The survey by Shawn Collins about what affiliates will or won’t promote is in.

Shawn asked of “a couple hundred” affiliates (take into account they are reading Shawn’s site so they are probably above average).

It reveals that for affiliates, roughly half have no problem promoting drinking and gambling sites. Most draw the line at porn and drugs.

I never want to promote anything I don’t believe in or wouldn’t want to admit I promoted. For me, that’s everything on this list. However, sometimes the industry is trendsetting. You can study their techniques and apply them to other products.

When it comes to choosing what to promote as an affiliate, choose things you know a lot about and enjoy. Or things that are profitable which you don’t object to. I say if you love something that’s profitable, do that. If what you love is too obscure, you probably won’t make money on it.
