    Question Bogus or Interesting Proposition?

    ================================================
    May I speak with the lead Affiliate Manager?

    We track affiliates and media buys, and see through links of ad and publisher networks...it's built specifically for affiliate recruiting and merchant targeting, and I'm certain we can help grow your affiliate program.

    *See all of your compeitors affiliates, with contact information
    *See their banners and text link scheme
    *See ads being delivered trhough affiliate networks
    *See competitors' affiliates that are also using selling space through Google adsense
    *See the marketing schemes of top affiliates, and share it with your affilaites
    * ............ and so much more

    Please let me know with whom I should speak about this.

    Many thanks,

    I like the first bullet-point best: "See all of your compeitors affiliates, with contact information". Not sure who "compeitors" are, but if they are "competitors", this is like a dream coming true!! Watch out, competitors! I'm gonna get lists of all of your affiliates soon!!

    I did some web searching and found the company. They have some screen shots that purport to show where merchant's clicks are coming from (and quantify them).

    I have no opinion on the value of a service like this. I can't think like an AM. It makes my head hurt.

    You're sophisticated. I've intentionally left the name out...

    we got a LOT more than that...

    their syntryx is new, but their old tricks go back quite a ways and have old and new ties to some very interesting parties... valueclick/mediaplex/cj, digital river, interadnet, giant head, email data source inc., party poker, empire poker, mgm casinos, never blue media, performics, partner centric, firenetworks (founded as privatecast), vertical traffic (gaming related media buying agency in Israel), drill.com

    there's so much, that i can't tell what all they're doing - they could be perfectly legitimate business operation that smells like roses. but as i looked at people who are on their executive board now, they all have pasts like firenetworks (Gil Alter, cofounder of syntryx/drill and company office)... here's a snippet about Gil's past company called firenetworks...

    "FireNetworks provides email-based customer acquisition solutions for marketers wanting to integrate powerful dynamic email technology, online customer acquisition services, and email marketing promotions"

    smells like spammer double talk to me...
