I've just put together our affiliate program, with payout terms suggested by WW members.

We offer two-tier recurring monthly payouts for the life of the contract and a flat one-time payout option. We're using LinkTrust, which (from what I've been told) tracks referrals very accurately.

Now that I'm setup and ready to go, which 5 sites or networks should I approach?

Just looking for a little help, let me know if you have a suggestion or two.

Thanks in advance!

Which sites demographics fit your products? Those are the sites to directly target. As far as networks to go after, it really depends on what you want to pay SAS will be on the lower end of the cost setup, while cj would be on the higher end.

@eljefe3 - I appreciate the feedback. I've done a bit of research and I've found a few good networks, so I should be good to go. Thanks.

It also depends on where you want to market your products geographically. affili.net for example is very strong in germany, but rather weak in the rest of the world. In addition, there are networks that put a great deal on optimized ads by publishers (with or without direct redirect), while others only encourage organic traffic.
