Hey, Stop Stealing My Affiliate Commissions!

Don’t get offended, I was not speaking directly to you. I was speaking torepparttar horrible companies who are stealing not only my affiliate commissions, but yours too!

These companies are called “spyware.” They specialize in invading a consumer’s computer through unethical means and then literally replacing YOUR affiliate ID with their own! It is almost as if you never even existed!

Not only that, they even steal your future affiliate commissions by making sure that all future IDs are automatically replaced with their own. Even more, they can make it so that ifrepparttar 145719 consumer goes to a website, a pop-up for a competing website (with their own affiliate ID) pops up and makes it impossible for you to get a sale.

As you likely agree, this is a major problem and it gets bigger and bigger every day. The more we fight back,repparttar 145720 slicker these companies get.

How much are they really stealing?

Would you believe that studies have shown that these companies could be stealing more than 50% of your affiliate commissions! Some studies have shown that it may even be higher, but 50% has been a repeated number in more than a few studies.

That means, as an affiliate marketer, you could potentially be making twicerepparttar 145721 money you are making now.

How does Spyware work?

Spyware is basically a program that consumers will download onto their computer. They usually get it “along” with another program that they download for free. Spyware companies develop freebies for consumers to download so they can invade their computers.

Then,repparttar 145722 software pretty much takes overrepparttar 145723 consumer’s computer. The software can replace affiliate IDs, create new cookies, make pop-ups appear and even steal passwords or other private information.

In other words, spyware companies are alsorepparttar 145724 masters of viral marketing – they spread their disease via freebie information and programs that unsuspecting consumers download.
