Most beginners do well to start off with affiliate marketing.

5) The product comes with a 60-day money back guarantee. So, you have 2 months to give CB University 2.0 a test run. Based on personal experience, most likely once you join, you’ll probably stick around for a long time because it has that much value.

6) CB University has a forum for you to hang out with your peers. Ask questions and mingle with other fellow marketers. It’s an active community that’s supportive and you’ll learn a lot from  interacting here.

This beats buying some eBook from some unknown marketer and being left to your own devices to figure it out. Only the marketer benefits since he or she has taken your money and now is no where to be contacted for help.

7) The program is also equipped with a very useful toolkit that you’ll use over and over in your business. This toolkit consists of a set of tools and online video training that covers some of the technical things that most beginners struggle with.

How It's Not Up to Scratch

Deedy Points Out Bad Points

1) Just like any online course, you’ll need to study and apply what is taught. The information is extremely useful, but action is key to all success.

For some reason, most newbies hesitate to act on the information. You must overcome this mental obstacle to see success. CB University is not a winning lottery ticket or a trust fund worth millions that is dished out each month. You MUST do the work.

2) The amount of information in CB University can be overwhelming to a beginner. To overcome this and not let your mind convince you that the process is too difficult, is to take it one step at a time.

And the best way to get around this problem is to focus on just being an affiliate in the beginning, instead of a vendor. Once you’ve learned the ropes and are generating affiliate commissions, you’ll be more confident to take the leap and become a product vendor.

3) The membership is a recurring fee. A beginner who is strapped for cash might find that the monthly fee is a burden.

TIP

Get a page builder, like Thrive Architect or OptimizePress 3.0, for a one-time fee and build your pages at a much lower cost. But the down side to this is it would be an external program, not conveniently built into the CB University system.

So, if you want the convenience of all the tools in one place, ClickBank’s funnel building tool is accessible directly from CB University. An additional plus it it is easy to learn allowing you to build a funnel, on average, in about 4 hours from start to finish.

Check out the sales funnel below which shows you the monetary breakdown associated with each added benefit.

You are offered the option of payments, which if you are pinched for money, pay as you go is a great way to go. By implementing the system…actually doing the work, you can cover the costs through your own sales.
