How much money can you earn promoting Clickbank products?

To help answer this question, I’m going to go over a couple of different scenarios;

- Sally, a stay-at-home mom that can work on her Internet business on only a part-time basis, and
- Bob, a budding full-time Internet marketer

*Important:* Before I continue, I need to let you know that the scenarios given below are not typical. Most people won’t do the necessary product research and also put in the required amount of effort required to make a successful affiliate marketing business work.

**Sally**

Let’s start with Sally. Sally can devote about 10 hours per week to her Internet business. She has decided to promote The Fat Loss Factor as an affiliate and is able to sign up 20 people every month.

Here’s what Sally’s income will look like after one year:

20 sales per month x 12 months = 240 sales

240 sales x $43.56 = $10,454.40

That means Sally has earned a total of $10,454.40 over one year on the initial sale of The Fat Loss Factor. This is not a bad little part-time income but when you factor in the recurring billing, you will see how it will make a huge difference to your business…

So lets say that of those 240 people that purchased The Fat Loss Factor, each month 5 of the 20 new buyers decide to join the monthly subscription.

That will mean that, by the end of the first year, Sally will have also earned the following recurring billing income:

5 x 11 months = 55 recurring billing payments

(for those that joined in the first month and continued to pay all year)

5 x 10 months = 50 recurring billing payments

(for those that joined in the second month and continued to pay all year)

5 x 9 months = 45 recurring billing payments

(for those that joined in the third month and continued to pay all year)

5 x 8 months = 40 recurring billing payments

(I think you get the idea now…)

5 x 7 months = 35 recurring billing payments

5 x 6 months = 30 recurring billing payments

5 x 5 months = 25 recurring billing payments

5 x 4 months = 20 recurring billing payments

5 x 3 months = 15 recurring billing payments

5 x 2 months = 10 recurring billing payments

5 x 1 months = 5 recurring billing payments

Total recurring billing payments for the year = 55 + 50 + 45 + 40 + 35 + 30 + 25 + 20 +15 + 10 + 5 = 330 recurring billing payments

Total recurring billing income for the year = 330 payments x $28.91 = $9,540.30

That means that Sally almost doubled her income just because she chose to promote a recurring billing product!

And even better than that, after one year Sally has 60 people (the 5 people that signed up to the recurring billing product every month over the past year) that are on a subscription that she is receiving income for… on total autopilot! That means Sally is receiving $1,734.60 (60 x $28.91) in commissions every single month, even if she decides to not get out of bed in the morning!

**Bob**

Okay, let’s see what Bob is doing…

Bob took the plunge and is working his Internet marketing business full-time now. He can devote about 40 hours per week to his Internet business. Bob also likes The Fat Loss Factor and has decided to promote it as an affiliate. Bob is able to sign up 80 people every month.

Here’s what Bob’s income will look like after one year:

80 sales per month x 12 months = 960 sales

960 sales x $43.56 = $41,817.60

That means Bob has earned a total of $41,817.60 over one year on the initial sale of The Fat Loss Factor. That’s not too bad. Well done, Bob!

But wait, there’s more 😉

Lets say that of those 960 people that purchased The Fat Loss Factor, each month 20 of the 80 new buyers decide to join the monthly subscription.

That will mean that, by the end of the first year, Bob will have also earned the following recurring billing income:

20 x 11 months = 220 recurring billing payments

(for those that joined in the first month and continued to pay all year)

20 x 10 months = 200 recurring billing payments

(for those that joined in the second month and continued to pay all year)

20 x 9 months = 180 recurring billing payments

(for those that joined in the third month and continued to pay all year)

20 x 8 months = 160 recurring billing payments

(I think you get the idea now…)

20 x 7 months = 140 recurring billing payments

20 x 6 months = 120 recurring billing payments

20 x 5 months = 100 recurring billing payments

20 x 4 months = 80 recurring billing payments

20 x 3 months = 60 recurring billing payments

20 x 2 months = 40 recurring billing payments

20 x 1 months = 20 recurring billing payments

Total recurring billing payments for the year = 220 + 200 + 180 + 160 + 140 + 120 + 100 + 80 +60 + 40 + 20 = 1320 recurring billing payments

Total recurring billing income for the year = 1320 payments x $28.91 = $38,161.20

That brings Bob’s total income for the year to be $41,817.60 + $38,161.20 = $79,978.80

And here’s what excites Bob…

He has now 240 people (the 29 people that signed up to the recurring billing product every month over the past year) that are on a subscription that he is receiving income for. That means Bob is receiving $6,938.40 (240 x $28.91) in commissions every single month, without him needing to do a single thing!

This is the reason that I first got into Internet marketing… being able to earn a passive full-time income. Let me tell you, there’s nothing better than having a great full-time income AND the time to enjoy it!

Now, I must make an important disclaimer here; these recurring billing figures are in no way guaranteed. Some affiliates will earn more money in recurring billing signups than other affiliates. The degree of your success will depend, in a large measure, on the relationship you’ve developed with your buyers.
