I have been receiving an automated email from [email protected] every week for over a year. I’ve responded to that email multiple times in order to address the question posed by the email and not one single response. If anyone has another email that does work, could you please post it here? Once Bill passed away it has been next to impossible to reach anyone there.
I’ll hopefully have a meeting with a legal representative next week, we’ll go over the basics and see what chances there are of getting somewhere with it. It could be tricky/expensive considering the cross-border issue but I want to try nonetheless.
Oh, they also have a Twitter account you can DM, seems to be active - @WilliamHiggins
We’ve sent them a message warning of potential legal action. If you’re owed money try messaging them?
Conran, I DM’d you the other day. I also just sent them a message on Twitter as you suggested…
It also seems that William Higgins dose pay certain affiliates… I see many of the bigger affiliate blogs still pushing their content. One would assume they are getting paid? Of course that’s just an assumption… I don’t have any factual information to that matter but seeing as I haven’t been paid in over a year one would think if the same was true for those other affiliates they would have caught on by now?
I was getting paid up until this year. But so far nothing and no response. They did reply previously but my last attempt at contacting them has not had any reply.
I’m trying to refocus away from promoting a diverse mix of sponsors to instead focusing on the ones that I know always pay on time. There’s just too many now that I have to chase and just dont know if I will ever get paid. Even if they have good ratios, those ratios means nothing if they don’t actually pay. It’s hard though, I hate seeing diversity go out of the window and just do a few larger sponsors.
One of our scouts sends models that we decide not to go with over to Higgins, so I can ask if they have a contact, but I would guess they only have a contact for the production team. Since Bill died I don’t really know anyone there anymore
On April 4th I fired off a DM to them on Twitter as Conran suggested and the next day I received a response from the person who runs their social media feed on Twitter via email.
At that time I didn’t bother posting anything here because nothing had changed really. I still hadn’t been paid.
Here was his email to me:
I read your twitter message and Iam sorry for your payment problem.
I take care just of social network but I will do my best to solve your problem.
Give me please your affiliate name, if you would know anybody else, who has same problem, give him my contact.
I will get in touch with the owner and Iam sure he will sort it out with the people in charge.
Here is his email address: Paul Gregory p73gregory [AT] gmail.com
I supplied him with the information he requested and a little over a week later surprise surprise William Higgins just paid me via PayPal. I hadn’t been paid in over a year and they paid me all the way up through January 31st of this year.
I haven’t spoke to anyone from William Higgins and I’d hate to keep bothering their social media guy but at this point I guess it’s all we can do until we have some other contact information that is replied to.
I’m happy to report that we have finally recieved payment.
It’s sad that it took so much hassle, time and drama but hopefully this has taught whoever is in charge there to be a little more professional and respectful to the people who work so damn hard to promote them.
Fingers crossed we won’t have to go through this again.
