    Here's the email:

    "I've just been alerted to your lens. I'm happy to have you as an affiliate but you have broken several rules with this lens. You are writing it in the first person as if you wrote the e-book. You may not do that. You've basically extracted my entire sales page and put it on this lens and are deceiving the reader into thinking you wrote the book. Also, you can not have an order link that goes directly to my order page at Clickbank without my permission. As an affiliate, you can "pre-sell" the e-book with your lens and have a link to the "7 Day Free Report" only.


    Yeah, I basically copied the sales letter and changed it a little bit. I'll change it some more to keep her happy.

    I do have a link to the 7 Day Free Report on the lens.

    But what about linking directly to the order page. I never thought there was a problem with doing that. Is she correct in telling me that I can't do that without her permission?

    She can set the rules any way she pleases, but if you're making sales the way you are, she really should just stfu and take the sales unless you're being SO bad that she's getting chargebacks (returns).

    You've already got the lens built, so you've invested your time. Might as well just comply and move on to your next project. If the sales drop off, send her an email and offer to put it back the way it was. :)

    Tell her that you ll switch to her competitor, cause she's a bitch to deal with.
    And don't promote her stuff anymore.

    And yeah, in case you piss her off, she can contact clickbank staff and cut your commisions because you bypass her sales page and you infringe on her copyright trademark by copying her sales page.

    I like that idea the best. I don't really want her going to Clickbank, because then they'll see the stuffing I doing!

    I bypassed her sales page because it looks like sh*t.

    I think she's just mad because her main page ranks 12th in G**gle and my lens ranks 4th for the same keyword. (I also own 5th-9th spots for the same keyword with videos and articles)

    LOL, that's good. You are in position to bring her sales, you have better SEO skills and she's pissed??? LMAO :D

    I second that motion: Tell her you'll go promote her competitor.

    Let us know how it ends up.

    Become her competitor by promoting her competitor. Put your marketing efforts into a product where someone is actually thankful for your efforts rather than this douchebag.

    Freakin hilarious! There are so many ungrateful people out there. You are bringing her sales and she should be happy yet she asks you to stop?!? What a moronic bitch!

    Definitely start promoting her closest competitor and when she sees the sales plummet she'll be whining for you to start promoting again!

    Hahaha this is actually quite funny. She should be asking you for SEO lessons, not bitching about you owning her in the SERPS. :p

    If I were her, I would be extremely grateful.

    She may be pissed off because she is building a list using your traffic. If you send the surfers directly to her sales page she loose the opportunity to steal your traffic into her List.

    Now, if you rank well for her keyword and if she still bitches about it,
    1. Update your lens saying Her product Sucks and
    2. Promote her competitor.

    By the way stuff some cookies so even if some of your surfers still decides to buy her product. ;)

    Become her competitor. Make a product like hers (or El*ance it), so you can get more from your own efforts.

    I'll guarantee this is exactly right. Who in their right mind would bitch about their own product out ranking their own product? :confused: She should be praising you!

    Yeah... Because of her stupidity, she will lose sales (and opt-ins), and then be outranked by her competetors product. She'll be begging you to do whatever you want to do.

    This is funny ! Haha.. This is cool !

    Perhaps she will send another email to you, begging you to change back your lense to the original version that you are using now.
