I am sure you know the story of the emperors new clothes (if you dont’ you’ll find the details on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Emperor’s_New_Clothes)
Everytime I see one of these new style “4 videos, leave a comment below” product launches I can’t help but think of this story.
You see the thing about these launches is as soon as you see the first video you know the product is going to cost $1997. At that price point the vendor basicaly gets $1000 and the Affiliate gets $1000.
I have no problems whatsoever with affiliates making money what i do object to is affiliates promoting a product without ever having seen it.
However that isn’t the worst problem with these types of launches…The big problem is that the products don’t really teach anything new. It’s just rehased products with a fancy new set of clothes. Worst of all is the fact that the people who create them don’t care about the people who buy them.
The whole product is just aimed at generating income and cash for the vendor and affilaites
What most people don’t realize is that there are huge prizes available to the affiliate who sell the most number of copies…
Below is the list of the top 10 prizes from a recent launch
1) $100,000 cash
2) $50,000 cash
3) $25,000 cash
4) $12,500 cash
5) $6,250 cash
6) 17″ MacBook Pro
7) 15″ MacBook Pro
8 ) MacBook Air
9 ) 13″ MacBook Pro
10) iPad 64GB+3G
Do you really think that anyone who promoted the product, and it’s the same people promoting every time, really took anytime to think about whether the product was a good deal for their lists?
I seriously doubt it…
You don’t need to support these guys, if you get an email promoting one of these products unsubscribe from the list, if everyone did that we’d soon get some sanity back into the IM market and some products worth the money being charged for them.
Finally before I get back to work… there are only 7 places available for the october seminar in Las vegas. If you want to know how to create and promote products that actually have value come along.
You can see details at http://beyondcommissionlive.com/us-las-vegas . Come along it could be the best decision you’ve every made….or you could save the money for the next crap product launch!!
