    Whenever I try to apply to a program on CJ, I get denied, everytime! Most likely because I don't have a website, but I want to make a promotion website for the particular product when my application is accepted, help?

    Get a website ? There's some dirt cheap hosting packages knocking about, every second week godaddy are doing a domain for $1.99 you could have a site up in a few hours even if you only use it to get affiliate acceptance

    But will they accept a website with absolutely no content?

    why no content ? put a few hours effort in and write some articles...if you dont want to do that just copy/paste a few articles off the web(from a site that doesnt get much traffic) and spin 10% of the wording to make it look unique.. Look in the downloads/themes section of the site there are loads of good themes that look pro the second you install them..theres also free graphics/logo and banner sites on the web...a few hours work and you are set up

    If you want...might as well have a site that you can use...but any site that you can present to CJ will get you approved then you can pick your own offers

    I'm with Duffers5000 on this one. Just build a site. Any site for the time being and apply for a CJ niche that you want. After you get approved then you can change your site to be site specific or even just get a new domain and do it there. GoDaddy has the .99 domains right now going on.

    I am just curious, how do you have two stars and not know these basic questions. You must not of been reading and honestly participating to get you to two stars. What did you, do add dumb comments to make this happen? Again I am not trying to be mean but think about it. Who would approve you for something you don't have. Make up a website about anything you want. As long as you have a website you can easily get an account. They have to approve your website to make sure it is legal before they put their adds on there.

    OP, its not about you not having a site. There's other factors taking a place - you have to have previous sales to be accepted automatically. But to start getting the sales you need to be accepted first, right? Running circles. But do not despair, you need to apply directly to offer companies as stated in application declined page
    Having a working site will help you to get accepted. So sort this one out first.

    Set aside a couple hours and just set up the site, it will help get you approved for offers.

    Okay thanks for the tips, just added my old website where I used to ran my CPA offers on. Hopefully I'll get accepted soon!

    I went down that route, When I started Affiliate, I was in the midst of building my {Current site}, but on the CJ profile, I had the first website I built, now in the trash bin because it failed, so used it as a learning curve.

    When I applied for my affiliate, he saw my 1st {failed} website and denied me. I'm a type of guy that doesn't exactly take no for a answer, so I politely emailed them, with my half built {current} website which was built especially to work for his company. Straight after he checked the site out, he accepted me.

    Obviously, I'm not going to share my niche, affiliate program or anything like that, as I have something that works well with my style, and don't want everyone jumping on board.

    make sure you add your site to your cj cpanel and select the right category for your site that pertains the offer you want to promote also. this goes a long way to getting approved.

    There's a post here somewhere that talks about getting approved (sticky post?). Go look for some blogs related to the offer you want to get approved for and enter those url's (you can check Whois to find privately registered).
