    What Affiliate Program?


    Hey Folks,

    I run a very conservative business education, accounting, finance, investment oriented site. We enjoy hundreds of one-way BLs, mostly authority sites, with linking out to only 7 sites. We run no ads of any kind except Adsense in our glossary. Those ads do reasonably well.

    We are now looking at developing a whole new section on the site where we link out to primarily .gov and .org authority sites on a georgraphic basis to assist accounting professionals locate resources. My thought is that, within the planned pages, to also offer links to accounting software and online/distance-learning business/accounting/finance degrees. I would like those affiliate links to be text links only so that they do not appear to be advertisements. We must keep the aura of conservatism.

    I was wondering if any of you are aware of or could recommend an existent affiliate program offering advertising clients in the accounting software and online/distance-learning business/accounting/finance degrees space? Or am I searching for affiliate programs that are non-existent?

    I believe the University of Phoenix (Apollo Group) offers something like what you're describing. Good luck!

    Cygnus... thanks. I am aware of UOP as an individual educational institution. Am I barking up the wrong tree thinking that there would be an affiliate program that would include most online degree programs within the one program?

    Hmmm, maybe.

    I did a quick search to see what I can find. There seems to be plenty that offer individual solutions, so it might be necessary to provide a few different text links, rather than one that encompasses everything.

    http://www.clickslink.com/education.html

    Tell you what though...if you can find (or develop) a program that solves the problem by including all available online education offerings into a simple to sell service, I'd build a few sites to promote it. In fact, I think I'll put that on my list. I'm tied up for the next 18 months or so on other projects, but I think that has merit.

    Azoogleads is currently advertising an offer that pays $35 per lead which is pretty hign and I think it features most of the well known colleges.

    Hope this helps and best of luck!
