My $26 commission earned from Commission Junction - How to get approved by CJ.com advertisers after they reject you

I just logged into one of my Commission Junction accounts and was glad to see a nice $26.16 commission sitting there from a sale I made a couple of days ago.

Researching further into the sale details, I learned it was related to the Bradford Exchange, which sells chotskies and knick-knakcs and jewelry and stuff like Ashton-Drake.

I'd written an article about some jewelry deal on the Bradford Exchange, and apparently people are still finding it and buying stuff through the links.

When Commission Junction advertisers reject you...

Great Travels DealI've also made sales through Groupon -- only after getting rejected by Groupon initially and trying again to get approved by them through CJ.com.

That whole experience led me to write this detailed "Rejected by Commission Junction advertisers like Groupon? Try, try again to make some CJ.com monies…" article to help tell you how I got into the Commission Junction and LinkShare advertisers (many of them) that initially rejected me and then ended up approving me later and making money for me.

Hope that piece helps you, and let me know in the comments section your experiences with getting rejected/approved by places like Commission Junction, LinkShare, Share-a-Sale and other referral companies.

Amazon Associates program seems the easiest to get approved for -- and unfortunately for some in states like California and Illinois and other states lately, the easiest to get kicked out of. I pray Ohio never takes that bad online tax sales route.
