What's up with these other affilate networks?
I want a topic that I already know something about and have an interest in. I don't want to research and write a bunch of articles on a topic that does not interest me. Latter when I got the money I can outsource the article writing to somone else, but right now I can't afford that. Unfortunately clickbank doesn't have any topics that interest me. None that would be profitable anyway. So I wanted to look somewhere other than clickbank for products to promote.
The problem I'm having with that is that other affiliate networks that I've checked out are more complicated than clickbank. I checked out plimus, linkshare, and cj. They all require you to register or sign up before you can even look at the products. When signing up plimus asked for my company name. I don't have a company, but it wont let me leave it blank. Why would it ask that?
It's a required field. When signing up at linkshare and cj, they both asked me for my website information. Cj even asked for my url. They wanted me to describe my website and, give current monthly unique visitors, and other stuff I can't answer because I don't have a website yet. Why would I when I haven't even seen the products yet?
This doesn't even make sense.
I signed up as a publisher on these networks. Advertiser was the other option, but they said if you promote people's products on your site or blog than you're a publisher. What is up with these affiliate networks? Why do they ask questions like this and require you to answer them?
Now I can't even finish the sign up process. Could someone explain this to me please. Thank you.
