How to Promote Yourself as a LivePerson Expert, Part 1: Friendly URL

October 3, 2008 at 2:36 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments


As you might already know, LivePerson recently implemented the Friendly URL, a web address that functions as a direct link to your profile page.

But did you know that when clients come to LivePerson through this direct link, the commission that they take from those sessions is significantly lower? Just 14%!

It`s worthwhile to guide people to LivePerson by means of your Friendly URL because it`s a win/win situation – it will mean more customers for LivePerson, and it will mean even higher income, from those customers, for you!

There are a number of ways to drum up business utilizing the Friendly URL. Here are a few ideas, just to get you thinking:

Advertise in the paper. Take out an ad in the classified section of your local or regional newspaper with a short message about your services, mentioning your Friendly URL link.

Create business cards featuring your personalized web link. Most cities have a local print shop, but if you prefer the convenience of the Internet, check out sites such as for affordable business cards that will allow you to feature your Friendly URL prominently.

Turn your car into a billboard. It isn`t very expensive to create a magnet or decal to place on your car that will advertise your services. Just include your Friendly URL, and the next time you want to get out there and promote yourself, all you have to do is take a drive.

Talk about yourself. Mention your link during conversations you have with people and add your Friendly URL to your voicemail message. Keep a few of the business cards mentioned above tucked away in your wallet – you never know when you`ll meet a potential new client!

Include your Friendly URL everywhere. Anywhere else you`d have your contact information, include your Friendly URL. Make sure the link is on your email signature, letterhead, fax cover sheets, and return address labels. To add your Friendly URL to your email signature, click on your provider below:

MS Office
Outlook Express

These are just some ideas to consider. Use your imagination to think of others. Promotional items with your Friendly URL printed on them? T-Shirts with your personalized web link? The possibilities are endless!

  2. Just letting you know, read the forums. Not many experts are getting the 14% discount. Hardly anyone can see where they are getting 14% compared to 30% even when they tracked it to their link!

    Business is business though, it just would of promoted a lot of people to work harder at advertising their link. In a way, that’s why LP charges such a high fee to experts so they can advertise for you. If taking time out to advertise yourself and not get that discount it isn’t worth including your link when you can place your phone or email and not be charged an extra 30%.
