Have there been any talks about xenForo having an affiliate system?
Here's one thread ... IPB will have it soon.
Referrals aren't an affiliate system.
kindly explain difference
An affiliate system allows you to make money by referring people who purchase a product.
The referral system posted there is for referring new members to a forum, for trophies.
An affiliate system (If this is what the OP meant) would be for referring possible new sales to XenForo for some benefit to the affiliate when the one directed makes a purchase (Credit or something similar).
This could be very beneficial for XF, increasing both sales and the much needed publicity.
I see your distinction ... imho we need every tool possible to
1. bring in more members.
He is asking for an affiliate program specific to XenForo.com
We're talking about xenForo and you've made 2 posts about IPB.
If you don't mind me asking, how come?
ah. it would nice to have an affiliate program for xenforo.
vbseo has one that is accessible from their footer on the vb powered forum.
not sure if vB has one though.
vB has one through Commission Junction (or they used to).
An advertising system which succeeds in a network enviroment with cross platform data exchange, increases individual site activities and traffic. An interactive block should offer menus and external links allowing properties to share their content externally. Utilizing a non-intrusive collective bargaining system will compliment your property's ability to attract high value campaigns.
Leveraging a network to assist in better utilizing, underutilized real estate is a monetization scheme that companies such as Internet Brands do in order to provide and generate growth & value.
I am also interested if there are plans to have some sort of referral system.
I can certainly refer many clients to switch to xF or have new sites built on xF. If there is some sort of referral credits, it would be great. Say, once a user has referred X amount of licensed members, he will have a free license for himself.
This is different than affiliate systems, where you're rewarded with money for referring people to your sales..
I still cannot purchase a xF license myself, since there's no Paypal in my country and online transactions are still not supported by our credit cards.
I would appreciate any official word from Ashley (the business guy) or Kier/Mike regarding this issue.
I like to compare with the best solution at the moment.
If you have a better solution ... I would love to hear it.
you all are talking about different things
the threadstarter wants to get an "link" from xenforo.com where he get's money, if somebody buy xenforo coming from his link
I'd like to see an affiliate program, to, as there's a couple of sites which I use, which have dumped VB in favour of XF and I'd like to give them some cash back by buying my first couple of licenses
