One of the things I would like to do is contact companies within our niche that do not have an affiliate program and try to convince them to allow us to sell their products and services on our websites.
Our niche is financial by nature, and the micro-niche I would like to tackle is small to medium sized companies that offer patient financing for cosmetic, orthodontic and other elective surgeries.
The problem is, outside of convincing them that we can sell their products and services, is how do I implement their products and services on our websites and create a way of tracking the product sales.
I mean, obviously we can offer them an advertising rate and try to close the deal that way; and I'm sure there are out of the box programs that will allow me to track leads that are generated.
However, ideally, I would like to create a system that rewards us on sales, not only for this specific niche, but for other niches as well.
Simply put, after I contact a supplier of widgets and convince them to let me sell their products, what is the best way to set up this process?
Any suggestions on how to do this would be appreciated.
