M-rock Camera Bags

Who is M-Rock camber bag and what can you expect from working with the own Michael Rockwell (he hates mike that should be a clue from the onset as to his inflated ego of self importance) MRock is a small brand of camera bags, trying to survive in today's current retail environment. Mrock camera bags are available online and in retail stores from china (where they are made) to the United States where they can be found heavily discounted online. This page is created to try to contact Michael Rockwell in an effort to receive my final payment, there is little I can do to make him honor our agreement, other that to tell the truth here for everyone.

My involvement with M-rock camera bags began about two years ago and you may have even seen them listed on the site previously, but I approached them June 3rd 2010 to find out why the affiliate program was off-line. It was off-line due to non payment of deposits, due to "My credit card was canceled due to a fraudulent transaction and I was a bit slow entering a new one.~Michael " This was resolved quickly, but or conversations turned to getting better information regarding their bags, to provide here. It was at this point that I met Michael Rockwell. Michael seemed relatively uninformed about some of the information I was requesting and continued to ask questions to the point he received a free consultation on how to properly name his camera bags for use online, and continued to push for more information until I was proposing services as an outsource program manager for his Share a sale affiliate program.

As show below:

Thanks Bruce I agree with this

Our agreement no in place I went to work on cleaning up M-rocks product catalog of 36 camera bags and other related items, all the time having trouble communicating with Michael, due to his nature of talking OVER someone, making the conversation very one sided. I continued on to the landing pages, or his site and tried to work within his "I have no budget for change" position, at one point siting an entire section of misrepresented prices that needed to be updated on the site.

My first payment from Michael cam after nearly quitting due to his additional needs (more hoops before payment, missed calls, postponed meetings...), these request were mostly reasonable as such provided, but the tone was set>>>not easy to get payment from. This is of major importance since at his demand payment is not provided until after service have been provided, which I had extended to him as I considered him an honorable business person at this point.

Our second month started with M-rock under cutting all other prices on Amazon, which sparked a price war across eBay, Amazon and other online prices. For the life of me I still can not figure out why a distributor and retailer like M-Rock would under cut not only their affiliate program, but the other retailers actually stocking the m-rock brand. As such the sales crashed in his affiliate network.

In mid July I was trying to address the PPC details of his account, which is very important for any affilaite program, at which point Michael plead ignorance and asked for more information, he additionally took steps to create an in-house campaign to promote the M-Rock brand name. (this issue had already been addressed by the previous out source management company It is obvious he remembers this due to his email:

"I do remember we got by far the best results when it was not protected. My first reaction was to be horrified when I discovered what was going on and I felt like they were leaches. Now I miss the business. Nothing else has seemed to work or motivate the affiliate"

As of 7-27-10 per Michael's request, affiliates were allowed to bid on the brand name and use in an effort to drive more traffic and sales to the retail site and a newsletter was sent to inform affiliate.
