    Affiliate Education - Evaluating Merchants
    Join Affiliate Voice LLC on Oct 1 at 12:30 EDT for a webinar in our Affiliate Education series. The topic for this call is "Evaluating Merchant Affiliate Program". We are going to discuss the procedure and criteria we use in deciding to join and promote a merchant. This will be the first call in this series.

    Call is geared towards everyone in our industry. We want to begin to discuss the important aspects of a merchant's website and program to help educate everyone. Affiliates and merchants can learn from each other and we can begin to talk about an industry standard and best practice in this area. Call will be led by Carolyn Tang (ShareASale), Kevin Webster and myself but everyone's participation will be welcomed.

    You must register in advance. Registration may be limited. Though everyone is welcome, preference will be given to Affiliate Voice members if space begins to fill.

    Awesome topic for a podcast. OPMs and merchants should attend in addition to affiliates so you can see if your program would pass the criteria.

    Nice response so far. Several merchants signed up so this would be a great opportunity for affiliates to speak up and say what they like and don't like.

    Can we maybe get a merchant volunteer who would like some free feedback on their site? I think it would be fun if each one of us was able to provide our thoughts on a specific program.

    (Would be easier if there was one in ShareASale, as that's the interface I'm most familiar with, but not mandatory!)

    From where I sit, I'd prefer one that wasn't on SAS since you'll be there. I know you won't go soft on them, but still.

    Independent program would be even better.

    I agree. Nicely done. Thank you.

    Usually I talk a lot (too much) at things like this - but not today. Didn't say a word - too busy taking notes.

    I may need to sign up for the next one - from the other point of view.

    I definitely know what you mean! Was scurrying to type the points.

    I will try to make the slides (& hopefully the recording) available in the next day or two.

    Thanks for participating. Looking forward to the next session too.

    Many thanks to Carolyn & Kevin for helping and to Matt McWilliams of Legacy Learning Systems (LearnandMaster) for volunteering to be our case study.

    MP3 download of Webinars
    Thank you for hosting these webinars ...

    Not to sound ungrateful - but in today's fast pace world - having to be "live" to receive the webinar is just not always practical.

    Please have available mp3 downloads of all of the webinars - so that this resource can "really" be used.

    If these are available somewhere already - please point myself and others in that direction.

    Thanks in advance - Much appreciated.

    Are you hand picking various merchants online or is it possible to "apply" for consideration and review?
    Because we run a newly launched website, where we would love to get feedback and reviews from the affiliates. Especially because of the fact that we have 1) A proven good product in Europe (but newly launched in US), 2) Professional commercial video for promotion of the product 3) Celebrity endorsed.

    So we wanted to know, if you handpick different merchants online or if it's possible to make you aware of certain ones? Because then we would like to point ourselfes out first (we are not allowed to post links?!)
