Affiliate Marketing Lie #4 – You always get your commissionsJul 26
Are you toying with affiliate marketing for your nice?
If so, do you know the number one way that you'll *never* get your commissions?
It's easy! It's when people steal your commission from you.
Think about your typical affiliate link
If it's clickbank, it might be something like http://richhermit.lingstar.hop.clickbank.net .
Immediately, a link like that shows your visitor that Hey! This is a Clickbank product! I can log into clickbank on my own volition, grab the affiliate link, and *buy* it through my affiliate link!
Another lie about getting affiliate commissions is when they're run by unscrupulous affiliate managers, who just somehow *forget* you're entitled to the monthly checks.
Alas, it does happen.
One way, of course, to prevent affiliate commission theft is to cloak your links.
is an article I wrote that should help you fix that issue pronto.
About non-paid affiliate commissions, here are some good ideas too:
- Affiliate Commissions not being paid!
- Is IM a dirty business?
- Affiliate Marketers Ask, “Do I Just Trust That I Will Be Paid?”
Unless you're going thru the big networks, or the affiliate marketing product in question is powered by Rapid Action Profits, do yourself a favor and always check on your affiliate profit status.
It might be you're leaving money on the table…big time.
