate and Clickbank, I think this will be interesting! Who knows, maybe in September I will be able to start my own journey about how a Clickbank n00b like me started there! Anyway, good luck (and obviously I will watching your thread)

    That's why you have to post around 5 times to ensure you get a minimum of at least 1 sale. Some subreddits will remove your post immediately, some will not notice it until a few hours after which was the case for me. The subreddit I posted in for the $200 in sales contained 9k users.

    Great! :) Best of luck to the both of us.

    Very good idea man, thanks so much for the advice :)! I'll definitely do that after I put up everything else.

    Alright guys, I have the main keyword the whole operation will be built around. It's got 10k-100k searches with lowish competition.

    To do:
    - Build and fully customize my youtube page
    - Build free blogspot + wordpress blogs and customize the main pages with 2 different articles
    - Get an account at slideshare + scribd and customize them for the keyword

    Salesman is not real salesman if he can't do it without spending. Every guy who can make "sales" paying facebook ads, adwords, bing, but cannot do it for free, isn't actually real salesman. Its like buying a bot, and then claiming you are developer. Even worse, guys who always have negative ROI, and believing they are IMers already. Same goes for expert crypto guys, professional gamblers etc

    Amen to that. It just feels good to make money out of (basically) thin air :D.

    Oh hell. If you aren't following this, you must be dead.

    Let me know if you need help with the content on your sites. If it's in a niche I'm comfortable writing in I'll do them for free.

    Just for you. ;)
