Most of you will no doubt be aware that I have a policy when working with networks and companies. That policy is that I like to give networks and companies the benefit of the doubt when I work with them. A lot of the time it works but some times, like now, it can backfire on me and leave me feeling rather stupid.
I first came across Blog Advertising Store when it was going by the name of Paid Post, they then changed their name to Paying Post before finally changing it to their current name of Blog Advertising Store. I’m not sure if they have had more than three name changes.
Some people might point out that any company that changes their name three times in two years obviously should be avoided. Even the $100 payout minimum did not look too off-putting to me as this is what I would earn from a couple of decent SEO Prices as a frelancer.
As I write this I have earnt a total of $116 and even though I have sent them at least half a dozen emails they have not paid me and have ignored every email I’ve sent. And apparently I’m not the only one, nobody has received a payment from them and a quick Google search proves this.
Will I learn something from this? I doubt it. The next time a network comes along with great promises, and an excellently designed web site, I’ll probably still sign up and write about things like sexy costumes because I’m an idiot. 🙂
