Affiliate Questions

Hi All.

I am new to this forum and thought that some people on here might be able to point me in the right direction.

We just released our affiliate program that took us about a year to build. trying to figure out the best place to market our program. It seems like some of the big affiliate sites like cj.com are so saturated.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Personally recruiting sites that would be a natural fit for your program. Being a new company, most good affiliates will not give you a try unless you throw some cash their way. Let us know how you get along! You might try to find some companies that do personal recruiting and give them a try/finders fee for affiliates that perform.

Shareasale has a low entry to barrier and they might make a good starting point as far as advertising your program, recruiting for you etc. I get a trickle of sales from them.

Start with pay per impression, then pay per click, then offer sale commissions.

walk before you crawl. no serious affiliate will waste their time on offer you haven't proved.

pay per impression help you test you ads
pay per click helps you test you landing conversion page
Once you have a sure fire system making money Affiliate will start contacting you.

also pay per lead is a good way to get yourself notice in affiliate sites.

As far as affiliate acquisition goes, I would start with the low hanging fruit first. Do reverse backlink checks on your competitors and start approaching their affiliates about your offer.

They're already sold on affiliate marketing and your type of offer. All you have to do is convince them that you're a more profitable partner.
