How To Deal with Inactive Rederrals

Be it here at MyLot or elsewhere, when you go through the work of finding referral for your affiliate sign ups and then those referrals don't bother working the program, what do you do? Do you try to contact them and give them a heads up again on the benefits of being an active member or just let it slide? What has let me down recent is that I was asked to exchange sign ups, one for one. The referral isn't active so neither am I. This has happened more than once. I want to contact them and coach them but maybe it is better left to their own accord. What do you think?

I compltly forgot about mine..I have a few here that are inactive...I dont bother with them or even care what they do...You cant force people to do something they dont want to..They are not even making an effort with no posts, so no bother in trying to coach them or anything...

I had a friend who was asking for explanations about affiliate sites and how they worked. He was as clueless as I was. Next thing I know he is barrelling along and doing very well. I don't know how he did it and I asked him for help as I signed up under him but it was not forthcoming so I dropped out. I would love someone to coach me. You could offer. Good luck!

Well, there are many programs out there like this, that you can get the Referrals but to get them to want to work to help you both out is a different story for sure. I am not sure if there really is a way you can make someone want to work for it as well. All I can say is you just need to be viligent and talk with and work with those interested in earning from these type of different sites and go from there. I think finding referrals overall sometimes it one of the hardest things a person can do.

i have tried a couple places to get referals but it never seems to work. either the link will not show up right or when i get a place the link shows up, no one signs up under me. so i've given up trying.

I don't know i never tried referring any one in this site because i haven't paid yet. but a friend of mine who got me in here, kept annoying me to be active all the time. I was so busy with everything else that i couldn't have a single second at mylot at that time. after a while he got tired of convincing me and went back to his usual mylot routine. it was afterward that i got active.and he was forced to a day off..suspended i think.

just let them be. we can't do something even if we go mad or anything. that's their choice.

You mean referrrals, right? I don't think you can chase around every one of the referrals. Some of them may not even check their email ids. So I think it's no use going for a wild goose chase. Just try to make new referrals and forget about the previous ones. Yes, if somebody were to contact you, then give them the proper information and suggestions.

I never have much luck with referrals so not having one is nothing new I did have a few on mylot and another site but only one on each site was active if I remember the one on mylot we become friends but he then got promoted so now he is not active at all for a few years the other site was scam and there goes my referral I guess there is nothing wrong contacting them asking what's going on that's all you can do anyway so maybe worth the try

Hello, In my opinion, I will just leave them alon, because it really happenns alot, you have people that may start the program and for some reason they get side tracted for one reason or another, then you have those who say it is not what they expected and so on,. The ones that really want to do the program, they will usally contact you and that shows you their sincerity, you should never have to chase people to make them do anything, besides them doing the program benefits them as well not just you. Happy My Lotting!

I have tried to contact my inactive referrals but alot of them did not accept my friend request so there is no way to. I have done the exchange also but they are not actiev either. I think it is worht a try to try to get them active but alot of times, I just waste my time too.
