Affiliate Marketers Beware! Watch Out For The Paused or Dropped Offer!

Posted on 17 September 2007 by SonHouse

So, I’ve been running a few great converting affiliate offers for about a year and finally have my conversions to a point that is relatively dependable, which is hard to do in this biz, and wouldn’t you know it, I log into my affiliate account the other day to find these offers paused for the next few weeks.

I contacted my affiliate manager about things, and he mentioned that the company is reworking landing pages, etc.  which is all fine and dandy, but why kill the offer to do so?  I’m sure they reached their budget for the month or something, it just hurts the bottom line when something like this happens.

Word to the wise, never keep all of your eggs in one basket.  You need to have multiple offers running at all times.  NEVER get complacent!  If you do, you’ll wake up to find your month in the toilet.  This has happened to me a few times before, so I was prepared and continue to test, test and test different offers with different networks at all times.   You should do the same….
