When Jon Levine 1st posted about TheNerds affiliate program here at the 5 Star forums - I told him this was a program that sound like I designed it. It has every affiliate-friendly feature that I like programs to have, so I'm VERY happy to welcome Jon and TheNerds into the 5 Star family of pro-active affiliate programs.

Important Update:

Apologies to all! TheNerds site has been down due to a MAJOR DOS attack.
They have been working with the FBI and their own people to isolate and stop this attack and will get the site up and running as soon as possible.

Of course, this could not have come at a worse time for the affiliate program, since we just announced it. Until they get the site up and running, you can sign-up directly at ShareASale. By the time you join and get approved the site should be back up.

Hey Jon,

Thanks for keeping us informed and I'm glad you guys recovered quickly.

BTW the affiliates I'm talking to are all VERY excited about this program.
many of them have been looking for a good electronics or computer program to replace merchants that either weren't paying well or converting well.

Ok guys - let's Rock!

I am very happy to annouce that we have just launched the first, in what is to be many, RSS feeds for our affiliates.

This first one will be for the distribution of our weekly "The Goods" hot deals list that is currently sent out via email. If you would like to have this list delivered directly to you via RSS, just point your news aggregator to:

Soon we will be launching more RSS Feeds to distribute our weekly best sellers, coupons, and any SPIFs or specials we have.

Stay tuned!

Linda Buquet

Good going Jon.

I noticed on another forum an affiliate asking about how to append their affiliate ID to the feed. I assumed the feeds you were building already had that feature built-in. That's what affiliates want when I said they are anxious to get the feed. Not sure how you would do it in SAS but I'm certain there is a way. It would be similar to a datafeed. When affiliates pul your feed their ID is embedded in each product link. That's what affiliates want your RSS feed for too.

Check with Brian. Maybe he's already helped other merchants implement this feature in SAS.

More good stuff from the NERDS!

Thanks for keeping us informed Jon!

Yourlinks aren't live though and are spreading the page too wide.
Do you know what you need to do to fix it otherwise I can see if Larwee has time to fix it??? I don't have time to and it would kill my carpal.


New Member
Thanks Linda.

Actually, the links are not live for a reason. These are preformatted for ShareASale except for the affiliate's ID code which needs to be substituted for "!!USERID!!" in the link. If they were live in their current form, they wouldn't lead anywhere.

I should have posted this when I made the original post.

That being said, I don't know how to make the "wrap" without actually making the link live (using the URL /URL tags). Is there a way to do this?


Linda Buquet

Oh I see now. Didn't look closely to see the SAS id in the link. You are right they should stay that way. That one part of the page will just be wide, that's OK.
