Many places using income access have several properties and you have to query each by itself. That is annoying and I rarely check the stats there. Just don’t have the time, I like an overview.
Income access itself is able to show many properties at once, why not the other programs using the software?
Affiliate Club uses Netrefer stats, and so does Cashcade (GetMinted). I’m making decent money with each of those programs, so obviously Netrefer is doing something right. ” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” /> The interface is well designed and easy to use. As soon as you log in, everything is displayed right there on the main page. This is different than an IA system, where you have to go through 4 or 5 pages to view the stats you want. And then when I do get to the page I’m after, I usually see a “0,” or a negative balance, or something weird like a player depositing and then not playing through all of his money (or any of it at all).
When I started promoting Ladbrokes through Income No-Access, I sent hundreds of visitors, but none of my traffic converted. After a little over a month, I switched to Ladbrokes’ own affiliate program, and within days I had a 2 depositing players. Maybe it was a coincidence.
When Intertops switched to Income No-Access, I lost all of my old players, and I stopped getting new depositors immediately. A while later I switched back to the old Intertops system, and viola, I started getting new depositors again. Maybe this was a coincidence.
Other people experienced a similar situation when Wager Profits switched to IA tracking. (Why they did that is still beyond me — the standard RTG system worked just fine.) Maybe this was a coincidence, too.
Other possible coincidences:
I promoted Casino Webcam for 2 years and earned nothing. Sandpiper casino — failure. Hotel Casino Network — ugh, don’t remind me. Jackpotjoy — I might make enough in a year to pay for a nice dinner. Canbet — 1 player deposited £50, received a £50 match bonus, and then NEVER played at all.
Lots o’ coincidences.
To be fair, I have made some money with Lasseters / Aus Vegas over the years — a few bucks here and there. And I still earn residual income with Vegas Affiliates, which apparently uses the IA platform.
Obviously IA is making money from somewhere, because they have a decent-sized staff and they bring almost everyone to all of the industry events. I have to wonder how IA manages to stay in business, when most of the people I talk to don’t make money with the program. If IA is making money, but their affiliates aren’t, what does that mean? :Cry:
The affiliate managers at IA are great, and I hope some of them will move on to other affiliate programs. If any of you do jump ship, please let me know — I’d like to work with you again.
Vegas affiliates has been with income access for years, switched to something else and bombed, and switched back and works again.
This is all anecdotal, we should do some real testing.
I like Income access more because of the great affiliate team. I am disappointed on the Expekt affiliate team. Does them even have that?
But if we are speaking about software Netrefer is better.

Very well put!! I have had the same exact experiences that Engineer has had and when Intertops moved I refused to work on the IA program, I lost a lot of stats and players, moved back to the old and BAM I was in the biz again. Same thing with Ladbrokes, I earn now since I changed off the IA platform.
