    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! ;)

    While I don't agree with you on the female AM part, I do agree with everything else lol.

    I have had only 2 great/amazing AM's. That was from Affillion and AdvertMarketing.

    I like smaller networks because then you have a chance of getting the owner as your AM, that way he knows his shit and has the power to do things other AM's can't do :)

    This is so true. I have worked with 20 networks and 0 got back to me after my acceptance.

    I disagree with the women thing.


    2 of my worse AMs are 1 guy and 1 girl.
    Incompetence is anywhere.


    My best AM so far is a woman.

    definitely 100% on what you said...smaller networks are better to do JV's and such...in fact I do jv's with network owners and never regret it :)

    ... and actually cares about the money you make them, as opposed to a random AM grinding 9-5 for their (fixed) monthly salary.

    So many AM's are so damn LAZY!

    I will lots of times test offers and get zero conversions..... I know exactly how many conversions I should be seeing on any given day, I know EXACTLY how many conversions a network or advertiser is shaving me daily. It is not a mystery to me. I will then many times contact my AM's and 7 times out of 10 when an AM says I will get back to you I am going to look into it. I know hell will freeze over before I hear back from them.

    I swear anytime I hear and AM say I will get back to you I know I will never hear from them again until they come back weeks later asking for traffic or some great offer they just got in the network.

    MotherF%&*er you think I will send you traffic when you cant even give me the support I need when I already tried testing an offer on your network. I swear these people make my blood boil! Such monkeys!

    you remind me of drool filled guys at affiliate summit west who get hard on for any female affiliate manager and believe you get best $$$ with them. hahahaha

    anyone who been with any cpa company for over 1 year see how quick turnaround on female AM's is

    the most annoying thing to me is when you say "I dont see my wire" and they say "let me check for you" and a day goes by with no response. The next day you say "Wheres my wire" and they say "let me check for you" ....

    Most of AM´s are jerks, they are like to play with they power of turning you down or not, most of them are not returning your emails cause they are very busy with drinking their precious coffee. :)

    Its not that, if you have a nice job then you dont need to play a god on other people needs, i got a very nice affiliate manager at cp@ le@d and then last year i got banned like the other 90% of people and i reapplyed and i was stuck with some dude who fu.ked me of like i am stupid or something, why cant they tell you what are the requirements to get in, i will meet those requirements, not everyone is a scammer, i work very hard for my cash and i dont make much, but i sleep well at nights.

    Maybe i am dick for saying this but this is my point of view. :)

    I hate pushy & nosy motherfuckers who act like being in their network is a privilege and you owe them something. Networks are a fucking COMMODITY.
