Got Questions About These Changes, Not Happy, Need More Info - Do Not Hesitate To Contact Me Here
Due to dramatic industry changes arising mainly from the industry's biggest payment processor deciding it no longer wanted to do business with a lot of sites in this industry, I am making changes to my sites to keep the business viable and the advertising quality high.
After looking into the sites affected and the possible issues I decided as a precaution to voluntarily remove that processor from the sites that do not fit with its requirements. After the big down turn in sales I had to start looking for alternative processors but faced the same reply in regards to the business model. The whole industry now needs to make a decision on the next steps and that is why this decision to make these changes was not an easy one but the best one for me and my sites going forward.
These changes will allow not just my sites in this industry to continue but also allow me to promote a lot easier in other areas and bring in some new blood into the arena to see all your sites and affiliate links.
It also enables us to use other payment options that are not currently available to us because of various factors like in built affiliate programs and the fact some sites focus on not just the service but also the opportunity to earn money.
Some changes you may like and some you may not but improving traffic quality and taking the business forward has to be the highest priority. In a way it was either change or close the sites and I really didn't want to do the later.
My Forward Plan
The plan is to make the existing sites a lot more simple, easier and less the same hence the first change of having banner ads available at all sites when they could just be managed from one place.
I also have started changing the sales pages to focus on the service and advertising parts and not the opportunity to make money. There are plenty of affiliate programs out there that are permissible as they are run via an external affiliate program like JVZoo or Click Bank etc and there are lots of income opportunity sites, really we have no need to try be both, why not just be great and focus on one and the service is what I will be focusing on because first hand I know that with good advertising you can make a lot more promoting something else that is dedicated to opportunities etc than you can make promoting a combined site.
This also makes it better more niche quality by attracting more like minded internet advertisers and marketers and less opportunity seekers. By targeting specific members to the site then its more targeted advertising for you all.
The focus then will be more on helping advertisers and working more closely with advertisers and site owners etc. This will be reflected in the things promoted and recommended and also the help and advice can be more targeted.
Paid entry sites will still charge a small entrance fee to ensure only proven buyers are inside and the free entry sites Just Good Traffic & Mail Our List will remain free entry.
None of the service sites will sell upgrades or advertising inside them. Which is why as nothing will be for sale at Just Good Traffic there is no way an affiliate program could work and the site will not interfere with payment processor rules as it will not sell anything directly.
What You Need To Do
Keep an eye on both this page and emails and see whats changing part by part and by certain dates. We will list all important changes here and also send an email out to members of the sites the changes added to the list below effect.
As affiliate programs will be removed at all sites at the end of the month you will need to stop promoting your referral links for all sites except MailOurList and JustGoodTraffic as they will still have a referral program where you can get traffic for referrals surfing or clicking. These sites will not be selling any items so that referral program will not effect our payment processors applications.
Consider exchanging any affiliate commissions in your account to advertising as advertising will not directly be for sale in the sites any more.
What Sites Will Be Changing
Both 7DollarAds.com and this blog/members area will not be changing as they have already been changed to reflect the changes but all other sites will have some change.
The only site that will be closing will be 7DollarSites.com as it is a opportunity site and does not fit with the forward plan of concentrating 100% on the service and not the opportunity as that is a opportunity site.
What Happens To My Memberships & Upgrades
Your accounts on all sites will remain intact. Obviously some benefits of membership will be changing to reflect changes to the sites but all upgrades will remain in place for example, if you have a lifetime top upgrade at Mail Our List then you will still have the top level membership there with its new benefits and nothing more for you to pay there.
The only accounts that will be lost are the ones at 7DollarSites.com as that is closing but they are all free accounts so no upgrades will be lost.
As an example, if you bought top upgrades at say CashTrackBar you will still be top level there for life with its new features and benefits.
Committed To Happiness
I am very committed to keeping members happy so if your not happy with any changes then please send me a support ticket and we can have a look what we can do to keep you happy ie maybe exchange some memberships with other sites etc.
Support Desks & Contacting Me
As the site 7DollarSites.com will close all the remaining sites in the 7 Dollar Network that was run as a separate business will move under the SteveAyling.com Banner and that means the 7DollarSites support desk will close so all support will now be via my support desk here at SteveAyling.com (Top Right Button In Menu).
