Can I promote you in Adwords, etc? Does VehicleMRI have any Pay-Per-Click guidelines?

Yes, you may use Pay per click (PPC) as these ads can be a fast way to gain new referrals. We want you to do PPC, but the RIGHT WAY, without legal problems, and with smarter targeting and bidding practices. Unchecked PPC affiliates and poorly designed ads lead to higher costs in the PPC space and can negatively impact our Brand and cost you a lot of click money.

You may NOT direct link to VehicleMRI.com. You MUST drive traffic to your OWN landing page. If you need any clarification on this, please contact us.

Some helpful details and tips for PPC advertising:

1. You must target only USA, and Canada - no exceptions. Our website is set up to only take orders from these countries.

2. You may NOT make time-limited special offer ads without prior approval. Imagine if you were advertising an offer that had ended. This can cause consumer confusion or even legal issues if such an ad runs past the end date of the special. We notify our affiliates of any special offers which they are permitted to advertise and the expiration of these offers.

3. Unsubstantiated claims/offers are not permitted. Claiming 'Official Site' in your PPC ad is also not allowed.

4. Affiliates are prohibited from bidding on trademarked/branded terms, as well as misspellings/variations thereof, including, but not limited to: VehicleMRI, CarMRI, FleetMRI, InsuranceMRI, AuctionMRI, DiagnosticMRI, MRI. Use of trademarked/branded terms in longtail keywords is also restricted, but may be allowed with permission. General keyword or phrase advertising/targeting is permitted so long as your ad is not deceiving, negative and does not promote a special offer that has ended.

Conversion Tips: Try to use the keyword or phrase in the title and description of your Text Ad. Google offers Dynamic Keyword insertion to help you do this. Make sure you land the visitor on the correct page. In Google, make use of the 'negative keywords' to further target your audience. Typo keyword bidding is permitted if is not on variations of our trademark related keywords.

These guidelines are to help us protect our company and Brand but also to help you get the best targeting and results from your campaign. For all guidelines and policies see the Affiliate Terms of Service and Conditions.

No, VehicleMRI requires a separate subscription and login.

Although participation in the VehicleMRI Affiliate Program is free, quick, and easy we encourage our affiliates to sign up for a VehicleMRI subscription to experience our unique and powerful MRI inspections first hand.

As an affiliate you will have access to demo reports of previous VehicleMRI inspections to show prospective customers.

The demo reports are good, but if someone really wants to see the full power of VehicleMRI, you may want to run a live inspection for them.

If you are going to perform live VehicleMRI inspections and generate reports, you will need a VehicleMRI subscription and a Vehicle Interface. As you know VehicleMRI consists of a monthly subscription fee and report fees based on the number and type of reports you generate.

Even though there is a small fee involved for each report you generate, we think showing VehicleMRI Live is the best way to demonstrate its power, so to assist you in paying for these fees as you get started, we are offering the following incentives.

Incentive 1: When signing up for your VehicleMRI account, use the coupon Code below. Your first month subscription fee is FREE and the $50 coupon code is good for report fees during your first 30 days.

Coupon Code: TRYMRI

Incentive 2: If you purchase a vehicle interface when you sign up for your VehicleMRI subscription (or within 30 days of signup), you will also be issued a $100 gift certificate within your account. This certificate can be applied toward your subsequent monthly subscription and report fees only so you can run even more live VehicleMRI demos.

Note: Gift certificate can only be used for VehicleMRI subscription and report fees. There are no refunds of the gift certificate, if you terminate your subscription prior to using it, it is lost. It is non-transferable.
