I received the following email from Amazon today to state that our account with them has been terminated:
We are writing to notify you that your Associates Program application has been rejected and you will no longer have access to Associates Central.
This action was taken because we have not yet received qualified sales activities from your account. As a reminder, Accounts that have not referred three qualified sales within in 180-days of sign-up are automatically rejected.
You are free to reapply to the Associates Program at any time, but we recommend only doing so if your website receives consistent traffic.
We wish you the best of luck with your website in the future.”
Because of this, I have spent several hours removing all the related links from Ringmania. This does not mean that you will no longer be able to buy Amazon products via the Ringmania website as it does not affect the UK version.
I’m sure that I will sign up with the global site at sometime in the future which will enable us to feature many more exciting products that are just not available anywhere else. Hopefully traffic to ringmania.com will increase dramatically and enable me to affiliate with the International site again as soon as possible. In the meantime, I hope everyone can remain patient until business improves.
Around six months ago, according to Alexa, ringmania.com was ranked as the 17 millionth most popular site in the world. Currently it is roughly 2.6 millionth due to my ongoing efforts. I would like to improve this greatly and really need your help. It doesn’t mean you have to buy something and it won’t cost you anything apart from a few minutes of your time. All I ask is that you promote the website by sharing it as mentioned below. It would also help if you visit and click “Like” at our Facebook page.
Please help by reporting any Amazon links
Please let me know if you spot any links directing to Amazon.com at The Ringmania Online Ring Store so that I can remove them or redirect to the UK website. I think I have already changed them all but in case I missed one, your help would be much appreaciated.
It would also be a great help if you could share any of the posts at our website or even this blog with your friends on social media. Just look for the share buttons like the ones below and click on the ones that you have already joined. If for example, you don’t already have a Twitter account or any of the others you can sign up via these buttons too. This would help greatly in gaining more site traffic and will certainly give me more incentive to carry on building the “Ringmania Empire”
