    Question How Do I Find Affiliates For My Affiliate Program?


    Hi,
    We have been in business for several years, but we just recently implemented an affiliate program of our own. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for ways to promote an affiliate program other than on our primary website and the associated ones...

    I would appreciate any suggestions.
    Thanks,
    Dannye

    Search google for the querys that are most important for your products. See which websites rank high. Look to see if any are affiliate sites. If they are study the rewards that they get and offer them a lot better to sign on with you.

    ALso look for SEO savvy sites that are related to your terms but not ranking for them yet. Make them a generous offer to promote your products.

    Buy paid reviews on popular Make Money Online blogs. If the review is positive you are sure to get many new affiliates because those blogs are read by webmasters.

    Of course your program has to be interesting from a webmaster's point of view.

    Smile Thanks!


    I will try those things. We write articles and submit them to article submission sites, and I have started including my affiliate program link in some of those.

    Most of the posts I see on the web are about people trying to sell others' products rather than what to do if you're trying to sell your own. So I appreciate your feedback.

    I probably didn't express myself clearly enough. We're not looking for companies so we can sell their products. We want companies to sell our products.

    We have our own private affiliate program, and I don't want to be an advertiser through CJ.

    Hi !

    There are many free and paid ways to promote your affiliate program. It depends upon you for which your will opt for.

    If you go for free, submit articles in article directories, submit in affiliate program directories, join related forum where you can promote your program.

    Or as previously stated search Google and find out who sell your products via affiliate.

    For paid, Join affiliate network, where you will get lots of interested affiliates to join your affiliate program. Go for Google adwords, Google adsence, banner advertising etc. By doing this you can get instant result and sale.

    Hope it will help you.

    Thanks!
    I did get approved for posting to AssociatePrograms.com, but so far the affiliates are all outside the USA even though it says that we only ship within the USA.

    Oh, well, I suppose it will eventually work itself out.

    Hi Dannye

    Please let me know which country you are targeting and the products. Can i know your website name.

    I think you should join affiliate network on Pay on Performance model. This is the best way. You will have to pay when you get a lead.

    Cheers
