WTF, Amazon?

On July 24, 2014, in Make Money, Marketing, by LuCuS

WTFApparently Amazon is making enough money that they don’t need help from anyone else to promote their products. Either that or they really don’t give a damn about anyone else which is more likely the case. Since 2009, I have been using the Amazon Associates program to monetize some of the websites that I own and operate, including this one. As an example, on this very site, I have written numerous reviews of products and always make sure to include links to my Amazon Affiliate account whenever I write those reviews. I have also written guest posts for several other websites where I review different products and, of course, link to those products on Amazon so that I get paid for purchases made from people clicking on those links.

Now, I’m sure that Amazon has updated their affiliate terms of use since I first signed up for an account. However, I am being honest when I say that I haven’t read it since I first read it back in 2009. Being that I haven’t read it in so long, I have forgotten pretty much everything mentioned in it. But, since I haven’t had any issues (until now), I honestly believed I was following their rules. After 5 years of promoting Amazon and sending them business, they decided to close my affiliate account, to withhold any & all outstanding payments, and to ban me from the program for life. And, it isn’t for any reasons you would think. Let me explain.

“Be Right Back” Android App

On June 29, 2014, in Android, by LuCuS

Be Right Back Android AppHave you ever wanted to send auto-replies for incoming text messages? My latest Android app allows you to do that. With “Be Right Back”, you can create a custom message that will be auto-sent to anyone that sends you an SMS text message.

The app will only send one reply to each incoming number until you have either stopped and restarted the responder or have selected a new message to reply with. This will help keep down your number of outgoing messages and will prevent users from getting in an endless loop where both users have the app running.

All incoming text messages are still delivered to your SMS inbox and you are still notified as usual.

This app is great for sending auto-replies when you are driving, sleeping, working, in a meeting, in class, etc… and don’t have the ability to grab your phone and respond right away.

Check it out at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prodigy.mobile.android.berightback

* Coming soon
- Time / date fields for scheduled auto-replies.
- Auto-replies for email.
