maxbounty declined me what will make my chances to get accepted better?
what did you tell them?
they approved me on my first attempt with no problems
We are unable to accept your application as a MaxBounty.com affiliate
at this time. Our decision was not a judgment on the quality of your
website, but rather that it was not a suitable match for our current
list of sponsors.
We encourage you to sign up again if your website changes, or after
a couple of months have elapsed.
they called and talked to me on the phone and approved me over the phone
I signed up yesterday and a little while ago I got a call from a number that read "KOWABUNGA" on the caller ID. I didn't answer it thinking it was some gay telemarketer. It was Primary Ads
Thats the owner. Hardeep Kowabunga. did he leave a message?
i signed up for maxbounty this morning and got approved within 10 minutes after talking to the AM
what site did you make them review?
www.besthockeydeals.com and www.knightlyfood.com
Just apply with your best looking site but make sure you add something in the comment field. Tell them that you have a small network of sites that you would like to find good offers to put banners up for but also have a lot of PPC that you do. The PPC part makes them assume that you get traffic without the need of a site so they don't judge you based on your site.
When you talk to them, usually when they call you after you apply (most CPA networks do this), explain that you are building up your websites but also leaning more towards PPC and such. Just tell them that you are still testing and learning but plan to put together some larger campaigns. They usually don't go into much detail and just want to hear you are legit so you can usually flub most of it.
If you get denied and not sure why, call them up! Ask to speak to an affiliate manager to find out why you didn't qualify. And then explain the same thing...you are learning and plan to start doing some PPC. Most will let you in at that point.
Some networks seem to auto-deny based on traffic (of the site you applied with) or some other element but if you call them up and ask them why or explain what you plan on doing you will be accepted.
okay ill give it a try, thanks
