    Would there be a demand for a high commission affiliate program that would pay out bi weekly at 30% giving £22.50 GBP (that's approx $37 USD) per sign up.

    The product costs £75 GBP and is an online digital personal training platform: http://goo.gl/vurqob

    Sales are going great at around 2 - 4 signups a day with minimal marketing, just organic growth. However we'd like to reward others who think they can drive sales to the business, and offering this out to the affiliate networks?

    Would this be something people are interested in pursuing?

    Same niche products have 60-75% payout on clickbank . So you would want to compete with them if you want affiliates to promote your product .
    Higher payout to affiliates would be countered by increase in sales volume .

    The normal comission for affiliates on this type of product is 75%.

    Its very unlikely you will find good affilates to work for less.

    If your product is good, Affiliates will compete against each other, every corner of the market will be covered, So your sales will go through the roof.

    So you must decide whether you want 25% of a very big pie, or a large % of a very very small pie.

    If you study CB vendors, you will find the most successful all offer 75%.

    These types of Products on CB have a short to medium life span, before somebody replicates them.

    Another advantage of getting more affiliates, is you can build a large list to sell other products too,
    If your a proven vendor, its much easier to get affiliates for other products.

    Another thing to consider is the price of your product, Higher priced products are harder to convert, even with a money back guarantee, plus they also get a higher refunds,

    Refunds hurt the affiiates reputation and also his earnings.

    I wish you luck with your product, but these things should be taken into account by anybody considering being a product vendor.
    Finally I don't see who is running your AFF Program, Again this is a black mark against you
    People may complain about CB, But in general they have built a very trustworthy reputation

    Thanks for your advice. I've been in the sports nutrition manufacturing and retail industries for over 17 years in the UK and USA...there is NO WAY you can manufacture a product, selling it at $40 and give 75% commission away....it's impossible unless the contents of the product was and is B***S*T...the cost to manufacture high quality effective sports nutrition products, like mine, which have been on sale globally for over 4 years ... if I could make 75% profit margin I would have retired ten times over and live on a beach in Hawaii lol

    From this, I can either conclude, we're talking a different language about what my product is, or there's a whole boatload of S**T on sale at Clickbank duping consumers...which is a real shame!

    I also thought ClickBank was for digital products, not tangible goods. My product is a herbal dietary weight loss nutritional product in capsules.
