My first attempt at Affiliate Marketing – Rejection

Affiliate Marketing

I admit, I spent a lot of time asking why Google dropped me, thus I was sulking. However, I realized that this won’t do me any good so I started looking for alternatives on how I can make money online even aside from this blog. Well, I browsed and I read a lot of forums, blog posts and other landing pages of ebook selling dudes and decided to pursue, Affiliate Marketing.

My basic idea of Affiliate marketing is that…

  • you promote a product from a company
  • somebody buys what you promote
  • you earn commissions from that company

I also have read that a lot of people are using the Ebay Partner Network and so I decided to apply to it. After a few hours, I got an email I got rejected.

Well, I’m still wondering why I got rejected as this is my first time so has anyone joined the Ebay Partner Network and managed to get in? I would really love to hear your experiences about it. πŸ™‚

  1. hey allen! nag apply din ako sa Ebay partner network mga 2 months ago na. na reject din. tingin ko, di pa sila erady i support ang philippines though halos complete na yung list of city and provinces sa philippines. I tried signing up again, ibang address. US adrress, just to check kung ma aapprove.

    after few hours. na approve na. probably, baka next year pede na ebay partner network sa philippines

  2. Well, I dunno why you got rejected, but you could ask them. Or send them a link to this post. Posting about rejection on your blog usually makes their customer service department wake up quickly.

  3. @Deric – Hmm your address is on the US but your IP is from the Philippines, wouldn’t that raise suspicions? So how did it go? If it was successful, I’d do it too lying about my address. hehe

  4. @Paul U – Hi Paul, thanks for visiting. I also was declined from CJ, ebay and pepperjam. I did a bit of research and I think it is better to apply directly to Ebay so that is what I’m going to pursue.

    Btw, the smart ads are from Abe’s (Yugatech) advertising network.

  5. @Ling – The first reason I thought about why I got rejected is because I’m from the Philippines, but seeing the comment of gladita, it seems it is not the case. I did send an email to their customer support about why I got rejected. I hope to get a good answer.

    I was really excited lol, then got I got rejected hehe

  6. Anong URL nung smartads dahil tinayp ko browser ko yung smartads.com pero ang napuntahan ko ay mukhang real estate website eh?

  8. i am just starting out with affiliate marketing. i have signed up with Clickbank and Amazon. i am still reading lots of stuffs on the net about how to be successful on affiliate marketing.

  9. Affiliate marketing is the easiest and the most lucrative way to start your internet marketing career. Once you get the feel of the business you can then venture on to others. And remember, success is not by chance, it’s by choice!.

  10. i tried Affiliate Marketing using amazon, clickbank and others. so far i earn a decent amount of money from them. the secret to earning money on affiliate marketing is none other than lots of website traffic..

  11. the secret to affiliate marketing is always targeted traffic from developed countries like us, uk and canada. affiliate marketing would not give you a good income if you try it on asian internet traffic.
