Good News for Affiliates!
Jun 28th, 2010, 1:37pm
 
Just wanted to share with GCU artists our success with the Sell This Card feature.
 
A couple of months ago, we added GCU affiliate links to all our existing Squidoo lenses about cancer. These links were to our own cards.
 
Since it's almost the end of the month, we were checking our Store Report when we noticed some apparent discrepancies (in our favor) and we wondered what was going on. Well, it turned out in the month of June, new shoppers following our links bought not only our cards, but also from other artists - and because they came through our link, we got 50-cents commission on each card sold.
 
It came to $15 extra dollars in June which we wouldn't have otherwise earned. What a pleasant surprise!
 
So if you were wondering if you could earn extra $$ by using the Sell This Card feature, the answer is a most definite yes.
 
Edited to add: You can see affiliate sales by going to Manage Store - Earnings & Payments. The list of cards at the bottom includes affiliate sales.

We also had several unexpected sales of other artist cards and were as excited as if it happened to us.
Every time anyone  on GCU sells, it helps us all, because satisfied customers come back and next time they may buy my  cards, but for now they were satisfied because GCU does great cards!!!
 
Because they work so well we are updating our web http://valxart.com  to include links from our cards to GCU, but will also beginning to add more general links to other artist cards
