Hi, I am an affiliate for an on online auction company which is aspiring to give eBay a run for its money. The company's twist on the online auction concept is "reverse auctions". If you know anything about reverse auctions, you will know that in order for it to work, there has to be a lot of bidding/viewing activity to encourage the prices to drop. To accomplish this, my company will offer software to their licensees such as myself to promote to potential customers. This software, while useful in its own right, can be loaded with a limited number of free credits to be given to these potential buyers to use at the auction. Also, the software is designed to be viral, in that the consumers to whom I offer the free software to will be given the opportunity to receive additional credits if they get their friends to join. We affiliates receive a percentage of all the activity that we generate, several generations down, so it is potentially very lucrative for us. Anyway, I feel the best way to target this would be to solicit current eBay buyers on eBay itself, however I'm not sure the best way to approach this. I've considered getting an eBay e-mail scraper and sending out bulk e-mails, but I'm not sure I want to deal with all the spam issues. I'm also considering placing an eBay classified ad, but I'm not sure I can get around the digital download restriction because I can't put the software on a disk as I believe this software has to be downloaded direct from the company's server in order for me to be correctly credited as the referrer. Any ideas on how best to do this?
