Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I figured I'd just inquire with the rest of the community about what are the optimal things that make or break an affiliate program for you all.
I'll start it out:
1) Real-time stats
2) Prompt monthly payouts
3) Flexible ad formats and flexibility in ad formats
What else does everyone prefer to see from an affiliate program?
-Content, lots of content :) Some affiliate programs have massive libraries of content on their products that they don't use on their sites, some of which is very useful.
-Good payouts. Doesn't have to be the best in the market, but has to be decent enough to be worth the time/effort.
-Website stability...last week I launched an ad campaign for program I just joined and checked in on the site over a period of 5 days. On day 3 the server crashed for 12 hours...it crashed again on day 5 for about 4 hours. I wasn't amused and dropped the program.
Also, what ads does everyone find to be the most useful and/or productive?
What's the communities take on this?
