1) Would I be correct to assume that if I put my product on Clickbank and did no self promotion it wouldn't make any sales, or would affiliates eventually find it themselves?
2) I've been told that affiliates will not promote my product unless I show them proof of it's conversions, do you find this to be true?
If so, what would be a simple approach to getting these conversion statistics in a timely fashion?
As an affiliate myself I've never looked for proof of prior conversions, I normally make my decision based on my view of the sales copy.
3) I understand that doing both would be the best option, but in your experience which would be the simplest approach to selling my product, Clickbank, WSO, or other?
4) Do you have any advice for a new product owner about ways to approach product promotion and getting affiliates involved?
Any and all advice would be appreciated.
