Asian Money Machine is a good program for some micro-niche Asian content sites, or would be were it not for the lack of updates. Unfortunately, it does not appear as if the program is updating any longer. While the program offers several popular promotional tools, and others are listed as ‘coming soon,’ the last promotional content updates were added approximately two and a half years ago. The lack of updates does not give us any confidence that those pending tools will ever be actually realized, though one can certainly hope. But, we wouldn’t hold our breaths.

As mentioned, the Asian Money Machine has some good content in what might be considered some Asian micro-niches. Particularly we are referring to sites dedicated to Asian internal cumshots (creampies), Asians with big tits, and Asian BBWs. We might also point out that the sites appear to be divided between Thai and Japanese content. It is also worth noting that the hardcore Japanese content is without the ‘mosaic’ blurring that is often associated with content out of the nation of the rising sun.
Affiliates will find that the Asian Money Machine program currently provides affiliates with Photos Of The Day (POTDs), downloadable content sets, hosted galleries, and RSS feeds for accessing those galleries. However, as the gallery updates have stalled, those feeds are of only limited value. While the program’s tools page indicates that blog feeds and flash videos are also in the works, we remain skeptical.
It also bears mentioning that the Asian Money Machine program is a CCBill program, meaning that they use the third party CCBill system to track visitors, collect payments, and disburse affiliate earnings. Many affiliates feel that programs that utilize CCBill and thus voluntarily remove themselves from any direct influence over stats or affiliate payments merit some added trust, and all else being equal we tend to agree. Since CCBill tracking is accomplished entirely by cookies, it is also an easy matter for affiliates to create their own deep links to pages of their choosing. Unfortunately though, the Asian Money Machine sites offer very little site depth for that feature to be of much use.
Although the Asian Money Machine has some good sites in some very specific Asian niches, we suspect the lack of updates will be a huge impediment. Still, affiliates looking to push those micro-niches may find this program and its existing lineup of promotional tools to be of some value.
