    Suggestions for software, etc
    Hi everyone!
    I'm really new to the affiliate game, and we want to run a program that can do the following steps below. The problem is, I've been trying to work with CJ and they are basically not helpful and from what correspondence I do get from them, it seems that what we'd like to do can't be done. Does anyone have any suggestions on if this type of program can be done and what type(s) of software/program would be able to do this? Thank you!

    . Affiliate applies via a page specific to this program
    . Affiliate IDs are passed to us via RSS/email/data export
    . Once signed up, internal emails are sent to the
    affiliates each time a new post/tweet is published. The email will include a custom link (with affiliate ID appended for tracking) to post/tweet on affiliates social networks using our own internal email marketing system to post custom links to associate e.g.
    linkexample.com/content?affid=1234567
    . If a conversion takes place via content retweeted/posted by
    affiliate, SOMETHING records commissions a pays our revenues as per usual process

    If there are any questions or you need more info, just let me know.

    Thanks!
    Louise

    You have to develop that kind of a system. I am not sure if CJ has an api that will tell you when someone has just signed up. Otherwise you can hire a program to scrape the program daily and email at certain intervals.

    As Chuck said, it sounds like you need an internal system that links affiliate ID with your own CMS.

    But speaking as a publisher..
    Once signed up, internal emails are sent to the
    affiliates each time a new post/tweet is published. The email will include a custom link (with affiliate ID appended for tracking) to post/tweet on affiliates social networks using our own internal email marketing system to post custom links to associate e.g.
    linkexample.com/content?affid=1234567
    While I appreciate the fact you want affiliates to share your posts/tweets, I would find that annoying (sorry!).

    Affiliates create their own content.. we are independent publishers who should be doing much more than replicating a merchant's content/words.

    Heck, I might be in the minority, some publishers might love it

    Louise if you are tweeting out deals you should instead look into making a widget that affiliates can use as an advanced link.
