Please re-send it.
If it's something all participates can use I will pass it on if that's ok with you.

www.savings-online.com  goes to the page for merchants, not buyers.

If you have used that for the link in your store, the buyer will go to the page soliciting participants, not to the list of stores.

Also, the images seem to be set up to go to the merchant's page, not the customer's page:

a href="http://www.savings-online.com/"> img src="http://www.businessesgrowingtogether.com/Discount/Img/holidaybutton2.jpg"></a

I copied the image, and then linked it to the page where the stores are listed alphabetically.

OK - Maybe this was obvious to everyone else, but I thought it worth mentioning in case there are any more like me out there that just copied the coding as is...  I did, and found it didn't take the buyer where it is I think we want them to go.

I now have a text link on my store's home page and a linked image on my links page.  It's the only image link on my links page... but I had to put it at the very bottom... otherwise the spacing looked really awkward...

www.savings-online.com is where the buyers should be pointed to.
I am not sure if you read the page or if you just assuned it was a sellers participation page (2 different pages actually).  BUT I have re-worded it a little bit.  Let me know what you think now.

So sorry.  My bad!
I will go fix my links today.
Because I saw the images and code for sellers to use on that page, I assumed it was a 'for sellers' page.  But the text at the top is clearly for buyers.

Now that I think about it, we WOULD want the buyers to help spread the word, too... in THEIR blogs, emails, etc, wouldn't we?


Guess that comes from being the new kid on the block - I chould leave the thinking to the grown-ups!

I am thinking of adding more pages ---

Promotioning Tips and Ideas
and
links to blogs promoting the program

Then I plan to just send one weekly or so email to participants highlighting the updated promoting ideas with links to the pages.

There is the politically correct issue
Christmas
Hannaku (spelling)
Kwansi (spelling)
who knows what other Holiday - which is why this is a Holiday program and  not something else, LOL!

It's been suggested to do a countdown until 12/31/08 -- tend of the program -- might go with that option

Countdown is a very good idea.

Date/Time Calendars on a site page will do a good job, too.

The time part of the calendar reindexes the site and often.
