Hi Steve,

75% seems generous at first glance but it makes total sense. As you mentioned, you have little competition and the ease of a re-sell trumps trying to prospect for new sales. It pays to pay 🙂

Helpful affiliate insight here, thanks for sharing.

75% seems like a lot, but it isn’t, you can have 20-30 affiliates out there hustling for you. They are doing most of the work, so they deserve most of the profits. 25% of so many peoples effort can be quite significant. Plus you have the back end which I have yet to discuss…. (aren’t I a tease)

This is helpful information. I will definitely need to review your other lessons.

I like idea of offering 75% commission, because you’re more likely to gain affiliates than someone offering 30% commission. That’s a smart way of conducting business.

Thanks for sharing!

Take care,

Evelyn

It really is fair, affiliates do the bulk of the “work” to keep your product going and they deserve most of the profits. Having done it from both sides it really is a symbiotic win-win situation.

Hi Steve, I’ve heard a lot of good things about Clickbank. That’s good to know that it’s better to have more affiliates even if they are small for Gravity points. As you point out, you won’t make a sale if you don’t solve the customer’s problem though.

Steve Scott

Just to clarify: Gravity is for the product. Having a high Gravity means the product has sold a fair amount of copies. This high gravity can attract the affiliates who are able to be reasonably sure the product will sell.

There is actually an affiliate marketer theory a few (really not too many) use that can be good too. Since a high gravity often means that there are more people SELLING the product too some AM’s search for low gravity items to promote.

This can get a product with little competition. The idea is to find a good product that the SELLER, though he has a solid product, has screwed up landing page, promotion, etc. Then work with the seller to fix his stuff and make it work.

This gives the AM a product that hopefully will sell with little or no competition.

That is something I am not sure I would actually attempt though….an AM who does that has to really know his stuff.

Isn’t this a chicken and egg issue? You can’t have a high Clickbank rating unless you are selling a lot, but you can’t sell a lot unless you got a high Clickbank rating… I know you recommend actively recruiting affiliates, but that is kinda tough. As an affiliate myself, I always ask companies that try to recruit me what their track record is.. how many visitors are already visiting their website. Because I know how tough it is to promote a product that almost noone has heard of before.

Steve Scott

These are all great questions. Actually I’ll be covering this two weeks from now. The short answer is you create relationships with a couple of other product owners by promoting their stuff. Usually they’ll be more than happy to return the favor. Don’t worry…I’ll go into much more detail about this when I write up week 13 in this course.

Great information, Steve. Most of the e-book tutorials I have seen focus on creating the material and then wish you luck with sales.

I am not surprised to hear there is so much work left to be done after the e-book is written. I am looking forward to your upcoming posts on how to build an affiliate base.
