    Affiliate networks


    Is it a good idea to join more than one network? for example i am joining clixgalore and would probley like to try shareasale as well if it makes sense? I figure the more people selling your stuff, the more money everybody makes. Am i correct with this idea or should i stick to one program at a time. Sorry for the questions.

    I highly recommend ShareASale. As a full time affiliate marketer I can tell you that ShareASale has a high level of integrity, a *lot* of tools and resources affiliates can use to promote your products in addition to attractive payment options - consolidated payments, direct deposit. Their support staff is totally accessible. They also have by far the highest level of trust and goodwill with affiliates of any other network - including the "big ones"

    But don't take my word for it - check out some of the affiliate boards and ask them what they think of SAS.

    For selling your own product through a network, it can be worth considering, I'd imagine, but it depends on the results you're getting right now. There's no point in going through the expense of using multiple networks if you don't get extra affiliates selling your merchandise or save money on the costs of running your affiliate program.

    Shareasale is an excellent and reputable network.

    Re: Multiple Networks - stephfoster is correct; in fact what usually ends up happenning is the same affiliates will join the program at each network and then promote whichever version seems to convert better, has the best creative options, the most reliable tracking, or - if you run different commission structures at each - the one that pays better.

    That being said, I think you'll be likely to recruit more affiliates - and better performing ones - thru ShareASale than where you are now.

    The first thing I would do is increase the length of your cookies. Most pay per sale programs I've seen offer at least 90 day cookies. Many offer 365 day cookies or lifetime cookies. I'd also start a commission structure whereby the more sales they generate in a given time, the higher their % per sale structure. This may encourage affiliates to work harder and attract higher volume affiliates to your program. With regards on actual recruiting of affiliates, here are some methods that work:
    Email
    Pay per Click
    Forum Participation
    Private Forums
    Strategic Partnerships
    Direct Mail
    Phone
    Paid Advertising

    I know Shareasale and some of the top affiliates there very well. I think your program would do very well there.

    It is definitely worth trying out more than one network. You've gotta get your product, service out there. Try out a few and find your feet - see which brings the best affiliates. As far as the actual networks r concerned, yes CJ, Clickbank and Linkshare are the older, more established networks, but don;t b too quick to write off the smaller networks. Checked out two good ones the other day, CPA Empire
    and TrafficSynergy.

    I have joined one CPC affiliate program. Fortunately, I meet its keyword and I can earn $60 per day.

    I would try as many networks as possible if you are considering going this route.
