Bob brought up a really good point in the Forum about 1-800 numbers that merchants post on their websites.
In my niche all the affiliates have customer service 1-800 #’s posted at the top of every page for customers (who I directed to them) to call with questions. I send about 200+ prospect a month to them, and in last 6 months only one sale. I tried talking to their affiliate managers but only was able to contact one who said if someone called in with their order they try to find out where the lead came from but I don’t think any of them are. Other then finding a new niche is there any effective was to ensure I get credit for sales?
I’ve posted my response in a tutorial The Problem with 1-800 Numbers
