Yeah, it is called 'Impact' I found them when I was searching for my products online and realized a lot of the companies I review are exclusive with either them or Lowes. Lowes is harder to get in with.

Sorry that happened to you, seems like they took a lesson from Amazon.

I'll be glad to help you find alternative programs on Awin or ShareASale. With all of our niche merchants, we have just about everything you can buy online. Was there a specific area you focused on?

Sorry to hear you are experiencing this, I have to say, I haven't because I tend to 'boringly' for some it seems stick with tried and tested proven over time affiliate ventures which pay nicely on time and have done for 17 years or so.

I only work with a couple in the MMA niche. The rest of mine is through WordPress

Lucky lucky. Well, Smart. I'm learning. These programs are really cutthroat

Some but not all. The secret is to choosing, not hundreds or several, but those with either a synergy or relevant to your niche and how tested they are.

The other big, big secret, is to build your list using an autoresponder, which pays a nice affiliate commission, because then no matter what happens with the ventures you choose, your autoresponder will pay you month after month, year after year & ...

Ultimately, that becomes your online income, which in time rises.

I explain this to my students this way. Think of your Autoresponder as your body. Your arms and legs are the affiliate ventures you choose. When one fails you simply stop promoting it, but rather promote your list

Doing this, within 12 months, as long as daily activity is done, then you should be looking at close to Laptop lifestyle.Fact

Hi Crystal, it seems to be happening all over. Some companies just don't seem to get it.

They're following Amazon like lemmings over a cliff. Companies who rely on their affiliates but don't value them are just sowing the seeds of their own demise.
I'm sure you'll find a better programme quickly enough.
Wishing you much success with it when you do.
Cheers
Rich :-)

The sad truth. Thanks Rich. I was sad to see it because I just reviewed a few products that have ranked well and Home Depot has the best prices on them :/ I looked at a sale and was like whaaaattttt the bejesus is going here? Only to see the notice pop up like "pop I screwed you over hahaa"

But like you said, I'll find a better program soon enough.

Wishing you all the best too bud. Beautiful family you have there :)
