    Merchants that make me want to PUKE!
    Seriously! What should be the first thing someone sees when they go to any merchant's site?

    Their logo - at or near the top

    International Star Registry: Name a Star for Someone Special | Unique Birthday Gift - Buy a Star Name Today

    No International Star Registry logo anywhere near the top - but on the top of every page is this huge banner for another site, YourPersonalSong

    WTF???

    I went to their contact page to ask if we get commissions on songs, and that page is the same HUGE song banner, a phone number, and a text link to... the song site!!

    And I just confirmed with the Network, NO, affiliates do NOT get commissions on it.

    Aargh!

    Those are the types of merchants you can send to Affiliate Management Trainers (or just let me know directly) and we can outreach to them to help them get a better understanding of their strategy and how this industry works.

    So... they are going bust, and passing on their goodwill to another of their companies. Makes sense!

    ALWAYSFORME is another one
    Started off good, brought at least 15 visitors to their site, generated about 3,000 a month and sales, then they expire me.

    They do this because I already have a lot of traffic so they figure they are going to make the sale no matter what, so I will be removing them from my site or replacing their link with a competitors.

    Anyone know a similar competitor to alwaysforme
