has anyone got paid this month by cj? has anyones balance decreased yet?
Nope, my commissions locked and everything, and they asked about my traffic source and everything checked out...
Normally the 20th every month, not sure what's going on. I sent an e-mail today asking what's up.
Glad to hear someone else has the same problem lol
my commissions locked and stuff but they sent me a notice that i was spamming yesturday and that they are canceling my agreement in 15 days. guess they are banning me.
Bummer, hadn't received any notice here. I'm definitely moving away from CJ slowly, they are way too uptight
they are too uptight but i dont know of many affiliates that will take me. do you have any recommendations.
did you get an answer to your email. i didnt get one to mine and its been over 24 hours
they like asking the sources of traffic. but it is really not a problem. Just tell them what you do.
they didnt ask me for the source of my traffic they told me they got several spamming complaints
Well were you hiding/faking/exchanging/etc. your links?
yeh i got paid like 3 days ago
EFT on the 19th this month.
$4,952.55 - OOMPHA!
$3.7k on the 19th here...I get traffic sources / we're shutting down your account from CJ on a 3-6 month clockwork...just raise hell. They haven't shut me down yet.
usually its late for new accounts i guess, my earnings were showing in locked for several days, now its showing in balance area, is it normal?
You don't need to go blackhat to make money with CJ and thus you would have no issues with their "where is the traffic coming from" questions.
I had a conference call with an AM and his boss on Friday and one of the questions they asked was how I generated traffic.
I told them that I do not divulge specifics but that if he wanted to see some of what I do to go to ezine and look up my name. The reason for the call was because I wanted to do an email campaign and highlight some of what this advertiser offered and I wanted to make sure that they were cool with it.
I sent them an example of what I was sending out and showed that it was can spam compliant... email campaign to 88,000 people approved.
Cj has issues with CL, with email spamming and such but you don't need to do that to make decent money there.
If you are going to do some of the "shadier" methods to drive traffic, just make sure that you are upfront with your AM before the process begins to cover your backside because CJ will not bust your stones unless your AM does.
I have not been paid yet, it is my first payment on a new account so hopefully it comes next week!
Everythings locked etc... Just waiting for the payment to be sent I hope soon!
i dont understnad how to hide or fake my links
what i did was i put the affiliate banner on my landing page and then spammed the hell out of my landing page on cl
I sent them an email asking when i will get paid they said
did you stop spamming craigslist?
and then this
We have to spend the time on Monday or Tuesday to see if you have stopped promoting as you were, but also to see if there are more warnings. We also have to check in with the advertiser.
Did you manage your promotions, or did someone else supply you with that?
how would i go about answering their question about who promoted.
all i know is cl if you can share some knowledge that will be helpful.
you guys who make 3k+ are amazing i only make 1k-1500 a month
What do u tell them when they say they are going to shut ur account down? Just make crap up like it would have been ppc traffic?
Scream, yell, and curse a lot. I tell them it's search or mail depending. If it's search often times they will force you to tell them your keywords...so they can go look up your ads.
Tell them what fucknuts they are for stealing your money.
still waiting for cj payment, i contacted them for payment, they said something's wrong with my traffic, and they sent a quality check to the advertiser, hoping to get the answer next week, is it still pay day next week?
