    Back in June 2003 a Gozing rep emailed me offering a better commission if I signed up to their in-house program (the rep contacted me directly through my site). The rate was $0 on sign up, but $2 for *each* survey taken by a member I referred.

    10 months later I've got 300+ referrals with -- get ready -- $0.00 in commissions.

    Is it possible all 300+ of my referrals were not in the demographic they needed? Possible -- but extremely unlikely. Especially considering the Gozing rep visited my site and contacted me via my contact page; he had to have seen some potential there.

    After a month of unanswered emails to the affiliate manager, I've switched back to the CJ program.


    Morals of the story:

    1) Be very wary of in-house programs.
    2) Don't wait 10 months to figure out that your links aren't converting.

    I have seen very few commissions from their cell program also
    Tough for any of their leads to actually stick
    Co-incidence?

    Hard to say, but 300 is real low in the survey game...very low. However we have had mixed results with these type of offers....And wow, $2 per survey for the life of the referral?

    Surveyman: I agree that 300 is pretty low, but in 10 months time not one of them was eligible for any surveys?

    My sign-up stats show a fairly standard bell-curve for age distribution and a 60/40 split for women/men.
