    Every LS Affiliate Please Read and Respond
    Does anyone like Synergy Analytics?

    I have NEVER read a post anywhere from any affiliate who said anything positive about it.

    Why does LS not think of or listen to their affiliates.

    I personally HATE it - don't even know what most of it means.

    Can we have a vote on wether LS Dumps Synergy Analytics?

    I would like to know what you all think.

    Linkshare doesn't care what you like! Who are we to think that they might consdider our feedback when making decisions?

    They have millions of dollars invested in SA and for them to admit that it is a useless, cumbersome and redundant application would be for them to admit a mistake.

    Linkshare does not admit mistakes. They never have and they never will.

    It is our fault that we do not know how to use their overcomplicated and useless application.

    i gave up on the "beta" some time ago as too time-consuming and nonintuitive.

    I see it is running out of beta so some day when I have a lot of time and I'm fully awake I'll delve into it again.

    I just want to know who owes me and when I'm getting paid. All the rest is managementspeak!

    You have so many thieves, caskback, loyalty sites and other parasites kissing LinkShare fat ass every morning. They are all treated as VIP and sit in the board room to tell these idiots at LS how great they are. These brown noses have no problem with SynergyAnalyics, they don't have to look at their f@@@ reports to know how much they stole from other affiliates.

    Deja Vu - Will not work.

    The only way to show your appreciation to LinkShare is to hit them where it hurts - money. Don't work with them, avoid their merchants (Many are there just to take advantage of their affiliates, anyway)
    Believe me, you can make money without these major networks.

    The only Synergy Analytics function I'm using is to check the merchant payment every pay period.
    To me, it is a big wasting of money for LS to develop this fancy financial system. I'm sure most of us care a lot more on when we get paid, how we get paid, is tracking fully functional than a fancy, complecated financial model.

    LOL - I have always wanted to know the value of this outside of Merchant Payments, and Affiliate Payments...

    I would love for someone to give me a step-by-step of practical stuff that SA can do.

    SA is a great example of a cross between Vaporware and Bloatware...

    Zeus, I will continue to promote any merchants who continue to send me checks in the mail regardless of what network the merchants use [as long as money comes in].

    Tracking is important (it would be nice if Synergy Analytics could add value ) but an actual check trumps everything.

    Do you want to remake LS in your image??? This is not a democracy.

    You said that you don't know what most of it means and I seriously doubt that "Synergy Analytics" has much impact on my or your sales. So, who cares?? If you don't like the way a company does business, then find another source. It is not up to any of us to redesign someone elses' business.

    As someone said before, it is the check that you receive that counts. Cash it with a smile and get on with life.

    I'm really not thrilled about the upgrade. Does nothing for me and no real improvement. The whole thing is still way to complicated, especially for new affiliates.
