A few questions regarding the affilate program.
« on: August 10, 2008, 09:37:03 AM »
Hello,

Well I have been with lunar for a while now and being fairly happy with the service have decided to open a site or two aimed at making some affiliate commissions.  I have a couple questions before I develop any sites that I'm sure someone could answer.

1.) Someone is searching for hosting and has visited another site before mine that is a lunar affiliate and that viewer clicked through but did not purchase a package.  If this viewer now clicks through to lunar from my site and makes a hosting purchase who gets the credit? 

2.) A perspective customer visits my site, follows a link to a hosting package but prefers to call in their order and uses the "call us" number posted on the package copy.  How can the order possibly be tracked to my affiliate account?

3.) Linking: I know how to link to the directory in lunars urls example:  http://www.lunarpages/whatever/  This is not a problem. However, what about linking directly to links such as http://www.lunarpages.com/solutions.php -- http://quicksite-hosting.lunarpages.com/index.php -- http://www.lunarpages.com/free-bonus.php -- http://www.lpdedicated.com/ -- http://www.lunarpages.com/desc/freedomain.htm -- your linking structure here is not formated into directories.

That's about it for now ;)

Thanks.

Hopefully I can help you out here. :)

1. In that instance, you would get the credit. The last referrer always gets the commission. So if someone clicked through an affiliate URL in Google by accident and then knowingly clicked through your link on your website, you get the credit.

2. In these cases, the customer can simply tell us "I heard about Lunarpages from rob73". Our sales associates note this information and pass it directly to me. I add every commission of this nature manually to ensure you get your due credit. Also, if you realize down the road that a client signed up but you didn't get credit, just shoot an email to affiliate@lunarpages.com and I'll take care of it by adding it retroactively.

3. Do you mean linking to these pages using your Affiliate URLs? If so, here's some examples for you:

http://lunarpages.com/id/USERNAME/goto/solutions.php - Solutions page
http://lunarpages.com/id/USERNAME/goto/lpquicksite - LPQuicksite Hosting Plan
http://lunarpages.com/id/USERNAME/goto/basic-hosting/ - Basic Hosting Plan

So basically, just add "/goto/whatever" and you'll likely get to the right page. If you have a specific place you'd like to link, please let me know and I can ensure it's the proper tracking.

Also, for LPDedicated, your link would look like this:

http://lpdedicated.com/id/USERNAME
