    Hi Raya,
    This is a nice initiative. One suggestion I have is to include tangible results that these affiliate marketers achieved, esp, impressions, clicks, CTR and revenue. While some people might not want to disclose amount of money earned, but giving a range would also encourage people to act more to achieve something like they are reading on screen.

    Hello Raya,

    I would like to suggest that they should make a case study that how they generate traffic and made sales through SEO, PPC, Email Marketing and SEM.

    What do you think?
