What is Clickbank Marketplace?

Clickbank Marketplace is a website where you can find products in digital formats, such as ebooks, courses, software and the likes, to advertise on your website.

There are thousands, if not hundreds of products there. Some are good, some are bad, and some are just okay. Some products you find can be REALLY bad, though. There’s a mixed bunch to choose from.

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about Clickbank Marketplace.


Who is Clickbank for?

If you have a website, a blog, an email list, or online business of many other types you can use Clickbank Marketplace to find things to sell for a commission.

This is called the affiliate marketing model. Another way to describe the affiliate marketing model is to say “blogging for cash” or “making recommendations based on your experiences with a product” in reviews on a website.


What is Clickbank?Why Do Some Say Clickbank is a Scam?

It’s the really bad products there at Clickbank that give them that idea. You see, this requires a bit of an analogy to explain it.


My Analogy – Is a Supermarket a Scam?

When you go to a supermarket there are thousands of items for sale, right? Not all of those items are brilliant (for you). Some of them are just okay and some of them are awesome (in your opinion)

I might think that a can of baked beans by a brand name such as Heinz is the best product (in the baked beans niche). But you might hate Heinz baked beans.

If you were to turn to someone and say that the supermarket was a scam because you didn’t like a particular product they have on their shelves, that person would look at you as if you’d lost your mind, am I right?

Heinz baked beans might be right up your alley but may be they're hated by someone else. That doesn’t mean the supermarket is a scam. It means the supermarket simply tries to cater to everyone’s taste. And we all know people have different likes and dislikes.

Clickbank is Not a Scam

So, with this in mind, I can confidently say that Clickbank is not a scam and in fact is a good place to get started if you’re new to making money online with affiliate marketing, or, blogging for cash, as I like to call it.


Is Clickbank Safe to Use?

Absoulutely. Clickbank is like a supermarket, or a warehouse full of products (non-physical products) that are for the most part, safe to use. For sure, it has its fair share of low-quality stuff. It's up to you, the affiliate marketer, to decide what's good and what's not good.


Be Cautious When Writing a Clickbank Product Review

All you have to do is make sure that what you're promoting on your site is a good quality product when you choose to do a Clickbank product review. If you choose something that's not good, you will lose credibility.

There are heaps of awesome training videos available at a cool place where you can learn how to make money online with not only Clickbank Marketplace but any other affiliate networks/programs you can find. They also will teach you SEO, keyword research and how to build a website with WordPress. Read my review of Wealthy Affiliate to see what you can learn.


Clickbank is Actually a Great Place for Beginners

Clickbank Marketplace is free to join for anyone. It’s easy to set up an account (it takes 2 minutes) and you will then be able to pick and choose from digital products that you want to promote on your website or in your email marketing campaigns.

That being said, look out for the low-quality stuff. You shouldn’t just grab at something because the commission looks good. You should also not judge a book by its cover, so to speak.

Take your time in choosing products to promote from Clickbank (or any other affiliate programs) before deciding. Do your proper research (due diligence) and promote only the things you really recommend to your readers.


Is Clickbank a Scam? No, That’s Silly. It’s Perfectly Legit

I like Heinz baked beans the most. What kind of baked beans do you like best? Are Heinz baked beans your favorite brand of beans? Do you think Clickbank is a scam? Let me know in the comments below.

I’m Jimbo, I like baked beans. You can read more about me and this site here. Take care.


Is Instamate 2 a Scam?

Is Instamate 2 a Scam? I Think Not – Watch This!

“But is Instamate 2 a scam?” my friend asked me on Skype when I showed him inside the dashboard of my shiny new toy. I bought Instamate 2 to find out for myself what I could do with it since I’m not very adept with Instagram. So far, I haven’t got a hint of being ripped off.

In actual fact, I think I got an incredible deal since I got it during the launch period in the middle of March 2017. It wasn’t that much cheaper than it is at the regular price, but the regular price is also an awesome deal. I’m happy with it after a couple of weeks trying it out.

I’m still not adept at Instagram but I am slowly learning.


Want a Peek Inside Inside Instamate 2's Interface?

I thought you might. There's a video up at the top of this page so you can have a goosy gander. Enjoy!


I can understand people being dubious with new shiny objects when they’re first released to the general public. I’m that way myself when it comes to just about everything. Once upon a time, I thought PayPal was a scam, lol.

Apologies, I digress from time to time. Let’s get back on track…


Is Instamate 2 a Scam? Nooo! It's a Great Little Tool

For only $46 I got a tool that can schedule automated posts for my Instagram accounts. It's a big time saver for me and saves me from having to log in to my mobile device. I don't have to switch accounts by logging out of instagram on my phone or tablet, either. I can do it all within Instamate's dashboard in a jiffy.

I won't tell you all about the tools right here because I already did that in my Instamate 2 review.


What is Instamate 2?

Well, you can only use Instagram on a mobile device, right? That was until Instamate came along. With Instamate you can use your laptop or desktop computer to do things with Instagram.

Marketers and bloggers and all kinds of people who make money online absolutely love and swear by Instagram for marketing, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon while it’s still hot. Since the price was so reasonable and still is, I couldn't help myself. Automated posting on 5 Instagram accounts?

Cheers, I'll have some of that!

Instamate 2 is a bit like Mass Planner 2 in that sense. Mass Planner, however, can automate a lot more than just Instagram. It will handle Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Linkedin as well as Instagram. However, Instamate 2 focuses only on Instagram and has a few cool features that Mass Planner doesn't have as standard.

So, now I use both Mass Planner and Instamate together. I wouldn't be able to choose between them because they're both really good at what they do.


Is Instamate 2 any good?

Yes, it seems really good so far. It’s helped me get a lot more traffic to my websites by using it for a few minutes a day to schedule my posting to 5 Instagram accounts. Nothing major yet, because as I mentioned, I’m still learning all about Instagram and Instamate. But the results so far are very promising.



Would I Buy Instamate 2 Again Knowing What I Know Now?

Absolutely, I would. I like it a lot, despite not knowing much about Instagram marketing. All those hashtags, pictures, comments, likes and emoticons confuse the heck out of me. But as with all things, I will learn.


So, is Instamate 2 a Scam?

Noooooo. lol. It's a cool piece of kit that has a new place in my arsenal for marketing online.

Read my full review of Instamate 2 here. On that page you will also see a lot of screenshots of the features and tools inside the dashboard.

What do you think of Instamate and Instagram as marketing tools? Do you like them?

Is 100K Factory Revolution a Scam?

An Honest Review – Is 100K Factory Revolution a Scam?

Is 100K Factory Revolution a scam or is it legit? To be perfectly honest, I’d never heard of it until I was asked about it. However, that prompted me into doing some research into the previous 2 versions. I learned that this is a software and training which is in its third edition now. Versions 1 and 2 were smash-hits going by all the reports I’ve read. And Version 3 looks like it’s going to be an even bigger hit.
