Who's the right affiliate?

7 replies
I have something of a dilemma.

About three months ago, I joined this forum. The person who inspired me to join is also on another forum, but it's a membership forum - pay to play. I said "I'll join that one when I have enough income from my online business to pay for it."

Later, that forum was recommended in general by another member. I thought "yeah, I definitely need to join that one, once there's enough income."

A couple weeks later, that same member directly recommended that I join that forum. I said "yeah, I'm planning on it, just not right now."

I joined the forum's opt-in list, as an interim measure. I've been impressed by the material they send out.

Now I've had a third Warrior indirectly recommend that I join that forum. This Warrior has massively impressed me, like just now, and I looked at my income and said "okay, I was going to wait a little longer, but I can afford to join."

But who referred me to the forum? I first heard about it through one person, then was told outright to join by a second, and ultimately made the decision because of a third. When they want to know who sent me there... what do I say?

    If you saved all the affiliates recomendees emails and links, simply see who wants to offer the best bonuses and sign up from their link. IMPORTANT!
    Eat [delete] your cookies first dude!
    or it won't matter whose link you chose, the last cookie takes the biscuit.

    If it's something you can use right now, buy it, if it's just for storing on your hard drive till you get time to use it, leave it off the agenda.

    Don't buy today, what you don't intend to use tomorrow! ( my Momma says! )

      No bonuses. The only person who gets anything is the affiliate. It's simply a question of where to direct the credit.

        Sounds like you need a three sided coin here. Or a dartboard. If you play Scissors-Paper-Rocks in the mirror with yourself you'll never make a decision.

        Can you just join it outright, no affiliate sign-up?

        The first one didn't close the deal. Ditto for the second. The third?

        I hope it's not WA your talking about here. That would be a waste of money for you. Not for everyone, just saying.

        How about telling me the Forum you're looking to join, and I'll talk you in to it. I was a closer at a car dealership back in the '80s, I know some tricks.

        Well, if there are no bonuses, YOU should be thankful to the first person who introduced you to the program.
        The others have merley been endorsees of the same thing.

        So, the credit is due to the first invitee.

        Just my 2c,

        But I'd question, why are they all eager to get your wallet out? what's in it for THEM ? and whaat's in it for you?

        Sounds like an MLM feeding frenz to me.

    The first one! It was he who introduced to that forum and you were interested to join, but could not due to whatever reasons.

    This should work as Finder's Fee.

    Affiliate software was invented to eliminate your dilemma!
    Usually the last person to get the click will be given credit, so just let the software figure out who that was.
