    I will definately make sure I create a new site dedicated to Betty Mills.

    I have nothing against you Victor, but having Andy come on board is the best thing that you could do for your affiliate program

    How is Andy coming on board going to change your program? I was actually planning on building a Betty Mills site tonight, and am curious if any changes will be occurring with the feed.

    Michael,

    We are adding a few more tools. As for the feed, per my understanding (3 hours on the job) there are no major issues with the current feed. Please advise if there are any, i will be posting a series of Q+A's later tonight on different topics.

    We are going to make some changes to the commission structure (will not affect any current ABW members, more on that later) and adding a few more tools to the program.

    1) FPC's are coming...
    2) New affiliate centered landing pages...
    3) Multiple category specific feeds for targeted sites...
    4) Announcement regarding webmerge and BettyMills user demo...
    5) Product Showcase Creator...
    6) Bonuses and monthly promotions....

    Many other good stuff coming down the road...

    Congrats Andy on FINALLY being part of a program that pays a REAL COMMISSION!

    Now I can see for myself what everybody's always raving about you for--without feeling like I'm losing out with every transaction like I would with one of those low-percentage electronics programs...

    Now all this program needs is a CR on my site! So far the section has been buyer-proof.

    Holly Cow!

    After the new year, I am going to take a full month and just put up Andy's programs.

    This is a MUST DO!!

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    Farewell, CJ! I loved you when you were young and pure. I will try to remember you that way. Disclaimer: Comments are to be interpreted as opinion unless otherwise noted.

    He won't have much of a challenge with this program.

    There's definitely need for the "AffiliateDoctor" in the house. The same type of pages (design, technique, etc.) on my sites are selling other products well, but no luck with Betty Mills.

    I will say I can't wait to get that categorized feed. Getting the cleaning stuff seperated from the office supplies is a logical first move.

    Hi, Andy:

    I've watched others work with you for a long time, it'll be interesting to finally work with you myself.

    I've been quite happy with Victor's support so I'll be curious to see how you apply your personal approach to the program.

    BTW, as far as I'm concerned I'm quite happy with the BettyMills feed as it is -- the categories, etc. are all fine with me.

    MikeO, the pleasure is mine...

    Victor has done a fantastic job on this program - however he needs to be free to do his main job, run the company....we have been planning this for a long time. He will still be an active part in the affiliate channel...i'm just running the day to day stuff...

    The feed is fine - there are a few minor glitches, but they can, for the most part, be automagically dealt with.

    The Q4 updated structure, IMHO, was a great improvement over Q3. Now please, set it in stone so I don't have to rebuild my table structure every quarter

    [edit:]
    Actually, I do have a suggestion for it -- make it accessible via automation tools like wget -- I'd rather not transfer a 20+ Mb file twice if I can avoid it.

    Definately one of the better feeds around - but delivery could be improved. Took several attempts for your system to create the feed before the browser timed out.

    Personally, I'd rather have a fixed file (tab or pipe delimited) I can transfer server to server - and substitute my own ID - than have to download and upload the feed manually.

    Also, Victor ... you should be aware that the announcement emails you send out have no plain text component, only html. That makes them appear empty in some mail clients, especially the more spam and virus-immune versions.

    The feed as it is runs fine. I'll try to clarify a bit. Usually I just run a feed all at once without doing anything to categorize the output. Which is fine in most cases--most of my merchants have things which are close enough in terms of category that it wouldn't really help anything to break it down further.

    But cleaning supplies and office supplies are quite a bit different, so I am looking forward to the "niche" feeds so I can have that seperated WITHOUT having to do anything special to seperate it.
