I heard a story once obout a man who placed an ad in several newspapers selling copper engravings of Abraham Lincoln for $1. When the people who saw the ad and wanted to buy one sent in thier dollar to the address, they later got a penny in the mail from the man. I don't know if this is true or just an urban legend. I thought of it the other night though, as I looked around clickbank for possible products to promote. I came across a product which believe it or not promised to cure all diseases, including cancer in one minute. I don't know what the product is, if it's just a gimmick to build a list, or what. I would be willing to bet that it does not cure cancer though. What I think disturbed me the most is that the total gravity for the thing was over 4000. That made me think of the story from before, and I wondered if some people think we must check our conscience at the door when we become an internet marketer. I'm not saying that every thing you push has to be the best product on the market in that industry. I understand salesmanship, but I don't want to see us become like the used car salesman that everyone in town hates to go to and only does so when they are desperate. Most people don't know affiliate marketing even exist. They have probably bought through one of us and never known. I would hate to see us become the people everyone tries to avoid and no one trusts. Just a thought.
