No I can't say I have. Have you?

They have contacted me to start in the oil business, completely irrelevant to my niche.

I was approached to advertise a business on my website and so far no results.

I have been asked to write reviews by a number of affiliates.

My experience similar to Liz. I recently joined a network for my Golf website and the network keeps offering me new affiliates that have absolutely nothing to do with golf. I just delete them.

It's important to keep the players straight. It's not the network which is inviting you to those programs - it's the individual merchants.

Part of that can be which network you're referring to here. Some have weak publisher bases, so their merchants have no choice but to contact literally everyone in hopes of recruiting a handful.

Usually on the better networks, you're only contacted by programs which make sense or occasionally by rookie affiliate managers who don't know better.

Thanks for the clarification, Jeannine. For the record ShareASale /Awin are a top networks.

Thanks for this explanation, Jeannine.

yes, but for either totally unrelated niches or someone who wanted me to promote just one object from his site and then minimum payout would be 250$, that was never going to work sadly.
