CB Passive Income, Product Overview

CB Passive Income, offered by internet marketing giant Patrick Chan, is an automated email marketing system that is designed to create passive income for you on autopilot.

It simplifies the process of building an email list by teaching you to generate traffic that can be sent to a squeeze page to build a profitable email list through the offer of a free product.

This is the way the advertising for the product goes:

Imagine if…
∙ You didn’t need to write or produce any content
∙ You didn’t need to create any products to sell
∙ You didn’t need to come up with your own free report
∙ You didn’t need to pay for hosting or an auto-responder
∙ You didn’t need to send emails at all
∙ You didn’t need to provide any customer service or follow up
∙ You didn’t need to research for what products or affiliate programs to promote
∙ You didn’t need to learn internet marketing

Heck. With this program, you don’t need to do anything except for one simple task!

And that simple task is driving traffic to your site where you entice people with a free gift to give you their email addresses for the CB Passive Income system to market to.

When you sign up as member of CB Passive Income, you will receive:

1. Free hosting
2. A top notch web page that has been tested to convert at 50%
3. Attractive free offers that you will use to entice visitors to subscribe to your list
4. Patrick’s auto responder which will do the rest of the work for you
5. Crafted emails and more free reports which will be emailed out to your list with your unique code

As all the promotions to high converting Clickbank products will have your very own Clickbank ID in them, when a sale is made, you will receive a commission fee which can vary between 15% and 95%.

The Good & the Bad

Like any product, the CB Passive Income system has its good and bad sides. First, let’s look at the good ones.

The Good:

PRO #1

When you join CB Passive Income, you will instantly have access to everything you need to start your own affiliate business online. The only thing you will do is to give away the free quality report you are offered so that the system will take it over and do the rest for you.
There are five reports on different topics, as you can see at the end of this post.

PRO #2

Leveraging Patrick’s experience, credibility and services makes this system powerful since those three qualities count a lot in online work. The virtually done-for-you system also saves you the headache of creating a squeeze page that converts well to get some opt-ins. You also don’t have to worry about promoting products yourself, think of the value to give your giveaways, know how to craft compelling emails and pinpoint the exact timing to promote. This saves you many more people unsubscribing from your list and thus lets you make sales.

The Bad

Now the bad:

CON #1

The product page gives you the impression that you won’t need to work hard in order to make money from the system. That cannot be true. “Push Button” systems hardly work in the online marketing field. Only smart work pays.

CON #2

Building an email list to which you can market is an excellent way to make money in affiliate marketing. But time and patience are needed to build one. You must also build a relationship with your list through the sending of useful material to help them solve the particular problems for which they had subscribed to your list. This builds trust between you and the list. This personal relationship with the people on your list is what will make them your clients for life.
Although Patric’s system contains these elements, it seems to give a simplistic view of it.

CON #3

Patric designed CB Passive Income for people to use it to earn quickly online. What he doesn’t teach is how to build a business online: things like how to build a website, how to target keywords, how to design squeeze pages, how to split-test, how to rank a website, how and why an email list works, etc..
Therefore if you are new to online business, I would advise that you join a program that teaches how to build an affiliate business online first.

CON #4

Not only do people not want to sign up to a random list for fear of being spammed (in this case, with a bunch of promotional emails of ClickBank products), but also they balk at buying from unknown sources.
Those who have subscribed to your CB Passive Income list risk unsubscribing from it when the system floods their email boxes, if their email providers’ spam filters had not already done so.

CON #5

Since this is a push button system, the question is what does the beginner acquire as online experience for other online works? While your online work must let you grow to embrace other online works to create several streams of income.

CON #6

You can’t customize your website. A website like the one you get from Patric cannot rank in Google, that is why you must continue driving traffic to it.

CON #7

You don’t know the ClickBank products being sold on your behalf. Yet, to better promote products, the affiliate marketer must first test them to determine if they are good or not before recommending them to potential buyers.

CON #8

While you can see and export your email list to an email service provider like Aweber or Getresponse, you cannot control the emails that are sent out to your subscribers.

CON #9

Although the CB Passive Income System indicates where to go to get traffic, lead generation is not an easy subject to master. It is challenging enough for the experienced marketer, so for the beginning marketer, it could be like the difference between day and night.

Who is CB Passive Income For?

Patric says for the past 2 years, his system has helped so many newbies to make their first dollar online and experienced marketers to add another new stream of income into their business on auto-pilot.
But I think CB Passive Income is most effective for newbies who have no experience in online marketing since Patrick promises to do all the marketing work for them.

CB Passive Income Tools & Training

CB Passive Income members have access to some unique traffic training courses. Some of them are:

1. Youtube Marketing, including everything from ranking on Google to ranking on Youtube.
2. How to combine YouTube videos with other social media (Facebook, Google+, Linkedin, Twitter, Pinterest, Squidoo, etc.) and get lots of traffic.
3. Solo ads
4. Facebook Marketing
5. Guest blogging
6. Press release
7. StumbleUpon
8. Forum Marketing
9. Some tips and tricks to improve conversions and build a higher quality email list
10. Some traffic generating tricks, etc.

There are also many banners and email swipes that members can use to help them promote their free report website.

CB Passive Income Price

As stated above, you can begin with the $1 Trial or go as high as $197 each year for the Fast Cash Series.

As with most internet marketing systems, CB Passive Income has its share of upsells they will push on you, so be careful of getting caught in that vicious cycle.

My Final Opinion of CB Passive Income

Despite its shortcomings, Patric’s CB Passive Income system is not a scam, for there’s even a money-back guarantee.

VERDICT:

CB Passive Income is one of those systems where it is difficult to pronounce an outright verdict of legitimate or not legitimate, as it has elements qualifying it for both. But I will say that it is more legitimate than the other.
So if you are a newbie eager to make money on the internet, you can give CB Passive Income a try. For the reasons that:

1. The only concern of yours will be to give away a free report and get subscribers.
2. Since everything is done for you, you won’t worry about setting up any other software or programs.
3. Since Patrick’s quality free reports may build a list for you, I will advise you to sign up to Aweber and learn how to use email marketing to build trust between you and the list. This will be highly beneficial to you for your future marketing.
4. Since Patrick is a well known in the online world, people will more likely buy from him (on your behalf) than from you. My Honest Review of 72 Amazing Ways to Internet Profit

  1. Hi Akoli

    This is an excellent review of CB Passive Income. Although I am an experienced marketer the push button theory automatically turns me off programs like these. I guess you and I know full well this isn’t a game of pushing buttons. At the very least you need your own niche and good quality content.

    I also prefer having full control of my business whereas I get the feeling CB Passive Income holds all the cards? In theory I think it has potential but the biggest hurdle will be driving traffic to the offers. For new comers this could be difficult. All in all a great read.

    Kind Regards

    1. Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for your compliments about my CB Passive Income review. You’re right if the push button theory automatically turns you off programs like these. As marketer Mark Ling said, there’s nothing like a push button system. So I agree with you that this isn’t a game of pushing buttons. That’s why this business is in addition to my own niche and good quality content. I was attracted to it because it was being piloted by ClickBank and Ebay super seller Patric Chan.

      Yes, CB Passive Income somehow holds all the cards. Yes, this is a sort of a done-for-you system but the problem as you strssed is how to drive traffic to the offers. Intermediate level marketers could use this to earn some money for paying small expenses.

      Thanks for stopping by and for your detailed review. I really do appreciate.

      Kind Regards,
      Akoli
