    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Shawn-Overstock.com:

    Incentivizing sales people is the best way to boost sales. I will always look for opportunities to boost our revenue, and pay affiliates as much as I can get away with in the process!

    So, with all that said, here's what I'll do - jump onboard with Overstock.com ( http://www.overstock.com/alliance.html ), generate some revenue, and make sure to keep me in the loop with how you are doing. In return, I'll give you a bonus.

    From now until August 31st, I'll give out the following bonus for active participants of ABW:

    Make less than $500 in sales = $25 bonus
    Make more than $500 in sales = $50 bonus
    Make more than $2,000 in sales = $200 bonus
    Make more than $5,000 in sales = $500 bonus
    Make more than $10,000 in sales = $1,000 bonus
    If you can make more than $50,000 in revenue, call me! The more money you generate, the bigger the bonus!


    I will tell you all that this is an EXCLUSIVE ABW promotion. I'm not telling the world about this, and it's not open to everyone. It's open to folks at ABW.

    Now, I'm not saying that people have to be active at ABW, but thay have to have an ABW account created. I'll verify with Haiko to make sure poeple are who they say they are.

    But, that's not the main event, in my book. The main event is generating revenue for Overstock.com and commissions + bonus for the affiliates. I want August to be our biggest month ever, and this is the perfect start in my eyes.

    So, let's get rocking! This promotion begins today and ends August 31st. Get in gear and sell, sell, sell!!! When September 1st rolls around, email me your results, I'll double-check in LinkShare and add the bonus to your commission check.

    It's as simple as that.

    If you need help selling, I'm here for you - 801-947-3119.

    If you aren't currently in our program, get in it and get moving! The race is on!

    Here's to more $$$$$ for everyone!

    Hi Haiko

    Thanks for the information.
    I try to promote the merchants who are active on ABW. If you have them on board I guess they must be doing something right. Up to now, it has been working, so thanks again Haiko.

    How does it work for Overstock? Do I need to send an email to Shawn. I signed up with them a few days ago and I made a few sales already, just got two today:
    Overstock.com, Inc. 913672 14-kt. Gold Ruby Shrimp Earrings $72.89 1 2087376
    Overstock.com, Inc. 900102 4-piece Kitchen Accessory Set $39.99 1 2088198
    Do I qualify for the bonus?

    I'm not posting everyday on ABW, but you're all part of my family [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Zeus - Absolutely! You just made an extra $25. You have until August 31st to boost your revenue as much as possible. The more sales you generate, the more money you make and the higher the bonus.

    Congrats and welcome aboard! Tell me what I can do to help out!

    Hi Shawn, thanks for the welcome.
    "If you can make more than $50,000 in revenue, call me! The more money you generate, the bigger the bonus"
    You got my attention, Shawn.
    It know it's possible. We just have to be confident with each other. It's always hard to trust the others. I appreciate when the affiliate managers go all the way to help their affiliates. If Linkshare tracks (I know it works), if you pay, we'll make sales and we'll all be happy campers.

    Zeus - Agreed! Business is about relationships. The problem with the Internet is that it takes the relationship out of business, or rather, it makes it easy for businesses to neglect the relationship. They might as well have called it the "impersonalnet".

    I don't want affiliates. I want sales people that I have a relationship with. I look forward to working closer with you to help generate money for the both of us.

    Please let me know if there is anything I can do that you feel would help boost sales. I'm here to help...

    Shawn,

    Yor attitude towards your sales force is just what I look for in a Merchant Partner.

    As this industry evolves ... The smart Merchants will come around and realize it is to mutual benifit to treat their affiliate with respect.

    The rest will wither away or just keep afloat at best.

    Way to go ... Shawn

    Dave

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. It means a lot to me!

    Also, don't forget about exclusive offers! Email me with a product category that you do well in, and we can create an exclusive discount just for you! Also, your website name is clearly visible on our product page.

    Here's an example:
    MyBargainBuddy.com

    Haiko was able to gather a few outstanding affiliate managers here and to open the communication channel between merchants, trusted third parties and us, the lonely affiliates. I know this kind of positive attitude will spread. The ParasiteWare issue was a way to sort the good from the bad. As dhelle said "The smart Merchants will come around and realize it is to mutual benifit to treat their affiliate with respect" It will come. We're just at the beginning of a bright future.

    Kudos to Haiko for bringing it all together.

    Also, Andy w/ TigerDirect is an outstanding chap! He's done amazing things with his affiliate program, and you can tell that he truly cares about the affiliates!

    Given that, you should easily bust the $10K revenue mark and get the $1,000 bonus!

    Now, can you bust the $50K mark? If you can... your bonus will be off the hook...

    Good luck, let me know what I can do to help boost your sales!

    How 'bout computer hardware? Check out the DRM (Dynamic Rich Media) links that display best sellers for various areas. Why not display best selling computers, or best selling products from our Computers & Home Office department.

    We also have a host of software titles...

    Thanks,

    Wow! Excellent tag line / motto / mission statement or whatever the heck you want to call it! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] I think those words should be up next to the logo on every page of this site. Much better than "make your site the best' imho.

    I think that must be what was keeping the home page on one of my sites from loading. I couldn't remember what I had there and it wouldn't load in so I couldn't see what it was. All I know is it was a Linkshare link. I finally had to remove it because I can't have that happening on my Home page.

    ummm... I'm aiming at $10K, and am going to spend this weekend to refresh the pages.

    Me too, the dynamic links were slowing pages down so much I had to take them off awhile ago.
    Back to the old LS product link maker
