In case of problems with affiliate vendors - what to do? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
yeah i dont see you endorsing them personally (same for any vendor), so let the buyer beware... he would have bought the same shirt from Pink even without the SF link, had the same problem, and the only difference would have been the SF lights getting a little dimmer. you could put a Mens Warehouse affiliate up there - it would be universally hated, but the fault of the member if he chose to use it, not of the board itself. Another twist on it would be if a complaint was coming from a member about an affiliate that is also a member (I will pick on FIH cos I see it at the top) - if a member used the FIH link to buy, and had problems with the product, then it would be a public exercise in customer service to solve it for Jon, but still not the fault of the board.

J, just thinking out loud here. In general, I agree with the consensus.

As another way of monetizing the board, google ads have been suggested before. What about using the google ads for general use, and using the affiliates as 'trusted sponsors' or something of the like? You could get Pink, Mens' Wearhouse, and other chaff through the google ads, and actually throw a forum recommendation to the sponsors.

Hmmm...Any takers ???



Seriously though. This is IMO a non issue. Its clearly an affiliate program that advertisers pay for.

Does Andy stand behind the womens products that advertise with him?

AskMen has a rating system for its "Sites to Visits," though some of them might not be paid advertisers. The trouble would be getting people who aren't dissatisfied (or overjoyed) to give ratings.

So you see why most image consultants don't have formal affiliations with retailers.

I recently have bought 3 new Borrelli's. One I had to resew on 2 buttons, another 4 and the one I opened today needed one resewn. Now it is not the button that needs resewing but the threads were wound around the shank and than not stitched through themselves to hold. So the wound threads simply came unwound. I am too lazy to wash and iron my own shirts but sewing on buttons seems to be an art that I need to (and can) acquire.
