    Have you actually tried signing up first? How many have you applied to. How many have accepted you, how many are you waiting on. First need to know all that.

    Not sure besides trying to contact the merchant directly about your application. I've had the LS mod help me out a couple times in the past but not sure if they're still doing that. There are some majors that are just hard to get into, I can't get in some myself.

    I've had them up for many years now, don't remember how long it took. When I first started and I imagine others as well, it's a little harder. Back then I took the wear em down approach. I just kept applying until they let me in, sometimes it works. If you can find an email or phone number and try them directly, could help.

    That's stuff I'm interested in myself if you're talking about offline marketing/localized marketing? I started this thread from awhile back with some good ideas if that's what you mean:

    Some other good ones in the Effective Advertising forum.

    I don't have a problem with rebate sites or sites that give a percentage back to their site visitors if it's thru the site. I have a problem if there is a toolbar involved that pops advertising over my site or redirects my initial traffic to a merchant. And for merchants, I think it's stupid for them to have toolbar affiliates that basically just target their domain. Thru the site, I'm alright with and it's better for merchants too, for those that accept those type of affiliates.

    More of a charity site with a percentage going to charity. But some of these types of sites and others, have/some still do, things the wrong way what I went into a little with my last post.

    Trust me, take Trust's advise.

    As what trust said.
    -Apply and keep applying
    -Contact Prog Manager if possible. Email, phone, IM
    -If that does not work, reach for help from other affiliates or program managers.
