Let me just throw this out and see what your reaction is.
When a launch is in process and affiliates (which by a conservative estimate I will number at 100 for the sake of this example although I'm sure it's closer to 1000) are sending out this swipe email which contains the following line, or something very similar:
so I asked (the person who made the products name) to make ANOTHER free video to not just tell you about it, but to demonstrate it live:
First off, the person sending this email clearly did not ask the marketer to make the video as it was the marketer who came up with the words to use and in most cases, probably never met the affiliate.
Second, this video was already made or planned to be made. The making of it was not a reaction to a personal request as the email implies.
So what is you're take on this. Underhanded? Dishonest, Just part of marketing?
