Tie sales efforts to purchase

Ted Penner

I have a youtube video with a pitch for a subscription service.

I plan to get some assistance in promoting the service and want to find a way to tie the link being passed around by each individual salesperson, back to that individual so that I know what commission to pay them if those viewers become customers.

Assistance in figuring out how to do this is greatly appreciated.

This is typically done by giving each salesperson their own link, either natively (www.mydomain.tld/salesperson1) or via querystring (www.mydomain.tld/product?salesperson=1).  They both amount to the same thing.  Note that in either case, the unique identifier can be obscured.

Is there any way to get the video to appear embedded in the body of whatever they are passing around also?
Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information Systems
That depends on what they're passing around.  Some email clients will render videos, some won't.  If you send them to a web page (or maybe to YouTube), you could let them set the video that way.
