Q. If I'm an affiliate, how
do you keep track of how many referrals I send to you?
A. When a caller call's any
of our Chat Line numbers, our system will recognize the assigned
affiliate "509" number. Callers are not asked to remember any
numbers or provide any information. They simply call directly
into the phone system using the affiliate "509" number provided
on your website, in the banner, or ad in front of them, and
access the live chat system. Once they enter our system, our IVR
(Integrated Voice Response - Datelines) track the number called
per each Affiliate code.
Q. Can callers call your office and get a
Trail Membership number?
A. No. Callers can only call chat line phone number provided by
the affiliate. This assures that the affiliate gets credit for
using their own direct "509" number to the chat system. Callers
can only call our office in order to buy a membership or for
help in using the system.
Q. What are the advantages of being paid for
1. Firstly, you don't have to be concerned about customers
purchasing anything. You make your money simply by referring
potential customers to us.
2. Getting persons to call our ChatLines and using Free access
to live chat is Easy as Pie. Thousand's of Free callers access
the system daily. It's easy to give something away for Free.
3. Caller's simply call the direct "509" number provided by the
affiliate to access our Chatlines. They don't have to speak to
any operator; they don't have to punch in their credit card
number or give any information whatsoever. It couldn't get any
simpler. They don't have to Give anything in order to get their
Free access to Live Chat. They just have to call using your
assigned "509" direct access number. That's all!
Q. If I'm a member of a commission based program
do I get paid on all sales regardless of whether they are make
through the web site or through your office?
A. Yes. When a customer orders on
the web site they will always be asked to use the 4 digit coupon
code. By using this number they will be available to participate
in promotions and giveaways. We frequently reward customers with
Free time or discounts on packages of time, if they have given
the 4 digit coupon code (affiliate ID number).
When a customer orders through the office, they are also asked
for the 4 digit coupon code from the website they are on or from
the advertisement they are calling on. If for some reason they
don't remember it, our customer service specialists are experts
at helping them find where they originally got it from.
The vast majority of caller's however, remember the 4 digit
coupon code that they first used because it is their "ticket" to
Free Stuff once they are members as well.
Q Is their any advantage for a customer to call the
customer service line in order to get a paid membership?
A. Yes. If someone calls our customer service line, they can get
access to Free time and be entered into other promotional
offerings. This is a major incentive for persons to order.
Again, another advantage to this is that they are always asked
for the 4 digit coupon code in order to get free time or access
to other promotions. It's another way of insuring we get your 4
digit coupon code (Affiliate ID number).
Q. When someone clicks on a TALK121 banner that I
have on my site and they go to your site, how will the customer
know what coupon code (i.e. my Affiliate ID number) to enter when
getting their Free account or they are signing up for a paid
A. When someone clicks over from your site, our site tracks which
affiliate is sending the traffic and flashes the appropriate
Affiliate ID (coupon code) in several prominent places on the
site. No other coupon codes will be listed on the site other
than the coupon code (affiliate ID) of the referring site.
Q. What is an advantage of being paid a percentage
commission on each sale?
A. With this method you are
linked to all the purchases of your referral for as long as this
customer is still ordering. If the customer is still ordering
months or years later, you take advantage of their entire
ordering term. A huge percentage of first time purchasers,
re-order and continue to re-order again and again. While you may
not see your commissions coming in as fast as the CPA method,
over time you will start to see your commissions mushroom as
members re-order and continue re-ordering.
Q. What are some of the advantages of your ChatLine
program over some of the online Personals companies?
A. 1.The biggest advantage is the reason stated above. Many if
not most affiliate programs that deal with any form of chat or
personals programs pay out Commissions on the first order
only. However the bulk of the revenue in "this business" is made
from re-order's. We let you take advantage of that fact if you
are a member of the commission based payout program.
2. For CPA based programs, most dating, chat and
personals sites make the referred person sign up in some way, by
giving their email address, name, personal information, as well
as often being asked for credit card information and sometimes
pages of personal likes and dislikes as well. Whewwww! There are
usually a lot of hoops that referrals have to go through in
order for you to get paid with most programs.
3. If referred users visit Talk121, do not make a purchase, but
come back to the site at a later time (up to 1 year, providing
our cookie remains on their computer) the web site will still
display the coupon code of the original referring affiliate, to
make sure they are credited with the referral.
Our CPA only requires the referral call one of our chatlines and
access the Live Chat using the affiliate assigned "509" number.
They are not prompted by our systems for any information
whatsoever. None, zip! Just call and get FREE access to Live
Chat on one of the hottest chatlines in the USA. What could be
Q. What would be another
advantage of belonging to the ChatDollars® affiliate program? Aren't
there a lot of 'chat' programs out there?
A. While online chat and online personals sites have had
affiliate programs for some time now, there are very few if any
other phone based Chat Lines offering affiliate programs. This
is a multi-million dollars a year industry, with the market wide
open for the genius of smart affiliate marketers to prosper
from. Most affiliates are looking for a 'hot' product that has
not been saturated in the market by a lot of other affiliates
Q. Just how popular is
A. According to Wordtracker (June 5, 2003) "chat" was the 177th
most searched keyword out of over 350 million keywords in the
prior 60 days. Also over 1.7 million persons searched for the
word 'chat' in May 2003 on the Overture network.
According to Overture's Search Term suggestions, almost 50,000
searches were done in May 2003 for the term "chat line", on the
Overture network, plus thousands more for variations like free
chat line, phone chat, voice chat, etc.
