    or not.

    I'll have to give the navigation stream as the site is in flash frames and I can't direct link to the pertinent parts. If you have ActiveX set to prompt, you'll need to allow as the site is in flash (no baddie installs or the like will happen).

    Go to http://www.ecomworks.com (These guys are probably managing Merchants for many affs here).

    In left menu click "Alliances."
    Center screen should say "Unparalleled Partnerships." At the bottom of the center screen, click the green "More" button. Give it a second after the logo load, and a text description will automatically load. Keep clicking "More" until you've gone through all their "Unparalleled Partnerships."

    Now go back to the left menu and click "Clients." This would be Merchants they represent. Keep clicking the "More" button until you've scrolled through them all.

    Finally, put 2 and 2 together.

    eBates, LookSmart, MyPoints, SchoolPop, UPromise. Hey... They forgot Parasites-R-Us!

    Is this supposed to be a network like CJ, SAS and LinkShare where people like us can join? Or, is it strictly for parasites? Not that I would ever touch them with a 10-foot pole of course!

    "EComWorks has alliances with the most reliable technology providers. We have chosen these relationships carefully to ensure our clients receive the highest quality of service."
    It sounds exactly like S. Messer marketing spin. Or, maybe they are working together...

    They are an OPM. The Client link shows some of the merchants they manage the affiliate program for.

    I would think that the folks you mentioned (along with the ones you didn't) are the 'unparalleled partners' they are having participate in the affiliate programs they manage.

    Sometimes it's good to know who is really managing a program you are joined and what their philosophy as to quality affiliate partnerships is.

    It's the company who bounced the Cooking.com checks just before leaving LinkShare for CJ.

    Yes, and in fairness to them, they did make it right. The check went through the second time when redeposited, and they reimbursed for the bank charges. On the otherhand, that was the check for LS January commissions, and I'm still waiting for the check for LS February commissions.

    Also, when Cooking.com went to CJ they dropped ecomworks, completely. I really like the new affiliate manager (Sarah). She's been wonderful since taking over the program. She calls me on the phone and really makes an effort to help me grow my business.

    Good catch, Kellie. Quite the rogues gallery.

    Do they have any "legitimate" partners so I can be sure to stay away from them?
