Affiliate Network Application: How To Get Accepted
Here it is… You are applying for the 5th time in a row to a big affiliate network that you really want to join, after being rejected the 4th times before. Since you think it was really unfair to reject you without any explanation, you decided to create a new email address and re-apply. This time may be the right one…
Sorry, but if you’ve been rejected 4 times already, something is definitely wrong and you are most likely going to get rejected the 5th time too.

Here are 5 essential steps to take when applying to any affiliate network and be almost 100% sure to get accepted.
Have Your Own Domain
If you want to be taken seriously, you must appear to be serious about making money online. If you can’t even spend $10 on a domain registration, you will not appear as someone reliable. Don’t be cheap and register your domain before applying to join a network.
Use Your Domain Email
One of the reasons to use your own domain email is to appear professional as well. Who is going to give their trust to someone using gmail.com, yahoo.com or hotmail.com ? I wouldn’t!
The second reason is fraud prevention. Networks are facing a huge quantity of applications from people who do not even own the domains they are applying with. By using an email address with your own domain, you are showing that you do have the ownership of that domain.
Setup Your Own Website
You don’t necessary need to have thousands of pages on your website, but you should at least have 2 or 3 pages presenting your company and the areas you are working in.
Don’t Forget Your “About” Page
Having an “About” page on your website is absolutely essential. It is the best way for the person reviewing your application to learn more about your business and yourself. Take some time to craft it nicely and make it interesting for your reviewers.
Contact And Information
Another essential element you should have on your domain is some contact information. It could be your personal name, your company name and address, your company email, a phone number. Fraudsters are generally hiding behind anonymity. By putting your name and contact info out there, you are giving proof that you are (or intend to be) running a legit business.
Setting these shouldn’t take you more than a couple hours and you will be amazed by the positive results it will have on your applications to affiliate networks. I personally followed these steps and I have never seen one of my applications being rejected since then.
