    Unhappy How to hijack affiliates?
    Simple!
    1. Make an advertiser account on a big network. Affiliates will join you.
    2. Now send an e-mail to all of your affiliates that the program is shifting to another network and ask them to open an account with that network. Spam them! Remind them! Do whatever you can to catch their attention.
    3. When the affiliates join your program, you autoomatically have access to 2X of them
    4. Repeat step one and two as many times as you wish and finally run a successful program at a low-cost Network.

    I'm not following at all. How is Network jumping hijacking affiliates? If anything, I think the Merchant will lose affiliates along the way who get tired of having to update their links.

    And if it's the original aff base you are sending out the emails to, it's still the same group of people. Not seeing having access to 2x.

    It would be very expensive. I think CJ has set up costs somewhere around $2000 with a $250 minimum monthly fee. From my understanding, Linkshare's min monthly fee is in the thousands of dollars.

    Your idea would work, but would be expensive!

    Okay okay... I must admit that was a poor display of my frustration over another e-mail notification by a merchant who is changing network. I put up their banners only yesterday and today received the notice that they are migrating from CJ to LS. This is the second merchant for whom I'll have to redo all the work put in.
    Come on... why do these guys change networks at all? The only thing that came to my mind was that they thought that every network has a different set of affiliates... and hence once they get access to the thousands of affiliates at CJ, they'll probably want to set up an In-house program. I fully realise they will be paying the one time setup fee... but later they wil have access (or thats what I thought they feel) to all the affiliates interesting in promoting them.
    Did I sound that weird?

    No. We just all want to know how to hijack affiliates (as it really was a bit unclear)!

    And they sent me three reminders to join the program at LS. At CJ inbox as well as the external mail.

    There are many many reasons why Merchants switch Networks, but I don't think it is because they think there is a different set of affiliates at the different Networks. Unless they are a really, really, really clueless Merchant.

    Just wanted to add that the Merchant's who *do* have a clue and are planning a Network switch will do it this time prior Q4. Nothing worse than the Merchant doing this is Q4.

    There have been previous threads of this forum "urging" merchants to switch from working with CJ and in light of all the upgrades not exactly working right now maybe this had something to do with their switch.

    However I do agree that a much more timely notification would be better and maybe even a period of time of overlap between the two networks.

    And just for the record CJ's cost are massive and the min monthly fee/payment is $500.

    If a merchant was to leave CJ, why would they go to Linkshare of all places!

    Talk about not improving your situation.

    I agree with you completely we are with CJ but I could not see Linkshare as an improvement. I was just trying to play devils advocate because there could be a reasonable explanation.

    Just to clarify I think the affiliates were pleading with merchants on CJ to join SAS not LS.

    Sorry for the confusion.
