Alexa Says No!
Yesterday evening I took the evening off of the SAC because I felt I needed to post to my niche website. All went well as I put together a 1200 word review for some professional quality dog grooming clippers.
Tonight I was going to proof read what I had written before adding the links and publishing, so that I could get on with the SAC.
My plans were scuppered early on when I received an email from Amazon Associates telling me my account was going to be closed down in seven days and to remove any links from my website. Fortunately, I only have three previously set up. The reason they gave was that I had made no sales for 365 days.
This may be true, but I have had the account for around 18 years and there have been several gaps of over a year with no sales during that time. I guess the rules have changed, I just wish they could have waited another week or two before applying them!
This evening has been spent trying to find alternative affiliate programs with alternative merchants that have the exact same product and will ship internationally. This has not been an easy task! I have found a couple of possibles, but I think I am going to wait until my Associates account gets closed down and then apply for a new one.
Until then its full steam ahead with the SAC! Only eleven more posts to write before May 10th.
Keep on moving forwards everyone.
