Affiliate Products To Love
Affiliate Products – Do you use yours? Recently I purchased a pair of Crocs that I am an affiliate for and it made me wonder – do most people purchase what they have for affiliates on their websites or blogs?
A few months ago we had an experience on our medical uniform website where were introduced a new clog line. I had not tested these out. We have several lines like Cape Clogs, Klogs and Anywears. I have bought each of these clogs except Anywears. I have loved wearing clogs since I was a kid. I was very excited to offer clogs on our site and being able to order them for myself. Especially the fancy print ones.
We have had many customers rave about the Anywears and since they were not so fashionable I did not purchase them. So recently we added this “new” unnamed line and we had 3 complaints. Very poor quality – falling apart. Immediately after the 3rd complaint we took them off the website.
Testing Your Affiliate Products
This made me wonder – do you test your affiliate products out before selling them and putting them on your website? When we first started the scrub business I would buy the new brands and give to my girlfriend who works in a medical office. She would tell me which got the most compliments from her co-workers. (Most of our products are not affiliates on that site)
As you may remember it depends on which state you live in if you can do some affiliate programs. States like Rhode Island, New York, California, Illinois, North Carolina, Arkansas and Connecticut. They have different laws in regards to affiliate product programs. Crocs was one we were able to do in Rhode Island still. We did receive our first check last month 🙂 It takes a few months after the sales before you receive your check. I have been using Rakuten LinkShare for this program. So far so good!
I do love my new Crocs – they are lightweight and very comfortable. I wore them on my recent trip and they were great for airport security too. I also got money taken off my order when I tweeted it and Facebooked it. How nice is that?
