One of the last remaining super affiliate networks where an “expert” claimed to have the secrets of affiliate marketing, has come to an end. These networks, promising huge payouts with “famous affiliate marketers” running the show seemingly came and went, but Eli Aloisi’s network lasted a little longer than most, because his personality seemed to keep most affiliates on his side during public legal and ethical battles that often overwhelmed networks.
He told me in an interview that he “started when I was 15 (1995). I found a chatroom with a bunch of colocation and server providers who did internet marketing. I thought it was awesome and stuck around.” You can read the full interview here.
While they claim they will pay their affiliates, at the same time they also poised blame on bad advertisers, saying that “there are unfortunately always a small percentage of advertisers who ditch out on their affiliate bills leaving the affiliate networks high and dry” and that things have been really hard for almost a year and a half.
The company was very much free of legal troubles in an industry full of lawsuits — we however show that Eli Aloisi was sued in 2017 under laws commonly used against mafia defendants. USA Dietary Supplements, Inc brought a cause against him, claiming that he was conspiring to defraud them with other companies and created possibly illegal charges on credit cards to inflate sales.
Wishing them well in their future journeys.
