.Mac Affiliates Program Denies Me

You know, it’s just bizarre to me that they accepted me for the iTunes affiliate program but not the .mac program. Yet I am a .mac user. Who better to promote their program that the users?

  1. they did the same with mine. Approved for itunes but not the apple store. It is weird they turned you down considering you’re an actual user though. It’s probably a traffic requirement.

  2. I’m very sorry to hear that.
    They’ll likely bump a LOT if not most requests then. Blogs do get a lot of exposure – even though many of us frequent in the same “Apple user circle” … Haven’t heard back on mine. Don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing, or just my spot in request order.
    Such a shame, showing people – who buy Apple, promote Apple, give Apple feedback on apps & hardware – the door.

  3. Yep. Same denial here.
    Doubt anything offensive. It’s live. It’s accessible & in fact already recommends .Mac! So traffic? I don’t know what stats they are looking for but I get the impression only pro sites & portals will qualify.
    Thumbs down for Apple.
