    Hmmm.....let's see...

    Some cigarettes for Haiko.

    Some Cuban Cigars for MarkyMark.

    A cheese grater for Heyder.

    That would be a start.

    Ssanf,

    No one is talking about you, this I swear!

    The private forums are merchant specific (the competition pranavs the ideas posted and this is not GOOD!) and the mod forum is just to make fun of Fred [img]tongue.gif[/img] J/K.

    LMFAO but it won't do you any good because I am not able to get into those forums either. I even complained about it or spoke against it a while ago and was accused of being hungry for information. :rolleyes:

    Seriously though I think they must talk about us. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Coffee and Cigarettes.

    Unfortunately, being from Cambridge, I have been cursed with a taste for the imported varieties which I can ill afford. Even Starbucks doesn't make the cut. Maybe it's karma ~ compensating for (or revolting against)an underprivileged upbringing.

    My friends call me "coffee snob"!

    As to the private forums issue, I don't have any particular concerns myself, though I may feel "left out"; perhaps missing out on beneficial information.

    Haiko - your use of "pranav" as a verb!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I REALLY don't like the locked doors around here. It's not very homey. Sure knocks the heck out of the community feeling.

    Kind of like when your parents closed the bedroom door. You just KNOW there's something dirty going on in there.

    Deelz,

    My Fiancee goes through more Tazo Chai (Not for Resale) in a week than I can not dare buy [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] So I know your strife ... My Sister sent me a Starbucks card ($60) and we went through it in a week ... every morning my baby (to stay such) has to have her three (Must be NY ... she is from GA) cups of "Breakfast Blend" so she isn't a hell cat! :eek:

    As to the Private forum issue ... I can see one really kicking some donkey (for now) ... it is almost automatic (JCWHITNEY) ... once you join and get some sales [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ... I'm sure your in! (This is a Great one!) and yet another one will be TRAVEL related ... so jump on board ...

    What do you mean? You see people being upset or it is a kick ass forum? I didn't understand what you are saying.

    The link does not work.

    I don't want to join any particular program to read the posts. A lot of the best information I have seen has been on threads about merchants I will never use.

    In fact, if all the good information is going to be in private forums, what is the point of hanging around here so much?

    I think I will go see what's happening on associateprograms.com for a while. I'm in a snit.

    Same here. Often have read something that makes the proverbial "light bulb" light up in a thread about a particular merchant or subject that I am not involved with.

    Not answering you directly here ...

    ... But, If an affiliate can market Gevalia Coffee ... why can't they also market xyz {widget}?

    This industry affords us ALL much leway... Let us say I market carrotink.com and only them ... why can't I also publish links to gevalia [example only]? or for that matter ... www.THMedia.net or anyone I select? ... the placement issue is the crux of the game... but who we select isn't! We have many great merchants TD, Overstock, etc ... why not make more with the links to "quality" merchants?

    Holy shznit! :eek:

    They've got instant customised co-branding!

    That, in itself, is kickass.

    Looks like I'm going to be up late tonight; I'm on that like white on rice!

    Thanks, Haiko - if it was't for ABW, I'd have given up on the affiliate angle before I even got [really] started.

    SSanf's point is still valid, though.

    Looks like a draw to me.

    What does this mean? You have to join their program and sale something to get the amazing tips?

    I thought sharing amazing tips was what this board was all about in the first place!

    Nuh uh!!

    Damn, I feel like I am being blackmailed into joining a program I have no interest in.

    They can take their amazing tips and put them where the sun don't shine.

    This is the first really bad move I have ever seen you make but it's a whopper.

    Can you be so kind as to report back on how Alan's MLM Las Vegas convention was and how his "protoge" is doing? As I have noticed that has taken precedent over any REAL affiliate marketing issues! Including Wurldmedia (Morpheus, Gator etc).

    Haiko
    PS. Affiliate marketing not BS MLM schemes are where it is at! MS Mary, Jada, LEADER and many more are making serious $$$$$$ each month, this is NOT BS! It is FACT!

    If you or anyone wants into a Private Forum ... do some sales and email the merchant and you are in! ABW is ALL about making you, or anyone who cares to, MORE money just show something [REAL] to the merchant!

    Ben Franklin said it best ... Empty the coins in your purse into your mind .... and your mind will fill your purse with GOLD! That is what the private forums are for! ... you learn more so you make more! Nothing else! And many competitors have stolen ideas and input from our merchants, so they decide to lock their forums ... what is wrong with that? Do you know that WhenU is here 10X a day everyDay? They read every post ... wouldn't you ... if you were in theeir shoes?

    Performance marketing is just that ... perform ... or stay out of the loop! (or don't fill your purse with gold!)

    PPS. I am trying to help you and all members by interviewing merchants to get the real performers ... the ones who pay... ask Cazzie, or for that matter, Guffy why they joined TD ... and ask them why they are in the top five!

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>This is the first really bad move I have ever seen you make but it's a whopper.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    That is pure Malarkey ... I'll PM (later in the morning) what you could be find in that private forum and you would NEVER say that again! ... Whopper as in HUGE for PROVEN and TRUSTED Marketers ... WTF is wrong with that :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Please, don't bother.

    If it isn't available to all the board members, I don't want it either.

    With all due respect READ my posts AGAIN! This is NOT A GAME this is REAL EARNINGS!

    Not a 91% reversal merchant who knows NOTHING about affiliate marketing! This is about performance! I'd rather have 10 people who know what they are doing then 10,000 who have no blind idea what they are doing!!!!!!!

    Well, that's nice. But, I guess poor duffers like myself just don't belong in that rarified little club of 10 people that you'd rather hang out with.

    So, you all just go off and enjoy your amazing tricks all by your amazing selves.

    Don't worry about us. We'll eventually learn some amazing tricks ourselves without you.

    "10" who are "real" affiliate marketers .. as opposed to 20 lurkers who are competition ... stealing input amd marketing ideas and other valuable input [of a merchant].

    I really don't know. I sort of lost touch because I spent my time here after everyone left CJU. I used to check there daily. Guess, it's time to renew old aquaintances and make new friends.
