    MINDsprinting Affiliate Program Is Shutting Down (for a bit)
    Hi ABW!

    Thought I'd drop a note to let you all know the affiliate program I was running for MINDsprinting is being shut down. We are busy transitioning our site over to a free, ad-supported model and we hope that when that transition is done we'll be up and running with a new program, possibly on a new network, and possibly with an OPM.

    Either way though, I've grown fond of this place, so I'll be sticking around.

    Interesting site but I have several questions. Why would you shut down the program during a site conversion?? I had this done without my approval on a program I ran several years ago. It was used to break a contract and move the program to another network. That's fine but it trashed 6 months of hard core recruiting and relationship building. I had taken that program from $80k per month to $250k.

    I tried to find your program in LinkShare but to no avail. Is it a private program run by the network? I could not find your program via their search or in various categories.

    Thanks for the question Chuck. Two reasons. First, our LS program has not been paying the bills, so stopping paying network fees was a crucial step for our small company. We may not be ready for a new affiliate program for a couple months or longer (though I'd hope sooner), so we had to cut them off when our contract came up for renewal. Second, a little bird told me we might be moving networks...

    As for finding the program, it has been hidden as of a couple weeks ago to stop new signups...

    Thanks for all the kind words everyone! We are very excited for our new offering and I hope I'll get to share it with all of you shortly...

    Either way though, I learn something every day over here so I'm not going anywhere for a while.
