The Super Affiliates Check List For Choosing A Product To Promote!

Super affiliates have a full proof method of selecting the right product to promote!
They have rules that they stick to every time they have to chose. Here is the check list that a super affiliate uses:

1. The sales copy

The sales copy must have good quality! If it is well written and makes the super affiliate want to buy the product, then he will buy it, check it and if it has value he will promote it. The super affiliate knows that if the sales letter made him get the product, then it’s very likely that others will do the same!

2. The price of the product

Super affiliates think outside the box! They don’t say “Hey, this software costs 300$!
No one is going to buy it! I’ll go and look for one that’s cheaper!”, they go “Hmm… if this product has value, then I will earn a pretty good commission from it! I’ll get it and see if it really is that good!”.

A super affiliate knows that if a product seems relatively expensive (for example 300$)
and at the same time it has a good to great sales letter, then they have to test the product!
Why is that? Because, they know that this product might just be worth a lot more then it’s actual price!!! And if this is the case, then it will generate huge sales!

This doesn’t mean that super affiliates promote only high priced products! Not even close! They have products that sell for 67$, 47$, 27$ and even 7$! This is because the products are valuable and it brings them another source or income (even if they only get
3 $ per sale, the product is more likely to sell – if it has great bonuses- just because no one wants to loose the opportunity of getting something that’s worth 200$ or even 500$ for the price of 7$)!

3. The commission that the merchant is offering

Super affiliates want great commissions for promoting something. The higher the better!

They look for one tier affiliate programs and two tier ones.

A one-tier commission program will pay out a certain percentage on each sale you make.

A two-tier commission program will pay out a percentage on each sale you make plus another percentage of any sales made through your referral.

The super affiliate promotes a product, someone buys it (and the super affiliate gets the commission) and then the guy that initially bought becomes an affiliate for that product and promotes it to someone else who buys (the super affiliate gets another commission which is usually not very large, but they add up quickly!)

This sound great, but there’s even something greater! It’s called recurring commissions and super affiliates love them!

Recurring means again and again and… When you promote a product that has this sort of commission then all you have to do is sell it once ( these are usually monthly memberships or hosting programs) and you get paid again when the buyer pays for next month and so on!

Now, you see why the super affiliates are absolutely thrilled about these sort of commission!

4. The quality of the product

When they chose a product, super affiliates make sure that this has great value! This ensures that they will sell the product and that they build trust with their buyers (which will become their prospects for other products they promote in the future). Trust is very important for the super affiliates, because trust means more money in the future!

Also, they look for hidden benefits that the product might have and make that a key selling point in their promotions! By doing this, a super affiliate gets a head start over the others affiliates, because not anyone can find the hidden benefits of a product!

5. Does the product fit in with the strategy?

Super affiliates have plans and strategies that they stick to no matter what! That’s mainly the reason for their success: they don’t go chasing after every hot new product just because everyone is promoting it! If the product is in an area that they are not interested in or haven’t got a clue about, they just don’t promote it!

The super affiliates are often experts in just 2-3 niches! But they know their niche inside out and when a product in that specific niche comes out, then affiliates came to them to see if the product is good or not (if the super affiliate is promoting the product it means that it has a good value) and only after they start promoting.

It’s not unusual, for the super affiliates, to be asked if they are promoting a product by the members of their lists and the one that know them (this is trust at work!)! People go to super affiliates because they know they are experts and often they offer great bonuses for the products they promote!

How to Earn People’s Attention in Your Next Presentation

Before you dive into the details of your next presentation and start preparing your PowerPoint and stressing about how it will go…


Ask yourself a more important question.

A question that far-too-few people ask.

How will I earn their attention?

Because if they aren’t paying attention, your message will be lost.

This has always been an important question, but in our frantic, internet and gadget-filled lives, it is now absolutely critical.

If you don’t earn their attention, email, Twitter or something else will.

Here is the bottom line – the best presentation in the world is meaningless if no one is listening.
Answering our question then: “how will I earn their attention?” is critical to our communication success (and let’s face it, our ego too). Here are some ways to do exactly that…

It’s about earning, not getting. Let’s start with the question itself. Most people, if this even crossed their minds, would think about how they can get someone’s attention. You really want to earn it. You don’t want people to feel tricked or duped. You don’t want to get their attention and then not deliver (more on that later). If you want people to put down their phones and listen to your message, you must come to this task with the goal to serve them and their needs. Think about how to earn their attention, which requires you to do the next point…

Put yourself in their shoes. This isn’t about what excites you about the topic or what you think is important. (You’ve been to plenty of presentations where the expert cared, but you saw no relevance, right?).

Repeat after me: This isn’t about me; it’s about my audience. So get to know their situation, their needs, their interest, and their perspective. There is more you want to know (and I will highlight them before we are done), but this is a good start. Remember you are giving the presentation for their benefit, so everything about your design and delivery needs to be about them.

Attention follows interest. Think about it. You will partly watch the TV while you do something else, until YOUR show is on. You will listen-with-one-ear to the lunchtime conversation until it is important to you.

Attention is a valuable commodity; it is the use of the finite resource of our time. You will earn people’s interest once they are interested in what the topic means to them. Which means you must put yourself in their shoes and get to know their needs so you can address them directly. When people know that what is coming is of interest to them, they will listen. So make sure you let them see that connection.

The data alone won’t do it. Sorry to all of the data wonks and people who consider themselves critical thinkers; the data is important, but alone it is never enough. Human beings are emotional beings and so to earn attention (and therefore interest), we must do more than craft the perfect logical argument or the most beautiful pie chart. Let people see, or help them discover what is in it for them, and why this should matter to them. Think about human needs and not just logic. When you do that, you will earn their attention and be more excited to share with them too.

Pain before pleasure. Study after study shows that people would rather avoid loss than hope for gain. We remember negative things longer than positive ones. We buy more aspirin than we do vitamins. So when people see how your message will remove pain, stress or frustration, they will be more attentive. If you can help them avoid uncomfortable or unsavory things, they will more likely be with you. This one is hard to remember if you are a generally positive person, or if you are motivated by the possibility of gain. Even if that is you, remember the mantra, remove pain first, then extol the positive possibilities.

It’s the message, not the tactic. There are plenty of tactics that might be a big enough surprise to get people to listen to you at the start. While a tactic like the right joke, a simple magic trick or banging your shoe on the table (a la Nikita Khrushchev), might be enough of a pattern interrupt for people to look up and listen, it isn’t enough to hold them with you for the message you want to share. After all, you don’t really want them to remember the joke but miss your message, do you?

For your next presentation, start with these ideas and your strategies for using them, not by firing up PowerPoint. It will seem like it is taking you longer at first, but you will get a much better result when you are through.

Are Toys Really The Best Kids Christmas Presents?

The question is: are toys really the right kids Christmas presents? The simple answer is a resounding yes.

Welcome to the age whereby your kid’s eyes are a little more inquisitive and they are, in general, far more savvy of the world around them than we ever were as kids. Their minds are being shaped by everything around them at an alarmingly fast rate, and it’s important to make sure that those surroundings enhance and promote good character traits.

Creative Development

Since the beginning of time, children have loved toys, and of course in more recent times, they love to play video games. Whether you are talking about childhood in your grandparent’s time, your time, or today, imagination is still the greatest gift that we can give our children, and toys are of great assistance to the creative development of any child.

With such an abundance of toys on the market, it gets harder each year to choose which are the best toys for our little ones. The first place to start would be to ask your child to write a Christmas list. Go over the list and fine tune it to ensure that as well as having entertainment value, “want” value and that it will make your child extol your praises to all their friends, that everything has a positive learning, or playful, experience. Avoid buying anything with an implication of violence or negative influences – traits which have unfortunately made their way into some of our children’s toys.

Promote Healthy Competition and Creativity

Contrary to popular belief, video games do have the capacity to offer a very positive learning experience if they are chosen wisely. They have the ability to promote healthy competition and creativity, and some online games offer your child the ability to make friends with other players around the world.

While there are those that frown on kids video games, remember that the skills gained by the player are transferable into everyday life. Competition, creativity, persistence, social skills, determination, turn taking and patience are all skills we want our children to learn, and why not kill two birds with one stone and teach these skills via a medium your child is keenly interested in? After all, isn’t the first vehicle of learning for a child through play? I guess video games present the same vehicle, albeit for today’s child.

Toys and games are terrific kids Christmas presents because they also promote sharing whilst attaining personal enjoyment. Some toys, like educational toys, are primarily offered to promote learning, while others promote creativity and problem solving. It’s really quite amazing how we can align many toys to the building blocks of life with a little imagination. A karaoke unit, for example, may be instrumental in helping a child to overcome shyness, while a Barbie doll will allow a child to venture into the depths of their own imagination.

It is essential that you follow any age recommendations given by the manufacturer, as these are included for the safety of your child.

Never forget that one of the best presents you could ever give your kids comes in the form of unconditional love. While it’s not something we can wrap up in pretty paper, and it can’t be tangibly seen, it’s one of the most powerful kids Christmas presents that can be felt.

Hey… don’t forget the batteries!
