    Are you for real

    No. No 3% is not worth it.

    What sort of scale is that. How many people buy a $999.99 product? How many people realistically will you be getting to buy that a day? Not many.

    Promote another product on Clickbank that sells for $67 that gives 50% commission. After fees, that is $30. You'll be able to scale that and find a lot more people who'll buy a $67 product than a $999.99 product.

    Stop promoting other people's products!

    You are losing a LOT of money!

    Create your own products, promote them and scale BIG!

    What if you were the company selling those $999.99 products and a ton of affiliates were selling them for you for free? You guessed it, that's where the money is at and that's where you should be focused on!

    With your own business, you don't need to rely on other companies to see if you get paid, or if google/fb/etc go down, you have a business you can easily scale!

    DON'T SET YOURSELF FOR PEANUTS!

    I disagree with that entirely tbh.

    Having your own product is a pathway to a lot of money, but it requires entirely different skills. It also requires you to fulfill orders. I personally have no desire to fulfill orders. I promote high-ticket offers (1.5k-5k) regularly. The people who bank off of me bank off of me hard. But hey. I am not the one having to fulfill those orders. Deal with customer support. I get to fire my bullet, get 50% and leave. It is a truly hands-off business. Having your own products is not a hands-off business.

    I'd rather have less money but a stress-free life.

    I think both of you are truly wise when it comes to IM and I'm glad you guys stopped by to help out a former bhm. I agree with you both. as I was reading rovserpa, Excellent idea! create my own product? and advertise myself? then get others to advertise it for me? so simple but Genius! I cannot believe I did not think of this!?!? BUT not only now do I have to figure out how to get traffic, I now have to find a niche for my new invention. also, now I have to create something!!! and yes not everyone has these skills windmill, but I see potential. the hard part...... creating a product. next hard part.....traffic.

    I like windmills input also. dealing with all of that rovserpa is a day to day 24/7 job. I don't know if I could handle that with my life particularly. so that would be great but a lot to think about. plus, not very much of a money hungry guy. just trying to support one day a family and a awesome house. pet. and maybe one day a lambo for my reward lol

    Not a hassle if you promote digital products. Sure if you promote physical products its a lot of work. Also you should look into outsourcing support. Not wise to take support yourself as when scaling, that makes a problem.

    My product > Others'

    NO, it is not worth it when something is that high priced. Are people really going to buy that? Most likely not.

    Hey mate,

    It depends on how much you wanna earn commission and every affiliate program is a different you see whether it can be physical or digital so ya if you feel that you can earn more while promoting like big budget product than you should try it.

    Hope this helps.
