Ran into A Pot of GOLD!!!!
So all that trouble I was having with the FTP program and the company I was trying to affiliate with turned out to be really awesome.
It turns out the the program is actually an affiliate network "Avant Link" and they have some of the top leading marketing companies in the industry.
One of the affiliate programs (the one I wanted the most) offers 20% commission
All that work, worry and stress turned out for my good!!!!
Thank you so much Welshy for walking me through the steps of setting up the FTP program and the rest of the WA community for letting me bug with my paranoia cause I was really scared to follow the steps of connecting with this program, but it really turned out for my benefit and I feel truly blessed :))))
