There is a great saying 'Don't chase the birds, plant more seeds'
I've learned not to stress about any inactive affiliates in my teams. I just make contact, offer support and then 'some do, and some don't'.
I find it's better just to spend my time and intellectual energy in making sure a good flow of potential is always entering my sales funnel.
Interestingly I don't have a lot of inactive people. I put this down to the materials I provide to help make it easy for them to market, high conversion rates and the 100% commissions I pay.
If affiliates are making good money with a reasonable amount of effort they don't wander away.
