    Tila.com becomes a toolbar - What the h....??
    So, sometime last year, I joined the Tila.com program. As a MORTGAGE QUOTE COMPANY, it was an good fit with my CREDIT site.

    Then, this evening, I get this email:

    ATTENTION ALL TILA.COM AFFILIATES :

    Effective March 31, 2007 TILA.Com Affiliate Program will change into
    Chino's Free Stuff Toolbar. It's so much easier to make money with our
    program from this point on, Our target market will be wider, since we are
    no longer seeking for mortgage quotes. We're only looking for USA
    downloads of our toolbar !!!

    About the new program :

    We will pay you $.35 per download of our toolbar - That's it !

    - Our Toolbar Includes a cookie cleaner, a history cleaner, and a cache
    cleaner
    - It notifies you when you receive new e-mails to your POP3, Yahoo,
    Gmail, Hotmail accounts
    - It has a built-in weather tracker
    - It has a built-in pop-up blocker
    - Instant access to our site from any site on the web
    - Get instant access to useful links

    Rules of the new proram :
    - US DOWNLOADS ONLY PLEASE
    - NON US DOWNLOADS WILL BE REVERSED
    - PROXIES, ROBOTS, OR ARTIFICIAL DOWNLOADS WILL BE REVERSED
    - ONLY ONE DOWNLOAD PER IP ADDRESS


    By the way, we have new creatives and links available for you to
    choose.


    Good Luck and I hope you'll be successful with our new program !!!

    Log-In to your Shareasale account now and get our New creatives and

    Tomorrow, I'll post the emails announcing that Disney has become Hooters, and that AT&T has become the Acme Fireworks Company.

    Nothing would surprise me!

    What's really scary is that Tila is including a "cookie washer" in their toolbar. Uhhhhh - yeah, let's jump all over THAT affiliate program! Hope they pay the whopping 35 cents BEFORE the cookies get washed.

    Surprised you didn't already notice this, the tila.con home page has a CJ link on it.

    "For Home Equity and New Home Loan Quotes - Please Click Here"

    SaS merchant, CJ affiliate. Been like this for a while now.

    Something I probably should have noticed.

    At least now I'm even less sorry to see them go.

    Wow, I didn't expected to be discussed here since I'm just
    a small affiliate program and all, but, it was a huge mistake
    what I did last weekend. It's kind of embarrasing now, if I was
    in your shoes, I'd laugh my brains out. But needless to say, I
    made a mistake.

    I was also contacted by Michael in Shareasale that a toolbar
    program is a NO No, so I'll eventually revert back to the old program.
    Now, the reason for the change and all, was because of the demand
    of Mortgage Leads right now. And we were receiving a ton of rehashed
    and inputted leads from some affiliates.

    I'll put the program back on line, but not at $37 per lead, I'll probably
    open it but with a Fresh set of affiliates and put it on Pay per click like
    what we used to be when we opened two years ago. As of right now, I have 500 affiliates, and only a few are producing and most of the producing affiliates are sending me duplicate, rehashed leads. I'll send out an official notice this morning about the change to all the affiliates.

    By the way, hold off on the jokes guys, I admit I made a mistake on
    the toolbar thing. It'll never happen again.

    Cheers!

    Update : I tried to revert it back to TILA.Com, however, I just found out that there's a bit of problem in reverting it back since it was put offline, I probably need to talk to one of the tech guys in SAS. Program will probably resume tomorrow afternoon or evening.

    If you check out our Merchant Offering page, it has been updated.
    However, the program can't be totally activated, I'm not really sure why, maybe it needs something to be done on SAS end.

    Thanks,
    Kris Pueblos
