    Thumbs up Rugman is LIVE on SAS !!
    Hello team,

    I'm proud to announce that the Rugman.com affiliate program has launched on SAS. We are open for business and accepting applications....

    We already have a $10.00 CAB (Cash Activation Bonus) ready for you with your name on it. Sign up to the program, load a few links to your site and follow the directions on the welcome email.

    How much simpler can we make it for you to earn $10.00?

    For those of you with existing Rug traffic, we have a $500.00 CAB waiting for you when you generate your first sale of $3,000 or more. Full details on the $10.00 and $500.00 CAB's are in your SAS affiliate welcome email.

    You can join the Rugman.com SAS program by clicking here.

    Thank you in advance for your support on this program...it is appreciated.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    *** The Rugman affiliate program at CJ will continue, there is no need to take down any of your links. We will continue to support the CJ program until at least the end of 2006 and maybe into 2007.

    FYI, it looks like your banners at SAS are broken.

    Are the commissions any higher on SAS?

    Michael,

    I'm not seeing any broken images, merchant or affiliate side.... one or all?

    Commish will be the same for the time being, we will roll out incentives and bonuses that are SAS specific shortly...

    It's all images on the affiliate side (for me anyway). For instance, here's the URL for Banner ID 51723 - 125x125 Satisfaction Guarantee Banner: http://www.shareasale.com/image/cj_august4.gif

    Also, could you create a link to this page (if there isn't one already)?

    It might just be a server synchronization issue on SAS. (I'm getting IP address 161.58.191.254 for www.shareasale.com) One of the links just appeared. That one still isn't working for me.

    Update: That one just appeared too.

    Another Update: They're all working for me now. Definitely just a sync issue.

    Talk about a responsive OPM and a responsive network! Less than half an hour from the first post, and everything is fixed.

    Brian and SAS rocks...

    No other network could I launch a program and have the level of support and fast turn around I get with SAS.

    Brian, I have told you privately, but I want to thank you publicly - Thanks for the incredible support you give to me and to your merchants. It is appreciated and unparalled in the industry.

    Of course, let Rugman commissions pay you back some of that investment ..

    In fact, join all the ARC programs below and pay off that 20K much faster

    Consider me joined as soon as I see a datafeed.

    (as long as it's categorized nicely)

    Same data feed that is now available direct from the Rugman site is currently being formated in SAS specs for upload tomm.

    Consider yourself $10.00 richer once you join and maybe even $500.00 richer on your first sale of $3,000+.

    Thanks for your support ...

    Perfect, need to get some SAS links up. And I'm actually looking for a rug for the living room

    Yum!

    As an existing rugman affiliate, I can't wait to switch over to SAS!!!

    Got any bonus plans for us existing rugman affiliates? Hehehee, gotta ask!

    Really looking forward to phone tracking! I heard that Andy and Liz are working hard to try to make this happen too!!!

    And hoping that some day Rugman ditches the CJ platform altogether to avoid the usual suspects at CJ from being able to mess with my cookies!

    This move to SAS is wonderful! I posted this before - I average over $900 average sale price with Rugman!!! If you're a webmaster with traffic related to home decorating at all, you need to promote this merchant. Great people, great product, great commissions and it just seems to keep getting better all of the time!!!!

    I do focus some really good traffic on this program, so my results are probably on the high end of things... regardless, in Q4 2005, I sold 18 rugs and had no returns and have been paid for them all. In January just ended, I sold 12 more.

    I believe this program is headed for some really outstanding things in 2006!

    Ditto x 1000!! Where there's hardwood there's opportunity! Oh yes, and Rugman.com discounts for affiliates (your commissions) when they purchase through their own links!

    Thanks for the great response to our re-launch everyone - this is a very exciting time for Rugman.com!

    Michael Coley - in response to your inquiry on the searchpromotions.aspx page I do want to make note that as per a message that went out in early January we are trying to migrate affiliate links off that page for now as there are plans to revamp it with a new purpose. Once it has been revamped we will create new links which direct your shoppers to that page.

    Not to worry though! The "search promotions page" is not our main campaign section. Your shoppers get the best deals in other areas of the e-store and banners for our campaigns and promotions are found on every search results page of the site throughout the duration of each campaign.

    Stay tuned - we promise to do all we can to get you all that you need as we continue to grow and change for the better.

    TrustNo1 - Let me know if you need any help finding the rug that's right for you. Our site navigation is pretty intuitive and the interactive features (i.e. flooring backgrounds to help you visualize what the rugs will look like in your home etc) are great - but a personal touch can help as well and no, tracking will not be affected!

    Donuts - Thx as always for being such an outstanding affiliate and one of our biggest cheerleaders!! And to everyone else - I can testify to the results that Donuts has published on this board. I can't wait to see the results from the SAS program now that it's live!



    Thanks again everyone - I look forward to working with all of you; those who continue to promote us, and those who are new to the Rugman.com affiliate team.

    See you at ShareASale!

    Liz, definitely keep me updated on this. I like that page, as it shows the current promotion at the top and shows discounted rugs at the bottom. Having promoted tens of thousands of bargains over the years, I have a gut feeling that the page converts very well. I remembered SAS's option to create a link to any page, and I changed virtually all of my links over to that page yesterday.

    Hi Michael,

    I completely understand where you're coming from and I addressed the issue of affiliate links in to that page this morning in a meeting. Again, we will most certainly keep you posted on any changes no matter what.

    You may want to note (in case you're not already aware) that every search results page of the site hosts a banner at top promoting whatever current promotion is on now and those banners all link to whatever page is hosting the promotion - i.e. Clearance, Traditional styles, Large rugs, etc. - So, the good news is that you (and your shoppers) can enjoy that feature on all pages no matter your landing page URL.

    Again - promise to keep you posted but please keep the great feedback rolling in. We are listening!

    Ciao for now,
