    He just isn't a business person and I think he didn't know what he was doing. He says he is losing money. But, my goddess! The choices he has made for hosting his own site and so forth are horrendous. If he had only told me earlier, I could have helped.

    I hope it is not too late to rush in and save the day but I fear the worst.

    This is going to really hurt me until I can replace his products.


    Two weeks and my links on way too many sites go dead!!!!!!

    AND! I have a downline of some really good sites going dead as well!!!

    Nothing else pays as well that I can find, so far.

    LOOKING!

    OK! Here it is.

    IS THERE A MERCHANT HERE WITH AZUR.. PRODUCTS AND AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM THAT WANTS SOME REALLY GOOD ESTABLISHED STORES AND DOWNLINE?????

    IF SO, PLEASE PM ME SO WE CAN TALK.

    If it makes you good $$$, and it's a certainty to close, try and strike a deal to buy/take over/get given the business..

    I took a brief look around and the only site I could find was AzureGreen. I assume this is the company you're talking about because their affiliate page says the program is closed. Maybe you can ask them who their competition is? If anybody should know, it would be them.

    They have a link listing their affiliates, so maybe you can browse those to see what other affiliates are promoting. Why they would divulge their affiliates like that is a mystery to me.

    I don't know if this site will help you, but it's sort of got that flavor of product:

    Thanks for the link.


    Boy, I have to figure a new approach FAST.

    It isn't Azuregreen but a dropshipper for them.

    I do not deal directly with them any more because they are too on again, off again.

    Their program has been all over the place.

    They have been at CJ, SAS, then independant. Then, they didn't want affiliates only dropshippers. Last time they were going to drop all the drop shippers. The just can't seem to get it together. But! I need their products. And, not at any damned 10% either!

    You seem to be on the right track with your content generator. Maybe try some AdWords to promote it. Just gotta diversify!

    SSanf,

    I've been there too - more times then I care to mention

    (Hec, I started in 1989 with only one merchant - who closed shop and retired. I literally had NO products to offer!!)

    But after the initial shock, and scrambling for replacements, I've come back better (read: more money) then before each time

    Which is why I have a lot of different sites now. No ONE merchant will hurt me if they're lost.

    You're a pro. You'll bounce back in the right direction.

    Do you mean 1999? I don't think we really had much of an internet back in 1989.

    Have you tried contacting some of the "10%" alternatives and see if you can negotiate a better %?

    If you can bring them an existing revenue stream (e.g. "I am willing to move the average of x$ of sales per month to you, but would require a minimum percentage of % in order to do it).... someobody might bite.

    You may have already tried that... but, just in case.

    Perhaps Billy Kay was out there in 1989 and he was just way ahead of the rest of us.

    I started in 1989 - with an actual Mail Order catalog - the paper kind

    Ex got the catalog in the divorce.

    I scanned every page and put it online

    Sometimes something better can come out of what looks like a hardship. Hoping this is one of those times for you.

    Your content generator looks like your way out of affiliate marketing. If it takes off the way I think it would, you wouldn't need to rely on affiliate marketing or unreliable merchants or sources for you income. Looks like your chance to go up the food chain.
