Setbacks with affiliate links

Last Update: October 12, 2015

So i posted the other week about waiting for replies to some of the affiliate companies id signed up to. Well im still here waiting, and getting really frustrated now has i feel this is a major setback.

After a good start, set my site up, working through the courses and believed i was doing well, currently i feel a little deflated and want to get back the full enthusiasm i had when i started.

Ive by no means threw the towel in, but i wanted to think by now i would have heard something back from these companies. Anyway I hope everyone else is having lots of success, best wishes!

Hi Steve, I've been accepted for at least one that I didn't know about. What's affiliate malls is that a bit different, kind regards and good luck.

Top of the morning to you, Wayne,
Hang in there . . . just concentrate on developing your site and content. (^_^ )
I had to email a couple of mine 2 or 3 times before I got a response.

Remember to put your shoulder to the wheel, your nose to the grindstone, keep your ear to the ground . . .

and if you can work in that position, thou art a better man than I, Gunga Din ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Don't get frustrated Wayne. If you site is too new some affiliates won't accept you. Also some do not respond to let you know that you've been approved.

For instance I have an affiliate agreement with Guitar Center. In order to get it I had to go through CJ (formerly Commission Junction). I filled every thing out and I waited and waited and waited.

I was very discouraged after weeks so I went back on CJ to look for another affiliate to sign up with and low and behold ... I was approved and had an active Guitar Center program. The same happened with Zzounds through CJ. No email no response but one day it was just active when I checked CJ.

I'm not saying this is what is happening with your situation but it may be possible.

ROCK ON!
