    I'm on the opposite end of the table from you guys, I'm looking to create an info product in a niche that should move units. To be honest, it's been kicking around in my dome since 2012, at this point I feel obligated to make it reality.

    I'm here to ask you, the pros of affiliate marketing, what are your favorite affiliate networks and why? Who treats you right? What do you love about your favorite network? Who do you avoid like the plague?

    It won't do me any good to offer my product through a network that rips you guys off. I've learned a lot by lurking here, and I figure picking the best networks for my products and giving you guys first dibs would be the best way I can pay back the community here.


    Also: I've got someone hitting me up about potentially creating a monthly crate service. What network is good for subscription rev-share?

    My favorite is Amazon.

    Why? It makes me a lot of money and I haven't used another network yet. :)

    Do info products sell well on Amazon? I really don't want to bother with physical books or DVD's

    Kindle is the way to go, you can get your book made up in Kindle format on fiverr

    Guess it depends on the niche of the product.

    I'll have to figure out a way to get the companion videos to the kindle buyers.

    My niche is going to be music business related. Like a "How to git gud at the music business for dummies" kind of things. I'll be spending a lot of time on basic life/man skills, and novel self promotion methods that have only been seen in the Texas country music scene.

    You have just given me an idea, why not have a membership only site ( Easily done with wordpress ) and add a link in the kindle book, you buyers can then login to your membership only site and watch the vids, while they are there you can make other recommendations etc and sell more related products

    That's a neat idea. The reverse of that model (free site with premium content) is a proven winner. I'm definitely going to shill for people here in my content. I don't want to spend too much of my life on this, I kinda want to get it out of my dome and move on with my life, but I know I'm going to need something where I can answer questions about the content, post updated material and the like time to time.

    Good luck with that, once you set everything up it should run itself as Amazon handle delivery for the book and membership sites are easy to run. As members have to sign up you can also build a good list, get a autoresponder etc to monetize even more. Maybe once you have a solid base then list it on flippa and rake it in.

    Ya, the man skills section should actually allow me to make good cash on amazon referrals. Most parents do a piss poor job of making sure their kids are actually ready for life. But, having the knowledge isn't enough, you need the physical tools as well. Then there's the software tools, which you guys are the kings of.

    Thanks a lot. You got me thinking of some new directions I can take this whole thing.
