    Hi,

    After CWC Affiliates also the Affcorner backend is driving me crazy.

    Why aren't all affiliate links for all brands there?

    Was like this weeks ago so I had this Skype conversation with aff manager Priscilla:

    Apparantly 'shortly' isn't there yet. Also no clue what "right now the banners that will expre after superbowl will be the betphoenix ones" means.

    Sorry if a bit harsh in this post but just driving me insane that I want to promote someone and they are making it so hard for me!:p

    Update: Spoke to Priscilla on Skype and:
    - She was so kind to create Wager Chief & Bet Mania (seperate) aff accounts for me (appreciated!)
    - She wants to react to this thread but her account at AGD can not post (she's contacting Andy)
    - Spots-1 and Bogart (seperate) aff programs will be ready by Wednesday

    Agreed. I also asked Priscilla about the lack of WagerChief banners and got the same response. She did assure me that the old links were still being tracked, but surely if you are launching a new affiliate site, it makes sense to put all your brands in there.

    I keep trying to push BetPhoenix and WagerChief because they're good books and not overexposed, but I agree with Peter-Jan, they not making things easy.

    Yup. Easily one of the most overlooked metrics by new affiliates:

    % offers shown for which visitor does not have account yet (or if (s)he has, via your link)

    This metric should be as high possible obviously.

    The affiliate program is a big mess.

    Links generated from Betphoenix aff. have a %20 added while I have a Bogart link that show whitout %20.

    I made a sale of $5.................but for what ??

    Were is Wagerchief added can not find a thing I am looking for ?

    I do not understand why this program has earned an affiliate guard dog seal !!

    Dear Affiliates:

    I really apologize for the inconvenience. If you need any specific banners for our other brands I would be more than glad to help you out. The reason for the delay is that we are having each of the brands under the AffCorner separate from each other. They will be separate, so you can have your stats more accurate. That way you can see which brands need more exposure and work better for you.

    Right now the sites that are ready are:

    BetPhoenix - Affiliate Program
    betmania - Affiliate Program
    Wagerchief - Affiliate Program

    Sports-1 and Bogart Casino sites will be available after Wednesday. All old tracking URLs and banners are working properly in the meantime. New links will be different so once all pages are up with the new marketing tools I recommend you update all links.

    If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to contact me anytime.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Tryme,

    If you ask me for any specific marketing tools I will send them to you. Just send me your request and I'll make it happen. Do you need more 250x250 banners? Just shoot me an email and I'll be more than glad to help you out.

    Best Regards,

    Priscilla

    Priscila,

    Our affiliate account is a huge mess!!!! Please help.

    I just noticed Aff Corner changed everything. All your sports book links are no longer working for

    Wager Chief
    Bet Mania
    Bet Phoenix
    Sports 1

    It seems all aff tags are all different now. We cannot log in with aff code and passwords...

    May i ask why affiliates were not notified????

    Can you please help us with all these 4 brands!!!


    or should we go ahead and remove??

    Steve

    I also want to ask

    When you changed your whole affiliate backend - why did you not inform affiliates of this?

    Why do you not respond to emails?

    They did send out an email notifying affiliates of the change. I got one on Jan 26th with the subject line 'New AffCorner Software'.

    This read:

    "Dear Affiliates:

    We are working hard to bring only best to your hands. For this reason we have a new and improved affiliate software. This will provide a wider range of marketing tools, reporting and tracking. Due to this software change we want to inform you that your new login will be your affiliate code and your regular password. You will also have to update your banners from the new affiliate system. Although the old banners are still working these will stop working after a week from now. We apologize for any inconvenience caused during the software transition. If you have any questions or comments don’t hesitate to contact me anytime.

    Thank you mate for sharing that!!! Much appreciated.

    We have several accounts - and it is possible this one was overlooked by my partner since he opened that account at aff corner.

    This was the time i know that all aff links had to change. I coud not understand why i was not able to log in..

    Now i know it was because they changed all aff tags and banners.. LOL

    looks like they got 2 months of free traffic.. LOL

    Well i am going to open 4 new accounts to be safe.. and hopefully if we have players in those others they will migrate over.. when the decide to answer emails.. :)

    Thanks mate.

    Steve

    I think this is a serious AGD issue and not notifying when you have to change links should not be appreciated as AGD approved affiliate program.

    changing banners does not mean changing links !

    Besides that there was no second warning etc.

    :mad:

    Although I have not given them any good exposure this issue sure did not make me love them more.

    Yeah it doesn't seem right the way it was handled. But in all fairness I am still trying to find that email that was apparently sent.. Asked my partner. hes looking at all emails to check.

    My issue right now is no contact. emailed them a few time and no reply.

    We spent a good chunk of cash on sports books reviews after they said they could supply reviews for us... so i almost feel i need to promote them to make our money back ..LOL

    If only they would be somewhat responsive it would be great!!!

    Cheers

    My view - and this is a general point - is that they (and Priscilla in particular) want to build up the affiliate side of their business. However, they keep messing up.

    The affiliate software they are using now means that, in effect, I need to sign up 3-4 times in order to promote WagerChief, Bogart, etc as well as BetPhoenix. This is because the affiliate software they are using - which, incidentally costs around $150 - can only deal with single brands.

    They are a good book with a good reputation but they need to get their act together if they want proper exposure on affiliate sites. However, an email did go out and I also think there was a follow up.

    I'm not trying to ignore you here... sorry, have had a sick child for almost 2 weeks now and just got back from the hospital. He is sleeping for a short while.

    Regardless...

    I tend to agree with you and will put a warning on AffCorner until which time I gather enough information to make an informative decision.

    It is difficult to de-certify a program based upon banners, of course, but stealing from affiliates by NOT telling of link changes is a predatory action. So - let me gather thoughts and determine timelines and I will post a sticky in AffCorner's forum.

    New AffCorner

    It's been a long and hard way with lot of bumps in the road. I really apologize for all that you have been going through. Each of our brands will be treated separately. The reason for this is that you can have correct tracking data and reporting for each. With this you will be able to identify which brands need more marketing and promotion support. Old tracking URLs and banners are working. (All accounts set up through them will be under your affiliate code) I recommend you change them for the new ones so your traffic reports work. (click counts) If you don't find the banner sizes you're looking for just send me a request and I will have those sent to you. Also please remember that for login purposes you will no longer log in with your email address and password. From now on you will log in with your affiliate code and password.

    Best Regards,

    Priscilla Rodriguez

    Priscilla,

    Yes i see that now thank you. It was just we had all these reviews made up and when we tried to add them we noticed nothing worked in the system.

    But i do see now we had to re open brand new accounts for 2 of the 4. I dont know where the other 2 went but i guess were basically starting from scratch now..

    I am going to try and log in with all 4 brands and see what comes up..

    a little confusing now with 4 separate log ins..

    Mario and i tried 2 of the 4 and they did not work but i will try again and report back...

    2 of them i guess are brand new now - and i guess will forfeit the older 2.

    Thanks for getting back to us.

    Steve
