    I've never gotten a sale on ClickBank (I signed up last week). I did the usual stuff, made a quick blog, and finally added a article provided by the product seller and edited a bit. I did this because I read a quick guide that I found on Google... so most likely everyone is doing it. Then it told me to submit a few articles on EzineArticles, and I was too lazy and own re wrote two (again, these articles were provided by the product seller). One got me suspended, but another is still live.

    I only made $17.60, but I'm just glad that I actually made a sale. I didn't think I would ever make a sale, or at least not for a very long time, with only 13 visitors haha. Thanks BHW, and I needed this sale to tell me not to give up after only an hour of work. :p

    Oh and by the way, does ClickBank pay with PayPal or is it still checks only?

    well done, keep up the good work :)

    clickbank pays with check, and they also do direct deposit after u have met certain requirements (i think its after you have had 3 checks paid to you)

    Clickbank is check mainly, they do have some other payment methods, but not Paypal, this is something your going to have to get used to, yeah it would be nice if everyone used Paypal, but annoyingly they don't and that is just something we have to live with.

    Great job on your first sale, feels great doesn't it! Now just take whatever you did before, scale it up, then when you've made 10 sales, you've got some capital to start out sourcing this work so you can work on other things. :)

    Thanks for the great tips everyone!

    This is an excellent way for me to make money right now, I'm 14 and there aren't a lot of jobs around my house hiring 14 year olds unfortunately.

    Thanks.

    Other than Adscend Media, this is the only way I've made money off of internet marketing.

    Create another blog about the same product, or another product?

    Hi guys, do you think I should increase the views of one of my Ezine Articles with DonkeyMails.com (or another PPC advertising program)?

    Gratz dude - maybe you should change that to "fortunately there aren't a lot of jobs around my house hiring 14 year olds".

    Btw, remember that CB has this stupid "Customer Distribution Requirement" which basically means that you'll need at least 5 sales in order to be paid by CB the first time.

    A friend told me its quite hard to get paid by CB. They request you to make several sales in different countries by using different payment methods....

    Diversify.

    Nothing worse than seeing progress than having your entire income swallowed by a competitor who moves in and does it better than you.

    New domain, new niche, new sales page.

    Congrats on the sale. Try some simple linking to web 2.0 structures to increase the SEO position of your sales page to help boost traffic. It's looking like a good pitch so if you wish to concentrate on it, simple SEO (for now) is the way forward, but i should assume you're doing this!

    Good luck!
