CB Pirate is sold through Clickbank, so it’s easy to get a refund
You found this review (hopefully) before buying
Clearly a scam
Lessons are weak and not remotely comprehensive
No real mention of SEO, the best tool to a young affiliate marketer
Not even close to worth $197 or $67 recurring
Everything they teach you how to do for them, you could do for yourself for free and not have to split your profits
You’re basically paying THEM for the ability to do the hard work for them so they don’t have to do it themselves
Review of Clickbank Pirate (CB Pirate)
by Soren Jordansen and Cindy Battye
Overall Grade: F
I just finished looking through the entire member’s area of “Clickbank Pirate” by Soren Jordansen and Cindy Battye and I’ve got to say, that was HUGELY disappointing. This program under delivers on virtually every promise they made in the sales letter, particularly how much they exaggerate your ability to make money with the program.
What Good Programs Will Give You
Programs that will legitimately teach you the skills necessary to make a living in affiliate marketing will give elaborate video lessons that teach you every step in the process. These videos are sometimes over an hour long each because, sometimes, that’s just what it takes to learn. Some of these programs have dozens and dozens of videos in their library. Now that you know what a good program looks like, let me tell you what I found when reviewing Clickbank Pirate.
What Clickbank Pirate Gives You
Clickbank Pirate gives you a PDF guide that has multiple text-based lessons condensed into one file. Each topic that would be taught using several lengthy videos in a legitimate affiliate marketing program are taught using an average of 2-5 paragraphs each. At this point in this review, you may think I’m exaggerating. I wish I could say I was. You’re given almost no material to teach you the skills necessary to be a successful internet marketer, but that’s not even the worst part.
You’re Doing Their Work for Them!
In the CB Pirate program, Soren and Cindy give you several affiliate offers that you can promote. If you’re new to affiliate marketing, you may not catch exactly what’s going on here. The affiliate link they give you appears something like this: cbpirate.AFFILIATE OFFER.com/your-affiliate-id. So why is that a big deal? Because you’re not actually promoting through YOUR affiliate link. You’re promoting products using THEIR affiliate link with a tracking ID that tells them to pay you part of their commission. These are offers that you can signup to promote on your own for free and get 100% of the commission!
So basically when you signed up for Clickbank Pirate based on the promises Soren Jordansen and Cindy Battye made to you, you were unknowingly paying them either $197 or $67/month to do all of their heavy lifting for them. You’re ultimately paying someone to work for them. That sounds a little backwards to me, how about you?
So is CB Pirate the right program for you? Definitely not. Unless you enjoy getting ripped off, you should avoid this product like a plague. The teaching materials are a joke and someone is taking a chunk of your hard-earned commissions.
