    Ok- I take it back, I just looked again and it did track.. miracle

    It took a bit. But also Bluefly tracked which I was suspicious of as well.

    All is good in my hood

    I can't believe they don't have product links. How the heck you supposed to promote them.

    UGH I know! I run an online fashion mag so I need to show products but conversions are low because of course the reader ends up on the GAP homepage!

    If they switch over to the CJ platform at least we could redirect to the product page...

    So annoyed when merch's don't have individual product links.

    "How the heck you supposed to promote them."

    Text link to home page with what's happening. Coupons, promotions, any deals or sales going on, that kind of thing. Gap doing ok, Old Navy much better.

    The problem is that does very poorly compared to product links.

    How would you know, you would have to actually try it. I would bet you they would convert better if you went that route. But since you like the product links, add that in. A product link with a promotion would be the highest converting traffic you can send a merchant. A targetted, money saving click, nothing beats that.

    That's exactly my point. You can't do product links for them. We do have a link to their site where we list our clothing merchants. Just can't get do much else on a page devoted to Gap

    That's my point, do what you can then. You don't think you would get more sales by doing what i suggested than by just having a straight link to Gap? Try it, then come back and post before and after conversion ratios. Posting promotions can only help. And if they ever start offering products links, do both, make money.

    Jackson,

    What I do is copy a product pic and then serve it on my server and use my HTML editor to send that product pic to GAP using my affiliate link.

    It still doesn't get the visitor to the page you want but it shows the product and hopefully they can find it If anything like Trust was saying, just talk up the promotions etc and they will find something to buy!
