Mistaken Affiliate Penalty Happens
There should be a way to handle suspect affiliate fraud and one that wont bring shame to both the affiliate programme and the publisher. Its indisputably hurting to be deprived affiliation especially when you were reaping benefits from your website. I don't know about those who fraud affiliate programmes intensionally, but for someone who is taken by surprise at account termination, it surely cuts to the born. I am a victim to false accusation from an affiliate company that I had gotten exited about because I was seeing a lot of progress.
My story is detailed in two different forums:
First, in my blog where the termination happened. I discovered this when I visited my website from a friends office and all the banners from this affiliate programme were gone. Think of the many pages that I had to reword because they were banner-less. It was such a huge inconvenience.Â I detail this in the post â¬ËAssumes Affiliate Technical Complication'.Â
Second, I had to ask my wife to join this affiliate programme and help her open a website she will own so she can run the adds from the affiliate programme that terminated my account. I detail wife's engagement into affiliate maketing in these two posts â¬ËMy Other Me' Shall Correct my Affiliate Mistakes' and â¬ËHow I got into Affiliate Marketing'
Why should I bother writing this? Who cares after all? What am I all about? I guess the reason makes part of the benefit of having a blog. Bloggers have freedom of expression and whatever is said, people can learn a lesson. My attitude is that â¬Ëin every business one can get a lesson', likewise, I treat my blog as a business and thus a lesson can be learnt from my experiences. If you are a webmaster or an aspiring one, you surely can learn to prepare yourself for the many challenges faced while doing business online.
I know this will be over in no time, but life will go on as usual and for the record, this will be a testimony into my online success.Â Â
