17 replies
Dear warriors,


I have subscribed to venusfactor website to be added in their white list in this link : venusfactor.com/affiliates


So hey have sent me this message
Hi,


Hey, my name is Brad Howard, and as part of the group that publishes the Venus Factor System, I want to welcome you to our partner program.


I won't be emailing you a lot... ONLY when we have something worthwhile to share.


No matter your goal, whether it's maximizing the dollar amount of your traffic...


... or even if you're looking to send people to one of the best, if not THE BEST place for your subscribers and readers to take their results to the next level...


... you're in the right place.


Rest assured that we take BOTH of these responsibilities very seriously.


After all, if we can't maximize your dollar, we just aren't helping enough people.


Period.


We are continuing to assemble everything you need to create effective, wallet busting campaigns, as well as continually running split tests on EVERYTHING to make damn sure we're gobbling up every dollar we can on your behalf.


If you haven't noticed, VF is one of the HIGHEST converting products on Clickbank.


Not only that, it PAYS OUT HIGHER.


If you need anything at all to help you create your campaigns, just reply to this email and Jackie, our superstar JV manager will get you hooked up lickety split.


Again, if you have any question at all, she either has the answer or can direct you to someone on our team that has the answer.
ALSO, before I wrap up here (and this is very important):


Venus Factor has now moved to a whitelist model to ensure our affiliates are in compliance with our Terms of Service.


In order to be approved to promote Venus Factor we require the following:


1) All potential affiliates must read, and AGREE IN WRITING to our Terms of Service to be approved before any new ID is added to the whitelist.


If you missed it, the TOS can be found on this page: venusfactor.com/affiliates/


2) Further, before we can add you to our whitelist we require that you provide us with a detailed description of your intended mode of promotion INCLUDING all urls and explanation how you'll be sending traffic to those urls, paid media and other creative and images, networks you plan to run on, and all other specific elements pertaining to your campaigns.


3) As well, we need your Clickbank ID in order to add you to a whitelist, therefore you will need to send us that ALONG WITH your promotion specifics and agreement to comply at all times.


Please note that being added to our whitelist does not guarantee you will remain on the list moving forward. We will be routinely monitoring affiliate practices and if we find you are in breach of our Affiliate Terms of Service you will be removed from the whitelist immediately and permanently.


If you still wish to be whitelisted after reading our TOS, then simply reply back to Jackie with your agreement to the TOS stated in your own words, your complete promotion details, and your CB ID, and she will have our team add your ID within 48 hours.


Please note that any application not including all of these THREE requirements will not be considered further.


Once you are whitelisted you will receive a confirmation email from Clickbank at the email address you used to register with Clickbank. You should then be able to send traffic to us through your regular Clickbank hoplink.


So go ahead and reply with the 3 items listed above and Jackie will get you hooked up.


Cheers

    They spelled it out for you very clearly. If you don't know how to follow their simple directions, they're not going to want to whitelist you.

    Did you "agree in writing" with their Terms of Service?

    It quite clearly states that, and I suspect you did not follow this simple step.

    If in doubt, write up a Word document stating that you agree with their ToS, print it out, then sign it, and send a scanned copy to them via email.

    Regards,
    Daniel

    If you missed it, the TOS can be found on this page: venusfactor.com/affiliates/
    At the bottom of that page is the agreement form. Check the box and enter the same email address you used to communicate with them previously.

    Looks pretty straightforward to me.

    Just ignore these intrusive demands.

    As a Clickbank affiliate, you have no obligation whatsoever to provide such compromising information to any vendor. As long as you adhere to the TOS of Clickbank, there is nothing to prevent you from promoting any product you wish including Venus Factor. Stipulation #1 is frivolous, and both stipulations #2 and #3 are not only unnecessary but also suspiciously self-serving. It's not a good idea at all to ever reveal your methods, traffic sources, or sites to vendors. They often are your direct competitors.

      As such a vocal proponent of CB, I would have expected you to be aware of this...

      According to CB, the vendor can establish "Exclusive Whitelists" such that only selected (approved) affiliates are allowed to promote the vendors' products.

        The Spanish and French versions of Venus Factor on Clickbank do not have such onerous requirements to divulge your marketing methods, traffic sources or website properties. In addition, there are excellent alternative choices available on Amazon. Otherwise, I would recommend to always avoid vendors with such intrusive demands. There are always alternatives.

        Promoting under the radar of similarly intrusive Clickbank vendors is well thought out advice and a sound marketing strategy.

        Excellent! Although this is for different demographics than Venus Factor.

      Actually, this is wrong. I just went to clickbank, logged in, found venus factor and clicked promote, this is what I got.
      This vendor requires affiliates to be pre-approved before being eligible to earn commissions promoting their product(s). Interested affiliates should request approval from the vendor at Venus Factor. If approved, you will receive your HopLink via email and can immediately begin promoting the vendor's product(s) and start earning commissions.

    Really? You skipped over this:

    Just ignore their demand and proceed on your promotion and see how it goes when you get sales for them

      Maybe you should spend your time at your J.O.B. (and your time on their internet connection) addressing THEIR mission, rather than your own.

      Use your OWN internet/computing resources and time for which you are not already being compensated by your employer, to pursue your outside interests.

        I agree with you, but your statements don't apply to me.

    Just Print out the Terms and Conditions Bottom state I agree write your name and then sign the agreement. scan and send them.

    In regards to the them asking you promotion method its because many affiliates use very cheap traffic sources and make the gravity very low. You see if many affiliate promote and not sell the Gravity of the product lowers and therefore the product suffers.

    Thank You

  • Venus Factor has good statistics on CB. Tried being an affiliate for that product but promotions were done on facebook and we actually paid ads to build a list of audiences. Sadly, FB banned the promotions of the product even when we tried masking it with a domain name that redirects to the hoplink. Same goes to another weight loss product that's also popular on CB. Both were disapproved for sharing on FB pages.

    Anyway, this is just an FB issue based on experience that I wanted to share. Regards!
