I just received that news in my email. Someone - who doesn't have the guts to identify themselves by the way - just informed me of this fact. Affiliate Showcase is a scam!
It seems they read some of my blog posts on affiliate marketing. If you have read them, then you know that I am a huge fan of Ken McArthur and his Affiliate Showcase. I recommend it every time I talk about affiliate marketing.
I normally don't respond to anonymous emails. But this one upset me greatly since I have known Ken and
have been a member of Affiliate Showcase for a number of years. It's how I got started in affiliate marketing. In Ken's own words: If you've got 5 minutes, he will show you how to plug into hundreds of products that will pay you commissions of up to 50% or more - and the best part... You don't even need your own web site! And I can vouch for the fact that it will work - if you do!
My guess, if I could ask my mystery emailer, is that you are one of those people who sign up for something and then sit back and wait for the money to come in, but don't want to do any real work. I'd be willing to bet that you didn't promote your site in any way. Any opportunity that says you don't have to work at it is a scam! Any REAL opportunity will take at least a small amount of work.
Please do all of us who strive to earn decent, HONEST, livings online a favor. Actually put some effort into your next business. Really pay attention to what you read and listen to the advice of those who, like Ken McArthur, have become successful and want to help you do the same. Try some of the techniques they suggest. Then email me again - and tell me how successful you've become. I'll be waiting to hear from you!
