Click Bank Vendor Pulled a Bait and Switch
Well lets see, he's added a very prominent opt in so I submit my information and wait for my e-mail. Of course, he's baiting people in with free information. So to make a long story short, I clicked on the link that is In the e-mail and what you know no affiliate link.
So I go back to the page and dig a little deeper. As if that wasn't bad enough on the second page, there's another enticing offer for free information via SMS text messaging. Of course there is no affiliate link associated with that either.
At this point I'm getting a little upset because I have been promoting this guy's stuff for some time, sending him free traffic.
So I figure I'll give the vendor an option of giving me a page link without the opt in or I'm going to stop promoting its product. However there is no affiliate link to be found anywhere and I can't find the product on click bank to save my ass.
So here I am sitting with three websites devoted to this guy's product. All my back links are of course somewhat related to this product directly, and I cant even get a hold of the vendor.
Obviously, he's trying to make it difficult for his affiliates to get in touch with him because it there was a very obvious affiliate link before this update whenever it happened.
I'm going to drop The vendors product and promote another related product, but it's still ticks me off. Will it do me any good to complain to click bank? I think this is a deliberate attempt to get some free traffic from affiliates like myself.
Has anyone else had this happen?
Another thing that really bothers me is that even if I stop promoting this guy's stuff. I have hundreds of Web 2.0 pages out there with direct affiliate links are doing me no good. It makes me want to set up a redirect page for all of my future affiliate links just so this does not happen. Is this feasible, then I could have simply redirected those links to whatever offer I choose to promote instead of continuing to stuff this guy's wallet.
I know I could look into linking directly to the click bank sales page, but when a vendor is obviously trying to defraud his affiliates like this I am not going to promote his product in any way shape or form.
