In regards to my previous post, I feel I need to make a follow-up post. I obviously made a post before thinking.
I received a phone call from Azoogle wanting to make sure we’re on good terms. I mean I’m pushing some traffic their way, but I’m not a 6-figure affiliate by no means. The phone call was mainly to make sure I wasn’t have any problems with my affiliate manager and I’m not. I was just a little upset at the time and should’ve never made that post.
However, I won’t delete it. I feel that if mistakes are made, that person should own up to it and say I’m sorry.
So to the network owners, my AM and the fellow I just got off the phone with, I wanted to give an official apology to say I’m sorry and that previous post was made out of haste. There are no hard feelings towards you guys, I will continue pushing traffic your way.
P.S. For those wondering, I’m leaving names out of this for a reason. I never wanted to call anybody out.
My affiliate manager at Azoogle really pisses me off. I contact them saying hey, I’m pushing volume with a certain offer with another network. Can you beat their payout? I only asked this because I had ran a decent amount of traffic their way with this same offer a couple months ago.
Her reply was show me your creatives, tell me how you’re promoting it, etc… I politely tell her to fuck off. I know this advertiser has their own in-house marketing team and that’s the last thing I want to do is show them my creatives. As you can guess I didn’t get my payout bump.
A week passes and a few thousand dollars later she emails me saying the advertiser wants to know the exact details of my campaign so I give her something a little similar but not even close to what I’m running because they want to make sure I’m promoting it legitimately. I felt like I had to do this considering its my best offer right now so I did what I did. Of course her replies were very prompt here.
Then an hour passes and I remember our past conversation where she asked for my campaign details in order for me to be given a substantial payout bump. So I remind her about getting that payout bump now that I’ve revealed my campaign details. Haven’t heard from that bitch since.
I fucking hate Azoogle. But if them bitches pay me, I’ll push traffic their way. Talk about a cut-fucking-throat industry.

One thing that really disturbs me is when people come to you for advice about a subject you have demonstrated knowledge about and completely ignore it.
Let’s take the most recent occurence for example. A friend comes to me and says my computer crashed what can I do. How can I fix it, how much will it cost, etc… My first question is do you want to save the data on your harddrive or not. Of course they do. I suggest they buy a $50 Western Digital harddrive and let me borrow their computer for an evening or weekend and I’ll fix it free of charge.
Couple days later they call me asking what is the difference between a netbook and a notebook. I explain. And we talk about talk about the pro’s and con’s of both and what they will be using this computer for, blah blah… They finish the conversation by stating that, “I don’t know, I’ll just give it to ____’s husband. He can fix it for me.
Um, didn’t I just offer to fix it for free? You either want your data (which will cost $50 for your new harddrive, but you’ll have an extra one when the computer is running again) or you don’t and I can fix that in an evening no problem.
Man that pisses me off.

I would like to make a post to all thank all the veterans in the country that have given their life, a limb and/or their time so that I can have the freedom that I have today.
My stepfather is a Vietnam Veteran and he makes it an absolute point to walk up to every person he notices wearing a Vietnam hat, Korean War hat or whatever it may be and thank them for their service. He hated being drafted and sometimes doesn’t even mention that he served, he just wants to tip his hat and say thank you every chance he gets. I wish I could be half the man that he his sometimes.
So once again, thank you to all the past and current Veterans. I cannot thank you enough for the opportunities that you’ve given me. One of my favorite quotes ever is, “If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you can read this in English, thank a soldier.”

After watching the TV202 interview Wes did with Ryan Pamplin from Ryactive it dawned on me that reading WickedFire is killing my productivity. I have to stop it.
I find that anytime I become bored or just want to find something to do I head over to WickedFire and check out the new posts. This is holding me back. I need to start doing more and reading less.
