    Ideas for promotions?
    What kind of promotions do you affiliates like? Ideally sports/golf related. Do you like money based promotions, like:

    sell $xxxx and get $xx....

    or...

    First who sells $xxxx gets $xx...

    or..

    Whoever sells $xxxx this month gets 50% higher commission for for x months

    or prize based:

    sell $xxxx and get a free driver?

    or conversion based:

    who has the highest conversion increase during month of April gets $xxx...

    any other suggestions?

    "First who sells $xxxx gets $xx..."
    Don't like that, because only 1 affiliate gets that, probably an already top affiliate.

    "Whoever sells $xxxx this month gets 50% higher commission for for x months"
    Good.

    "who has the highest conversion increase during month of April gets $xxx..."
    I've never liked those, never inspired me. One month I could have 100 clicks and 10 sales. Next month I could have 50 clicks and 6 sales. So somebody could have a conversion increase while driving less sales. And also like above, good for only one affiliate.

    "sell $xxxx and get $xx...."
    Good.

    Hey Trust, or anyone. Do you like money prizes or "stuff" prizes? In the golf biz we would be inclined to give away golf clubs. Would that work?

    Money always works, probably what most would say. But I like stuff too. I think it might work better instead of giving a specific item away, give like a gift certificate away for XXX amount to anything you sell. And you can always just experiment and see which type of promotion gets the most action from your affiliates.

    A little off topic, but I was reading a thread last Christmas about merchants sending some of their affiliate presents. It works. If you see an affiliate of yours that's been sending you sales, give them a little something out of the blue. Like Sean Connery said in the movie "Finding Forrester" Unexpected present at an unexpected time. Think that's how it went. But that was for getting the ladies

    Nice promotion for April, very doable:

    Any affiliate who does more than $100 in sales gets a $25 gift certificate and a 20% commission increase for the next 2 months.

    Any affiliate who does more than $500 in sales gets a $50 gift certificate and a 20% commission increase for the next 3 months.

    Any affiliate who does more than $1000 in sales gets a $100 gift certificate and a 20% commission increase for the next 4 months

    Any affiliate who does more than $2000 in sales gets a $200 gift certificate and a 20% commission increase for the next 6 months

    Any affiliate who does more than $5000 in sales gets a $500 gift certificate and a 20% commission increase for the rest of the year

    Thanks Trust. You deserve some of the credit. You helped get me pointed in the right direction.

    Does this mean you are in? Are you one of our affiliates?

    I've been in touch with Rick outside ABW, and I must say that he is one of the most responsive AMs I ever had the pleasure dealing with. He asks the right questions, listens to the suggestions and does what's best for both sides.

    I will sure nominate him when we have our 'best AM of the year' competition later this year at ABW.

    Rick: thanks for taking this business seriously!

    Cheers, Frank


    PS: luckily he didn't go for the competiton, otherwise Trust would't stand a chance...

    really like the idea behind the promotion schedule, Trust:
    Any affiliate who does more than $100 in sales gets a $25 gift certificate and a 20% commission increase for the next 2 months. Etc.

    We'll be launching our program in the coming week and initially will be offering all new affiliates the top-level commission payment plus a cash bonus for the top performing affiliate, but i would like to roll out a promotion similar to what you described once the program is up and running. thanks for the idea.
