I only do the offsite Affiliate program, so a lot of things I do not need to know about. That being said, I think this is a great idea. It will certainly come in handy if I start a blog.

With the "How to Become a Billionaire from Jelly Double Dong Commission", could you provide some "Best way to flog a partner" information? I know that some people have lots of experience in that area.

I've tried posting widgets in general, and they generally confuse me. And even tho I've been an affiliate for over a year now, I'm still not entirely sure how to read all my reports, so I know other people are confused too.

Also, I too would be interested in learning the best way to flog a partner with a jelly double dong.

The key to successful flogging with jelly double dongs is all in the wrist! There are two schools of thought about how to swing the dong: Team Tomahawk Swing and Team Golf Club Swing.

But seriously...thanks for the input so far, y'all! If there's anything about the affiliate program that's complicated, needs some explaining, or just seems difficult to manage, post it here. This is part of how programs get better.

I have trouble with the reports too.

Alyjazz Alyjazz
Yea, I find the reports part to be a little confusing all in all.

Reports and how to make the widgets would be great ones.

Also, more detailed info on the Team Tomahawk Swing and the Team Golf Club Swing, preferably with pictures or video

I would LOVE to better understand the Affiliate Program and how it can really be taken advantage of. It's not only good for us as individuals but for the company as well (which, in turn, is still good for us!). I hope someday soon it'll join forces with a At-Home-Party system too. I SO volunteer to run national parties because I've been going absolutely crazy excited about my own!

Oooh, so far reports have the early lead! I was not expecting that. Good to know.

And wow, nearly EVERYONE wants to be a Double Dong Billionaire. I'll get to work on that presentation Y'all are cracking me up. Love it.

I'm guessing that Jelly Double Dong Commission thing isn't real... which is unfortunate, as it was the first one that caught my attention.

Aww, the other topics don't sound as exciting but are helpful for affiliates. It'd be crazy if we were all billionaires anyway

These workshop topics are geared toward helping people who are new to the affiliate program, interested in the affiliate program, or simply want to learn more about the tools available to them. A lot of people could probably improve their affiliate sales if they had a little bit of help laying some groundwork for using affiliate tools or keeping track of their progress through their reports. The topics listed are not geared toward people who have been doing affiliate work for years; however, I'd love to hear some ideas for more advanced workshops.

Are there any other topics you'd like to see presented in a workshop? Or anything you'd like presented as a tutorial or other resource?

This is great data so far, folks. I'm leaning toward presenting Affiliate Reports in the next workshop right now, but I'd still like more votes

I don't know if this is information you are allowed to share, but I would be curious about the numbers earned for the highest paid affiliates?

Even if you can't give exact numbers, but maybe a range.

I would also like more workshops for personal stores.

Here are a few questions:

Can we add additional Prestashop modules without messing with the Eden functionality? How? Ex: Facebook Like Box or Twitter Follow Buttons

Can we make blog Widgets that lead to our store?

Can we add a live chat function like the Expert Help that is on top of EF?

Can we make kits that are unique to our stores, or sales like Buy xx and get xx for free?

Personally, I want to open a real Eden franchise. I mean... HELLO Amazing opportunity. I would even move to a larger city, and hire Jobthingy

Though the idea of jelly dongs isn't really appealing, I think you're on to something. Offering ways or suggestions to help build an income is a really good idea. Most people have an affiliate program to make money, but don't really use the different options to their advantage (widgets, reviews, social media, personal store, text links etc) giving them ways of how to use things to draw income would be very helpful!

I would love ideas on how best to utilize the program to make money. Maybe good places to promote, how to promote, and how to get reaccuring customers through your link.

Wow those are awesome ideas.

Rockin' Rockin'
Wow, these are great suggestions. I'll definitely explore these ideas and see how I could put together a workshop for April or May. Thank you so much for the feedback!

I'll get back to y'all about a couple of the specific questions shortly.

"Can we add additional Prestashop modules without messing with the Eden functionality? How? Ex: Facebook Like Box or Twitter Follow Buttons"

Yes!
I found something called Add This that generates code that you can embed in the product.tpl page in your theme's folder. Add This offers a few different button combinations, and you can customize it relatively easily by altering the code. (Read more about customizing it here)

If you just want a Facebook like button, here is one: Facebook Like buttons

"chat function like Expert Help"
I don't think we use that too much on EF Main, so I wouldn't recommend trying to duplicate it into EPS. I don't know the official status of live chat support here but I know we don't have someone available all the time.

I'll get back to y'all on the rest of these questions soon.

Here's an example of the Add This feature in use: Example EPS Product Page

Any time the words Billionaire and Double Dong are in the same sentence, I'm down.
