I received a ‘telling’ notice from Pepperjam today which alerted me to changes in their list of publisher promotional methods.
Take a look…
Today, we have updated the publisher promotional methods. Going forward, the categories will be:
- Comparison Shopping
- Coupon/Value Proposition
- CPA/Sub-Affiliate Network
- Direct Link
- Email Marketing
- Merchant/Product Review
- Mobile Traffic
- Mobile/Tablet Application
- Paid Search
- Product Feed
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
- Social Shopping
- Web Site/Content
The following categories will be removed:
- International Traffic
- Online Mall
- Pop Up/Pop Under
- Search Engine Marketing
- US Traffic Only
If any of the above promotional methods are listed in your account, they will automatically be removed.
See the differences between the current list and those that are being removed?
Other than the geographic distinctions, I’d call the list items that are being removed ‘useless marketing tools’, i.e. Squidoo pages.
I’d add WordPress.com and Blogspot blogs likewise — which Pepperjam fortunately never listed as affiliate promotion methods – thank goodness.
Seriously, if you are still using Squidoo and do NOT have your own domain to market affiliate products – don’t even pretend to be an affiliate marketer.
Get your domain hosting at Bluehost and they include the domain registration for free.
