Hi @Ernie A. , welcome to AffiliateFix! Thanks for joining us.
When it comes to promoting and recruiting here, you need to follow the instructions below and the policies below.
You are not allowed to solicit members for your business unless you have an official listing in our Resources area. The owners vet all businesses, and their reps, before issuing an approval and vendor credentials.
Please refrain from directing members to your company until such time you are approved and issued your vendor credentials.
When it comes to pitching your business and services, you will need to become an approved Resource and listed in our official Resources section. This is a requirement and not an option. This is a simple and easy vetting of vendors in an effort to protect our members from illicit people and businesses.
This is a requirement and not an option! Do not solicit members until you have an approved vendor credential issued to you.
The vendor applications are generally reviewed Monday through Thursday with a 24 hour turn around in most cases.
The vendor listing and the representative credentials are free. However, if you plan to have additional reps recruiting members, then you will need to upgrade the vendor account.
Once you are approved, please follow the policies and guidance listed below.
How To Get Your Resource Listed - You can apply here to have your company, products, and services listed in our official Resources area. When accepted, you will have three tabs in your profile. One for your primary business description. The second tab for reviews of your business (this appears when you receive your first review). The third, for on going discussions and promotions.
Business Centre - For forging business relationships and company promotions. Do not over up threads here (no artificial bumping (bump)). You need to be an approved Resource in order to pitch any business related threads here. However, members are allowed to post here when searching for a business relationship, so it is a good idea to keep an eye on this sub forum.
Do not solicit members in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum. This forum is for member to member transactions only.
Do not spam forums, posts, threads, member profile pages, or our personal messaging system.
All other areas of the community are for contributing and responding to threads. Contributing actionable information in appropriate sub forums and helping members is the quickest way to get the attention of the members. However, if a member explicitly asks in any thread or post about products or services you provide, then please do engage them and explain what you offer and how it can benefit them. Only if they ask!
It's generally okay when they introduce themselves as vendors in the introductions threads, this way we can give them immediate direction to help them get off on the right foot. We prefer it that way instead of them ignoring an intro and going straight to a pitch fest in the other forums.
Thanks, always nice to know the members like you are paying attention and looking out for the community!
Attention: "role based name" email prefixes such as support, webmaster, info, contact, forum, service, affiliate, admin, traffic, partners, marketing, etc., for our member accounts are not permitted. They are acceptable for a vendor listing, but not for the member email. This is due to bulk email processors scrubbing them for delivery due to extremely high bounce rates. Please apply for membership using a personalized email prefix. Something like firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we discover you signed up with a role based name we will give you only one message to change it. After 3 days your account will be removed if the email is not changed.
