Dear Affiliate: We apologize for our delayed response to your recent application to join Hydra Network. Our decision to improve network quality in order to attract more substantial, brand name advertisers has led us to make some fundamental changes here at Hydra. For one, we are currently migrating all network operations to HNv2, our brand new affiliate interface and improved proprietary tracking platform. As part of these changes, we have also added much tougher restrictions for all new affiliate applications. Now, in order to gain approval as a Hydra affiliate, you must meet the following criteria: * You must have been in business as an affiliate for at least one year. * You must have verifiable aggregate affiliate earnings, through one or more leading networks, of at least $10,000 per month. If you meet these criteria, please send an email containing your name, company name, and the email address you applied under to [email protected] so that we may schedule a phone interview, obtain additional documentation, and expedite the application review process. Please note the deadline for replies is February 22, 2010. If you meet the criteria but miss the deadline, your pending status will expire and the application will be cancelled. If you don?t meet the criteria, simply do nothing?we will automatically cancel your application. Again, we apologize for the wait and any inconvenience we?ve caused. But we hope that you can appreciate that all the changes we?re making will ultimately allow us to bring affiliates new, more lucrative opportunities than ever before. All the best, Hydra Network Staff http://www.hydranetwork.com I got that after applying over a month ago, that email was sent today.
