Clickbank Pirate launched 18 hours ago, and their servers bogged down all day under the weight of so many smart affiliate marketers charging to the site to join – it even broke down a couple of times, but was brought back up by their great staff in short order…

Being a super-affiliate, it should come as no surprise to you that I spoke to the site’s owners, Cindy Battye and Soren Jordansen, a few weeks before launch to get the inside information, and with what I saw I began promoting it as soon as they’d let me, at the start of the pre-launch. In my personal and probably biased opinion, it’s that good an affiliate marketing resource, and since it all revolves around Clickbank products I knew affiliates would love it. It even uses Clickbank itself, so affiliates know there’s no worry over being paid on time – Clickbank has never missed a single affiliate commission payment in it’s 10 years online!

A lot of other big names jumped on board for the launch too, some doing a lot better than I did but most not as well, since they had other launches to promote while I focused on bringing you what I felt would do you the most good – Clickbank Pirate. And as a targeted traffic expert, I was well rewarded for my efforts, bringing in commissions well into 3 digits in the first 12 hours the site was open. And the beauty of it is that those commissions are already sitting in my Clickbank account!

And now that it IS open, I suggest you get your Clickbank Pirate membership right now, and go look at their affiliate program with an eye to choosing which affiliate resources YOU’RE going to use to promote the site. They have a lot of them there, and you’ll probably want to create more yourself if only to help differentiate yourself from other CB Pirate affiliates. Now don’t misunderstand, my results sure aren’t typical, and you may make more, less, or even not make anything at all. Only use my results to see the site CAN make money for affiliates – how much others make as Clickbank Pirate affiliates depends mostly on them, they’re experience, background, effort, focus, etc. etc. If you’ve been doing affiliate marketing for any length of time, you know results vary from person to person and even from promotion to promotion for one affiliate. Even I and my super-affiliate buddies have made a killing on some and completely flopped with others…

I’m assuming the following scenario based on my 12 years online full-time to this point: most of the big dogs will now move on to the next big joint venture, and most of the new Clickbank Pirate members will focus mostly on the great affiliate funnels they get each month, since everything but driving traffic is already done for them. If that’s the case, you should have a pretty good field for marketing the CB Pirate program itself. I know I intend to go on promoting it regularly instead of simply pocketing my launch commissions and moving on…

Why? Because I think it’s the best there is at what it does, and that my readers, mostly affiliate marketers, can do well with it. When I find the best resource in any area, it’s my self-imposed duty to get that information to as many people who will benefit from it as I can. I do the same with Hosting For Marketers because of their web hosting, autoresponder and affiliate program package, Jeff Dedrick’s Viral E-book Explosion becuase of their free brandable e-books, and Socrates Socratous’ Resell Rights Fortunes because it’s the most advanced and easiest to profit from resell rights membership site. In fact, even mentioning them here is part of the Captain’s affiliate marketing strategy, since all use my affiliate links – as they should.

All 4 get another star too, since the affiliate programs for them can all result in residual commissions, allowing a successful marketer to build his commissions from them over time – and the Clickbank Pirate affilates can do the same!

CB Pirate affiliates also have the benefit of being able to push their affiliate funnels they get each month too, of course, which can boost their earnings that much more if they get good enough at it.

And as always, if you’re going to seriously promote the site, be sure to set up your own funnel for it – a free download & squeeze page and then follow up with your message. You can see my funnel, and download my new Clickbank For Newbies here.

Go on over to the site now, and become one of the Clickbank Pirate affiliates and members – you’ll see the affiliate resources link as soon as you log into your members’ area. And if you have any questions about promoting the site, leave a comment below, ok? The Captain’s here for you… 🙂
