    Cool article/press mention...
    Just wanted to say congrats and pass on an article I read today...

    http://www.internetretailer.com/dailyNews.asp?id=22414

    For a short summary, CSN Stores is mentioned in a brief article concerning their last year growth number which is quite impressive. Brent and the rest of the folks from CSN Stores are some of my favourite people to work with at ShareASale so it is fun to see them getting some props for their hard work.

    Congrats guys and gals... !
    Thanks,

    Thanks for pointing this out Brian. We are really excited about the release of this article. It is a testament to all the hard work that goes on at CSN, every day, for the past five years. We plan on continuing this growth trend through agressively adding new stores, increased and pinpointing our advertising spend and training the heck out of our employees to ensure a pleasant experience to each and every customer we service. It is our goal to be the number one on-line retailer. This was definetly a step in the right direction.

    Thanks,

    Way-to-go Brent!

    You guys run a great operation and are at the top of the list of program management teams that I've dealt with. And, your sites are set up prefectly for affiliate link click-throughs, as opposed to all those merchant sites where that is a minor afterthought.

    You deserve the accolades.

    Keep up the good work, but keep in mind that too much expansion too quickly can cause problems in maintaining the standards you have set.

    By the way, have you thought of adding a barbecue site?

    Hi Affiliate Hound,

    I appreciate the kind words. It makes me so happy to see you type that, that is really great news. My main goal when I started the affiliate program with CSN Stores was to make sure we were as affiliate friendly and accomodating as possible. You are the folks doing all the hard work, and I appreciate that.

    Concerning the BBQ site, we do sell BBQ's currently on Teak Wicker and More.com. Our current grill manufacturer's are: Kingsford, Arctic, Vermont Castings, Firestone, Coleman, Minden and good old George Foreman. We currently have 55 grills on this site, with more planned to be added in the near future. We do not have a BBQ store in the works as of right now, but it is something that our buyer's are definetly looking into. I will certainly keep you posted on any headway for this type of site.

    Have a good one,

    NEVER ask Brent if they have... "fill in some odd household item noun here"

    By the end of the day, you'll have a feed of 6238 "odd nouns here"

    Go ahead! Ask him if he has a maibox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We just added another 200 mailboxes to that site today. im not sure how, I thought we already sold every one under the sun.

    Give us a month, it is really only a matter of time before we do. In the mean time, enjoy perusing through the 20 other toaster manufacturers we carry.

    p.s. you got me.

    I just saw this article and was going to post it up - glad to see I got beat to the punch - it's great news!

    My view of this article... I see people posting about ShareASale merchants and a few folks believe it's just a bunch of small merchants. $110M in sales, number 107 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide and they grew at 79% from prior year. And they are exclusively at ShareASale! Their 7-day and 30-day EPCs hover around $100. Average sale between $400 and $500. Active at ABW. Huge, improving data feed. They're on Autodeposit at SAS with a 60 day cookie.

    Not knocking them here when I say they're only number 16 on the ShareASale "Top 100 PowerRank report - point is, they're not the leader at SAS. They're climbing the ladder for sure as affiliates get onboard with them, but there are lots of programs they will have to work hard to surpass.

    If you've thought in the past that SAS is for smallies... I'd say it's time to re-evaluate.

    Congrats Brent - you've come a long way in a short period of time! I remain impressed and am happy to report that my mod work to include one of your stores in one of my prime affiliate websites has started. I look forward to riding the CSN train!

    Congrats CSN and Brent!

    Great news about your new all-stores datafeed. Now if we can fill the feed with all the rest of your stores and get an 88x31 for each and every store we'll be set

    Stayed Tuned.....

    There are, indeed, some nice numbers in that article - another fine accolade for CSNStores. My sincere congratulations to you, Brent, and to the entire crew at CSN. Evidently the Sox and Patriots aren't the only great teams in the Boston area.

    OK, I too, am eager to hear your BIG news. I have some SMALL news for you, regarding the Widgets discussion we had in Vegas. I'll try contacting you on Monday. (If you don't mind, can you please PM me the best number to reach you?)

    Thanks beachy! With around 500 employees it truly is a team effort. I would not be able to do my job without the next person helping out. It is really a great environment to work in. No ego's, everyone is in it to win it! The unselfish attitudes of our employee base mirror that of the Sox and Pats. I just wish I were making Big Papi's salary :-)


    I will PM you now. I am really excited to see how far the widget project has come.

    Thanks for checking in,

    Brent
