The Three Secrets of Selecting an Awesome Profitable Affiliate Offer
There is one thing super affiliates do differently than anyone else: they know how to select an awesome affiliate offer to sell.
You see, selecting the wrong affiliate offer can doom your entire business destroying your reputation. How many subscribers will still trust you if you recommend a shoddy product or a scamming vendor? If You said none, your are exactly right. That’s why you’ll want to protect your reputation and your business by only promoting high-quality products put out by reputable vendors.
Here’s how to do it…
Review the Product
It does not matter if every other affiliate in the niche is raving about the product. It doesn’t matter if you have to buy the product yourself (hey, it’s tax deductible in most places). It doesn’t matter if the sales page is as slick as a whistle and the commissions are out of this world…
Simply put, You never recommend it if you haven’t first reviewed and or used the product.
See, here’s the thing…
Keep in mind that all those affiliates raving about the product may not have used the product either. All they are looking for something profitable to promote. So if you simply follow the herd, they may just lead you off a cliff.
Let's just say that the product actually turns out to be complete junk. What would that do to your reputation if you recommend the product to your readers? That’s right, they may never trust you again after you hype up a pile of junk for days.
It’s not worth it to promote a big-commission product if it turns out to be junk. You may get a pile of cash today, but you’ll be hard pressed to ever sell anything to your list again. So the only products you should be recommending are those you would recommend to a family member or your best friend.
So, what to do next…
Check Out the Sales Page
The vast majority of product vendors want to do everything they can to make sure their affiliates are happy. But then there is this minority of vendors who are sneaky as heck. These guys are so shady they would steal commissions from their own mother. And that is one of the main reasons why you need to watch your back. After all, if they would steal from you, just imagine how they would treat your customers.
So what you should do first is check out the sales page and order form. Go through every link you possible can. Go through the entire process. Watch for these things:
So in short, look for anything that could stifle sales or hijack your commissions.
Research the Vendor
The product looks great, the sales page looks good. Now is it time to promote?
Now it is time to research the vendor if you have never promoted for them before. Be sure how the vendor is going to treat your customers (and you) . So drop his name into your favorite search engine and do some research. Look for patterns of complaints such as:
Just look for anything that might suggest your vendor may try to rip off you or your customers – and if you see even one tiny red flag, move on.
Here is the Bottom Line...

Now this may all seem like common sense, but everyday many affiliates overlook these steps simply because their focus is more on sending affiliate link after affiliate in an attempt to make a $. In fact, there are a whole lot of steps many aspiring affiliates overlook when they are setting up their business – and then they wonder why they can’t seem to sell more than one or two products a month.
