    Advertising On ABW
    Hi Everyone,

    I just joined this community today!

    I was wondering if any of you have paid the $70 to post a thread about your affiliate program in that new programs forum and if so was it worth it?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    It all depends. Are you running a clean program? Are you competitive in your niche? Do you have affiliate-friendly practices in your program?

    If you run a good program, an announcement (or email blast or forum) here is one of the most cost-effective ways to reach affiliates. I wouldn't be surprised if some merchants see more than a 1000% ROI on the money they spend here.

    If you're a CPA Network or if you're infested with parasites or if you're making a lot of mistakes with your affiliate program or you're just pushing a get rich quick scheme, it'll just be a waste of your money.

    I should have asked that first, Michael. You're right. I still like to operate under the assumption that everyone is on the up and up, which they may not be.

    And it depends on whether your program fits the type of product / service our members here promote.

    None of you who responded looked at his program. He did a New Affiliate Program/Announcement. I won't' link to it, but you can see details in his post there (or check out his homepage).

    Sorry Adam, but I was only referring to those who actually responded here and gave him the benefit of the doubt.

    Hound: His announcement was well after we replied. I had seen it by my second post in here, but chose to ignore the topic.

    EDIT: I meant to say AFTER we had replied, not before....

    I didn't know
    I didn't know that you could pay $70 to post your affiliate program under a new thread. Could a moderator tell me how I can take advantage of this? and also if our affiliate program (niche parenting audience) would appeal to ABW members.

    Winnie, see http://www.abestweb.com/advertising or for that $75 offer go to http://www.abestweb.com/paid.php however, I must ask you to stop dropping links outside of any paid [by you] advertising post, they are not allowed and you will be IP banned if it continues.
    Continued Success,
