[Affiliate Marketing] Seven dollar junk

This post may contain affiliate and ad links for which I earn commissions.

How often do you do it?

As a buyer, I mean…

How often do you fall for a new shiny object, priced at only $7, and you buy it because of the promises and the praises in the comments…

And then you end up with a new piece of seven dollar junk!

I just did it again yesterday, because I found a product I thought would help the product creators on my list. Since the guy ignored my question about getting review copy (which is often a sign of a bad product), I bought it.

Did I learn something?

Yes, but not what the product was supposed to teach. I got some ideas, though.

But it also made me question this:

Should we as affiliates promote $7 products at all?

I've done it. I've even priced my own products at $7 or $9.95.

And I've promoted great products for $7.

But let's face it: The majority of the $7 products are NOT worth the price.

You get what you pay for – or maybe even less than you pay for.

A high-level marketer in a Skype group just told us how he sold less products when they cost $7 than if they cost $27, $47 or more.

Why? Because people associate higher prices with higher quality.

And often with good reason.

One of my subscribers wrote and told me that he didn't want to buy a product by Erica Stone (as far as I remember) because it was priced above $7. He took this as a sign of a greedy vendor.

I disagree, for the most.

Sure, there are vendors who make $7 products but sell them for $47. But they are rare.

I see more vendors who sell $1 products for $7!

So after this rant, I want you to think about this: Should we as affiliates stop promoting $7 products? Have people lost faith in them? Are they – mostly – worthless junk?

I would love to hear your thoughts about this.

Best regards,
Britt Malka

P.S. In case you're curious, this is the product that inspired my rant: https://warriorplus.com/w/a/zjv8x – It has some good ideas in it, but you don't learn to write a sales letter…
