Plano, TX (PRWEB) February 5, 2008
CardsDirect LLC (http://www.cardsdirect.com), an online leader in customizable, printed business greeting cards and holiday cards, announced the launch of its brand new online affiliate program. To create a successful launch, CardsDirect has partnered with ShareASale.com for its leadership in the affiliate network area. With this program, affiliate websites can apply at http://www.cardsdirect.com/about_us/AffiliateInformation.aspx to promote the CardsDirect card offering to visitors of their sites. Once approved, the affiliates can begin earning commissions for online greeting card sales via links from their websites.
Approved affiliates will have access to a stable of graphical banners and text links specific to greeting cards and holiday cards throughout the year. This new affiliate channel will link CardsDirect to strong marketing and content partners that already have loyal and consistent traffic. According to Ward Mahowald, co-founder of CardsDirect, "The primary goal of CardsDirect.com is to offer the best selection of greeting cards to customers in search of a way to express sentiments for specific holidays. By launching this program through the ShareASale.com network, we are now in a position to be where our customers are shopping and it allows us to fulfill their needs."
Working with ShareASale.com will allow CardsDirect to continuously improve the program and extend the reach of its brand by adding new tools and functionality as the program evolves. "In recent years, we've seen increased demand for custom, personalized stationery and greeting cards, and CardsDirect allows consumers to use their own photo, artwork or pick their own design, and they can include their own individual message if they choose too. It's a great site, and we're pleased to have CardsDirect as part of the ShareASale network," says Carolyn Tang, Director of Client Services at ShareASale. "Additionally, the CardsDirect affiliate team is so active and engaged, I have no doubt this will be a successful marketing partnership all around."
