The theory that networks only glance at your applications is partly correct. How would you feel looking over 410 applications only to find out that 400 of them were not legitimate? That cuts your production time down and does not allow you to focus more time, energy and dedication to the people who are legitimate.
Here are some tips on getting accepted to Affiliate Networks:
- Dont have a website, build one. It's an instant red flag. Another red flag is if you dont have a website then using something like Google or Yahoo will get you denied pretty quick. Fact of the matter is that silly things like that are seen hundreds of times daily. Your best bet is to ALWAYS utilize the comment box located in applications. You better be telling why you dont have a site and what your intentions are.
- Get on the phone - Immediately after filing an application go try to locate a contact number. You take the innitiative not the network. While it's always nice for the networks to do that, I think I covered an important point of all the bull**** networks deal with.
- Dont use the same website 5 times - Automatic deletion in my book. This looks like you used form filling software. I use form filling software but I examine every application I ever submitted so to not allow a silly mistake that looks unprofessional like this. If you dont have 5 websites then dont put anything there.
- State your strengths and intentions - Comment boxes are on applications for a reason. Skipping them shows laziness. Filling them out shows professionalism. How serious would you like your online businesses and account to be taken?
- Use a reliable email client - If I see asia.com or usa.com or mail.com, I automatically delete it. Use your head because aside from all the bull**** spam some networks send you, the really good ones with good Affiliate Managers are going to send you tips that you dont want to miss.
Short and sweet folks.
Nothing complicated here, just a general outline for successful Affiliate Network applications.
