Smells a bit fishy...

9 replies
..Nope... not my wifes chicken madras (this time).

I've been approached by a marketer who wants to sell one of my products as an affiliate.

He has refused to use Clickbank or any other normal affiliate system, and has asked me to upload my entire course to his web server.

I'm not sure what to do, he is throwing around some big numbers of the potential sales, into the tens of thousands.

What would you do? Is this a standard way to run a JV?

      You would just be giving your product away.

      How do you know how many sales he makes without access to his server?

    Ask him to start with CB in the first instance. If the numbers are looking as good as he promises then give him the opportunity to while label (or what ever it is he wants).

    Cheers,

    WOW OK!

    Thanks guys! You may have just saved my product.

    His name isn't John.

    I searched for the marketer in question and Google brought me to his Warrior forum profile. So one good thing came from this, I found this forum.

    My grandad used to say to me "If it looks too good to be true then it is"

    I always use this maxim when considering any venture!
