What is CB Passive Income 5.0?
CB Passive Income 5.0 is a Done-for-You affiliate marketing funnel system created by Patric Chan to help beginners get email list and earn affiliate income with Clickbank.
Patric is a successful internet marketer, starting out in 2003 and has launched many best selling products on ClickBank that includes CB Passive Income.
Other than owning a reputation of a great funnel creator, he is also a bestselling author of WakeUp Millionaire and co-authored a book called Clicking Cash with Robert G. Allen, New York Times best-selling author.
CB Passive Income was ClickBank’s best-selling product for many months the last few years and I won’t be surprise if it will rise again in the first place with the newly launched version 5.0.
It's an extremely simple to use system for a complete newbie to start a legitimate online business. with many big names within the industry also promoting this system.
I believe anyone who has a laptop and internet connection stand equal opportunities to monetize from this system.

How Does CB Passive Income Works?
Despite this simple system has the potential to help- you quit your 9 to 5 job, but you don’t control every part of the business because Patric done all the complex work for you.
This is how the system works
- You are given a set of professionally designed & proven to convert landing pages with high quality freebie to offer your prospects.
- Your job is to send traffic to the secret web pages that has your unique link (I’ll discuss later).
- Once visitors willingly gives their email address in exchange for freebie, they receive continuous emails and offers from Patric Chan on your behalf (in the name of Patric but you gain access to the emails too).
- Your commission will be reflected in your ClickBank account they buy something.
You are only responsible to send traffic to the landing pages. Other jobs are taken care by CB Passive Income 5.0 system.
In short, Patric says “Your webpage builds your list and our marketing system monetize it for you”.
Here’s one example of its landing page.
The best part of this CB Passive Income 5.0 system is that it allows you to focus on mastering traffic strategies rather than building a funnel on your own.
With great traffic skill, you can literally sell anything online to make unlimited amount of money.
Some people are skeptical about this system as you are not in control of many things such as how your list will be used, what offers will be promoted to your subscribers, will each offer genuinely contains your affiliate link and many more.
I suggest if you want to see results from this program, you must be willing to trust the system or should I say the owner.
Personally, I believe reputation of Patric sells. So, it’s up to you whether to give it a try and make it profitable.
This is just a jump-start for you to make money online as beginner. Ultimately, you will advanced into building funnels as well.
At least when you reach that stage, you are already well-versed with driving traffic with a huge list build with CB Passive Income.
What’s New in CB Passive Income 5.0?
With version 5.0, more video training has been added to teach you about online promotions and how to get traffic!
Previously, you are only cloning Patric’s products and webpages, but in version 5.0, you are now able to CLONE an entire proven funnel. This includes…
Your subscribers will not only be sent different offers but also fresh new content and newsletters that bring value to them
Every single email promo sent will carry your ClickBank ID to generate 100% affiliate commission for you.
All the commission earned is yours, without splitting with Patric.

How To Promote “Secret Web Pages”
After you login to the CB Passive Income, you will find an introduction to the program.
You are required to read through the checklist, find out how it works, then follow instructions to setup your account and fill in your ClickBank ID.
Without a Clickbank ID, you cannot monetize from this program. You can create one here.
After these are done, you can get your unique links and start sending traffic to the landing pages.
There are 7 unique links (3 of these are funnel links introduced in version 5.0) at the time when I am writing this review.
- The 5 Minutes Funnel (free funnel system to monetize for you)
- The Book Funnel
- The Evergreen Webinar Funnel
- The Super Affiliate Online Training (great training program)
- The Affiliate Content Profits Offer
- Build and Grow Your List Fast eBook
- Operation Quick Money Training And Software
More links will be added over the time as promised by the Patric.
Inside CB Passive Income 5.0, there are 3 main training to get traffic where members can access for free.
- Solo Advertising
- Bing Ads
- Free Youtube Traffic Training
I love all the training. Despite it's not really step-by-step and sometimes with upsells, but the content is great.
However, you still need to take action by putting in some creativity. Otherwise, nothing is going to happen.
This business is no magic, you still need to learn and work hard.
Once you are done with the training, you can immediately start to get traffic to your unique links. Here are some traffic strategies not taught inside CB Passive Income.
On top of the regular training, when you sign up for CB Passive Income 5.0, you will also receive 3 very powerful Special Launch Bonuses which are NOT free for existing customers.
To let you have some idea, Special Launch Bonuses allow you access to more in-depth training, inner circle club and masterclass with Patric Chan.

Who Is CB Passive Income 5.0 For?
CB Passive Income is suitable for people who are serious to make money online but do not know how to start.
It’s created for beginners who are willing to take action and have some additional funds to buy solo ads, advertise on Bing or willing to spend time creating YouTube videos.
Also suitable for people who are not willing to spend time creating sales funnels and testing tons of landing pages.
Despite it works for more experienced marketers as well, I don’t think they are ready to let Patric take full control of their sales funnel.
Experienced marketers will prefer to design their own funnel, find profitable affiliate products to promote, create own landing pages and autoresponder emails so they have more control over their business.
Good Things About CB Passive Income 5.0
Beginner Friendly: The program is created to help beginners get quicker results. As member of the program, you will only be responsible to drive traffic and get as many email subscribers as possible.
This means you do not have to go through the steep learning curve of finding & hosting a domain, creating sales pages that convert, create autoresponder nor design any sales funnel.
It can never be simpler than this one
High Conversion Rate: The conversion rate is high. I am referring to converting cold traffic to become subscribers.
I managed to get 138 email leads with only 270 unique clicks when it was still a version 3.0. That’s a 50% conversation rate!
When you can increase email leads to 2,000, then you are able to earn more.
In FAQ provided inside member’s dashboard, to make money with this program requires at least 2,000 email subscribers.
I wonder how CBPI managed to become best-selling product on ClickBank when the sales page is not even attractive, in my personal opinion. (somehow or rather I bought too… lol)
The only reason I can think of is the intrinsic knowledge and experience Patric has which nobody can explain, neither can it be cloned easily by other people if they want to build from scratch.
Continuous Upgrades: Since launched in Aug, 2013, CB Passive Income has constantly provides free upgrades to existing customers without the need to pay extra (except for Special Launch Bonuses).
Patric created updated versions of CBPI 2.0 in 2014, CBPI 3.0 in 2015, CBPI 4.0 in 2017 and now CBPI 5.0 in 2018.
More and more training, tools and resources were added over the years.
For example, in CBPI 3.0, Patric added multiple landing pages that converts (read my review here).
And in CBPI 4.0, more mobile features were added, such as the Facebook Click-to-Optin feature.
To know how CB Passive Income evolves over the years, you can find out here.
Patric Adds Value To Existing Customers: As I mentioned earlier, Patric includes 3 Special Launch Bonuses onto his CB Passive Income 5.0.
But it’s not free for existing customers who paid one-time fee to buy earlier version of the program.
You must be asking if it is not free, then why do I like this?
The good news is Patric offers all existing customers a one-time discounted price of $97 to gain access to the Special Launch Bonuses.
If you bought earlier version of CBPI at one-time price of $97 just like me, you can gain access to the Special Launch Bonuses by only paying additional amount of $97.
So your total investment to gain same access to all features inside the new CB Passive Income 5.0 would only add up to $194.
That’s a huge saving of $303 compared to what new customers are paying.
That’s how Patric rewards his existing customers!
So the sooner you become his customer, the better value you can get. Luckily I got mine 3 years ago.
Things I Don't Like
Reduced Control: The truth is, people subscribe to Patric Chan’s list but not yours. And you have minimal control over the list and won't know what's the content delivered to them unless you subscribe to your own list with another email and monitor.
Neither are you able to build a solid relationship with your subscribers in your own brand. If you want to promote anything to your list, I guess the best way is to re-target them using paid advertisement.
That's the only way you can truly make them become your list.
Upsells: Existing members are promised full upgrades but there are many upsells you can find inside CB Passive Income 5.0. Here are the upsells that I found inside member’s dashboard.
Inbox Pro Version
This feature priced at $97 allows you to connect your CB Passive Income account with your autoresponder.
Mass Bot Profits
An automated chatbox to promote digital products on Facebook Messenger. Original price is $197 and existing CB Passive Income customers will get $70 discount with guarantee of no upsells after this one time investment.
- L1nk Track – a link tracking software
- The Mobile Leads Getting Package – a mobile website creator
- WebFire – for traffic automation
The good news is these upsells are not necessary needed to make CB Passive Income system work for you.
So is entirely up to you whether to buy as you can get results without them too.
Price of CB Passive Income 5.0
Setting up a system like CB Passive Income 5.0 on your own would cost around $25,000, requires good funnel strategies and months of work by experienced contractors.
Starting your own business can be expensive, but with this program, your new affiliate marketing business will only cost a one-time fee of $497 or monthly billing of $47.
Not only is there ongoing support once you sign-up to use the program but there is a helpful walk-through to get you started.
If there is anything within the program that you don’t quite understand, you can send support ticket to the team in Client Area.
Is Patric Chan A Sly?
Unlike Adeel Chowdhry who has more than 120k followers on his Facebook, I would say Patric is not so social savvy.
But this doesn’t mean Patric is a sly who hides away from social networks so he could quietly suck the money out from you.
Let’s look at his Facebook activity.
- Page: https://www.facebook.com/patricchanlive/ (around 3k fans)
- Personal FB: https://www.facebook.com/patricchan (around 6,300 followers)
Despite not consistently postings, he is still actively giving free advice through videos (currently he is at episode #49) and sharing his latest business projects.
By looking at the posts in his personal Facebook, one thing I am pretty sure is he dares to speak out and has the charisma to build personal trust.
If a person who dares to speak out and present his true self on his social networks, I do not think he is anyway near to even being called a sly as described by some bloggers who review CB Passive Income program.
Patric Chan’s reputation is a strong reason why you should consider to give it a try. Your subscribers receiving emails from him will improves your chances to get results.
Patric is not a sly, in fact is the REAL DEAL!
In my previous review of his CB Passive Income 3.0, I already mentioned that this is a legit program despite having mixed feelings due to past issues of broken links, insufficient traffic training and some secret web pages rejected by Facebook advertisement.
I would say the current CB Passive Income 5.0 has improved a lot with introduction of new ways to advertise on Facebook and inclusion of 3 additional unique links that cloned his entire sales funnel.
Adding to the credit is the 3 Special Launch Bonuses that can help beginners to effectively get traffic to landing pages. This increases members' chances of success.
This program is very suitable for beginners who are serious to earn money online but not willing to spend time and learn how to:
- do research to find profitable affiliate products;
- create free giveaways, for example ebooks;
- create opt-in landing page; and
- write email autoresponders.
For those who are still not sure about this program, do not worry as there is a 60-day money back guarantee.
You can cancel the program anytime within the guarantee period and get refund with no question asked.
So, you have nothing to lose at all.
Thanks for reading my CB Passive Income Review.
I hope you now can have better understanding on how CB Passive Income 5.0 can help you start your online business.
If you find this review valuable, I hope you can share in your Facebook and Twitter too.
