    Hmmm. They were at Linkshare for what, 4 months?

    I know I spent a full week full-time changing out their links, and probably still have old CJ links up here and there.

    This job sucks sometimes.

    When merchants jump back and forth so quickly it really makes me wonder if it really was that bad at the new place....

    If it wasn't, what would be the point in leaving it so soon?

    Oh I can see several reasons for switching back. A better deal (good salesperson at CJ). Contract violation causing the contract to be voided thus they need to move back to CJ. A simple lack of understanding the new network's interface and wanting "the old and tried". There are more...

    DISCLAIMER: I do not I know why Strawberrynet is leaving LS for CJ again and I am not insinuating that there was anything negative involved. I am simply speculating.

    I wish they'd participate here and also provide an external datafeed. I remember they had a top line of cosmetics.

    Click apply program on the 29th Sept and was told that the merchant will review before approval. Till now no approval but pending status. Cannot change any link as yet.

    Now LS links are all dead, what to do while waiting for the approval.

    Strawberrynet should allow auto approval for those affiliates who have been with them since cj and LS and now back to cj. I just do not understand them.

    They want quick sales since they announce the double commission increase till 15th Oct and yet we cannot change the links over pending their approval.

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Maybe it's like me and phone companies:

    - I get offered a good deal to switch
    - I switch
    - When the benefits of the good deal run out, I switch back to my preferred provider

    It mightn't take that much effort to switch affiliate networks, just cut and paste your banners, and search/replace tracking code?

    My application was manually rejected on the 2nd and now today I received an offer to join and was immediately approved. Can you believe it?

    This happens every year about this time. Merchants jump around to different networks causing so much turmoil as we move into the holiday shopping season. Some of the merchants that have moved to new networks have simply created the opportunity for me to drop non-producers.
