    Just wondering if anyone is aware of merchants who create and give free content to their affiliates, with ads (commissionable of course) embedded in them?

    Something like daily site reviews, daily cartoons, daily...I dunno recipes? Any type of content created by the Merch for partners? (cross posted on shareasale, hope that's kosher)

    More specifically, we're thinking about creating a free daily cartoon that affiliates could then place on their site and build Naked Zombie ads around. Anyone doing anything like that? Good idea? Rotten idea?

    Be well.

    some may be interested in a dynamic link -- one that you refresh daily.

    by the way, your sig line is repeating

    Hmmmm, trying to see where sig file repeated and can't seem to find it. Not the sig file, the entire post seems to be gone.

    Herb-

    Ahha, the moderator at CJ, where this was cross posted, moved the thread here (after it was live in their board for three days, without telling me), and somehow repeated the sig file.

    cripes.

    >(cross posted on shareasale, hope that's kosher)<

    Yeah, we're thinking a daily cartoon with a dynamic affiliate banner link that sells the product of the day.

    Brian, can you combine this at the tail end of the original post please? I don't want to make it look like I'm spewing on the board.

    thnx

    As a merchant I certainly would welcome an affiliate inquiry to provide content. Although I've listed this option, I haven't had anyone ask me about it yet.

    Nope, not talking about affiliate providing content to a merchant, talking about a merchant providing content to their affiliates.

    Or if your saying your waiting for affiliates to ask the merchants for content, that does not seem proactive enough. I think a content program must developed by merchants with affiliates in mind.

    If an affiliate were to ask you, what type of content would you provide them?
