    Rick, I agree that's what most programs would do. Some of them also scan the website to make sure that it's not an existing affiliate. That helps.

    There are many affiliates who have converted this way. It's strange, but I have to say that just coz one receives multiple emails (coz he owns multiple websites) is considered as spamming, I must have committed bigger crimes

    For example I had once contacted a coach driver to convert him into an affiliate. It took me a lot of persuasion to convince him that it was a good idea and a lot of hand holding and support to get him started as an offline affiliate. But I am happy to say this guy did make it and has been active in the affiliate community since then. I guess most of you would be working with him. And if you don't you should as he conducts coach trips to a top casino = good player value. Plus he has good online traffic too.

    If spamming and borderline spamming is ok for managers to recruit affiliates, then you must also say that borderline spamming techniques are also ok to use to get players.

    Geez, I must have committed bigger crimes....

    There are few things that I can think of in this business that p**s me off more than being asked to join an affiliate program of which I am already a member.

    I keep a 1-to-5 star rating of all properties that are listed at The Online Casino Gambling Directory, and when this happens, I immediately reduce the star rating of all of that affiliate program's properties by one star. I also send an email to the sender explaining the reduction. IMO, the care (or lack thereof) that an affiliate program takes with of its own affiliates is an indication of the care that its promoted properties will take with their players.
