Hi Juicychic,

My name is Daniel from Moms Affiliate and thank you for your interest in our platform. We are a little different to Shareasale and in that we are simplifying referral marketing to make it easier for the blogger. We are entirely focused on on the mommy blogging space as moms make great marketers and we believe that stronger connections can be made if the ad messaging and content placements are tightly aligned. More information can be found and we welcome any bloggers to signup or check out our site.

Thanks again and please reach out to us if you have any questions.

As a marketing component for our business, we thought we would try (a mom blogger for-hire website) to facilitate some product reviews.

Upon review of over 50 of the blogs that they have on their Moms Affiliate site, we became suspicious. It started to appear to be a self feeding scam. The majority of the bloggers claim to be Christian Homeschoolers just trying to do right for their families. Many of the bloggers who claim home-school have only children under 5 in their bio. The blogs have very little content. Most ramble about themselves. Some include very inappropriate photos and words. Some blogs listed cannot be even found by using internet or blog search engines. Running most of the sites through SEMRush showed a handful of visitors to the sites per month, yet the bloggers were claiming thousands. I then started checking and rechecking who responded to posts. They are responding to each other over and over...not random people coming to their sites. There is also a connection to a site called The top 50 Mommy Bloggers which appears rigged by their circle of bloggers. Many of the bloggers have common graphic styles, poor resolution. So some may appear to have many views...but these views come from each other.

That said, I gave one of the bloggers on Moms Affiliate the benefit of the doubt and hired her to do a product review. We shipped her a hundred dollars in product, sent repeated emails, but never heard back. It was a grab and go... Moms Affiliate style. 

This experience solidifies my earlier findings. It appears that many of the bloggers on Moms Affiliate are entered in deceitful and dishonest practices.  Luckily, we learned this before signing onto one of their campaigns.

I don't mean to cause harm. I just know that there are many other businesses, like ours, that need to be prudent with their marketing spend.

I'm skeptical of it because they say they help you write a post. I write honest reviews on my site and don't want influence as to what I write about.

Hello everyone,

I have been using Mom's Affiliate for some time now. I have always had good experiences with them, until they changed their platform to socialite. I liked how I could change the banner ads to fit my site, but now I can't find where to do that. But other than just recently, I had a good experience.
