DOWNLINE BUILDERS: What ARE downline Builders? A downline builder is a system by which a member can promote memberships to other etools within AdPirate.
How do they work? When a referral joins AP, then joins any of the programs within the Downline Builders, they are automatically signed up under the person who brought them into AP, provided that person has added his IDs and/or also joined those progams. If his upline is not a member or does not input his membership information in the Downline Builder, the referral will join under the next person above them.
FOR EXAMPLE: Joe is a member of AP and a member of Tutorials4Newbies. He visits the Safelist Downline Builder page, inputs and saves his T4N username/ID. From then on, anyone who joins AP from his referral page and decides to also join T4N on the Safelist Downline Builder page, will automatically be in his T4N downline, too.
Going a step further, once Joe saves his current usernames, suppose he sees another safelist in the Downline Builder he wants to join. He visits the site, via the "JOIN" link, then returns and also adds THIS username to the list. This becomes ANOTHER safelist that, should his referrals join, they will also join under him.
By doing this, AdPirate becomes a convenient, one-stop way of promoting ALL the other safelists and traffic exchanges a member belongs to.
But I don't see a safelist or traffic exchange that I like and belong to. Can I add it to the list? Yes, AdPirate is always looking to expand the downline builder with good quality e-tools.
HOW do I add it? Send the link via the contact us page. To ensure the highest quality, e-Tools will be reviewed and tested prior to adding them to the list.
What is the advantage of sending a suggested e-tool? When a link is approved and added to the list, that person automatically becomes the top level of ALL AP members.
