Topic: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

Hello, everyone.  Some of the street team members got the first test blast of the Pre-release Affiliate Program email-- many thanks for your immediately enthusiastic responses and many thanks also for the patience of those who are awaiting the second, and final, version of the mailing. 

This is a super cool promotional program for three reasons:

1.  Word about Joe's music can be spread far & wide
2.  A little profit is possible for those who spread the word
3.  The chance to win a signed Joe Bonamassa-inspired Les Paul is also possible for those who spread the word!

As you may have seen in the email or will see in the next email, it's very simple to become part of this program:

1.  Sign up to receive the link that you'll send by email to as many people as you can
2.  For every CD that someone buys by clicking on your link you'll earn $2 (everyone's link is unique)
3.  The person with the most CDs bought through their link by Sept. 30 will win the JB Les Paul!

I know that there has been some confusion about both this program and the Amazon pre-ordering, and Joe's management apologizes for that confusion.  Regarding Amazon, they have had a systems change that now prevents them from offering content streaming on pre-ordered CDs; Joe's management was not made aware of this change until after the suggestion to pre-order was made the June Newsletter--for which, again, they sincerely apologize.  Please know that pre-ordering from Amazon is certainly still an option for those who are not interested in the pre-release affiliate program, but that the streaming content will not occur due to their new system limitations. 

This pre-release affiliate program will enable you, family, friends, and any other contact that orders through your link to get Live from Nowhere in Particular will get it with free shipping & handling, too.

If you have other questions that this post does not answer, please feel free to email me and I will get an answer from management for you.

Thanks so much, everyone, for your support of Joe in this and in every other way that you work on his behalf!  We appreciate it.

Melissa,

I pre-ordered mine this morning, but I think I screwed up the free shipping and handling charges. I was so excited to get my hands on this CD that I didn't fill out the form correctly. sad However, as I mentioned on another post, I folded up the corner of my electronic order form, so when you reach in the barrel to pull out the winner of the guitar, just feel around for that fold, OK? wink

i don't think its a drawing for the guitar Roy. i think it said it goes to the top seller.

All I can say is ..... AWESOME!

Thanks!

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

Thank you Melissa, for all of the clarification.  This is a VERY exciting, EXTRA FUN way to promote Joe and the new CD, isn't it??!!!  I can't even BEGIN to imagine how many more dollars will flow into JOE'S POCKETS (most importantly) because of the enthusiastic efforts of 'The Faithful'.  HOW FUN!!!

I wish I knew MORE people - but everyone I DO KNOW will CERTAINLY be hearing from me.  Which leads me to ask another question.  Believe it or not, I actually know a few people who do NOT own a computer, and/or, if they do, they don't shop online.  What, if anything, can we do for them in the way of sales??

Lastly, let me publicly state, right here and now, that if, by some chance, my efforts have a snowball effect and the JBLP ends up at MY house, I promise I WILL allow you visitation rights, and, if you continue to be such an exemplary friend, and generally outstanding person, I may even allow you to touch it.  All kidding aside, once again I sincerely appreciate all of the efforts, creativity and HARD WORK that you, Joe's Management, and his FAITHFUL FANS put forth in order to help take Joe to the next level. 

I'm looking VERY forward to seeing this CD skyrocket to the TOP OF THE CHARTS.  I also CANNOT WAIT TO HEAR IT!!!!  The clips are FANTASTIC!!!  The anticipation is nearly enough to drive a girl MAD!!!!!

I know that Joe could play one of those kid's guitars with the plastic strings and make it sound good-

Yeah...shameless seems about right.

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

Great idea, and I've signed up and sent an email to my friends.  One problem was when I bought one for myself through the link using Mozilla Firefox I wanted to change the quantity to 4 copies instead of 1 but there was no way for me to do that.  Maybe it's because it's Firefox and not Internet Explorer?  Anyway, allowing people to up the number rather than do it multiple times for each cd might juice sales further.

Kudos to everyone involved in this great promotion and thanks for your hard work.  I can't wait to get my hands on LFNIP!

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

This is all very exciting. I have already signed up and e mailed all my contacts. I'm pretty sure I won't be the winner of the coveted Les Paul but will do all I can to help.

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

I too have shamelessly spammed everyone I know...

I'm guessing that it is Joe who is putting up the guitar as the incentive?

We love you man!

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

hey,
great idea and what a prize !

well, are there other links for europeans?
i checked some of the links members has posted, but then there was just the opportunity of usd.

first of all i have no idea of paypal and no credit card. so i myself couldn't do it : (

and second, i don't think that anyone here would order sth. when they only could pay via usd...
and it's too much expenditure to change the money or/and at least maybe pay extra money for this work.
it's much easier to go to a shop..or order it by amazon, ebay or where ever.

please correct me if i am wrong, i don't mean it badly ; )
if there's any realistic chance i would take part !

hope you get what i want to say big_smile

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

I am going to elaborate on this more later but I would like to encourage everyone to share the word about this as much as possible.
I would personally love to win the guitar, so i do encourage those not interested in trying to win it for themselves to use my link and pass it on /post it where you think someone may want to buy the cd. I would greatly appreciate itAmd it will allow you to share the news without signing up for anything.
MORE than that though I hope that all do join in this promotion and try their hardest to beat me to the top. OVERALL I want as many people to own this cd as possible because one the best things in life is when the most people possible are happy and feeling good. I TRULY believe Joe's music can acccomplish this easier than most things. I have tried to analyze the different possibilities with this and it seems to me if you have a chance at this guitar prize package you will probably be motivated the most, and reach the most people if you are working toward that. I know for myself I seem to be coming up with more ideas of reaching out to people with the motivation of a slight possibility of winning the prize so that what i want to encourage others to do. Please believe that the biggest prize of all is the maximum amount of fans possible being able to own this live cd set and the good vibes it will create all around.
at the same time though I do know many of you do not care to sign up for things so please feel free to use my link to pre-order and encourage others, or really its more like share with them this great opportunity to buy Joe's cd from him and let him ship it to you.
However it happens, please help spread this thing far and wide so more people can have the great joy of this music and ensure that Joe keeps it coming to us in new ways!!!!

can't wait for this disc set.

Oh and if you do want to use my link its right here (below). 163!!!!

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

There has been concern that the order form only allows one copy to be ordered at a time. There is an effort to rectify that.

Re: Official Word on the JB Live Pre-release Affiliate Program!

I've been Spammed by Roy and Jane to get it through them. I hope this doesn't turn into drug wars...
