IM Affiliate Tracking Idea
« on: February 13, 2012, 07:56:37 AM »
Hello Jonathan,

I have always appreciated your products and integrity.  I was planning on having someone else do this project, but I think you are more capable and have a good insight to see this as something viable for affiliates.  A little background on me, I have been very busy over the past 1 1/2 years getting my B.S. in I.T. and I have been letting my IM business coast and not making much money.  Now I am in my last term, working on my Capstone Project.  I have chosen to do a web based affiliate tracking product possibly using PHP and MySQL.  I have got some good feedback from some affiliate marketers about the application because many affiliates are manually doing this task or hiring someone to do it.  Here is my idea for your review.  I'm still working through some of the requirements, but as I go through weekly units, I think of new requirements, risks, and other issues. 

This project will fulfill what many affiliate marketers are missing from their toolbox.  Every affiliate has many products which they are promoting either online or offline.  They could be promoting hundreds of products and services for which every time a product or a service is sold, they are paid a commission.  Affiliates can be scattered by having too many affiliate programs and products to sell and keeping track of sales, click statistics, specialized ads and links, and products are very important.  They may not even remember all the companies and products which they signed up to sell.  This configurable affiliate software tool will help solve that problem for thousands of affiliates.

For more detailed information please contact me.

Thank you,

Do NOT trust postings in public forums. If you don't want someone to take an idea you have or use information you have then DON'T post it publicly.

One forum member posted an idea he uses for keeping track of things using Excel.

Thanks, Meg, you are right.  I abbreviated my posting and if there is an interest, I can give more information.
