Affiliate for The Best Spinner
« on: June 01, 2011, 11:12:22 PM »
Hi Jon

I have been subscribed to The Best Spinner for 4 months and find it an excellent product, hence the reason I've just signed up to be an affiliate for it. I try to pass on programs that are as good a value for others as they are to me.

I really could not find anywhere else to ask this question so I will just ask here. As for some strange reason Pay dot com will not allow me to ask a question until a sale is made  ???

Got to admit I think I prefer Clickbank, but will give this mob a fair trial.  :-\

My affiliate link for the Best Spinner goes to a sales page offering the program for $7 then $77 per year.

However I only paid $47 per year and if I do a search for TBS most offers are for a special backdoor offer at the $47 per year price.

So where do I get my affiliate link for this page?

I know I will be unlikely to sell the product $30 dearer than most others, also I don't think I would fell good selling a product at a price much higher than I paid, knowing full well it is available at such a discounted price.

Let's face it, it can be hard enough to sell a product at any price, and I think it is rather unfair practice to be stuck behind the eight ball so to speak with a link to a $77 product and not the $47

Any way I can get this link?

Regards
Allan  ???

The $47 promo is a special closed promo. It's not open to all affiliates.

Well that hardly makes it fair. Come on, I believe that a bit of competition never hurt anyone, but how do I compete against those sorts of odds.

I would really like to hear what all the other affiliates are doing to get around this. Don't want your secret tactics but some general comments would be nice.

I spend a lot of time getting articles, backlinks etc,etc to promote the various products I offer, but having the privileged few being able to undercut me by $30. Mate I wouldn't even buy from my own link.

Jonathan, when you say closed do you mean that the special price will soon be gone for all affiliates, or do the affiliates that have the special promotion price get to use it for as long as they promote TBS?

Allan

No, it means I have special ongoing deals with particular affiliates who (usually) are offering TBS as part of a package so their users can access the API from within the affiliate's software.

Well Jonathan whilst I find TBS a great product to use, I feel that the affiliate program sux (my opinion) I don't mean to offend.

I know when I'm buying a product I do research and let's be honest here good old Google soon finds the best deals.

I find that rather disappointing, that after spending $150 on SEO Link Robot or a similar product they get a discount link. It's no wonder that the little affiliates are struggling.

Anyone that Googles TBS will most likely not buy from any affiliate with the $77price tag. I just did a quick search and found at least 10 offers for the $47 deal. So I don't expect I'll be selling to many of TBS for you Jonathan.

Would be nice to know what the rest of you guys think, come on there has been quite a few reads of this post.

Regards
Allan

You're quite mistaken.  The vast majority of affiliate sales are at the $7+$77 level, not the $47 level.  Four affiliate sales of the $77 package are made for every one sale at the $47 level -- and the great majority of $47 level sales are made from those who have the API built into their applications and are offering TBS to their users in order for them to use the API.

It's nice to think that everybody does a ton of research before buying, but they don't.  Some do, most don't, and still others go with whatever affiliate did the best at pitching it to them -- whatever the price.

Find your market and work it.  If you're not making many sales there's a flaw in your method, not in the affiliate program.

Well that's nice to know. Thanks for your words of encouragement. I guess time will tell.

I still think TBS is a great product at any price, and when my renewal time comes round I'll get it through someone else's link  ;D  ;)

Buy the way I'm looking forward to TBS update I couldn't get the beta version to run.
Tried a few various downloads, no worries the older version is great!!

You are mistake there is some thebestspinner affiliate that offer the best spinner discount for $47 without offer their application that have built the best spinner api, even you can search from google to find the best spinner discount, not only the best spinner you can also find instant article wizard discount price offered on couple website. for me this is not fair competition between affiliate member, i think you must appreciate their work for review and using your software with giving same opportunity to promote your product

As I said, MOST affiliates with the $47 offer are using the API as a back-end product.  I have a few super-affiliates who have also been allowed the $47 offer, but only a few.  Also as I stated, the vast majority of sales are from the $77 offer, not the $47, so you're not hurting from "unfair competition" -- if you're not making sales you're not selling to the right market or you're not preselling very well.

Ha,ha sixincome I think both you and I are voices in the wilderness. This is one argument we just aint going to win.
I have sites selling other products with some success, but the playing field is even with regard to price.
Sorry Jon but I still think it's a bit one sided. But that's my opinion.
 I can say that TBS is the most used programs I use and when I have to renew I'll find a discount page and order from there, but it wont be mine or your sixincome  ;D

It is your opinion, and you're entitled to it. But I have the sales figures and the stats to prove that your opinion is incorrect.

 ;D No worries Jon I'm over it. It's not a problem really.

You have a great product and yes its worth whatever you pay for it. I love it. I even printed out the the PDF user guide.

Mate, when is the new version coming out. I could not get the beta version to run tried a few different downloads with no success.
