Steve, Do You Know How to Do This?

Hi Steve,

I know you from Lesley Fountain's Friends in Business forum and I have a quick question. I'm not a programmer or a coder, so I'm quite confused as to how to do this...

I'm launching a teleseminar series (interviewing experts) and will lead off with a free promo call. My experts are also my JV partners and I need to set them up with affiliate ID's/links. Trouble is, I've never created an affiliate program before.

I was going to use PayDotCom.com to manage my affiliate program as well as process payments through PayPal. But PDC only cookies someone when they get to the order page.

I need to be able to track which attendees came from which expert for the FREE call (and then through to the paid series).

No money changes hands initially. I'm simply asking people to sign up for a free teleseminar. Once people submit their name and e-mail address, my AWeber autoresponder sends them the call-in details.

I was told the way to do this is to add a custom field for affiliate ID's in my AWeber form. Apparently PDC then passes the affiliate ID to my product page, so I need to grab it and send it to AWeber.

Then I'm supposed to find the field that says affiliate ID in AWeber and look at where it says value="" and replace it w/ the following:

value="< ?php echo $ _ REQUEST['id'] ; ?>"

(Forgive the spaces. It just disappeared when I ran it all together.)

...and then rename the file to .php

...then apparently I can construct the affiliate links on the fly from AWeber and make sure no commissions are lost.

Someone told me I need a PHP script to do this. Do you know how I would do this? I'm not a coder or a programmer, so I'm pretty confused about it right now.
