Another way to address this is, early on in the conversation, ask who did the ad or promotion? Ask whether they like it? You'd be surprised, many don't like what the other guy did and will tell you....

Re: Where can I find good content writers?

Re: A few useful tips for wso buyers

Buy from people with a track record on WF. Buy from people who tend to specialize in a niche topic, not ones who produce WSOS on every topic. Just my thoughts to add.

Re: Do you still love Amazon with half commissions?

You have to be kidding?!! Amazon, who offered very small commissions, has cut them even more? I am so glad I never wasted time with them. I wonder if anyone makes any money with Amazon.

Re: What Is A Typical Clickbank Refund Rate Nowadays?

My experience in selling an investor trading product was it was higher than normal.
Also it was cheap, not a $20 type product, but almost $100, so that may have affected it too.

Re: I lost a decent passive income stream. Do I care? Nope.

For sure thats a good attitude, but it's just one more reason to avoid Adsense imo. So much at risk, if you build it up, and all it takes is one mistake, and Google can take it all away.
