How do You Get Your Affiliates to Fully Commit to Your Promotion?

30 Days of Q&A - Day Twenty Eight

One of the biggest problems I’ve experienced with affiliates is getting them to fully commit to a promotion. Sure, they say they’ll promote, but when the time comes to send an email, they are nowhere to be found. Today’s video shows you how to get your affiliates to fully commit to promoting your launch.

In the back of my mind I did, but even I had forgotten about the principle of consistency when I wrote that post.

How Do People Really Want to be Treated? | Cialdini & Clinton
