CB Passive Income 4.0 – Clone the Business Model by Patric Chan – Is it a Scam or Wham Bam Thank You M’am?

What is CB Passive Income 4.0?

CB Passive Income 4.0 doesn’t have a focus on teaching you business methods, but rather a learn by experience introduction to email marketing.

If you are new to email marketing, you can visit my article Email Marketing Basics for an overview.

CB Passive Income 4.0 is a ClickBank certified product providing you with a clone of an email marketing business developed by Patric Chan.Patric chan cb passive income conference

Patric Chan is the best-selling author of WakeUp Millionaire, he’s spoken to audiences in 12 countries as an authoritative figure in the world of internet marketing and has authored several books.

The ready-made business model is a popular option for those wanting a fast-track way to making money online, rather than spending copious amounts of time studying.

The model sends the subscribers to a supposedly ‘secret webpage’ (the hook) that offers them clickbank products. The clickbank products are where you make the money, from a sale you’ll get 50% commission.

The deal is that you don’t have to write any content, everything is created for you, and Patric Chan gets a small bit of your commission along with your membership fee.

CB Passive Income 4.0


What you get:

  • Ready made squeeze pages
  • Free hosting
  • Email newsletters
  • Auto-reply to emails
  • Free gifts to get people to sign up
  • Free status reports for purchase tracking
  • Custom URLs to send leads to
  • You will gain earn each email subscriber for life.


So Patric Chan is offering an I scratch your back you scratch my back scenario. But Patric is getting a much longer and more satisfying scratch, whereas you get a tickle, and wonder where this marriage is going.

It claims to be a passive system where they email the subscribers for you and all you need to do is set it up. There is actually a little more work involved, where you have to generate traffic to the opt in page.

This passive income scheme provides instructions for building an email list and sending the visitors to the squeeze page (where the sale happens). It’s squeeze page/sales page is ready made, comprising all the hook, line and sinkers.

*The material has recently been updated for 2017 and now has a much more attractive and modern design.

They give you two methods for attracting traffic to your website.

  • One is done through a number of Soloads, which is internet marketing jargon for internet marketing experts who already have an extensive collection of email lists on a variety of niches.
  • The other method is via social media and YouTube video.



It should be said that a fault in the model is that the focus is on driving a sell, rather than building a relationship between you and your subscriber. And a lack of control and creativity over how you are selling is limiting. It also doesn’t teach you to set up a business, but rather access to a marketing scheme where you play a middleman, and the money you make is dependant on how well you sell. Also, the title is quite misleading as it is not a completely passive system, in order to get it completely passive you must upgrade to higher levels of membership.

Building trust with a blog where you provide them with quality information is the best way to go. Of course that requires patience, and a little creativity doesn’t hurt. But that’s not to say that CB passive Income 4.0 doesn’t make you money, a lot of people have had success with it, but this is because of their creativity when marketing the product.

Unfortunately I didn’t have a great amount of time to invest in marketing, so I didn’t make a great deal but I can tell you that I made a surprising £300 with little effort on my 3rd month in with CB Passive Income. If you think you can promote products in a creative way, then do have a go with the readymade money making scheme.

The 14 day trial for $1 lets you try it out, so you don’t have to invest big money to see what it’s like.

1 Simple and Profitable Method – Blogging about your Hobby + Amazon Affiliates

1 Simple and Profitable Method – Blogging about your Hobby + Amazon Affiliates

1. Create a Blog

Start a blog from a niche that is ideally based on a hobby of yours. It’s better to make sure you’ve been interested in it for a while so that you’ve got plenty to write about. 

For your hosting provider, my favourite and the one with the best value (that I know of) is Bluehost from £6.95 per month.

For your blogging platform, choose WordPress, this is the most popular and flexible blogging platform with a huge variety of plugins the WordPress community has developed.

You can choose to work with a designer, or try to create the theme on your own. If you don’t want the headache of learning to code, there are drag and drop builders l recommend like Make and Beaver Builder. There are other drag and drop builders like Divi and X which are very good but you will never be able to change your theme if you go with these which can be a concern when you want to sell the blog when you’re bored of it. 

For designing your blog see How to Design a Blog in 2016.


2. Apply for Amazon Associates 

Find products for sale on Amazon related to your niche. 

This should be an easy task as Amazon sells just about EVERYTHING.

Join the Amazon associates program.amazonassociates

If you refer someone to the Amazon website, whatever they buy in the next year, you’ll get 4% of and if you earn a lot with their program you can climb up to 10%. Sure the percentage you make from an Amazon referral is a lot smaller than what you make from say a Clickbank sale. But Amazon has a lot more products available, and so they definitely convert.

You don’t even need to know how to sell. Amazon does all the work for you. You just have to have the products available. 


3. Write product reviews.

Write honest reviews about products related to your blog. Give the pros and cons and tell people where they can purchase the product if they are interested (hint: Amazon using your affiliate link.)


4. Write tutorials.

You can find tutorials around the internet related to your niche and if you like them, just learn them and rewrite the tutorial in your own words. It also helps to include information you’ve learned in the past that you think would spruce up this tutorial and make it stand out from the rest. Document the tutorial with a little creativity, taking photos of the affiliate product involved and provide the Amazon affiliate link. 

Hint: You can provide the affiliate link twice by including a ‘What You’ll Need’ box in the top right or left of your post. 


5. Write targeted blog posts

Write interesting articles with a focus on more specific detail. For example to start a fitness blog, you wouldn’t go for a post titled “How to Get Great Abs.” Many people have done this before, all these keywords and phrases are taken and so you’ll have to be more targeted with your articles.

You should try going for posts with a title like “What are the best types of food to eat before a jog?” This is more specific and it could be changed slightly by using a top ten foods instead, or meals, linking to various recipes (when linking to other blogs you should always @ the creator of the content in the hopes they’ll retweet/share the post so that you can hijack their audience count). The point is that it pays to be more specific as there is a lot less competition in the search listings.

At the end of the post you can make a little recommendation for Amazon  “My 3 Favourite Jogging Pants”, here you’ll suggest 3 jogging pants that can be purchased on Amazon. 

You can also just implement a selection of Amazon products into the blog, but when you make it personal to you and relevant to the blog post, it looks and feels more genuine. 



So that is a very simple way to make money blogging with Amazon Affiliates Program. Many times people get caught up in all the different and exciting ideas for a blog that there is no certain direction for it. So it is worth having everything planned out and and a clear objective so that you can be a successful affiliate of Amazon.

Commission Cartel – Earn $500 in your first 30 days

Commission Cartel – Earn $500 in your first 30 days

October 12 marks the launch of Michael Cheney’s new affiliate marketing package: The Commission Cartel.

Michael Cheney is an affiliate marketing millionaire whose products seem to convert like crazy, on JVZoo they have won multiple POTDs (Product of the day).

His products offer impressive sales pitches which you can use to market affiliate products. He has made this package to leave no work for you to do but watch and learn.

Cheney knows how to sell a product, and also has decades of experience in affiliate marketing, so he’s been in the game for a long time.

His new product, The Commission Cartel, was made because Cheney wanted a way to make it as easy and as low-cost as possible to get people started with affiliate marketing and then get them earning a recurring income each month.

His affiliate marketing package is one of the cheapest I’ve seen starting at $27.00, it is also promising a quick conversion of $500 in only 30 days, which is then supposed to build over time.

Here is an example of his earnings:

What makes Commission Cartel stand out from other affiliate marketing packages is that a person can start completely from scratch, it doesn’t require a website, email list or traffic to start making money.

This means that anyone can get started, whether you’ve never heard of affiliate marketing before (he claims a child could do it) or you know the rules and want that extra $omething each month.

Michael Cheney supplies you with his own affiliate marketing plan and teaches you everything he knows with the ultimate objective of turning you into a super affiliate marketer. 

In Commission Cartel you’ll find high quality affiliate marketing insider tips, along with some weird tricks that work surprisingly well, such as how to make more sales by deliberately NOT talking about the product.

Michael Cheney knows how to make a product irresistible, and with Commission Cartel you get the chance to use duplicates of his affiliate marketing businesses. 

So as the name suggests, he is building a huge affiliate family, who can use all his hook line and sinkers to reel in a buy. 

There are two memberships within The Commission Cartel:

The Godfather Package $27.00

The Godfather Package provides you with 5 copy and profit  income streams which make you a steady amount of $500 or more each month. Michael Cheney gives you a code word that grants you instant approval to promote 5 of the top selling products on JVZoo. Not only do you get all the material to promote these products, you also get bonuses to supply to your customers, which are huge earners 😉

To sum up, you get:

  • Instant approval to promote 5 best selling products
  • Copy and Paste promotional material
  • Bonus material to send when the buyer clicks through your link
  • Exclusively discounted coupon codes for the 5 campaigns

These are:

The Pros vs. Cons of Affilorama


  • Access to very helpful information sources and software applications.
  • Can access basic information without any investment.
  • Exclusive invitation to one of the largest affiliate marketing communities online
  • Trusted source of information from the well known affiliate marketer Mark Ling.
  • Never miss a trick, with all the information in one place you can be sure you’re doing it right.


  • Little communication/help offered with Mark Ling, you are passed over to a support team.
  • Limited free membership, to really make money with this you need premium
  • Too much choice with memberships- makes picking a membership harder.
  • The cost of the membership can build up when you opt into Affilorama’s upsells.



Affilorama is one of the most impressive affiliate training courses I’ve come across in terms of design and resources, but what makes them really stand out is how easy their tutorial and guides are to follow. The basic training will give you the fundamental methods for making money in affiliate marketing and grant you access to the supporting community. However there is a lot of information and vital tools which are witheld from the free membership and to be successful with affiliate marketing, accessing the premium membership information is essential. $67 per month for premium is quite expensive, but if you follow their instructions, you’ll soon be making that money back.

Price: Free to join — limited training, $1 thirty day trial then $67 monthly, three year payment plan for $497, several upsells

How To Separate Buyers From Non Buyers

How To Separate Buyers From Non Buyers

There are two important things to remember if you want your business to thrive:

1. The amount of exposure you give it

2. The appeal of your website to the visitor

First impressions are important, and because your business doesn’t have any form of personal contact, the image of the business plays a big part in it’s success rate. And so we have various tools we can use for the overall image, such as informative resources and analytical research that can help to establish trust between the client and supplier.

Get to know your target market

Researching into demographics will help to aim the item in the right direction and gain suitable attention for it.

Assess the items popularity

You should look into the items popularity, which can be done through checking how well it sells on shopping sites like eBay and Amazon.

Gain trust

There are certain things to consider that can comfort a buyer when they are deciding to purchase a product. These include the quantity, substantial availability, whether they are easily obtainable and the type of advertising which originally led them to the product.

We can also use tools that have been designed to keep track of the customers, their interest rates and product popularity. These features are already included in Shopify, eBay and Amazon.

The non-buyers will most likely be looking for the cheapest deals you have, which may not result in a purchase.

People who are browsing specifically to make a purchase are searching for the most relevant and interesting items you have on display. This type of buyer is more likely to read all of the information available.

Targeting these types of buyers can be done through niche marketing. To research for a lucrative niche you can use google adwords, and search for key phrases, identifying its CPC (cost per click) rate and competition. You can also use Google to see the amount of results your keyword uses.

For Example:

It is important to try out the items and see which do well with varying target markets.

Arranging a feedback module is important for the future success rate of an item. Some online shops like Shopify have a rating system for the customers to use.

It is also worth requesting feedback in a purchase confirmation email or an email reminder as many customers may forget to give feedback as their needs are already fulfilled. However it is important to not harrass a customer with emails, one way to avoid this is to give the customer a choice of email frequency.

Once you are an experienced seller, you should be aware of all the tactics you can employ to differentiate a buyer from a non-buyer and target them.

For those who seek professional help with marketing their e-commerce store, Make Them Buy is a coaching strategy with Dr Glenn Livingston whose creative market research has been published in the New York Times and the Los Angeles times. He has also worked with household names including American Express, Panasonic, Colgate, Unilever, Kodak and Burger King.

They also have live interactive monthly webinars where group members can share success tips and provide feedback for each other. At only $9.95 a month with a 60 day money back guarantee, so there’s no harm in testing the product out.

Affiliate Marketing Explained and 5 Steps to Get Started

Affiliate Marketing Explained and 5 Steps to Get Started

Affiliate marketing is one of the most profitable money making methods on the internet. The industry of affiliate marketing is growing faster now than ever. Its rise in popularity is mostly because of its money making potential for both the supplier and advertiser, creating a win-win result.


Becoming an affiliate marketer requires only two things:

1. Access to an audience

2. A little creativity


You will be advertising products and getting paid on a the basis of commissions. Because there are so many products out there, what you choose to promote will also effect how much you will be paid. If you already own a blog with a niche, then look for products offering affiliate commissions within that niche.


Step 1: Create a Website

To effectively market the products, a website is essential in attracting the visitor to the purchase button. The more professional a website looks, the more likely a visitor will make a purchase. So ensure that the website is easy to navigate, attractive and slick. What really motivates a visitor to make a purchase is including an interesting article with or about the affiliate product.


Step 2: Locate Relevant Products

When researching which products to promote, we have to assess whether these products will sell or not. We must consider if there is a demand for this particular item. So it is important to keep on top of trends. Analytics for trends can be found on google.com/trends/


Step 3: Test the Products

As a serious affiliate marketer you will be evaluating the outcomes of each product. You should know if the advertising of the product is costing you more money than the product is earning you.


Step 4: Earn lots of money!


Step 5: Branch out

Now that you are an established affiliate marketer, making substantial amount of money, thinking of more methods to market affiliate products should be your next project, as you’re now well aware how well the system works!
