Month In Review – August 2015

Well, it’s that time, again — where I break down what I did for the month.  Unfortunately, I did not get much done, so there’s not much to report.  Here’s why.  I got all excited at the start of the new month because I heard about a new product that was going to be coming out in my other name niche outside of IM.  As usual, I contacted the product creator in order to get review access (a.k.a. for free).

However, after multiple attempts, I did not get as much as a response back!  Needless to say, I got really irritated.  Some of you might be thinking, “Why didn’t you just buy the product?”  Well, looking back, I should of perhaps done that.  You know what they say.  “Hindsight in 20/20.”  After this experience, though, I’m wondering if I am ever going to promote any of the creator’s products in the future.

The truth is that, while I actually like the person’s products, they don’t really convert that well for me.  I also really, really can’t stand poor customer service.  On the upside, I just learned about a new product that is going to be launching in the internet marketing niche pretty soon.  Even though I’ve been craving something new, I don’t know if I am actually going to be promoting it.

While I heard some good things about the person in the past, I haven’t actually tried any of his stuff.  It was also during a time when he had a business partner from whom he has since split.  I’m also kind of worried because, when I look at the JV page, it has all these stipulations about how you can promote it.  I hate that.  If a product is of high quality, you shouldn’t have to worry about that, IMO.

I’m sure it’s going to be one of those products, where I have to come out of my own pocket in order to review it.  A lot of heavy hitters in the IM sector don’t like giving you review access to stuff — unless they know how you are going to promote it.  The product creator also has to manually approve every affiliate, so I think I’m going to just wait to buy it when it comes out.

If the product is good, then I can ask to be an affiliate.  If it’s not, I can at least make the most of the traffic and recommend something legitimate.  We’ll just have to wait and see what happens with it.  It’s still a little while away.  Well, that’s all from this neck-of-the-woods.

Until next time…
