    Checking my mail at CJ today I just had to laugh. The Palm.com affiliate manager finally answered an email I sent 5 months ago!!!

    Sadly, I had several companies last month that were 4 months in responding.

    Simply amazing to me.

    7-days did you ask him what he did with his Palm? A leading question like that might not have begged a response.

    Actually, I asked him about his datafeed. Evidently I'm not a "prestige" partner, they say. Wonder how fast they respond to emails of their prestige partners? Four months, maybe?

    They have a class system?

    Yep, they shave a full month off their normal speedy response time!

    Actually, after I reread their email, it said "is only offered to our strategic partners".

    Still, it does sound a bit like a class system, doesn't it?

    Last I heard ... Palm's program was run by a CJ employee - Danielle Stone.

    Every merchant at CJ whom I've ever asked, said they never use the in-house system. LIke LS's it's a laugh

    Haiko, was that a hint? If so, good.

    Palm is changing their name.

    I think they have been pretty busy as a company, kinda like the guy assigned to rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic.

    There must be a hell of a need for good customer service common sense type people to run affiliate programs for these companies.

    Well, I have to laugh again.

    I sent the following message, via CJ mail:

    quote:
    It takes you five months to respond to emails???

    Thanks, but, no thanks. I choose stategic partners also....ones that are a little quicker to respond to my email requests.


    and got this back (in one day!)

    No, I can't understand. Quite frankly if I had sent an email response five months late, I would have prefaced the message with a very sincere appology. The orginal email had no such appology.

    Ron you should have more patience, it should be hard running a server on a Palm

    That's funny, they are included in the massive CJ feed that I get each week. I've never put them on my site and never made them a dime. If I'm one of their strategic partners, then they are in serious trouble ...

    I was rejected by Palm, when they first joined CJ. I made www.Palmsnmore.com and about 15 other palm type domains with Cusimano's scripts and have done very well, their loss not mine.

    Boy.. that site design sure looks awful familiar..

    And I always did prefer my Handspring Visor to Palm's units..

    Too bad they're being absorbed.. Sigh..
