Jameco sent us this email today, below, we are going to politely decline (don’t worry, we like Jameco) – we thought this would be a good opportunity to make our policy on affiliate programs crystal clear – WE DO NOT DO THEM AND NEVER WILL.
My hope is that the name Jameco rings a bell. We certainly know who you are because we’ve observed that your website has been referring traffic to our site for some time now. We would like to propose a partnership that’s designed to both grow the amount of traffic you send to Jameco and compensate you at the same time.
We have recently launched an affiliate marketing program that pays approved affiliated web sites a commission on web visitors you refer to Jameco that place an order. The whole process is managed by a third party company, AvantLink, which provides the tracking software and pays the commissions.
We would like to offer you a 5% commission on all orders placed within 90 days of the referral. I would like to set up a very brief call to explain the program in a bit more detail and discuss with you strategies for increasing the traffic you send us and thus the commission check.
Please respond with a couple of half-hour windows so we can schedule a call.
Our promise to our readers and customers:
- We will never do affiliate links (Amazon, etc)
- We will never have a single ad or ad sense on Adafruit.com or Ladyada.net
- We will never have “sponsored projects”
- We are only supported by you, the customer
- Also, no blinking Christmas tree kits
Any time we post anything, link to anything, it’s because we like it!
