How to seek affiliates efficiently?



4:13 pm on Jun 18, 2013 (gmt 0)

Hi everyone!

I'm a newbie here and I've been scratching my head to find the most efficient way to get affiliates for a new program (already joined a big aff. network)...

Please, any tips are so welcome! ;-)

Oh and PS: Can anybody recommend some good French affiliate forums? I have totally no idea of that...

Thanks in advance!

a) pay for every sale
b) pay a nice percentage
c) post about your program in affiliation forums where specifics are allowed (not this one)
d) back to point a)

If you have a GOOD program & pay well, Top Affiliates will find you.

What network did you join?

@Lexur: Thanks for your great advice! ;-0

We do pay for every sale and the percentage is from 8% to 12%, I think it's pretty attractive, as our AOV's around 90 Άγ.

Pity that it's not allowed here to post our program...But I was wondering if they have some paid opportunities, heehee!

Anyway, I'll look for more affiliation forums to post about our program...

@Mackin_USA: Thanks! I hope they'll find us!

We joined Webgains France for now. Results seem not bad so far... ;-)

In 2012, B2C ecommerce sales grew 21.1% to top $1 trillion for the first time, according to new global estimates by eMarketer.

This year, sales will grow 18.3% to $1.298 trillion worldwide, eMarketer estimates, as Asia-Pacific surpasses North America to become the world's No. 1 market for B2C ecommerce sales.

2/5/2013 article shows how France fits into the market.

1. Make sure you have a page that gives the details on your affiliate program - ensure the SEO is done to reflect [your topic] affiliate and associate program
2. If your topic is a service, you may consider reaching out to the top websites in the niche and offering them a free trial to try out the program and explain you have an affiliate program available if they're interested. Keep the pitch short and sweet - AKA, get to the point. I get these daily and the shorter it is the more likely they are to get me to reach back if it's an interesting (to me) product or service. After a paragraph, if they don't have the gist laid out, I stop reading.
3. Do competitive intel on your competitors programs - check out their compensation, cookie length, bonus programs, etc and be sure you're on par (and ideally better) than the competition.
4. Do backlink searches to your competitors affiliate creatives - you'd be surprised how many affiliates that will lead you to.

@Sugarrae: Thanks so much for sharing!

We're creating a special page for our affiliate program and just booked a banner ad on the abestweb's forum (only targeting on their French visitors). I hope it'll work out! ;-)
