    Great article about why Merchants Rejects Affiliates

    My friend, Greg Hoffman posted an excellent article over at http://www.internetmarketinggorilla.com about why affiliate program managers decline affiliate applications. The actual post is located here, http://www.internetmarketinggorilla....liate-program/



    True Reasons Why You Were Declined:
    • Limited or No Network Bar Performance Rating – Are you a brand new affiliate with an irrelevant site in your profile?
    • Limited International – Are you brand new and from India, Thailand, Russia or China?
    • We Have Previous Knowledge of Your Account – You probably violated our terms of service at some point and we don’t forget these things
    • Negative Feedback – If you have negative feedback for TOS violations, don’t bother
    • Irrelevant Description – If your description of how you will promote us doesn’t match with our TOS, chances are low
    • Website 404 or Under Construction – I check the sites you have listed. If they don’t work, I can’t be the judge
    • Inappropriate Content – Normal stuff like porn or racism
    • Toolbar Reputation – Toolbars have evolved but we want to protect our other affiliates
    What type of affiliates will I step on the cat to hit the “Approve” Button for?
    • Affiliates I have met in person at Affiliate Summit or ShareASale ThinkTank
    • Affiliates I have worked well with in the past
    • Niche affiliates with sites relevant to the vertical
    • Full, top performers with good reputations
    • New publishers with relevant, clean looking sites
    • Super Affiliates that build sites specifically for my merchant
    • Bloggers
    • Anyone that gives me a compelling argument to give them a shot
