How do I activate dead affiliates?

by 11 comments

Over 9,700 affiliates with PDC, all emails went through yesterday morning to their PDC accounts however, no traffic or activity. They are like ghosts. Granite some are a YEAR OLD BUT not all are very old at all. How does that factor? How do I resurrect the dead?

    How do I activate dead affiliates?
    I know a shaman who does this kind of rain dance thingy that raises
    affiliates from the dead.

    I'm not sure how effective they'd be as marketers though. I would think that
    their skills have become rusty with all that decomposition going on in their

    But you could give it a try.

      I would recommend:

      1) You Give them something(s) worthwhile for FREE, and clearly state the FREE and Valuable giveaway in your email subject

      2) Then consistently email them, and repeat #1 in each email (at least for a while) until you start to see some of them "resurrected"

      I hope that helps and Have a Great Saturday!

      Have you tried the Mr Bean trick?

      You need a set of jumper cables and the power supply to a traffic light.

      Of course, I wouldn't expect much from those one year old affiliates. At that age, I had a hard time pulling on my shoes let alone promoting products.

      I tried my own affiliate program once, it is still going not very successful though. The lesson i learned from this is.....

      "You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink"

      Most Affiliates just do nothing they have the mentality that YOU will do it all for them. No matter what you materials you supply web/sales pages,pop ups, banners, mailing list mangers and online training.

      They still believe you will generate their income, with that said you will get those super affiliates who know just what it is all about. They are the ones who will make you the money.

      Try offering incentives to get them going, some thing like a free bonus worth $**** if they make 2 sales. Once they see the money coming to them hopefully this will light that fire beneath them to get them motivated...

    I signed up to PDC at one point and never did anything with anybody
    there at all. Not sure why really, seems to be a combination of things.

    Complaints on the board here that they weren't getting paid by vendors there.

    Complaints on the board here about getting hammered with sales pitches by the PDC people promoting their own products.

    Seems semi complicated to use, I just logged in for the first time in ages and was presented with a video presentation for products as well as a Bonus of ?? allowing me to promote all affiliates in the marketplace or something.

    None of that would probably matter if there weren't another marketplace that was already loaded with products and works just fine.

    Oops, just clicked the "No Thanks" button which then showed the hidden button to continue and now I'm on a 2nd chance offer page and I still haven't reached the area to promote your product yet and I'm not going to continue clicking through just to try and find a product to promote.

    Maybe I'm in the wrong place???

      Thanks all! I will then try the drip method and keep on them with FREE, FREE, FREE and recheck my "enough content" that one of you fine warriors mentioned. Just so stumped as I watch my livehuman panel and very few even reading my emails and hardly anyone getting them from PDC I am sure.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
