>>Yeah - I have tried that but honestly it doesn't work - and they are doing well - but I need more of them - do you know what I mean ?
Did you offer the good affiliates a pile of money upfront and offer better commissions than what they are currently getting?
Have you gone through and joined the forums for affiliate managers at linkedin and facebook? I see some new posts in these forums where someone just like you posts a help wanted and they get plenty of potential affiliate managers with experience ready to help.
Explore all your affiliate channels - Find out where affiliates hang out:
1. Affiliate networks - some affiliates will not sign up directly and prefer to sign up via networks. I see you offer direct relationship with affiliates, have you explored signing up with at least one network? Ad networks also give you exposure when you are new (usually) and will get you noticed by affiliates. The networks are preferred because of third party tracking and also allows affiliates to watch your EPC stats and see how well you perform as a merchant.
2. Niche sites - participate not only in affiliate forums but also niche forums. Some blog owners or hobby site owners may not know what affiliate marketing is so you may have to do some educating there but that is where you'll also find probably the most passionate site owners who would be happy to learn that they can actually make money from their blog.
3. Affiliate conventions - book a table/booth and start talking. Hand out goodies or offer a peek at your service.
Thank you for the great help - I am trying here - not only affiliate forums but all kind and yes we are thinking about booking a both somewhere and just try to meet affiliates personally - any good ones you reccommend?
