    Hello BHW,


    Im Themistocles! Saw some cool journeys here and decide to start my own for some of the following reasons:


    - Help you if you have any questions or need advice
    - Get feedback and learn from you guys
    - Keep myself accountable and just writing down the progress, since I visit this forum 3 to 4 times a week it will give me a chance to update the journey and make progress.


    In one niche (not IM) I'm an expert but never sold info product in it (online or offline). I want to teach others in the niche how I made money in it. I can't tell you the niche but to illustrate imagine I'm a dentist, now I want to make some info product to teach other dentists how to make money like I do.


    That's the idea, here's what I want to do, feel free to pitch in.


    - SALES VIDEO. I started with a sales letter in video first I'll make a copy version in text later. That part is done the first version is 20 minutes long. I'll upload to amazon s3
    - DOMAIN. Got a nice domain.
    - WEBSITE. I'm going to make a wordpress site with squeeze page and sales page (video for starters)
    - AUTO-RESPONDERS. Need to make at least 7 for starters will use aweber
    - DOWNLOAD PAGE. For starters to get going I'm just going to make a non password protected page where they can download the course since it's only $37 that's going to be probably no big deal, later I can password protect it.
    - UPSELL. I'm thinking about making a $37 per month coaching of some kind where they get content and newsletter each money, need to work this out so I can get at least 25% upwell conversion. Later the big upwell is coaching for 5 grand but that is down the road and that is just a few who want handholding.
    - PAYMENT PROCESSING. Probably click bank to get going, merchant later, I have one but I can't use it for this just my regular business. They told me for info product I have to apply for a new account.
    - HOME STUDY COURSE. The first version i promised in the sales video is just 7 modules, I'm about to finish module 1, so that will be done this week I hope.
    - KINDLE. If this sells I'm thinking about sending the home study course to e-lance have them write a kindle version for me, then upload that.
    - JV. Not sure if I can get jv at $37 so if I get sales I might have to make a more expensive version to try to get some affiliates.
    - SOLO ADS. My first idea was to promote it with solo ads, so I need to contact ezines in the niche when it's ready.
    - BANNER ADS. I plan to post banners on the next to drive traffic
    - TRACKING. Need something that can track and help rotate so i can split test from email and banner promos.
    - OFFLINE. I might buy a mailing list and run them into a squeeze page, I might have to get a separate domain name so I can track it.


    Ok, that's so far, what else am I missing?

    Sure, will you help with some ideas? I know it can be done, and I know it's not easy, I have made millions before so it's not something that I think is imposible, it's just I have never done anything on Clickbank, but I know it can be done so I plan on doing it.

    Does your niche have a lot of competition?

    The only thing you might want to add to that list is how you promote your site or how people will find you. Everyone is always looking for an expert. Put yourself out on social media and get your site ranked on the search engines. Start blogs promoting your niche, with reviews covering the benefits and all that good stuff.

    Wish I had more to give you but I'm not all too familiar with clickbank. I'm sure other people here with clickbank experience will be able to help you out.

    I have no idea it's my first time on Clickbank, I probably need a week to finish the product then week for sales funnel and probably month just to get some traffic to convert and my guess is a month to get it ramped up, then we can see maybe never maybe 6 months.

    I'll keep everyone posted as I move forward but I'm a stubborn guy so I will do this till the end even if it's a bust but I think it will work maybe not 1M I just pulled that to motivate myself, 100K is fine, the key is the backend for big numbers.

    Quick update I'm on Module 2, I'll see if I can get module 3 today, get the entire product done by the end of the week.

    Also plan out one more thing to work on parallel with finishing the product but not sure what yet, I'll have to think about it while driving today.

    PS: I'm listening to some old seminars while driving for ideas.

    You got a decent plan, one of the best plans I've seen here for a while. Good luck with your journey.

    I know everybody's doing YouTube now but think about ranking your own YT video to get organic flood of new (email) subscribers on a daily basis. It will cost you nothing in the future if video ranked properly (compared to solo ads which can be very expensive)

    Good luck!

    Hey bro, good luck! $1,000,000 is not far away if you search in the right places. That is $1,400 a day for 2 years, but in reality, if you utilize your plans correctly and invest in the right niches, could easily be achieved.

    Well I'll be the rational dick to say that $1,000,000 is VERY far away.

    You can split test till your butthole is bleeding is still not be 10% of the way there.

    I know you said you've made millions, but a million dollar plan typically requires a
    more refined strategy. So if you reach $100,000 within the next 6 months, I'll be
    very impressed.

    I don't mean to sound negative, but a lot of things are "possible". Its possible that
    I can fly to mars before I die.... possible that I can be reincarnated as Hugh Hefner
    .... but is it LIKELY? You decide. :cool:

    If you're making your own product, and you've researched it and found it's profitable, $1,000,000 honestly isn't as hard as it sounds.

    Think about the all of the clickbank products the people making their journals are promoting. If they're making $100/day the product creator is making minimum, $30 off them. After all of his affiliates, his own promotion is going to make even more money.

    Another great thing about ClickBank products, is that there's very little expenses. A bit of hosting, and the rest is just ClickBank fees.
