Question about offering 100% commission

by Ron Douglas 17 replies
Why would anyone in the IM niche pay for your product if they can just signup as an affiliate, buy the product, and get 100% commission? Wouldn't lots of savvy unethical webmasters be able to get your product for free without even promoting it?

Am I missing something?

    Because you cannot buy from yourself through PayPal.

    I always though 100% commisions were for getting a big list quick too and to sign on some affiliates who like you

    I'd recommend R.A.P. for this as you can configure it.
    Also, if you're giving %100 commission then obviously your main goal isn't to make money off the sale anyway so you may want to re-think your plan if you're worried about losing money on a %100 product.

    You also have to remember that not all IMers are at the same level. I've seen lots of times where someone could of used their own affiliate link to get a discount but simply didn't think of it or they forgot to do it.

      Yes, I already have RAP, but thanks for the suggestion.

      I'm not worried about losing money on the 100% product, I just don't want people getting it for free with no intention of promoting it.

      The primary goal is to build my list but I don't think I have to rethink my plan for making money. The direct sales and the upsell should bring in money. The 100% commission is an incentive to buy if I set it up like John suggested.
