To Give Away Review Copies or Not?

How About this for a Lack of Savvy from Clickbank Code?

I recently made a decision never to put another link on my site to products that I haven’t actually tried and tested or reviewed. This helps me actually sell more products – not to mention sleep better at nights. 😉

If I’m gonna sell something then from now on, at the very least I am going to see the product or service and test it for myself.

Believe it or not, many marketers will sell and continue to sell services or products based on the sales conversions alone. Whether they are aware of the quality of the product or not, doesn’t come into the equation. I’ve done it myself! Not anymore though, going forward.

Getting to the point of this post, I emailed the staff at Clickbank Code to ask for a review copy of the product in return for reviewing it on this blog. Here’s their response:

Dear Mal,
If you wish to review the ClickBank Code, please purchase it.
After the purchase you will find all the material that we offer to our affiliates.
Kind Regards

Did I get them on a bad day? This doesn’t make sense!

Given the fact that I made them aware of the amount of traffic I get to this blog and that I’ve already made sales of the product to prove myself, I fully expected to receive a link to the download in the return email. Having checked my Clickbank stats I actually made 14 sales of this product in a couple of months totalling $100s in commissions for myself and the company.

I find it unbelievable that they would not send me a copy of a DIGITAL product – giving away one download, or a million copies, does not deplete their inventory of the product at all. So, they have nothing to lose and potentially a lot to gain by giving away copies to successful affiliates.

I was totally pissed off to be honest, as I had been looking forward to selling more of the Clickbank Code, and honestly reviewing what it had to offer.
