August 5th – 9th, 2012
We arrived in Dublin, Ireland on Monday, August 6th at 12:45 and drove directly to Cork where we delightfully were met with a huge crowd, numbering in the 500’s, of Banners Broker affiliates. We were very excited for such a great turn out! It was a very welcoming site which we very much appreciated. The crowd was upbeat, enthusiastic and excited for the day ahead. At this point, Paul McCarthy, our Independent Contractor in Ireland, had just finished delivering a BB Presentation, so we went straight into the training. Below in a picture, you’ll see a jam packed room full of affilates for the presentation.
The group was very eager to learn and asked several great questions. The feedback we received was so pleasing to hear! The BB crowd really loved the training and especially on Ad Inventory and mentioned that it really cleared things up on how the panels work.
The three main points below were addressed by the audience:
-We need to edit our name to match our I.D.
-We need to be able to upload documents after the initial upload, and lastly,
-We are premium affiliates, but only have a load limit of a standard affiliate.
The great news is, shortly after, the BB team spoke with Chris regarding the three concerns and within hours we made the changes to the first two issues. The third issue is not an issue, but rather a quick fix. The affiliate status is set to standard and not premium. The affiliate simply needs to submit a support ticket for the change.
Today we are in Galway, situated in west central Ireland. What a beautiful town Galway is. Again we found the affiliates so excited and enthusiastic about BB. Tomorrow the BB team is heading to Dublin, which we are very much looking towards to.
We would like to thank all of you for such a warm welcoming to Ireland – such a delightful experience!
