Question Anyone notice decline in revenue for MAILBITS?

Is it me or does it seem like the conversion for revenue generated for mailbits is about 20% down this month! Does anyone have any reason why this is happening or is it just because of the sudden down turn in advertising dollars and the economic market.

I've noticed a significant drop in Tell-A-Friend revenue, but I believe its because they made some changes to the process which make it harder to get a conversion.

I noticed a decline last month and the beginning of this month, but I've been doing well lately. Today was my all-time high at $48.75 for the day.

I know that you only get paid for each person once, but for how long does that last? Is it permanent, or can you get paid due to the same person using your mailbits at a later date?

Mailbits is suppose to reset their servers once a month so that old emails can be reused again! But I really doubt they do it once a month, they probably reset once every two months so we earn less!

Huge drop for my site, my ratio is 15%.
That is terrible compared to the 35% ratio of previous months. If any one finds anything out please post it hear! I wrote them to find out and they said everything is being tracked the same as it always has...They must be having a big problem tracking the uniques or they plain old changed the system and are not being honest about it.

Reply,

Thanks for contacting me. We are aware of the problem, and we are working
diligently to resolve the issue. It seems that something has happened since
our recently downtime last week. Be sure that I do understand that this is
a serious issue that effects your payout at the end of the month, so I am
busily looking to correct this problem. If you have any other questions or
concerns, please let me know.

Thumbs down

Not only with the low conversion rate but a lot of the emails aren't being sent out to the intended receipients. And when it does go through, it's like 2 to 3 days late.

Does anyone have an update???

I think that the bonus for this month should be atleast 20%, I'm losing huge amounts of money! Inconsistencies are very stressful!

For the Mailbits program, they should definitely improve their HR, its almost impossible to suggest anything or get feedback! I think that the fastest email reply I've gotten back was 3 weeks!

Everything has been doing quite well for me lately, last weekend was terrible, as was yesterday, but I'm back on track today and have been averaging more earnings with less work on my sites than I was last month. My unique ratio on the sends is up by about 2% from october/november (I hardly used it last month so it wouldn't be a fair comparison).
