    Ok,

    I have been using fling for a very long time, i've had great conversions, free to paid, but recently, i've been checking my stats, and i noticed my covnersions had gone to hell, and i mean hell, I had 240 free joins, and 1 paid, I looked into my account, I thought something was def fishy, so i did a little more due diligence, to find out that, Fling.com had removed the 3 day trial $4.95 membership , so this made me believe the average consumer was buying a trial membership, and now they stopped buying the others, If my stats DO NOT improve or they dont fix my account, I will have to refrain from using them.


    Otherwise, I will have to move on to blackbook, Ive heard excellent things about them. :(

    I'm a heavy promoter of fling as well and I've also noticed a huge drop in conversions. I don't know what in the hell is going on with them. I've heard complaints from other people too. First I thought someone was stealing my sales but that wouldn't be so easy to do. I'm currently looking for another adult site to promote so if you have any good ones in addition to blackbook please let me know.

    On the other hand, I seriously hope that nothing is wrong with their tracking system. That would really suck. I know some people who make well over 1k a day with fling, that would really hurt their company if they were to go elsewhere, which is what I'm about to do.

    1K a day? That's fucking peanuts dude and no it wont hurt them if they leave. I personally know two affiliates for CX Digital on the private/select black, asian and latin offers that are grossing over 1 million a month. Both of these affiliates are in college and I've shook both of their hands in Adtech Miami June. As if this wasn't enough I also stayed in the same hotel with two guys (members of this very forum) had that did almost $400,000 in just 10 days with Fling. I've personally got affiliates in my own network that are grossing over 3K a day.

    So please, take it from someone who has a direct line of communication with the owners and shareholders of Fling. Losing 1K a day affiliates is not going to matter when you are crossing 6-8 million a month. As for conversions, I can only speak from what I know of people personally promoting it and affiliates within our network and all I can say is that some people are doing retarded, ridiculous volume and none of them are bitching about conversions yet. Hopefully it stays that way but thanks for the heads up on this thread as it looks like I need to have a look at our exclusives to make sure everything is cherry.

    It's been going down for a couple of months (maybe a year by now) but it's still doing better than other dating sites... at least for me.
