came across a disturbing Clickbank discussion today…
turns out, some bad CB publishers are installing spyware on the computers of potential customers of their affiliates and then using them to redirect sales away from the affiliate so they don’t have to pay out.
this isn’t the first i’ve seen this happen either.
CPA publishers also, who pay on a “per lead” basis…particularly with big affiliates always try to avoid paying fairly earned commissions.
they use excuses like “scrubbing” and filtering leads they don’t like for whatever reason to save money.
this is why i’m so against affiliate marketing.
you’re under the mercy of the publisher, as if you’re their employee. they decide when and if they pay you.
if their product flops and they go under, you get nothing.
they impose unfair rules, like where you can market, how you can market, and where only they are allowed to exclusively advertise.
some publishers will actually spy on their top affiliate’s campaigns, capture all the keywords that produce sales and then directly compete with them or kick them off the program.
the worst part is, as an affiliate, you don’t own the core product you sell, so you can lose your income overnight without warning. and the leads YOU worked to get won’t know who you are if you want to sell them something different.
what’s the solution?
don’t depend on affiliate sales for your primary income. affiliate programs should always be SECONDARY products.
don’t send traffic directly to affiliate links…build your own list and then market products to them. you’ll convert less customers, but you’ll have the chance to follow-up indefinitely with as many products as you like.
