    Hello and Intro
    Hello ABW.

    Long time listener, first time caller. Well...maybe not long long time. Anyway, I've been doing the affiliate stuff for a year now and I'm slowly getting the hang of it.

    Finally realized that I need to get more involved. I've been reading the boards the past couple weeks and have finally gotten the courage to introduce myself. So if you have any comments or questions, please don't hesitate to PM me or IM at 'pbaffiliates' Y! or AOL. Be gentle with the critiques, I cry easily.

    Thanks and I hope you're all well.

    Scott Markman

    If you're going to spam the forum trying to get affiliates to join your program - you need to talk to Haiko - the owner of the forum.

    You have to pay him to do this. It is not free.

    Welcome to ABW, Scott

    I affiliate with Playboy. I noticed in the beginning you listed individual products webmasters could display on their websites, then for a while Playboy had the advanced user option where the webmaster could browse your website for a specific product.

    I noticed you had the advanced user link capability for a short while but now it's back to a number of products listed by the merchant.

    Is there a reason why the advanced user option has been discontinued?
    Just curious.

    Anyway, the Playboy Store offers a nice selection of products -- something for everyone

    Why don't you ADVERTISE here if you're interested in recruiting?

    Hi Scott,

    Good to hear from you, I mailed you some time back when I noticed an Adware Parasite was consistantly your number 1 "winner" , didn't hear back from you on that, but hopefully now you're on ABW you'll be able to read and learn more about this issue.

    Cheers

    I don't think he's spamming or anything like that. If I came to a forum and introduced myself and was an affiliate manager, I would be upfront with who I am etc. Sometimes I see posts from people who are affiliate managers but they don't list it and I have no idea who they are. It would help.

    Hola BurgerBoy,

    It's not my intention to spam. I came to introduce myself and start getting more involved in the affiliate community. As I said before, I'm still trying to figure out the affiliate marketing. ABW seems like a great place to learn and communicate with the AM community.

    I promise not spam and will not put a single coupon (unless asked) on ABW. Also, I will try to cut down on boob jokes.

    Shalom Rhia,

    Unfortunately after several attempts, we couldn't make the product linking system work with our Playboy store reporting. Just you wait though. It's been a very slow process, but hopefully in the next few days we'll have a searchable product feed available. Info should be in the next affiliate newsletter.

    Boo - bees

    (okay that was my last boob joke)

    I'm going to split this answer session up at the moment. My tummy is rumbling, so I'm going to grab a late night snack. Then I'll come back and answer part 2.

    Howdy webworker,

    I'll look into it, but at the moment I'm not interested in advertising. I kinda just want to hang out and shoot some hoops. Maybe after basketball you, me and the rest the AM group can go inside grab some Sunny D or Purple stuff.

    If our budget allows for it, we'll look into advertising. Right now, I'm just trying to fit in and learn from the group.

    Bonjourno Chris,

    I remember and apologize about not getting back to you. The Mansion contest was launched right at the beginning of me being added to manage the affiliate program. I don't want to use this as an excuse, but back then I didn't know any of the ins and outs of AM. At the time of the contest and your e-mail, I talked with my Linkshare rep and a couple 'yoda-like' merchant managers from other companies. A three of them said it's nothing to worry about, so I took the parasite warning with a grain of salt.

    Chris, I'm looking into parasite sites now and researching. Collecting data, so I can present a report to my boss about cleaning the system of potential parasites. I've been reading over the parasite boards to gather more info and see what I'm up against.

    Thank you TrustNo1. I've tried to be upfront with who I am. There are photos of me in a thong floating around the PB office. I'm not quite sure if those are the pictures you'd like to see. It looks like an alibino with a fur coat on, losing a gamble with a piece of string.

    That's probably TMI. Anyway, I everyone is well.

    Scott

    I know the names of every Playmate of the Month going back to 1955...

    and NONE of them were named Scott! What a rip off

    One of my sites is Vegas-specific, and since your company now has the 2nd tower at The Palms, I'll be adding you soon.

    Hello jackson992.

    Recently, I've looked into merchandiser. Unfortunately, it's a bit out of our budget to add on the feature. If you want specific products, please let me know and I'll create a feed for you.

    ----------------------------------------

    As for the horny buggers in the room, I've taken down all user names and contact info. Playmates are currently being sent to your houses.

    Guidelines for the models are:

    -no touching
    -she must be fed 5-star meals at least 3 times a day
    -twice a day, you must walk her to Prada or Gucci
    -soon after marriage, she will divorce you and take all of your money

    Thanks all and enjoy the Playmates

    I would love a feed. I do have a few of your products up but it is a chore to do them by hand, especially considering how slow LS has been lately.

    "bit out of our budget "

    We keep hearing this "out of our budget" thing.

    Is there more than one "Playboy"?
