CB Passive Income 5.0 Review: Scam Or Legit? (2018 Update)
Welcome to my CB Passive Income 5.0 review. I have reviewed the two previous versions of the program and here is the new one. CB Passive Income is a legit affiliate marketing system but there are pros and cons like any other product.
On this post, you can read how exactly it works and what you can expect if you decide to take action.
What Is CB Passive Income 5.0?
CB Passive Income is an affiliate marketing system created by Patric Chan. With this program, he helps beginners to make money with Clickbank as affiliate marketers.
Patric Chan is a best selling author and successful internet marketer who wants to help people to start their own online business. He has created other products as well. For example, you can read my review about Blogging Guru Blueprint which is a legit program about blogging. Also, he has published some ebooks on Amazon about success and money.
CB Passive Income is a high gravity Clickbank product (best selling). It was the number one for many months the last few years and it would not be a surprise if it will climb in the first place again.
On this site, I have reviewed many Clickbank products. Many of them were not so good. However, CB Passive Income is a legit one. Many big names on the affiliate marketing have promoted it before. Also, I have personally tried it and checked the resources on the members’ area.
Most beginners believe that internet marketing and building an online business is too complicated because some people support these opinions to sell their products.
For this reason, Patric created CB Passive Income which is a super simple program to get started online. I think that anyone who has a laptop and a connection to the internet can use this system. The bad news is that you don’t completely control your business.
Your success and your earnings with this program depend on Patric Chan’s performance. Of course, he is a top marketer and you can expect good results.
How Does It Work?
The reason why you don’t control every part of your business is because CB Passive Income is responsible for a few things.
The business model is the following:
- You send traffic to a landing page that is created by CB Passive Income.
- The landing pages have a professional design and offer to your visitors a free gift.
- If the visitors give their email address to get the freebie, they receive emails and offers from the autoresponder of the program (by Patric Chan).
- When they buy something, you earn a commission.
If you want to start an online business from scratch, you must be responsible for all these steps. However, if you send traffic to the landing pages of the program, you are responsible only for the first part.
This is the best part of the system:
You can completely focus and master your traffic game. Just find a way to send targeted traffic. There are some good guides about traffic on the members’ area as well.
This system has some funs and some people who do not like it. It makes sense that when the quality of the traffic is not good enough, you will not make enough sales or not sales at all. For this reason, you must do good work on this part.
Lastly, you have the option to outsource even the only task that you must handle. There is an outsource promotion. It costs some extra money but in this way you can sit back and wait.
To get results from this program, you must be willing to trust the system. The reputation of the owner helps you to expect good things to happen. So, it’s on you to give it a try and make it work.
What’s Included In The Training?
When you get on the members’ area, there is an introduction to the program and how it works and then, you can get started with the training.
You can find two steps:
1. On the first step, the users of CB Passive Income will set up their profile. The most important step is to fill in your Clickbank ID. Without a Clickbank account, you cannot use the program. It’s free to create one and available to many countries.
2. After setting up your profile, you can get your links and start sending traffic to the landing pages. On this version of the program, there is training for three different ways to get traffic:
It’s an easy way to get started because you just need to find internet marketers who will allow you to send on their lists. It works well on the internet marketing niche and the cost is affordable most of the times.
You will get a 35 page PDF ebook on solo advertising. The ebook is unique and included great training that covers all the aspects of this method.
Bing is the second biggest search engine in the world. Many online marketers love Bing Ads. On the training, you can find two videos of 30 minutes length each one. It will be easy to learn how to use Bing Ads with CB Passive Income.
There is also a link to the training on the official page of Bing Ads to get more information.
Free Youtube Traffic Training:
For those who do not want to spend money to send traffic on their landing pages, it is recommended to get started with YouTube. There are videos, screenshots and a strategy to get into internet marketing niche with YouTube videos.
You do not have to be in front of the screen. Affiliate marketers use many ways to create videos and promote their links. With the training here, you get enough details to get started.
Who Is It For?
CB Passive Income is for people who want to make money online but they do not know the way. So, it’s created for beginners.
In my opinion, a beginner is anyone who hasn’t earned money online yet or can’t earn a full-time income for any reason. Also, it’s great for people who are not willing to create content and build their own websites and landing pages.
The only problem is that you can’t send your own emails and completely control your business.
You can add the emails of your subscribers to your autoresponder automatically with Inbox Pro Version that costs some extra money but these people want to subscribe to the Patric Chan’s list and not to yours. However, you earn the commissions as promised from every sale.
Patric Chan promotes only products from Clickbank’s listings. All the products are relevant to the internet marketing niche. You have no choice to your niche or the products.
For some beginners, this is exactly what they are looking for. They do not have to mess with all the technical issues and writing. Other people want total control. I think all the business models have pros and cons so it’s on you to decide if this is for you.
If you are a more experienced marketer, I do not see why you don’t create your own landing page and autoresponder emails. However, it can work for more experienced marketers as well.
How Much Does It Cost?
I have already mentioned on this review, two-three features with extra cost. So, there are a few upsells. However, you can use the program and get results without them.
With the starting price that costs $47 per month or $497 one time fee, you can get everything that is mentioned in this review. The features that are available at an extra cost are the following:
Inbox Pro Version: This feature will enable to connect your CB Passive Income account with your autoresponder. There is no reason to get rushed with that. It would be better to consider it later when you get some results.
Mass Bot Profits: An automated chatbox to promote digital products on Facebook Messenger. I have not used it and you can use the program without it.
Internet To Income Insider: With this upsell, you can receive emails from Patric Chan about opportunities in the internet marketing world. If you have purchased the 5.0 version of the program, you can get this upsell for free. For the users who have bought a previous version, there is an extra cost.
The good news is that you will not see any surprises inside. Yes, there are upsells but they are not necessary to make this system work. You can get results without them. Also, two of the threes upsells will not help with your effort to send traffic but you can get them to expand your knowledge and your business later.
For those who do not like to risk, there is a 60-day money back guarantee. If you do not like what you see inside or you can’t make it work for you, just ask your money back. The guarantee is provided by Clickbank and it’s 100% legit.
Pros and Cons
1. Legit Program: This is the fifth version of the program. Many affiliate marketers have bought and tried on the past. While there are complaints on the internet for every program, we can say that this is a legit one. The resources are professional and the training is good.
2. Owner: Patric Chan’s reputation is a strong reason why you should consider to give it a try. Your subscribers will receive emails from his autoresponder. It improves your chances to get results.
3. Beginner Friendly: The program is created to help beginners to get results. As a member of the program, you will be responsible only for the traffic. It cannot be simpler than this one.
4. Traffic Methods: There is training for three ways that can work. Solo advertising, Bing Ads and free YouTube Traffic. You will get the information you need on the members’ area to create your first campaigns.
1. Upsells: No one like the upsells. They increase the cost of the program and this can’t be a good thing. You can read about the upsells of CB Passive Income above.
2. Control: The only issue of the system. The fact that someone else does all the hard work for you it’s a good thing because you can focus on marketing. However, if you do not like how Patric Chan works, you cannot do anything about it.
My Final Verdict
Well, I have already mentioned that it’s a legit program. On the previous reviews, I had ranked it as an average program. It recommended ways to get traffic that did not really work and the training was not good enough on them like forum traffic or Pinterest traffic.
On this update, the training is much better and it is focused on YouTube, Bing Ads, and Solo advertising. Overall, it’s a good strategy.
The cost of the program is affordable for most people who are interested in buying a program like this one. The idea is to send quality traffic. If you do not know how to achieve that, use the training in the members’ area. Your results depend on the traffic.
For those who do not want to spend any money at all, there is a 60-day money back guarantee (get your money back any time you want) and you can focus on creating videos on the internet marketing niche. You will get ideas on what videos to create on the training.
If you have some budget to spend on advertising, you can start stronger and create some campaigns.
So, it’s a simple way to get into affiliate marketing and earn some money.
