  What i did Next
After receiving this message. I had no choice but to accept that ,it was my fault. Actually i sign up for Amazon associate using a yahoo email. This is the email i used in learning online marketing since i was in high school. I subscribed to many websites and programs that bring me at least 100 messages daily. This makes it difficult for me to read all emails here.

Reapplying for Amazon associates was the only solution to keep me in the Amazon affiliate program. 

 Steps I Took After Creating A New Amazon Affiliate Account
I  Followed the Link with  the other affiliate account still open. Mos of my basic data was filled. I then completed the other fields and clicked on Next.

As you can see. You need to make a sale within 3 months, if not your account will be closed.
That was it. I am back as an Amazon affiliate.

                                       Some Steps i took after facing this Problem

i. The first thing i did was that i have to update my email  . I  decided to make a unique email that i will be using for all Affiliate programs i have joined.

ii. I check search my top 3 affiliate networks every week in my email account.
My top 3 if you want to know are Avnagate,Click Bank and Amazon.

iii.  I updated my affiliate links on my post  and emails.
iv.  Visit the AmVisit Amazon associate link regularly. I used to generate my links from the Amazon Assocaite Site Stripe that display on  the shopping website.
v. Promised myself never to make the same error again.

Have you had a similar experience on Amazon?
