    Let me start by saying this is actually my second Journey thread. My first was when I was testing our Kindle Publishing and after a lot of hard work I felt that Kindle was starting to feel like too much hard work for too little reward. Sure I started (and still am) making money but with the hours invested, the income generated just didn't feel like it was time well spent.

    My Kindle Journey however, was not a complete failure. It actually gave me the motivation to write a decent ebook that I can sell via Clickbank. So this is where I am at now :)

    On Saturday I had my product approved and activated on Clickbank and I thought it may be a good idea to start a Journey thread to help me keep track of my progress and to share my experiences with you guys.

    I wrote a guide for a popular TCG (Trading Card Game) called Hearthstone. The game had over 1 million players during the open beta and has recently come out of beta. For those that don't know Hearthstone, it was created by Blizzard, the same people who made World of Warcraft. The game is free to play and Blizzard makes money through micro transactions within the game.

    Where I'm at Now

    I'm currently splitting my time between recruiting affiliates and self promotion of the website.

    Self promotion has mainly been from building up content on the website and posting videos on Youtube.

    So far I have had 2 sales (1 via Clickbank and 1 pre-Clickbank which was generated by an affiliate). These 2 sales alone have already generated more than I make a month from my Kindle books! I also have around 8 new subscribers to my list and I have an autoresponder in place to help drive more sales.

    I'm also currently split testing slight changes to the sales page to help increase conversions. Although my sales page isn't perfect, the traffic/conversion ratio has been pretty decent.

    Goals

    Continue to promote product and recruit affiliates until I hit the $200 day mark. After this I plan on releasing my second product and building that up to $200 a day also :)

    Stats

    Sales Non-Affiliate: 1 ($14)
    Sales via Affiliate: 1 ($6)

    Thanks. I mainly post on affiliate/marketing forums at mo. Thought a lot of them require you to be registered for x amount of days or have x amount of posts so I'm still working on that. I have also submitted to a number of different affiliate directories, though the traffic from them seems to be very little. Could be that some are waiting to get approved still.

    As a new Clickbank product I've also been getting traffic from places like cbengine and other similar sites. It's difficult to say at this time how many of the visitors will start promoting the product, only time will tell I guess.

    Well my main traffic source at the moment is Youtube (some natural some paid). I also have some affiliates sending a small amount of traffic at as well.

    Sure each week I'll post screenshots of my earnings :)

    Hey good luck on your journey. When I first got into ebook creation I read through your thread. I'm still on the ebook journey though.

    I recently created an ebook to sell on clickbank. I was wondering if you have any tips on how to recruit affiliates to promote it?

    It's a diet/recipe type book but it's the only one for this particular diet, very similar to paleo.

    Have no real tips to give at the minute as I'm currently working through this stage myself. What I can say is make some threads on some of the popular marketing forums. I've managed to recruit a few this way so far.

    As I figure more stuff out, I'll be sure to update this thread and share it with you guys :)
