My friend Matthew Neer from Viral Cash App is back with another product for me to check out. Aren’t I lucky? It looks like this one’s been around a while. We’re going to find out…what is CB Passive Income 5.0? (Yes, this is the 5th version! I am happy that they at least update their product.) Can you really make money from this turnkey system or is CB Passive Income a scam?
Here are the areas we’ll explore in this CB Passive Income 5.0 review.
Product: CB Passive Income 5.0
Cost: $47 / month or $497 lifetime access
Owner(s): Patric Chan (Wow, a real person!)
The sales page isn’t super hype-y. That’s good to see!
Here’s what I learned from watching the video:
Patric says to “Just clone everything.”
Patric says he promotes ClickBank products to his customers, which he claims only add good products to their marketplace. Because of this, he knows he’s adding value for his customers.
Um, no. This is a red flag to me. ClickBank does not only have good, legitimate products. We’ve seen that time and time again in my Not Recommended reviews. There are products that are “legitimate”, I guess in there, but might not be good.
Another thing that happens is that ClickBank might kick a product out for violating their terms, but then those marketers just re brand the product and load it in there again. There are some good products in ClickBank for sure, but there are definitely some terrible products there too.
With Patric’s turnkey system, his customers could duplicate exactly what he was doing in just 3 steps:
(Uh oh. I see a problem here. Do you see it yet? We’ll discuss a little later.)
Even intermediate internet marketers would struggle because:
(Whew, that’s a lot of stuff there! Some of it’s true and some of it isn’t. We’ll talk about this a little later too…)
In a nutshell, you can clone Patric’s entire business system so that it can generate affiliate commissions for you too, “on auto-pilot.”
Alright, I watched 10 minutes of the video and there’s 20 minutes left! Yikes! I value my time, so I think we’re good here. We have enough information to go on.
Luckily, this is one of those rare videos that kind of gives you an idea of what you’ll be getting for your money. It’s one of these done-for-you systems where you get to use Patric’s web pages and email marketing content to send out to people.
If those people click on the links in your marketing materials, you’ll get paid a commission. Since you’ll be promoting ClickBank products, you’ll generally be getting about 50% in commissions.
From doing a little more research, what you’ll get is a couple of squeeze pages (these are pages where you collect email addresses), and then Patric will add them to an email list and he’ll send out emails to these people for you. He’ll be doing the marketing for you.
Sounds great, right? Not so fast…!
First of all, I didn’t buy this product so I can’t 100% for sure say what’s all included. Because of that, and because you DO get something for your money, I wouldn’t call it a scam.
But I also wouldn’t recommend it.
We have some issues with this program.
First of all, anytime you come across a “done-for-you” system, I would be very wary. Sure, they sound great, right? You don’t have to do a thing! Everything is done for you already! You just let the money roll in. No.
There are a couple of things I don’t like about done-for-you systems:
And here are a couple more problems with this program:
So, while this isn’t a scam, and there may even be some decent training involved here, I still can’t recommend it.
Another thing I don’t like about these done-for-you systems is that they make it seem like you’re incapable of learning and doing things on your own. Look at that list up there that says even intermediate marketers would struggle.
Some of those things are true. There ARE some costs associated with having an online business. (But they’re much lower than having an OFFLINE business, that’s for sure!) And it is important to have support! (Although, I’m not sure what kind of support CB Passive Income offers. I only saw a Facebook group mentioned that doesn’t sound very active at all.)
The rest of that list is ridiculous. You are fully capable of doing all of those other things. I really recommend forgetting these done-for-you systems and learning how to do what you need to do to have your OWN website.
It’s not that hard if you have the right training. I always recommend Wealthy Affiliate because they have step-by-step training that walks you through everything. You can join as a Free Starter Member to see how it all works and to see if this is something that you would enjoy doing.
While I didn’t purchase the program, from my research, these are the types of things that are included with CB Passive Income. You can see that Wealthy Affiliate just offers much, much more. And if you decided you love it and signed on as a Premium Member, Wealthy Affiliate’s cost is only $2 more per month. That’s it. And you get SO MUCH MORE.
I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for quite a while now, and I will continue to stay a member because they offer more than any other platform out there. If you REALLY want to learn how to make money online, then you really can’t go wrong with Wealthy Affiliate. I truly believe that. If I didn’t, I would not recommend them. (Nor would I stay a member!)
