Tools & Resources We Use To Make Money
If you’ve ever had more than 1 car in your lifetime, you’ll know that all cars ARE NOT made equally.
There’s a HUGE difference between a Kia and a BMW. The Kia’s engine might sound like a lawnmower when it accelerates, and the BMW like a black panther when it purrs.
The Kia probably has some kind of cloth interior and cheaply finished dash board with maybe an A Track or a CD player if you’re lucky. And the BMW? It will have all black leather interior with either woodgrain or carbon fiber dashboard, GPS, Bluetooth, panoramic moonroof, glass ceilings, and any other bells and whistles you can think of.
Because the BMW is a luxury vehicle.
Just like your blog will be after you finish purchasing all of the tools below.
We are not here to show you how to build some rinky dink blog that crumbles under the slightest influx of traffic. No.
We are here to show you how to build the sexiest damn blog, website or business you could possibly imagine. And therefore, we don’t use cheap parts. Get it?
At Digital Bankroll, we don’t build Kia’s. We build BMW’s.

Affiliate Networks & Merchant Processing
Clickbank – The worlds largest retailer of digitally distributed goods. Clickbank is a great place for intermediate to advanced marketers to list their products for sale. Yes, you do have to have your own product to be a vendor over at Clickbank, however you can also be an affiliate, and sell other peoples products for very hefty commissions. Often times between 50% and 75%. We also list some of our products on the CB marketplace because they are great for handling your merchant processing, your affiliates and your customer service for you.
JV Zoo – This is an affiliate network that pays instant commissions via PayPal. Kind of like taking a PayPal payment except with more leverage than your average PayPal button. With JV Zoo, you have access to an affiliate network, and therefore the power of other product owners and super affiliates sending your traffic in exchange for commissions. Very attractive to the brand new and beginner internet marketer who needs money like yesterday!
PayPal – The payment processor everyone should have online. This is where you will likely receive your first commissions online. It’s the fastest, easiest and most trusted way to get paid online. I receive thousands of dollars in PayPal commissions each and every single month from various different affiliate accounts, and you can too. But it all starts with signing up for an account and being able to accept transactions.
