The other day I saw an interesting e-mail that ties into my last post, Beware the Scandalous Wenches in Affiliate Marketing.
The YMulti guys forwarded this over, and I thought it was relevant to this issue of dames and damsels in Affiliate marketing.
You may have received this email if you are HealthConverter.com’s list. Below is the e-mail:
Hot Affiliate Manager Here :-P — Hey!
My name is Cheri, and I just wanted to send you all a quick introduction to let you know that I’ve been hired on to work with HealthConverter.com as an Affiliate Assistant. … Which means, I’m basically your worker-drone slave to help you get through this tough marketing process. ;-)
If you’d like to get to know me a little more (because I’m sure some of you are like, “Who the heck is this chick?”), I actually have a personal blog that you can take a look at just to confirm that I am a living, breathing person: http://www.heycheri.com
If you have any questions or need help with anything, I am totally here for you! You can easily reach me via Email, AOL instant messenger, or Skype.
Maybe it’s just me, but it looks like HealthConverter.com is flaunting chicks to get traffic. It looks like they just got a random blogger chick to pose for pictures. I didn’t know HealthConverter.com was a modeling agency now. Maybe she slimmed up on those acai berries? “Stand there and look pretty, Cheri”
First off, what the fuck is an Affiliate Assistant? I mean, they have Affiliate Managers. Why not just make her one? Does assistant get coffee and donuts for affiliates? To me is sounds like Affiliate Manager interning.
Then notice how the “anything” is highlighted. That was legitimately highlighted in the e-mail. The innuendo is thick.
Now, I got nothing against Cheri. I don’t know much about her. Her blog says “get on my level” which I found amusing. She rocks the ‘haters gonna hate‘ gif on the bottom of her about me page. Also a plus.
It just seems to me that HealthConverter is playing the ‘if we hire enough hot chicks with social media exposure, then more affiliates will come’ game. I heard HealthConverter is hiring at least 3 new girls off of this list.
On Women and the Affiliate Marketing Industry
To clear the air, the last post “Beware….”, was not about me. I’m not bitter at anyone. Just trying to give young guys some advice on what to look out for. My game is tight, son. “I got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one.”
Anyway, I got an instant message from another female in the industry that found my post amusing. She agreed with most of the points, and said that a “few bad apples spoil the bunch.”
That is very true in affiliate marketing. There are many, many, females in affiliate marketing that treat this work like their career (which it is in most cases.) They take it seriously and treat people as if they were in any other industry like medical or construction. (I know a real down to earth chick that has done very well in the male-dominated construction industry.)
No one wants to lose their job, especially over some drama where everyone finds out you’re a slut, boooooooonnggg!
These females work hard and would love a level playing field without any pre-determined notions about women in this industry. They don’t like that these nappy-headed ho’s come in, cause a lot of drama, and give a bad name to all the other females in affiliate marketing.
Cat fight, anyone?
Anyway, just remember that fellas. You’re here to do work, and so are most of your female affiliate managers. There are definitely some salty, devious bitches that will play games with you. Just stay away from the ditzes that help you in no way besides being a dick-tease. (unless you’re a natural-born ladies man) ….
