Hasty Decision in choosing a product
 A number of starters and new publishers are so fervent to get the big cash; so they just choose the product immediately that comes firstly in their access and target. This course of action is not cautious and careful, and this leads to your disappointment that your hasty decision to choose the product was wrong and this product has not relevance with what you needed and supposed to do.

Unable to use or purchase the product that you want to sell 
The credibility and worth of the product should be known to the affiliate programmer or publisher. The common mistake is made when the publisher fails to but the product that he/she wants to sell.
