    Vivid Racing - Not A Clue
    Another AM without a clue of how to handle an affiliate program.

    We want to say thank you to everyone for their continued efforts. Vivid Racing has been on a consistent growth streak and we look forward to sharing in that success, with our publishers.

    With that said, in efforts to cultivate better relationships with our ACTIVE publishers. We have decided to institute a quarterly sales program. This program will enable us to focus on those who show serious interested in growing with Vivid Racing. We are going to be looking at the last three months of sales. If a publishers has not made a sale in the last three months, they will be removed from our program.

    We are excited to be able to focus solely on those who want to partner with us. We want to work, and grow, with those publishers who are willing to work, and grow, with us.If you have circumstances that will inhibit you from completing the above requirements, please email them to me directly.

    If you have suggestions about our current incentive based program terms, or our quarterly sales program, we would love to hear them! We are by no means perfect, so we welcome suggestions of any kind.

    Starting August 1, 2013 Vivid Racing will be a more committed and supportive advertiser. We look forward to working with you!

    Thank you for your time,

    Maybe affiliates do have your links out and have not made a sale because of Google. Not because we are not trying to make sales for you.

    So in three months you will get an email saying they want you to join the program because you are a good fit. Then six months later you get the first email, rinse and repeat.

    Evidently this Affiliate Manager is young and inexperienced. I wonder if either her boss or the owner of the company understand the potential harm she is doing to their affiliate program by broadcasting such an email. Word "does" get around in this industry and the "attitude" expressed in that email may keep some potentially great affiliates away - far away.

    Hmmm... Only 4% commission with crap numbers and a bad attitude toward affiliates. Yeah, I'd say you're right.

    30-Day epc = $2.10, 7-day = $0 - yep, a growth streak.

    Starting August 1, 2013 Vivid Racing will be a more committed and supportive advertiser.
    Until then, they don't give a damn?
