Anyone going to LAC this year? I'll be going, don't know exactly who I should and shouldn't be talking to. I've read a lot of forums, a lot of good press, bad press, but when you're there it's so difficult to sort out the robbers from the good guys. Any tips? What does everyone else do? Thinking I should start my own little black list of people I think are rogues and the reasons why - a sort of overall list of rogue programs and links to all the various forums where they have been bad mouthed by affiliates. It's hard though, sometimes it's difficult to know whether an advertiser is really that bad as one affiliate will tell you good things about them, others will have strong evidence they've been completely ripped off by the same outfit. I guess some affiliates are happy working with the rogues if they're earning money anyway. On my list of who not to talk to at the moment - Ladbrokes, William Hill, 888, Unibet, Betfred and as for casinos I now have no idea at all who is good and who is bad. The only company I can see vaguely good things about is Deck Media - all the others seem to have been rogue for a long time - Affiliate Lounge, AffActive, Star Partners, Bwinners, or are now turning bad. Perhaps when you get stopped at LAC by someone shoving some marketing material in your face, your first question should be - what sort of reputation do you have on Affiliate Guard Dog?
