    All,

    Shawn of Overstock stepped to the plate with Morpheus ... and now we need to help him!

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Calling all affiliates...
    After having pulled the plug with Buyersport until they patch their technical issues, I am now stuck w/ several hundred MP3 players that I need to get rid of through other channels. I've heard rumors that you are taking extra steps to promote Merchants like Overstock.com that do not use "Parasiteware" affiliates.

    So, let me challenge you to put your money where your mouths are, if you don't mind... &offerid=38611.10000343&type=3&subid=0]http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=[SITE.CODE]&offerid=38611.10000343&type=3&subid=0
    The above link is ready to go, but you need to replace:
    [SITE.CODE]
    with your actual LinkShare Site Code in order for it to work. Or, you can simply log in to LinkShare, Select "Create Links" for Overstock.com, then navigate to "Text Links".

    One of the last text links I added was to this page: MP3 Sale at Overstock.com!

    It features several MP3 players along with other electronics, DVDs, etc. with a $5 OFF $50 coupon for all customers.

    Any assistance that you can provide will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    @ Shawn
    I am not an affiliate of yours Shawn but thank to you for your your stand against the parasites I will join. I am sure I can find a place to put some links for you to help you sell them.

    Do I have to join on Linkshare?

    I can't make any promises regarding sales (electronics ain't my gig), but I can promise you plenty of exposure. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Well, I never thought I would do this but...

    What the hey, I guess Linkshare gets one more chance.

    Thanks for making a stand Shawn!

    It looks like I am going into the music business tonight!

    I'm in! and not just for mp3 players. I'll try to spread out your links among all of my shopping categories.

    WTG Shawn!

    I told you guys once OverStock got out from under their side deals with the scumware/parasites they should rule the general merchandise categories. No way can they match TigerDirect for computer product sales but the two make for a winning combination. Maybe Shawn can inform us why OverStock decided to ditch BeFree where they haven't shown much sales activity since Jan 2002.

    Everyone - Thank you for the support. It's greatly appreciated.

    Mike - Wouldn't pretend to be able to compete with TigerDirect on selection for Computers (nor would I want to <smile>). I think the combination of TigerDirect for Computers and accessories, and Overstock.com for our other departments is a winning combination. And, Andy is a hell of a good guy…

    No comment on BeFree. I have nothing bad to say about them. We moved to LinkShare because LinkShare is a much better fit for where we need to be, and it was the best decision I could have made.

    In other news, many folks requested Dynamic Promotional Banners. I added them to the DRM (Dynamic Rich Media) section of the Affiliate Site in 4 banner sizes:
    - 468x60
    - 234x60
    - 125x125
    - 120x60

    The DRM links are JavaScript code that pulls from our servers. The images we use are cached on Akamai and served at the closest point to your visitor, so they are extremely fast. Coding for you only once, and we will always display a current high-conversion promotion. (Mike, you asked for higher conversions – try this and see what happens.)

    Many, many thanks,

    I'm going to rewrite most major Cybermall sections to feature both the dynamic top category selles and the rotating promotion banners. I then add in the pre-sell text and accolades for Overstocks ebiz commitment and a search box. Then pull down all the BeFree creatives while I'm on those pages. That should do the trick since I show Overstock Linkshare sales most every day.
