    For Q1, I hope you'll consider letting affiliates qualify for any bonus level at or above their current level. For instance, if an affiliate is currently at the "Gold" level, let them earn the "Elite" bonus if they can hit the sales target for that level.

    Me also, but why not every quarter. Is good for motivation.

    I probably should have said "Starting Q1". I'm not sure how long Linkshare plans on running these promotions. Hopefully it's ongoing.

    It really would be good for motivation. I had one merchant that I could have hit a bonus for, but since I was only in the Silver level (since I hadn't promoted them in the past) and the bonus would have only been $100, I concentrated my efforts elsewhere.

    AWESOME! I should have read the FAQ.

    Okay, here are a couple new suggestions for future bonuses:

    1) Please don't include December (and maybe even November???) in our sales targets for Q1 or Q2. December just doesn't compare to any other month.

    2) How about setting a fourth (Bronze?) level with something that smaller affiliates can hit? I'd love to see more people get excited about this.

    Hi Michael -

    To address your questions:

    1) Please don't include December (and maybe even November???) in our sales targets for Q1 or Q2. December just doesn't compare to any other month.

    You got it! Winner Wonderland, the exciting new LinkShare Club promotion beginning January 1, will use September, October and November as the baseline months for tier determination.

    2) How about setting a fourth (Bronze?) level with something that smaller affiliates can hit? I'd love to see more people get excited about this.

    We may alter the tier structure in the future, but three tiers worked so well for Earn More in Q4 that we're sticking with that structure by popular demand for Winner Wonderland. We've already got 6 merchants ready to go and more are on their way:

    Carlson Hotels Worldwide
    Computers4SURE
    Marshall Fields
    Net2Phone
    Target
    Tech Depot

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    Hopefully these are in addition to the ones from Q4?
