2008-12-14 [Hedda]: sfbok doesn't have an affiliate program, it seems.
The Noble Collection and Sierra Trading Post don't want Elftowners as customers and told us to fuck off.
2008-12-14 [Khronos Atmosphaera]: Whoa... why would they say that?
2008-12-14 [Artsieladie]: How rude! It's their loss!
2008-12-15 [Skydancer]: how weird for people to do something like that, you would think they would be happy to have such a large base of users seeing their stuff.
2008-12-15 [Artsieladie]: Yeah seriously! Maybe they aren't interested in any more business? Some businesses I find have such attitudes, though, like they are doing YOU a favour by their mere existence or something. Whatevah happened to the days when businesses appreciated their customers and welcomed new ones? :P
2008-12-15 [Khronos Atmosphaera]: Maybe they just instantly assumed that Elftowners are like Myspacers... >=(!
2008-12-15 [Hedda]: The problem is that I don't know why they denied the application. It can be that Elftown was too small for them to bother with, that Elftown was doing a backup then, that they think that elves are dorky or that they think that they will get no new customers and only pay for their old ones.
2008-12-15 [Dragonous]: A lot of bussisnises get the money and forget the first rule of sales: The Customer is ALWAYS right.
2008-12-15 [Anvikit]: So this is just for affiliate programs? Not for good quality online shops?
Maybe you should add that to the description.. so people don't keep suggesting really nice places.. .. that can't be added just because they have no affiliate..
I thought this was gonna be more like artsy sites, and places to find things made by members, and other handmade things, and geeky stuff that we are all into..
2008-12-15 [Artsieladie]: Hmm... [Dragonous], it seems to be a motto that's fading fast, though. I built my business on 'word of mouth', not advertising. When you have happy and very satisfied customers, they will not only return, but they will do all of your advertising FOR YOU AND in doing so, they promote your business by automagically giving their approval and so, their recommendation
2008-12-15 [Hedda]: [Anvikit]: You're very welcome to suggest other shops/sites, but I'll not put them up unless they give me money because that wouldn't be fair to the ones who do.
Another bonus with the affiliate programs is that I can see exactly what you buy through the links and I can therefore recommend things that interest Elftowners and remove shops that fail to sell to Elftowners.
Almost all shops have affiliate programs and if they haven't, they are probably too small and unimportant anyway.
By the way: I just got accepted to ShareASale, so now I have some 2440 more programs to select from... The ShareASale network has a lot very small and odd places though, so it's hard to find something there unless I know what to search for.
2008-12-15 [Hedda]: I have to point out that no one has bought anything here yet (unless you bought it today)... Some hundred clicks though, but unfortunately, I don't get paid for them.
I hope it becomes better when I've sorted out the really good shop and you can start rating them.
2008-12-16 [Hedda]: Things From Another World is nice enough not only to give me a bonus, but also a free shipping for you who go through that link. What a nice way to tread Elftowners!
Then you really have a reason to shop via Elftown instead of just bookmarking them.
2008-12-16 [Hedda]: Time to get those Angel and Buffy albums!
Oh, they have an Angel Puppet! I loved that episode!
2008-12-16 [Dragonous]: the angel puppet that kicked Spikes @$$? cool might get that for my girlfriend she loves angel.
2008-12-16 [Dragonous]: uh maybe not $200 is a bit much
2008-12-16 [Hedda]: Yea, they should have a smaller one.
2008-12-16 [Hedda]: Printing services is updated, but still nothing from USA.
Scandinavia, NL and UK are covered though. The mugs were quite expensive (about $10) and I don't know what the shipping is, but it would be a great gift!
Hm... Maybe I should start to sell mugs with the content on www.cathug.com
