Clickbank Pirate just launched a little over 24 hours ago – but response has been so phenomenal they realize how badly they underpriced it – and are planning to fix that PRONTO! Right now you can join Clickbank Pirate and lock in at their launch rates: $47 for the first month and then $27 a month thereafter. But that changes tomorrow morning, August 6th at 6am Eastern. Here’s the note they just posted in our JV area:

Clickbank Pirate ends launch discount, plans 40% price increase tomorrow

Both the inital payment and the monthly rates are going up by almost 40%, to $67 initially and $37 a month thereafter.

I’m of two minds about this – first, I like my readers being able to get into these sites and get the resources for the lowest price possible, but second I want to see the resource owners making enough that it’s worth their while to keep the site updated with fresh content regularly. And I have to admit, this resource is powerful enough, to me, to be worth the membership if I had to pay $97 or even $197 a month for it – after all, it doesn’t take many Clickbank affiliate sales to cover that off each month, and that doesn’t even include what I’ll make on the CB Pirate affiliate program itself!

Think I’m kidding? Look at the math…

Pick a product from those Clickbank Pirate affiliate sales funnels they provide you with that sells for $37 a month or more and pays 50% commissions or better, earning you at least $18.50 a sale. If your combined affiliate marketing efforts just get you an average of 1 sale per day, that’s 30 sales in that month, or $555. Your first YEAR’S payments are $67 for the first month, and 11 payments of $37 – a total of $474. So as long as in ANY ONE MONTH during that first year just ONE of their funnels brings you a sale a day, that one product, in one month, has covered your annual CB Pirate investment!

And that’s with just one of the funnels – they start you off with 6 and add from there. And those calculations are based on joining after the price hike tomorrow – if you get in at the launch rate, it takes even less to break even! Now obviously I can’t say you will make that, or anything – only YOU know what you’re capable of right now, how much effort you intend to put in and how much you intend to learn about professional affiliate marketing over the next year.
My point here is that as little as 3 sales of any one product per month can keep you in the black on this one!

For affiliates, of course, this can also be good news – as the price rises, so do your Clickbank Pirate affiliate commissions paid out to you through Clickbank itself. Get regular sales going every month their and you’ve got an affiliate commissions payment coming every two weeks, paid through the most trusted name in affiliate marketing: Clickbank!

The good news for you is that every Clickbank Pirate member is automatically enrolled in their affiliate program, and full resources are provided to help you make money on that end of this site as well – after all, the more you make referring new members the more they make too, so it’s in their best interest to help you sell more memberships every month.

So, lets cut to the chase here… Do I honestly think the Clickbank Pirate site is worth joining and worth promoting as an affiliate? No matter what I say people burned by others won’t accept it, so lit’s pretend you’re from Missouri and show you… Here’s how much time and effort I feel it’s worth ME putting into promoting Clickbank Pirate as an affiliate:

1) The links in this post are, of course, affiliate links.

2) Other blog posts I’ve done promoting Clickbank Pirate:

4 other blog posts and 3 videos on thisaffiliate marketing blog.
3 blog posts on my Internet marketing blog.
2 blog posts on my Clickbank Marketing blog.
2 blog posts on my Marketing BlogZine.
1 blog post on my Advanced Twitter Marketing blog.

3) Promotional videos created and uploaded to Simple-Clickbank-Profits.com, YouTube, Bebo and Motion Box.

4) New report entitled ‘Clickbank For Newbies‘ published and being given away for free; both the squeeze page followup pages and the report itself have ads for ClickBank Pirate prominently included.

5) Various tweets about Clickbank Pirate on both my @SuperAffil and @CaptnAffiliate accounts.

You see, unlike a lot of the ‘experts’ today, I walk the walk before I talk the talk. So far I’ve invested the time to do 13 blog posts, create 3 videos and upload them to a total of 5 different sites, published a new report and built the squeeze and follow-up pages, tweeted the links and e-mailed our opt-in lists a few times. And the site is only 32 hours old so far… longer-term strategies like article marketing will be brought into play next.

Mind you, this also shows why I say the amount of effort you put in plays a huge role in what you make from affiliate marketing – if you do any less than what I’ve shown there, don’t expect to get anywhere near the same results I do – and keep in mind that I’ve been in marketing & advertising for about 30 years now, offline and now online for the past 12 years.

But I’m not asking for your faith based on my extensive credentials, but based on actually seeing me DO exactly what I always suggest to you. Anytime you wonder whether an affiliate marketer is giving you the straight goods or just looking to make a buck off you, look around to see if THEY are doing what they suggest YOU do. The Captain may not reveal EVERY trick or tactic he uses outside of his high-end mentoring, but for every suggestion I DO make on how to promote affiliate opportunities it’s always easy for find examples of me doing them too!

So when I say you should be promoting Clickbank Pirate and the affiliate funnels you get with your membership, know that I’m right there in the trenches with you, both guiding your efforts and putting in the grunt time myself! 🙂
