    It all starts out like that. They are attentive and amazing. You help them get the traffic to the offers, they get more advertisers and then they are sponsoring and all's gravy, huh? I have been with you guys since the beginning. You answered my emails and you helped me yet now you brought on new AM's and while they aren't bad. It's no longer you guys because you are off spending your new found money and driving your amazing new cars most likely.

    Your advertisers are shaving me hard core but you tell me you'll understand if I stop running traffic. No, I'm sorry. It's not working that way. You know and I know that my traffic is LASER targeted traffic. You have always gotten the best from me.

    Why aren't you fighting for me? Why are you not dropping these shady dudes? Why am I wasting my hard earned money running traffic when I am being shaved. I have shown you proof that these leads are as legit as they come or..

    Maybe it's you guys shaving.. I have tried several different campaigns and sent traffic. That was legit and I know, I KNOW THAT PEOPLE signed up. Yet, I am not getting conversions. I have the energy, time and the money.

    Why are you screwing me now? Why?

    I need to know. I don't send shady traffic, I have always let you guys know my plans and strategies. I haven't been paid and I have been sending $1000's of dollars of free traffic with my own money. That I could have used to wipe my bottom with or maybe by that Ipad 2 I really would like. You remind me of a HYIP.

    You use to email me immediately, now I feel that there is selective hearing or reading.

    You guys are starting to really not be cool. I suggest if you want to keep the image up that I'd be starting a new network or start paying attention to your affiliates again.

    Remember we are your bread and butter, without us. You ain't nothing!

    I have no idea who you are? PM me your email in our system please. Why have you not emailed Ken or I directly about this? I think i may know who you are and if so there is absolutely nothing we can do about an Advertiser shaving, other then bitch to them over and over and over and threaten to stop sending them traffic, if they still dont budge there is nothing we can do, not sure what you want us to do. We have tried different advertisers and they are not as good OR the traffic doesn't work for them so there is only so much we can do, and if its not enough then mabie we are not a good fit, like i said only so much we can do.Your AM is very attentive and works around the clock to make sure Affiliates are satisfied but I will personally assign myself as your AM to try and salvage what we can if that will help, just email me or PM me here. Hit me up on Skype also @ AFFILLION

    And we know we are nothing with out our affiliates, thats why you can probably find mabie 1 or 2 threads in the whole internet about any issues versus the hundreds of complaints, of other networks, so do not project your individual issue upon our whole network and our hundreds if not thousands of satisfied affiliates.

    So now we are not a good fit. too good for me now since you have 100's of thousands of satisfied affiliates. I have talked to several people who see that I am being shaved hardcore. There are people who have signed up and told me about it. It's a big ticket item and all you are going to do is threaten to stop traffic and keep pocketing their money.

    I should have several conversions yet I have nothing. Not even one. What is it, every bunch of clicks I send don't get counted but if I continue running traffic, maybe I'll get something. I ran a high ticket offer, threw lots of traffic towards it feeling confident that I'd be paid and that I was with a solid network.

    You can't accuse me of any wrong doings cause my traffic is legit as they come.

    If you know who I am, then answer my emails.

    So why dont you stop sending traffic to them? Seems like a reasonable response if you guys know they are shaving...

    I tried to run a cc campaign with them. Five of my clients reported to me that they have signed up that campaign using the affiliate link which I sent to them.

    And guess what?

    Only clicks and 0 conversion.

    Oopss :confused:

    If you do not get the conversion then we do not either, We get shaved if you get shaved and unfortunatly its a sad reality of this business, one i wish i could change but its a constant battle between networks and advertsiers and there shaving is out of control sometime.

    And Seattle bites i have not received one email from you, nor did you PM me so i still do not know who you are and thus cant address the situation. But if its an issue of being shaved i said i cant do anything about it because we do not shave, its not in our best interest to develop that reputation. Advertisers are the ones who shave not us, our reputation online speaks for itself so im sorry i cant help you out.
    Especially if i received no emails from you or PM.

    PM me and ill look into it or suggest a better offer of which i know will convert, although from experience in past internal campaigns, people always say they sign up when they really dont in hopes of receiving something from you. Not sayin thats what happened, but its a possibility.

    That sounds like a great idea.. You say you are all about us but right here you are looking like the advertiser is the one right here. This isn't a little campaign, the stakes are huge.

    I have spoken with what i beleive to be your partner about this, and have done my best to address the situation. If you want to further talk about it in public we can and people will clearly understand its nothing at all we did or have any control over. Im responding to your PM now and talkin to your partner on Skype.

    Thanks for making the offer inactive. Maybe you should test the offer to ensure that it's good.

    lol @ Affillion.

    They are full of themselves. I applied to their network a while ago. They called and i couldn't reach the phone in time, 10 secs. later they email me rejecting my application.


    Split test your campaign with another network and you will know for sure if they are dickin' you around.

    Totally agree with you, we have a team to internally test a lot of our offers however i will admit they have not done it on all the offers and these high paying legal offers are not our speciality at all, hence we made most of them inactive now till we can find a more solid advertiser and test them.
