    Thumbs up GREAT Article for affiliates AND affiliate programs
    I searched and didn't see this posted anywhere else so I'm assuming this is not yet posted. It's a great must-read by SugarRae on her site entitled

    How Not to Get Sales Increases from Current Affiliates (and Piss Them Off)
    http://www.sugarrae.com/blog/how-not...piss-them-off/

    If you're a skimmer or ADHD-type (like moi at times), toward the end in 5 gray boxes, she summarizes the "five things you should do if you would like to keep your sales as low and your affiliates as frustrated as possible..."

    It's as informative (and empowering) for affiliates -- about what you should not have to put up with -- as it is a warning for affiliate programs.

    You might also want to read her post from the fall about unethical tactics by some affiliate managers (many are probably well-discussed here) but it's also a good read especially for us relative newbies and total newbies:

    I have not seen "How Not to Get Sales Increases from Current Affiliates (and Piss Them Off)" on ABW but "How Not to Gain New Affiliates" was posted somewhere.
