Raiders of the Lost Commissions
“There has to be more to life than this” he thought.
He’d heard the legends – that there was treasure to be found in a mysterious place called the Internet.
He’d done his research and had found countless reports of people who had gone out in search of online treasure.
Some had headed out, faced various hardships and come back weary, demoralised and angry. During their travels they had suffered many losses and barely escaped with their sanity, only to come to conclusion that they had wasted their time, energy and resources on nothing more than a wild goose chase.
Others had headed out with determined vigour, announcing to the world that nothing was going to stop them from finding their treasure. They were neither seen nor heard from again.
Still others ventured out into vast jungles of the online world in search of this seemingly elusive treasure. These ones reported back that they had actually found what they had gone out to seek. They returned happy, content and satisfied that they had accomplished what they had set out to do. However, their treasure and just how they were able to find it remained a closely-guarded secret, only to be revealed to an elite few.
He contemplated all of this.
So he made his preparations, learning as much as he could about the terrain ahead of him and the many perils and pitfalls that may await him.
He gathered together his supplies, got himself kitted out and headed off into the jungles of the Internet in search of treasure…
My Lost Commissions
We will pick up the story of our intrepid treasure hunter a little later on.
But I’m sure that if you’ve had any experience at all of trying to discover how to make money online, or trying to actually do it for yourself, then you will be able to identify with the different experiences of the characters in our story:
- Reports of online riches.
- People saying that there’s nothing out there and it’s all a myth.
- Determined people saying that they will crack this ‘make money online thing’, only to be never heard from again.
- Claims and apparent evidence that it is indeed possible to find a way to make money online, but when you try to find out from the persons who are making the claims, it seems that they are only prepared to reveal the real secrets to a select, chosen few. Trying to actually find someone who will show you the real evidence and not only that, but who will be a reliable, trustworthy guide on your own journey, is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
These are all challenges that can face even the most determined of online adventurer.
Have you experienced any of these?
If you have attempted the search for online riches but have yet to find them, I have good news for you:
However, it’s not always as simple as some may lead you to believe. Sure, sometimes people strike gold and find what they are looking for quite quickly, but more often than not it requires hard, diligent work and patience.
But where do the “lost commissions” come into this?
Well, maybe about three or four years ago when I really didn’t know what I was doing, I had bought an online course (yes, just one of many!). I can’t recall what this course was or who it was by, but it was the first time I’d found something that made even a little bit of sense when it came to the possibility of actually making money online.
Every couple of days I would check my YouTube stats and Clickbank stats but, although my YouTube numbers were climbing, my Clickbank balance remained zero.
What I did next was what so many do….
I bought another course and ended up forgetting all about that one attempt at making money that I’d made with that one little video on YouTube.
Fast forward perhaps a year or so and I had secured myself a coach and mentor who was teaching me what I really needed to do in order to be successful online.
I don’t know why it popped into my mind, but I decided to log into my Clickbank account.
What I saw both surprised and confused me….
Upon further examination, I realised that these sales had come from that little YouTube video I had made all that time ago!
Now, the kicker here is that Clickbank has a crazy system in place whereby you have to have made sales that have been paid for with a variety of payments. Until that happens, Clickbank charge you fees which get taken out of your commissions, so unless you manage to meet their criteria in time your commissions disappear into Clickbank’s pockets.
On the one hand this was a little disappointing, of course, but on the other hand I felt quite empowered.
Well, although the amounts I had lost weren’t much, they’d still have been better in my pocket than in Clickbank’s! But this emphasised something to me:
Even without really knowing what I was doing, even without keeping track of things and even though I had made this video months or years before, it still WORKED!
Yes, I’d done this one, simple thing, left it alone and it had gone on to work happily in the background.
No, the results weren’t massive, but hey, ‘lightbulb moment’ – the results you desire don’t always come immediately.
Recently I have heard of two people who have made four-figure commissions that came from people who initially opted in to receive more information over a year ago! They had gone into a high-converting follow-up process and this had worked in the background. No, the results hadn’t come quickly, but they HAD come!
Now, think of my example of that one video for a moment. Just imagine if I had taken that process and multiplied it, added to it and worked on a strategy surrounding it consistently. Do you think I would have achieved greater results?
Darn tootin’ I would have!
Here’s the thing:
So many people try bits and pieces to make money online but because they don’t see results quickly or, more to the point, they don’t see the results they want, they assume that whatever it is they’ve tried isn’t working and they move on to the next ‘shiny object‘.
But, like anything, making money online requires work and patience.
So, while I had lost my commissions because I hadn’t stuck with promoting Clickbank products and being able to meet their payout criteria, I didn’t mind. Why not? Because I had learned a valuable lesson, one that I could bear in mind from thereon in and also share with others as I am doing now.
Finding Commissions and Keeping Them!
So then, back to our story….
Our treasure hunter, like so many before him, had decided to venture out into the Internet jungle to search for treasure.
Yes, he learned for himself that the reports of there being treasure to be found were true!
Furthermore, once he discovered this, he made sure that he was going to help others to find it too.
So, what made the difference? What was it that enabled him to succeed where so many others had failed?
He’d taken with him an important tool:
A map that showed him exactly how to get to the treasure.
Yes, using his map he was able to plan out his route and find exactly where the treasure was located.
More than that, he’d also enlisted the help of a team of people to help him. He had an experienced guide with him who had traversed the route many times and knew exactly where the treasure was located while at the same time helping him to avoid obstacles and pitfalls.
He also had a team with him to assist him, to watch his back and to give him encouragement when the going got tough.
What if I told you that you could have all this yourself?
That’s right – you too can have a copy of the same map that I have used, have the same guide who accompanied me on my journey and have a team of people to help you.
When you click on the map below, you will be taken to a page where you can opt-in to watch a free video.
I strongly advise that you do this. This video will give you the introduction and background to the very system that I have used myself and am still using now.
Will you find Internet riches from this? Perhaps. But then again, perhaps not.
It will all depend on the action you take.
If you remain determined, take action and make use of the map, the guide and the helpers, then you will be much closer to reaching the treasure that so many search for yet never find.
Just like our intrepid adventurer, I want you to succeed.
But just whether or not you will do that is down to you.
Just click the treasure map, watch the video and get hold of this potentially life-changing system.
Over to you….
What things have you learned in your online adventures?
