Order In Which I Research a Product

The first place I usually stop off at in my research is the JV notice itself. I go from there to the product's sales promotional materials. If the product is still in pre-launch, I do the best I can to dig up the website, even if it's not published yet. Sometimes I am able to get into the "Index of" page with the file list below.

Finding what's in the advertising before a product gets launched gives a ton of stuff about the product away!

  • Hype
  • Fake Testimonials
  • Lies

Whilst it's easy to discount such things after a product has been launched, they sure stick out like sore thumbs when they're not launched yet!

I then go to other reviews, especially customer reviews, complaint boards, scam review sites (careful here!,) and even the news.

Be Careful Researching Product Adverts

Finding yourself face-to-face with hyped-up advertising, those that plaster you with exotic scenes are almost always indicative of an inferior product.

On the other hand, not all "honest" advertising indicates a good product! On the contrary, I've stumbled into a JV invite page with swipe emails (vendor-supplied email formats for affiliate use in promotions.) There were two batches of "honest" emails and what they call, "HypeSwipes." I kid you not!

Care must be taken in this regard as it can really throw you off just as it does the consumers who read them!

JV Announcements

One of your best friends whether good or bad, are the JV invite pages! Now these are the gateway pages where you enroll into the affiliate program for the product. Chances are, if you've joined affiliate programs, you may have seen these already. They can be quite revealing!

Many of the Clicksure JV invite pages are as bad as the actual product promotion itself! This is how they entice affiliates into the program. This is why you find many of those bogus reviews out there!

If you get into one of these that promises great windfalls of money, advertises promotional contests but has very little to nothing to say about the product itself, a red flag should go up!

The point is here, the advertising can spill the beans about the quality of a program and to such where you sometimes don't even need to go any further that it and the sales promotion! I find this especially true with products found hosted by Clicksure. (more on Clicksure later.)

Good stuff. Digital products are something I have considered for a while. I may take a closer look now.
It's even better to have a mix. Right now that's all I'm doing, but I really need to beef up other means of online marketing, physical products, product creation and promotion of these and local marketing. I've touched on these, but need to give them a try again.

That makes sense. I plan to have a look at Clickbank and some of the others to see if there are any products that compliment what I am selling, although that is going to be some time away yet. I am building a large authority type site so the more stuff I have on there the better it should prove for ranking purposes.
