By Nicole Dean

Today, Iím sitting at my computer, about to launch a new site and Iím going through Clickbank, looking for potential affiliate programs to promote.

Time and time again, Iím shaking my head, wondering if these Internet Marketers realize how many potential affiliates they are losing, as I click the red ďxĒ and go to the next product. And, of course, this isnít only a problem with the products listed at places like Clickbank (and it certainly isn't a reflection of the quality of Clickbank, itself). Affiliate Programs everywhere are lacking in their professionalism and respect for their affiliates.

Itís pretty obvious that many people donít realize what turns off a potential affiliate. Could it be, perhaps, that the people writing these books have not been successful at Affiliate Marketing themselves?

After much frustration, Iíve decided to run through my list of reasons I did not choose your product to promote, and, instead chose your competition.

1. Your page is gaudy and unappealing.

Now, we all know the saying that ĎUgly sites sellí. Thatís absolutely true. A plain blue background with Arial text can make millions. However, a site that looks like a sparkly, flashy mess and gives your visitors a seizure is not cool. Leave the cursors alone. Donít stick animation on there. And, for goodness sakes, stick with only one or two fonts, please.

2. Typos and spelling errors.

This one is actually kind of frightening. If the product youíre selling is an e-BOOK then please act like you know how to write. Have a friend or even an enemy read and reread your sales letter for you. If you donít have any friends or enemies, then pay someone. Just donít try to sell an e-book on a sales page that looks like a third grader wrote it. Itís not going to sell. At least Iím not going to sell it.

3. You offer sales options that I won't get affiliate credit for on the sales page. For instance, you list an electronic and a hard-cover version of your book through amazon. Tacky! Why should I send you traffic through Clickbank so that you can make a commission on amazon? Not a chance. Or even worse, you have both a Clickbank button and a paypal button.

And, my #1 biggest irritant --

4. Youíve got google ads or actually have the guts to sell advertising on your page. (And, no, Iím not joking here.) I donít even need to go there. Anyone whoís a successful affiliate knows that this is the sign of death for any affiliate program.

So, there you have it. Four reasons why your competition is getting my loyalty and you are not.
