    Help with affiliate advertising our company
    Hello Everyone,
    Our company has an affiliate program with ShareASale, we are fairly new, we started affiliate advertising in August 2008.

    We are doing extremely well, but I am lacking technical skills and knowhow to understand how people can be advertising our company in a shady way. (if you have a link to another discussion on this, that would be greatly appreciated)

    We have this one affiliate from india, who registers as sending tons of hits our way, but in the report there is no link for most hits?
    The website he lists as his company is not the one he is advertising from.
    I emailed this affiliate asking how he is advertising our company 4 days ago, no response.
    In the registered links that do appear, here is the URL...
    [EDIT]

    (link is cut off in the report, that is all i can copy)

    But when i click on it, it takes you directly to a product on our website.
    This affiliate is not downloading our product file.

    Can someone help me understand this affiliates advertising method?

    I apologize in advance for my ignorance, i hope this is not the type of forum that bashes those who ask questions.

    Thank you.
    Tiffany

    Hello Tiffany,
    Welcome to SAS and ABW. You might want to contact one of the many OPMs (Outsourced Program Managers) here in the forum who could give you some tips and tricks. Quite often the initial consultation is free. Another place to read is the Merchant Best Practices forum here. To get a good overview of ABW click on the Forum link at the top of the page where it shows:
    Nav: ABW > Forum > Shareasale > Shareasale Affiliate Forum

    Good luck

    thank you.
    i will do that.
    it took me a year to get our program up and running.
    looks like it will take me another year to understand the inner workings.
    i appreciate those who have read the post and commented.
