Here Is My December Check From ClickBank

I’ve been trying to nuke my day job by trying to find good work from home jobs. This is a real check and not some faked screen print. Obviously, I know what I am talking about when I discuss the different ways to make money online.

I mean, seriously, this is just my ClickBank earnings. I also make money from my Build A Niche Store sites through Commission Junction, money from Project Payday with the ROI Rocket network, money every month from CashCrate, money from NeverBlueAds, and finally of course money from Google Adsense.

Those are most of my methods right now but it is quite apparent that I am an up and coming money making, affiliate marketing, blogging superstar and I suggest you subscribe to my feed right now so you don’t miss a money making thing in the future! Yea! Right on!

If you haven’t figured it out already, this post is sort of tongue-in-cheek. Yes, the ClickBank check is mine, but I didn’t tell you how many months it took me to earn it! In the post title I said “here is my December check” hoping you would think that I get a check like that every month. I didn’t say I do, but it sort of sounds like I do. If you read it and don’t think about it most people might assume that a similar check comes to me every month. I might have also said something like “my latest check”.

This shows that you have to be aware of what people are selling you in their ads and blogs. Now, if I were a downright liar, I would have had no problem just coming right out and saying that I get a check like that every month. Or, as I am sure many do, I would do the usual fake screen print of my ClickBank earnings.

I have never posted my earnings on this blog for anything other than my Build A Niche sites. This blog is not like the others that give you monthly totals because I don’t think it is anyone’s business and everyone knows that the numbers are easily faked and don’t mean a thing anyway. My BANS numbers must be the truth because they are so pathetically low. (I’m not sure why I got so bored with BANS)

Unfortunately I have a job so the money I make is sporadic as I don’t have the same amount of time to devote to it every week. I hope this will change a little as I try to get more search engine traffic and put up some niche sites and Squidoo lenses.

And as for how long it took me to make that ClickBank check, let me say that it is somewhere in between one month and, well, it’s still none of your business.

    Earnings are earnings, my friend. There are scores of people who haven’t made a single cent online, so you are obviously doing something right.

    This post is a good example of how the online money making process works. Your earnings start as a trickle from different sources here and there, until you do enough volume to received checks every month.

    I’m sure you were happy to receive nearly $1k from Clickbank, no matter how long it took. I know I would be.

    Nice work! I just started 2 months ago and just broke $50. You are right, it takes time and patience, but it does eventually pay out. I haven’t tried BANS yet, but am looking into it. Not sure if I want to take on another site yet or not.

    Bruce dear friend. I know with all the effort you put in to your online business and your regular 9-5 you sure as hell feel like WOW this for all the work. But Bruce that one check alone is more then what 90% of internet marketeers make a year. So congrats buddy and can not wait to see a 10k monthly check 😉

    Congrats on the earnings. If however you ever do suffer ridicule simply make a video and login into your accounts. I did for one of my websites that did over 150K last year and people tend to STFU real fast.

    All this talk about faked screen shots is ridiculous. Get the video camera out and reveal all. I for one would never suspect you of faking anything, I come by at least once a day to read 🙂

    Mr Disguntled,
    It took more than one month and less than 25 months. Does that help?

    Not bad for CJ. Anything on CJ is a pain in the ass, because it’s soooo saturated. My best luck has been with independent affiliate programs. Just call em first and make sure their affiliate program is still alive..

    You may find CB Analytics helpful. It allows to check product gravity and other trends so it’s easier to choose products that convert steadily.

    Congrats on the check man! It might have taken awhile to get, but come on now… that is fuel for the fire and it should be motivational for you! Keep up the awesome work man and I am pulling for you. 🙂

    Wow, and modest too (haha). Good work though monetizing a blog can be quite challenging especially today with adsense not paying out quite so well at least for me.

    Why is the BANS link not working? I tried to look into it but all I get is 404 not found. Even the google search links don’t work.

    MsDiva, BANS seems to be down at the moment. I can’t get to their website from anywhere.

    I luv Bans, although I have started using phpBay, some of my largest earners are bans/wp based. All my sites are large ticket items. ie Vehicles. The sales are farther apart, but its 50-150 average each one. My very first site, looks like it is going to break the $1000 mark for Feb, since its half way there now.

    Now I know he didn’t get this in a single month but $900? Even if that took weeks of periodic work, that would be good. The reality is that most of us are n00bs when it comes to working these schemes and lose out what we put in…

    I think it just proves that if you looking to make an additional income via the internet then it pays to look at various methods. By earning small amounts from each source these can soon add up. You can then start analyzing the most profitable areas compared to the amount of time and effort spent before concentrating on the one or two oppurtunities that are working for you. By replicating these areas your income will then soon start to increase.

    Your post is very motivating.

    I appreciate the honesty. Heck many people say things like “how I made $1,000 in one day” but they don’t tell that they made that $1,000 in *just* one day (not daily), and they don’t tell that they spent $800 on promotions.
