If you're a CJ publisher, you received news about Commission Junction's Link Management Initiative (LMI).
If not, here's a snippet:
BTW, ‘legacy links' is the new term for your old links.
Publishers' (affiliate) reaction to the proposed change has been primarily negative.
Here's what Helen S. Montgomery, Editor of Affiliate Classroom Magazine had to say when I asked for their reaction to the change:
- The cost of changing millions of legacy links will largely fall on affiliates, who already bear a major portion of customer acquisition costs for the merchants they represent.”
Joel Comm, author of the best-selling Adsense book, “What Google Never Told You About Making Money with AdSense“, said “Ros, it's gonna be a pain!”.
Ok, that's an understatement. 🙂
I can't repeat what Colin McDougall told me, but suffice to say that he and many others are pulling their Commission Junction links (read merchants) off their sites.
What do you think?
