    Angry Referral fees for recruiting new publishers?
    I just spoke with CJ to ask them about recruiting new publishers for CJ. I was told they no longer have an affiliate program for that. However, when I go to affiliate info sites which offer affiliate company reviews, there is always a link for signing up. These links always have an affiliate ID as a part of the link.

    If they no longer pay for recruiting new publishers, why do these CJ links still work? Could they have a special recruiting program for super affiliates that the rest of us are not told about?

    Very disappointed here since I was about to offer classes for folks in my area to instruct them about affiliate marketing. Without recruitment fees it's not worth my time to teach others..... sigh.

    Wow, that is news to me. I don't recall every getting word they would not honor this.

    Added: I just checked my account and the Recruiter Program is still listed as active and there is even a 30 EPC amount listed (but nothing for the 7 day).

    But I don't think I have any active links for them or ever refered anyone to them.

    So send them to networks that DO pay. Make Sense?

    It's called the CJ Recruiter Program and there is contact info. on their Advertiser Detail page. Sure looks like it's still going on to me.

    I have searched for the CJ Recruiter Program several times and cannot find it. Where would I find the Advertiser Detail Page? Thanks.

    Did the above exactly as recommended. This is the message given after the search, "Sorry, No Results Found". Even searched links and products. Tried all variations such as "CJ Recruiter", "Recruiter Program". Still nothing.

    Looks like only certain publishers can recruit for them! Just dunno....

    IIRC, they said something about closing the program to new signups a year or two ago.

    I don't know what they'll actually do if someone signs up through that screen, though! I would think it'd be prudent to let 'em, but CJ isn't always logical...
