What’s with Clickbank University -Training overview!

As your mentor and coach, it is my responsibility to try these various programs so you don’t have to spend a lot of money trying them all yourself.  Today, I’m going to be talking to you about Clickbank University! What’s with Clickbank University? That’s exactly what we are going to explore as I work through the training modules.

Affiliate Disclosure

As an affiliate marketer, I signed up to be an affiliate of this program as well, so if you do purchase through my link, I will receive a commission (at no extra cost to you).  I thank you in advance if you do decide to purchase through my link!


There are two different sections of the Clickbank University training. There is the 8-Week Affiliate Track and the 12-Week Publisher Track. You can see the outlines of them here:


8-Week Affiliate Track


12-Week Publisher Track


In this article, I’m going to review the 8-Week Affiliate Track.  I do have a great interest in the publisher track as well. I purchased a program called Designrr E-book Creator, and I plan to make ebooks that I can market and sell on Clickbank as well. If you subscribe to my blog over on the right sidebar, you’ll receive a notification whenever I post a new article, so you will be able to read the posts about the 12-Week Publisher Track when I go through that part of the course.

Week 1 of Training

I promised you that as I went through the training, I would share my findings with you. Here is what I was trained on during Week 1 of the Affiliate Marketer Track.

What's With Clickbank UniversityMindset & Motivation

I know this seems elementary, but it is critical to your success in this business. The plain truth is that if you go into this with a mindset that, “This is never going to work,” or “Some people make it, I hope I’m one of them,” you probably won’t be successful. You’ll give up before you’ve had a chance to succeed.

If you go into this business knowing that you are going to succeed (because thousands of people are very successful at it, and with a proven formula, anyone can do it, given they have the proper mindset), you will be a huge success.

Goals in Clickbank UniversityGoals

If you’ve been in business before, you know that writing your goals and creating a business plan are essential for success. The program teaches you the importance of writing not only your long-term goals, but your short-term goals as well. Accomplishing goals feeds into your motivation, so it’s important to have milestones along the way to give you that success.

Training Material

What’s with Clickbank University?  Proper foundation!  As I mentioned, the first week is about mindset. Short-term and long-term goals are especially important in any business, and affiliate marketing is no different. As part of your training materials for this weekly class, you’ll receive a sheet outlining goal-setting and motivation.

Motivation is what I’m here for at Coaching for Internet Marketers as well. I mean that. I am available through the comments section of any of my articles, and I am also available personally by email. If you want to contact me, please do so at any time, and I’ll get right back to you.

What you’ll need to begin


Wealthy Affiliate Website

In order to implement what you’re going to learn in Clickbank University, and in order to start affiliate marketing, you’re going to need a website. There are strategies you can use where you don’t have a website, but you’re going to want to set up a real business which will eventually partially run on auto-pilot. You don’t want to keep working hard, you want to work smart.

My #1 Recommendation for a website is a free option you can get through the Wealthy Affiliate platform. Now, their Starter membership requires no credit card or debit card. It is 100% free to sign up and you will actually get two websites for free with full training to set them up.

That being said, once you get rolling, there are a lot of advantages to upgrading to the Wealthy Affiliate Premium membership. You get up to 50 websites, and a lot of benefits to help with the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) like website comments, traffic, community and unlimited training.

Here is the comparison chart to show you the two levels and what is included. Take a look:

Email Marketing Platform

You’ve heard the expression, “The money is in the list.” It’s quite true. You have to get yourself into the mind of a business person. You want to provide value to your readers and products to meet their needs, and you want to stay top on their mind when it comes to your niche.

Therefore, you need to set up email campaigns to send out to your readers. This is critical to your success.

The Clickbank University recommends the same email marketing provider that I recommend, and that is Aweber. I have written an article about this program, and you can read about it here and sign up when you’re ready. Part of the Clickbank University program is training on the AWeber campaigns, so I do recommend you sign up as soon as possible:

Another thing to consider

I am finding that while Clickbank University is getting into training your mindset (critical in this business), I am not finding (yet anyway) a lot of the detailed training on affiliate marketing. I’m not sure if they assume their students have a base of affiliate marketing knowledge, and I am just starting the training, so it may get more detailed as the training progresses (make sure you’re subscribed so you get alerts of my new articles on the subject), but you will definitely get a solid base of knowledge on affiliate marketing through Wealthy Affiliate.

Take a look here at a couple of articles on Wealthy Affiliate to give you an idea about their program. This first article will tell you about the program, the training you’ll receive in the starter program, and then it will link you to other articles if you want to explore further details:

This second article gives you a full description of the training you’ll receive inside the Premium platform. Note that there are new training modules added daily, and also weekly live trainings, so this is not a complete list by any means:

Clickbank University Instructors

I like the continuity of the Clickbank University. There are two successful marketers and the owners of the University, Adam Horowitz and Justin Atlan, who take you through the training.  They are brilliant, and I like their teaching style.  They also have a lot of amazing guest speakers they interview – talk about valuable!   Here is a picture of Adam and Justin:

  1. This is awesome, I am just getting to know about clickbank university. I’ve read through a lot of affiliate marketing programs this seems to look better than what I have read so far. This looks worth trying, I hope this platform is secured. I will like to know if there is a referral bonus. Also, what is the average amount one can earn in a month as a beginner?

    1. Hey Ola, this is Clickbank we’re talking about.  They are extremely secure.  These guys are geniuses.  As far as money, I never tell anyone how much they can make because there are too many variables.  Some people work a couple of hours a day, some work a full day, some work all the time.  It really is what you put into it.  Are you going to use paid advertising or SEO?  How much time do you devote?  How well do you follow instructions?  There is a proven formula, and if you work hard and follow it, honestly, the sky is the limit in this business!   – Babs

  2. Thanks, Babs, for writing out this lovely article and I must say its a must for everyone to read and digest..I was introduced to affiliates marketing by a friend and I saw it working firsthand for him. Having read your post, it gave me more interest in the affiliates training to become an affiliate marketer. I would love to make use of this training. Best regards, Adam

    1. Well, Adam, you were lucky to have a friend who guided you.  I had to scout the internet to find the proper program, and believe me I definitely tried a lot of ridiculous scam programs before I was fortunate to come across Wealthy Affiliate.  I have been a member for quite a while.  No I am researching Clickbank University, and we will see what kind of value this holds.   – Babs

  3. Hi Babs Wagner,
    This is an excellent comparative review of the click bank university and the wealthy affiliate training platform. I have heard about click bank university training before. After considering all feature and training model opportunity I have joined the wealthy affiliate program already. I believe this is a great platform for learning and establishing a successful online business. I believe that many people will find great help from your article. Thanks for writing this genuine information for all.

    1. Honestly, I wasn’t really trying to compare Clickbank University with Wealthy Affiliate.  Wealthy Affiliate does not promote any particular product, they teach you to market within your niche, aside from becoming an affiliate of theirs, of course.  Clickbank is promoting you promoting their particular products, so I’m thinking the training is going to probably be different.  We will find out as I move through the curriculum.  Stay tuned to this website for more as I progress.   – Babs

  4. Nice one Babs. ClickBank is quite popular, never knew there is something called ClickBank University. I appreciate the review, and I look forward to continuing with you as you go throught he training.  The two core curriculum looks good, but I recently joined Wealthy Affiliates where I can learn and grow my business, so I will work with that for now until I learn more.  

    1. Yes, that’s totally understandable, especially since Wealthy Affiliate has such a robust and full training schedule.  You will learn so much there.  Good luck.  – Babs

  5. Your review on click bank training is appreciated. I have a reviews online about click bank and good numbers of the review confirmed its legitimacy. The trainings are really cool and I agree that mindset and motivation plus goals are really the first key things to start with when going into affiliate marketing. All other training can follow and success is sure. Your post is informative and helpful. Thanks for post this article. 

    1. You’re very welcome, and I hope you will stay tuned for more on the Clickbank University training.    – Babs

  6. Wow!! a lot of information and good information. You can tell your eager to teach people this information or at less show them where to go to be taught, Good job. Keep it up.

  7. I have actually learnt that the Clickbank university is legit and the training are born out of creativity from the two brilliant owners of the platform. However, I will love to know about how extensive the training is as you proceed with it and also how responsive are they to the students on training whenever their attention is needed. This things I asked are important to me. Thanks.

    1. Kenechi, you should subscribe to my site here at Coaching for Internet Marketers.  This way, you will receive an email alert whenever I post a new article.  I will be reviewing the platform as I work my way through it so you can walk through it with me to see if you find it valuable.   – Babs

  8. Thanks for writing this article on click banks university. I keep on reading this article simply because I have been hearing about click banks for sometimes now without knowing what it entails maybe is simply because am new to affiliate marketing. I have been a member of wealthy affiliate for some weeks now and am learning more and more day by day. But I will like to ask can I combine clickbanks university with wealthy affiliate program without compromising any of them

    1. They would work hand in hand, just like Wealthy Affiliate and Amazon or any merchant.  Clickbank sells products, and you would affiliate for them.   – Babs

  9. Thanks for this informative post Babs! I have often wondered what all the fuse was with clickbank.

    I can’t wait to read the rest of your posts as you continue with your training.

    Good luck to you!

    All the Best,
    Jen Smallwood

  10. Having a positive mindset is half the battle in any project,and then you need to know where you are going,so you need to plan, and set goals,and lay down a time line.

    As a Premium Wealthy Affiliate member, we have much training,videos, tutors, a pro-forma website pattern,and backup if we get into problems,I can recommend this way.

    We need to get our services and products. into the customers minds, and an e-mail marketing provider is needed, we just need to check out the cost, so we need to shop around, for the best and most economical provider.

    1. Yes, other people’s minds are definitely part of the equation as well.  You always want to be thinking about your audience.  Who will visit your site, and what do they need?  Great thoughts, Robert!  – Babs

  11. I’ve heard nothing but great things from Clickbank University, but it seems like it’s best to go through the WA program before embarking onto Clickbank. Fortunately, I have my websites plus an email provider, except it’s Mailchimp rather than Aweber, but I still liked what I’ve seen from Aweber as well; just came across Mailchimp first! Being that I like what I’ve heard from Clickbank, I’m willing to give them a shot as well, while keeping up with WA.

    1. If you are new to WA, I would say stick with that for now. Work the program. It’s intensive, so later down the road, you can join the clickbank university. ~ Babs

  12. Hi Babs
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. I’ve only been with WA for 2.5 months and have no prior experience with affiliate marketing. I’m still working through the training here on WA. Is it a good idea to start Clickbank university as well or just stay with WA?

    1. Oh I would say stick with the Wealthy Affiliate for now. You’re going to have your hands full learning all you’ll learn from WA. You can add Clickbank down the road. ~ Babs
