    Hi,

    We've just signed up with Shareasale a few days ago and being quite new to the Merchant/Affiliate game we were wondering if any of the more experienced members could give us some pointers!

    We offer 40% commission and 60-day cookies on sale of our range of software products, which comprise of Customer Order Management, Purchase Order Management and Timesheets software.

    We've been spending some time going through the previous posts on this forum and from that we realise that there's obviously quite a lot involved in creating a successful Merchant program and websites. We'd appreciate any feedback in this regard as we're concerned about providing the best possible offering to Affiliates - what else would you like/want to see before you'd consider joining our program?

    The links to our Websites are included at the bottom of our Merchant Program information (wasn't sure about including them here in case they contravened the advertising rules!)

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the program. Looks like you have a good program.

    Couple thoughts. I'd recommend both your sites have a couple starbursts that say "buy now", or "free trial now", or "download now". Some very high level call to action to get people to easily and quickly find someplace to download/buy your stuff.

    Take a peek at our 41 items that are affiliate program features (ie, reasons for affiliates to join us)

    Feel free to borrow anything you find helpful from the list.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice, nakedzombie!

    Taking some of your comments on board, we've been spending some time completely redoing one of our sites (www.clientem.com) - while it still needs a fair bit of work done to the content, we hope it's getting closer to what's required to help generate conversions successfully.

    Acksen-

    Very nice, I like the new "download now" and "buy now" buttons. The colors you choose, and style really made em pop, good work. One question affiliates/customers will have too, it the "download now" part of a free trial, if so, for how long, and is it a "full featured" trial?

    Also, free trial software (for 7/14/30 days) where someone still has to put in CC offer at download helps conversions (see: gotomypc.com) - though obviously does lower number of downloads.

    Best-o-luck
