Weblog Entry

WDN Affiliates

November 28, 2006

We just launched what I think is a neat way of allowing people to attend Web Directions for free, or substantially less than the ticket price.

Taking a cue from Amazon, we’ve set up an affiliates program for those wanting to attend. The basic gist: Get an affiliate code from us. If you get just four other people to sign up with your code, maybe through your blog or by signing up all your friends, you’re coming for free baby.

Of, if you prefer, say you and four friends/coworkers want to come en masse; ask us for a code, and when you apply that code to your order one of those seats is free. You end up each saving about 20% off the listed price. What if you’ve already registered? Get a code anyway, refer four people, and you’ve got a refund coming your way.

The catch? No catch. Just good old-fashioned free conference seats, to see some of the best speakers working on the web today. Going to play along at home? Let us know in the comments, we’d love to hear what you think about this idea.

That’s very generous. If only we could get that kind of hookup from the airlines. :)

Piggy-backing off the previous post – the affliate program page has a slight typo in the last paragraph.

“The combination of amazing speakers, fantastic location, and -> ofter <- hours events”

Just thought you’d like to know.

Anyone out there in airline land who’d like to offer a deal to Vancouver, we’re all ears!

This is such a cool idea, thanks for starting this up I am going to give it a go and see if I can get four signed up so I can go for free to teh next Web Directions.

It’s really a good idea with this affiliate program. Did anybody of the affiliates got it to recruit four other people to sign up for the conference?
I think next year I will also take part in this program.
