    Irvs Luggage Now Pays 800 Phone Commission

    I am very proud and excited to announce that Irvs Luggage is now tracking and paying commission for 800# phone sales. It’s like getting an instant raise! This will also help you increase sales so you can all get more Irvs bonus commissions.

    I can only find a couple of CJ merchants that offer this additional income to their partners and no other merchant in the Luggage/Travel accessories space offers this opportunity to capitalize on commissions that should rightfully be yours anyway.

    I think it’s a shame that more merchant don’t credit you for phone sales and am happy that we can now pay Irvs affiliates commissions on every sale they generate! Longest CJ cookies, bonus commissions, NO parasites and now 800# commissions too.

    The most exciting thing for affiliates this that, while Irvs does not get a ton of phone orders, many times when they do – it’s because it’s a BIG order and they have questions or want to talk to a live person. Irv’s also sometimes gets very large corporate orders. Lucking out and getting those big phone orders is a numbers game. The more you promote Irvs, the better your chances are.

    To see it in action:
    Click here to see the normal header http://www.irvs.com

    Then click here:
    http://www.irvs.com/?AID=9707661&PID=1186891
    You'll see a priority code – which is the CJ affiliate PID

    To help insure that customers give the priority code when calling in – Click on “What’s a Priority Code?” You will see a message that says:
    -----------------------------
    Q - What is a Priority Code?

    A - Many of our on-line prices are lower than you'll find in our stores or in our catalog. If you phone-in your order, please be sure to provide your Priority Code to our Order Specialist. This is the only way to insure your eligibility for our special online pricing.
    ------------------------

    Although I would like to take all the credit for this, I need to give credit to Jim Gribble the owner of LinkProfits for coming up with the idea. Some of you may know that I am also an outsourced consultant for LinkProfits and work closely with Jim on this account. He came up with the idea and then he and I sold it to management, worked with the programmer and I trained Irvs staff to implement.

    But the main kudos needs to go to Irvs Management for having the foresight to do this. It took a lot of time, money and resources to make this happen.

    CJ phone orders are manually entered, after they ship and will start with a P so you can tell how many phone orders you get.

    What do you guys think? Do you like it?

    I first clicked on the link with the priority code and didn't see it, but when i clicked on the straight irv's link, i saw it.

    I don't think it is getting set the first time the cookie is being set.

    But very cool when it is displayed.

    Could an Irvs affiliate test with an actual affiliate link from your site and be sure the Priority code shows up on the 1st click?

    We had to do testing in the background and it was difficult to fully test until we went live. We just launched this today so if we have to tweak code, now is the time to do it!

    Thanks,

    A beautiful well thoughout pro-affiliate move. Nicely priced luggage and briefcases and phone order credit.

    Q - What is a Priority Code?

    A - Many of our on-line prices are lower than you'll find in our stores or in our catalog. If you phone-in your order, please be sure to provide your Priority Code to our Order Specialist. This is the only way to insure your eligibility for our special online pricing.

    Nice consumer friendly spin.

    It is next to the phone#. It was supposed to be right next to it, but the Whats this link would not fit. If it's a big issue and more than one person mentions it I can get the programmer to change it.

    OK, all fixed. It works perfect now.

    The programmer is just working on setting the cookies correctly so you full 120 days credit BY PHONE! Even if someone clicks, then comes back 2 1/2 months later through search engines or bookmarks, your Priority code will still show up and you will still get your commish!!!

    From what I always was told, a lot of people have a hard time seeing red on black and visa versa. Just something I was always told by a quite a few people. Not sure of the numbers of those being blind to this.

    I kind of like red on black myself, but stayed away from it for the above reason. The ID is red on a black background. I don't have a problem seeing it myself.

    Sharp looking site though.

    Dirk THANK YOU for mentioning the Red on Black issue. I can see it just fine, but someone else told be it was hard to read. I didn't understand when he said that, now I do. Thanks for pointing this out.

    We are doing a complete site re-design right now too. More up-to-date look, much better navigation and increased conversion rates!!!

    So the new header should look much better and we will be sure it's not red on black.

    Since visitors are having a hard time seeing the links ...ad-blocking software and all ...

    I am just going to post 800 numbers on my sites to all the CJ merchants ...and instruct the visitors to tell who sent them.

    Should see sales rolling in soon.

    It would also be nice if this thing would return with the tracking cookie.

    Heyder - is this what you mean?

    The programmer is just working on setting the cookies correctly so you full 120 days credit BY PHONE! Even if someone clicks, then comes back 2 1/2 months later through search engines or bookmarks, your Priority code will still show up and you will still get your commish!!!
    This was already supposed to work but he needs to tweak the code.
