The number one thing I see most new product owners do is exclaim their commssion percentage like it's big news...
Commission MEANS NOTHING IF THE PRODUCT DOESN'T CONVERT!
I can't tell you how many times people email me asking for JVs or Product Launch info with 75% this end, 50% back end, 60% this, 30% that...
75% of a product that doesn't sell means no money.
ADVERTISE YOUR CONVERSION RATES!
Most affiliates simply don't have the time or will to read through your entire copy and send test traffic to see if your product even converts.
If you don't have conversion information in the IM niche, then why are you selling an IM product?
Want to know a secret? This is the same reason that the biggest affiliates are no where near clickbank (circumstances apply), they are at CPA networks.
Why? Because they can see real conversion data, and talk to REAL affiliate managers who will show them what is SELLING and what is NOT. No lousy promos, no ridiculous bonus offers just to get a few sales, just raw data and real money.
Something to keep in mind...
