    September Newsletter - New Record, AffiliateFairPlay, and more!
    I'm going to start posting a portion of our newsletter here. I hope this makes it easier to see what's happening at AC Lens.

    Thanks

    New Record, AffiliateFairPlay, and more!

    Hi Everyone,

    Wow! That about sums up the AC Lens affiliate record for August. We blew past our old record by over 40% and there's still two days to go. The best part of our new record month is that we saw increased sales across all different types of affiliate marketers. We're hoping to keep the momentum going and we have several exciting things to get us there in September.

    10% off a years supply of contact lenses!

    First, AC Lens will be having a 10% off sale on a year supply of some of our most popular contact lenses. There's no coupon code needed and each lens eligible will be clearly marked on our new sales page here: http://www.aclens.com/discount-contact-lenses.asp. The sale will start Tuesday, September 4th but you can add the affiliate link to the page now and we'll update the sale prices next week. Affiliates should notice a higher average order this month with the increased discount on a years supply of lenses and you'll want to stress these savings on your own sales pages. **Please note the 10% off a year's supply can not be combined with coupons or other offers. Here's a text link for your site:

    AffiliateFairPlay Monitoring

    AC Lens is also happy to announce we've partnered with AffiliateFairPlay.com to monitor the use of adware/spyware in our program. AFP is a leader when it comes to ensuring fair practices in the affiliate marketing space. If you haven't heard of AFP, here's a quick rundown:

    "AffiliateFairPlay's approach when addressing fair practices is to focus on the actual behaviors leading to unfair competition and abuse in the Affiliate Marketing Industry. AFP does not focus on the technology used to achieve the behavior (whether through a software application or on a web site) but rather what the actual behaviors are and what the effect of these behaviors is on the Affiliate Marketing channel."

    We hope the addition of AFP will help keep rogue affiliates out of our program and ensure a fair environment for all affiliates who want to promote AC Lens. To read more about AffiliateFairPlay.com and what they do, please visit their site at www.affiliatefairplay.com.

    Other Programs

    Our UK division, LensCatalogue.co.uk, is off to a great start in its first full month. We've had a considerable number of new affiliates join specifically for Lens Catalogue and sales are beginning to pour in. If you do any type of marketing in the UK or Europe, you'll want to get LensCatalogue links up asap.

    If you run vouchers (coupons) on a UK site, be sure to add LC5 which is good for 5 off a 60 order. This offer expires 12/31/07 and may not be combined with sales and special offers on LensCatalogue.co.uk.

    Here's a quick logo, voucher, and text link for those who want to expand their UK offers:

    Also, don't forget to add BaseballRampage.com to your marketing mix. Baseball Rampage offers a full line of baseball equipment and would be a great addition to your sporting goods site/section as we quickly approach the holiday season. At 9% per sale, the Rampage program is the highest paying baseball retailer with expert affiliate management and has the same flexibility you've come to expect from AC Lens.

    The program has coupon codes, an open PPC policy, and more. You can join the Baseball Rampage affiliate program here: http://www.baseballrampage.com/affiliates.asp.

    Thanks...we've been with AFP for a couple of months now but Kellie just came out with her cool logo so I thought I'd announce it.
