    Just a quick tip if you don't like receiving the phone calls, feel that you will mess it up, or sound foreign.

    When they ring, get a friend to answer and say you're driving... then just answer the questions through your friend. Good thing about this is that it gives you instant credibility that you are mature enough to drive (if you don't already). Use the extractor fan in a kitchen to receive the call under so it sounds like you're in a car, or answer it in a bathroom where it is a bit "echoey".

    Sorry, but that's not much of a tip. If I was to call an affiliate and I was told "the guy can't talk, he's driving", I'd either ask to call back (which makes the "friend" thing pointless), or I'd simply reject your application.

    If you want a real tip - be honest. The call isn't a 20 question pass/fail test. Networks just want to make sure you really are who you say you are. Just make sure you fill out the application form honestly and answer all the questions honestly.

    Inexperienced? Doesn't matter. Feel you site isn't as professional as others? So what. Under 18? That too doesn't matter much. Nervous on the call, no big deal. JUST BE HONEST!

    I don't agree about being 100% honest.

    Some times if you bend the truth slightly it will help you to get in.

    How long have you been involved with CPA?

    Don't say you are new, say you have been involved for about 18 months or something.

    When you apply leave them your number but don't call them back right away. Let them call a few times, then call them back on your terms when you are relaxed.

    I was just suggesting it as a method for people who feel less confident. I got an affiliate manager ring me when i was driving and i answered the questions through my girlfriend and it was fine, i wouldn't have had a problem speaking to them directly either but it just seemed like a simple idea to help those who have foreign accents yet say they're from the US. I just thought it may help one or two people who cant afford to be honest :rolleyes:
