GoDaddy Just Lost An Asset
I just received a notification via Commission Junction that my application to join GoDaddy's affiliate program was not approved.
They did not disclose the reason why, but CJ has assured me that it is only GoDaddy that rejected me, and not them.
Okay, fine. They don't like me? I don't like them either!
The only thing that I am thankful for with this incident is, I got reminded CJ exists. I was a part of the network many years ago, but due to busy-ness with other opportunities, I lost my connection with them.
You may like CJ, one of the best affiliate networks out there.
Okay, back to GoDaddy topic...
Why would someone try promote something inferior to WA's services?
I have this goal with my website to help fellow Filipinos who are not yet ready to join WA create a money-website on a shoestring budget. As we all know, Starter Membership is not available in the Philippines.
In my mind, I'll help them get started with affordable services first (like Hostgator + GoDaddy), and then later guide them to WA (transfer site to WA) as an upgrade option for them once money starts coming in.
And with the plan to help them get started with a shoestring budget, I was thinking of recommending GoDaddy for their domain. Unfortunately, this G seems like not needing me. (They don't need sales?)
Sometimes, I wonder... from where these affiliate programs are getting their guts to turn down affiliate applications?
What they're actually turning down are "potential assets" of the company!
It's their loss... not mine.
I just reminded today that if I need a cheap alternative to WA Domains, there's still another one... I am still associated with Namecheap's in-house affiliate program!
So, it's GoDaddy's loss, not me, or not mine. (Tonque out)
