    I have been trying this new aff program by Craigspimp.

    The basis is they pay you to place classifieds on craigslist, and backpage.

    For each email you send them you get paid $0.08.

    In reality you will actually be paid for about 1/3 emails that you send them. They will give an excuse for why they won't accept the others.

    Also many times their system is down and not tracking emails, while you're working hard sending them - if their system is down you don't recompensated for work that you did while they were down.

    They also will cancel your account without giving you any kind of notice. They can actually view each ad that I am making, and each place that I am promoting them on - I got an email saying something wasn't working right with my account, and they just up and deleted me.

    The truth:
    If you sent just a form email back to each person that you get from these ads, and only 10% signup for your offer (there's is hornymatches) you'd make $30 per 100 emails vs $8.

    If you're promoting a cam site that makes $150 per sale but has a lower conversion - you'd make maybe $150-$300 per 100 emails.

    There are many scenarios in-between and many different aff programs to try - I highly recommend staying away from this one - if you're gonna do something like this - than just start your own ewhore business and make 10 times as much as they are paying.

    Just my two cents - if you've been scammed by them - please submit your horror story here!

    Interesting feedback. Do any BHW members have positive experiences with this site. Thats 2 negative, and 0 positive. Seems pretty damning.

    its not a scam, because they do pay, they just pay shit....and lol @ its the newbies who are dissatisfied. No, it's the newbies who will work for 8 cents an email, its people with knowledge who realize what you pay 8 cents for can earn them much, much more.

    Personally I would like to see some solid evidence from a reputable member that it has worked for other than people with 0-50 posts, who could easily buy a BHW account or something like that, Just want peeps to be safe, I agree with ken tho its a good way to create a constant flow of incoming emails, and making money off it as well.

    Ill give it a shot this weekend and see if it works, if it does Ill post a thumbs up if not, Ill let you all know, pry gunna be on sunday though.

    Later

    craigspimp got rid of me due to inactivity which is bull since I was promoting everyday. Screw you Craigspimp. Honestly you guys do it yourself you will make much more.
