Introduction to CB Passive Income 3.0

I am continuously trying new things to offer better money making opportunities for the unemployed who  are often faced with difficulties due to limited resources.

One of the many programs I tried over the course of the last few months was the CB Passive Income 3.0 and I decided to do a honest review on this program.

Here’s the proof that I’ve made my purchase.

CB Passive proof

In short, CB Passive Income is an affiliate marketing system that promises to bring you more cash in a simpler way.

Created by Patric Chan, CB Passive Income 3.0 teaches you how to generate traffic to different “Secret Web Pages” (various opt-in landing pages) so that you are able to build a profitable email list.

Subsequently Patric will promote various offers to your subscriber list with your ClickBank ID so that once the sale is secure, you will earn a commission.

Patric literally creates for you professionally designed landing pages that can build subscriber list, offer affiliate products that are proven to convert and continue to provide valuable knowledge to your subscribers in his name by sending them emails.

In short, you DO NOT need to…

  • find affiliate products that can convert well (learn how to start affiliate marketing here)
  • create your own autoresponder emails (refer to AWeber video at bottom of this post)
  • use tool like ProfitBuilder to create various opt-in landing pages
  • buy tool like Sqribble to create professionally design ebooks to give away for free
  • pay for traffic training as it is included in the program (find out more here)



Here is one video on how you can repeatedly promote various offers or products to the same email list.

This method is used in CB Passive Income License Program 3.0 too.


This is an unique link of Operation Quick Money Training & Software in CB Passive Income 3.0 that I promoted by buying solo ads from 3 different sellers.

It has generated 126 leads for myself and Patric Chan (as he has access to my list too).

My total investment to profit from CB Passive Income 3.0 includes $126 to buy solo ads and $97 for the program.

I’ve been doing this trial and error with 3 solo ads seller but did not generate any sale (in his FAQ, he mentioned that we need to have at least 2,500 leads to generate $500 monthly income).

My Solo Ads Purchased

Other than buying solo ads, I also try to advertise via Facebook.

However, Facebook rejected my application to advertise with the reason that the ads and link contain information like quick money, etc.

Guess I have to start promoting other “Secret Web Pages” using Facebook Ads.

In this program, you are required to build own list using “secret web pages”. To think about it, how would you even drive traffic to your squeeze page if you are a newbie?

No doubt, there are some tips and traffic training provided in this program, but to optimize results, rapid testing is required so you won't spend too much money on advertisement that does not convert.

This is a huge challenge for a newbie.

Now, it is either you have a lot of time to build your free traffic through social networks or money to invest in paid advertisement.

Basically, other than gaining some knowledge on traffic and access to professionally design affiliate marketing system, most of my investment goes to Patric Chan – the investment of $97 for purchasing his system and the $126 for buying solo ads (he got hold of my leads too).

I guess this is a trade-off to share his years of knowledge & experience gained through hard work.

To me, money invested is not the real issue but it’s the time that I’ve spent on understanding this system that matter most.

What do you get?

With CB Passive Income 3.0, you get few professionally design landing pages that you can use to grow your email list.

On top of that, this program also offers you with traffic lessons to start your online business, primarily to drive traffic to these landing pages.

Once you have your list, Patric will send product offers that contain your affiliate links to your subscribers so you can earn affiliate commission when they buy something.

It is just as simple as this…. but it took me some time to understand the system.

The Good

  • There is a 14 day trial that you can get for only $1 if you opt to pay monthly at $37 / month
  • Sixty days money back guarantee
  • Ready made landing pages with promises to add more over the time
  • You get affiliate commission if a sale is made (not sure if Patric gets the money too)
  • 3 special bonuses, #1 The Digital Cover Creator, #2 The Traffic From Google Home Course and #3 The Email Assassin Home Course
  • The truth is creating a list to send offers is a legitimate and proven method to make money online

The Bad

  • You may be paying to generate leads for Patric too
  • Sales video hype showing CB Passive Income 3.0 is too easy which in fact is not
  • No control over offers that are sent to your list
  • No control over content of your squeeze page
  • Support center is not 24/7

My Verdict

I have mixed feelings about this program.

I think this program is legit and you can earn some money from it.

But being a newbie, the amount of time and money invested might not be able to yield immediate results.

Furthermore, I think this program needs more improvement as I’ve encountered few issues with broken links.

No doubt, their support team managed to get things right quickly but I feel that I have become the “guinea pig who pay” for them to improve their system.

The last time I signed into this system, Patric has indeed made improvement to the training and increases number of unique links or secret web pages.

This indeed proved that he is genuine to provide value to his customers.

Well, no system is perfect in this world.

If the pros of this program sound ok to you then I suggest you to give it a try.

At this point of time, I will just try to learn more traffic techniques from Patric and promote CB Passive Income 3.0 as much as possible.

I've tried to promote the secret pages via Twitter and it works for me. If you are interested, here are some tips on Twitter Marketing.

In my personal opinion, this system is definitely suitable for beginners to affiliate marketing.

And I highly encourage those who are willing to invest money to generate leads (building free traffic is too time-consuming) or want to leverage on Patric Chan’s expertise to join this program.

I do not think any experienced marketer would need this system as the success of CB Passive Income 3.0 is only depending on its founder Patric Chan alone.

If one is experienced enough, he or she will be able to find profitable affiliate products, build own landing pages and create email autoresponder to monetize online – without the need to rely on Patric Chan.

For newbies who prefer to have more control over your online business, I would highly recommend you to join Wealthy Affiliate, an awesome community that helped me build my online business as a complete beginner.

I hope with this, you are able to have better understanding on how CB Passive Income 3.0 works. If you have any questions or experience that you would like to share, please do leave me a comment below.

I would love to hear from you!

  1. Wow. Do you sleep at all. Your website is awesome. Well presented and articulate. Its sound like your experience with CB Passive wasn’t to bad but it wasn’t 100%. You write a very good review. Its hard to believe you did this all on your own. Good work. “Time is not short, Only life is”

    • Hi Stephen,

      Lol… of course I sleep. Just that WA is so intriguing that I often sacrifice my sleep. Well, I am still exploring and working on CB Passive Income. Invested and must get some return. If others can make it, I am sure I can too. I will be posting more tips about building business online. Hope to see you again.

  2. Well when I landed on this page I was more or less convinced it was going to be a complete waste of time. The title of passive income usually highlights the fact the program is a scam…but not here apparently!
    You say it is aimed at newbies – does clickbank take on newbies or do you have to sign up some sort of test?

    • Yes, I always see CB Passive Income 3.0 as something like a scam. But seriously, I am not sure. ClickBank does approve newbies in their affiliate program. However if there’s no sale for certain period of them, they will deduct $1 from your account every month if there’s a balance in it.

  3. Hi Florence, you have a nice site with very helpful information, liked this review and the way you are providing details even on the negative side. you did it very well as a pro of cos. There are a lot of programs but the problem some people are not telling the truth at the beginning then you discover the real truth once you are in, which is not a good thing.

    • I am now very cautious when buying program online. That’s why it took me 6 months before deciding to join Wealthy Affiliate and start learning how to really build a sustainable business online. Luckily my investment this round is giving me return…lol

  4. Hi florence
    i found your site by accident but thankfully i did i have been reading and researching about wa.It looks like a great idea but i have never built a website before is it a long process to learn and implement as i am very low on money and would like to do some thing like this but what I’m worried about is that i start and my money runs out and can not get far enough in to start earning what are your thoughts ?

    • Hi Jimmi, guess I missed out your comment. Apologize for this. In fact building a website is simple. There are more to invest if you really want to create a sustainable business online. It is just like brick and mortar business. The difference is there is less cost involved and you are free to target whatever market you want. Hope this answer your question.

  5. Hi there, I just checked out your site and I think that it is great, and you have done a wonderful job at being honest about it. Before I found wealthy affiliate, I use to search for money making programs like this one. But I’m glad I didn’t find it because without the review you’ve done on it, I think that I would have wasted valuable time with no reward to look forward to. I think that you’ve helped a lot people (including me) with this website, so hats off to you! Did you come across this online program before or after wealthy affiliate? I’m just wondering. Well thanks for this awesome review, you’ve really done a great job!

    • Hi Retha, I am just like many people out there buying all sorts of IM programs before landing with Wealthy Affiliate. Yes, I purchased CB Passive Income 3.0 and found out it may not be something that I want to do. That’s how I can write this review. Hope you enjoy your learning in WA. Let me know if you need any help. Cheers!

  8. HI there,

    I am fully aware of CB passive income and Patric Chan was actually interested in his product until I seen this review.

    Listening to his video is enough for me. He claims to be Malaysian. I visit Malaysia a LOT, and he certainly does not sound Malaysian to me.

    Your review, actually swings it for me. Better to be avoided.

    • Well he is in fact a Malaysian and I met him personally but never attend any of his paid workshop. I am not sure whether CB Passive Income 3.0 can really generate income but I can only say that they are frequently improving their system.

  9. thank the grace god have given you honestly such informative articles are rare and in most cases its rare for one to come up with such a great article that is making people itching with happiness in them

    thanks for this teaching post and hesitate nothing to share more again please i request
