Create Affiliate Programs

Minggu, 08 Februari 2009

You can’t beat someone placing your ad on his or her site free, can you? But how do you do that? If you’re selling a product or service, you can do this by creating your own affiliate program. It works the same way as participating in someone else’s, but this time, you offer a commission to
sites whose visitors click through your ad, then buy something. To do this, you’re going to need to set up an organized system to track your click through rate and sales, set commission rates that you can afford and are willing to pay, and a system to pay your affiliates. It will take thought and a lot of time to get this rolling, but getting affiliates can be rather easy and you can be less picky than if you were buying ad space on their sites. You can find your affiliates by simply searching for sites that you think would be ideal. Send them an e-mail, introduce them to you and your site, instruct them on what you’re offering, and how they can sign up. Target higher ranked sites at first because those sites are more likely to bring you sales. In addition, those sites will be the first to be able to offer testimonials about your affiliate program. That will draw in more affiliates. Again, just make sure you can afford to pay what you say you will. The worst thing you can do is make your affiliates mad, or, worse, put yourself out of business.
