    I would like to know if a merchant was going to do a short term promotion, which would you rather see;

    A discount coupon you can pass on to your customers or an extra commission for the same period? Any other ideas are equally as helpful.

    Thanks,

    How about both? A discount coupon, AND a higher commish to make up for the lowered ticket price!

    Commission, commission, commission.

    Lots of people do coupons -- all the time. Coupons CUT my take and they've never once motivated me to build a new page.

    Every time I've seen a company offer an upped commission for a promotion, I've built new pages.

    If possible both. But i think for a short term promotion, think customers first, and people love coupons. Some people only shop during sales.

    May all your ups and downs be in bed

    It's an excellent offer for existing affiliates. Very nice.

    To inspire new affiliates, you might want to consider a similar offer, but announce it 2-4 weeks before it starts. That way, we have time to learn about you product and build some proper pages.

    Cedric,

    How about if I offer the double commision offer to any ABW member who signs up for our program this week, and they can choose there week of double commisions. If people are interested in that I will consider it. It will make my job more challenging, but it sounds like fun!
    The only stipulation is signing up for the program this week and I will have to work out how long the offer can last.

    Can't speak for anyone else, but that would do it for me. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
