    4Checks May 2008 Affiliate Incentive - Details Inside!
    Happy "Almost" May Day everyone!

    I know this may seem a bit last minute, but I have just received long-awaited approval for my May Affiliate Incentive. To make a long story short…

    I WANT TO PAY YOU 30% COMMISSION IN MAY 2008!

    How can you earn an additional 5% commission, you ask? The rules are simple:

    You must be a 4checks.com affiliate partner.

    In order to qualify for an additional 5% in commissions, your total affiliate sales for the month of May must be a 10% increase over your monthly sales from March 2008.

    You must comply with 4Checks terms and conditions – no adware, no spyware, no DTM PPC and no spamming.*

    Questions? Comments? Please contact me. I want you to be successful!

    *Please keep in mind that participating in these acts will not only disqualify you from this incentive, it will get you booted from my program.

    Great incentive offer, Kim. You are definitely on the ball. This is one for which anyone can qualify - not just the "heavy hitters." Bravo!

    (Just wish you had had it for April - where I know I beat March by 10%.)

    Just wanted to make sure on this part. May sales 10% over March and not April?

    Thanks! To be honest, it's a challenge to find something that applies to all types of affiliates, regardless of volume. I hope this works! I would love to be able to extend it if it does.

    I'm sure you can hit that 10% mark!

    Yes, thanks for clarifying.

    May sales must increase 10% over March 2008 sales in order to qualify for the additional 5% in commission.

    I appreciate the incentive.

    I wonder, though, if people can really turn sales on and off based on sales incentives? Don't get me wrong, though. We certainly want all the commission we can get. However we drive all the business our feeble little brains allow us to now.

    isn't and die to find out there is.

    "I wonder, though, if people can really turn sales on and off based on sales incentives?"

    Yep, you can drive more sales because of incentives or just whenever you want. You can do more PPC, you can feature them on your home page or get them better position above the fold, you can put them in a newsletter if you have one. That kind of thing. So if you did X amount for a merchant and they had some kind of deal as a commission bump for driving 10% more in sales, don't think it's hard to do. I kind of wish it was for April tho, not sure if I had March sales, have to check. But I know I had sales last month. Either way, 25% alone is great.

    It's impossible for me. As you know the first quarter in the check selling business is like the 4th quarter in the gifts business. I had an all time record high in sales in March which dropped 17% in April. There is no way I could sell 10% more checks in May than I could in March, but I surely could (and will) sell 10% more checks in may 2008 than I did in may 2007.

    Trying to sell 10% more checks in May than march is like trying to sell 10% more toys in February than in December.

    visitourmall,

    As Trust said, this is just meant to give those that need a bit of a push, the bit of a push. I'm willing to test different incentive ideas, so if you have any thoughts, please feel free to send 'em my way.

    Trust,

    Thanks for jumping in!

    Oranges,

    It's true that the first quarter is generally our busiest, but I wanted to come up with an incentive that would be challenging. That said, I don't think that 10% more check sales is impossible for the month of May. I look forward to giving many of our partners 30%. I hope you will be one of them!

    OK - you were right. Well, at least in $ volume I hit the 10% mark (actually an 11.77% increase) over the weekend. I still need a few more sales to beat the "number" of sales from March by 10%. But, hey, I've still got a third of the month to go.

    This is a May that is going down in the history books, my friends! Thanks to all of you for making it possible.

    I think we just met our March numbers with 11 days to go. So looking good I think.
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    Awesome!! Thanks so much!

    I would love to be able to extend this incentive for June. It will be a bit more challenging, with June only having 30 days and all, but not impossible...

    Kim, you can add me to the list.

    One more sale and I will have my best month so far! I know that's still not saying much but I am pleased.

    WooHoo! I qualified for the bonus and just saw that sweet li'l contribution to my SAS account. Thank you Kim.

    And, in deference to Donuts' comment, I may actually have to get serious about checks. I'm not big into PPC, so it will take a while to get ramped up for content and SEO - but my "summer help" starts in two weeks...
