We finally have a product of our own to sell and want other sites to sell it too. We can afford to give a good commission as we're more interested in getting the product out there and getting the links back from affiliate partners.

So where do we start? We have some coders who might be able to put one together by themselves, but all in all it would be best to know which affiliate software we need to buy, borrow or steal!

Can anyone help?

may i ask why you want to develop your own rather than join an exsisting network, is it that they're too pricey?

I hope you get helpful answers , I am about to start experimenting with java links an other affiliate technologies

Good luck

why not to join, as it will take a vast amount of money in marekting expenses to get affilaites.

Call me dumb, but i wasn't aware that you could just join a site that would do it all for you...

But then would the affiliate link still point back to our site? That's half the incentive there.

In any case, we could target 50-100 relevant sites with about half a day's emails and phone calls so marketing may not be pricey.

Are you looking for affiliate links to send you targeted traffic that converts, or to use them for link popularity and PageRank?

A lot of affiliates will use the "no-follow" tag on any affiliate links

If you do a search for "Affiliate networks" you will find a few networks.
