I have had decent success with this, but not at the level others have had.
A buddy of mine recently did a WSO that generated sales in the five-figures in his first week, and that was powered to a great extent by the affiliates who had signed up to sell the product.
In my buddy's case, it worked out well, because his WSO was promoted to thousands of people through trusted email lists.
From the perspective of the Affiliate Vendor, it is a technique that offers real potential to the vendor for enhancing product sales.
While most Affiliate Sellers are happy to have the opportunity to make money selling someone else's product, the Affiliate Vendor has to be aware of some Affiliate Sellers will not always have the sellers' best interests in mind.
Fortunately, with Warrior Plus for sure, all Vendors have the option to manually approve Sellers.
Your first impression might tell you that you should approve anyone who wants to sell your products, via the affiliate programs available, but let me advise you to investigate all applicants prior to giving that approval.
There was a time when one person wanted to be able to sell my products via the Warrior Plus affiliate program, but that same person was trashing my product in public...
Is that a person I really want promoting my products? Absolutely not.
And that person will never be permitted to sell my products, so long as I have a say in the matter, because if that person would trash one product unread, what good would that person offer to a future product of mine?
In my case, it was clearly a situation of the person wanting to sell my product because that person only saw the potential to earn money on my product, with little concern to that person's audience. After all, if the person was concerned with his or her audience, why would they consider selling a product that they thought was crap? LOL
The Affiliate angle to WSO offers is an awesome development for product sellers.
With the Warrior Plus system, you also have the option to set certain sellers to a different commission structure, based on your own personal choice to do so.
That is a huge advantage when you have the option to give someone the ability to get a better deal that other affiliates.
Take for example my 20-minute article writing product. If Chris Knight were to come to me and said that he wanted to sell my product via EZA (only as an example), I might consider paying him a higher percentage than everyone else, because he has an audience reaching millions of more people than I can reach without him.
That is an option available to all Affiliate Vendors in the Warrior Plus system, and it may be a fantastic incentive to get the right people into your affiliate program.
Personally, I love Warrior Plus, but the rise of DigiResults may give Mike incentive to make more upgrades to his system much sooner than he had originally planned.
If you have used any of the third-party affiliate programs for WSO-offers, please speak up.
I want to hear about the pro's and con's of the methodology in general.
I want to hear about the bumps in the road, and the things to watch out for.
I want to hear about what you have done to strengthen the sales that your affiliates have been able to produce for you.
I want to hear about how you have recruited affiliate sellers to sell your products.
Let's get this ball rolling...
