    Hello team,

    As all of you know, any ABW member that has signed up for the BettyMills affiliate program has had the opportunity to earn a 6.5% commission rate.

    Our standard general public (non ABW) rate is 5% on all sales. This has been the standard and will continue.

    Going forward, we are going to do away with the 6.5% rate for any new affiliate partners that submit applications after December 15th 2003.

    Read: Any applications recieved after December 15th, 2003 will be at the 5% commssion level.

    If you are already an active member, at the 6.5% level, you will not be affected. You will stay grandfathered in at the 6.5% commission rate. as long as you are active.

    This is for all new affiliate applications recieved after December 15th, 2003.

    You need to be in the program before December 15th and be an active partner. What is an active partner? You need to send clicks...being enrolled and not having any links up does not make you active. You need to send clicks and show you are trying.....

    If you are already on the program and are not active, you will not get the 6.5%. You need to be active, get those links up and send some clicks...

    Ok, please let me know if anyone has any questions...

    If you haven't joined yet, you have an opportunity to earn an extra 1.5% and get grandfathered in. This is your chance to get on this gravvy train today....i will be monitoring the stats very closely for the next few weeks....

    You can join here!

    Who wants our money ????

    You can do it in 3 simple steps:

    1) Join program
    2) Set up a few links, feed, banners or text links.
    3) Send some traffic, (clicks)

    Thats it...simple....

    Let's make some money...

    I'm glad to see the grandfathering (it saves me from the wholesale destruction of links)--but seeing that the first thing to happen is commission deflation is VERY disheartening.

    Commission deflation is a rot that should be stopped! This industry in the US is starting to look too much like TradeDoubler (UK network with mostly laughable commissions) already, without seeing more programs go the way of lowered commissions!

    Leader,

    Completely understand you....this was not something i requested, this was something that was already in the works. In fact, I had to push to get these terms...

    The reason we are lowering is not to take away, we are going to use the extra points to run monthly cash promotions, bonuses and other incentives. This will be a very active incentives based program in a very short time. Merchants in general have a certain "%" alloted to run programs, BM is not exception, we are merely taking from one place to reward those that really put out effort and deserve the money.

    I know cash is king and we will be rewarding those that deserve it.

    I'm currently in the program at 6.5%. Due to several circumstances, though, I haven't had a chance to develop my site. Believe it or not (you probably don't), that was actually my project for tonight.

    Here's the situation. I can have my entire datafeed site built by December 15, but can't guarantee any clicks, other than my own. Will I still qualify for 6.5%, since I'll obviously be trying?

    Andy,

    I joined and set up a few links. Could you upgrade me to the 6.5% level? Look for a PM with my affiliate ID.

    Thanks!

    Is there a minimum amount of clicks per month ?

    If one is going to be set back to 5%, will they have time to make improvements to keep the 6.5 %

    My window says 5%. Can you fix this Andy? I emailed you two days ago, and didn't get a response, did you recieve the email?

    Finding 120x240 banners is a pain.

    Have a nice day.

    This is really frustrating - BettyMills was going to be one of my next projects.

    I don't have a general 'Mall' type site - I was planning to set up a dedicated 'Hardware' site - so I can't just get the feed and put some pages online before the deadline.

    Can you cut some kind of deal for ABW members who at least sign up for the program before the deadline?

    Just a thought ......

    In the future, you may have top affiliates, generating large sales, getting 5% - but other ABW members with very small sales getting 6.5% just because they joined earlier.

    Can't help thinking that may cause friction

    No reply yet to my question - however I have just signed up with the program.

    Obviously, I am not going to be able to meet this deadline of being active and sending clicks to you by the 15th.

    I have a lot of other projects on the go at the moment - if I can be assured that I will be earning the same commission as all other ABW members, I might be persuaded to move BettyMills higher up my 'To Do' list

    Hi Andy,

    I also just joined. I am also planning a new site, so won't have links up and sending by the deadline. Is the 6.5 still possible?

    Thanks,

    Ken MacKenzie

    Send me a few links to the pages where you have us up on your exisitng site...new sites are fine, however you need a "pulse" - set up a few PSC pages and/or banner, text links....

    Put a big bold text link on the bottom of my home page for you until I can get a proper Janitorial site up and running.

    Home page gets quite a lot of traffic - although it is obviously not targetted towards janitorial products.

    Hope that will be OK for the moment.
