Today’s Affiliate Silver Bullet launch sets a new benchmark for affiliate marketing resource sites – that is, sites that provide ongoing services to affiliate marketers for a monthly fee.

Until today, the best was ClickBank Pirate – they provide you with a new video squeeze page to promote each month, supply the free report your prospect downloads and deliver the autoresponder series to sell the prospect into the affiliate product you’re promoting. Everything is done for you – all you do is send traffic.

So it’s no wonder that the new benchmark is being established by Cindy & Soren, owners of CB Pirate – they’re the same service providers behind Affiliate Silver Bullet. At first blush, ASB seems to be the same, and in fact DOES provide everything that CB Pirate does. But there is ONE major difference that experienced affiliate marketing pros will notice right off…

With your Affiliate Silver Bullet membership, you can choose each month whether to let them host it for you and run the e-mail series or to download it all and put it online on your own site. This is a huge improvement, as running it on your own site means YOU own the list it generates, people are opting into YOUR autoresponders, and as a result you can follow up with them about other related products down the road.

And THAT, my friend, makes all the difference in the world to anyone trying to establish or grow their own work-at-home affiliate marketing business online – now you’re able to build opt-in lists while building your commissions, giving you potential earnings immediately and much great potential earnings as each month passes…

Get hooked up with Affiliate Silver Bullet today at http://www.affiliate-silver-bullets.com – head over there now and take a look at everything included in your new affiliate marketing package!

And if you’re not already an expert in affiliate marketing making 4-5 figures a month from it, be sure to sign up for our next round of Affiliate Marketing PowerStart coaching classes – enroll now to start the 8-week program on June 3rd!

If you’ve missed the event and are reading this later, you’ll still want to hit that page and get your copy of the recording – there hasn’t been another affiliate marketing training call like it, so you’ll want it both for your own education and for the master resell rights that purchasers get with the recording and transcript.

Have you taken your affiliate marketing out of the dark ages yet? You know, back in the day when successful affiliate marketing simply meant putting a banner ad on your site and sending out an e-mail? Wow, are those days long gone!

Let’s jump to the bleeding edge of today’s affiliate marketing – are you using VIDEO yet? Every super-affiliate is – but are you? Video is the most powerful tool in your marketing mix right now, so you’d better be…

Unless, of course, you’re willing to settle for scraps over and over again… 😉

Now if you’ve been a long-time fan you know the Captain is a firm believer in online video – from the videos tools package I launched in 2006 to the present, video has been a part of both my Internet marketing and affiliate marketing mix.

Sure, everyone’s pushing video at you lately – but how many are walking the walk? Talk’s cheap online… So let’s start by establishing my street cred in video.
We’ll ignore my making TV commercials when Teri & I owned our ad agency because there’s no online samples, and we’ll leave out my glamour videography because it’s not pertinent to affiliate marketing – even if it IS pretty… LOL

So let’s see…

I already mentioned the Internet Audio Video Pro bundle – but it’s worth checking out if you want to see video of me when I still had short ‘corporate’ hair. 😉

Then there’s my book on podcasting and video blogging – It’s You, Live! Oh yes, and the one called Creating Your Own Videos – pretty obvious what that one’s about…

And not to leave my PLR following out, there’s Converting PLR Videos – a video training series ABOUT editing PLR videos…

OK – so far, that’s all about TEACHING video marketing – but what about USING videos myself?

Well, products like that PLR videos course, my PLR Tutorial videos and the training in my PowerStart Marketing Coaching Program are all video I created, engineered and produced myself…

I know, I know – that’s teaching others how to make and edit videos, and using video for product creation – but you want to talk affiliate marketing, right?

First, think back – I used videos on my blogs to promote ClickBank Pirate here, here, here and here.

Next, look over in the sidebar to the right of this post – see the 5 videos in the Viddler widget? All videos I used to promote the Affiliate Jump launch.

Oh yeah – and I’m not above using other people’ videos in my affiliate marketing strategy either – like the one from Super-Affiliate Rosalind Gardner or the one from iFlash Video that I posted to my Internet marketing blog today…

You get the point, right? Yes, I’m a video expert, and yes, I walk the walk every day – using video to create products, to create training resources, to brand myself world-wide and to stay a super-affiliate no matter what the competition is up to. I can count on one hand the marketers who’ve done more with video than I have, out of the hundreds suddenly extolling it’s values.

Next week I’ll be teaching my PowerStart Marketing students how to create and use videos in their online marketing – the same classes you could be taking in March. Or, you could rush over and get on the pre-launch list for the new iFlash Videos deal – next week they’re going to open their site for JUST FOUR DAYS to let some smart marketers get a custom-made video commercial every month for $50 – and YOU get to tell THEM what the commercial is for!

Why just $50 I don’t know – I wouldn’t create videos for others for $500. Why should I when they make me more than that in affiliate commissions? But I do know Jason Anderson, and I can vouch for his abilities with video – they already make similar videos for ad agencies for a lot more money.

Be smart – book your custom videos each month as soon as the site opens by getting onto the advanced notice list now…

And start using videos in your affiliate marketing mix while it can still help you get to the top – instead of later when you need it to keep from being crushed!

Affiliate marketing is just starting to come into it’s own as a true, professional industry but back in the early days of the web it was different story – hundreds or thousands of affiliates were groping around looking to find what would work – and one of the true victors that emerged from that fray was Rosalind Gardner. Her Super Affiliate Handbook is probably still the best-selling guide to affiliate marketing on the market, and Ros continues to offer help and advice to all affiliates as her own business grows.

In fact, Rosalind Gardner’s Net Profits Today blog is SO helpful that it made my list of Top 20 Internet Marketing Blogs to Follow in 2010! And just today Rosalind posted her Affiliate Marketing Predictions for 2010 – here’s the video:

 

 

Be sure you watch the video right through – it runs about 7 minutes. It’s easy to see not only her enthusiasm for the industry, but that Rosalind Gardner is one lady who truly cares about her readers and video audience and is all too happy to pass along the helpful information she’s learned in her years as the Super-Affiliate Queen. And some of the facts she shares here from Forrester Research are astounding – astoundingly great for affiliate marketers, that is!

Do yourself a favor to help your affiliate marketing business grow in 2010 – follow these simple steps right now:

  1. Watch the Rosalind Gardner video above;
  2. Follow Rosalind Gardner on Twitter;
  3. Bookmark the Net Profits Today Blog; and
  4. Subscribe to Ros’ e-zine to get regular helpful affiliate marketing tips!

Disclaimer: Sorry, but there are NO affiliate links or sales links in this post. I haven’t lost my edge, so don’t worry – I’m just that big a fan of Ros’ and think her information can really be helpful to EVERYONE that’s in any way involved in affiliate marketing. I PROMISE I’ll have my usual glut of money-making affiliate and sales links in future posts, so don’t abandon the ol’ Captain now, ok? 😉

There are a number of ways to make money with affiliate marketing. Some use articles, some do videos or podcasts, blogs are always a great idea, and your opt-in mailing list should always be your biggest source of affiliate marketing commissions.

But just WHAT you’re promoting makes a big difference too – for example, a one-off sale is usually much easier to make than selling someone into a membership, while a membership sale can mean good repeat (residual) commissions. In most cases the higher the price tag the higher the commission payable, but most affiliates find the difficulty goes up in proportion to the item’s price.

Once in a long while though, a different type of affiliate offer surfaces, as evidenced by Russell Brunson’s 12 Month Internet Millionaire 2.0 This is one you want to jump on right now, because the opportunity only lasts ONE WEEK.

From now until November 11, 2009, Russell is sharing his seminar from StomperNet that details how he went from 6-figures a year to 8 figures a year – heady stuff, and definitely a great watch for every Internet and affiliate marketer! And he’s letting you watch the video for free!

More importantly to affiliates, though, is the affiliate offer that goes with it. As soon as you sign up to watch the video you’ll be given an affiliate link of your own, and Russell is paying out $1.00 for each person you refer that watches the free video.

Did you catch that?

The $1 per person is paid to you for those you refer to the free video – not for anyone buying anything! So you’re making money without any sales taking place! Why would he do something like this – pay YOU for sending viewers who may not buy anything?

Next Wednesday, Nov 11th, Russell is launching version 2.0 of Russell Brunson’s 12 Month Internet Millionaire, and he’s counting on converting enough of the free leads to make back his money – and pay our commissions on those sales as well!

So not only do you make money if they eventually buy, but you’re ALSO making money online just by sending people to that free video – a free video that will teach viewers a LOT about how to structure their business to make a lot more money over the next year or two.

And that, fellow affiliates, is the easiest way to make money as an affiliate – by sending people to a free resource that will truly help them. And in this case it’s even easier, since you’re making money just for them watching the video – whether they buy later or not!

But again, this whole Pre-Launch only lasts 7 days, so get your affiliate link NOW and get it out there today! No matter how easy a promotion might be, you’ll never make any money online if you don’t take action! After all, my affiliate link to this promo is throughout this blog post, so I’m just suggesting you do as I do if you want to make more as an affiliate marketer!

Beat Other Affiliate Jump Members With Advanced CPA Pages Tactic!

©2009 Doug Champigny. All Rights Reserved.

OK – If you’re a regular reader of this blog, my Internet Training Blog or our e-zines, chances are you’ve already joined the Affiliate Jump CPA Network. By now you should have watched Friday’s video on Creating Affiliate Jump CPA pages, so you know they can be set up in mere seconds, right?

Today I’m going to show you a big-dog trick to beat the other Affiliate Jump memebers, and most other affiliates making money online with CPA ads, by making your CPA pages more attractive to the search engines – and we all know how just a bit of SEO can raise your standings in the Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs) and what a difference that can make to your targeted traffic flow from the engines!

Affiliate Jump CPA Pages: The SEO Problems

On pretty much any web page that’s auto-generated and hosted for you on the new wave of Web 2.0 affiliate marketing membership services (Affiliate Jump, ClickBank Pirate, etc.), the page is ready for you to promote in seconds – but you don’t have access to the html coding for the page to do your SEO on.

Since you can’t build custom meta tags, add in custom Alt text on photos, use title tags in text links, or even do much with the anchor text on links, the SEO value of the page is the same as anyone else’s – and even lower if you’re not one of the first 5 or 10 copies of that page the search engines find. This is the case for the sample page I showed you in that first video, the Work From Home Opportunities page I built in seconds while making that video.

Now, don’t misunderstand, I still highly recommend the system, and not just because it’s already making me money. These days search engine traffic is taking it’s rightfull place in professional affiliate marketing results: just one more piece of the solution. For all but true newbies, it’s no longer the ‘Holy Grail’ of targeted traffic, however. Why just in the Total Traffic Tips webinar I did with Willie Crawford we discussed 15 different ways to drive targeted traffic using Web 2.0 sites.

So giving up the SEO benefits in exchange for Affiliate Jump’s instant CPA approvals, auto-generated ads, auto-generated CPA offer pages et al is still a great trade-off. Even if you could get accepted into tradional CPA networks, had the copywriting and design skills to put together pages they’d approve of and all the rest, this system does in minutes what it took days or weeks to accomplish on your own – just waiting for approval to start usually took days!

Affiliate Jump CPA Pages: The SEO Solutions

But now what if there was still a way to affect the SEO of your pages – minor tweaks in the areas you DO have access to? After all, it wouldn’t take much to step ahead of the pack if all the rest are the same, right? Well I have a treat for you today – a big-dog method of differentiating your pages, customizing CPA pages for better rankings in the SERPs…

Video: Advanced Customization of Affiliate Jump CPA Pages:

Pretty amazing, eh? How simple it is to add all that search engine spider bait to the page, work in a bit of pre-sell for the visitors to the page, make the offer a natural followup to a content page – and still all done in less than 5 minutes!

Here’s the new Work-at-Home Opportunities Page I created in this video – see the difference? Not tough to see why that bit of effort can have powerful SEO benefits, is it? And that bit of pre-sell leads the prospect to the ads after giving them some solid information first. If you’ve been affiliate marketing for long, you know that effective pre-sell multiplies conversion rates – and this should be no exception.

If you’re already an Affiliate Jump member, take a look in your account and decide what you want to use as your CPA offers, then before you begin, choose or write the copy you want to put above the CPA ads. DON’T make it a pitch – make it good, solid, highly-targeted & helpful information relevant to the prospects’ needs if they’re pursuing information about the CPA ads’ field of coverage. And make sure it’s unique, not unaltered PLR you got somewhere. We’re talking potential long-term SEO benefits here, so put the time in to do it right!

And if you’re not already an Affiliate Jump member, now you’re ready to join armed with knowledge to make the membership that much more advantageous to your affiliate marketing efforts. Don’t let Lady Opportunity dance merrily past you – get your Affiliate Jump membership right now and start applying your newfound big-dog tricks today!

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! 🙂

Clickbank Pirate has just launched, making it simpler to start earning money with Clickbank than just about any other affiliate marketing opportunity online. Since the program is also perfect for newbies, it’s generated a lof of new interest in the Clickbank Marketplace amongst the affiliate marketing community.

In the e-mail I receive from my e-zine subscribers and Twitter followers, Clickbank seldom came up until the pre-launch started for Clickbank Pirate, which opened to the public today. Now, after my blog posts about Clickbank Pirate here, here and here, my blog readers have joined in asking about Clickbank…

So, to help them, you and the rest of my readers, I’ve released Clickbank For Newbies, a complete starter guide to using Clickbank either as an affiliate or as a merchant. And to make sure it’s available to everyone who could use it, I’m letting everyone download this guide to Clickbank for free – for the moment. Once I have some testimonials for the e-book & feel the early action-takers like yourself have grabbed their copy, it’ll become a paid product – available to download only for a fee.

Make sure you download Clickbank For Newbies right now – click through right now to see if it’s still available for free! If it isn’t, it will still be available at a fair price on our Training For Newbies site, ok? But hopefully you’re reading this in time to download it for free!

Download and read the e-book, then let me know if you have any questions, ok? While I may not be able to answer every question individually, I WILL provide the answers on my Clickbank Blog so that others with the same question can see the answers too, ok?

I do have one favor to ask of you today, though – since I’m letting you have this powerful guide, Clickbank For Newbies, for free, would you mind tweeting this post so your own Twitter followers have a chance at it too? Thanks so much – just click here to tweet this post! 🙂

ClickBank Pirate Affiliate Marketing Blogs Announced
©2009 Doug Champigny. All rights reserved.

It was announced today that the Clickbank Pirate memberships will include 1-touch affiliate marketing blogs as a standard member’s feature when Clickbank Pirate launches Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 11am Eastern. In this video, Doug Champigny, AKA Captain Affiliate, gives a quick sneak peek video tour of the new affiliate marketing blogs from Clickbank Pirate:


(View The Clickbank Pirate Affiliate Marketing Blogs Video at full size.)

Clickbank Pirate is so impressive, as soon as I was granted early access to the members’ area I agreed to participate in the launch JV – and since this is an affiliate marketing training blog, you already know every link to their site is an affiliate link (After all, if I wasn’t affiliate marketing non-stop, what would qualify me to be your affiliate marketing mentor? 😉 ). But that gives you an idea of how strong the backend is on this puppy – I’ve yet to see an affiliate marketing site that I think measures up to Clickbank Pirate in terms of making it push-button simple for affiliates to handle all of the technical aspects of an affiliate sales funnel – for all intents and purposes, all that’s left for a Clickbank Pirate member to do is generate targeted traffic into their funnel…

Blogging For Affiliates: Post, Ping Tweet – Rinse & Repeat!

And now, with the announcement of these push-button affiliate marketing blogs, even the task of driving targeted traffic became somewhat easier – post to your blog including a link to your squeeze page, ping it and start tweeting the link on Twitter. Do another post, ping it, tweet it on Twitter. Post, ping, tweet – rinse & repeat! Clickbank Pirate sure makes affiliate marketing easier, doesn’t it?

Plus, your Clickbank Pirate affiliate marketing blog already has your affiliate ads embedded on each page, as you saw in the video above. Even if that’s all that was involved in Clickbank Pirate it would still be worth what little they’re asking for membership when the doors open August 4th – but that’s just one very small part of it! I’d be disappointed if I thought anyone reading this, or hearing of Clcikbank Pirate elsewhere, didn’t join upon launch if they have any intention of making money online or starting a work-at-home business full or part time.

Think about it… If one is new to affiliate marketing, this saves thm having to learn how to set up squeeze pages, set up autoresponders, write the follow-up e-courses, build their pre-sell pages and now even having to set up & optimize their own blogs! It takes months, sometimes years for a newbie to learn how to do all that, time that they aren’t earning what they could be and should be. Clickbank Pirate lets them have all that within 48 hours of becoming a member!

But there’s another reason I’m so fired up about Clickbank Pirate, besides making it easier for you, my affiliate marketing students, to start making money online and make money so much faster… For super-affiliates like the Captain and other seasoned marketers who already know how to do all that, this system lets us skip those steps, saving us both time and either effort or outsourcing costs and letting us focus on the part of the biz we love best – MAKING MONEY! 🙂

You see, for a real Type-A personality marketer, it’s the marketing we love – and the perks it brings when you’re so good at it. Sure, we know the technical junk is part of that success, so we do it – it’s a big part of what keeps us ahead of the rest of the pack. And don’t ever doubt it – if you’re not the lead dog, the view never changes! But this way we can stick to promoting our new Clickbank Pirate affiliate marketing funnels – blogging, tweeting, e-mailing, creating and distributing articles, videos, podcasts, press releases – all the true online marketing tactics and techniques.

And saving time by skipping the tech headaches helps us refine our skills too, since we’re spending a greater amount of time actually marketing. Plus our strategizing will improve, since our mindset stays locked on the marketing. If you’ve been affiliate marketing for any length of timed building your own sales funnels, you know that doing design, coding, FTPing, installing blogs etc requires an entirely different mindset – a headset of slower action, more attention to tedious details, greater frustrations – all of which means it takes longer to get back into your success groove when you get to return to your marketing activities.

How often has a great promotional strategy hit while you were marketing, only to be forgotten while you set up the next piece of virtual real estate? How often have you agonized over whether the article you just wrote should be submitted, used on your blog or put into your autoresponder followup? Or had a great idea for an e-mail, only to realize you already covered that topic in your e-course?

Well no more – now that the e-course, squeeze page and salespage are already completed for you, EVERY idea you come up with can be acted on immediately, put to proper use in your marketing effort! If you’re still not completely frothing ast the mouth to get in there, you need to stop and think… How much time have you spent writing your followup campaigns? How frustrated have you been trying to perfect your squeeze pages and get the autoresponder & followup pages in place? How much time have you lost worrying your salespage or pre-sell page into a suitable state – and what was the conversion rate on it when you were done??? And now for the biggie – if that time had been spent simply driving targeted traffic to professionally built squeeze pages and pre-sell pages, how much more would you have earned in the past year?

OK – so we both know this service is easily worth a few hundred a month minimum. But fortunately for us both, it’s not going to be anywhere near that high – in fact just a few affiliate sales through the Clickbank Pirate system each month keeps us in the black, and everything beyond that is profit, baby!

I could still go on and on – but before the Captain starts gushing like a virgin first mate, head on over to the Clickbank Pirate site and set sail on your own success voyage – just remember to bookmark this site and our sister site, Simple-Clickbank-Profits.com, for a stream of ongoing help in refining your affiliate marketing skills and keeping on the bleeding edge of affiliate marketing in general. Go on now – there’s nothing the captain would like better than seeing you pull into port a year from now riding your own success, mooring alongside us on our infrequent dockings at the port of the offline world!

ClickBank Pirate is set to launch on Tuesday, making affiliate marketing through the ClickBank digital downloads marketplace mush easier for newer affiliate marketers and much faster for experienced marketers and super-affiliates. This has resulted in my setting up a sister blog to Captain-Affiliate.com called Simple ClickBank Profits to provide additional related affiliate marketing training and resources to members of ClickBank Pirate.


ClickBank Pirate will be an affiliate marketing no-brainer must-have in every affiliate marketer’s online arsenal of professional tools and resources. Successful affiliate marketing now requires a complete sales funnel for each main product the marketer is promoting, including those from ClickBank. ClickBank Pirate will design, create and host these funnels for their members, covering some of the most popular ClickBank products. This removes all the technical skill requirements from the members’ activities, leaving them free to focus on the most important, and most enjoyable, part of our industry – the actual marketing!

While I have been mentoring you on affiliate marketing here on the Captain Affiliate blog and will continue to do so, ClickBank is big enough and unique enough to warrant it’s own training blog, so that’s why I set up the Simple ClickBank Profits Affiliate Marketing Training blog. Don’t misunderstand the title of the blog – using the information presented there will make affiliate mmarketing the ClickBank products simple when used with the ClickBank Pirate system, but there will still be a lot of effort required on your part. You still need to put in just as much effort, but the processess involved will be much simpler.

This is great news for you – you’ve never shied away from putting in the effort, so now you have the opportunity to get better results faster from your same affiliate marketing time and effort. Just as you surpass the results of those who don’t put in as much effort as you currently, ClickBank Pirate can increase that gulf exponentially!

So until launch on Tuesday, you have three simple steps to follow now:

  1. Sign up for Free to the ClickBank Pirate Notification List
  2. Read The Posts on the Simple ClickBank Profits Blog & Bookmark the Blog or Grab the RSS Feed
  3. Be Sure You Have An Affiliate Account At ClickBank and that All Your Information there is Current.

See? I told you each step will be simple! ClickBank Pirate and ClickBank Affiliate Marketing Training from Captain Affiliate – What a Team! 🙂
