Cash in by setting up your own Affiliate Network

Inviting others to sign up to your affiliate program is a great way to increase sales. Setting up your network is fairly straight forward and there are many off the shelf programs on the web to make the process hassle free.

Cutting out the middle man

If you are signed up to any affiliate program then you know how this works, if you make a sale you get a cut or percentage of the sale. So just reverse this method and get your own affiliates to sell for you.

Finally Keep the Spammers out!

Whenever you run an affiliate program there is always a danger of attracting spammers who will stop at nothing to line their pockets. You have to be diligent and monitor your affiliates, so if you get a warning from your hosting company or you receive an email from a disgruntled customer take immediate action and terminate the offending affiliate.

Ignore this at your peril, it’s better to be safe than sorry, if you don’t act fast you could find yourself blacklisted and even have your hosting terminated. By all means contact the affiliate and ask them to take action by removing the spammer from their list.

There are plenty of good reasons to start your own affiliate program but even if you’re not ready for it yet you can still check it out, I haven’t called all the options in this post so give me your thoughts. I will follow up with a post on tracking and managing your affiliate programs in the next couple of days so stay tuned.

Thanks’ for reading

    I used payloadz too. Still, I’m looking for something new now.
    “Finally Keep the Spammers out!?” Well, some of them are still manage to beat the filters, but overall it is a good service.

  • Cool post about affiliates, keeping them and selecting them is the key to the success. Keeping the spammers out is the most important thing to do to avoid being banned or blacklisted. The wrong step in this business can lead us to a complete distress and money loss. Thanks for the programs and links, some of them have been useful for us.
