Hello everybody,

Thanks for your input. I'd like to ask some more questions.

> 3. make a chart and compare with other banner server
> software ( feature, speed )

Do you suggest setting it up on our site? Won't BanManPro and
others object?

Another concern is that not all of them are possible to
objectively test.

We will: we are working on ASP (application service provider)
version of the manager. This they will be more interested in.

> 5. Post a "free" press release.

What do you mean by "free" press release? What are the
examples of places to post it to?

We used PRNewswire service to distribute our commercial
release of the manager and got zero response from it.

Although there's a thread starting on CJ, LinkShare and such,
still I'd like to ask in what way you manage your affiliate
program? The technical side of it is quite easy. I'm mostly
concerned about the financial part of it: paying affiliates.
Although we are registered in the USA, we are based in Europe
and this limits our financial flexibility quite drastically.
What could be the ways to solve this problem?

I participate in some boards and am going to join several
more. This list is a nice one too.

Thanks Don, this is a helpful article.
