Don't be a sell out!
So I got a little excited at the start of the week, when I found an E-Book while I was just randomly trawling the internet. The sales pitch was fantastic, a quick search and yes they have an affiliate program, and it pays 50% commission - WINNER!
Not only that they have a compete refund if you don't like the book, plus 3 additional bonus books and from the sales pitch it looks to fit my niche market brilliantly and is along the same lines as I teach - WINNER!
So I bought the book but didn't have time to start reading it, had to sign up as an affiliate to Clickbank, to which I was originally denied but after a bit of messing around got approved. I'm ready to sell.
On my flight to the city yesterday I started reading the book so I could write a killer review, this is going to be my #1 recommendation, take pride of place on the top menu and make me a killing over many years to come - WRONG!
The sales pitch and the actual content are poles apart. The methods for handling horses are archaic and bordering on cruel.
When the first page advises you need your horse to fear you first and to cause pain by whipping the horse I knew I was done and could not promote the book in any way, shape or form.
What's the message?
Do your homework first don't go blindly rushing ahead.
Keep your integrity and don't sell out for the chance to make a sale. Believe in the products you promote so you can hold your head high and know that you genuinely help people. Don't be a sell out for the $$?
