    Buy online, support CarAudioJunkies

    First of all, I want to thank everyone who has donated money, product, and time to the forum. Your effort has really helped me with the costs associated with running the site. Whenever the coffers started running low, you guys always come to the rescue...but I've just always felt uncomfortable asking for more donations. Any future contributions will be greatly appreciated, but I've discovered another way that guy guys can help support the site, and it won't cost you an additional dime.

    I recently signed up with a link affiliation program called VigLink. It works in a similar way to clicking a banner ad, but it works with standard links. If someone posts a link to a store or certain product, the plugin checks to see if the link is part of the affiliate network. If it is part of the network, it adds a bit of code to the link. If someone clicks the link and decides to buy something, CAJ gets a small sales commission. Most commissions are paid when an actual sale is made, where others generate a few cents just from the link being clicked.

    I created this thread with links to a lot of the popular retailers that many of us use http://www.caraudiojunkies.com/showt...mething-online. By going to one of these sites via the forum, you help with our revenue.

    So, say for instance, you were looking to buy a new radio for your vehicle. Instead of going directly to Sonic Electronix, use our link instead. You will still get the radio at the same price, but CAJ will get monies for the advertisement. Since you were going to buy it anyway, simply making a few clicks will help support the site.

    It's not just for car audio stuff. We have thousands of companies that are part of the network...from AutoZone to Walmart and from clothing to hotels. So before you make that next online purchase, check the list to see if your store is there. If not, post a link to the store, give it a few seconds, and then click your link. If it's part of the network, the plugin will automatically add the affiliation code.

    I hope this all makes sense.

    BTW...some ad-blocking programs and script-blockers may cause the affiliate links to not work, so you may have to disable it on CAJ alone.

    Thanks for your continued support,
    Alan

    Do we have to start the process each time from those links, Al, for you to get a return?

    Depending on the site, the cookie is good for 1 to 3 days...as long as you don't link from some other site which would overwrite the cookie.

    VigLink pays after 60 days, so I finally got paid commission from stuff bought during Christmas. It's not a whole lot, but every bit helps the cause.

    Re: Buy online, support CarAudioJunkies

    If I were to add items in my cart. Then go to CAJ some later time and click on the link (example sonic) would you get the credit? Because if I add items to my cart, once I click on your link, it takes me to SE and all the previous item are already in my cart? Just wonder, because I something add items over time then make one purchase. Don't know if my question makes sense.

    I honestly don't know for sure. I think the cookie gets applied at checkout

    I wanted to bump this back to the top. If you order your Christmas toys thru the CAJ store up top, it helps pay the bills.

    Thanks!
