Dumb ass AM's really piss me off. Women AM's are the worst, women are so clueless and anal over everything. Where as the guy AM's are like "What you need? bam done!" I know 10 times more than these AM's and they have no clue to how I drive traffic. In fact the traffic I drive is not even real traffic at all. If they only knew what I was up too they would realize nothing they say to me is of any meaning. I could talk circles around these AM's and share with them knowledge they know nothing about. Yes I use gray/black hat methods depending who you ask. I provide quality traffic as some advertisers love my traffic, and beg for more other advertisers are hard to please and some advertisers you could give the moon and never please them. Here are some of the things that AM's do that really make me want to strangle them. 1. AM's that want to beg you for traffic and ask you for what offers you need to get started. They tell you they are going to get the offers and never do nothing. 2. When you join the network you tell them you do media buys, email, PPC, PPV, contextual. They approve your account buy put you in the system as only a media buyer. first time you run a email campaign they say "I thought you only do media buys? I need to send you to compliance to do a test email campaign from your email system or show us creatives for your email campaigns and we need to see refs. Even when they get no complaints from the advertiser. 3. When you mention about shaving networks. AM's that jump at the opportunity to say "we dont shave leads!" BULLS@*%! if the network is not shaving then I could prove to you that all your advertisers are. I wish for once I could only show them the proof I had. But my proof would reveal that I was doing something gray hat. 4. AM's that complain about refs when the leads are good and the advertiser is happy. 5. AM's that lose my business because they are being anal pricks about unlocking an offer I want to test. 6. AM's that you have to keep chasing just to get things resolved. You contact them for weeks about leads that are not tracking correctly in the network but are tracking on the advertisers end and nothing gets done. 7. AM's that dont even know what a media buy is..... WTF? Are you serious? Please quit your job and find something else. These are just a few. I had to vent a little. But every day my time gets wasted from dumb AM's. Rant over!
