    I think probably most people do because they want to make as much money as they can and they think the higher commissions the see means more money. It does not usually happen though.

    Personally I put the two banners and hope to make a sale.you're not the buyer and definitely not a soothsayer to know what your visitors want.So you just place the ad banners strategically and hope that a sale comes through them whether high or low price.

    Too many people that are newer to internet marketing are always looking at the commission amounts and they should be looking at the demand for the item. If there is not demand or a low demand then it doesn't matter how much the commission is because you won't be selling many or maybe not any at all.

    If you know you will make enough sales then go for the high commission for sure but if you do not think you can sell them easily then go for the lower ones that will sell better.

    I like to have a high commission. Whenever I get a high commission I will be proud of it. High commission is essential to make the agent happy. It is like a gift when you have it. You can buy what you want if you will have it. You will have financial freedom and can tour around the world.

    Should it be 2 different advertisers on the banners or the same advertiser with 2 different ads?

    In the beginning I was looking for the highest commission things to go for but they did not do good so now I usually try to look for better selling things.

    But what if the high commission things do not sell?

    I did that a little but mostly I was wanting to get rich by selling a lot of cheaper things that everyone could afford. It has not worked out that way yet though. :(

    Then you just have to try to do some things different or try out different things to promote. You will get the success you want if you stay with it and try other things until you make it big.

    I try to worry more about if the item will sell rather than just the commission amount unless the commission is really low.

    It doesn't matter if you make a Million dollars a sale if you can't sell what the thing is.

    I agree with you. I was not thinking like that when I first started doing my marketing but I have learned this over time.

    I try different things all the time but I just have not found something that is really good for me yet.

    Are you trying things that are good for your niche you are working in?

    We all learn many things over time by doing things and learning from our mistakes. Going for the high commission things first is only natural because we all want to make as much money as we can.

    I agree with that because many people I talk to have done that too. Now I am trying to just use things that will sell more so I can make more money over time.

    Yes I am always trying to find and promote things that are for the niche I work in.

    Then I don't know why they are not working for you better. I am still too new to some things and have to get more experience so I can know some of these things better.

    Can you maybe talk to the people at the affiliate networks and ask them questions about that?

    I probably can try but I don't know how helpful they would be to someone who isn't making them much money.

    I have asked some questions from the affiliate managers and they were very nice and helpful. You can try and see what they can say.

    I would go with which one will give you the best overall total commission amounts. Meaning that if you were promoting something that you got $10 each for and could sell 20 or something you got $100 each but could only sell one then go for the $10 item.

    If the higher commission one would make more overall money even with less sales then go with that one.

    Catch what I am saying?
