    Clyde,

    You've mentioned all the right things. I'd only add about tracking by a "trusted third party" (if you are exclusive to SaS network, mention that too! if you're not - you should be!). Also: Auto Deposit is something that affiliates like...

    Well since they're required...

    If Gibraltar were a country, instead of a UK territory, you'd be third smallest:
    http://geography.about.com/cs/countr...lcountries.htm

    The CIA says you Gibraltarians only have 6.5 square kilometers of land area:
    http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/...k/geos/gi.html
    (that's ~2.5 square miles)

    With that big rock taking up most of the land, and with a population of 28,000 - that's freaking crowded!

    Gib: 28,000 people / 6.5 km^2 = 4,307 peeps / km^2

    Selected pop density from around the globe:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...lation_density

    In the US, the state with the highest population density is New Jersey at about 430 peeps / km^2. So you're... "like New Jersey, times 10".

    Of course, you're surrounded by beautiful waters and a great climate and fascinating people from around the world and you lack New Jersey's toxic waste sites and a lot more... http://www.almink.com/humor/njsucks.html Perhaps "Less crowded than Calcutta" would sound better...

    CIA also says you've got no arable land in Gib, so where are all those flowers coming from?

    And can you change your ABW nickname from clyderose to ClydeRose, the non-caps makes me "see" a weird word like chlamydia, where ClydeRose gives me that smoother flora dude feeling...

    Haha Donuts that was hilarious .... but i am in India and Bombay/Mumbai is crowded. I dont belive everything the CIA has to say as well but im not gonna get political.

    You know the real reason behind clyderose, when i joined the program, it was in the dumps, some of the affiliates were not paid for one and a half years. I cleared out nearly all the payments even though most of them did not join us again, with the bad experiences they had i doubt i would have joined the program.

    And now clyderose to take it over + roses


    i just checked what chlamydia was, i second geno your evil

    hola arts welcome

    Payment only at/after $100 commission threshold is a bit high, but I still belong to Amazon so the high threshold wouldn't deter me, but a statement like
    This agreement shall automatically terminate if the Affiliate has no sales during any 3 consecutive months.
    might. I've affiliated with some programs that started off slowly for me but then suddenly hit & I started to make sales. Otherwise your TOS seems fine.

    Btw, do you have individual product links with pictures? That's what converts for me.

    Hi Rhia, the individual product links with pictures can be done Say around 6 products for each country.

    "This agreement shall automatically terminate if the Affiliate has no sales during any 3 consecutive months." I made this rule Rhea, this is due to the amount of inactive partners we had when I got here. to be exact 400 partners together on both networks that we work with. As long as we are receiving hits in a decent amount im sure the account will not be terminated.

    The $100 is not for Shareasale as you would know, its for the other network. Rhia that policy is bound to change as we will begin working with Paypal soon to make affiliate payments that way. Currently for every payment we send out we get charged $17 so even on a $100 payment being charged nearly $20 is not really worth it dont you think.

    And last but not the least, Thank you Rexanne for the Comment!!!


    Oh Yes Stupid me! I forgot to tell you we are back on track 365 day cookie will be on once i mail Sahreasale support and the problem that developed after that the commission not showing up, is taken care of as well

    Yeah Baby!

    This is foolishness! Inactive affiliates harm you in no way what-so-ever. Just leave them alone and hope that you eventually get to the top of their to-do list!

    Once you terminate an affiliate, you can be sure that you will NEVER get on their sites because you ticked them off big time.

    If they joined in the first place, they saw something of interest. For pity sakes, 3 months is hardly even long enough to get your pages in some SE's much less tweek them and get them to rank well. You are lucky to even get into the top 5 after 3 months on many to-do lists much less on the pages!

    Affiliate marketing is a long term thing not an instant road to riches. Send them a polite reminder that you exist every couple of months and they may think, "Oh, yeah. I meant to do that."

    Do you think when we join, that we are going to just drop everything and put your links on our sites? Usually, joining happens when we were actually looking for something else for a project we are currently working on and happened to see you. Of course, we go back to whatever it was that we were doing and finish that. You may get in on the next go-round fixing up our sites, if your feed is ready when we grab the new ones.

    Whenever someone joins, go ahead and give them feed access right then and there in case they forget to ask for it. Then, the next time they go looking for feeds, you will be right there waiting to be grabbed.

    When someone joins, it does NOT mean they are hot for you. It is an indication that they saw something that they thought they might want to use some time. If you drop them, that will sure kill any interest that they ever had.

    And, always offer at least one coupon. If an affiliate makes a page of "Here are the coupons that we have," you will, at least, get on that page. That will remind them about you whenever they update the coupons.

    Also, make tons of banners in many different sizes and colors WITHOUT your URL on them. If they grab one to add color or interest to their pages, they will see a reminder of you every time the look at their own site!

    Someone has been giving you bad advise. Listen to ol' SSanf.

    SSanf

    In stead of Super Sh!t Stirrer you should have Defender of the Affiliate Race or the Merchant Undertaker hhahaha Thank you man. Im listning to everything and implementing some as well. But i do remeber everything you say and am making use of it when the time is right.

    SSanf the program was dead how do i explain what those affiliates were been on the program for over a year and not even a hit. I had to clear them off so i couldd begin working with the few who were atleast performing a little.

    Now im glad to say each affiliate on the program is atleast generating hits if not sales and even if they have no sales for 3 months im talking with them and trying to come up with ways to help them convert.

    About coupons I have put up links to the items on sale section to the countries we deliver to. In this section we have all our products that are on sale or at discounted price.

    Hi;

    Some advice from an AM;
    If you have what you consider dead affiliates in your program DON'T drop them. They are great leads. Visit their sites, send them notes on why they should link to you, give them suggestions on where a link will fit , give them an incentive (say double commisisons of the 2nd or third sale, even a small activation bonus)

    As others will tell you 3 months for new affiliates to get the links up is way to short, make it 6 at the min. if you feel you wat to trim.

    COMMUNICATE with the affiliates They are your sales team MOTIVATE
