Get Approved on Affiliate Networks
Get Approved On Affiliate Networks
The last few weeks I have been expanding my affiliate networks that I like to use. I’m a creature of habit, I tend to stick with what’s working. But there are plenty of good performing offers out there by some of the newer affiliate networks like MaxBounty Network but you best be prepared before submitting your applications.
Many of you have talked about how difficult it has become to get approved on affiliate networks. It use to be easy to get approved, all you did was enter your email address, where to send payment, who to make the checks out to and you were ready to start placing affiliate links on your sites. Not now, today the affiliate networks require you to fill in information about you, your web sites, how your going to advertise for them and most importantly they want to actually talk with you and phone verify your account.
This new phone call method actually scares the heck out of many people. Many of you have asked me to help you, statements like.. What do I say? I’m afraid. I’m going to freeze up and not know what to say. Can you give me some advice on how to get through one of the phone call interviews?
Well, I like many of you have been turned down too, even this week I have been turned down. I think it’s quite funny sometimes because I’ve probably been doing this longer than the person interviewing me but I don’t reveal to them everything I have done or I’m currently doing. I just want to get approved to their network so I can make us both some money. I really feel their new filtered techniques are hurting them more than they know but that’s a whole new article in itself. But there are some things we can do that will help us get approved on affiliate networks we apply to.
The single best snippet of advice I can offer you is to get prepared for their questions before picking up the phone. Have a plan, know how you’ll be promoting their offers, what type of offers do you like best, make sure you have a nice looking web site too. Write some notes down and keep them by the phone where you can refer to them quickly when the phone rings. But the method I like best, is don’t wait and worry about the phone call, make the call yourself before they have a chance to. After filling out your application pick up the phone, your notes and give them a call. They hate calling just as much as you hate having to go through it, you’re just another name to scratch off their list of calls for the day. But remember, some networks are not going to accept you anyway, maybe it’s your traffic type, not sufficient, your business is too new, etc. Just accept it and move on to the next one, if you think like me it’s going to be their loss anyways.
