    Does this affiliate deal sound good to you?
    • Imagine a website that delivers lower prices to the consumer than ebay.
    • You get to promote any products you like as long as they aren’t taken by another affiliate and once you chose your products, you have a 100% guaranteed onsite monopoly.
    • You get paid on each and every unit of your chosen product that is sold at a rate of 1.5%...including sales that didn’t directly originate with you, for ever. You also build up equity in your business.
    • You would initially have to deal with some customer emails (with templates for speed...maybe 5 a day) until site reaches critical mass, at which point, you wouldn’t need to deal with this type of work.

    This sounds more like drop ship and less like affiliate marketing.

    Sounds like some sort of scam to me. I would be skeptical of something like this.

    So, are you leading up to some sort of offer here? Some little bit of spam maybe? I mean, if you just want opinions on that kind of business model, that's cool, but it sounds rather spammy to me so far.

    When someone has a "monopoly" it isn't affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing involves a lot of people promoting your site/product.

    So it sounds like your business model isn't appropriate for affiliate marketing, and you are misunderstanding how affiliate marketing works.

    i cant really go into the business model...I know affiliate marketing very well...(I know this deal sounds too good to be true)...Im not leading up to an offer....Im doing research.

    So far I have heard...its great, but sounds too good to be true...and I need more info. If this is your true feelings, please vote accordingly....I will update this thread with the idea in a few months and you will all get a chance to see the ide and participate if you like...I think you'll love it.

    Think of it like this. When ebay started if you had an option to help them get off teh ground by marketing selected products and getting paid forever when they no longer needed marketing help when one of those products was sold....would you like to turn back time and take that deal knowing what you know now?

    We aren't a place for datamining, contrary to what certain new members think. If you have something related to affiliate marketing, fine, but this is not sounding like anything affiliate marketing related at all, it is sounding like a franchise or get rich quick deal.
