What do you sell?

Below you will find a description of an affiliate program listed on sas. I see this type of thing alot. Is it too much to ask for for the description of the program to contain what type of items are for sale at the website. I can assure you, that you can't tell from the merchants name and there is nothing in the description explaining what they sell. There is however several sentences which should go without saying when its posted on SAS such as what an affiliate program is. Someone at SAS should tell these people, to describe what they do first, then maybe some terms that makes them special. We should already know 1) what an affiliate program is and 2) that they teamed up with SAS 3) SAS handles all the tracking.
I think a description of a program should always start with We are company name and we sell/promote these products/services.

Thanks for bringing this up, it's been bugging me for a while.
I've sometimes found it challenging to find merchants that sell specific products. It seems like if the merchant doesn't have a specific term that I'm searching for in their description they won't come up in a search. Maybe SAS could add this point to their new merchant intro?

From an affiliate manager's perspective, this is certainly something where the manager/program needs to "cover the bases", so to speak.
From an affiliate's point of view, I like it when merchants have factors like this in place which discourage affiliates from signing up.... less competition for me

Do the AM a favor and email them not to talk down to affiliates. The other one that bugs me is not having the trade mark in the keywords so you are not able to find them in the network, just dumb.

Come on fellows.........This gives you a perfect excuse for checking out the merchants web site.........
You can find out what there products are and where they have the big 800 number displayed.
Look before signing up.
I have actually signed up because of their category or merchant name only to find that they have only one banner and no data feed.........therefore no makeapage..........this becomes immediate drop time.
