    I've been promoting a few programs on BeFree with mixed results. Any advice on stronger programs. Anyone have performance stats?

    We've been after BF for years to publish some meaningful stats to show affiliates the conversion ratio of the merchants. No respomnse yet so we assume it means their conversion ratios suck big time. Some like TigerDirect publish their results and the rest remain quiet hoping they don't scare off free traffic generators.

    I don't have too many BeFree partners. But for the ones I do, the only good program that has a good conversion rate is, oddly, Vermont Country Store. Their site and products do well during the gift buying season (like this Fall) and are pretty good at getting impulse buys.

    I've had dismal luck with Expedia. Bass Pro Shops also converts very poorly in comparison to my other sports merchants. While you occasinally get some nice sales with them, overall conversion rates for my site at least are quite low.

    Checks Unlimited converts very well for me.

    It really depends on your viewership. I'm guessing something relating to films, books, or books about films?
