Kirk, I've probably 'sold' ten people on your product.... You should implement some sort of incentive program...

Now that we have web sales, we're thinking of implementing an Affiliates Program where people you refer would get a discount and you would get a small payment.

It would require you to have a website with a link in it to our sales site.

Court,

Gotcha. I wouldn't put a link on my site... So I guess that's the deal.

Why not put it on a page that isn't part of your normal site?  Just create another folder, for instance: "PM" and in that folder put a file called index.html that has the link in it.  Then you tell your friends to go to "http://www.your domain name here.com/PM/"

That would suffice.  And it wouldn't clutter up your main site.

Hi Kirk,

I'm also very interested in a Photo Mechanic referral program!  Please do try to get this up and running soon, I'd be happy to put a link on my web site.

Cheers,

I've never felt the need to be compensated for assisting another photographer with finding a solution to a software or equipment problem. What goes around comes around.

My clients don't expect me to pay them for referring somebody to me.

To me each new customer helps keep the companies I use afloat in these difficult times, and in the case of Camerabits this includes their being able to continue to offer such great support and regular updates of PhotoMechanic.

And no, they haven't paid me to say that !

Has there been any progress on establishing an affiliate program?  I will be demonstrating and recommending Photo Mechanic to fellow members of my professional photography organization on October 26, as part of talk that I am giving.  An affiliate type link would welcomed by all concerned, especially if a nominal group discount could somehow be incorporated.

We don't yet have an affiliates program.  Please do call the sales folks and explain your situation they'll be glad to help out.  (503)-547-2800

I found this thread by accident but I would be interested in promoting PM on my site if you would have an affiliate program or something similar.
Working on Mac, OSX, iOS and with some Canons.
Allways shooting RAW.
