The email tactic I'm talking about is one I have noticed Frank Kern using time and time again.
His approach is pretty much to tell you about a certain product launch that he is an affiliate for and then state that you shouldn't buy the product mentioned through his affiliate link that he has placed in his email (both at the top and bottom of the message) as you won't be receiving a bonus like you would if you bought through someone elses' affiliate link.
I'm not sure how effective this tactic has actually been in generating sales of these affiliate promotions for Frank but his approach is one that I am very interested in. It instills a sense of trust in the product in question as he is basically saying "...even if I don't earn any money from this sale, you should still get the product". That's quite powerful!
It may just be that he doesn't expect anyone to buy through his link because of what he is telling them but I wonder how many people actually have done and foregone the bonus they would have got from someone else?
Personally, I beleive that this tactic does work in terms of helping to make sales (or at least I want it to work as it has impressed me) however I have absolutely no proof of this. If you've tried this tactic out for yourselves, or you know someone that has (Frank Kern for example) then I'm really interested to find out what the success rate of using this tactic is?
Does it work or is it simply that Frank isn't interested in making the sale, just in informing his list of a good product?
PS - If you haven't heard of this tactic before, I hope you stick around and listen to the facts the Warrior Forum members will put forward here. If it works, look into using it for yourselves.
