There are many Affiliate who have been working with multiple Affiliate networks. Even I have been having the same issue, I had mailed to all my inactive affiliates but still there were no reply from there side. So at last i just deactivated from from my Affiliate Program. It is very important that we select Affiliates who are active on our Program and make some efforts to promote our products or services.

Yes - I understand what you are saying - but amd probably deactivating them is one of the options - but then I am just eliminating the chance that they will get active.

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.

Allan James couldn't be more right.
Totally took the words out of my mouth :)

Preserving the affiliates is very important, though, we should not be too pushy.

At the end of the day - if you have a really good product - the strong affiliates will keep running it because they will see the high potential of it.

As time will go on you will see the results for yourself - the strong affiliates will give decent results but no more than that, there will be some 'superstars' that will give you unbelievable results but after a while will freeze, and there will be a large amount of affiliates who'll do nothing.
Nature has its way, you know... :)

By the way what is your product?
