For two years now I’ve been experimenting with how to make a little passive income with Clickbank. My goals were to make about $150-$200 per month in my spare time. It would provide a little money to put away for my son’s college fund and for my Starbucks habit. So off I started with my first site.
My 1st Clickbank Site
I started out with one site built around a product that I really liked called the The 5 Minute Learning Machine. I actually bought the ebook product off of Clickbank for $24 and read it.
But since I’m not the best writer I had a friend write a 1 page (400 word) review on it. She ranked it for readability, what type of bonuses it had and most of all would it be helpful for the reader. By really helping the reader make a buy or pass decision was important.
I next chose a domain name. The one thing I learned was to choose a domain that has the name of the product followed by the word review. This was chosen because this is what people type in to google when they see something they want but they’re are not sure if it’s any good. So they type into Google name of the product followed by the word “review”.
So if you can reserve this name you get a leg up on the competition.
I then took a snapshot of the table of contents of the product manual. This allowed people to take a look at what they would be getting when they buy. I also used a star rating system and included a product snapshot of book cover. Also I included screen snapshots of the bonus products included in the package.
I then put the site up using WordPress and I put in the review as the first page with a few other articles on learning build with some of the other pages. Once everything was up and running I turned on the site. After 6 months this is what the site was earning.
As you can imagined I was quite impressed with this. But there was room for improvement which I’m going to share with you in my next post.
Many of my friends have lost their jobs during the downturn in the economy.
For those who have been looking for a new job it’s been almost impossible to find work with so many people vying for the same job. I posted a part time job for my business and I received 240 applicants!
My friends have shared some gut wrenching stories. One close friend had lost his job, and after two years of unemployment benefits exhausted, he lost his marriage and just recently lost his home. To make matters all the worst, his mother is suffering from early alzheimer’s. I feel for him. I always tell him that if he ever wants to talk to please call me anytime. This blog is dedicated to him.
Being Out of Work Is A Good Opportunity To Explore New Income Sources
Losing your job and being unemployed can be a overwhelmingly negative experience. At times there is a tendency to let these feelings fuel negative thinking. Instead this is an opportunity to explore how to build a different life for you and your family.
So while you are watching daytime TV waiting for the the next interview why not create a source of income from something you love. After all, with just a computer you’re using now and little time and determination you can get there.

Over the next several months I will be showing you exactly how to build a passive income from your computer. I won’t charge you how to do it. All that I ask is you follow the steps in my blog to make it happen for your self.
What my wish and hope is you will be so successful you will never have to go back to work again unless you want to.
So over this year I will be writing and showing you how to build a passive income on the cheap while you sit at home and think about your future. In fact, my goal is to enable several of my friends to build businesses that make them $2k-$3k per month. Now you won’t get rich from this but you could if you continue to build from this point on.
